Check me out

So I got on Jon Friedberg's show UTG and had a round table discussion w/ Jon and Brian Rast, who is a successful high stakes player. Link here...

It's weird seeing oneself in front of a camera. I happen to think my voice sounds different in real life vs on camera but idk. Anyway I had fun being on the show and nothing was scripted so it was cool to just express our thoughts as the show went along.

Lately I've been busy w/ family. My wife's 2 sisters are in town and I'm in the whole showing them around town mode. Considering Vegas is a mecca for tourism, there are lots of things to do and show, esp. for 1st timers. So far we've taken them to the Fountains of Bellagio (great scene of it at the end of "Oceans 11", the remade version), the Gondolas of Venetian, the new City Center and Aria hotel/casino, Fremont Street, Bryce and Zion Canyon, Red Rock Canyon, and various restaurants and shopping centers around town (latter one only inv. the girls..I do not like shopping at all). We're set to go watch Cirque Du Soleil's "O" show at the Bellagio tomorrow night then maybe hit up a club or 2 then go to Los Angeles for a couple of days so I'm gonna be busy for the next few days. It really is exciting and fun living in Vegas, for my wife and me anyways.

As for poker, I guess I can say it's going. Good news I'm winning, bad news I'm $11,500 below ev...fml. Again I'll just keep on keepin' on until I run good again (wow that seems like ages ago now).

Funny thing happened other day playing a drooler hu...
