No BBT money yet (Al has said he emailed FT and is just waiting to hear back from them) and no withdrawal check that I requested on June 7th either. Even with these setbacks, I am still getting pumped for Vegas like an 11:59 miracle will save this trip.
Weekend preparations include getting all the laundry done and cleaning up the house for Alissa, since I feel really bad she's going to be manning the house alone for a week without me, a first in the 6 years we've been together. I try not to bring the Vegas trip up too much as she does get a little down about not having me around, but I assure her it will be well worth it after we score a nice cash and can finish the basement (see, P.M.A. thanks Matusow!)
Non-house work, poker preparations include:
- Watching Rounders all the way through at least twice
- The half-way done big game $50 buy-in on Sunday for my league. I still am doing crappy in the league for some unknown reason and even when I am playing well I get river flushed by donkey Unimpressed's overshove on a 6 high flush draw. (Not bitter at all ^^)
- Packing and maybe some clothes shopping
- Setting my iPod playlists
Speaking of playlists…..
So far I'm thinking that I'll play Sultans of Swing as a pre-event #51 song and then go right into the Techno/dance music. For some reason I can only focus at my best at the table when I'm listening to techno music, I think its something to do with ADD.
So that’s it for now, hit Foxwoods or Mohegan up tonight for some last time cash games before the alleged trip, maybe I can double my bankroll and wont have to depend on other people or things to make my way.
