No no.

The smart ones make them removable. So they are taken out and cleaned.

The ones at the MGM tables, the medal thing is attached via a Velcro thing on the bottom and can be pulled out and cleaned.

I'll work on that! I just went from 30 vacation days at my old job to 0 at my new one until early 2013. But it was a good career move, and if it gets me any degen credit I heavily weighed poker into my decision to take it and move out here from Denver.

What time did you leave? How long?

I always leave at odd hours so it's not bad.

I got on the highway at like 11:00. It took about 6.5 hours and I live about 30 miles East of LA. This was Nov. 25 There is some random stuff on that route that will make you question your sanity too. World's Tallest Thermometer?

Pro move is to drive to Vegas Saturday AM and leave on Monday. This requires/allows you to take Monday off of work. I like taking Monday off of work.

Funniest thing I ever saw at a poker table was when the obnoxious drunk picked up his beer and the metal cupholder came out of the table with it. He takes a long swig and the cupholder falls off. He then puts the beer back in the cupholder on the table--only now it's just a hole, not a cupholder. *PLINK*

Yes, I watched it all unfold, and yes, I knew what was about to happen, and yes, I stayed silent and let it happen. I'm not sure how evil that makes me, but I just couldn't help myself. I had to see it.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0780595/synopsis Redline 3.7 out of 10 stars. That's about as bad as it gets. Plan 9 From Outer Space gets 3.8.

I used to have a home in Upland... and spent a lot of time in glendora and angeles crest riding motorcycles. I know ^this place very well.

There is now a gun range on the strip... there was a news story this morning it opened. it's either IN the stratosphere or directly adjacent to, they weren't really clear on that.

Like, I actually believe 2-5 is fairly profitable playing ABC poker too.

Let's put it this say, in my experience, 1/2 and 2/5 poker.... it's like losing weight... everyone knows what needs to be done...but just don't have the discipline to do it.

Cheers,

haha, that was meant to be for TMack's thread... some dude was just like... play ABC @ 1-2 = $$$$

and I am like.... ugh.... I dunno... 2-5 is pretty ABC too..... or i dunno, maybe my definition of ABC is a little different. Like the guys I see do well at 2-5 aren't doing anything crazy either....however, they usually have the discipline to do the right thing?
