Just hung out in the room last night watching Avs, then walked the Strip, popping into a store to grab a beer as needed.
While out, happened upon a guy who was two to my left late day 1. Turns out, he just gotten knocked out for $2600. Nice guy, glad he cashed.
The player between us was someone from Leeds whose name I didn't catch. Also nice guy, quite a good player, hope he did well. Got quite a few chips off me.
Went east on Flamingo looking for a little breakfast this AM. Went a little past Koval, didn't see anything, so Ellis Island it was. The usual decent cafe food.
I was over Vegas by then, so got in the cab line. Guy asked if I wanted to share, I asked what airline he was on. He didn't realize there are multiple terminals. Sure, let's go, we'll figure it out.
He also played the Seniors, so we talked about our experience on the way over. When we pulled up at T1, he put his card in the machine. I offered him $20 to split, but waived it off. That was a nice surprise.
Was a small charge to get me to T3, but still a $15 savings.
Overall, I'm pretty happy with my play (with the exception of final hand @RW yesterday). In both tournaments, I was able to run up a good sized stack.
I feel like I'm at the point of being competitive against *most* of the field, but not at the "good player" level. Decent ish rec I guess.
Not in cash games, ofc. I'm generally pretty bad there.
Enjoyed the trip. Sad and concerned the Avs didn't take the Cup last night. Tampa's tough at home. If it gets to game seven with these two, it's a flip.
