Less than 48 Hours to Go

For all intents and purposes, I need to be ready to leave before I hit the sack Thursday night. My 8:30am flight means I need to be at the airport at 6:30am. This means I should leave my place by 5:45am, which means I need to be up no later than 5am. Assuming I want to be at least functional enough to drive and board an international flight, I'll need 4 hours of sleep at minimum, but more is always better. So 1:00am Friday is when I need to be ready to go.

So between now and then - haircut, laundry for work and trip, making sure I have the necessities for 48hrs in Vegas, take out more US cash, pack, gather necessary information, tidy up the place (because who wants to come home to a mess?),make sure my buddy is still available to feed the cats and then show him where everything is, and toss in a few responsibilites for a couple friends who are out of town. I'll probably start all this about 8pm Thursday.

Now where'd I put my Venetian card? And my MGM/Mirage card? and my Boyd card? Okay, I don't give a shit about the Boyd card.

Plans are simple enough - get in, get car, drop shit off, hit strip. My timing sucks for the Venetian deepstack, as I'm not about to drop $2,500 for Friday's game or sit through HORSE on Saturday. Any OTHER weekend and the buy-ins and games are more my level. Cash games it is! Unless there are some other decent NLHE tourneys going on this weekend. *EDIT: Looks the like Caesar's Megastack $300 + $30 + $10 for 12,500 chips is the place to be on Saturday! If it goes 2 days and I'm still miraculously alive, I'll just have to move my flight home to the redeye on Sunday.

Rumours of brunch on Saturday sound good. And I'm hoping I can roll some dice with Bayne before he departs. Although I'm sure all the time in between will be filled with laughs, the odd drink (rental car = no drunkeness), and good times all around... perhaps even a swim. I expect to have no more than 6 hours of sleep during my brief time there.. with 3 being a more likely number.

Viva Las Vegas!

Dude, you should seriously consider the Caesar's Palace Mega Stack series. Every bit as much play as the Venetian series, and last weekend, the Sat tourney was something like $540, not $2500.
