Maybe not the best time on the brink of LAPC
So I am sure people are expecting an update on how I did in the game that day I was hit by my own personal mack truck of motivation and I would love to tell you, except for one little minor, teensy, tiny, practically insignificant detail- I didn't end up going. Yes, yes after all that blogging, and thinking out loud, even after church, the gym, and that nice, long, hot shower I didn't end up going to Commerce. What am I doing??? I need to be out there, in the field, at the frontlines of the action, kindly taking the money off these people's hands. Seriously, I know of a place where people are actually giving away money, and I don't have the time to go? What kind of nonsensical thing is that??? No more excuses, or putting it off, I am as good as there....tommorow.
So what have I been occupying myself with, if not in pursuit of check raises and value bets you ask? Let's see, partying, sleeping, partying, and oh yeah partying (heavy alcohol included). Really, who knew that Monday nights were absolutely freakin perfect for taking so many shots of Patron Silver and Grey Goose that you lose count? And who knew that Tuesdays were even more perfect for nursing a hangover and sleeping yourself to the point where you lose track of when day becomes night? That leaves me here, on Wednesday night, by my computer, writing this blog and still no trip to Commerce.
The kick in the ass that I so desperately needed however, is the onslaught of tournaments that will be going on right in my own backyard. Homecourt advantage, L.A. style. Everyone who plays the tourney circuit have their own favorite spot, or favorite tournament series, maybe beacuse its where they took down a big one, or maybe its because their favorite strip club is right around the corner from that casino , but one tournament stands apart from the rest, at least according to the players I have spoken to, and that is the Los Angeles Poker Classic at the Commerce Casino in California. I, had just turned 22 last year when the LAPC came around and I played in a tourney here and there, but I remember not playing much of the side games, which I hear is one of the reasons the LAPC is the best. And I would most definetly expect nothing less from the biggest brick and mortar card room in the world. Can you imagine putting all those people, from the best and the greatest right down to the drawing dead worst of the bunch all packed in a place where they have nothing else to do but play poker? Talk about action, game selection and variety, a girl can surely get used to this!
Seeing as how I will be in and out of town throughout the month, I will be trying to make it to as many tournaments as my other commitments will allow, not to mention playing some extremely long sessions as often as humanly possible to try to capitalize on this busy time. Of course, I will keep y'all updated, and good luck in your own poker adventures until then.
