We're all back from Vegas, it was a crazy time with everyone. As most of you know the majority of the support guys/gals are based all across the globe so it was truly an international event.
Team Holdem Manager International Poker Tournament Results:
Results were rather fitting I thought. We started 9-10 handed and I was praying for a shove fest because I didn't want to sit around for 3 hours playing a $20 home game tournament. Blinds started tiny, but they did go up fast. First place got $120 and second $60. After about an hour it was Heads Up with myself and Mr SitNGo Wizard himself. Final hand we were all-in preflop. The Wizard held K7 and myself A6, 7 hits the flop and my A6 never improved. Sucks to lose like that but I sucked out to get to HU so I can't complain.
1st – Dennis (AKA SitNGo Wizard)
2nd – Brent (AKA B-Money)
In my pre Vegas blog post I mentioned one of the Vegas virgins would gamble into the night getting completely wasted. Sadly, I was the one who ended up gambling all night getting wasted. Played at Bellagio till 10am and had a company meeting at 11am. Dumb, dumb, dumb. One thing that happened at Bellagio was absolutely hilarious though. Mike, who I shared a room with back at the house, got beat boat over boat. He comes over to my table with a thick drunk English accent. "Brent, Brent, Brent, you won't believe it. Boat over Boat, I got beat boat over boat. Brent, Boat over Boat." I was like…. Mike, "STFU, the whole poker room can hear you." I think this happened about 4-5am. Other than that I don't remember much. I lost about $150 the whole night. I was up $80 at MGM playing 1-2, but down about $200 at Bellagio. When I asked Mike about the boat over boat the next day he said he didn't remember it. LOL
