WIPHOF and stuff
I haven't blog much lately; I’ve been spending the end of the summer taking a lot of time off. My daughter was visiting for a few weeks and I didn't play while she was here. I just enjoyed the time I had with her. She went back to Canada last week where she is studying. I am very proud of her.
I went to the Women in Poker Hall of Fame dinner and induction ceremony last Friday. This year's inductee's were Jennifer Harman, Kathy Leibert, and Billie Brown. The ceremony had a great set up at the Golden Nugget and was hosted by 2009 Women in Poker Hall of Fame inductee Jan Fisher who did an amazing job. That woman could definitely be a stand-up comedian! They had a silent auction benefiting Poker Gives and a great dinner followed by music and dancing. Ex-commissioner of the World Series of Poker Jeffrey Pollack was the guest speaker. He’s speech was great on women in poker and his thoughts on men crashing the ladies event, which obviously he did not agree with!
I have mainly been focusing on live cash games this week. I have been hopping around to pretty much every casino in town doing what I do best: playing cash games! I have had a VERY lucrative week! My win rate in cash games is extremely high; I sometimes wonder why I even bother playing tournament. Oh wait, I know why, prestige and big prize pools! At the end of the day, cash games are my money maker and I am definitely gonna be putting more focus on them in the months to come. I am not saying that I won't play any tournaments; I just won't play as many.
WCOOP is also going, I cashed in one event but nothing crazy. I will be playing more this week and keep you posted on how it goes. I am also planning on playing the charity event for Poker Give on the 17th at 1pm at Aria. It's a great charity and they have tournaments all month long across the U.S. You can look up the schedule on this link: http://www.pokergives.org/nationalpokermonth.shtml.
