Over the past few weeks I’ve tried to concentrate on building a bankroll to take to Vegas. My goal is to avoid having to withdraw any money while I’m there, making the entire weekend a “freeroll”. So far I’ve been extremely successful:
I’ve played poker 3 times in the past 6 days, and won a cumulative $2,745. First, I won $1,320 last weekend at Coushatta and Harrah’s. Then on Monday night, Morris and I went to a new card room that recently opened on 59 and Sheppard. We played $1-$2 pot limit, and I won $520. Last night I won another $905 in the $1-$2 pot limit game at the Top Hat (Paradise).
I hope to have enough scratch to sit down at the $5-$10 No-Limit game at the Bellagio. That game is huge ($600 min buy-in, no max), with pots regularly at $1,500+. You can get rich quickly if you catch a few hands. I’ll wait and see how it looks, because that level is above my comfort zone, and I wouldn’t want to play scared.
So far I have $3,200 in liquid “found” money. That should be sufficient to gamble with as long as someone keeps me away from the Blackjack tables, where I’m certain to piss it all away…
