Hey Dale at least you still came out ahead. Last time I was in Vegas I came home with exactly 10 bucks more than I took and I was thrilled about it. I'm sure you had a good time playing;)

Fishmason, I took some of that tuition money when i was in college. Used to play 2 or 3 times a week, and for some pretty big money. I just play a few times a year now for small money. Played in Vegas last year and that was a lot of fun. I stayed at Binions, where the WSOP is played, but was too nervous to play there so I had to go some place else.

Played in a tourney down at Springfield Catholic Sunday. My first heat was the Sunday before; top 30 of each of the 300+ in each of 10 heats went to the finals. Made it to the finals, believe I was around 120 when I went out. $50buy in, Top prize was an entry to WSOP + Airfare and hotel or $20,000+ cash. The great part was the school cleared over $100,000 :eek:

Great job making it to the finals, that must have been awsome. I heard about that and wanted to play but already had plans for that weekend. How many people was in the tourny total? Did the winner take the cash or is he in Vegas right now playing? There is a place in Lancaster that is having one next weekend to raise money. Seems like poker is taking the place of raffles and things as a fund raiser.

Yeah they can make alot of money doing tourneys like that(springfield Catholic). I heard that its not against the law to have big tourneys like that if you give like 2% to a non profit organization. So im gonna hold some monster ones next year at OSU.

Hey bigjohn, thats pretty cool about your bro. Do you ever go or play in any of the tounements with him? Are there any in Ohio or does he go to Vegas, Tunica, or Atlantic City? I've heard Biloxi is pretty good for poker also.

Is on-line poker really that fun? Just seems to me like it would be kinda boring. I like being able to look at the people I'm playing against and trying to figure them out. Seems to me it would be like playing solitare on the computer.
