Going Pro - Sort of

Monday, January 14, 2008

The holidays have passed which means I'm free to roam again for a bit. As alluded to previously, the next destination on the world tour will be to spend a couple months in Las Vegas. While there, I will pretend to live out the fantasy of recreational poker players everywhere and assume the role of 'Professional Poker Player.'

First things first - allow me to alleviate any fears that you (my friends and family) may have regarding this little adventure. For starters, I will be limiting myself to a set amount of money; if/when that's gone, I throw in the towel. Period. Secondly, I have no illusions of doing this for the rest of my life or making a boatload of money. Rather, it's simply something that I want to say I did - living out a dream (at least for 1-2 months).

Finally, if you are interested in reading about my poker adventures, they can be found here: That blog will cover only stories from the tables and probably won't be too interesting to those of you who don't play. Fear not, all the remaining adventures will continue to be posted here.
