"The future that we expect and plan for, begins today."
June 3, 2022

I tried one more tournament today. The $5,000 Mixed Hold'Em seemed to be a good spot and I was well rested after my day off. It was also a 5 p.m. start, which isn't too bad, but I was knocked out the second hour. Oh well, Daniel Negreanu was at my table and he went out before I did. At least I'll get to bed early and be ready to play the next tournament I choose. Also, I got to sit next to Isabelle Mercier, which was nice. She is such a great gal. My next event will probably be Wednesday when the mixed games start at 5 p.m. This should be one of my strongest tournaments, so I'm going to rest up for it.

I had a lengthy interview with ESPN before I started today. It was a little different than most interviews because they asked unusual questions. They asked me if I could be any poker player for a day, who would I be and why. I answered Patrik Antonius because, if I looked like him, I could get all the girls in town. Then they asked, if I could play with any three poker players, dead or fictional, who would it be. I replied, "Doc Holliday, Maverick, and my old pal Chip Reese". I sure would like to see Jack Strauss and Sailor Roberts, also.

Harrah's has a VIP room that charges $2,750 for the entire tournament and $1,000 goes to charity. Quite a jump from the $1,000 they charged last year, but I think it is well worth it. There's been a lot of complaining about the food because the food was fabulous last year and only sandwiches have been put out this year. It's a great place to relax though, and they are bringing in a pool table and putting green.

Todd was the first person in Team Brunson to cash in an event. He came in the top 300 in the $1,500 NHL. There were 4,000 entries in that one, so maybe that will get us going. Shannon Elizabeth isn't back yet, but I expect her tomorrow.

I was driving my scooter back to my car when a lady came screaming up to me and literally knocked me out of the scooter onto the floor. She was from Idaho and said she watches every poker show and I was her favorite player. That's nice, but please be more gentle! - DB

@EricOosterbeek No, it's just good natured ribbing. He is a cool guy.
