"If a man has done his best, what else is there?"
August 22, 2021

While it's nice to be back in Vegas from Montana, I'll barely get unpacked before it's time for Todd and I to go to Macau for 9 or 10 days. We are going to play in the APT and look things over. I've heard a lot about China but have never been. We'll be taking a helicopter tour of Hong Kong before we settle in Macau. It's a long flight to China but worth it since it might be a while before we can go back. My pal Jack Binion is going with us and he knows his way around because he worked there with Steve Wynn for 6 months.

My toy poodle, Casper, injured himself in Montana. He was chasing the golf cart I was driving and ran into a hidden hole, dislocating his left shoulder. We have to do our best to keep him inactive, but it is impossible. When he gets excited, he is as quick as that Jamaican runner, "Lightning" Bolt. I hope he doesn't hurt himself again. He did add two more victims to his "bite list" while we were in Montana.

The Olympics have really slowed down the poker games, both live and on the internet. Everyone watches NBC every night instead of playing poker. I don't blame them because I get goosebumps watching the great athletes compete. I even found myself cheering for Misty May and her partner in the beach volleyball finals. That was the first time I had ever seen that sport and it was cool. I can't wait until the distance races start but I'm afraid I'll miss them on this trip to China.

I hate to miss the Bike tournament because that is where I won my only WPT event. I've always been partial to the Bicycle Club from the old days when George Hardy ran it. I won lots of money there so that probably makes me fonder of it.

I heard Daniel N. got all the money in his golf matches. I don't know how, because his caddy talked to me and said Daniel asked him if he could get to the green with a 5-iron. His caddy told him "Eventually".
