Usual Madness, Life is Grand; Las Vegas, NV
October 8, 2021

Just arrived in Vegas yesterday and it’s going to be a seriously busy week or so. This is all on the tails of just leaving Florida (for an incredible charity event with Vinny Lecavalier of the Tampa Bay Lightning) and also heading down to the UB offices in Costa Rica to get working on some interesting marketing possibilities. I think it’s going to be a fun year…

Let me talk about the NOW though. It all kicks off tomorrow when I will be teaching a morning (class? lecture? discussion?) talk for the WPT Boot Camps over at the Golden Nugget. I consider myself to be much more of a facilitator rather than a teacher, so I think it’s going to be a lot of hands-on discussions more than anything else. Going to be talking about being a pro poker player, what it’s all about, and considerations thereof. I’m not going to lie, I’m a little nervous. I don’t lecture so it’s out of my comfort zone a bit. My guess is that I’ll just try and make everyone laugh…like I always do.

As soon as that is finished up though, I need to head on over to the Rio for a truly incredible event. I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in the Special Olympics event, “Over The Edge”. Basically we raise money for Special Olympics, obviously try and get more of the word out, and contribute as much as we can. The kicker is this though; we are also rappelling down the face of the Rio to support. That’s right, attached to a rope and climbing down the damn building. Once again, I am more than a little nervous, but what am I going to do? Say no? Come on. Not my style. I’m pumped for it and I think it’s going to be an amazing experience.

All of this fun tomorrow, not to even mention the fact that next week we are finally going to be jumping out of an airplane for the “Skydive With Sebok” tournament that was won so long ago. As it turned out the winner of that tourney was a Russian chap who wasn’t able to get his visa sorted out to come to Las Vegas. We made sure we kicked him a little something though and my boy, Jared Weston, who finished in second place, is going to be jumping with his guest, his dad. I think him bringing his pops is incredible and I can’t wait for that day. I think it’s going to be absolutely killer. Love jumping out of planes!

All that AND the WPT Bellagio beginning next week?! I can barely catch my breath, and I love it like that. Nothing more fun that doing good things with good people and having a ton of fun along the way. Well, that and maybe winning about a million at Bellagio would be nice. Haha…

In closing, just wanted to throw a little love out to the toughest girl in poker, Thuy Doan. She is struggling with her cancer again and while everyone is talking about how unfair it is and what bullshit it is, Thuy is going about her business fighting her ass off, smiling, and not complaining for a second. We can all learn an amazing lesson from her. She’s in my thoughts, and I dearly hope that she will be in all of yours.

Hope all are doing ok out there…
