Vegas Trip (by the numbers)


I know I’ve been slacking on blogs this week, but I have been putting my writing time to use working on a novel. Two novels actually. When I get tired of looking at one of them I switch it up and work on the other one for awhile. It’s possible that one of them will make me money some day, which is something I probably can’t say about this blog, so the novels take precedence sometimes. I’m headed back to Minnesota late tomorrow night, and while I may spend the evening tonight grinding cash games, my Vegas summer schedule is basically over and it’s time for a wrap up.

    How do you confirm the ‘Ho or No’ challenge? 🙂 Congrats on a great trip. Gotta share some of that action next time!

      It’s easy to confirm by talking to them. A hooker will want to talk to a guy and will hit him up pretty quick. Action will be spread out a little more next time for sure, lots of people were annoyed that they didn’t get a shot.
