Missing Vegas Already, in Photos July 17, 2013

Posted by Administrator in : art,poker,travel,Uncategorized , trackback

I fell in love with Vegas harder this year and felt emotional leaving after weeks in town, when I was supposed to be tired of it. I’ll miss the soft desert light and the random conversations with brilliant strangers and friends. My first piece on the WSOP, about Open Face action & strategy is up on the PokerStars blog. And now for some visuals:




I was flattered by how well-prepared the gorgeous Sarah Grant was for this PokerNews interview with me.



The no-frills Riviera Hotel was the site of the 2013 National Open, where we interviewed Amanda Mateer, among others, for USChess.

Daniel and I also shot a video for Poker Fairy Tale featuring Katie Stone, founder of the Grindettes and highstakes mixed game pro Melissa Burr. Some stills from the day:





















Melissa inspired me to become more serious about Open Face Poker, so it was a trip highlight to leave the Aria Open Face tournament with her triumphantly. We chopped the marathon overnight affair along with a few others.


Unfortunately, the WSOP Open Face tournament did not go as well.


As for the big one…




A few more happy photos from Vegas:
