Redraw to Las Vegas
In a few hours I'll be headed to the airport where I'll fly back to Las Vegas for 5 days and 5 nights of fun. I thought at first that flying back only a few weeks after I was just there was excessive, but I'm burning up my vacation days and I thought: Where would I rather be during my vacation? The answer of course is Las Vegas.
This time around, there will be a bit of a business side to it all. I have to meet an editor there to see if my redraw to perhaps living and working there will turn out. This after I found out today that my main draw- the chance to take an editing position here in Atlanta, likely will not pan out, as they have a "more experienced" person from outside in mind. Oh well. No bitterness, just waiting for the next hand to unfold.
I feel like more of a regular part of the new Emory Game. I haven't been so cold-decked in my life but it's been fun supporting a regular game. My bankroll has been on a 10-day slide, although I won some money finally online after I went to yesterday's new Emory game. I tell myself I just have to keep my head and play. I feel like I really don't care if I lose money. To be successful at poker, you have to learn how to lose well.
So that's that. I have to just pick up my head and trot down the court. Soon I'll be playing all the games that I want, for much lower rake than here in Atlanta ($6 for a NL $2/3 game is ridiculous).
