    Hello everyone.

    Just got home today. Feel absolutely wrecked now!
    I'd like to thank you all for your support, and I'd also like to thank my pair of pocket 9's for doubling me up just before the bubble :D

    I went here by the way, thanks for the suggestion. Also went to the valley of fire and the hoover dam. Other than that all I seen was casinos!

    We went down to fremont street on Saturday and went into a smoky old casino down there - it was like being in the movies! Old lady playing the piano, burlesque dancer on the table etc.

    Bit shit to be back here to be honest!

    There's a guy on the telly the now who was at my table on day 3(full tilt poker championship on challenge) - Toto Leonidas. I remember early on in the day it got folded to me in small blind (he was in big blind) and I had QQ. I raised and he obviously thought I had nothing. Anyway we built quite a big pot and he looked gutted when I turned over two queens at the end. How I chuckled :)

    My aunt was working at this, she mentioned some supposedly bigshot poker player who goes by the name of Blowfish or something like that?

    Aha, that sounds right. Never heard of him myself, but she said he fancied himself as a bit of a big time Charlie and was quite demanding (she works in the hospitality business). So she amused herself by politely calling him Mr Fish every time he had a moan about something.

    That wiki was clearly written by someone with an American's understanding of geography:

    "In the United States, he is described by some as "... like the Ernie Els of the PGA Tour... deservedly the most-well respected player from Europe in America"

    Ernie Els is South African... :D
