Still waiting on the doctor types to get back to me about the recommended course of action. In the mean time, I sit here and pile through things that might be good to do while sitting in recovery.
Thats when I remembered the Borgata has their annual Winter Open. This has usually been a WPffffftT event, but the Borgata has shed themselves of that weight this time around and are doing something very cool.
The 17 day event will start on January 13th and will culminate with the Championship event. This $3,000 dollar event will start on the 25th, and end on the 29th. a $3,000 event as a championship event you ask? Well, yes. Actually it makes great sense. Especially when you consider the fact that it's a $2 million guarantee.
The events included in the open are very cool. There is a $350 PLO event on January 17th. Thats a day before my 40th B-day. I wonder if it would be ok to celebrate by getting my wrap to the nut flush, straight, and straight flush ran down by 2 5 T J, 4 suited. I think it would sort me out just fine.
I know the Borgata is also entertaining a "media" day tournament, so if any of you out there are interested in coming down (or up) and want to play in it, drop me a line and I'll see if I can utilize my intimidation to get you a seat. Because as, you know, as a blogger, you are kinda media.
You can view the whole schedule of events here.
Vegas is looking shaky right now but I haven't totally given up on the idea. If Fuel was going I'd have to go even if a kidney was hanging out just so I could get a free meal out him. I'll keep you updated.
