Layla Kayleigh in the news.

Friday, July 31st, 2009

Sometimes when I look at Layla Kayleigh, Liv Boeree and Kara Scott I wonder why I ever left the “Green and pleasant land”. Of course they are the cream on top of a huge urn of milk. Anyway, us Brits love animals so it is no surprise to see Layla Kayleigh featuring in a PETA […]

Joan Jett and Bobby Charlton hairstyles alive at Bike

Friday, July 31st, 2009

This Vietnamese dealer really stands out with her retro Joan Jett hairstyle or is it a mullet? Then we had a balding player yesterday sporting what is known as a Bobby Charlton in England where he grows his side hair so long that he tries to cover the top of his hairless head. I hope […]

B list Celebs pretty scarce but Bike receives an A.

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Today was the grand opening of the Events Center at the Bike. This is my first Legends so I never visited the old room . This room is well lit plus has a “patio” window so has natural lighting. Today was also the unveiling of the Legends TD Jay Siegal who some of you will […]

Legends set to begin with a party

Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Usually the seemingly never ending series of tournaments at the Bike begin pretty quietly with a $50- $100 buy in perhaps with a guarantee added. Not so the Legends which has a casino employees event tomorrow quickly followed by a Celebrity crapshoot (?) followed one hour later (hence the crapshoot reference) by a Cocktail party. […]

What to do: LV or LA

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

If you are in Vegas this weekend you might want to stay indoors due to “extreme heat”. Today would be a great day to watch the WPT Bellagio Cup in the Fontana lounge. With only four tables in play there will be lots of room for railbirds. You may even sip a cocktail while you […]

Horse racing + poker in Galway ; good times

Friday, July 17th, 2009

I met Finton when he finished second in one of the Bellagio Cup tournies. Very sociable like the majority of the Irish. The Eglinton club that he is involved with are having a summer poker tournament that coincides with the Galway Festival, a legendary event with horse racing, music and funfairs. I am sure it […]

Congrats to James Akenhead

Thursday, July 16th, 2009

With a name like Akenhead he must be from a family of alcoholics back in the day. These days James likes to bet 5 at roulette, a game the Euros play almost exclusively in Vegas, as the Americans pretend craps is complicated. The Brits never did claim Peter Eastgate, Peter claimed Britain. Eastgate has the […]

November zero: Bellagio goes over…

Wednesday, July 15th, 2009

With the elimination of Blair Rodman my November nine picks are all eliminated. Originally, I picked Laughlin rounder Tommy Vedes but an email from Craig Crivellos wife prompted me to drop him for Craig. i am now only interested in James Akenhead but my interest is minimal. Over to the Bellagio, I predicted under 225 […]

WPT sinks in Lake Bellagio

Tuesday, July 14th, 2009

It wasn’t an iceberg that sunk the WPT not in this heat. However only 79 players showed up for Day 1a of the Bellagio Cup. Maybe some would play Day1 of the Venetian $5k and then move on to the Bellagio tomorrow. If so, where do these donks get their money? I would like to […]
