I Am Home from Vegas Now

I have spent about four months working in Las Vegas. Of course I normally would not have been that interested, but I was really short of work and I did not have a girlfriend. Of course I have been playing poker on betting web sites for some time, so I was curious as to whether or not I would be any good at casino poker. It turns out that this depends a great deal upon who is on the opposite side of the table. Beer league softball players might be really good against other guys in the beer league, but you put them up against semi pro players or the ones who play on ESPN and there is a different comparison. At any rate I am really good so long as I am not up against the guys who make good money doing this stuff. The trouble is that you can not always figure out who is who.

At any rate I kept a record of how well I did. I started out with five hundred dollars that I figured I could win or lose without being too upset about it. At any rate once I was down to just over two hundred dollars and at another point I was up to around 1300 dollars. I felt like I should have stopped there, but instead I lost about half of that and then I got back up to 850 dollars. I was dating a really good looking girl I met on the casino floor for a little while. I am pretty sure that she was a professional gambler or some sort of hustler herself. At any rate I never trusted her at all and this probably was a smart thing. After about three weeks the police came knocking on my door about her and some guy who claimed she had drugged him and stolen his watch.

We were running around looking for a good place to eat and we even found an ADT Memphis office but we did not find any place in particular to eat. I am a pretty outgoing person so I thought that I would ask a local for a good place to eat and my friend said that he thought it was going to be risky but I thought it was going to be okay.
