Vegas Grinders: Cupcake Remission Stakes

by , Mar 14, 2013 | 4:12 pm

All I want is for you to love me like a Facebook friend.

We’re not just a 1-2 or 1-3-trick pony at Vegas Grinders … and to prove it we invite anti-Howard Lederer petitioner and middleweight grinder thug Nick diVella to report from the 5/10 and 10/20 NL tables at Aria, Bellagio, Wynn, and (sometimes) Venetian … just as we get word that the DOJ has launched a website to facilitate the repatriation of Full Tilt bankrolls.

Also … the Caesars Megabeat Jackpot hits at Planet Hollywood for $672k, paying off not just quad Queens < Queen-high straight flush, but also spreading a cool $2k around to 219 players in eight different poker rooms across Nevada. (Woot! It’s a casino party!) … But (sigh) what’s the point, really, when even Jerry Yang’s WSOP bracelet can end up on the auction block in an effort to pay off the IRS? With Dave boldly (and wrongly) folding pocket kings, good thing at least one of us finally took down a tournament FTW. Sure, it was just a little $45 tourney at the Stratosphere, but hey, don’t tell that to the 50 semi-grizzled players I bettered!

    Love the hand history conversations. I know you, you don’t know me. Was that Neeme in the Vene on Wed 13. Nascar crowd is hard to get money from. Never see them at big strip poker rooms. I had 1 of 50 wristbands to get a pro photo between Tony Stewart and Danica Patrick saturday 7pm MGM lobby. Could not sell that band, peeps wanted it but treated me like scamming satan. They were wearing $200 jackets advertising every sponsor but couldn’t find $50 for a once in a lifetime opportunity. Will sell autographed coke bottles on ebay. And the pic sucks.

    I was hoping the first tourney win would come from the Poker Palace way out on LV Blvd.
    Non grinder look, shirt and tie, old ed hardy shirt with skulls and LA douchebag attitude.
