I’m leaving tomorrow morning on a flight to Las Vegas on a work-related trip. It’s the National Association of Broadcasters annual convention I’ll be attending on behalf of the television station I work for.
It’s two good full days of work on the convention floor, meeting with vendors, learning all I can about new television products & technologies, and establishing/reinforcing relationships with representatives from companies I deal with in the course of my work.
But in the evenings, I’ll still be in Las Vegas, after all.
I’ve been invited to take part in the second annual Texas Hold’em tournament held by one of our vendors, DecisionMark. It’s a 100-player tournament, and all 100 seats are pre-paid ($100) by the host of the tournament. So the players really have nothing to lose.
I played in the tournament last year and finished 13th overall (the top 10 were paid out), and I’m looking forward to getting a second shot at it this year. I’ve got another year’s play & experience under my belt, have fine-tuned my play quite a bit, and am cautiously optimistic about my chances to make it to the final table this year.
The game is this coming Tuesday, April 25th at 8:30pm, so I’ll be sure to post the results after the last hand is played.
