I have been in L.A. for a few days now after catching a direct flight out of Melbourne. The flight only took 13 hours and I’m staying at the Beverly Hills Hotel – it is very nice.
Somehow, I managed to catch a cold but I can’t remember looking for it to begin with – or it caught me. I’m a bit under the weather due to circumstances beyond my control. Jogging and exercise are out of the question right now, I’m just taking it easy for the time being, acclimating myself to the climate and area after being in Melbourne for the Aussie Millions.
I’m going to spend the next few days seeing myself take the title of the Party Poker Premier League this year. It’s a very tough line-up Luke Schwartz, Daniel Negreanu, Vanessa Rousso, David Benyamine, Phil Hellmuth, JC Tran – last year’s champion, Yevgeniy Timoshenko, Roland de Wolfe, and Doyle Brunson is in it also. It’s going to be tough, and sick competition, and fun. I can’t wait! I love that event!
Staying with the positive thought that I will win the Premier League event, after I take it down I will be playing a PokerStars special invitation event that has a 25K buy-in and only 36 players in a shoot out. That is the 23rd at the Venetian, after the NAPT I believe. To warm up for that event, I will also be seeing myself winning it, devoting my energy to a lot of positive thought, and by the time I leave L.A. I should be finished with the cold that caught me and I will be ready to go skiing (I’m definitely considering skiing) as I head to Las Vegas and the PokerStars event.
As I end this post, one word of advice, never go looking for a cold, it’s sure to find you if you do. Do look for your bike when you are at the table with me; it definitely beats walking and may prevent a cold from catching you.
