[Advice Wanted] Vegas Trip
  Aphelion, May 03 2009

So, its been a year since graduation and some of my college friends and I are thinking of making a trip to Vegas for reunion. There's around 7 of us and we're wondering how to best make use of the 4 days we will be there for. None of us are "high rollers" by any stretch of the imagination, so we're looking for how to get the most Vegas experience for our money - which hotels to stay, where to go, etc.

I know some of you guys practically live in Vegas, so any advice would be great!

Complete and utter luck =p.

I entered the tourny thinking, hey why not, just chat it up w/ some LP people. Stole the first pot, then proceeded to be utterly valuetowned by TAG player and TwistedEcho cuz I'm a calling station who calls down w/ A high. Basically I had no chance postflop against anyone of these guys, and the only way I won was through 3 coinflips w/ 88 and 77 vs high cards.

Got on to the final table, still uneventful, but stole a couple more pots through squeeze plays / flop cbets. Hit some cards and won more coinflips vs shortstacked all ins, and suddenly I was the chip leader. Things got three handed w/ me having around 65% of chips and Ket and AAAARRRRGH splitting the rest. I decided to be very aggressive, raising about just every button and small blind because

1. I can't play postflop
2. I can't play postflop
3. Playing postflop vs Ket scares me.
4. I can't play postflop.
3. Being aggressive is cool omgz.

I hit more cards, took Ket out KJ vs KT, and entered HU w/ a 10:1 chiplead. Things were a wash mostly, with me stealing most of the initial blinds but then being checked shoved w/ me having 9 high and having to fold. Things were stagnant for a while w/ us exchanging blinds, but then I picked up AA, he shoved, and I held to win!!!

And thats how the worst player won.
