Bruce Buffer Poker Room Opening - Coming up Loco, in spades

IMG_1901 I almost named this blog, "I get my kick on Route 66", but that wouldn't make any sense. Other than the fact that I'm doing a very sweet karate kick in mid air.

Its been quite a while since I've done a blog post and I want to keep my ravenous 40 visitors per day in the loop. And to you, I vow a posting at LEAST once per week. I owe it to you. Hell, I owe it to myself.

Let's get in gear.

Location: Las Vegas.

Duration: Seven days.

While in Las Vegas for UFC 116 with the Heavy.com crew, we had a break in the action to attend the Bruce Buffer Poker room opening at the MGM. The folks at MGM put together an amazing room for the well known UFC announcer, Bruce Buffer. What he is also known for is being a winning poker player, so much so that he has been invited to various high level poker tournaments and done quite well. Poker News arranged our media coverage and our day began.

A fair warning: I've never played a single hand of Poker, and I was knocked out quickly - I didn't find that to be a big surprise, but what I did find to be amusing (much later) was that I took it very personally when I was bluffed and raised by some other player, only to find out that his cards were worse than mine.Upon the turning of the cards, I actually learned something - NEVER act like you don't know what you're doing. Sure, you have to stay humble, but by all means, don't "show your cards" before their turned over.

So as I got knocked out, Ryan Loco advanced... all the way to the final table. And knocked out Bruce Buffer himself.... and then went on to beat a semi professional poker player for the victory, or what ever its called when one wins a poker tournament.

I want to post all my UFC and Strikeforce pics from the last 3 weeks, but I need to clear it first.

Until then... It's good to be back in the saddle.
