Advocating for Vegas

While trying to ponder the best way to write up the next installment of the WPBT II, I read Bill Rini’s post this morning and thought that I would throw my two cents in, whatever that’s worth. Ummm, that was a retarded sentence, seeing as how I definitively stated that it was worth two cents. OK, OK, I’ll get to the point.

There are obviously a ton of possibilities for the location of WPBT III. New Orleans is a great town, lots of fun to party in, but the Harrah’s casino is so-so as far as the poker goes, IMO. I’d love to visit Tunica and see what that’s about, but it doesn’t seem like a place to bring people from all over the country. Having never been, though, I could be absolutely wrong.

I’m officially advocating Las Vegas, again. Why? Las Vegas has something for absolutely everyone. Players at all levels of their game have a cornucopia of choices when it comes to where they can play, from the lowest to the highest. Not so much of a gambler? There are plenty of shopping opportunities and shows to enjoy. Wanna play some low-limit –EV games? There are plenty in Vegas and that’s something you won’t find at the Harrah’s in New Orleans unless it’s 9 AM, and even then you’ll be lucky to find a $5 table. In short, it’s really hard not to have a great time in Vegas, no matter who you are. Like pizza and sex, even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good.

Last, but certainly not least, fall or winter in the desert is wonderful. It will be interesting to see what the consensus ends up being, and I’m more than sure it will be a great time regardless of the location. Even if everyone decided to get together at the Greyhound station, I imagine I’d still show up.

With so many great people in one place , how could I not?.
