Stories and Adventures of an Implied Millionaire
What do people do while 2+2 is down? Browse Leggo, I hope, but maybe notó2+2 is a fix unlike any other. I donít even think there is any strategy on 2+2 anymore, but you can sure get your fix for anything else. Everything from talking about how good people are at poker to sports to news, views, and gossip (speaking of which, where are people talking about how 2+2 is down now that 2+2 is down? Seems like a paradox or something ).
It came at a good time for me, as my internet time has been pretty limited the last two weeks. I went to Miami for a WPT last week, where I just barely faded the mincash and got 9th in a ~100 person 2k where first was like 70k. Losing flips in situations like that are annoying, but itís encouraging that Iím multi-daying nearly every tournament I play these days, I feel almost as optimistic as when Chewy just thinks heís going to win everything. Almost.
I then bagged for two straight days and kinda almost but not really bubbled the Main after playing pretty good poker and just having everything go wrong on Day 3. Day 3 is a bad day to have everything go wrong, but I guess Day 4 is a pretty bad day to have everything go wrong too. And I can say from experience that Day 6 is a bad day to have things go wrong as well, and itís hard to say that youíd rather Day 3, 4, or 6 go well than Day 1, because the formers cannot be had without latter. But I digress .
From Miami I walked to Cancun , where I was standing up in a wedding. Destination weddings seem pretty hit or miss, but this one slammed it out of the park. My friend is somewhat connected to the poker community and used to play professionally, so there were some familiar Leggoites in attendance. Combined with our mutual friends from home, it was an elite crew of shenanigans at a resort where everything was free . As I get older I think I write quite a bit less about my personal life in my blog, but I felt like this was a trip that had to be at least cliffnoted. The resort was a 5 star  couples resort  that was all-inclusive. The staff was insanely helpful at all times, and they were not shy about providing sufficient 24 hour room service complete with chicken nuggets and champagne . I cannot stress enough how good the staff was. I anticipated some laziness or aloofness since everything was ďincluded,Ē but everyone was personalóone girl mustíve seen me 4 times throughout the trip, I never recognized her because she was in a million different uniforms , but she always knew who I was. The name of the place was Sun Palace. I am not a Sun Palace affiliate, but if youíre looking for a long weekend getaway with your girl, you should go here.
On the trip we did a bit of an expedition where we went on ATVs, ziplined, and jumped into caves. I jumped from 52 feet, which was the highest platform they had, and I probably would have jumped from as high as they told me it was okay to jump from, because thatís my style. Most of the group jumped from 37 foot platform, but Iím a showoff and I like heights , so I couldnít resist. The ziplining was pretty tame, but certainly cool enough, and the ATVs were fast. Most people told me not to leave the resort in Mexico because Iíll get abducted, but I faded that, so Iíve got that goiní for me, which is nice.
Iím also excited to start playing online poker again. I keep saying that I just want to start playing 5-10+ again, but it always takes a few weeks for me to really get back in the swing of things, and by that time Iím going back to the States for whatever reason. Iím pretty set on going abroad next year and staying there for a good period of time (maybe 3 months) so I can just put in 100-200k hands on Stars and have that be that bulk of my online poker playing for the next calendar year. As always, I try not to plan too far in advance.
I am a little out of the loop I suppose, but last week was Mojito Tuesday, the day the we found out Stars is (probably? maybe?) buying Full Tilt, and in some way, shape, or form, weíre getting some of our pesos  back. Even if that solution does not turn out to be perfect, having Stars lined up to do something is better than having a French gangster lined up to do something, imo. Cheers to April 24th, forever known as Mojito Tuesday (assuming we get our pesos backóactually, even if we donít, Mojito Tuesday will just take on an entirely different connotation, and weíll drink until we canít feel feelings anymore).
 The author is aware this is a bad example of a paradox, but it does seem a little paradoxical, or something.
 I hate when people say ďBut I digress.Ē
 I did not walk to Cancun from Miami. I actually flew (in a plane).
 Everything was actually $400 per night.
 I donít actually know if this was true or not, but GirlChewy mentioned that it was, and although women are almost exclusively the devil, she seems to be on the straight and narrow.
 I went stag and chopped a room with a friend; a few bridesmaids went stag. It all worked out A-OK.
 At least a dozen bottles of champagne were ordered during and half-drank or not drank at all. At one point we ordered two to the room complete with 8 glasses for pre-gaming and we completely forgot about it.
 Or maybe Iím racist and all Mexican women look alike. But seriously, she hosted karaoke, put on a fire show, and dealt blackjack. Everytime she said my name I was taken aback and tried to figure how who she was and why she remembered my name from a 37 second conversation on the first night of my stay.
 Relative to the rest of the population. No one likes heights, but I donít necessarily dislike them, and I like things that get me out of my comfort zone, that is why I bluff a lot (and in bad spots).
 Iím still in Mexico.
