A quickie from the floor
You know how you know there's a break at the Poker Warehouse? The non-smoking room smells like an ashtray. When hundreds of people smoke in the hallway, a light air conditioned breeze can blow in the smoke like a gale force wind over a forest fire.
I hid in the poker area until the break was over and then headed out for the floor. I happened upon Chris Moneymaker. T.J. Cloutier stood over the champion and asked how he always ended up with the chips.
Moneymaker looked up from the felt and said, "This time I hit a set against a straight flush draw."
Simple as that, apparently.
I'm going to take a quick look at some pictures I took, then prepare them for an upcoming post. In the meantime, check out these links:
