Day 6 - Downtown

I woke this morning absolutely exhausted! Something has most definitely caught up with me.

I decided to venture downtown to the Binnions Horseshoe anyway as I had not yet been there in my previous visits. Temperatures are also on the increase as it is 110 degrees and although I was struggling with the heat, I overheard one conversation regarding how this was quite nice and it only gets hot at 125! Yeah, right!

I played in the $150 dollar event at the Binnions, but was struggling to focus due to how I felt. I started reasonably okay, but managed to knock myself reasonably late on in a small blind/big blind battle - A8 vs TT. I did not need to get involved, but was struggling to concentrate and there was no chance of me getting lucky.

Rachael fared a little better, but ultimately got shortstacked and pushed with A3 and lost to QJ.

I am due to play the World Series Event 49 tomorrow, but right now, it feels like a waste of money as I am so tired.
I know its one of those rare opportuinties, but it also seems foolish if I feel like this, the Binnions game was a prime example of only playing when you feel up to it.

I have got my first rule of poker in my head of Discipline! Lets hope I wake up feeling great and don't need to make a decision.

Daily Profit/Loss - $500
Casino - $200
Poker - $300
Running Total +$1500 (the cost of the WSOP entry!)
