Quick Vegas Update
Well, I'm in Las Vegas, chillin' out, enjoying myself, playing online poker and looking forward to the Main Event which starts on July 3.
It's a bummer I can't play but it's the third year I've been out here and been underage so I'm kinda getting used to it. Roll on next year.
Best news outside of poker since my last post was seeing my home country Norway winning the Eurovision Song Contest live in Russia. It was an amazing event watching it in Moscow and the best song won:) Check it out below.
I'm really enjoying commentating on poker these day and I got another chance at the Womens World Open. It should be live on Channel 5 (UK) later this year. I was really surprised at the level of play...much higher than I expected.
So, after a brief trip back to Noway, I arrived in Vegas. It's so good catching up with people I've not seen for a long time and it's a great place to meet new people. I've seen some good shows and films and just taking it easy really.
Had to laugh at fellow Betfair Pro John Tabatabai's trouble at the Wynn Hotel....still it didn't stop me going for dinner there the other night...the food is amazing.
Betfair have kindly re-written my account of winning the WSOPE bracelet in 2007...corrected my grammar and all! Check it out on the WSOPE Official site when its live. I know...bragging is lame but it's just for those who've not seen it yet.
Got myself some horses in the WSOP Main Event and looking forward to see how they get on. Got a press conference about the Caesars Cup shortly - really looking forward to that...the Caesars Cup not the press conference:)
Well, I did the press conference. Here it is below...it wasn't too bad:) Europe's first pick was Peter Eastgate while The Americas got Phil Ivey. Never heard of him <3
