Deodorant is your best friend…

Stuff I learned:

–I’m more of a lightweight than I thought. Also puking in the MGM bathroom is a pleasant experience because one of those bathroom attendant guys will bring you a nice warm towel if you ask for it.
–That I will never beat A-Sakura, ever. Seeing as how this is the end of CvS2 as a competitive game, I never made it over the top.
–If I just open fold KQo every time I get it, I’ll be up at least $1000 more every month. Swear to god that hand cost me about $400 this week.
–Carrying $2500 in cash on me makes me legitimately paranoid.
–Being in a manwich with Nam and NKI is, in fact, too gay for me.
–When someone comes up to you with a Gatorade bottle that is a dark brown color, don’t drink it. It isn’t Gatorade. Also, try not to chug it under any circumstances. Taste before chug. No matter how thirsty you are.
–I need to play more than 1 character/team in every game from now on. AKA I have to play a game enough where I can learn more matchups. Losing to Kusumondo because I only play Vega sucks and losing to random A-Sakura because K-Yama can’t stop getting eaten alive makes me sad.
–TvC is going to be a really fun game.
–SF4:CE (which is what console version is basically going to be) is going to be really fun also. SF4:vanilla…ehhhhhhh, a lot of people were already starting to complain by the time Saturday rolled around.

#7

Fitting 20 people in your room is hard but doable (and a really bad idea).

-Horse Racing game is fucking dope and hype.

#9

smaller eyes, killing intent, may or may not want to hear your shit: inkblot

evo…UGH

-strider hiryu can drink 1/2 bottle of rum by himself and stumble all the way to MGM to pick me up then pass out right when we’re supposed to drink
-some people are super cheap even if they win hella money from poker
-hooters wings are gdlk but the service sucks and that skinny ass asian hostess bugged the hell out of me

-jetphi laying down the vietnamese magic on the ladies
-NOBODY retires from videogames…they just lie…
-vodka/cranberries are sent from heaven


#11

If you are heading into a restaurant with a large group of people, and are being seated next to an even larger group of people, make fucking sure your server knows to split the motherfucking checks, so you don’t end up with like 9 extra orders of hotwings on your bill and some steak and eggs you never had.


#12

since i didnt do much besides drink/play poker the entire week, this is what i learned.

-although gatorade bottles hold more liquor than bottled water bottles, the latter is easier to carry around
-in vegas you really only need 1 meal a day. the rest of your basic calorie needs can easily be obtained from alcohol consumption

  • dont bet on/against mike ross. somehow i still lose in the end.
  • calling two all ins with KK preflop with dudes holding AK and AJ and i can still lose because dealer magically runs out quadzilla.
  • Tropicana TVs obv are gdlk. 16in old crt with 7 channels and no av hookups. what more could you ask for.
    -If you get hooked up with an EvO tee earlier because john choi hooked you up, leave ballroom immediately because evo staff will not hesistate to steal it back from your drunk ass.
    -bring fiber. i did not have a single bowel movement that wasnt just squirting out of my ass. im not sure if it was the alcohol or them chimichangas in the ballroom.
    -the entire trip i was between NKI and Viscant, who were almost always just in boxers. obv hard to resist temptation. although one night i was just passed the fuck out and apparently some sorta sandwich took place, and im not sure whether i was bread or meat
    -while in the room, we were watching womens volleyball, and the Jap team has some bitch named takeashite. take a shit e. shit had me dying.
    -driving home from vegas at 5am is obv a good idea esp when youre sleepy.
