The new Amazon room is awesome. Harrah's transformed a warehouse room of tables into a landscape that tips its hat to WSOP champions past and present. The room is decorated with giant screens of past World Series winners as if it were the crown molding of the room. In the cash game area there is a walled off section of tables for high limit play. Yesterday I saw Men the Master playing what looked like a variant of Chinese Poker.The wall is waist high giving the players room and some privacy but still allowing the public to see who's in there.
I ran into Gavin straight off and he looked great. He's lost some weight, has a new girlfriend and is in top spirits. I haven't seen him in a long time but he wished me happy birthday and said barbaques are on the front burner. I can't wait to meet his girl, and am so happy for him.
Yesterday there was a fair commotion about a new deck of cards being used at the series.
