This blog is about my poker games. We all have stories about the big pots, bluffs, bad beats, etc. Here are mine. As I promised to my friends at the Ho-Chunk Casino in Baraboo, WI one day I'll write the book titled "And then I saw the flop" based on my adventures in casinos. This blog is my notepad. You are wellcome to comment, call me a donkey, but please let me enjoy my ride. My ID on the most poker sites is "Navajo Guy", and in local live games I'm known as "Mr. Wegas".
It didn’t matter that he had bluffed off several times before, or that he was stuck, frustrated, and perhaps playing too many hands. My read was that he wanted to get unstuck and this was his hand to do it.
I woke up, and even before having coffee opened WSOP site to check the standings. Main event started with 6683 players, and there is only 291 left after 4 days of play.
My favorites Kenny 'The Freak' Tran, and Jonathan Little are out, but at 12th place I found Vladimir Bozinovic from my hometown Belgrade, Serbia.
Last year Vladimir Bozinovic defeated a final table that included Marvin Rettenmaier and Paul Berende to win the World Poker Tour Baden for $271,258. Now I have a good reason to follow the live updates.
Vladimir Bozinovic is listed with a country Russia, and I wonder what idiot entered that in the system. I thought that can be changed, so I sent a message to my buddy Chad Holloway who reports for Poker News from WSOP floor.
UPDATE: After the beginning of Day 5, country for Vladimir was changed to Serbia.
I know the kid. We had many battles on the felt at Ho-Chunk Casino in Wisconsin Dells. Good job buddy, see you soon on The Strip to celebrate.
Here I am with Chad at Ho-Chunk Casino a few years ago. Chad is not just a bracelet winner, but also a member of my "Klub 69".
