(day 3) glory days, well they'll pass you by.....

ok poker fans, we are back in exciting atlantic city where caesars is booked for the night, so we pack up to head for our new hotel: hard rock.

as we ride the moving walkway over pacific avenue to the caesars parking garage i'm stunned to see a guy who looks like one of the most vicious high school wrestlers in pennsylvania history entering the casino. after losing in the state finals his freshman year, "mr w" employed his punishing, physical style to maul his way to three consecutive crowns, along the way making my own junior year hell. in an early season tri-meet with a future penn state wrestler and mr w, i cruise to a major decision win against the nittany lion to be ...but mr w pins us both. later at piaa regionals he smashed me 10-1.

after high school mr w didn't take the conventional path. pre-internet there were rumors of injuries accumulating from his hyper aggressive style to a strange comeback attempt at a big 8 school. who knew for sure?

i turn to look back, but mr w, or whoever it was, has faded into the crowd.

me and estrella spend the afternoon at the outlets before checking into our new home in the hard rock south tower. this time when i fling the curtains open i'm greeted with an amazing view, similar to the lion's over at club wyndham skyline tower.

down on the beach i step on a sharp seashell. for a moment i think a skype consultation with 46 zilzal may be necessary but the salty atlantic waters naturally make things better. the lion has plans for a night time assault on marina poker rooms borgata and harrah's but estrella and i opt to stay on the boardwalk for the evening.

tomorrow: blue oyster bar?

game: none
year: +71 (1-0)
