Having to arrive at The Bank at Bellagio at 11:00 it was required that I stay till 2:30 in the morning... Shiza! The place was jam packed and filled with almost all my friends. It was fun minus a few haters/fake people I had to deal with, but none the less always good to see and hang out with good friends. I would like to give a special thanks to everyone that showed up and supported me at this party. I love you guys! Especially Liz Lieu who saved the day. You're the best! xoxo

What a day!
I'm home after a verrrry long day my friends. I feel like the energizer bunny that keeps going and going. Thank the Lord for redbull and coffee as I'm going on 3 hours of sleep! Last night I hosted a party at The Bank for the 4 year anneversary of BLUFF and the November cover I did with Christina Lindley. From the Real Deal show I went to Planet Hollywood to Maria Ho and Tiffany Michelle's room and got ready for the party. We've been having a lot of fun while they've been in town and getting ready with the girls always leads to a good night.

Getting home from the party at 3:30 I finally fell asleep around 4 only to wake up at 7:30. I had to get ready to head down to the Rio for the coverage of the final table of the WSOP main event. I think the biggest thing that kept me from not sleeping in was all the excitement. I would be doing color commentary (play by play analysis) for http://www.worldseriesofpoker.com/ along with the bust out interviews. Getting back in the ol' saddle again from last year's coverage I did was a little off given the lack of sleep, but sitting next to Nick Geber and watching this final table play out was amazing. I did have to take a mini break from the table at 3 to head over to the Venetian as I still had my show to do at the Real Deal. It was also a fun show with Jennifer Harman and Todd Brunson and special guest Marco Traniello. We had an a female player from the audience go on to win the table and the $1500 bracelet which has great to see. From there I ran back to the Penn and Teller theater to get back to the action of the final table. Sadly David "Chino" Rheem (my pick to win) had busted along with Kelly Kim and Craig Marquis. (pic with Scott Montgomery the 5th place finisher who was eliminated by a one outer...ouch!)I'll be writing a full post on this day on my PokerListings blog coming very soon. As for now I can barely keep my eyes open. Tomorrow I'll be at The Real Deal! with Todd Brunson and Eli Elezra for our 5pm show and then back at the Rio at 8pm to cover the heads up match between Peter Eastgate and Ivan Demidov. Two non americans (Danish and a Russian) and great poker players to boot that will play for a $9.1 million fist prize. I'll be making my updates along the way that you can follow on my Twitter page: www.twitter.com/laceyjones Until then sweet dreams and Gnight.
