After the long day of lessons yesterday we felt that our Scotty’s Boot Camp players needed a treat so we took them to one of the gourmet restaurants at the Venetian and then the renowned Lavo club at the Palazzo. It was a night to remember with a flow of bright drinks, great music, a lot of dancing and an occasional real live superman (true story) flying across the room with a bottle of champagne.
Let’s just say it’s a different kind of night club than what I am used to in Malta, and judging by the Expekt.com players faces, their countries too. When we left about 4 players at palazzo at 3 am I thought there’s a good chance they’ll miss this morning brunch and last day of the Scotty’s boot camp but amazingly enough they all arrived (maybe not on time.. ) and were eager to sit down and play Scotty who had a bounty on his head as did the instructor Alex.
The tournament brought many laughs at all kinds of situations. One of these was when Juzzu from Finland got a cramp in his leg conveniently at big blind and couldn’t move to the dealer’s frustration only to one hand later fold AK pre- flop. Scotty was wondering if he hadn’t listened at his lessons?! The players were fighting for an exclusive Word Series of Poker leather jacket signed by Scotty and the “lucky” winner in the end was Georgios from Greece.
The time came to say good bye from our end as we make our way back to Malta tomorrow. I assured my players that I’m way tired of them and would ignore there constant phone calls and text messages, but truth is.. I will miss them! On Saturday they enter the $1,000 #3 event and I will be sitting crossing my fingers all day that they make it through day 1 and show everyone what Expekt.com players are made off!
PS. Did you know that new poker players at Expekt.com poker get a $600 welcome bonus?
