I will admit that in terms of playing poker, I only ever seemed to stumble to my hotel's games and waste my time and effort there (it was Alladin's then Planet Hollywood)... the "free drinks" were nice considering how much I was dropping once by myself and once with a now ex crazy ass girlfriend.
We did a little bit of wandering around, checking out some "clubs" in our hotel and others, which were pretty weak IMO. We wandered over to Bellagio, because she wanted to see the fountains from every view (we were across the street and had a dead-on view of them from our hotel room but whatever) and I wanted to see some high-end poker. There was some sort of a halfway-decent poker event going on that was getting near an end (it was either FT or final 2). Daniel Negreanu looked over a couple times during the game and then standing up from the table waiting for another player to take forever to make a decision he stares blankly at her, winks and smiles. She is basically ALL over me while this happens. I kinda look at her, look at him, look at the poker timer and go "okay, time to go"... wasn't about to wait the 10 minutes until break to see where that could have gone. lol in hindsight, maybe I could have, he could have saved me a lifetime of headaches to come!
