Oh Canada...A trip to visit a few of my pokerspace friends

3 years ago at 4:39 pm

I just returned from a mini vacation to Toronto. I had the pleasure of meeting my friends and old crew cup mates Graham (GJWalk), Lesley (Nutbreaker), Chris (Arukidinme) and Tracy (Melodyme). Id like to thank Pokerspace for bringing us together as well as all the other great people that I have made friends with in this community. Id like to thank Graham for being so hospitable and picking me up and dropping me off at the airport. Im glad to have met them in person and look forward to seeing them again in Vegas in a few months.

So, I was to be there from Thursday through Sunday but my short vacation was cut even shorter due to problems with my flights and completely killed Thursdays activities. Friday, Graham, Lesley and I made a trip to Niagara and played a few hours of $1/2 cash game. Lesley killed it and brought in a couple hundred (which happened to be just enough for the later festivities), I took just under a hundred and Graham wasnt as fortunate and dropped a few bucks. Later that night we went to one of Lesleys favorited watering holes where Chris met us after he got off work and Tracy also came and joined us after her local poker game finished. Needless to say we had a blast and had one or two cocktails. I got to see a good little tour of downtown during the day and did some shopping with Tracy Saturday. Saturday night we went to the hockey game and watched their Leafs get worked over by their rival Canadiens. The only thing the Leafs did well was win the only real fight of the night. We took it a little easier Saturday night and had some dinner and drinks and headed in at a reasonable time since i had to fly out first thing in the morning. Experiencing a new city and meeting my friends in person was wonderful.

Im not a big fan of tourist attractions and I suck at getting a lot of pictures but here is a few shots from my weekend in Toronto.

Here is a few pictures of me and the ladies...
