2nd place that feels almost as good as 1st

I arrived back in Vegas a few hours ago.

My last evening with Cardgrrl we decided to join Mrs. Lederer's occasional Thursday-night All Vegas Poker game. This time around it was the 8-game mix, a real challenge. The coolest part was that Cardgrrl and I were the only two to make the "money" (just free points, sadly). Once we got down to heads-up, I realized that I really didn't care who won, which I don't think I've ever experienced in a poker tournament before. Cardgrrl got short-stacked early on and had to mount an epic comeback to win, so I'm happy that she did.
