DOYLISM OF THE DAY: “When things go wrong, don’t go wrong with them.”

The WSOP is winding down and I’m glad because I am physically and mentally exhausted. I knew it was time to back off when I tried to start my car with my house key and tried to get into my house with my car key! That’s not a good sign and I’m not only ducking the last few tournaments, I’m not playing in some very good cash games .

You talk about records! Forget about how many cashes you have or how many bracelets. Some day someone will break these records but I set one which will never be broken. I’ve lost two scooters in the last three World Series of Poker. Try and break that record! I parked my scooter, which was one week old, outside the VIP room at the Rio and when I came out, it was gone. Of course, I left the keys in it, but what kind of sicko steals a handicapped scooter? Year before last during the WSOP I had dinner at the Bellagio, got my car out of valet, and went to my suite at the Rio. When I parked, I noticed my scooter was not on the lift. I have no idea where I lost it but I think it fell off the back of my car when I didn’t secure it properly. Of course, the bottle of wine I had had with dinner had absolutely nothing to do with it.

I have to go to the Doylesroom party tonight. I’m going to try to get home early because I have three days of book signings and interviews coming up. However I know how these things go when you get to these parties. One thing for sure, I’m leaving my scooter at home tonight! :)
