Doyle Brunson to Doc: Now I Know How a Muppet Feels

The WSOP makes my schedule a living hell. I try to play as many tournaments as possible but with all the other stuff I have to do, I have to be pretty selective.

I'm trying to do an update on SS/2, getting ready for the seminars with Mike Caro, keeping up with the NBA Finals, taking care of my dogs, keeping dental and doctor appointments, trying to keep the bills caught up, remembering to tweet each day, and trying to get to the cash games! Pretty hectic and would be a lot easier if Louise ever comes home. She must have a boyfriend in Hawaii for her to stay away this long.
