WSOP Swag Report

Good thing the luggage I took to Vegas was packed ver-r-r-r-r-y loosely; the bags came back stuffed. Matter of fact, the bags came back not even the same bags, since an inexpensive red duffel was folded down and tucked within, superceded by a new Mansion Poker Dome duffel that the show provided to each of the lucky participants.

Thirteen days in Vegas, mostly at the WSOP. I did not try to accumulate swaggage; nonetheless, an assortment of trinkets 'n' trash found its way into my possession and made the trip with me back to the dreary Midwest. Let's see what the bags provided, once re-opened...
