So the other night at the Mirage 40/80, it was getting late--pushing 4am--and I kind of one-eighth heard one of the other players talking to the dealer about something concerning wireless internet connections. I immediately thought nothing of it and forgot about it.

Then I heard the dealer ask, "Does anyone mind?" And I glance up to see that same player pulling out his laptop computer from a bag. Figuring he was just going to check email or whatever I grunted in reply which I hoped would be taken for "Why, not at all. Thank you for asking, fine sir," and once again I immediately forgot about it.

But then a few minutes later I glanced over at him during a hand and saw that his computer screen was facing the table. And on that computer screen was a sight that I knew very, very, very well.

He had open two tables on Party Poker. No fucking shit. Here he was playing a live 40/80 game and he was also multi-tabling at Party.

Talk about high comedy. I've joked with friends many times about doing just that--sitting down at a live poker table and in the long dead time between hands playing some online poker, but even I never had the cajones to actually try and do it.

But now I'm very tempted...

If you pull this off, you are a jackass.

I think it can be done, but only at specific times. I was just there last night, and being Friday night I don't think having a laptop would have worked.

Tuesday night when there's only four tables going in the entire room and the game's six-handed...we'll see...
