Las Vegas can be tiring and tilting if you are there for too long without getting the Poker results you were expecting. Not only is this affecting the bankroll but Sin City also gives your state of mind a hard time with all the futile distractions that are offered at every street corner.
The desert is a marvelous place to be to refocus on oneself and to bury one’s Poker demons once and for good and one does not even have to travel that far to isolate oneself and recenter on one’s goals and get back to one’s A-game.
Amongst of the closest areas that will give you a notion of ‘in the middle of nowhere’, is the Red Rock National Conservation Area a one hour-drive outside the city towards the West. Additionally, there is a nice trip to Mount Charleston to be made with its elevation of almost 12.000 ft. If you are into hiking, you should already be on your way! Not only is the view down into the desert quite impressive, the climate also changes pretty drastically with temperatures dropping, the air getting more humid and a green vegetation other than cactuses showing up again from 4.000 ft. It’s even regularly snowing there in the winter. Who would have thought?
All in all, a nice way to prepare your World Series Of Poker (WSOP) Main Event that has started yesterday with Day 1A with 764 entries.
