90-Seater Cash / Atlantic City

So I think I mentioned how one of my goals for the next month or two is to win one of the 90-player SNG's ($5 ones on FTP). Coming into this I had played maybe 15-20 total so far and managed to have a number of top 3 finishes plus a few other cashes, but no complete victories. Well I gave it a shot tonight for the first time in about half a year and managed to finish 4th... which was decent considering the relatively cold end of the deck that I was being dealt. Things were pretty slow for the majority of the tournament, and not many extraordinary hands really. My bust out was just a simple short-stack move for the blinds running in to a better hand. I might have time for another go-round this weekend, but probably not... just too much other stuff going on.

In other news it looks like I very well may be going to Atlantic City in about a month. The trip is mainly for a bachelor party for a friend of mine that's getting married in June, but I'd expect we'd spend a fair amount of our time playing poker. I'm probably the biggest card player of the bunch, so I don't want to force everyone else to spend the entire weekend at the casinos... but really... what else is there to do? Seriously... I've actually never been there before so I'm not sure what to expect. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
