WELCOME to Kimo’s Vegas ... The Player’s Edge!

Anika ... she beat out competitors from Los Angeles, New Mexico, Las Vegas and South Africa to become the third semi-annual Pole-A-Palooza winner. Yep ... she was voted the best pole dancer in all of Sin City at Jet Nightclub. You won’t find her workin’the poles at Vegas gentleman’s clubs because she’s an instructor (legit gig) at Pole Fitness Studios. Her routine won her the $10,000 grand prize plus a $10,000 tip from an exuberant (or should that be inebriated) member of the audience ... that’s a lotta dollar bills.

A SERIES OF L.A. bank robberies were committed by a young man and woman who were nicknamed the “Newlywed Bandits” ... how ironic they were arrested in the wedding capital of the world, Las Vegas.

AT THE GAMING EXPO G2E last week, former U.S. Sen. Alfonse D’Amato (chairman of the Poker Players Alliance) said he believes that the legalization of online poker in the United States will happen in the next 18 months. Wishful thinking ... I guess we’ll all know in a year and a half or so.
