This summer, over July 4th weekend, Imawhale brought 8 players to Las Vegas for a sponsored retreat. It was an amazing weekend. Activities included a day of boating on Lake Mead with a Water Jet Pack, Live Poker night at Aria, Instructional Seminars on poker and finance, and a 4th of July pool party at my house. Things went so well that a few of the players became interested in making the move to Las Vegas. The enthusiasm spread and there was quickly enough interest to set up an Imawhale poker house.
We began looking at potential properties and found the perfect place, an amazing fully-furnished 7,200 square foot mansion in a gated community. There are 6 bedrooms of varying sizes, and an outdoor pool and patio area complete with hot tub and palm trees. The house was originally owned by Mike Tyson’s head security guard (who installed Go-Go dancer platforms in the living room!).
The players moved in on October 1st. We’re one month in and things are going even better than we could have hoped for. The house is a huge success! Being in a professional environment with fellow grinders is helping the players take their work ethic and play to the next level. Five of the six guys living in the house posted their career best months in October!
We offered them a bonus program, where they could earn a reward for meeting monthly volume goals. The team rallied together, worked hard and met their October goal. They decided on adding an additional deep freezer for extra food storage space, and also a ping pong table. The ping pong table in the middle of the main living room, and so far it’s getting a ton of use!
Stay tuned for more updates on the poker house and our other endeavors soon!
