Live Casino Action
November 22, 2005

Well tonight I made my first ever trip to the Casino to play Texas Hold'em. I was pretty unfamiliar with the rules, as the table had a max raise of 10, and a few other strange rules that took a while to get used to. I was down to my last $20 (from $100) when I was dealt 66, the flop was 2 2 6, which means that I had flopped a full house. I tripled my money, and it was all smooth sailing from there on out. I lost 4 or 5 big pots to straights and flushes, but other than that I did pretty well. I walked away up $50 which sure beats sitting in the hotel watching TV. I also managed to meet about 8 people throughout the time I was there, one of which was the definition of the word "Cougar". She was about 35 or 40 and when she wasn't losing money on the table she was continually made jokes about how I didn't know her hotel room number yet..

I can't believe how busy Elko is, apparently there are $98 dollar flight + hotel packages from Spokane. The catch is before you can buy the package you have to show them that you have $350 cash to take with you, otherwise they won't sell it to you. Strange..

Work is going smoothly, I managed to configure the Cisco Wireless AP without much hassle, and they are being installed in the ceiling tomorrow morning.

All in all a good day.


that's awesome, keep up the good poker work. I will be joining you at the front lines in approximately 48 hours!
