They will likely make horrendously horrific comments because 9 out of 10 dentists agree that 9 out of 10 steeler fans are raging racist douche bag *******s. However these people own a condo so...well...**** never mind. Troll on trollah

So a few years ago I invited some Steelers fans over to watch a Pats-Steelers game. They kept yelling "KILL HIM!" and "MURDER HIM!" at the TV in front of my 2-year-old, who I quickly shuffled off to his bedroom. :\

I don't got any short right now. It's mostly a couple of my friends that trade it. They are really good at timing it (don't believe the losers that say you can't time the market). The one guy has made a small fortune shorting Tesla, fer crying out loud.

#OneLongSession

Sit down, buy chips, don't win a hand for an hour and a half, wife texts (she hasn't been feeling well) I have to pick her up at BART a couple hours earlier than normal. "Uhh...would you mind waiting until I actually win a hand, you know, for psychological purposes?"

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD -- Small Stakes, 40 years to Mars

I'm actually dreading the time where I have to take my mom to play the slots because the closest place is a fairly new, nice, tribal casino with the worst paybacks known to mankind.

This actually happened to me once in PLO. 3 bet strong aces w/ Ace high spades OOP, flop a J64 board, get it in about 1k deep in a 2/5 PLO OL game, get shown the KQ42 that opened UTG, turn 9...

I take mom twice/month or so to play the Wheel of Fortune at Talking Stick. I've tried to explain the difference between tribal casinos and The Orleans where we stay in LV regarding payouts and I get the same answer every time: 'But what if I win?'

OTOH, the WoF has brought me closer to God bec when I pray in front of it I REALLY mean it!

Reminds me of Suburban Poker Man. He used to be my favorite poster for laughs. Something about taking his decimated poker troops/chips to the craps table to (improve their morale? kill off the weak?) something.

Re: 2017! NC/LC THREAD -- Small Stakes, 40 years to Mars

When I played sub-1h sessions, leaving before winning a pot was pretty common and I bet there was at least one time I left before VPIPing.

It was easy to tell when I didn't win a pot because I would have zero $1 chips. Never having VPIPed was a little harder to tell because I had to calculate whether I was down an integral number of blinds, and that was just too depressing.

I think super small sessions like that are tougher to be patient, especially if you are one that needs to book wins. The clock pressure is real.

It's great for image, though, when I sit down, raise 10 times in 3 orbits while stuffing my face, then say I gotta get back to work.

Aren't you in the Bay area? Take her to the grungy old one (Casino San Pablo) and tell her they're all like that. She might not go back.
