Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Thanks guys, I'll probably end up checking out Bellagio (I'm staying at Paris so it's super convenient) but having Orleans as a fallback for O8 and/or small/mid LHE. I did find them on Bravo and it looks pretty good there (I'll just have to Lyft there or something).

Re: charging security: Thanks for the reminder. I am bringing an external battery so I'll plan to use it to charge the phone instead of plugging in directly to the ports.

I'm not actually sure it is a thing outside of security conferences, but so much of my life is on my phone...

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I was in both an Apple Store and a bank today and in both locations there was a patron with her dog. Is this a thing now? I'll confess I'm not really a dog person. I grew up with dogs, but never really liked them. I wouldn't choose to own one but nor would I kick one if it came up to lick me.

I bring Andy into Wells Fargo where, he has learned, he gets a dog treat.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Yeah, people are selfish and think they can bring their pets anywhere. They even get fake certificates and things for the dogs to wear that say emotional support animal. My wife's grandpa is one of those people and he gets outraged if some place of business tells him he can't bring his pet in there. I'm all for service animals that provide a service, but not for animals who supposedly provide 'support' aka I'm a selfish ******* who wants to bring my dog everywhere. There is a whole thread on it. Someone like attention whore Jason Mercier does it at the ****ing poker table. Yeah, you don't need your dog there, attention seeking *******.

+1

I'm allergic to dogs so anyone who wants to bring their dogs close to me can decide what's more uncomfortable, being without their dog for a few minutes or a face full of snot.

Because I don't cover my mouth and I aim for the dog owner.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

There will always be some that take advantage of such things, but I believe some people do actually need those dogs for nothing more than support and security. Go ahead and sing "you don't have to live like a refugee" by Tom Petty, rip, to your hearts content; it doesn't take away the pain and insecurity that some people live with.

We were collectively stuck around $1500 in 30 minutes. 3 players quit the game because "this isn't real poker" and another berated us and was making comments along the lines of "you won't last long once your trust funds run out".

How likely do you think it is that we would have had a similar experience in a 10/20 NL if we were punting $600 at a time dark? Would the players still be upset and leave the game?

I agree. But other people are physically allergic to dogs.

The needs of the many over the needs of the few. If you can’t make it to the bank by yourself, you have problems a dog can’t cure.

I don't see why the physical ailment of one is more important than the non physical ailment of another.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Sure, but why do they win. If someone needs a support animal buy Cali is deathly allergic to it, why does the person with the mental impediment get to win over cally?

I’m not unsympathetic. But I don’t see why they can’t just tie the animal up outside the bank, conduct business for 5 minutes and then go on their way. Dogs shed, bark, drool, and ocassionally bite people. The 15 people inside the bank shouldn’t be put out for the confort of one person.

Also, the two dogs in question were purse dogs of sorority girls, I’d be surprised if they were support animals of any sort.
