Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

6-12 midweek afternoon is pretty mellow by default but yesterday as some seats are being filled, I can tell the game is going to jump off to an unusual degree. I jokingly mumble to a dealer that I would like to make a full house sometime in the next hour or so. No full house was forthcoming. 🤮

Ended up -160, felt like -1600

Makes you wonder what Yale would have paid not to have some of the accounts of their university come out. Maybe they're just Yale and they don't care? New advertising for Cal Tech could be "We're not Ivy League. None of the misogyny. A better education." You could replace "none of" with less?

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

A buddy from Canterbury park (Kid Poker, happy birthday) sent me a video of him smashing quad tens on a 6 6 T 6 T board, but being real unhappy because J6 was UTG and folded preflop.

Probably warrants a BBV post.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Last two sessions and not even a remotely decent postable hand except for the ones I played like a boss and no one needs to be bored w/ those.

And, as long as I'm at it, I put the percentage of players whom I can't figure how they manage to get through the day by themselves at 34%.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

YW. I was particularly intrigued by the middle aged man in the 5 seat: He looked like a serial killer or perhaps an idiot savant, never knew when the action was on him or what the bet was. And he's just one of many.

Playing limit poker, no flop yet:

"How much is the bet?"

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

I’ve a actually talked to the floor once about a guy who is a regular who I legitimately believe shouldn’t be playing. He has some sort of mental disability, but not an entirely obvious one. Plays up to 20/40, always min buyins and just puts it all in until the river. He plays like an ultimate Texas Holdem game. I’ve seen him call down with 7/8/9 high multiple times. It is just sad

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

The dark side of poker revealed yet again and it's something we can't do anything about. But, since I'm a BJ degen I can tell you that I see the worst sort of plays, unimaginably* bad plays, and the house doesn't stop the players so there is that.

*Example: Splitting 20 v. a 10. The dealer tries to 'counsel' them sometimes (some of them have apparently given up) and they do it anyway.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

How high would an ace side count have to be for splitting TT v dealer T to be genius?

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Prob never happen, you'd need the entire shoe dealt w/ no Aces out and it's the last hand of the shoe or something like that. The other day someone split 3-3 v. a T and I see dumb stuff like that regularly

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Saw a dude hit hard 19 once. Dealer wouldn't let him do it, so the player called the floor over and made him overrule the dealer.

BAM, 2.

Re: 2018 NC/LC - Misteaks Were Made

Every now and then I think about this one: 1995 playing at Binions, $25 table (don't remember what the guy bet). He's got hard 14, dealer has a T. Player wants to double-down. They tried to do right by the guy: dealer spends a fair amount of time explaining the situation, player wants to do it. Dealer calls the floor and HE takes time explaining, player wants to do it. And, BINGO!, gets the 7.

Often enough a dealer will shoot me a glance when someone is playing this way and catches the card I need. I always shrug and say 'It doesn't bother me, it's all random.' I've gone off the deep end, though. Many of the floors don't even need to see my card anymore and virtually all of the dealers know my name. I'm a good tipper, never get upset, and they appreciate it. But, fml, there I am trying to grind $15/hr at 8-16 only to run off and play that idiot game.

I don't see the mutual exclusion.

I'm sure that a lot of people who crush blackjack, as with many who crush poker, who aren't balla.

Don't forget LEDs on the undercarriage. Also, you can say "riced out", we're all friends here.
