Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Thanks guys, lucky to run good in a very good lineup (that didn't, thankfully, include holmfries. Not that I don't like playing with you HF, but you know).

Would the real David Fongs please stand up? I'm not him. My first name is David though, and the beginning of my last name sort of sounds like Fongs.

He does actually play at CP. On black friday last year I won a drawing, and when they called my name, it sounded close enough over the muffled microphone that he tried to claim it. He also won a later drawing, but I did not try to claim it.

Yeah I'm a white guy who is much younger than the real David Fongs. If he ever decides he wants to join 2p2 and work on his game, he'll have to go the Daniel Negreanu route and be RealDavidFongs

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Fridays are usually very good, especially since when I can play, it's weekday days, but damn, when it really jumps off and you run bad, ugh. Highlight I was not involved in was multiway-multibet preflop, three ways on turn and 86 is good on K822K.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

This was a new one.

New player who is terrible, doesn’t grasp the rules and basically is playing this like a table game is on my right in the 20/40. He is making all sorts of mistakes - acting out of turn, betting the wrong amount, etc. He is also rebuying $100 at a time with crumpled
$20s.

So he gets to the turn on one hand and he is second to act in a three way pot. First guy checks, he puts out $20, next guy puts out $40 to call and he mucks (both out of turn and not facing an aggressive action). The dealer didn’t try to correct his initial bet (the third player in the hand and I did) and the dealer just aggressively swept his cards into the muck when he folded, the called the floor who of course made the guy put the other $20 in before play resumed.

What a **** show.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Fun hand I played at commerce.

Gambling guy that just sat down from the pit raises UTG, crazy aggro and sometimes fishy korean calls cutoff, sb tightish rec 3bets, I call kq in the bb because I am stuck and want to gamble, all call.

flop is qq7 two hearts, I have the k of hearts. Sb bets, I raise, the two gamblers cold call, sb 3bets, I 4bet, both call.

Turn 2h. Check, I bet, chinese guy raises, korean 3b, sb folds, I call, chinese guy 4bets, we both call.

River 7, I donk and they both fold. The korean guy had pocket deuces and the chinese guy open mucked the ace high flush. Someone said that I bluffed and I said I had a queen, but they didnít believe me because I four bet the flop and called a 3bet on the turn. They said they would never call there with a queen.

I don't think anyone clearly explained to him that nobody raised and he owed $20 more because that is the correct amount of his bet. I already told you this at the table, but I really think the dealer's conduct is beyond the pale. This guy was losing the hand anyway, but he ended up feeling cheated, and is a lot less likely to come back.

Some of the dealers seem to be more concerned with their hands per hour than pretty much anything else.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

I am going to be at Canterbury tonight. I will try to win all of the dollars. I will most likely lose all of the dollars.

Will be buying into the 20 game with crumpled 20 dollar bills again.

Agreed - dealer handled it badly all around. Also, not sure if you noticed but he told the guy he needed $200 to rebuy after the hand, which I guess is technically true if he had been felted. But the dealer didnít take the time to clearly explain the minimum buy in.

So like I said a **** show all around.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Had a fun hand today. 20/40 full game.

I am in small blind. MP opens and a tough winning player 3 bets in CO. Folds to me in SB and I cap, BB and rest call.

Flop comes QJT I bet, call, MP raises, CO 3 bets, I call, BB calls, MP caps, all call.

Turn 4. Check check MP bets, CO raises in a way where it is pretty obvious to me he has AK, so I call, BB folds, MP calls.

River 8 Check check bet, call and MP calls. We obviously chop, but I think playing it the way that I did got us a lot more bets IMO.

So you think MP folds to 3 bets on the turn? Maybe... But why not lead the river to try to trap MP for two bets?

I think you might have done better just raising the turn.

Wow, if I played there I'd never tip that dealer again (assuming I win another pot).

Dealer was clearly just annoyed at this guy and not willing to take the time to teach him the rules. This guy wasnít tipping anyway. For me, I would have rather he not treat the guy this way (in general, but also because the guy was shoveling money into the game) but I am not going to stiff him as a result.

At my casino, if a player mucks for any reason, even out of turn and not facing action, the dealer should muck their hand right away.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

A former regular (regular as in there all of the time) Bellagio 20 player who I was told was perma-barred 3 or 4 years ago has reappeared recently. Anyone know what happened?

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Played some at the MGM national harbor last evening. Got about 2 hours into the 20 game before it broke. Mostly an obnoxious and unwelcoming crowd of regs - which was unfortunate because it seemed like a very good game other than two solid spots. It eventually got down to the two of them, me and a tourist so we called it a night.

Re: 2019 NC/LC THREAD - No problem

Lol, this room sucks. Dealer just let some woman take money out of her pocket and buy chips to put them in play during the middle of the hand. Another guy and me tell the dealer she can’t do that and get voted down by the rest of the table.

Aaaiyah no wonder why they don’t spread bigger games here.
