Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

How expensive are the beers there generally? Bonus points for giving pour sizes and breaking it out by...

low-grade (bud, coors, etc.)
mid-grade (magic hat, sam adams, newcastle, sierra nevada)
high-end (duvel, dogfish 90-min)

Anyone have a recommendation for a man's haircut in AC? Not looking for a barber but instead a scissor cut at a salon. Had one at Borgata last time I was there. Kind of a mess, though. Thanks.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

About the only two places that run stud these days in AC are the Taj and Borgata. At the Taj it isn't regular and doesn't always run. I don't know about Borgata. On the weekends at the Taj you can pretty much always find a 1-5 Stud game or a 5/10 stud game. But I don't know about higher than that though. Although they do spread it, just don't know what stakes (maybe 15/30 Stud) or how often it runs.

Re: Atlantic City General Discussion

They almost always have 20/40 Stud at Taj, sometimes the lower limits. They often have 20/40 and 75/100 stud at Borgata, especially weekends.

Dang it all - can't a guy get any sleep around here these days without people yelling and waking him up?!

Seriously - a PM might be a good idea if anyone is trying to reach me. I've been, um, distracted - yeah, distracted - a lot of late.

As for where to get a haircut, is this really a question? Harrah's has a good spa, so does Showboat. On Mondays, Showboat has a special deal on men's haircuts - $19 if my memory serves. I've used both and had no problems. Friendly, efficient, good service - what more could one ask for?

Heart Huge, great, result at the 2/5 table! :) :)



My problem with this thread was where to put it?!

NVG? Maybe, because it is news - but not really NVG type news. Gossip too, I suppose, because I thinks we've started some.

BBV? Maybe - because it's a sick brag. But every time I try entering BBV I end up running in terror, so I don't think so.

The Harrah's AC thread? Maybe - 'cause it started there. But then almost nobody would get to read this. Same thing for the AC Regional thread.

So, here it is - pending being moved by our resident "tyrant". (Seriously, Rapini, if you think that this belongs elsewhere - feel free to relocate.)

It started back on May 9th. A Monday night, at Harrah's in A.C. The 2/5 table, to be precise - table 33. I'm in the 9 seat, she's in the 5 seat.

I join the game, and an attractive brunette is noticeable. Not so much because of her undeniable good looks, as her obvious intelligence and fun-loving banter with the dealer. There something about a smart-ass lady that I find very attractive. Also, for me, intelligence is a huge turn-on.

I was definitely interested, and was trying to figure out how to get her attention. (Turned out that she had already noticed me, but wasn't giving off any clues.)

After a little while, I'm opening a hand with a raise. The button called, as did lady 5 seat, who was the big blind.

There was a flop - she bets, I raise, the button folds, she calls.

There was a turn - she checks, I go all in ('cause she's short stacked) and she calls.

River is a brick, and my aces hold up.

I thought that she'ld rebuy, but no - she leaves the table. I jump up to say hi and try and ask her out (ok, maybe not the best timing.....)

For some odd reason, she declines - and I'm greeted back at the table with a lot of laughter and "why didn't you fold AA if you were going to ask her out?",
"Don't stack off a gal and then ask her out.", "You can't play poker and try to get a date at the same time.", etc.

Next day, I'm heading to the Diamond Club for lunch - and she's in line to get in. I grab a table near the front where I know she'll have to come by, and when she does I ask her to join me.

She suggests we go to a table farther in the back of the room - Ok by me!

1/2 hour later - we'd exchanged phone numbers and email addresses.

5 months later - we're very much in love and spending all the time we can together. Thus, my lack of frequency on 2+2, among other things.

Where is this going? We don't know, yet - but we're having a great time together and definitely have become a source of amusement at every table we play at.

Love and happiness can be found at the poker table - we're proof.

Uh, huh - and also the rule about not using names.

Pics may, or may not, be forthcoming.

The 'rule' is there for a reason. You see what's going on itt? 145 views and you only got replies from me. Why? Bec you didn't post any pics, that's why, and I'm friend enough to tell you.

Re: Huge, great, result at the 2/5 table! :) :)

Nice story. I'm seriously curious what she looks like. Does she play a lot of poker?

Good luck in everything to you and her!

Nice story for the grandkids.

You: I met grandma at the poker table where I stacked her and she shot me down! Then we bumped into each other at the Diamond Club and been together ever since!
Kid #1: Grandpa, do you have a gambling problem?
Kid#2: Grandpa, can you teach me how to 'stack' a girl? That sounds like fun.

I know both parties involved and yes they are together. The poker community can be a small community, so if the man wants some privacy let him have it. He posts his name on here, but to my knowledge she is not on 2+2 and she might want to keep her anonymity. We should all respect that.

Re: Huge, great, result at the 2/5 table! :) :)

Come on Lee, at least check behind on the turn to induce a river bluff so that you can have some sort of IWTSTH/"who shows first" issue to make this thread suitable for B&M.

But seriously, congrats! I know that when we were hung out in AC you lit up when you spoke about this girl. I'm glad it's worked out so far.

[Note: I'm gonna merge this thread with the AC General Discussion Thread now.]
