I haven't been down there much to play; any straddling? will they run it twice/three/four times in a heads up all in/huge pot if both players agree?


There's usually one guy at every table that straddles consistently. I think you can straddle to 8 after the first guy straddles to 4 (assumining 1-2 game) but I'm not even sure. It rarely happens.


Yeah, yeah...I lived in Vegas for 6 years. But I have zero idea what this means...little help??

Just got home; was going to put in a morning session, but lady is headed to Orlando for work so I shot home to take her to the airport.

Played 1/2 to start; bought in for $200. Was card dead for the first 30 minutes at the table; picked up A-10 suited on the button. Raised to $15. Picked up one guy, out of position. Flop comes 7-4-10, rainbow. Top-top for me, he leads out for $15, I bump to $35, he calls. Turn is a 9. I'm pretty much only sweating 6-8 / J-8 or a set now; tough time putting him on either of the former. He checks it, I check back. (I probably should have value bet here, but I had a feeling he was set peddling, and given the result, the check ended up saving me money.) River blanks and he leads out again for $30, I smooth call and he flips over....6-8 off. He called a raise with 6-8 off out of position and I pretty much had the tightest image at the table. Donked off about $100 that session.

Dinner break at MGM: Craft-Steak house. Expensive as shit, but the food was great.

Back to the 1/2 tables: Sat for a couple hours, made about $120, most of it one one hand, A-A vs J-J. Overall, broke even at the poker tables.

Late night craps family run; father, uncle and two brothers. (one of my brothers pulled a Ronnie B and played the don't pass/don't come the entire session and got smoked. former poster scal78 hangs his head in shame.) I made about $400 (should have been more but I didn't play 6/8/10 like I normally would when it was my roll and I rolled 3 points and about 14 6/8/10's), father made $1600, uncle $1000...

Were you trying to use every word in poker slang dictionary or did it just come out that way?

"smooth call" always cracks me up.

I'll be sure to put "lol" next time...

Not picking on you Sim, just the roundabout way poker players tell a story that would be shorter if told in the days before the Hold Em explosion.

it would be much shorter as 99% of us wouldn't even be playing. I had never heard of the game before Chris Moneymaker's run.

First time I heard "smooth call", I asked guy next to me (may have been dealer) what it meant. He shrugged and said "It means he called".

Sim,

I don't always play the don't pass/come line. However I'm definitely not afraid if the table is cold or there is a mush like Friar rolling the bones. Regardless it sounds like you had a good time and had a good meal.
