    I'll tell you the one I was referring to with trying to job chitwood above. Most of us were playing for final table chip count, but he (with a points lead) and one guy that could catch him were playing for a guaranteed seat. Me and chitwood are at different tables and the villain is to my right. In the crippling hand for your hero Volente, I dumped a bunch to the villain.

    Eights or better, all manner of forced bets are rising vs my stack, and I wake up to Aces with a 2 showing. Stud hands card by card are boring and I also don't really remember, but I end up with Aces up and just miss drawing low. Villian's final board is 2-4-6-7. My low missed so we chop, no doubt. Villain turns over 4-4-2. $#@! me. "Welp, chitwood...I hope you're playing good...he's got bullets".

    Final table for the 2nd seat starts at 2. Lemme run goot.

    I heard you did not run so goot. I'll try and bring you back some $ from Vegas, as long as I don't oversleep and miss the tourney.

    It was quite the $#@!show. I had 4 gut punching river beats in the first 90 minutes and pretty quickly lost interest in trying to grind my way back. The biggest pot of which was a Razz hand where the "professional dealer" dealt 7th street face up and my opponent (on his 2nd try) caught a 1 out wheel to beat my 6 high.

    To be fair, if you're playing razz you are probably a masochist.

    That game is brutal. I play in a weekly game where we always have a PL HORSE tournament. Poor bastard the other night started with A234 and his last 3 cards were A23 to bubble out of the tourney.

    That's my standard Razz runout to lose to someone whose board is like T977

    On the bright side, I busted out so fast I only had to play one level of Razz. By the time we got to that Razz hand, I'd already had 2 flopped sets chased down by runner-runner flushes and, while I didn't know it yet, a dirty boat over boat stud beat was coming.

    So there's that.

    A few weeks ago, I played J-10 of spades from the cutoff. Dealer calls. Flop is A-K-Q, with the K and Q of spades. I have a straight, a royal flush draw, and a straight flush draw. I bet big and the dealer calls. Turn is like the 4 of clubs. I bet big again and the dealer goes all in. I call and the dealer turns over A-K, with the ace of spades.

    He has four outs. K hits on the river, and his full house beats my straight. $#@!.

    Was short stacked after that and didn't really recover. I eventually go all in with 10-10 and get called with pocket kings.

    I got a nice offer from MLife this week. Direct flight for two to Beau Rivage (Biloxi, MS) + 4 nights stay over 4th of July weekend for $400. I've seen some good poker reviews, so it should be a hellofa trip

    Finally booked for WSOP. I'm too busy in June so going July 6-10. Playing the $1k on the 7th. Got a pretty good deal staying at the Gold Coast.

    I've never been inside that casino. On a recent trip I overheard some people bragging about really good Chinese or Thai food and I think it was inside that casino does that sound right? From looking at the website it says the Chinese place is rated very high.

    I didn't think the casino was that $#@!ty. It isn't going to compete with Aria or Cosmo, but it isn't dingy or smelly like Casino Royale or whatever. They also have some 9/6 Jacks or Better VP machines and it doesn't take much play there to get comp room offers that include weekends, which can come in handy. I'm saving $240 by staying at Gold Coast instead of Rio for the two weekend nights I'm in Vegas.

  • #168
    Yeah I'm staying there the 6th and 7th of June because it was ridiculously cheap compared to the Rio.

    Pretty happy with my deal. 6 nights (June 5-11) @ Aria for $500 including resort fee.

  • #170
    That is a good deal. Since I was going solo with no wife and only two nights, I figured I'd do the Gold Coast for the $ and convenience.

    2016 Poker Degenerates Thread

    Super High Roller Bowl, Day 2, is on CBS Sports. 49 players payed $300k to enter. Top is $5M

    Down to 35 players today. Pretty good broadcast. Some great plays yesterday and a few outstanding ones today already

    They have a stack of "Time" cards they can play if they need more than 40 seconds to act. It seems to flow well. Hope it catches on

    I watched a lot of the WSOP webcasts last year and Nick Shulman was a guest announcer on one of them and he was probably the best they had. He was outstanding.

    Holy $#@!. Wynn has 9 tables of $5-10 going in their new room. That has to be insane action. I may need to rethink my schedule. Was going to save my roll for tourneys, but DAMN that would be tempting

    signed back into my bovada account for the first time since cashing out after football season and found i somehow had $3.00 in my account. i've generally gotten away from the game over the last 4 or 5 years (burnout and marraige) but have been getting the itch again lately. i played their zone poker cash game, its 6 handed and as soon as you fold they re-seat you at a new table so the action is constant. turned my $3.00 into $21.00 playing .02/.05 for a few hours. i've decided to take some of the old chris ferguson bankroll strategy ideas and use those to build a bankroll and see what happens.

    I'm seeing a 4/8 mixed game at Wynn on Bravo. Any idea what all they're playing in that?

    When one 1500-3000 game just isn't enough, go ahead and start a second table...

    Games are just so sick this time of year.

    I stalk those high stakes games at Bellagio it's fun to watch a few hands. Those blinds should bump up soon they get up to about $4,000/$8,000. Last few years it's been a hell of a lineup with Dwan, Ivey, Antonious and Doyle and others like Chan and Sexton. Not uncommon to see a $250,000 pot scooped by Ivey.

    The rake is timed every 30 mins and I heard the food is free for anyone in those games. As in, any restaurant in Bellagio free not just the buffet and Chinese place. Typically you will see Ivey eating a big plate of sashimi.

    $565 Colossus II update:

    Beginning at 4 p.m., the events sixth and final flight drew 4,487, making the final total 21,613 entries, slightly off the record of 22,374 set last year.

    Ultimately, a $10,806,500 prize pool was created that will pay the top 3,245 players, a number the WSOP is hailing as the most for any live poker tournament in history. The top prize will remain the $1 million originally guaranteed.

    Few hours to kill before tourney starts, so I sit to play PH $2/5 game. It's looking pretty loose.

    Few hands into first orbit I get AA in BB. MP opens to $30 and gets two callers. I go $120 and everyone folds. Damn.

    Next hand, EP opens to $15, MP makes it $45, gets a caller and I look down at rockets AGAIN! I try to go $145 but dirty stack contains a $25 so I had actually made it $160. MP calls, others fold.

    Flop K26 rainbow. I would normally check, but want him to think I missed, so I lead out with $125 instead. He makes it $275. I've got $315 behind so I go ahead and shove. He snaps and flips KK. $#@!!

    Turn blank.

    River MOTHER $#@!ING ACE!! Boom quick double up to get the trip started off right

    ETA: PH poker room now has a new home in the middle of the casino floor, directly next to Pleasure Pit, which I'm sure would be a great distraction if it weren't 9 am here

    Sweet start. I hated when they moved location at PH next to Earl of Sandwich and the mall entrance. Sounds like this recent spot is better.
