Rake Rant

Went to Lucky Chances casino tonight for the first time in about a month. what a bummer. the time charge for the 20-40 game is now $18/hour. It used to be $14/hour but now they have a jackpot and some of the extra $4 goes to the jackpot. Puke, puke, puke. no more Lucky Chances for me.

I think the Commerce has a comparable time charge but at least you get free food that is good. The Commerce is also the poker capital of the world so I guess they should be able to cash in a bit on their brand equity, so to speak. Lucky Chances has expensive food that will make you sick and it's definitely not the poker capital of the world. poker players unite. boycott lucky chances. or whatever.

$18/hour? That is about how much some day-time Vegas players put into a pot of a 20/40 game not counting their blinds!

Re: Rake Rant

Here's how sick I am when it comes to collection. I went to LC's twice on Friday, both times figuring to maybe play some 20-40 for at most one or two collections, just because I haven't been there much lately. A social stop.

The big no-limit game was going. I'm hyper selective about that game. Two key players were in the game, and I was still thinking, do I really want to risk losing a few dimes on one pot right before going to Vegas? I'm thinking emotional risk just as much as financial. Shouldn't I just stay in the nice and cozy $20-40 today?

The collection for the 20-40 is now $9/half hour. For the no-limit, which has no jackpot involvement, it is still $7. That was the deciding factor, the $2 per half hour. Both trips, I got in the no-limit game ...

... and ...

Chaching!! Hey babe! I can buy the pizza!

(My first significant pot I had JJ vs 10-10. Five limpers preflop. Flop comes 10-6-6. I got horrendously outplayed and faked out. I bet $100 into the $100 pot. He raised $200. Dandy play, given our history. I misread him completely and shoved the rest of my $1300. He called and showed his flopped full. I good-naturedly said, "I've got outs!"

Bam, here comes the jack, right on the turn. Everybody sucks out. That's the game we play.)

It's all true. The prior events took place on Wednesday.

Nice catch. I hope you bring that extra dough to Vegas.

Good Luck

I had never thought about that

That Angelo has a whole raft of Pete Townshend quotes all about him. Wow.

Maybe I'll prepend "Tommy" to my name too - that would be really... oh wait...
