Re: Moron\'s Guide to Building a Bankroll

Hmm, after my Vegas BJ experience - Never (Unless they start a random coin-flip/dice roll to see if the dealer hits when he's at 17 or higher and beating me). I like to have the option to suck out. ...

Pot Odds / Flush Draws

I have a 9300. The lobby and tables have a border on the right and bottom of about 3/4". Resolution is set to 1920x1200.

Any ideas how to get rid of it? Thanks in advance.

Re: Cheap players in LV

Re: IF UB.............
