Decided to get back into Low Stakes Live No Limit at the Casinos again at the beginning of April. I usually play one or two nights a week at KS Star, Mulvane or whatever casino I'm near at the time.

Cliffs:
Been playing poker a lot more recently. Been doing pretty good. Played a really, really, bad last night and lost a big pot.


Brag: Ran up $5,300 profits (including dealer tips, booze, food, etc.) in about 90 hours mostly playing 1/3 nl wit a little 1/2 when I was in Vegas. Started w/ initial $450.

Beat:
Lost biggest hand of the year (1/3) after I raise $25 from button pre w/ KTo over 4 limpers in straddled pot. 4 players see flop, including drunken gambooler old guy who has been running hot. We both have around $900 effective stacks. Flop ($105ish) comes 4cKh9c. Checks to villain in CO who bets $50. I see this as weak and either some 9x, TPWK hand, or flush draw. Instead of raising, I go passive and just call hoping jam villain's turn bet. All others fold.

Turn ($205) brings 10d, giving me two pair and completing a straight draw, which I'm not too worried about. Villain, instead of continuing smallish as he had done leads for $200. I'd planned on raising, but bigger bet through me for a loop. Range now looks more like two pairs, TPTK, Pair+draws, but includes sets, a miracle straight and frusterated club draw. With added showdown equity I elect again to just call rather than jam like originally planned.  :nono: 

River ($605) is just a terribad card for me. Jc. Straights and flushes abound and counterfits my two-pair against KJ, but convince myself there are still many hands in this villain's rainge that I can beat, including turning pairs+busted draws into bluffs, worse two pairs, etc. Villain has gotten increasingly drunk in the last 45 minutes or so. He looks at me and slurs "you gotta pair?" I  do this :dunno:. He mutters something under his breath then says "I'm just going all in." It's like $625. Because (wrongly) of what I've described earlier I convince myself to call. Terribly played the entire way by me.

Variance:
Villain hangs his head and slams cards on the table face up. Guy next to him says "two clubs." Villain looks up, looks at cards and rakes pot. I muck. He had 82cc. 

Villain staggers out 15 minutes later with all my chips.

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

yeah those night will happen, for most that can be discouraging. the right way to approach it is just keep going, your luck will turn around eventually

free bet blackjack?

They will spot you your double down on any splits and 8/9/10 double downs....downside is if the dealer gets 22, it's a push.  There is a side bet to protect against that.

is the 22 a push on every hand or just when you double/split?

about every 2 years I get invited to some, like, office or neighborhood poker guys group that meets once a week and everyone brings a six pack or whatever and the guys just apparently play poker. my response every single time is, "I literally cannot think of anything I would rather do less than that".

Pretty much

yup.

How does everyone feel about:

Dodgers -200
Nats -110
Rays -185
Twins +120

And then one parlay with all of them.

Thoughts??

I am newly obsessed with gambling. Went to the casino this week, won $375. Played poker at my weekly game, won $150. Won like maybe $20 on big time sports betting.

Wow, black jack. What a fantastic game. Knew the concept as a kid, but just started playing for money. Learning how to read the dealer's hand, read the table, etc. has been my jam. Can't wait to go back, you guys.

I am an excellent blackjack player. Maybe the best? Want my number one tip? Stay in the game. Hitting 14+ is for suckers.

The only stuff I know about poker I learned from Rounders.  So basically don't "catch a hanger", and also don't eat Oreos at the table.  But do check all the time because it somehow ends up tricking them into losing at the end.

I don't really consider poker gambling. I don't really do any wagering of any other kind. I've made probably 20-30 sports bets in my life.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.
