    Default The Venetian

    Played for six hours at the Venetian down on the strip today. The suckouts were unbelievable!!!!! Even worse than Stars ... lol.

    Does this qualify as a whine? You be the judge

    I'm playing at The Venetian this week - hopefully you took all my bad beats for me!

    Yeah, I don't trust those live cardrooms. You always get big pairs head to head and loads of draws hitting on the river. It MUST be fixed :)
    There are only three ways to play pocket Jacks; they are all wrong.

    Lol ... that's what it began to feel like. I have not been running well on the internet lately and decided I needed to get back to live play. Oh, well maybe I can take up knitting or something else less harmful to my bankroll.

    Patrick ... I certainly tried but I bet there are still a few out there so be careful. The tournie they ran yesterday was packed with a prize pool of $103K. Good luck and let us know how you make out.

    One day I'd love to play a real-money live tournament in Vegas. From what I have heard all the ones with a decent structure are fairly pricey though, but then again as a guy that likes turbos I could see myself getting into a lower-end one and seeing how I do.
    I do a new thing now. Hidden Content

    In one tournament I played in at Caesars, there were two hands within 5 minutes of each other at my table where 4 players were all-in

    The first had KK, QQ, JJ and 99 (the 99 won)

    The second had AA, KK, QQ and AK (the AA held)

    That absolutely proves that live poker in Las Vegas is fixed. I knew Sparrow was right!

    Nothing but internet for me from now on!
