Buyins are 200-2k, but this is the first time I've seen an entire table short buy

I mean, good grief we're paying $14/hr to sit in this game lol

I got called for a PLO game. 4 handed. One guy had $13, another $110, and the last had $180. Buy ins are $200-1k. I'm like nope I'll play holdem tonight.

In for $500, out for $1,300. Mostly attributed to spots where I flopped top two pair and held against players drawing all-in on the flop. Sciatica is still bothering me off and on, but at least it's been bearable lately. Still taking breaks to walk and stretch the ol' legs, plus going to the gym multiple times per week.

Oh, forgot to share this troll video I made. So TGT (where the Cubans cheated) has tournaments where the winner gets a TGT Tumbler, lol.

They have different colored ones, and the kid in this video is a local reg on the tournament scene. Reggie Bautista is another local tourney reg that has been killing it lately, I mention him in the clip, but had fun trolling Jeremy in this one

Edit: this was filmed at Tampa Hard Rock

Dude, I don't see the humor. I took first place out of a field of 32 at Hollywood slots.

Been an up, down, up session

Was up a couple hundred, then down $150 after flopping top set with straight blocker, but he got there, then set over set

Managed to turn it around so far

Managed to cash out +$395 on the session. A solid day, nothing amazing but I wouldn't complain if I could make $400/day everyday I played. Unfortunately some of the fish busted and didn't rebuy, and were replaced by more competent players. With the dynamics of the table changed and not really wanting to get stuck on a long wait list for other limits I opted to book the win and take it home.

Had $25 in free play from the casino as well, popped it into a Deuces Wild Video Poker machine and managed to keep $17 of it.

Flopped middle pair and gutshot broadway draw on a rainbow KJ8 flop with AJT2 from the button 4-ways

They check to me, I bet 30, SB calls

Turn a 3, we both check

River the 9, he checks, I bet 60

He thinks for a long time, eventually tosses in a 100 chip to call

I flip up my hand and he insta-mucks because it looks like I have a straight

He realizes after the cards hit the muck he had the best hand, but accepts his mistake and I win a small pot

Always turn your hand up, or you may fold the winner

Maybe he is there to chew bubblegum.

What a shitshow the tampa rock has become

Ask to be put on transfer list, floor guy tells me if I don't have a high hand he can't help me, I have to go to the front

One guy at front overwhelmed working alone, takes them 30 minutes just to clean an open seat, good luck finding a brush to fill the dealers well, etc, c'mon man, get your shit together
