I have been practicing a LOT online and I know how to play. So I decided to go to my local casino to practice with real $. Ugh. The tables here start at $20.00 minimum. $20.00! WTH? It was St.Patrick's Day so it seemed reasonable to drink copious amounts of alcohol. Right? Common sense and all.....yeah right. I actually screwed up a couple of hands. Grrrrr! Man I blew it. I played for about 2 hours and lost $120.00. (I'm a low roller - baller, whatever it's called) I wasn't supposed to lose. lol The dealer was on fire. I'd have a three 8's he'd have three 9's. Jerk. At one point I had four of a kind so then this guy starting playing my Trips and the deal was I got 75%. It actually hit a couple of times but I still managed to walk away a loser. I really like this game but I hope I can find some cheaper buy ins in Vegas. I'm staying a the El Cortez so I think I should be able to.
