    I love poker, but have yet to really play. I like tournaments so I will try to get in one or two for around $60 this trip and try to sit at a 1-2NL for $200. I really enjoy craps and usually play a $5 table with a $150 buy in. Also enjoy blackjack, either a $5 table with $50 or a $10 table with $100. My girlfriend loves $.01 slots so I will put a $20 in them every now and then with her.

    Poker, up to $100 tournament buy in
    Craps, $10 limits with $30-$40 action
    Blackjack, $15 limits
    Video Poker, $1x5

    I will seek lower limits when available but the above amounts are the high end of my comfort level. Pressing is another story, I've pressed craps bets as high as $750 before but only with money earned on that roll (and boy was it a hot roll!)

    Craps. usually $10 table, start with $62-$74 in action between the line and place bets. Prefer a $5 table to ride out cold dice but those aren't always available.

    BJ - $10

    That's all I play except for some VP when I just want to have a drink and relax.

    I used to play poker but no longer.

    Playing blackjack at $5/hand is what I prefer. I also enjoy Jacks or Better at quarter level($1.25/spin).

    I'll venture beyond the above amounts from time to time but not often.

    Mostly video poker.

    I am a tightass though. If the game is < 99%, I usually just play 1 line of nickels (5 coins plus some bonus bets like STP). Or just one quarter if i'm trying to abuse comp drinks at the bar. If it's > 99%, I'm willing to play one line of quarters.

    Slots: not a lot of them, but if I do pennies ranging from 15 cents to 50 cents.

    Live poker: 3/6 or 4/8 limit "mix games" tough to find.

    I don't play much else, but I'd I did play BJ or craps, I would be a min bettor mostly.

    I play 3 games. I play $4-$8 limit hold 'em, but tried my first $1-$2 NL game in October and want to switch to that. I play quarter VP, mostly JoB and mostly bartop. I also play $5 or $10 BJ. A few years ago I did a little card counting but I don't really practice anymore so I just play basic strategy.

    I would like to play some craps. I played a couple of times and thought it was a lot of fun!

    My favorite game is full-pay multi-line (3-play or 5-play) Video Poker for quarters, or if I play 10-line VP at the Rampart, it's nickels (9/6 JOB, 8/5 Bonus, 16/10 DW).

    I also play some occasional $5 blackjack, and a little roulette (with matchplays).

    Mostly $10 BJ and 1/2 NL hold 'em. I like low limit 7 card stud when I can find it. I like craps but usually only play it when I can find it for less then $5, prefer $2 or $3.

    $5 let it ride a few times a trip.

    I'll hit and run the $1 slots. Especially wheel of fortune, play until I get to spin the wheel or blow through my buy in.

    A little sports here and there..... bets range from $10 to $50.

    Slots $1-$5 per spin

    It all depends how I am running,where in the trip I am, I normally come for 1 week min from the UK, so I tend to take it easy the 1st few days.

    Blackjack (counting): $25-$200 or $10-$125 at a $10 table. 2-decks if I can find it, but I don't mind shoe games with decent rules. Never 6:5.

    Ultimate Texas Hold'em: $25 Ante + $25 Blind, $15 trips. This is the new addiction.

    Slots:
    Penny Machines: $0.60 - $1.80 a spin, if the game/bonus is fun.
    $1 machines: $3 a spin, on three reelers (things like Double Gold, Triple Strike, sometimes 5 reels).
    $5 machine: $10 a spin to rack up tier points to get Diamond level at CET.

    Pai Gow Poker: $60 bet, $5 Fortune bonus.

    Craps: $5 table, 3x4x5x odds and 3 come bets working all the time with odds.
    Or 3 don't come bets, with 2x odds across.

    Mississippi Stud: from $5 to $25 if I'm feeling rich. Never the 3-card poker side bet.

    I mostly play blackjack, downtown or Gold Coast...2-deck. My base-bet is $10, and I'll typically spread up to $40 (although my count is not usually perfect). I prefer a $5 table for those numerous times when the deck is negative, but a $10 table is fine.
    When I'm up a bit, I usually do a session or two at the $25 tables, only spreading to $75.

    Like Wade, my new 'love' is UTH. I like to play $10-$10-$5, but if I'm down a lot, I'll go to $5-$5-$5.

    When I play craps, it's only at $5 tables...I go with a $5 line, double odds, place the 6/8 for $12 each (or sub a 5 or 9 for $10 when the point is 6 or 8).
    I 'same-bet-press-same-bet-press' on my place bets, until they go down.

    On those rare occasions when I play 3-card, it's just the $5-$5-$5 play, never buying in for more than $100.

    That's it...no slots, no VP, no roulette, no bacc, no pai-gow. I used to play keno during meals, but when they got rid of keno-girls (yum!), I stopped.

    Blackjack - Green Chip, spread up to black level.

    Video Poker - Anywhere from single line quarter to five line dollar or three line 2 dollars. Care more about Full Pay machines (9/6 JOB, 10/7 DB or FPDW) vs. denominations.

    Live Poker - Have shifted to tournaments as they attract a lot of tourists in Vegas. Otherwise limit 3/6 - 6/12. Would like to play stud, the game I first played in Vegas, but it is no longer offered.

    Sigma Derby - For giggles.

    I gave up poorer odds games such as pai gow, sports gambling and horse racing.

    Mostly blackjack, although I prefer craps. It just always seems easier to find a few empty blackjack spots as opposed to craps.

    Usually 10-15 bucks. I get nervous it gets up to the green chips.

    Craps is my game of choice. I seek out $5.00 tables and start off with 5 on the passline, double odds, and 26 or 27 across. If things are going my way I go to 10 on the passline, double odds, and 54 or 52 across. If the shooter or myself is still hot then it's balls to the walls time and the skies the limit!:beer:

    If there's a shitload of point then 7 outs I will switch to 5 on the pass, then 5 on the come after point is set. This is to survive the point then 7 outs. After a couple of rolls I will go 22 inside and take double odds.

    If I'm losing my ass I'll stop and play nickel DDB VP. I'll slow play, enjoy my beers, and keep a watchful eye on the craps table for potential heaters and jump in if it looks like there's a trend starting. :thumbsup::beer:
