    Oh no! Was gonna say that is a nice upgrade up not if the outlets don’t work! Hope you got an even better room. Have fun at Excalibur. Their poker room has charmed me, love it although I can’t put my finger on why exactly.
     
    Entire trip at my favorite hotel!

    Is it because you get to spin the wheel if your aces get cracked? I also like limit

    The first time I ever played live poker in Vegas I got my aces cracked at Excalibur. I got the top prize on the wheel at the time.

    I never got the spin, but they do have a lot of promos going, or they did at the time. I played nlhe there. It was a fun, maniac table.

    I’m explaining to my friend how to use an Uber and it’s hilarious. He doesn’t know how it works. 965AB5FE-1168-4DBE-A472-50B0DA9A3C32.png

    Unless it's changed, terrible, but it doesn't matter.

    My first trip to Vegas I sat down in the Excal tourney. The kid who sat across from me took out a hand ranking chart and kept it on the rail. The rest of the players could probably have used one :)

    By the time we got down to 3 players, the big stack had 4.25 big blinds, I had 4, and short stack had 2. The idea of a chop came up, and short stack said "I'll just take the third place money, if you two want to chop the rest." Just third place. He didn't want even a dollar more. We couldn't say yes fast enough.
