Long Day

After spending 12 hours at the casino on Saturday I was exhausted. I drove the truck home watching the road for ice and when I made it I was not going out again. Home sweet Home.

It was another typical ordinary day. Arrive at 9AM and get the tables set up for the tournament that starts at 10AM. After that is finished we quickly got the tables ready again for the Noon tournament. We finished this one at about 3PM just in time to get the next one started.

We were able to finish this tournament around 5:30 and at that point I was off the clock and getting myself ready to sit down at the Omaha table to learn a new game. I have tried to learn this game in the past but now we have a dealer who has worked at Foxwoods and has dealt this game. She is very knowledgable. She gave us the basics but no strategies.

When 6:15 rolled around it was time to get a game going to see if we learned anything and also to get our feet wet. They started a $2-$4 Limit game and we have seven players. Two people sat down at the table with rather large stacks and they hadn't been at the learning table. We were hoping for a friendly game and being able to ask some questions after the hand played out.

The two individuals that sat down with large stacks immediately started bullying the table. The older lady next to me was so nervous with what was happening she got up and left. It wasn't too long after that I was getting frustrated watching these two players just raising and bullying the table and seeing their chip stacks rise. I thought it was going to be a fun table not just giving our money to these two guys.

I finally got up and another person followed. The game died a little after that. I ended up going over to the $2-$10 Spread game and figured I would have the opportunity to earn some of my money back I just gave away. I sat at the table for a couple of hours and yes I did go away from the table in the positive. Thank goodness for a game I understand. I will try to learn Omaha but will pick my games by who I see at the table.

Today is another day and will start the process all over again. We don't have the 10AM tournament on Sundays and will start off with the Noon tournament. There is a 3PM Player of the Week tournament that is a good one to play due to the added money. After that a day off on Monday. I would like to play my usual Monday night but we will see if that happens or not.

Have a fun day......
