    Poker?
    Do any of you ABW'ers play poker online? Hope this isn't an inappropriate thread.

    I used to play alot, but have taken a break for a long time now. Been working too much lately, and am thinking about getting back into it a little bit here and there.

    Is there some secret ABW poker night out there? I'm curious as to how a group of members playing poker together might turn out.

    Poker is best played in Vegas in my opinion.

    well, yeah, no doubt about that. Unfortunately, some of us wee little folk live about as far away from a real casino as can be.

    Whenever I go visit family in Mississippi, Tunica is always one of the places I make plans to stop at..

    Tunica is a huge casino area in Mississippi.. That side of Mississippi used to be barren, but it's grown into a huge gathering place now. Pretty much a self contained fun zone. http://www.tunicamiss.org/

    Mind you, I'm sure it's nothing to compare with Vegas, but split between Tunica and Atlantic City, well, it can keep you somewhat busy..

    As you can tell, I don't visit Mississippi very often.

    I live in Vegas but I play a bunch online. Online poker offers you lower limits, potentially huge payouts, reward programs, and a WHOLE LOT more fish to take the easy money from!

    I played the 7pm NL tournament at the Sahara last night. If you ever get back to Vegas I highly suggest it. $42 buy in, optional $20 add on in the first hour. They play every night at 7 and 11pm as well as mornings at 11am.

    I've found that playing online (I play around 200-300 hands or 2-3 tourneys per night) allows you to really concentrate on your knowledge of the cards, board reading, pot odds, implied odds, etc. and not get wrapped up so much in the mind game. The mind game is such a huge 'x' factor that online has proven a great way to maintain solid fundamentals, IMHO.

    Funny, when I lived in Vegas, I hardly ever gambled. Irony no doubt.

    When I was a tourist I used to play blackjack and craps a LOT. Haven't won since.

    Poker is more of a skill game as there is no inherent house edge, and I'm finding out that I am better than most, at least at current limits!

    It's not the same online versus with friends on a Saturday night. I've only played on Yahoo so it might be more fun elsewhere.

    It's definitely different on the free sites, but the social element just isn't there online (obviously).

    No, definitely not. I was speaking more in terms of places like PartyPoker, etc.. I can't play free poker, no incentive makes for a boring game..

    And yeah, if I had a poker room nearby here, I'd be there on a regular basis. I unfortunately live in a very conservative state.

    We have a poker room at the dog track where I live. I play in a tournament there once a month.
    We were in Memphis recently and went to the Sam's Town casino in Tunica. I beat them for $150 in less than an hour playing video poker and we left with their money and went and had a nice dinner.

    My weakness is Yahoo pool. I would be more up for a Yahoo pool tournament.

    I play for free at partypoker.com. It's fast paced, I've gotten quite good at calculating pot odds on the fly with the speed. I think I can translate that to a real game.

    But with online poker, I have no incentive to train myself to hide my "tells". I often find myself drumming on the desk or muttering out loud, "ha, there's that club to fill out my flush. I'm gonna reel you in slowly. check, beyotch!"

    Funny thing about Nebraska: if a game of chance has a prize of value (cash, gift certificate, free merchandise), there cannot be an entry fee. If there is a monetary consideration with a game of chance and a prize of value, it's gambling, which is illegal.

    (What about Keno? Nevermind...)

    So bars have tournaments with no entry fee and a $50 prize. Instead of an empty bar on a Tuesday, they have 40 or so people buying 2-3 glasses of beer over a 3 hour period at $3 a draw.

    LOL I had that same problem! I'm very fidgety when I play online. If you have interest in playing more live games, pick up Mike Caros "Book of Tells" and read it and memorize a few tells. Then fidget all you want, but make sure the tells are in conflict of one another (ie, if you've missed a hand, bet using a very large motion, then lean back in your chair but stare at your opponent). Practice these tells while you are playing online. Even though noone is there to see you it's good to go through the motions. It will confuse the crap out of your opponent once you come out to visit us here in Vegas.

    Well, I'm up for it. Any other takers? I'm guessing we could all play low-limit, nothing fancy, like $1-2, or something close...

    Few more people then we can decide the next part - where to play...

    I play online @PokersStars.***. Great place to practice and brush up skills, its all play money and cost nothing to join. When in Vegas, I've played at the Sahara a few times. Went back to Vegas last month and stayed off strip at GVR, stuck with blackjack and was amazed at how many lousy blackjack players were there. Bunch of college kids who I guess had their own system of why you should hit on 16 with the dealer showing 6.
