went gambling this weekend

We have casinos here in Oklahoma now, not sure why we drove all the way to Shreveport. The wife had all her family invite us so what the hell.

Never been much into that scene, must say I had a good time, free drinks made it better. Played for 2 evenings and I walked away 8 dollars richer, so i can't bitch too much, wife lost 60 bucks I think. Brother inlaw (not the gay one) lost 500 or so, and they were going back at it tonight.............


1 dollar slots were my favorite, not much into the card thing. The movie "hangover" made the experience much better lol.

In-laws go to the casinos over by Omaha couple times a year. FIL plays slot machines like no one I've ever seen, he usually walks out with a Bennie after a night or two. Just luck I suppose, but he does it all of the time. I don't do much in casinos either, but I'd rather take my chances on Black Jack or Craps.

I really like playing Texas Hold-em online. But the game is just complicated enough that I doubt I could play it live in a casino without getting a brain fart. Playing live I would probably have a hard time keeping track of the blinds & betting order as the hands unfolded. Online the system reminds you it's your turn to act & the min/max you can bet each hand.

In a casino I would probably have to stick to something easier to keep track of like Black Jack or some other card game where everyone anties instead of rotating small/big blinds.
