I'm still on the fence about attending, but leaning towards coming. I'll know for sure later this week. In the meantime, I'll add my 2¢...


Personally, I'd be happy to play poker, but would advise against it. Poker is player vs player. As such, I don't like to play with friends at the table, in a casino poker room. If I go with friends, we tend to sit at different tables. Home games are a different story, primarily because it's just friends, and for typically lower stakes. On the other hand, if it was a private tournament, I'd be more inclined to prefer it.

Craps, on the other hand, is more social, more conducive to conversation. And less adversarial, even if some players are on the don'ts. Of course, it can burn thru a bankroll quickly.

Based upon the fun we had at the G2E group gambling at the Pai Gow Tiles table with Mike there to prevent us from screwing up, that's what I'd suggest. Like Pai Gow Poker, Tiles tends to have a lot of pushes, with a slow pace.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

I've never played tiles, and have always wanted to try it. If we had people who knew BS for it I'd certainly play along.

Really, I hope most of us are up for a few types of gaming... This way not everyone has to do things they don't want, but at some point we'll play something everyone has wanted to play.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

No one voted for Blackjack?
Are you all banned from all BJ tables?
Scared to have every player at the table ramping up with the count simultaneously?

You know, you don't have to count every session, you could just play for fun ;-)

You might not be an ap iffff...... You sit at the poker table with axel

Eh, I'll take that bet =P.

I think I originally didn't vote poker due to my exorbit amount of experience with the game and not wanting to have an advantage over members, but if others are stating they want to play, of course I'd play lol... To balance the game out a bit more one of the people I'm bringing would also play, and he's not very experienced at poker?

Who says we have to stick to one game?? We could do a 1 table poker tournament (sit-n-go) and then after go play craps?

NO sit-n-go. Cash game, at least 1-2 NL. You can sit n go after you lose your cash.

I prefer craps - because I can control the dice and get an advantage. Plus, I don't know how to play poker.



Just play it like go fish and you'll be just fine.

Checked the link for the 'Summerlin'. How many days do I get to complete it, it didn't say? Aren't you supposed to be in Mexico now?

I came home early due to getting sick. The full story to come.

Hope you're not too tired when you join the Spring Fling.

It's looking better and better that I'll be there. :)

Sounds like a fun idea but I am pretty sure my heart would sadly give out 10 minutes into the tour.
