Lately, when I'm actually plugging away at it, 1-line 2/5$ Aces and Faces. If I'm killing time, trying to meet a minimum for promos, etc. I play something with a lot of lines at a low minimum. (I'm rather fond of that 100-line 1c DW unit right by Metro Pizza at Ellis Island. On my last three trips to get pizza, I got 222 in my staring hand within the first 20 hands or so.)

I was half elated and literally facepalming when I got this one today because I was trying to decide exactly what I wanted to play-- some flavor of Bonus or White Hot Aces (I prefer Aces and Faces, and the latter is... kind of close...ish). That, and since I was just killing time waiting for somebody, I was only playing dimes instead of something larger. (Bonus points: Look at how many credits I have remaining.)

Nice hand! And, more importantly, you didn't hold all 5. Can't stand that!

Besides my -EV gambling, what was the biggest risk by far that I took here?

I'm not sure I understand the question, but I assume you took cash and thought that was risky. Again, I'm not sure, perhaps you thought it was risky that you might not hold all five cards?

You took a picture before making the hold. Always make the hold first.

The other day I almost dropped my phone in the toilet with a big poop in there.
