No game has the interest, socialibility, and survivability of session than Pai Gow Poker.

Not even EZ Pai Gow?

I picked Hold 'Em (afterall according to Bluff Magazine/ESPN I'm ranked something like 22,000th in the world this year :) ). Would have also picked craps if multiple selections were available. I actually play very very little blackjack, and when I do it's usually Switch.

I like Go. Oh, you wanted casino games? Baccarat and sic bo, mostly. Sometimes pai gow tiles. I don't play much blackjack anymore, either. Baccarat has always been my favourite.

Like several others, I play almost exclusively craps. I'd play Twist'em if it were in a casino though, and I'm not just saying that because it's my game.

I voted for other. Since I have moved to Vegas, I haven't stepped into a casino to gamble. Once college football season starts I have an inspiring tale I will share in a thread, and I will start posting picks that I make.

On a sidenote, since moving here, I have gone to the casinos many times to eat, or have a drink, or see a show. It is amazing to me (I never noticed this while gambling), how pathetic and detatched the people I see playing are. Now I ain't sayin' that I am at the Wynn on a Saturday night watching the excitement at the craps table, just what I notice at the locals places....perhaps more on this later....

Go is awesome. Can't see how to turn that into a casino game though... lets start working on it. (It is a serious gambling game though in Korea, i understand).

Oh, I picked Craps. Basically I play dice or blackjack. I used to play hold'em in the casinos, but not so much any more. Just an occasional tournament.

Why no more hold'em ? I have been learning the game, hoping to start playing soon :)

Don't get me wrong, I love hold'em, and enjoy playing in home games. I just never seem to have the time to myself to get involved in a cash game at the casino for any length of time. When I go to the casino its usually with friends who don't want to play hold'em, or if they do we never end up at the same table anyway. I may be doing it wrong ;)

Voted for craps and poker, didn't put "other" as I don't consider sports-betting a game. Craps has low edge and lets your money last. Poker you can actually use skill.

Really? I've gotta look into that; sounds fascinating. I can't imagine it as a casino game, either -- too long, slow, and victory is not always immediately clear. But maybe a simplified version on a 9x9 board -- hmmmm ......
