Big Horn is much closer.



It's only a little closer to my home in north Summerlin. We need a good small dive casino on the west side.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I like that place. I'd go more often if it weren't way on the opposite side of Vegas from where I live.


Heh. I imagine the Longhorn would be pleased to hear of this situation. The Wizard Of Odds thinks highly of the casino but lives too far away to actually sit down and play some serious blackjack there. The best of both worlds.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I don't think I've ever seen anyone play serious BJ there. I'm not even sure they have $100 chips. I don't recall ever seeing one in play.

Good point. With only a three table pit even a green chip player would probably raise eyebrows. Hell, I'm going back to the Boulder Strip next month and will be stopping at the Longhorn because my son in law wants to play $2 Blackjack.

Do they still have the $5 match play coupon on the placemats? It's been awhile since I ate there. Waitress got mad that I wanted two $4.99 chicken steaks instead of one $9.99 one.



Sorry, I didn't notice.

They don't do match play. They have always given a free ace if you ask the cashier at checkout. Limit one per person that dined. Only good for a $5 bet at BJ. So worth about $2.50. Considering some meals cost $5 not a bad deal.

I don't always give "A Friend in Need." I rotate through several of them.

Then I must have the entire set by now (-;

Then by all means, you should deal it to him. Dealing your son-in-law blackjack= +EV, paying him 6:5...priceless.

And just to think how much you can BillRyan actually have in common... down slumming it at the Longhorn.
Hell, you guys probably both shagged the same crack-w**** the same night.

When I lived in Henderson I ate there atleast twice a month for breakfast. It was good. You should pull up the info from the GPS tracker you placed on my vehicle. You'd be surprised at some of the hellholes I frequent.
