It's because they're asian, not because they're betting huge amounts of money?



The pit turns a blind eye to Asian players in bac. Its
a fact, not speculation. Money bet has nothing to
do with it. They even admitted it to me. They can't
afford to piss them off because they all know each
other and if they boycott a casino, it costs big money.

Four Winds, for instance, opened in 2007. They ticked
off a couple of the bussed in Chicago Asians, and they
all disappeared for about 4 months in late 2007. When
they finally came back, they could do almost anyhing
they liked and get away with. If you complain, the
pit justs shrugs its shoulders.

At a volunteer fire dept game night, I gave a tip. The dealer said we cannot accept tips but we can accept tokes. I said you can put the tip in the tip in the tip box or return my toke. I never got the chip back.

If you play poker often, you will frequently find Asians not talking English. Often while one still has a hand !

They all know each other....just like all those blacks on the subway who call each other "bro"?

Obviously you need to form a posse of crotchety upper-middle aged white guys & play some serious bac! :-)

Far better than that. They play together all the
time, ride the same busses from Chicago, live
in the same neighborhoods. When they boycotted
Four Winds the casino had a cow. They tried
everything to get them back. It was pretty funny.
Its almost like a players union.

I am going with Bob on this one. I was one of the few non-Asians who played poker in the PAN club in Denver. They should have kept it all Asian though. This was prior to legal gambling in 1990. And the law was you could gamble if everyone had a " social relationship" The white undercover cop who busted them did not !

I was also trapped in Blackhawk one snowy night. Everyone else was Asian. 8 poker players , 2 dealers, and a floor man. Learned a lot about the common bond they had, how difficult they had immigrating or bring their families to the USA. Even found out the best immigration lawyer in Denver.
I remember it because an argument was going on about it. It was settled when they realized it was the same lawyer practicing under both an Asian and a Chinese name.

I'm not sure what kind of peeve this would go under, but on the usual endless loop of Top 40 "songs" and occasional poppy oldies, I keep hearing a Bob Dylan song that stuck out like a sore thumb. I knew I knew it, knew I'd heard it a thousand times, and I knew it had to be from the sixties or early seventies, since he didn't have the gravelly voice he's had for the past decade or so and not much in between gets played. It's jarring every time it comes on, from just seeming so insanely out of place on a casino speaker, and only just now did I Google what lyrics I could remember and realize what it was doing there.

Even if you don't already know what I'm talking about firsthand, you've probably guessed which song it is by now.

"Positively 4th Street."

Groooannnnn...
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Any televised sporting event that Tim McCarver is announcing.

He talks about food, broadway plays, opera, books, music, anything and everything and tries to tie into the game I am watching.

I say watching because when he is the announcer, I put the game on mute!

I have some doubts about this however I do acknowledge that orientals often shop in large numbered organized groups and that in the Orient, whales are not independent, they are allied with Whale-Minder organizations who sell the whale's play to the casinos.

It may simply be that the few times a casino sends in a ringer who has a smattering of Chinese, he reports the banter as being normal social chit chat and therefore the casinos do not want to be sticklers for enforcing the rules of English Only.
