re: Poker & Poker houses vs Casinos
i DO NOT like poker houses one bit! i'll still never forgive the one i played at a few times for treating the $2,000 chip i put down as a raise as a $50 CALL because i didn't say raise, letting the rag player that should have folded turn a gutshot and moreso because the last time i went there and we were drawing cards for seating, i noticed the freakin' cards were MARKED! i was also surprised by just how easy it was to see the marks even though i'm an artist with an eye for detail.
i'd trust a casino long before some local dive that isn't under the jurisdiction of a gaming commission.
