First Casino trip!
So today me and a buddy decided to go fishing. We get out there around 10:30 am and it is windy as all hell and started to drizzle a bit. Couldn't get much going. I say, hey you know there's a casino like 25 mins from here right? No interest, he's broke blah blah. So we go to a little pond I know of. We're there for about 45 mins and I actually managed two small bass. Meh, still crappy conditions. So again, Hey you know we can still run to the casino lol. And finally he agrees and said he'll just play the slots
So we get to the casino around 4 and I decided to put 200 down on 200NL. Very nervous at this point. Didn't know where to go, who to speak to and so on. Finally, I get it all figured out. I sit down at a brand new table. Which I preferred since it wasn't like they all had hands on each other and im just the new guy. So about 6 hands in, I get AJs in MP. I come in for a raise of $12 seeing as 6x bb was standard in the first few hands that got raised. I get one caller in LP and the clop comes KQx. I check, he checks. Turn brings a T. I bet $12 (pot is $27). He folds.
Then we fast forward for quite a bit due to no cards whatsoever. So im in HJ with 55 and 2 limpers ahead of me. I make it $16. I get 2 callers. Flop comes K75. Check to me. I bet $10 (kinda small but one of the 2 callers is hyper aggro and splashes a lot of pots, not many showdowns. He just seems very bluffy) fold from LP and he raises to $35. As much as I felt good about my hand, I didn't wanna get sucked out on. So I raise it to $85. He tanks for a minute, all the while I'm staring dead at him (though my heart was pounding lol). He eventually says "Ya know I got a real big hand here". I shrugged. He eventually lays it down. Nice little pot.
Very next hand I get Ac5c and decide I'll come in as it was limped to me (3 limpers). Every other hand I raised but decided ahh hell i'll call. Bad move I guess . Flop comes all clubs. Checks to me and I check, LP checks. Turn comes no scare card. Checks to me, I bet out $10 and get all folds . Maybe I should've just opened for a raise. And really that was about the extent of my trip because my friend said he busted at roulette
lol. Total was $250 after about 2 hours.
Still, it felt really awesome to sit down at a casino table for once. I've been to a few home games but that's about it so far. Can't wait to go back! Probably next weekend im off weeks from now!
Edit: Wanted to take home a chip, so took home a $1 lol
