Atlantic City trip (long)
ok so we got there about 4pm Monday afternoon and headed straight to the roulette
table at the Taj. Let me start off and saying Chuck is a amazing roulette player, for some reason he hits alot. Ok so we get to the table and I buy $50 in chips and Chuck buys $100. I spread my $10 and chuck spreads about $40 or so, the ball is going round and round and Chuck throws $10 on 8 because there is nothing on it for the hell of it and guess what.....BOOOOM 8 hits for +$320 or so for him. I'm like no freaking way, we play a couple more spins and he throws $20 on some other number and I follow suit and throw $3 on his number and guess what he hits again for +$640, he left up like $900 and I went up $50 or so.
enough of all that junk lets get to poker, we started off sitting at 3/6 limit. I got AA two times in like 1st hour or so and they held up both times. Then my big hands started to get cracked over and over and I was down about $50 which made me even for day so far. I was getting bored as hell at that game so had Chuck see if there were any 1/2 NL tables open and there was right next to it. Well we went and sat at that table and there was this dude with like over 1 grand at the table. At a $300 max buy-in that is amazing. I just folded and folded got my stack down to about $120 or so and got JJ. Dude raised me like $20 and I came back over the top to about $45 and he called. Before flop came down I announced I was all in for my last $39 at the table. He called pre-flop and showed AQ. Board didnt help him and I doubled up. I was now about even again and Chuck and I played a little bit more roulette and joined a $80 sit and go.
It payed out top 2 spots and I went out like 5th, Chuck took 3rd and guys payed him $80 anyway to be nice. The 2 players that got 1st and 2nd were horrible players. When they were done I told Chuck lets go play some 1/2 again, we sat at this table and away we went again. I bought in for $200 and Chuck for about $300. Things went normal for about a couple hours and I just maintained my stack UNTIL.
I had QQ and made standard raise to $25, yes that is a standard raise in a 1/2 game live. whoever said 5x is standard I don't know but in these games raises were normally $15-$25 preflop. Well guy in late position called me and then another guy made it $100 preflop. So I mucked my QQ and other guy folded and I told guy I just mucked QQ and he was like NO YOU DIDN'T. I was like yes I did and he was like I had KK. I tend to believe him. Then I went on a rush getting AA,AK back to back and made about $100 on those hands. So at this point I was up to about $300.
Now here is the big hand of the night, had 77 which is my lucky hand, I have made alot of money of 77 and I almost always run it. Guy made normal like $15-$20 raise preflop so I call, flop comes down J75, bingo right? The board was safe so I went ahead and checked it. Guy made a normal like $45 bet an I re-raised another like $50 or so and he pushed all in? Now JJ worried me but I don't see how I could possibly fold this. I called and said " you got JJ?" and he said no and I said then I got you. He said he has 55, turn and river no help for him and my stack goes to about $600. After that I went up and down between $600-$700 and cashed out around $690. Chuck had terrible poker day but thanks to roulette he came up about $900 and I came up almost $500.
All in all a great day for both of us and my reads were amazing, I was calling out peoples hands left and right and had people actually asking me if they played their hand right or if they should of pushed or not. I was able to single out the weak players and stack the bad players. Both players that won that sit and go with Chuck played with us and I took like over $100 from one of them. I will be going back in couple weeks with my wife and unfortantly I will have to play some limit with her but im willing to for her.
