So i was thinking to share with you guys my first casino experience ...
Last week i decided to go to make a casino card membership and buy in to the smallest tournament there ( 6 EURO buy in ) i make the card and surprise they gave me first registration for free plus 5 eur on the card for drinks plus 2 eur for slots (HAHA i gues casino hospitality ) well all good i get to the table, game starts and after fe folds i play my forst hand and won it too it felt awesome to get those chips from the pot.. few hands more and everyone started bein so aggresive and all ins everywhere and re buy after re buy from those old rich guys ...pretty surprised about that but i didnt see there was written very little unlimited re buys HAHA thats terrbile i expected everyone to be out when chips finished and they kept re buying all the time ...i caught the first brake without re buying at all so pretty happy about that .....after the brae i had 5000 chips from 1000 first buy and everyone stated buying some addon i was like wtf i struggle here to get 5000 chips and they are buying with 20 euros 8000 ...i guess i should have watched the structure type before ...overall great feelings and great experience i had something to learn from it and also happy with the place 21 from 70 with 10 places paid !!!
Next time gonna go a bigger tournament with only 1 re buy possible for first 90 min cause that fits better to te way i play ...!!
Who wants can give me some tips for next time so i wont get surprised in a bad way again ...

Yeah that happens a lot with small tournaments run be casinos. I played a $40 rebuy and $60 freeze out here in Canada. They were weekly tournaments I found at a casino to play while I was going to school to get my electrical ticket. Anyway found the same thing turns out the $40 turbo was a freeze out and the I asked about the $60 tournament that was in 2 days and they said it was a re-entry. I go to play it and it's actually a rebuy, not a big deal but when I paid my re-entry hoping for a better table draw they tell me I just go back to the same seat. The only advice I can give is to find the floor person that runs the tournaments and ask a lot of questions about the tournaments, even questions that you think don't need asking. Like what is there definition of re-entry. Hope this helps
