re: Poker & how long?
I am from Australia
so I am familliar with Manilla (must use 2 hole cards & has 32 card deck - 7s up- also has beeting on every community card which are turned over one at a time) I used to play about 10 years ago.
So I am on vacation in Vegas one year ago and come accross the card room in the Sands.
Funny thing is, it takes me 2 hours to work out that I am not playin Manilla.
It takes me another 6 hours to lose the $100 I started with and the same amount of time to polish off 8 Miller Originals.
I understand the game a bit better now and no longer don't drink and play anymore.
Though maybe I should - it would hel me with all of the bad beats!
