re: Poker & Hows the live poker scene where you live?
In nothern Missouri here, no casino's with in an hour away. But plenty of weak cash games for any where from $10 to $100 buy in.
They are all calling staitions though, so if you are not catching cards that night, you just end up about even. I caught quad 9's in my home game about a week ago and that was the only real winning hand I had in about 5 hours of play. Did manage to bluff a few, but it's hard to do when they will call you down with any two cards.
On the positive side, if you can catch a hand now and then, it's pretty easy to make some good money.
I would like to see some pictures of some of everybody's home game set up. I can post some of mine, but it's nothing fancy. I do have a table that seats 10 players though and that is kinda nice when it's full.
