Just got back from my bi-annual trip back home to the Midwest, USA. I live in Europe where the poker craze is still in its infancy.
3 years ago, I came back to find a racehorse track had been built in my hometown!
2 years ago, I found that they had added slot machines!
Last year, they had roulette
tables and blackjack
And lo and behold this year, ring games of NLHE!
The laws in me ex-state only allow video gaming, so the poker games
all consist of people sitting around a table with their own video monitor - kinda a live/online hybrid. The tables were all $1/$2 with buy-ins from $100-$300.
I had only brought 50 bucks with me as a precaution, but next time.....
My question is, has anyone tried these video poker ring games in a casino?
I would love to hear your thoughts and opinions!
One good thing seems to be that there is no pressure to tip a computer dealer!
