Yep. That's one of the things a person hasta get used to.
I play a lot on the $20.00 tables at Hawaiian Gardens. The only casino around here with them. I play because the money is pretty steady. I can literally stop in there for lunch. Sit down with 20, and walk away with a free lunch and a hundred dollar bill.
What I had to get used to at first was getting over the bad beats. I mean, they make some stupidly, stupid plays. Which seem work out for them, sometimes
. Then the steam comes. They just took a big chunk, off a rivered set fives. Or the ever present flush draw.
Then it hit me. I mean, I always knew it. But it really hit me. I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.
Gotta take the good (plenty) with the bad. (few)
