Whats Up Everyone. It's Been A While.

So, I Went To The Casino A Few Hours From My House The Other Day, And I Got My First Experience Playing Casino Poker. I Was A Little Irritated That The Ring Game Was Only Limit Hold Em With 2/5 Blinds, But I Was More Irritated That All Of The hands That I Hit On Were Outdrawn By Longshots. I Guess That's The Nature Of Limit Hold Em Though. I Played Solid, But Managed To Lose $65 Because Of All Of The Horrible Draws That I Was Against.

I Entered The Nightly NL Freeroll, Which Had 45 Entries. I Felt Good About My Chances Going In To The Tournament, And Was Encouraged To Find Out That Some Of The Players I Had Played In The Ring Game Bet Dinner That I Would Win The Tournament Because They Were Impressed With How I Played In The Ring Game, Despite The End Result.

3 Hours Later, I Won The Tournament And $400. Not Bad For My First Time Playing In A Casino.

Good job! I'm reminded of a quote from Star Wars (1977):

[Luke blows up his first TIE fighter]
Luke: Got 'im! I got 'im!
Han Solo: Great, kid. Don't get cocky.

The local one in Melbourne is running a freeroll Aussie Millions satellite some time soon: catch is, the rebuys are $50 :p

Yeah, it's at Crown - December 15 at 12:30pm: Aussie Millions Warm-Up Weekend

It's really a rebuy tournament - just your initial buy-in is free, and rebuy players there thrown $50 notes around the same way people play $2 rebuys online.

I might play it, I think a few friends of mine are going to do it for a laugh. Don't really have the budget to support loads of rebuys though, so I wouldn't be playing an especially good game.

There's also a Melbourne in Florida, I believe

But it's the one that's in Australia and home to the Aussie Millions that we're talking about
