The trip started bad enough.
I almost missed my fight because of high security, My luggage didn't make it though and I had no suitcase until i was ready to leave.
After I picked up my car and typed in the address I needed to go to in downtown LA for some reason it took me to a zoo in Burbank.
6 PM i check in the hotel the room has no TV so i change rooms.
7 PM i fall asleep my wife calls at 7:30 to see if i am sleeping so now i cant get to sleep i take a shower go to my car type in casino and go to the nearest 1 which is Hollywood park.
by 9 i sit down, $200 buy in $3-5 blinds.
I play a while mucking everything, all i am getting is 23 45 72 38 I don't see a face card for 20 minutes.
The table is tight I am playing tight too so when i get anything and make a Small raise i don't get much action.
I finally get QQ make a small raise and a young girl wearing a "led Zeppelin : Tee re raises me, (i am wearing my floyd T because i had it in my carry on)I call flop comes Q73 rainbow I check she bets $30 I re raise to $60 she goes Allin with $120 more I call and turn over the QQ. turn is 3 she throws her cards without showing(now we know which band is better, hehe). we play some more with nothing special going on as 2 new players sit down. One guy is raising all over the place with every hand the complete opposite of the table.
! hand he is on the button I am BB he raises to $20 I have 8Q suited and I call, flop Q85 rainbow I check he bets $30 I raise to $60 he goes Allin another $150 I call him and he turns over KK, He finally got something and got outfloped and i won that hand too.
The best hand though was when i stand up to see the Mets highlights on ESPN and they are trailing 4-0 to the cubs at that moment i look down and see AA so i yell at the TV and make a raise to $20 a new guy to my left calls and a tight player on the button raises to $50 now i see the mets pull the game out in the bottom of the ninth i pump my fist say YESSSSS and then say Allin. (i swear it was like in the movies)
the new guy calls with all his chips $150 more the button mucks. I turn over AA the new guy turns over 10-10 and the button says he mucked JJ
I win that hand and I have about $1200. its now almost midnight but my body tells me its 3 AM so get the F out while you are up.
I don't listen and keep playing loss couple of hands on river and to a better kicker.
I get up with $940 tip the dealer 20 give the cashier 20 tuck my $700 in profit in my pocket and go to back to my hotel to sleep.
All in all it was a good night.

That's an awesome poker story right there. Congrats on the good run. Sounds like you played smart, and watched your opponents for reads. Good job! I'm going to move this over to the Playing poker forum. :)

I tiped the cashier because they walk around its not a cage like in other places.
I also tipped the security guy who gave me a ride in his golf cart to my car, we circled the lot 6 times because I forgot what kind of car i had. i gave him $10.
My thinking is, If i win everyone wins.

So, if you lose, does that mean you mug everyone?

Congrats on a solid night!
