Live poker? Really?

Barring anything unforeseen in the next hour or so, I will be making the trek to the Par-A-Dice riverboat casino in East Peoria, IL to actually play a session of poker today. I have not played any live poker since I returned from my last trip to Las Vegas, so I have over a month of rust on the old (limited) skill set. The last time I looked, my pile of poker hundos had spider webs covering them.

One of my friends from my home game makes some secret trips there, but although I asked him to go with me he is unable. He has warned, me, however: "NEVER go on Saturday, never, you will lose. many loser and gambler come and will bet insanely and you have no idea how they play."

Hmmm ... loose players willing to gamble ... betting insanely? Shazam -- sounds like a wiener to me!

That's exactly what you want. Stay patient, hit the nuts and lower the boom.

Too bad you missed the NASCAR Hans in Vegas. Have fun! A bit jealous. That taste of live poker I had last was soooo sweet.

I think all of the crazy degen poker players from Chicago and eastern Illinois were at Prairie Meadows this weekend for the Heartland Poker Tour. I know the dealers and floor disagree, but I wish it was there every week.
