Saturday Wrap Up

Blue Chip Casino

I made my first trip to the Blue Chip Casino in Michigan City, IN today. I was looking forward to playing in its poker room, but ... there was no one playing! I was quite shocked to see only two Blue Chip employees in the room on an early Saturday afternoon. Quite disappointing.

I played some slots and hung around for awhile with my brother, but franky, there was nothing special in this casino to keep us there. It is not very big and was too smokey for my tastes. It is part of the Boyd Gaming properties, places I usually do not frequent.

Horseshoe Hammond

We decided to bypass the Majestic Star Casino in Gary, IN and went straight to my favorite non-Las Vegas poker room, Harrah's Horseshoe Hammond. I only had a short wait as a new table was ready to open shortly after I got on the waiting list.

The play was predictable -- less than stellar. I had to settle for only doubling my buy-in as a streak of poor cards kept me on the sidelines most of my last hour of play. Unfortunately, we could not stay very long since I still had several hours of driving that night and a long trip the next day. I was hoping to meet The Poker Meister at The Shoe, but we missed each other by 2 1/2 hours. I can't wait to hear how he did.

Aww, I'm not complaining. It's just that my expectations when playing cash here are now much higher.

But thank you! And ... I want you to know that I do pretty well when playing the VJ!
