A male dealer at the Grand Sierra poker room tried to fuck me tonight

I dont know why but my tooth is really killing me so bad tonight that before i left the GSR i stopped in the gift shop and spent $10 comp on advil. it never bothers me so i dont know why. even after taking it i can still feel it. probably not enough time to take affect yet. (under 15 minutes). its definitely not the tooth that was xrayed on the other side when i couldnt figure out which tooth to xray last month and which needed out the most.

a great example of why i need to go to Karens dentist and have him xray the entire mouth. Karen says it would only be $100, the same as the other dentist charged for the one tooth. The tooth thats bothering me is the one with the jagged edge that feels sideways way towards the back, although i dont think its a wisdom tooth but maybe im wrong, if so it would be a lot more expensive and complicated. i knew its slanted and messed up for a long time but since ive not felt any discomfort from it before, i didnt think it was the most important tooth.

If i was to visit him this afternoon when i wake up to have him look at my mouth, id still like someone with me. (in case he wanted to do the work). Am wondering if its possible some food is caught in there even though i dont see how and thats why its bugging me so much tonight.

As always im playing the $5 quadruple up mtt's at this time of the morning. both the holdem one and the omaha one. i seem to do better in them than any other tourneys. as far as i know no casino offers such a structure live. wish they did.

and yes, theres a hand history i wanted to remember to talk about. the dealer tried to screw me over, but thanks to the honesty of the other player (on a $200+ pot) i got the pot anyway. here's the details.

i called (or made) a small raise to $12 preflop with kq and the flop came 6 10 J. theres a bet of $15 by me, and a raise to $35 by the guy immediately on my left. i called, and maybe 1 other guy did also. turn comes 5 and i check and he goes allin for $20 and i call other guy folds (if there was one). I'm asking the dealer to please not pair the board, and sure enough J hit the river. i show my QK face up, the other guy is allin. neither me nor the dealer recognize this for a minute (and i forgot). dealer mucks my hand, and i realize im first to act and theres no more action, floor comes over and the other player says its his pot, i cant beat him and shows Q9 for open ended smaller straight draw. one of the other players reminds the dealer the guy is allin, (dealer kept claiming he didnt hear the guy check the river and said i was trying to muck-and that the other guy hadnt acted yet). floor gave me the pot, the other player didnt want to contest the pot and said that i had him beat and to give me the pot. i wasnt trying to muck, i showed my hand quite frustrated i missed my draw, and fully waiting for him to turn over a better hand. was shocked when i seen the dealer mucking my hand. the dealer was forgetting he was allin, and was thinking i was mucking before he had a chance to bet.

  1. Here's a thought, your tooth is hurting you because you never go to the dentist and take care of your dental issues! Wow that was difficult to figure out.

  2. I've had a dealer (in a casino) grab my full house and muck it and push the pot to a guy with a straight. (The floor came and gave it to me as the whole table had seen the boat). That doesn't happen any more -- I keep my paws on the cards until he pushes me the pot.

  3. Instead of focusing on how the dealer made a mistake (tried to fuck you), why not commend the other player for his integrity and honesty? Many of us would do the same thing as the player and yet you only focus on the negative aspects of your life

    I still wish you good luck

  4. A perfect example of why you should always hold on to your cards until you get shoved the pot if you win, or let them go when you know you lost. Since your cards were mucked, if the other guy didn't say anything he it would have been his pot as the cards cannot be pulled out of the muck. You blame the dealer?? Your responsibility to protect your hand as any reasonable player knows.

  5. I am very disappointed after reading the title of your post. I thought that you had finally found someone to hang out with you at the poker table and rub your ... back and neck.

  7. "i show my QK face up"

    To be fair you threw the hand forward towards the daeler with a show of frustration, that's why the dealer thought you mucked. You didn't know you still had the winning hand until the player said 'you had me beat' or something like that.

  8. This is why an orderly showdown is so important. "All in" players go first...always. Because they were the one that got called. Acting in turn is part of the patience of the game. The button determines the order until the river card. If the river checked, it starts next to the button again. If a bet and call has been made, it starts with the called hand. With side pots you work your way backwards to them main pot, and the All In shows first in descending order. Tournaments are especially vulnerable to miscues like this since there is a likelihood of many people being all in on the same hand. Bottom line...keep your cool, pay attention, and wait your turn. Once the chips have been pushed forward, players tend to lose their place in space and time when standing on the edge of getting sucked into a Black Hole.

    1. Actually (to be extremely technical) in most casinos 'allin players' do not generally go first if they were allin prior to the river. It goes as if everyone checked on the river. Of course, Every poker room has different rules on this or that, but if

  9. Why mention the gender of the dealer in the title? What difference does that make? Just asking.

    2. so yeah, "All in" players go first...always" is totally incorrect

    3. Right. It's actually mostly backwards. For example, players involved in a side pot will show before an all-in player. The only time the all-in player shows first is if that player shoved and was called. If they called all-in they show after the player they called. As far as I know this applies in *all* casinos with the possible exception of some dump in Reno.

  12. Tony did nothing wrong, tabled cards speak... he turned his cards up, no way the other player ever gets the pot.... have to go back to video if needed, but they would have gotten it right. Dealers make mistakes, a lot of times they rely on cues from how the player acts, and you throwing the hand face up probably looked like an open face muck.

    "Male dealer tried to fuck me" then the first line of the blog being about how his mouth hurts extra bad today.... I thought this blog was going a totally different way for a second there.

  13. new roll $9151 after a very lousy session at the Peppermill. had way too much on the table, lost $88 in the 100 play video poker, and the rest in the $1-2 Nl game where i rebought $412 more after already being in for $341. now down to only $14 an hour as i passed the 1700 hour mark. year isnt quite up til the end of april but my income is down about $1000 from when it was over $26,000. i sure dont have hardly any of that in the bankroll.

    anthony the dealer from the GSR was playing really really loose, constantly straddling $7-9 every pot and i knew he couldnt have a real hand all those times. yet i lost all my money cause every time i had a good hand like AQ he would always have JJ, QQ, etc and id never make a pair. game was shorthanded and i gotta bet it preflop, i really should avoid shorthanded games.

    i left broke, took a cab to the BOA atm across from atlantis, went inside and finally eked out $100 profit, and it was briefly a $200 profit and i almost lost it all but put a bad beat on someone with 6J offsuit against their QQ. am finally home and dead tired, too tired to make a whole new blog.

    i did find out tonight u can play cash games on bovada on ur cell, but its hard to see the suits of the cards in ur hand and pay close enough attn.

    1. FYI..Starting May 1st, all Live games in Reno will no longer allow CASH on the table. Must be converted to chips at all times. Just catching up now with all other gaming rules under Title 31. We knew this was going to happen.

    2. Oh and when you are texting or emailing someone for a reply and you dont get an answer right away - you freak out and hammer them with more texts/emails - this is why Josie hates you among other things. You are extremely impatient and you would know it when you see it - moron.
