The Golden Nugget is one of the best places to play poker in Las Vegas. Better dealers (for the most part) better cocktail service, and on at least some of the more popular tables, the phone chargers are working. Tourists come here from all over, including Canada as we will see. Reduced rake is automatic when 6 handed to $1-1. and i would like to thank one of the dealers, a guy named Donald. there might be more than 1 with his name. when totally fed up my phone wouldnt bring up the wifi login page for me (pretty much the whole week) when it kept doing it for everyone else, i offered $5 for anyone who could fix it. 1 guy at the other end was upset i tossed the phone down in his direction. the 2 players who got the wifi to work wouldnt offer to help. (on both sides of him). however the dealer happily spent time getting it to work between hands and finally got me logged in by resetting something not sure what, in the phone.
there were a man and his wife playing poker at the table, from Canada. they looked like maybe id seen them yrs ago somewhere. the women seemed to know of AVP, was quite talkative (especially of her very left wing political beliefs and how canada is so much further to the left) and was from newfoundland, and i think often visits the MGM too. i at first thought it might be the woman kissmyaces on that website who used to troll me with negative comments, but it seems its someone else. she wanted to see my blog when she learned of it, and the guy next to is on my twitter and knew of both flushdraw and lightnings blog. funny thing was when she and her husband left, those same 2 seats were again filled by a guy and his girl, this time an interracial couple who quickly moved tables. i did tell the first couple how much i appreciated them playing at the same table (and hard against each other). i never realized how u cannot drive to newfoundland from ontario.
it got discussed how hypocritical it is for canada to bar those whove been convicted, when canadians dislike Trump and think we're racist for deporting illegals convicted of felonies, when they wont even let people in with smaller offenses. she spoke of how everyone should be able to use drugs legally., though she wouldnt herself. those who know the truth though realizes how much crime, violence and damage drugs does to the lives of the desperately poor in inner city areas. i think Canada originally started this law to keep out inner city blacks in detroit. so they have much nerve calling us, or trump, racist.
yes im conservative, but once 10 yrs has passed (in my case 27 for Gods sakes) this should no longer be an issue. it shouldnt be for life. i generally support the police, law and order due to my fears of violent crime and robberies, but on some issues, such as seizing peoples money, even i dont approve.
they sure are leftwing in canada. even suicide is legal there, people who are old, depressed, instead of being helped are probably pressured against their will to do it. this is what happens when a country forgets God and instead worships the false Gods of homosexuality and abortion. i never realized how much this is in their country. and she talked of their healthcare where those must waits months for much needed care given almost instantly in the US is a good thing?
i will be glad once Koala returns to the USA to hang out with in the poker rooms, hopefully he wont insist it be in vegas. lightning did meet up more than once and i finally got to meet his wife. if i were not banned a few places id have found where he was playing more often. we did play both wynn and planet h and i bought his food in the wynn.
i tipped the front desk clerk $5 who found me a room offer i didnt know of, some on twitter congratulated me for trying to be thoughtful, others were just trolls. People are more likely to try to do right if they feel their attempts are appreciated.
i lost one big pot to the lady from canada early on. she was really lucky at first, even getting $409 on a royal flush. she said she wasnt a liberal but rather a proud socialist. she made it $10 preflop with a9 and i called in position with ak. (shouldve reraised). flop comes a97 so i shoved over her bet on the flop. i felt the ONLY hand i might lose to was aa. wrong time to shove, too late then, preflop wouldve worked, but i wanted to see a safe flop first, and i thought this looked like a safe flop. now the other times i had ak, i could only get chops with her or her husband, but not wins.
i would like to thank Lightning for joking about senor frogs, when we really ate in the wynn, but i didnt wish to publicly post where we would be eating or playing.
i did fold 33 once on the flop in P-ho with lightning, and wouldve backdoored rrunner runner quads. he wasnt involved i dont think. nor did i mention it much when it happened. i didnt want to look like a fool. i thought the girl next to him was michelle, but it wasnt.
one more hand history and i had Q8 of clubs. the flop was 10 2 4 with 2 clubs. instead of reraising in postion with 4 clubs, i only called, thinking he would put me allin if i did. and i thought if i waited til the turn to raise it would then look like a made hand instead of a draw. red 9 comes turn, so i repop over his bet to $135. he shoves for $180 more and with both the flush and straight draws i call since the pots so big. i miss of course.
one hand i did play well. i had the nut flush in diamonds on the river with a6 of diamonds when the diamond fell. the guy who bet the whole way went allin for $70 more and i only called hoping for the call behind me. instead, the guy shoves $205, which i of course call with the nuts. he shoved with the second nuts K hi flush.
this blog is less offensive than it was originally going to be in my notes i removed some things to avoid upsetting people not mentioned here. i feel God wants me to really work on treating certain types of people better, we are all human, we all deserve the right to be treated compassionately. especially those who love God or have autism. too often the world thinks only other races or gays deserve this, but not for those most victimized. i truly hate when others who cant stand up for themselves suffer. or all those who dont care how their actions cause others to suffer. such as union workers on strike, BLM people blocking highways, people putting their rack on the floor, asking for setups, talking on the phone at the table, or simply voting to make weed legal, which causes in the future people to be addicted to heroin, one of the worst forms of drugs. or maybe vote for homosexual marriage, which causes little kids to be abused. some even favor adoption being legal for gay couples too, these people are completely without compassion for the harm it does to the kids. just adults for their own selfish reasons.
