just got back from atlantic city <kinda long>


Recommended Posts

i was there with my wife , so i had to sneak in poker when i could..this is only my third time playing in a b&m ,so i was a bit nervous.i know what to expect online,but this was diffrent lol..iplayed 4/8 the first day ..<at the tropicana> i would like to say the tables were soft and i made a killing, but id be lying,..the tables were soft, but i was card dead...i litteraly didnt see cards above j 7 os for the first 2 hours....lot of ppl playing any 2 cards down to the river in most cases calling 3 bets cold with absolute rags...i had a guy tell me "i play any king" ...."i just cant fold it, doesnt matter what the other card is"... i cant make that crap up lol....i was dying to get a pice of some of this ..i finally went on a mini rush and took down a few pots...walked away the first session with a little over double my buy in , which wasnt bad for not having any cards...i played 6/12 today....table was actually worse than at 4/8....this was as high as i have ever played live , so i was a bit apprehensive...same as the 4/8 ppl calling with worse than rags...mostly senior citizens and a few wanna bes thrown in...there was a guy wearing a poker stars hat and sunglasses that he would only wear if he was in a hand..<yes, i laughed at him openly and loudly>he was telling the table how he is gonna qualify for the wsop online and for us to remember his name..so he's got that going for him....i got some cards today, managed to walk away with a pretty decent profit..i was just shocked at how badly people play poker ....i know there are fish online and i expect that, i just never really noticed how much more terrible they are in casinos...limits mean nothing there,.<at least they ones i played 4/8 6/12> is anyone else floored by this? ....i guess the point of this post is as long as you play good solid tight aggressive poker you can beat the game against maniacs or calling stations<i know this isnt a news flash>its like they just wanna hand you their chips...sorry this is longer than i intended, and kinda boring..just wanted to tell ppl that are sort of new to live poker that they should give it a try....$$$

Everybody at the trop is old and miserable. Its dirty there and the atmosphere sucks. You can find 4/8 and 6/12 games of that nature anywhere you go in AC, so why spend your time at the Trop? The trop is the staten island of atlantic city.(obvious enough that i hate it there?)Glad you enjoyed your time.

The Borgata chips are like plastic or something, I've had a couple crack in half on me ... weird ...IVEY - as for your wife, if she wants to stay at Trop, thats cool. The Taj is about a 10 minute walk down the boardwalk from the Trop, so just leave her in the spa and mosey on down to the Taj.

trop is much nicer now that they built The Quarter.... those arent magnets on the taj chips.. its dirt.... and the borgata has very few low limit games.... at least on the weekends ... good luck
