Incident At The Imperial Palace Poker Room (funny Vegas Story I Think)


Recommended Posts

Just got back from Vegas. I suck at poker.In 1/2 NL, I lost every race situation. AK to 88, 10-10 to J-J, 10-10 to 9-9, AK to AQ. The one time I had KK, I played it HU with another guy - he also had KK. Other than those hands, I had cold cards the entire trip. Any plays I made at pots were picked off. Any time I wanted to play a marginal hand, there would be call, raise, re-raise before me.In limit, I played one session without dragging a pot once.If it weren't for blackjack and craps, I would be down money on this trip. (Doesn't make sense, does it? Doesn't J.C. Tran talk about staying away from the pit games?)Anyway - a Vegas story.1/2 NL game with 3 drunken college students doing shots every 2nd hand. One sober guy keeps receiving bad beats from one of the drunken kids and keeps egging them on ("another round of JD - I'm buying").I'm in the BB, sitting to the right of the dealer. Drunk kid in seat #1 raises to 10. Folds to the sober guy who re-raises to 20. Folds to me and I throw away 8-5o. Drunk kid calls.Flop comes: K J 10 (with no flush draw).Drunk kid bets 10. Sober guy re-raises to 25.All of a sudden I hear the dealer yell out "Floor! Towel - NOW!"The drunk kid had his head down and was puking. Yes - puking at a poker table! With his head down, he pushes all his chips into the middle (I think maybe 60 more).Sober guy calls quickly and turns over A Q for the nut straight.Turn: QRiver: K (K J 10 Q K).Kid looks up in pain and whispers "Sorry - I have a full house (KQ)". He summons the courage to stand up and offers his hand to the sober guy for handing out yet another bad beat. Sober guy brushes him aside and leaves the table. Not sure if it was in disgust of another bad beat or if there was puke on his hand.If anyone gets hold of the security tape, definitely Youtube materal.

Only one of those is a race.
Wrong! Most consider any all in preflop situation to be a race. Refering to it as a coin flip is different however.

If you don't remember buttsecks for money and your bum doesn't hurt, then it is like a tree falling in the forest......spend the cash.

Don't think so...Race is a synonym for coinflip, unless I've been living in a cave for the last 3 years.

QFTWhen did 1010 vs. JJ preflop become a race? Or a coinflip for that matter?

Perhaps just a different cave than me as its always been in reference to any all in pre flop whenever I've heard it ie: you're racing through the five community cards. While coinflips have always refered to 60/40ish type hands. (Although I've yet to find a coin that is 60/40 one way or another)

I'm with the race=coinflip crowd. Actually a race is two over cards vs a pair with a "classic race" being AK vs a pocket pair. Something like A9 vs KT I wouldn't call a race or a coinflip.

QFT, how does the word race have anything to do with a coinflipin a coinflip, both participants will win about 50% of the timein a race, one person will win about 98% of the time

Completely disagree.Race implies that you are both starting from the same point, and now it is out of your hands - the cards will run the course. Race = Coin Flip

I played there the last time i was in vegas at 6am, and me and my friend were the drunk guys messing around in the game. My buddy rivered a gutterball straight after he bet the flop and got called and bet the turn and got called on a board of KK3turn 4 river 2 he had A5, and insta pushed on the river she called instantly (she was some old lady that was a mega biatch).....we proceeded to bust out into laughter for about 5 minutes straight then proceeded to give it all back (I had AA, KK and AKx2 in the first 30 minutes). Poetic justice I guess.
