How I spent my New Year's eve
I went to the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica to play poker last night. These hot chicks were chasing me around. It was disgusting, actually, but I was in the mood for poker so I turned them down flat. I can get hotties like these anytime.
I played in the 7 p.m. tournament. The buyin was $110 and we started with 5,000 in chip$. Most of the time I was card dead -- A-Q was my best hand and I lost money on it. By folding a lot and stealing when I had position, I made the final table as one of the two short stacks. There, an older guy raised to 1500. I had A-Q off (again) in the big blind and around $4000. I called, then shoved on the flop of K-K-8. He wasn't falling for a stop-and-go. His hole cards were 8-8 and he had flopped a boat. Haha, oh well.
After that I got on the list for the Omaha-8 game. I played $4/8 limit while waiting. When my name was called I had $100 in chips, so didn't buy in for more. Early on I scooped two hands in a row. Everything I played I hit it or completely whiffed, so that I knew to get out. Later I scooped two more hands in a row. Cashed out for $400. Lots of fun when it goes like that -- good way to start the new year.
Men had New Year's eve hats that the casino was giving out and women had feather things. Most people had beads. I haven't seen the beads thing before -- maybe they got it mixed up with Mardi Gras. At midnight there was complimentary champagne.
Here's a shot of the casino I took on the way out:
Images were taken with my P&S -- the first one by a lady who was standing nearby.
