bestbet Jacksonville Casino (shown above) is a converted WalMart.
Saturday was a bust for me in the tournament at the bestbet Jacksonville Casino. A guy raised from middle position and I called with A-J. The flop was a jack and low cards. He bet, I raised and he called. By the river, we got it all in and he turned over a hand I couldn't put him on: J-8 off-suit. Yes, there was an 8 out there that came on the river.

I played the rest of the night in the Omaha-8 game. It was $4/8 with a half-kill. I play the same game in Tunica and it's always a loose one. Each player is dealt four cards and they just have to see a flop. With most flops, they have something and don't want to give it up. The Jacksonville game was the same or looser. Eight players seeing a flop was common.
After one deal was over, one man was trying to make a low hand, but he had a loser. Fortunately for him, he turned all four cards over and had a flush that he hadn't noticed -- it was a winner. On another deal, a man did the same thing and accidentally had a full house he hadn't noticed.

The tournament tables sat 10 players and did not have automatic shufflers. The ca$h tables sat only nine, and did have shufflers (which speeds up the game, obviously). The room had 70 tables and there were 45 in play. The joint was jumpin'.
