Like you said, brutal, especially given that you were near the bubble.
I don't play poker (I am teaching Julie and her mother bridge), but I would have thought your pair of aces should have been good enough.
@Dave: Thanks for the comment. I didn't go into it in the post, but this guy was a loose cannon. He had called an all-in with 10-7 among other plays, so he could have had anything.
Ouch! So close..good run anyway! The Beau is very pretty. There was a bridal photo shoot going on in the lobby while we were there in January.
I guess I'm going to have to visit some casinos just to see what they're all about. Or, I could go along with you, Dave, and you could show me the ropes! ;)BTW, we visited the MOJO Grill last evening and it was a fine experience: the service was superb and the food excellent. It's kind of a roadhouse kind of thing - noisy and colorful - but lots of fun. I'll post some photos soon, but will send you some, too.
