  • Tropicana Opens Swanky New Trago Lounge
    Tropicana has opened its new Trago Lounge, and we had to swing by for cocktails, video poker, a live DJ and mostly that first thing. “Trago,” of course, is the first person singular present indicative of “trazer” in Spanish. As if that weren’t obvious. cl_imgMon, 18 Mar 2019, 11:50 pm PDT
  • Confirmed: Total Rewards Will Become Caesars Rewards
    Caesars Entertainment has been kind enough to confirm a story we first broke back in October 2018: The company’s loyalty club, Total Rewards, will be rebranded as Caesars Rewards. We are not a psychic, we just play one on the Interwebs. The switch from Total Rewards to Caesars Rewards will take place Feb. 1, 2019. Here’s a look at the new Caesars Rewards cards.

  • Player Hits Rare Sequential Royal Flush for $217,000 Jackpot
    Lots of video poker players dream of hitting a royal flush. Some of us have even played on and off for, oh, 20 years and have never hit one. Not bitter. At all. One lucky video poker player at Red Rock Resort not only hit a royal, they hit a rare sequential royal flush. The player’s $5 bet reaped an incredible $217,591.55 jackpot. And the Internet went wild.

  • Sigma Derby is Done at MGM Grand
    A popular, old-timey horse racing slot machine called Sigma Derby has finally been put down for good at MGM Grand. Sigma Derby has a passionate following, and until recently, there were just two in Las Vegas (and possibly the country). And then there was one. An MGM Grand rep confirmed to us Sigma Derby won’t be back. The company said it has “done everything possible to prolong its active lifespan but that’s simply no longer possible.” Tue, 13 Nov 2018, 01:17 am PST
  • Hard Rock Rolls Out Painless Drink Voucher System
    The first time we ever saw a voucher system for free drinks on a video poker machine, we had a minor meltdown. That was at Mirage, back in 2015. Then Caesars Entertainment made a splash when it rolled out drink monitoring to all its casino bars. We still had sort of a meltdown, but we learned some deep breathing exercises and started asking questions. Let’s just say we’ve done a 180 since 2015, largely due to understanding more about why drink monitoring systems are necessary and how, surprising...

A few years back, before Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall (originally Barbary Coast) was gutted to become the Cromwell, we got to stroll the casino’s old-school, labyrinthine catwalk. cl_imgWed, 6 Jun 2018, 01:41 am PDT

  • Did You Spit in My Drink?
    On the Saturday before Christmas, I played a tournament at Venetian.  They were having their New Years Extravaganza, and that weekend they were featuring a two-starting flight $340 buy-in with a $100K guarantee. The levels were 40-minutes and the starting stack was 25K so it was a pretty good value.  The Saturday I played was the second starting flight and those who made it thru either day 1 would return on Sunday. Sadly, I wasn't one of those returning on Sunday. I was at a really tough table,...

    Saturday I was back in Ventura for a another 2/3 session.  It turned out to be a good session—I won some money, won a hand with pocket Kings and even got a weird story out of those Kings.Early on, probably the first time I was the big blind, I got pocket Aces.  There was a raise to $10 and a call, so when it got to me, I made it $40.  The original raiser folded, but the guy who called the $10 went all-in.  Cool.When I had just gotten to the table, this guy had shoved a small stack preflop, and w...

    This is about my most recent session in Ventura.  Before I headed out there this particular Saturday, I had already decided that I was going to play 2/3, not 1/2 as I have been playing lately.  Originally, I started playing 1/2 because I noticed how poor the play was at that game.  The players were just so bad I thought it would be like taking candy from a baby.  And truth is, I did have some success at that game when I started. But I couldn't build on that success and then it all kind of went s...

  • Meltdown Smeltdown
    So I failed to make my goal this week. Not the most horrible thing in the world but still disappointing in week 2. I did have a nice meltdown on Saturday that did not help. Basically ate up my profits for the week then fought back and got my losses back. I kept getting so fucked so far up my ass with stupid people calling with bullshit hands and going runner runner on me.Anyway that is poker. I am implementing a 2 game stop loss. If I lose two in a row I take a short break and peek at cute anime...

  • Losing Streak
    A lot of you know me already but here is another look into the bad mentality that makes it hard for me to succeed in poker: I am on a losing streak.What do I mean by a losing streak? I am only up 44$ this week. I have lost like 2-3 SNGs in a row. My stats are 4-5 since I started taking notes. Big fucking losing streak right? Hell I even cashed in 88th place in a 780 person MTT. It was a eleven center for 1.10 but still..Fuck me if I have not gotten lucky too.. I mean first hand of my last first...

  • The Good Things In Life
    The nice thing about playing poker online besides not having to drive 45 minutes to a casino... You can just sit there, doing an Al Bundy with your hand down your pants.. maybe picking your nose a few times.. and it's all good.. Nobody even looks twice at ya.The Global Poker cashout went perfectly. I applied on Friday night I think.. so I did not expect a response until Monday, on Monday they said they wanted a photo of my license not a scan.. so I sent that.. and by Tuesday the funds were sitti...

  • Well that is a Weight off the Shoulders
    Bought in and pending my first cash out at Global Poker. Bought in for $100 and in my first week doubled up to $200 and cashing out $50. So far the cash out process is somewhat easy. It is kind of hard to find as you have to click buy coins.. then there is a cashout tab. Once you are verified via license and a bill from your address you get your cash back in PayPal. A fee is attached to payout apparently so will have to watch that. Will keep you informed as to how well this works.We all know tha...

  • Going Well
    The upswing continues. I am hoping to be up a hundred by the end of the week and then cash out 50, and do it again to $300. I think making $100 a week would be pretty cool. I am not sure it's not possible at $6.60 SNGs. I am also not sure it is.. and I am usually hesitant to make these goals because if I start moving the other direction I get chasey.One other thing I am noticing. I had great success at the non-turbo games playing hard and just trying to make 3rd every game. I go on the site this...
