Man, there was one massive hand against the maniac I thought for sure I was going to scoop. Playing shorthanded and on the turn I have the wheel plus the 2nd nut flush and he had the nut flush to split the pot (the Ace of hearts was on the board)
That was pretty bogus, because I was psyched I was going to scoop a massive pot (since he was the type to push a non-nut flush really hard and what are the chances in a short handed game he's going to happen to have me beat for high there?)
Was a wild time though. I'm heading back next week for their Memorial Day Weekend celebration. Sat-Mon they'll award 5 grand every 30 minutes from 10am-8pm and 50 grand at 8pm to people who swipe their card that day.
That should bring out a ton of recreational players, bumping up the profitability of the games and of course I'll have a small shot at being picked for one of those prizes too.
