Game of Choice?

Unread postby skatingtripods » Mon May 18, 2009 5:49 pm

What's everybody's game of choice when they head out to the casinos?

Mine are Texas Hold 'Em and Let It Ride. I'll play some Three Card Poker on occasion, same with blackjack.

Hold 'em, Pai Gow and a little bit of video poker.

You want a real gamble? Drive out to Valley of Fire via the Hoover Dam in July with Mr. & Mrs. Lead Pipe and only a quarter tank of gas.

The Lead Man is an advantage player only, and as Peeker indicates, a trip to the Valley of Fire was a rare negative expectation play.

Poker, video poker (only with excellent pay schedule and a variation the Lead Man can play at an expert level) and of course, the Sports Book.

I will say this, early morning in Vegas is underrated. Relaxing at the Pai Gow tables at this time is one of Lead Man's favorites.

Sportsbook, craps, hold em, blackjack.

In that order.

Pai Gow is the most underrated casino game. By far the best to play in a casino

It's a nice game when you just want to relax (morning sessions), you've lost most of your bankroll for the trip or you're so stinkin' drunk that you need the dealer to set your hands for ya...

By best to play, I hope you mean personally satisfying because there are much better games as far as winning percentage goes in a casino...Paying that ridiculous 5% commision kills it

To love Pai Gow, then you must love hockey, soccer & tic-tac-toe for the "tie" factor involved ;-) ;) :wink:

Donovan McNabb would probably not get it too well???

Craps, Sportsbook, roulette, and Hold em if I need to slow down a bit. I love poker, but I go to Casino's to do what I can't at home.

Craps, blackjack, pretending to plays slots just to get served drinks.

Not gonna arue with any of your comments. I love to sit with $100, drink all day for free, and walk with $100.
Problem is McNabb loves Pai Gow. He thought it would be a push and they would play again. At least I don't have to play Cincy twice a year!
