Now I’m not a huge fan of poker. It’s not because I don’t like the game – I do. But I just feel its unfair to take money off other people in order for me to win. I prefer house banked games like blackjack and baccarat, played against large casino corporations, who can afford to lose a few thousand at a time. I like to take their money – but I don’t want to feel any guilt afterwards. Sadly, when you’re winning in poker, you are taking any money won from a fellow PLAYER rather than the casino. That sucks in my book – although I know many of my regular blog readers will have no issue with it. After all, gambling is gambling right?
Tonight I’ve been offered a seat at a VIP invitation only event at my local casino. There’s about 50 seats in all, and prizes for the top 3 players (I’m not even sure what they are – I think $500, $1000, and $2000 or something like that). I’m not expecting to win – but hey, if I get to the top table even, that would be cool. You see, because of my dis-inclination to win from other people, I don’t play poker very often at all. Maybe 2 or 3 times a year. So I don’t rate myself very highly as a poker player. I stick to blackjack and the other games I play well.
Anyway, as I believe that luck is a big part of poker, wish me luck! Perhaps if enough readers of this blog send good lucky vibes my way, I’ll do better than I expect! You just never know when it comes to gambling. I’m not superstitious, but I do think there are lucky and unlucky days, and lucky and unlucky cards. And honestly, where poker is concerned, I need as much luck as I can get!
