i used to play alot of poker at the LA asian casinos around here (those were my dark years). i have alot of stories. funny ones. bad ones. mostly at the end i just lose it all not at poker but at pai gow or pan 9 game that i was addicted to.
i played alot of 3-6 and 4-8 at commerce and normandie. one of my memorable hands was at 7 card stud, i remember it exactly (lot of hands i remember exactly):
i had rolled up 6s. the guy next to me had 3s rolled up. the last person on the other end of the table had pocket As (this was all revealed at end of hand of course).
the betting was capped the first round and all 7 players stayed in. (lot of loose players at normandie, and it was 2-4 so it was loose), 4th street, couple people fell out, but still capped bet, 5th street 1 more person folded, bet/raise, and 6th street bet ( i was checking all the way, just slow playing that hand) and the river i get another 6 , the guy next to me gets his 3, and the last guy makes a AAA?? full house. the other person makes a straight.
i check, four 3s bets, straight calls, Aces full raises, i call, four 3s reraises, straight calls, and the Aces full guy ( a tall black fella) stands up and yells at the top of his hand "what yo mofos got???!!! and opens his hands and reveals his aces full, and starts high fiving his guys next to him. i call, and call , straight of course folds.
4 threes, gets all excited and says 'send it!" and shows the 4 threes and , then no one ever knew i had 4 6s, i say 'dam send it mofos!!" and everyone at the table was in a roar, it was like dam check this out , dam , dam! everyone was saying dam! the 4 three guy was very upset and was quiet but was like 'dam good hand wtf'
the pot was like 250 -300 bux or so, it was only 2-4 and you can only cap it and at that time they didnt have jackpot instituted yet so it kind of sucked. just one story.
ive won several jackpots at poker tables but they were always table shares. never hit it myself. but the table shares can be nice. one was like 450 bux each person table share because the jackpot was like 4500, but then it was during a redlight time where the jackpots were doubled.
dont gamble pleas.e
