    So bad information won me 15k cash today

    My girlfriends nephew goes to college at San Diego state. He was visiting LA for the three day weekend and I offered to drive him back to school. I noticed there was a huge carryover of a million bucks at gulfstream, so I figured I would take the kid back and then go play a little poker and horses at the Indian casinos. I dropped him off early and decided to check out the biggest Indian casino in southern cal. I had never been there. It did not have horses but I was early so I was going to check this place out play a little poker and then head to a casino with horse racing. I had till 1140 to get to gulfstream and I had plenty of time. We left LA at 5am to avoid traffic so I was playing poker before 830. The problem was the place sucked. It only had two tables running, a 1-2 and a 1-3. Boring as hell. I won 75 bucks and was talking to the guy next to me. He was telling me oceans 11 has horse racing now and was 45 minutes away. I knew of a place in El Cajon but I was going
    To hit oceans cause it was closer. He then says to me " go to harrahs rincon that's the closest place to here and it's really nice and they also have horses. Since I play at Caesars vegas often I said good idea. I leave poker play a little blackjack win about 1200 and off to harrahs rincon........

    So I am in this machine for exactly 5000 and ........




    i bink this baby for 20k. but that's not the great part....I am waiting to get paid and I ask the floorman in high limit where is the race book? He says "we don't have horse racing here" . So I won 15k because guy in poker room sent me to a casino that didn't have horse racing! If the guy didn't give me bad info I would have never went there.

    one last beautiful nugget, I would have lost the pick six

    Must be nice to put 5K in one of those machines...

    I mean, they didn't go through the trouble of making that thing to take your money or anything...

    LOL seaweed. Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    iifold there are many video poker games where the edge is far far lower then juice is sports betting. In some cases 90% less of an edge then a typical 110 for 100 bet. Just because it's a machine doesn't mean the house edge is strong if you know what you are looking for.

    Want to bet? Or is talking your specialty? I didn't realize I blocked out the $5 logo with the pad. However I do have a pic I took as an inside joke with another SBR poster that shows they are $5. I already emailed it to him, if you care to make a wager I can post it.

    Actually the classless one was you accusing me of being so pathetic that I would make up a story to get attention on the internet. I actually thought, and it seems like others agreed, that what happened was pretty amusing. Notice when iifold made a comment towards me that could have been construed as a little insulting and was completely inaccurate I didn't get into a lame pissing contest. I just respectfully informed him that many VP games have very low how edges.

    putting 5k in a virtual machine shows you might be in deeper than 20k.. just saying no normal gambler (or video poker grinder) putting that kinda cash on machines.. let alone a multi-hand poker machine

    Cool story bro. Not sure if anyone here believes you, but maybe.. rincon harrahs is nice, but real far out in the boonies. Do me a favor, smoke, JJ, all the boys here at SBR, never go to valley view casino near Escondido. I went with my hyena once to get the free play and the free buffet. I had my mochilla, Cruz I was coming from the hood and its a long trip on their bus. They give me a ribbon for my backpack and I take it off later. They come and give me another ribbon, I leave it on this time. I'm sitting at the slot machine, and a sure no kid working security comes up and sticks me in the back. Cheap kidney shot. I stand up like was up fool. And he says you keep taking your ribbon off your backpack. Well it was on folded in the strap. I complained to management and supervisors but they didn't do nothing. I didn't call the sherrifs, Cruz I not like that. Couldn't really serve the punk, Cruz I'm on probation.

    Tell you what I will do, every person that has posted ITT so far is eligible, and no one else. Tomorrow morning I will start a thread. Every person ITT who wants to play posts one pick a day versus the spread, must use a pinnacle line in real time -110 max. If you forget to post any day its a loss editing posts is not allowed. Only spread wagering, no money lines. They must choose one game each day till we have a lone survivor.

    Now here's my favorite part Sam you and only you start the contest -1/2 game because you were the lone a@@@ole in this thread ( you like the icon ?) so you essential can not tie anyone after the seven games or your " a@@@ole tax " of a 1/2 game will cost you.

    Anyone who is in just post pick tomorrow. Again if you are not ITT yet you are not eligible.

    Monitor tan below me is eligible we both posted at 639
