I went and played at the Hollywood Casino in Joliet, Illinois. I played for 2 hours, and made about $40. I'm satisfied with it. As one person commented, it was probably around 75 hands. So I made, what, 12.5BB/100?
No real major tricky spots. Hit a nice flush with Q3 from the BB against a calling station....had a pair of queens as an overpair to the board on a raise and 2 call PF board...
Both tables I sat at were limpfests, with maybe one out of every 3 hands, a big raise from late position or the blinds to about 7.5X. I still struggle a bit with how to play against those tables, as you tend to get 2-3 callers of the 5 that have limped. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
