Making Pigeon Poker is no problem at Las Vegas casinos

Kevin F. uses his nickname, PokerFitz. That seems quite fitting for a person who loves to play poker, which he does most of the day in Las Vegas – and wins a large amount of the time.

Background: Kevin was born in the Bronx, started playing poker for pre-teens and is currently 71 years old and completely retired.

Stud was a game at that time. Kevin and some of his friends played on lawn chairs to earn coins. It brings back the good old days of my early days playing poker in Boston, unless we play for money. He worked during the Vietnam War, and often played poker after working hours. After working for a team member for 36 years, until you retire to even more enjoy playing poker, visit an BAMBUQQ.

In 2000, PokerFitz retired to Las Vegas, where he played Texas hold’em almost every day.

I met PokerFitz over the Internet when he responded to my last column, “Muck or still? Every player’s dilemma, ”in the February 20 issue of Gaming Today. If you don’t remember, it was the hand I was given pocket 10 of Button time. Before the pre-flop action got to me, there were three pay increases. So I have to call 4-bet to always see it doesn’t work.

In the column, I state my facts to ultimately decide to cancel 10-10. Apparently, the unsuccessful fell: 10-A-10.

If I lived in, I would make a quad forty some 10! Besides, enemies with pocket Aces, grab a pot with Aces loaded with several tens. Unless the big pot I’m about to pick up, it could be the Ugly Beat Jackpot of over $ 16,000 to give! “Geez,” I asked: “Am I making the mistake of not calling?”

My decision to write this column about PokerFitz is not due to his response to this question, but some other things he needs to mention.

He commented on my column initially where I wrote about the fees for playing. As it turns out, in Las Vegas, that and even higher than at our local casino in Southern California: $ 5 to rake in + $ 2 in promo fare + $ 1 (or maybe more) to shop to dealers. That raises up to $ 8 per hand, or about $ 240 per hour; and the figure for each player (9 on the table) averages around $ 27 / hour (the more if the table is short-handed or if more than 30 hands are awarded per hour).

Play during, you name it, seven hours during the session, your fare is about $ 189 for that session! At that cost-of-play, “It’s hard to win all the time,” PokerFitz says. Correctly.

As it turns out, PokerFitz has solved this problem by playing against the many travelers in Las Vegas the so-called “Poker Pigeons” (they play mostly bad starting hands). He played in Mirage, Flamingo, Excalibur and Sam’s Town. He likes the fact that “every five days, someone new comes into the game.”

A large number of these tourists are carrying enormous amounts of money, and are “arriving to play.” They don’t live in pots with sluggish, marginal hands. And they do a lot of hunting – call bets and stay in the pot with only a few outs to tie to the hands that are likely to take the pot if they get really lucky. I kept explaining: “Chaser is sure to lose.”

Besides, with infrequent visits to Las Vegas, these “Pigeon” had never been a “loyal customer,” until they found out quite a bit about their enemy’s playing character – only what they could experience that day (if they were skilled enough. ). For skilled players, that advantage (“edge”) matters.

I would bet PokerFitz never suffered from Alzheimer’s.
