So the poker gods weren't with me today at Lucky Chances. I lost my whole buy-in in less than an hour, thanks in part to a guy who called my pre-flop raise with 9-3 off-suit (who does that?!) and then he flopped a full house, 3's full of nines!
So I was steaming a bit, and left the table to go home, but decided to try re-couping some of my losses at the blackjack table first. Yes, they have Blackjack at Lucky Chances. Its just like Vegas Blackjack, but you play against a third-party banker and you pay a $1 fee to the house to provide "dealer services".
It wasn't long before I plopped down a $50 bet in an effort to make a fast buck before leaving.
I get dealt a 4-4 and the dealer has a 6 showing. Split-em!
I get another 4. Split-em again! Now I have $150 on the table. Not what I had planned.
On my first 4, I asked for a 7 and got it. Double down! I get a 8 and have 19.
On my second 4, I got a 6. Double down again! I get a 10 and have 20.
On my third 4, I got another 6. Double down a third time! I get an Ace for 21!
So I've got $300 on the table. Definitely not what I planned and my wallet is now dry.
The dealer turns over a 10 for 16, and hits and gets a 10 for bust!
Jackpot, $300! Time to go home.
