Yes, like my profile photo says, I DO have a little Captain in me! : )
I don't know why, but I seem to have a natural affinity for poker. I rarely lose. At times I wonder what it might be like to become a professional poker player, but then I think the novelty and fun would go away. Besides, I like my current day job and though poker is fun, I don't REALLY like to gamble. Who knows if pitted against professionals I would find that I actually suck! Anyway, I do occasionally lose and I often break even (for all intents and purposes, like I quit after a few hours only up say $20...but that pays for lunch, right?) but more often than not I double my money. This was the case for me once again on this trip. I can't remember how my buddies fared, but I doubled my money twice. $200 free money is always nice. Nothing big, but a win is a win! : ) Reno is a fun, laid back version of Vegas...a nice change of pace every once in a while. I used to head over here often when I lived in the Bay Area.
