You should definately go check it out.  Even if you just play for a little while, its so damn close to us NoVa'ers and the drive is kinda nice.  I forgot where you live but its only and hour and ten minutes from me and im in Gainesville.  If you are close to Herndon/Reston its like 45 minutes.

I have lost too much from poker at the casino..
Plus, games are too personal to play at the casino too. You aren't winning the casinos money, you're winning someone elses money. I suggest anyone not serious about poker games just keep it to playing with your buddies and friends or online. If you go to the casino, just hit up the tables that go against house.

the only reason to play poker at the casinos is that you are not playing against the house...

finally went to the Borgata in Atlantic City and played me some poker...

won a few hundred...

noticed that they have 1-1 no limit now... $30 min and $100 max buy in..
wonder if it would be worth playing...

Yikes i imagine that a 1/1 NL game with a buy in like that would just be an all-in fest.  A fun table to sit at if you just wanted to push some chips around and hope to get lucky, but damn frustrating if you were playing seriously. 
 
As for the Omaha discussion, personally i love the game.  Its a great way to learn the discpline of laying down big hands.  Its damn near impossible for new players to lay down any boat, or reasonable flush, so you can get paid off quite a bit at just about any limit.  I like it even more because its a drawing game, drawing to monster hands is so much fun!

I play on FullTilt.  Why is PokerStars so much more widely used on here? 
 
I typically play Hold 'Em tournaments but when playing cash games I play Omaha H/L Pot Limit. 
First of all, I don't even like you. Second of all, I don't even drink...

i think the consensus is that fulltilt has better players in general and that since pokerstars and partypoker are more casual player oriented, that the people wanting easy money go there for that reason alone.

I chose pokerstars because it had the most players and it still has the most players.

Yesterday, I went all in with pocket aces and lost to pocket 3's cuz the flop was J,9,3 with no help on the turn or river. That flop was the ultimate mood swing. It happens...
is it just me? or is common sense not that common.

ouch, that's poker though. Did you go all in on the flop or pre? If it was all in, how much was it? Just wondering.

So you were holding A-K and the flop came up A-K-x, right?
 
If the last Ace showed up on the turn, didn't you then have a full house?
 
 
No matter where you go, there you are.

hate playing limit, that's where all the chasing happens. I am not bashing it or anything since my uncle makes a living on limit poker at the casino, but man, playing limit is where anything goes. Dead

I generally play hold'em in a league (World Tavern Poker) or omaha hi/lo on Pokerstars; however, I play in a dealers choice home game usually once a week where they play games like low Chicago, follow the queen, hold'em, omaha, black jack, in between, stud, jacks or better & trips to win, etc. We have been looking for some new games... anyone got any suggestions?

there are MANY card games out there. but the ones I know are Korean.
They probably have American varients of it.

Hearts, Spades..
then the Korean ones: Cho da re, hulla, mighty..

BTW Mighty is the game of all games.. freakin great, like a combination of Spades, hearts and gin rummy all together..

I usually hold bout 3 big tourneys a year with 50 dollar buy in and 1 re-buy. Got a buddy who manages Chilies so he caters all the food for dirt cheap. Biggest I had was 30 people in my house and smallest bout 18. It can be draggin at times but I am like you .... I get tired and bored and just go all.

^You guys should play live games instead of tournaments. I personally like tournaments over live unless it's some cheap limit texas hold em.

Haven't played texas hold 'em in months. I think i am beginning to forget how to play. I Have been watching back episodes of this years world series and don't even know who this years champion is yet.
