Life in the Big City

Wednesday was the last of two day shifts this week. I had fun both days, but it was pretty slow. We held on to our game until about 2pm, when the aces cracked promotion ended. We’re changing that up in the next week, so that should help get some asses in the seats.

On Tuesday Paul and I put the wheel together, but I guess that we are waiting for some signs to show up before it gets spun for real money. The deal is that you get to spin the wheel if you get your aces cracked or if you get a high hand – aces full or better I think. It will be a great promotion. You can win up to $200 on the wheel, rooms, slot play and some other stuff I forgot. I’ll update as soon as it’s up and running.

There is student frenzy here in Wendover. New folks have come to town from Brazil and Peru. I have met several students and everyone seems cool. It’s funny to see how everyone behaves around the new girls. Reminds me of high school but with adult themes. MTV should look in to this for a reality series.

Speaking of reality, the Jazz were hanging good with the lakers last night until the middle of the 3rd. Then the tires popped and the Jazz were running on empty. 6 points in the 4th quarter. I have a tough time even following the Jazz this year. For those of you that really know me, that is huge. I have been a big Jazz fan my whole life but this team stinks. Where’s Kyle Korver when you need him?

I have to mention here that Metallica and Nirvana are great bands to listen to when you write.

Back to poker, yesterday we lost our game at 2pm or so, but we got it right back up again. 4pm brought us a couple players that saved the day. Tossing money everywhere and not looking at cards until the river, stuff like that. One hand I told one of these guys it was $20 to call. (The pots got real big for a 1-5) He grabs a $20 stack of white and plops it on the Cocktail Waitresses tray behind him as a tip, then he looked at everybody and said “Guys – the dealer said twenty dollars! What was I supposed to do?” It was great and it finished my day off well. I’ll have to see how swing shift did with them.

Open invitation to all big tippers – you are welcome on my table all the time!

Working the Thursday tournament shift tonight. See you there!
