Speaking of playing live, at Winstar Casino in Oklahoma, they have a deal on Tuesdays between like 10AM and 3PM, that if your pocket aces get cracked and you call down to the river, you get $100. I know quite a few guys who play $4/$8 limit and $5/$10 limit who go up there on Tuesday specifically for that reason. Either they are going to win a big pot, or get the $100 and not lose anything on the hand. It's a pretty good deal and since your odds of picking up A/A is 1 in 220, over the course of 5 hours at 40-50 hands per hour, there are decent odds you will pick up A/A once per trip on average.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
