Nov 16, 2008, I hit the ripe ol age of 21.... The day after christmas was a day I had been anticipating for atleast 6 yrs... It was the day I would make my first trip to a casino..

After a long 5 hour drive from Huntsville, Al, I finally found myself Face to Face with a lifelong dream... I had gotten word from some regulars to Tunica that Hollywood was handsdown the "LUCKIEST" casino in Tunica..
Without any second thought, Hollywood would be the destination..

As I arrived fairly early in the morning (11:00), I was in Awe at the number of people at the casino, I could tell it was Jammed from the countless vehicles parked outside... I finally made it inside 30 minutes after arriving, Cutting up with the locals, and being presented with all kinds of "stuff" to buy had delayed me, But only for a bit...

Upon entrance, I felt like I was part of Oceans 11... I was quickly Id'd, perhaps its my "babyface", but no worries... I went to one of the desk and signed up for a "benefits card"..... Shortly after, I took a stroll and did some sight-seeing, mentally choosing areas I would play and lounge in.
After making the round, I decided to sit down at a slot (wheel of fortune),
spend a few bucks and drink a couple beers before I hit the tables..
After finding a cocktail waitress, I placed 100$ into the machine and On my first action ever at a casino, Netted $450... I also hit the machine for another 60$ and 135$ before my initial 100$ ran out... Without hesitation, I got my ticket from the machine and put it in my billfold, to take to the cashier later on..

Next stop was the roulette table, I am very novice on it, So I lost a bit of money fairly fast... It was not my day on the roulette, If I bet only on black 6 times in a row, It came RED, 6 times in a row... After loosing nearly 150$ at roulette, I ventured over to blackjack and procedded to be EATEN ALIVE by this dealer...... At this point, I was questioning myself for playing games I really wasnt accustomed too.. I was about to take it back to the slots, and wait for the Hold em tourney that was starting later on during the day...

On my way back to the slots,When I noticed a table had just opened up that was not opened earlier, It was called 3 card poker... Now, I had heard about 3 card poker thru some pals, but had never played it... I also did some research on it the night before.. It sounded pretty simple, so I thought "What the heck, I'll give her a whirl"... Little Did I know about the betting system of 3 card poker, with the Ante, Pair Plus, and play button..
I lost another 100$ pretty fast because I didnt understand this major part of the game... Thankfully, The 100$ I lost was a great investment, because I really got a feel for the game and how to properly play it by being very observant of the other people playing..

I had allready spent my limit, I had designated, But I forgot I had won almost 700$ from the slots... I cashed it in at the cashier, and headed straight back for the 3 card table..... Now this time, It was a completly different story, I was betting big on the pair plus and hitting, and making some sick plays of calling hands I shouldnt of been calling, But the dealer couldnt open, thus basically a push like Blackjack... I sat at that table for over 8hrs, and drunk over 15ish beers.... By the end of the day, I was up $1685, Im sure i made more than that, But I was very generous with tips.... Now I had sat at that table so long, I forgot all about the hold em tourney and by the time I finished 3 card it was time for me to head back to Alabama....

Needless to say, I allready have a free room + a free meal on my card
and came back to huntsville Up about 900$....

This experience ranks up there with loosing my virginity, Catching a 12lb largemouth bass, and running down vandals on foot who I witnessed destroy a preachers house (Just like a vigilantee)...


I cant wait to go back

Good trip report, but no actual poker?

Stay out of the pit!
