Mohegan Sun

OK...I went to the poker room at the 'Mo for the first time last Saturday. I only played for a combined time of about 2 and half hours though. It can be kind of tough to get down there while trying to entertain a bachelor and a small group of people. My old high school buddy is the best man for his younger brother who is sports betting psycho (In a good degenerate way for those who like sports betting) and a professional keno player if I ever saw one. I'm not kidding I've seen this kid play up to a 100.00 for one number on Keno. He obviously had a great time. There was none of the regular stripper HiJinks going on and I have to say....I'm a little disappointed by that. It's the first bachelor party I've ever been to that I didn't see big fake knockers. Somebody from the party went to Mohegan recently and scoped out a strip joint nearby but was a little skeeved out. I'll have to go to one when I get to Las Vegas this December....hmmmmmmm??? As soon as we checked into the hotel off site we took the shuttle over to the casino. I like the 'Mo....they had a band 'Saving Abel' playing in the Wolf's Den. I wasn't in a great spot for the show but we were hanging around the area and I forgot that they actually have a couple of great songs. It was a good band to gamble with in the background. I mean the last time I was there five years ago they had KC and the Sunshine band or something similar.

.............................................

I sent a text to a couple of bloggers who were going to be around or are there all the time. Rakefeeder stopped by right after I got to the poker room. His quote was "make sure you warn me when you decide to stop by and talk OK"? I wholeheartedly agreed because every time I see him at Foxwoods he goes on tilt. I'm not sure why....but I may just be 'The Cooler'. So like I said...I only played a combined 2.5 hours....I got there around 6:30 the first time then at 12:00 the second time time around. I was amazed I actually got served alcohol at 1:30 AM. This would NEVER happen at Foxwoods. I also like the poker room atmosphere. There were typical 1-2 NLHE players at both tables...just like Foxwoods....and that is a good thing! I sort of floundered around for the time I was there but I got paid on a flopped full house no less. I was in the BB and had K-3o. Somebody in early pos. raised a measly 4.00...and when 4 people called I figured I'd call. Kh-Kx-3h on the Flop. I checked of course. There was a 7 dollar bet from the original raiser. Another call....a fold and another call. I Called of course. A nice Ace hearts fell on the turn. I checked again By this time the somebody has a flush or an A. The original raiser got spooked and checked. The other guy in late position checked...that took me by surprise. a harmless rag fell on the river...not sure it was a 5x or something. The guy in early position checked again....the guy in late position made a bet of 30....I raised to 90 and the guy who bet obv. had a K...not sure what his kicker was but he was worried I had a better one. He called after a few minutes and was surprised when I showed K-3o. BB special! people yelled! The kid just mumbled something about King Jackoff...

...............................................

We were at Michael Jordan's steak house and basically all got those massive burgers. Man those were good. We also got some cash together and got the groom to be a huge burger the size of a hubcap. That guy from Man vs. Food would have had a tough time finishing that thing. There was too much drinking to take pictures of course. After a ton of bets the groom to be made a run at the burger but could only finish half. I don't know....but I'm sure that half came up later on in the night.....After the dinner we went for more degen. casino games like Roulette. I actually bet on Black each time or one of the three rows and I was raking in the chips. Some dude from the bachelor party dumped 150.00 on #23 because we just at Jordan's steak house. #23 obv. did not come up and 150.00 goes down the drain. I made 125.00 just betting black and the rows each time. I'm not a roulette guy but it seemed pretty good odds to me. The problem was at the end of the night....after leaving the poker room at 1:30AM. I met another guy from the bachelor party at the BlackJack table. There were about 3 hours of table play and 'Helen' the evil blackjack dealer proceeded to clean us out. I usually get away from the table but I was tired and just kept betting anyway. This is why I don't play blackjack hardly ever anymore. Evil Helen was cold as ice. The guy next to me and my buddy lost a cool 3 grand. I lost about 300....but then again I started the day with 300.00. I had a cigar in my pocket and lit that up at 4:30AM...BAD IDEA!!!

I can't wait to go to Foxwoods soon......

If I had known before that you can raise a lot of money on online gambling, and at the same time have fun, I would have done this thing much earlier. Currently, he began to play Marathonbet Casino UK and is pleased with the game in slots. It happens that I win a big jackpot and it turned into a job, as I play and win every day.
