I have been playing at the same place for a while now and have started losing a little. Losing in Poker is really just part of the game. I wasn't playing bad, I just had some bad beats and people getting really lucky on me. I know it should not last forever, but I figured I would try a new place.
I did some searching and found this place in Downtown. The game has only been running for a month and is run by Jason he owns a huge online poker tracking system of Poker players. It is located in a really nice area, right by the water in Downtown.

The game started out slow for me. It was a steady losing session. I got down to $40 when I finally got pocket Aces. Julia Park had raised in front of me $20, so I pushed all in for $40. Julia had pocket 88s and my Aces held up. Then 10 minutes later I get Aces again. I raise to $15 and Julia calls saying, "I have my favorite hand.." and Jason calls. The flop is Jack high. I bet out $40 and the girl instant calls and Jason folds showing someone his hand. The turn is a rag and I go all in for $21. The girl calls. She has "everyone's favorite hand" J10. My aces hold up again. Jason also had J10, good laid down... Now I am doubled up again to $160... Played a little bit more and made a few dollars more before the game ended. I only loss $37 for the 5 hr session. I consider it a minor victory for getting nothing for hours..
As a side note, guess who shows up at this poker game... My Ex.. She is working for a new company. It is a software company that rates online poker players. She does tech support and her co-workers run this game. Small world...
