      Ok, posting this post from Domenican Republic... i'm on resort, enjoying waiting for a delayed flight back to Frankfurt and then back to Vilnius.

      Honneymoon went fine! :)

      But this post about Casino... our resort has one... and few times i saw adverts/flyers about Poker Texas Holdem...

      Guess what idea came to my head just after i saw that... "Yes!!! it's heaven... Beach, sun, drinks and... poker at nights..." :)

      I wen't to casino and guess what... noone plays poker... hmm... i guess whats the problem, then take "flyer" with rules to find out that not only manager of this casino is fish in poker, but he is fish in casino business too :)

      Noone plays poker for whole week there... this is why:

      Blinds: 20$ BB, 5$ SB (yes, bucks not cents)
      And then... most granted way to make sure noone gonna play: min buyin: 100$, and MAX: 300$

      What.. 20$ BB and 300$ max buyin... i run numbers in head to find its only 15 BB lol... not even enought for SSS :)


      WTF they are thinking?

      If they would make it 2$/1$ Blinds, 200$ max-buyin, and fixed rakes for sums they would make profit everyday... now its place for smoke :)

      Well, i guess wanted too much from casino, where BlackJack is played by shuffling decks with hands :)

      lol crazy. Like you say, they're not going to get an decent players. Sounds like they're trying to take advantage of tourists.

      btw, playing poker on your honeymoon? Brave man, but start as you mean to go on :D

      Best regards & congrats on your marriage.
