Tournament Weekend Trip Report

Trip Report - Postal/Federal Employee Tournament, Chicagoland
(tl;dr late 30s guy who used to be good, but now bowls once a week due to having family and busy career enjoys moderately successful tournament weekend)
I was part of a group of 80 people from Central Ohio entering the 1st weekend of the postal tournament. I enjoy this tournament every year because my friends bowl in it, and because of average caps, Thanks to the caps, i am one of the better players in this field, as opposed to scratch tournaments, where the field has a huge edge over me.
With us bowling first shift for singles/doubles on Saturday and team event on Sunday, I figured I could get away with just the Halo and my spare ball, but I brought a 5 ball arsenal just in case. After all, I prefer to change lines, speed, and hand position over making a ball change, unless it’s obvious that the ball is too much/not enough for the lane conditions.
After a 6 hour drive and a +$1000 poker session (2/5 NL) at Horseshoe Hammond on Friday night, I settled into my hotel around 1 am and quickly went to bed knowing I had to check in before 8:30 squad.
Around 7:45 am after some strong coffee from and a sausage, egg, and cheese croissant from Dunkin Donuts, I roll my equipment into the beautiful 84 lane Stardust Lanes in Addison, Illinois. After getting in $200 worth of brackets for singles/doubles, I settled into my lanes for 10 minutes of practice and I could tell right away that the modified house shot was very favorable to straighter players. The back ends were really jumpy and the oil was relatively flat between 15 and 25, but there was plenty of play on the outside lines. (This is good for an old tweener like me)
I settled in playing around 12 board at the arrows out to 9, and around 16.5/17 mph. My first 2 games were nothing but strikes and 10 pins. I was a little frustrated with carry, but managed to put together 238 and 247, an ideal start for brackets.
3rd game of singles I whiffed a 10 pin early, left a 4-9, and knew I had to relax or I would fall apart. I decided to look a little further down the lane to move the breakpoint a bit further, and I managed to salvage a 204, but was disappointed i couldn’t get 700 (as well as a few more bracket wins).
1st game of doubles, my partner shoots 270 and I shoot 248. This game was one of the highlights of the weekend for me. It was around 10:45 am and I was already 4 beers deep and feeling amazing. Game 2 he goes 236 and I go 213 as my thumb starts swelling. Game 3 I bottom out and shoot 182. Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. My partner shoots a good series in the 720 range, and I only get 631. I hate making excuses, but my thumb really got in the way as I am now used to bowling only 3 games and leaving the alley.
I spend the afternoon taking a long nap as I often do after day drinking. Then the team meets up at a Greek restaurant for dinner. I had plans to go to the Tigers-White Sox game, but it is snowed out. So a bunch of us decide to hit the casino. After the +1k poker session the night before, I’m determined to not give it back, so I mostly spectate. I end up -150 in blackjack and Pai Gow. Glad I didn’t chase that 150, that’s where the trouble starts.
Today I thought we started team event at 10:30 but apparently we started at 10. I get a call from my doubles partner at 9:57 that we have 3 minutes of practice left. I was already driving there, but I pick up the pace and skip the Dunkin’ Donuts trip.
I get there when the 3rd bowler on my team is up in the 1st frame, and I am anchor, so I didn’t miss any frames. (Not sure if the rule is I would have to take zeroes for missed frames, or I would get until the 4th/5th frame to show up. Glad I didn’t have to find out.) After some stretching, I throw a flush strike and yell “who needs practice!” to my team as they roll their eyes.
I go spare, spare, and the last 9 off the sheet for 268 that game. Fortunately they let you get in pots and brackets until 10 minutes after starting, and my 268 is good for 2nd place tie in scratch and 2nd all to myself in handicap pot. Score!
2nd game I grind out a 202 and finish with 4 in a row after realizing the left lane is playing tighter than the right lane. 3rd game I start out with the front 7, then throw my left lane line on the right lane for an 8/, and get mad at myself for the mental lapse. I strike in the 9th, leave a 4-9 in the 10th and only get 1 of them for a disappointing 244. Never did ball change from the Halo. The oil must have been really high quality as I only moved 3-4 boards total. I did get faster as the day went on as well.
Scores: 689, 631, 714, 2034 all events Brackets: In for 300, out for 525 (+225) Jackpots: In for 40, out for 165 (+125) Casino: +850 Events: Probably won’t cash singles, should cash doubles due to having a great partner, won’t cash team due to team not doing well. TBD in 5 weeks.
All in all, a very fun weekend with great friends and a great escape from reality. I feel like I could have done better, given the fact that the lane conditions were well-suited to my game, but I can’t complain about my performance at all. Looking forward to next year’s event in Indy already.
If you enjoy bowling, travel and compete in some tournaments. It’s great for the overall health of the game, and it will help you as a player. You will either get paid or get experience. Either is a good result.

Poker table

I started playing a bit of poker with the fellas, and decided to try my luck at a casino. Here is my question: what are the lights/buttons in the middle of the table? I had no idea what specific buttons did, but I'm fairly certain they were used in the game and the dealer was referring to them . It became stressful, lost all my buy in and left bc I felt stupid . I tried googling it, but found nothing . Not a tournament, Texas hold 'em, horseshoe (ATM) casino, Ohio.

Competition in a poker room vs a casino?

Ok, I'm TDY to Dayton Ohio and have the itch to play cards. I've played in casinos and home games for the bulk of my playing. Only cash games though.
There is a dedicated small poker room (& social club?) About 15 minutes from my hotel called Ruggles Club (no rake, but a $15-$25 fee to buy in). There is also a Jacks Casino (formerly Horseshoe) in Cincinnati. Both offer a 1/2 NLH and tournaments.
My question is do you think the level of play is going to be harder at a smaller dedicated room versus a casino? My thought process is that a small dedicated room in an average size town is going to have the same group of people that know how each other play and can use that to their advantage and my detriment where as the chances of that are smaller at a casino in a larger city like Cincinnati.
What are your thoughts or opinions?

Time passes so quickly, that you forget how much Cincinnati has changed from the early 2000's to Today.

Cincinnati Circa 2001: http://www.visualphotos.com/photo/2x2675357/an-aerial-view-of-cincinnati-ohio-shows-cinergy-field-along-the-ohio-river.jpg
No Bengals stadium. No National Underground Museum. No Banks. No Smale Riverfront Park. No Giant GE global Operation Center HQ Just one big empty parking lot.
As you can see from the skyline no Great American Skyscraper we have today.
Over the Rhine was considered the most dangerous neighborhood in all of America, and the riots were still so fresh in people's minds. You would have to be foolish to step in OTR during the early 2000's.
Northside wasn't the booming neighborhood it is today. It was neighborhood that was infested with rundown buildings and crime.
There was no horseshoe casino. Newport on the Levee was still yet to Open.
Only transportation was a bus or walking. No red bikes, No street cars.
Cincinnati Circa 2015: http://i.imgur.com/8NLpmrt.jpg
There's a still long way to go, no doubt. But one can't help but notice the progress over the last 5 years and go, "wow".
I always lived by the philosophy that everything in life is about positive and negative momentum. And right now, Cincinnati has strides of positive momentum on its side.
One can't help but ask, what kind of progress we will see in 2030? Will there finally be light rail from CVG to downtown, to Cincinnati's suburbs?
Will Over the Rhine finally be fully restored to it's former and past glory? Will Cincinnati continue to grow population wise, and be filled with new skyscrapers. I like the future were heading towards. Everything isn't positive, there's still alot of crime and poverty that needs to be solved, but I have faith things will get better.
Until then, a toast to progress. And a toast for continued growth and prosperity for the urban core.

Coming to Cincinnati for the All Star Game? Some hopefully helpful tips

I didn't see a post like this but then again I didn't see anyone ask for one either. Anyway, if you're coming to Cincinnati for the ASG and have never been here before, you've probably got some typical traveler questions, like "Where do I eat?" and "What's there to do besides the ASG stuff?"
So first, welcome to Cincinnati! Given the events are downtown, this post will mostly stay local to the immediate area. There's plenty of things to do in the region but chances are you're mostly looking to stay downtown. If you want to venture further out, feel free to ask questions.
To start, if you need help going from event to event, look down! There should be a green path laid out for you to get from place to place. This picture is from last year's event at Target Field. The Fan Fest and ballpark here in Cincy are roughly 8 blocks apart.
Places to See Here is a map of the general downtown area. I've circled a few places of note and pointed out where FanFest is located relative to all the rest.
The immediate area around the ballparks is what we call "The Banks" along the riverfront. You'll find a pretty neat park (the green area south of the ballpark at the bottom of the picture) with some fountains and plenty of green space. There's also an indoor carousel about a block west of GABP. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is a block north of the carousel (circled on the map). The circle in the middle of map represents Fountain Square, which you can use as a point of reference for getting around. It has a cool, super old fountain on it (cool as far as fountains go, I guess), and various restaurants/bars in close proximity. On the wikipedia page you can see the Tyler Davidson fountain itself goes back to 1871 (and is on the US NRHP), although no longer on its original site.
There's a casino downtown (not in the picture above) just north of the ballpark. If you take Broadway north its about a 5-10 minute walk.
Just west of downtown is the Union Terminal Museum Center. It's technically walkable but I would take a bus or a taxi/UbeLyft or something.
North of downtown is an area called Over-The-Rhine (OTR for short) that is in the midst of revitalization. It has a wide variety of bars and restaurants, and is home to Findlay Market which is the origination point of our Opening Day Parade. It's also a really nice farmers market. OTR also has a strong brewing history, and many microbreweries dot the landscape. Ask any local and they'll no doubt be able to point you to their favorite.
And of course, right at GABP is the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum. You can learn all about the history of our Redlegs right at the park itself. And speaking of Redlegs history, if you're interested in viewing the site that Crosley Field once occupied, I hear there is some kind of shuttle service running back and forth. I regret to tell you that the site is no longer home to the park, but MLB/Reds are doing something at the site. I couldn't find good details on what, unfortunately.
Places to Eat/Drink Around the ballpark at the Banks area are a lot of places to grab a bite to eat. In addition to chains like Jimmy Johns, Ruth Chris, Toby Keith's I Love This Bar, and Yardhouse, you'll find The Holy Grail bar, their sister Italian restaurant Santo Graal next door, Tin Roof, CRAVE, Jefferson Social, and Moerlein Lager House. For those unadventurous types, there's a Wendys just north of GABP on 4th between Main and Sycamore.
Up on Fountain Square, you'll find Chipotle, Pot Belly sandwiches, Rock Bottom Brewery, Panera, Dunkin Donuts, and two local favorites, Servatii Pastry and Graeter's Ice Cream. Southeast of the square you'll see a Currito (burrito place that I happen to love). On 6th just east of the square is a strip of restaurants/bars (like Sotto, Boca, Silver Ladle, Pi Pizzeria to name a few) and a Starbucks for those needing their fix (there is also a Starbucks closer to the path from FanFest to GABP at 4th and Vine). On Walnut just north of 6th are a few restaurants and bars, like Nicholson's Pub, Jeff Ruby's Steakhouse, Nada (mexican), Scene Lounge (bar), and The Righteous Room (bar).
At Findlay Market are a whole variety of places to eat, but my favorite is Eli's Barbecue. Eli's is cash/check only I believe.
Edit: A short walk across the river into Kentucky is Newport on the Levee, where there's a ton of bars and restaurants as well. Hofbrauhaus is a pretty popular beer garden. There's a cool aquarium over there too. There's a Gameworks on the Levee if that's your kind of entertainment. There's a bar I like called Beer Sellar as well, has a huge selection of beer on tap. There is a pedestrian bridge just east of Great American Ballpark, past US Bank Arena, the Taylor-Southgate bridge.
This is totally not an exhaustive list. Ask anyone local and they can probably rattle off a dozen more places to eat or drink. Finally, for those willing to try the much-maligned Cincinnati-style chili, there is a Skyline at 7th and Vine, as well as 4th and Broadway. Grab a 3 way (spaghetti, chili, cheese), a 4 way (with onions or beans), or a 5 way (with onions and beans) or just a cheese coney. There are lots of local chili parlors, and there are practically turf wars when it comes to people's favorites.
At/In the Stadium At the northwest corner of the stadium (near the main gates) are a series of statues honoring former Reds greats, from Joe Nuxhall and Ted Kluszewski, to Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan. Also in this area is the only team shop accessible without entrance to the ballpark itself. Further towards the river (viewable from outside the park and accessible from inside) is a rose garden. The white rose in the center of this garden represents where Pete Rose's 4192nd hit landed, back when Riverfront Stadium was around.
Inside the park from the main gates you'll see two cool mosiacs: one of the 1869 Red Stockings, and one of the Big Red Machine. Once seated, in right center field are the power stacks. I don't know what is planned for the ASG, but when a Reds pitcher strikes out an opponent, the power stacks emit plumes of fire. When a Reds player hits a home run, fireworks are launched from them. These stacks are a reminder of the steamboats that were very common along the riverfront in the 19th century (you'll probably see a few on the river if you look out that way). On each stack are 7 baseball bats, totally 14, symbolizing Pete Rose, as MLB prohibits the Reds from displaying his number.
You'll find souvenir shops on the terrace level, on the first base side of right and the third base side of left. There's also some shops behind home plate on the terrace level as well, towards third, including one that sells game-used items like baseballs, helmets, jerseys, and so on.
On the first and third base sides of the terrace level are two bars serving craft beers. The bar on the first base side also serves Bulleit bourbon.
Inside the park you can try the "hidden" food of GABP: the legendary SkyRosa. While you used to be able to order it straight up, now you have to build it yourself. At the LaRosa's (our local pizza chain), purchase a slice of pizza (cheese or pepperoni at your choosing). Then head to a Skyline and get a cheese coney. Put the coney on the pizza, wrapping the coney like a taco. Eat.
That's the end of my super post here. I hope this is helpful for anyone coming to town for the next week. If you have any questions please post and I will try to answer to the best of my ability.
ADD 1: tommyturntup highly recommends checking out the Covington and Mainstrasse. It's a walk across the Roebling Bridge, which terminates on the Ohio side right at Smale Park next to the ballpark. Speaking of, did you know the Roebling Suspension bridge was designed by John Roebling, the designer of the Brooklyn Bridge? At the time of its completion, it was the longest suspension bridge in the world. The Carew Tower, opposite Fountain Square, was the model for New York's Empire State Building.

Bitcoin Casino Card

I’m hoping someone can help me figure out an issue I’m having. About three years ago a friend was given a card with some sort of bitcoin redemption code on it from what used to be the Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland, Ohio. He was told he would be able to redeem it at the casino whenever he wished to. Since then the casino was bought out. I have called them hoping they would have any information on the card itself, but they were unable/unwilling to help. The card itself is plain white, plastic, and is about the size of a credit card. The code on it is numeric and contains several characters such as the dollar sign and the yen sign. Is there any way to generate a QR code from the numeric code so he can deposit the bitcoin into a wallet?

Derby Diary 140/AMA

So I had an amazing Derby trip. So I decided to do a Diary of just what went on plus an AMA for anyone who wants to know how we did it.
Day one: We left from Columbus, OH on thursday. We stay every year in Covington, KY just over the bridge from Ohio. We went big this year and rented a limo for our thursday night party. First stop: Jeff Ruby's The Precinct. A yearly tradition of one of the best steaks around. Pricey? yes. Minimum steak price is like 45 dollars. But really worth it. The Freddie salad is almost as good, plus the mac and Cheese is amazing.
From there we go to Hollywood casino in Lawerenceburg, IN. Next year we probably will go to the newer HorseShoe casino. Lost about 100 dollars playing 3 card pokeblackjack. Had so much fun.
Drunken night ended up at WaffleHouse. around 3 am.
Day 2: We recovered from the night before the whole day. Got a burger at Terry's Turf Club. It wasn't the best I've ever had, but not the worst either.
Night out on Mainstrauss Village for some drinks and Fish and Chips at the Cock and Bull pub. Ended the night at Arnie's club at Newport on the levee. Another drunken Waffle House trip.
Day 3: Derby day!!! Got an early start, left the Hotel at 9 am. Made it to our parking place on Evelyn ave, the Baptist church around 1015. Got into Churchhill around 1030 just in time to bet race 3.
Our seats were amazing. Section 120. Got a Lobster Roll, which I look forward to every year.
My friend and I were splitting .50 trifecta box tickets for 6 dollars each. we picked 4 horses off the DRF and the Racing form I got for 3 dollars. We ended up hitting two tri's during the day and split the winnings. 73 dollars on one and 32 dollars on the other.
Before the Derby I placed the horseracing trifecta ticket and placed all my bets. I bet 106 on my personal bets. We all picked a horse and placed a 1 dollar superfecta box ticket for 24 dollars.
The race before the Derby was amazing. Wise Dan refused to lose. I bet against him on a couple tickets so at the start of the race I was rooting against him...by the top of the stretch I was screaming for him to win. Gutsy performance. Soooo Good.
Derby time!!!!
All four of us picked Chrome. We have never all picked the same horse. I usually put 30 across the board on my derby horse. But this year I only did 10. I used the rest of the money on exotic tri's. I also picked 5 long shot horses and put 2 across the board on them. It paid off. I had 17 wps that paid around 40 dollars while my chrome ticket paid 86. I ended up 20 up on the derby.
My friend picked this exotic tri from the DRF. It was a 42 dollar ticket that paid 865 total. So excited for him.
After we cashed our tickets we had an old boss who goes every year to the derby. He was in a section over from us that costs 25k every five years just for the seat license to buy the tickets. Right on the track, front row. He invited us over to watch the last two races. So we jumped the barrier over to his box. It was spectacular. We fed the escort horses, or outrider horses. Got access to the second floor grandstand which is crazy. We bet the last two races. The last race started right in front of us. Pretty amazing.
Time to Leave the track:
We had no idea how to get out. We were in a section that is not accessible to normal people. So we took these steps down from the section we were squatting in. It led us to the path the horses take to get on the track. We were part giddy kids, part scared we were going to get arrested. The road opened up to the Paddock!! At this point there were no horses, only about 10 people, a few camera crews filming wrap ups and us. We spotted Baffert and my friend got a picture with him. Took some pics and got out of there. The security were shaking their heads as we left, they knew we weren't supposed to be there.
A quick stop to get a pic on the red carpet and we were gone!!!
Here is an Album of the pics we took:
http://imgur.com/a/jQM1S
AMA: ask me whatever you want! how we did it? what it cost? anything is on the table..
Thanks!!

Play a hand with me? I'll update with what I did alongside what comments say to do.

I was playing in a $1-$2 No-Limit Hold'Em game in the new Horseshoe Casino in Cleveland, Ohio. I thought the casino was pretty nice, but there were... windows!gasp. I sat down with $160, wearing my Michigan hat in enemy territory of course, and this hand happened within the first half hour, when I had about $210 in front of me. Come along for the ride!
Hero is in middle position. Main villain is directly to my right, with about $150. I haven't been around long, but he seems to be tight with an occasional marginal hand. Effective stacks ~$150. 9 players, which was a full ring at this casino, which I did not prefer. That should be all the information needed, I hope.
Pre-Flop: Hero, in middle position, is dealt J J. 2 folds, Hero raises to $10. V1, in MP2, calls $10, 2 folds, button calls $10, 1 fold, BB calls $8. (4 players, $41 pot to the flop).
Edit/saved for posterity: In fact, I'll quickly add my thoughts, being that I/we are first in the action. When there is a flush draw and I find that I may have the second-best hand, I will often bet to isolate and to feel out where I am in the hand. If I have the best hand, like if the Q had been a J, I would bet more because I prefer to take down the pot or give bad odds for a flush draw. Here I knew someone likely had a queen, with 4 in the hand, and any reraise would see an immediate fold from me. Finally, a leak I tend to have is thinking in terms of BB sizes or avg bet size rather than pot size after the flop, which might become apparent.
Update: While responses were varied, most people seem to agree that I should check and not c-bet this flop. Maybe call a smaller bet but fold while I'm behind. The following is how the street and turn card ended up, so let's play it how I did (albeit foolishly):
Flop: 5 7 Q. BB checks. Hero bets $15. V1 calls. Button and BB fold. (Heads-up, $71 pot to the turn).
Yes, I agree that this was a bad bet. Even during the hand (after the street, obviously), I knew it was stupid multiway. If it had been heads-up, it would probably have been a good idea (albeit still very low). I had pretty much planned to cut my losses and check/fold unless I was given significantly good odds for a backdoor flush or some kind of read. Then this happened:
(Kept for posterity): holy shit I just got extremely lucky after making a bad play, time to extract value. Your thoughts? My read: I have the best hand now, V1 has either FD or two-pair (the only hand I've seen him showdown in the half hour I've been there... weak evidence, I know). I then wish to give poor odds in case of FD, value in case of 2p.
(Kept for posterity): obvious shove, but what the hell is he raising with? This is 1/2... does he think I'm bluffing? Does he have QJ, or a really overvalued top-two-pair (edit: top at the time of the flop, obviously QJ is now ttp)? Other thoughts at the time: "Am I really about to get paid off for two stupid plays in the same hand? How lucky can I get? I do not deserve to win this hand."
Thoughts? Reads?
Update: Turn: J. Hero bets $45. V1 raises to $100. Hero raises all-in. V1 instantly calls all-in for $125. (Heads-up, $321 pot).
River: 3. Showdown: Hero shows set of Jacks. V1 turns over Q Q for a set of Queens. Result: V1 wins pot of $321.
Cooler'd. Did anyone see this coming, besides CardCounter0? Even though he made the read, it is pretty obvious when I'm posting the hand that something crazy happened. I never assume set-over-set because to me the chance is very slim and almost negligible. If I have a set, I read for every other hand first. I would not make this laydown on a QQ read and in fact said "Do you have QJ?" right before he unearthed this monstrosity. I played this hand badly in many ways, and I think the universe was trying to tell me that by making me pay dearly for it. Then it laughed in my face by dealing me AA a few hands later when I had about $50 and someone shoved preflop with 99, when all I could do was double up on scraps and choke it down.
Also, I realize the guy did not exactly get lucky with his hand. He had top set and it remained the best hand. The fact that I had a lower set on the turn makes him lucky, though, and makes me turn from extremely lucky to extremely unlucky (that we both had these pocket pairs). I only wish I could have the same thing happen in reverse, because holy shit.
I wish he would have fucking reraised the flop, damn it.
