Living in Lousiana has given me an opportunity to experience the best of poker: real, live poker rooms. Sure, online poker can be fun and profitable, but it can't match the thrill of throwing chips on the felt in a casino.
A few weeks ago, I told you about my trip to the Grand Casino in Coushatta. This time, I'm headed to the Paragon Casino Resort in Marksville, LA.
And this time, there's a little something extra in it for me. Next Tuesday and Wednesday are "media celebration" days at the casino. That means I'm staying for free, eating for free and drinking for free. From 9am-12pm on Wednesday, there's "free play at Golf-Slot-Table Games." I'm not sure what exactly that means... but it's gotta be good.
The only trade off is a one hour "media conference" on Tuesday afternoon. I think I can handle that. The rest of the time, you'll likely find me in the 11 table poker room. I've spent very little money on anything since I moved here (still no cable or internet at home), so I've got a nifty little bankroll to take with me.
Wish me luck! I'll have a full report when I get back!
