    [QUOTE=Manxfeeder;1518183[

    I haven't played poker since college and I wasn't very good at it.




    No problem. I'm always open for a friendly game. How many credit cards do you have that are active?

    IMHO thats why the "craps" table is a better option. the "pass line" be is one of the lowest take outs in the casino games. and when one backs the "pass line" with a "odds" bet it reduces it even more. i watched one guy be a "right bettor"(against the 7) and "wrong better"(with the 7) at the same time! i always play the "right". And there are so many possibles. wife make fun saying "Gee. the seven is good then the seven is bad good- bad-good-bad"

    As Sgt Bilko said, "I lost both my parents while I was very young. But what a craps game!"

    No. I don't play poker. But I'm a mean cribbage player.

    Blackjack used to be the best odds for making some $$$, but now there are too many cards.

    If you enjoy cribbage, you may want to try this. Seriously!

    I like poker. But Bridge is much better. The chess of cards.

    I played poker for hours with my friend today. But we play poker with fake money so it is not gambling. Gambling is bad. Even worse than drinking. Lol

    Interesting variation! I'll have to see if some of my opponents are willing to give it a try.

    Still play cribbage regularly but can't get a 4 for bridge, there was one other bridge player here but he died last year, sometimes play on line, at one time I was playing bridge two or three times a week had a regular partner in Helsinki. A company I worked for back in the 70' & 80s had a bridge club and used to enter teams in the local business houses league and also in EBU regional competitions, we actually won a cup one year.

    I sometimes play cribbage patience, deal 2 hands, of 6 cards, discard 2 from each to a box, turn the top card of the pack, score both hands and box, put those cards including the turn up to one side, then deal two fresh hands, repeat, score each pair of hands and box, when you reach the end of the pack you will have done this 4 times, the target is to score over 100 from the 4 pairs of hands plus boxes. Passes the time and should help improve your play.
