(day 4) wicked game??....

ok poker fans we are back in exciting atlantic city for the final day of our gambling adventure.

across town, our friend the lion has prevailed at harrah's before packing his bags and heading back to the pokerless reality of central pennsylvania. he looks forward to bethlehem's wind creek casino starting up poker again in early october. i know he'll be more than ready!!

me and estrella checkout of hard rock but we aren't quite ready to leave our beloved vacation destination and head back up the boardwalk, ultimately stopping at tropicana where this time i'll put my rusty limit skills to the test in a 3/6 contest.

KK has caused me a lot of grief over the years but i actually notch an early win with the cowboys. but the game turns quickly when AA flops a set but is gunned down by broadway. a J 5 2 flop looks encouraging with AJ but i'm third best to J5 and 52. down $35 the game breaks and we head back up the boardwalk with our first loss of the campaign.

along the way we decide to stop for one final meal at harry's oyster bar at bally's. i don't know the specifics but apparently the lease is up on september 26th and maybe harry's or bally's or both want to go in another direction?? anyhow harry's oyster bar was always one of our favorite stops and it will be missed.

weighed down by all the fried oysters we could eat, estrella and i slowly crawl our way back up the boardwalk. she stops at a couple shops to browse what i dub the "$2500 claimers" of fabric. one says "i'm not gay, but $20 is $20." i cringe, but estrella soldiers on, seeking the john henry of t-shirts. as chris isaak's "wicked game" plays at an adjacent shop, the young beauty running our store sways back and forth like a charmed cobra rising out of a wicker basket. i'm unsure if the real wicked game is love, poker, or even life itself? i turn toward the ocean and take a final deep breath of atlantic air.

thank you for reading.

game: -35 (3/6 limit)
year: +36 (1-1)
