Hello everyone-just curious if there is any NOR players here in south Florida......looking to meet some new friends

Uh, that would be me, but we've already talked about that in the PM's!!

We do have several players in the south Florida area though and evidently Hollywood and Tampa are the two major places for the guys to play. I'm the lone eagle down at the Immokalee Hard Rock.

Yeah I go to the Hard Rock in Hollywood as well. Perhaps I'll make the drive to immokelee

No need to go our of your way to hit the Immokalee casino. Hollywood and Tampa are much bigger and nicer places.

And besides that, Immokalee is in the middle on nowhere, literally!

But it's the closest one to me by at least 30 minutes of drive time so it's the one I go to when I need a B&M fix.

i think a seminar in South florida would be very well received. We have 3 casinos in a small area and plenty of players here.

Yeah! I've turned down invitations so many times that Florida has about given up on me. Besides, I need a little time on the beach. Not a lot of beaches in Arkansas. I'm thinking about leaving early and driving down.

Yeah, but Tampa is on the wrong ocean. What's on the Atlantic side where I was born?

The Seminole Hardrock at Fort L. has a big hotel. But I keep hearing horror stories about the preshuffled cards at the hardrocks plus their weird shuffle machines that they seem fond of doing card tricks with!

What about 2 deck BJ there???

It's funny you say that cause I've been wondering about that myself for a while...what did you hear?

I'm hearing about 15 min. delays waiting for shuffle machines to finish. I've never heard of a shuffle machine taking longer than the prior shoe to complete. Are they forgetting to turn the machine on? That would be extremely amateurish. Or, what are they trying to concoct that takes so long??? Very fishy!

I know casinos cheat but they aren't usually that obvious.

All I know is I used to win big playing basic strategy and good money management. Then 2 years ago it became impossible to win. I get 17 they get 18 I get 18 they get 20 I get 19 they get 20. I open another hand or too and still lose- no fun at all. That's why I play baccarat now. The cards are hand shuffled in high limit and machine shuffled everywhere else. I have had them tell me they are waiting for machine to finish but that's only because they said they forgot to start it or it jammed.

Lets get a nor seminar here then go to hard rock....

I yell "winner winner chicken dinner on all naturals"

Basic Strategy only works with random cards. The casinos know this. You probably got a good shuffle when they first opened. Spreading to multiple hands increases clumping and decreases Basic Strategy's hit rate.

I suspect things got tougher as they trained their employees. But I've never heard of machines jamming or forgetting to turn them on. At least not in the last 15 years. Too many stories about the hardrocks. I think I'd rather take my chances with an unknown quantity.

Yeah, perfect! Right in the middle of everything. Just be sure they have Bac.

Whoops, it's not a casino! Can't get comped. But we probably could get a seminar room there. How far is this from that Fort L. Hardrock?
