Not exactly up-to-the-minute news, I know. But until today, I hadn't played there since last July. The room has undergone some minor renovations since then. It's now separated from the main casino floor by glass windows, giving the area a more closed-in feel. The sign-in desk has moved from the front-left side of the room to the front-right. And, in a move that must have been greatly celebrated by all who complained about the distance of the nearest urinals when Rivers opened, restrooms are now available on the room's back-right side.
I had a nice little $1/3 NLHE session today. Won $190 in three hours, mostly thanks to one hand. Limped in from early with A♦-4♦. No raisers behind. Flop: K♦-J♦-9♦. I checked. Unfortunately, so did the five players sitting behind me with cards. Turn: 7♣. I bet $12. A friend of mine sitting on my immediate left raised to $35. Two folds, and then an older guy raised it up again to $100. I shoved for ~$180. My friend folded. Older guy called.
Well, that escalated quickly. Dealer, please don't pair the board, and, buddy, if you've got Q♦-10♦, then god bless ya.
River came the 2♦. I showed, he mucked and that was that. One big hand made the session. I should be hitting Rivers more often again now that baseball season is about to start.
