Locals vs. Tourists
I'm leaving for Vegas soon! I figure I'd blog an interesting read called: Locals vs. Tourists written by Linda R. Geenen
Here's a bit: "You've entered the game at half time or maybe it's the 3rd day or whenever you found the time to get there and get seated. The locals are grim, holding their position, after all...they're defending home turf. The tourists are jovial and reckless, throwing their chips into the pots, laughing as they pull back more and stack and stack and stack. The locals are losing... they have no cheering section and each time they lose a pot, they make comments about the tourists. They're so nasty, a referee might throw a flag on them ... but there are no referees in this battle."
Anyway, my plan is to try to take some money off of other lesser skilled tourists! And avoid heads up play with the locals. It will be nice playing in some games with more tourists. At Foxwoods, usually I'm sitting at a table with 75 to 80% local players.
