  • Harlow's Casino

    When I finished typing my Hollywood Tunica trip report, I checked my caller ID on the phone. Received a call from a buddy to inform me of the place he is working.

    Harlow's Casino opened on Friday November 23, 2007 and they have a poker room. They have 7 tables and room to add more if business will support it. Greenville MS used to have a very busy poker business until the casino started shutting the room and opening it every six months. They couldn't figure what to do. So, they alienated their customer base and everyone went to Tunica or underground games.

    I went and played LHE $3/$6 for four hours to get a feel for how things will be going. Good news is there are a cast of calling stations and walk in traffic trying to learn the game. A few young guys who have watched poker on TV.

    One example:

    A guy who will play almost any two cards. He will raise with a straight even when the board is paired or flushing, always. Any complete hand is a raising hand in his book. He will maximize value. He will also maximize his loses. Another of his antics: He will 5 bet a hand to keep someone from "buy-in the pot." This is his speech after he loses. His problem is he can't beat a bluff.

    Another late arrival to the game sits 2 to my left. If it's checked twice or limped and checked to him on the flop, he will auto-bet the turn in any position if it's checked to him (bluff). I called him with a pair of [2]'s a couple times to take down the pots.

    I played for 4 hours and cashed out $70 up, but I was getting many hands to get involved. I was up about $120 at one point but blinded back down before the game got short & I left.
