Going Back to Cali

We just booked our anniversary trip and we are heading back to the scene of the crime. Stacie and I got married 10 years ago (in a few months) in California and we thought it would be fun to go back and see some of the things we missed the first time.

The first half of the week, we will be in the Carmel and Big Sur area doing some mountain hiking and checking out waterfalls. When we got married, we couldn't make it all the way to Big Sur because the road had washed off in to the Pacific, so this will be new for us. This area appears to be very desolate with some great preserved expanses along the coast.

We are going to finish off the week in San Francisco visiting Golden Gate Park, Muir Woods, The Presidio (George Lucasville) and some of the museums. Stacie decided to pass on Napa and Sonoma this time, but I may have some time to try out a California poker room. The only one that is close to were we will be staying is Lucky Chances. I'm not sure how I will like it since it is not the usual NL game that I am used to playing. I don't understand the "spread" and I have almost no experience in limit games. I will have to get my neighbor to give me some pointers and explain some things to me since he is more familiar with playing in California casinos.

Here is what I wrote in my trip report about Lucky Chances:

Let me explain for those who have never played this variety before (me included). The button posts $1, then the SB is $1 and the BB is $2. There is no limping allowed and you can only open raise to $4 or more. You can buy in for a minimum $40 and a maximum $200 and the maximum bet/raise on any street is $200. So for example, if on the turn someone bets $60 you can only raise to $260. Needless to say this is an extreme action game. We saw flops 6 and 7 handed a lot of the times.

Enjoy your trip!

Thanks for the info, I forgot you had played there. Of course after reading this, I am more confused than ever. I'll have to come over for some practice rounds with David.
