I struggle with this topic.........
OK so I got to Bellagio the other night to play a 1-3 game. I get seated and instantly recognized 7 guys at the table to be "decent". Everyone was drinking water or green tea (this is a sin when there is free alcohol available!). It was a quiet game..No body was having fun. It's March Madness in Vegas and I'm sitting with a bunch of nits with back packs and iPads. I feel like I really should be in a game with bad spewy tourists on a Friday night!!
I stayed for a bit.. I was betting hands and only getting called by BETTER. EX I'd raise AK flop a K and bet 3 streets and then the grinder shows two pair etc or an AA he didn't 3-bet pre..
So the question is. Should I move casinos, table change or try to find a better table or should I be working on the 'beating the nits' aspect of my game. Bart always says low limit poker is about GETTING VALUE and NOT PAYING OFF. But that's sometimes very though in some casinos where we happen to have a small reg infestation. I have friends who will snap move casinos, annoy the floor all night changing tables or even go home. But others who text me and say I'm wasting time I could be playing by trying to find a good game and I should just stay put in the game I was sent to and just make the most of it. Who's view is correct?
Ok we all probably agree Dan Bilzerian is a tool but something he said resonated in me. "Im not a very good poker player but I put myself in very good, action games where I can win." I feel like that's my case. I'm not trying to prove I'm the best or play against players of equal or better skill. Maybe when I have a few million in the bank.
Vegas is great.. But when your in LA you can just show up to Commerce and find a good table.. In Vegas you often have to visit 2-3 casinos in a night. Which is annoying but at least they are usually close by vs an hour apart like in Cali.
