Northern Wisconsin Update
The only other big pocket pair I got was Queens again. However, the woman to my right had Cowboys. Thank goodness the flop had an Ace or I might have lost much more. As it was, I lost part of a buy-in -- so meh.
If anyone has ever thought about playing at St Croix - Turtle Lake, I would recommend you try it out. The room has ten tables, but only two were in use most of the afternoon. The dealers were fine -- very informal, did not make any mistakes that I saw. The tables and chairs are okay -- nothing special. However, some of the real positives of the room are free food (hot dogs, cookies, danish, fruit, soda) and rest rooms right in the poker area. The room is open Thursday-Sunday and features a few decent looking tournaments.
It is snowing outside and there has been a bit of accumulation on top of the regular base of snow here. I hope to make at least one more trip to St Croix -- mebbe even this afternoon.
