    First Time at the Casino

    Hey guys, I'm going to a casino for the first time today. I'm average at online poker, but never had the chance to play online with a lot of money before. I'm going to be bringing 100-200$ to the casino to play with, and would like any tips with a bankroll that size, and anything I should know/be prepared for.

    I know 100-200 isn't a huge amount of money, but it's the most I've ever had in my bankroll before, so I'm excited and don't want to lose it all, in fact I'd like to try to turn a small profit if I can.

    So, like I said, any advice for a poker newbie? I know basic theory, like basic tournament play and sit and go play, and I'm alright at cash games and know basic betting structures like when to 3-bet etc, but I'm nervous and blanking a little, so any quick overview of things to remember mid game, stakes I should play with my bankroll, tournament stakes I should play in, etc. I'm thinking of entering a few satelites, playing 25-50 cent poker, and hitting the blackjack tables a little to try to boost my bankroll by 50$ or so, and then towards the end, enter a tournament or two if I have time.

    As well, my girlfriend is coming and she's never played poker before. She'd like advice on what she can do. She's going to have around 50$ to play with, so sh was woindering what types of games she should play, any poker, or slots, or roullete etc?

    Thanks for the advice in advance!

    Let me know how it goes, I don't have any advice for you, since I've never played live either. I am looking to make the transition though, I'm just not sure what to do

    Sure thing! One of the biggest things I'm doing is reviewing my ABC poker so that, if I start to panic or blank out, or get lost, I can automatically fall back onto that. As well, I'm reviewing my basic bank roll management. I'll probably be bringing in 20-25 BB into no limit, and playing Tight-aggressive to start until I get a handle on my nerves, and start to learn to read the table.

    My best advice is don't get intimidated. Take some time and play tight until the butterflies go away and you get a sense of the table. Let us know how you did.

    all trappers do not wear fur hats....take your time and watch every hand for a bit and fold alot until you can get a bit of a feel for the other players. players are all different, there are always one or two that will be very bet happy...beware when they are checking it to you and remember if they are calling its usually for a very good reason...or is it? maybe waiting to steal if a scare card comes....learn your opponents as cards are not nearly as important as a good read
    "Best way to win a tournament is act like you know what your doing......FOLD that garbage"

    My advice would be if you get ahead at the Blackjack table, walk away, cause those runs can be positive or negative real fast. For poker, See if they're offering like a $20-30 buy in tourney and that might help with your butterflies. I know a couple casinos near here run tournys like that daily. Gl whatever you do.

    Oh and Tiberius, you should also dress up like a Roman emperor to match your name, if that's your real name, and try to catch them off guard(while they stare at you confused) and take down some some pots quickly....

    God damn it CKC. Nah, it's not my real name Also, I don't think this casino offers smaller tournaments, but I might be wrong, the website isn't very informative, and the people I'm going with either haven't been there before, or don't care about tournaments. If there is a small tournament or Sit and go or anything similar, I'm gonna hit it up to get a feel for live play

    It's Casino Rama in Ontario. I really don't think they have small tournaments, which sucks I signed up for a Club Card though!
