I work as a bartender at a nightclub in Milwaukee. From time to time we get athletes that come in. Recently, Kyle Orton was in to take some time off from actually getting better. We also have some regulars that are Milwaukee Bucks players. I'll keep them anon.
Monday night is a busy night, we do $1 martinis for women until midnight. No, it's not fun making a shit ton of martinis. The New Jersey Nets are in town to play a game on Tuesday night against the Bucks. Needless to say, NBA players like to go out and party, and that's what the Nets' players were doing. I served Vince Carter and some of the other Net players and they seemed like genuinely nice guys.
It was cool to see such a big name NBA player hanging out in a baseball cap and baggy clothes. He took some pictures, but not many. He was just having fun with his friends (crew), drinking Hennessy.
That's my interesting story.

I've noticed that he enjoys check-raising and seems to call many hands to the river. He has over $82,000 in front of him and All has around $54,000. This amount has been going back and forth throughout the session. I've been checking the amounts for about an hour and they keep moving back and forth.
There are a lot of weird plays. It seems like they're both amateurs:
- Calling/raising with gutshot draws
- Calling to river with bottom pair
- Calling to the river with any pocket pair
- Calling with 4 card flush on board with bottom flush
Just a lot of over aggressive play.
Update, Daniel over $90,000. Just won a $9,000 pot with 2 pair. Now over $100,000 with trip 10s. Up and down, up and down. It's fun to watch. I recommend it. It sure beats losing a shit ton.

I'll be getting my rakeback in about a week and I'll let you know what that amount was. Over $200, but not sure on the exact amount.
Keep playing aggressive.

$20 buy in NL tourney. Took 4th for $123. Not great, but played well and got lucky when I was short stacked on the bubble.
Once I get my rakeback, will cash out again for at least $600. Rakeback rules. I give rakeback to my players, mostly low limit players. They're still happy with the $20 they get back. I'm getting over $200 this month.
Any questions, just ask.
