A Relaxing Day at the Casino
Casinos are about more than bells and whistles and flashing lights. That’s how they’re advertised, but it can’t be Saturday night all week long. Once Tuesday afternoon rolls around, the casino can be a great place to relax, unwind, and play a few games here and there. Tuesdays are for coffee; Saturdays are for bottle service.
Speaking of which, coffee has its own split personality. It’s a stimulant, but in the right amount – usually one cup for most people – coffee can help you relax. And the afternoon is the ideal time to drink that cup. It’ll help you digest your lunch, boost your metabolism, and lower your heart rate. A single s replica louis vuitton tasche hot of joe will also give you just enough of a dopamine boost to keep you refreshed and focused at the tables, without getting wired.
So what games should you play on a relaxing afternoon at the casino? In general, the games that require the fewest decisions and tax your brain the least: keno, slots, roulette, maybe even some video poker if you have a good basic strategy down pat. Some people might enjoy the sound of the roulette wheel in particular.
If you’d prefer a relaxing afternoon at the poker room, the same strategy applies – assuming you can find a game that you’re very comfortable playing in. The stud variants (especially 7-Card Stud and Razz) are the simplest poker games you’ll run into, but they aren’t spread nearly as often as no-limit Hold’em.
That doesn’t mean Hold’em can’t be played for relaxation. Limit Hold’em might be a better choice, since it takes away all those decisions about bet sizing, but you can still play No-Limit without getting too worked up. Buy in with a shorter stack at a game well within your bankroll, stick to premium starting hands, and look for a table where everyone else is relaxed, too. A full-ring game will ensure you don’t have to play too many hands – maybe 30 in an hour at most. Fold in marginal situations, sit back, enjoy your coffee, and soak up the afternoon.
