There's a smoking ban where I live, and it's phenomenal. You can actually go to a restaurant or a bar, breathe, carry on a conversation, and not smell like an ashtray when you get home.

Casinos are about the only places in Minnesota where you can still smoke - and yes, it sucks....But it is because the Reservations are under federal, not state, laws/regulations

Yes...but at least they have those fans on the tables....if I require it, I have put a tip down for the dealer, and then mentioned "hey, could you spin that fan this way a little bit to try to get the smoke away from me?"
What do you play while out there?

i dont play out there. its a s-hole in my opinion. spotty pen, anywhere from 50% one dealer to 80% on another. No double after split on 2 deck. Dealer hit on soft 17. Max 199 on double deck. Pit bosses that are pushy about having a players card if you sit at a table over $5.

I have just convinced myself after typing this thread i will never go there again...thanks dude

(im getting into the mindset where im just going to hit vegas a couple times a year with bigger BR and screw this low limit indian bullsh-t)

Default Are you serious?

Maybe one of the reasons that you are being asked for your club card is that you are drawing attention to yourself...for whatever reason. The camera people at ML are more aware of things than most people realize. I hope you realize this already...you are tracked by your club card. Cash in, cash out, buy ins, everything. Make any sense yet? BTDT.

Squint- With a name like that, you wouldn't happen to work in surveillance, would you? Anyway, everything you said is right on the money.
