Went to Pechanga Casino in Temecula last night for the first time.  Not 21 yet but I wasn’t carded luckily.  I played the largest game they had available which was a $2/5 NL hold em’.  I’ve been waiting to play this game for a very long time.  The buy ins are from $200-$1,000.  I only bought in for $250 which is pretty small and if I played again I’d probably try at least $3-400.  Because I was so short stacked (everyone else had between 500-1.5k) I was forced to play extremely tight.  I played rather passive which is very unlike me.  I played for 3-4 hours and played patiently and picked some good spots… as well as a couple bad ones that costed me $100 each time.  It worked out in the end though and I cashed out $765 for a profit of $515.  First time I have won in a very long time unfortunately.  It felt amazing though and can’t wait to start playing semi-regularly again.
