I remember visiting Atlantic City in my early 20’s and wandering into a poker room.
It was my first experience and sat down and started playing my first hand
I had tunnel vision and once the betting started, I looked to my right
What I saw was three heads all turned my way and staring at me
I don’t remember much more, but I’m sure I didn’t win the first hand I played
They all knew I was a rookie
I did manage to win a hand
And I do remember the reaction of my opponent.
We wasn’t happy and reacted by standing up, and probably at that moment took a long walk
I didn’t care to watch much more of the reaction
I didn’t feel comfortable at all and I do remember that feeling and left the table soon after.
Curious to hear other players memories at live tables!
