I had my first big winning session playing no limit hold'em at Russ's the other week. It does help when you pick up the rockets on the 3rd hand, and bust Russ (for the 1st time). That quick start allowed me to play a little looser than I normally would, and make a few calls of all-in bluffs in somewhat marginal situations. I think I played pretty well, except when I called off a little too much money chasing cards to the river. (The implied odds were huge, I swear!)
This photo was touched up in Picasa, as usual. The flash on my camera is a little harsh, so I usually subtract 1/3-step on the exposure setting, and then raise the settings afterwards. The result on this photo is some great atmosphere, although the reflection off the glass, and the shadows are a tad harsh.
