"Pinks" and Poker

Ms. Lucki Duck has wanted to eat at Pinks, the world famous hot dog joint for quite a while, so we had a couple of dogs for lunch there while visiting Planet Hollywood. She had a chili dog and I opted for the chili-cheese dog (living on the edge), plus an order of fries.

We Texans like our chili SPICY. If your tongue doesn't have second degree burns when you're finished eating, why bother. Pinks chili was very tame and really didn't have any kick to it at all. But the fries were good!

I headed for the Planet Ho poker room and bought in for $200 at the $1-2 NLHE cash game. I played solid poker, picking up a couple of nice pots when my A-K flopped top two pair, and my pocket tens flopped a set and turned a boat. I cashed out a couple hours later a little north of $300.

Ms Duck and I then walked across the street to check out the Cosmopolitan, a fairly new casino that we hadn't visited. Very nice place. We played a little video Bonus Poker when Ms Duck hit 4 dueces for a 50-1 payoff. I high-fived her and noticed that I had a pair of dueces on my machine, with a draw coming. "Wouldn't it be something if I hit 4 dueces too?" I said. Well, guess what? Yep, back-to-back quad twos!


I think we'll head over to the Rio today and watch some WSOP action.

Till next time, win the flips.


  1. I've wanted to eat at Pink's but the cheap guy part of me says that no hot dog is worth what they charge. Your thoughts?

  2. Please as Ms. Lucki Duck to buy me a Power Ball ticket.

  3. @ lightning- It was my first and last Pinks dog.

    @ MOJO- I'll put in a good word for you :)
