Reader Poll Replies:

I seem to be playing poker now and five years ago I was afraid to even enter the poker area of a casino.  Rebecca D.  IL

*  Yes, each Vegas trip I spend about half my time playing poker instead of blackjack.  Donald S.  FL

*  I am not a poker player. Never was and probably never will be. When I sit down to play blackjack, three card poker or any of the other tables games I know what the odds are and I am playing against the house. In poker I would be playing against unknowns. Besides, I can't stop grinning when I get a good hand. Richard Pinter  Schaumburg, IL

*   Texas Hold'em is slightly over-rated and just being over-exposed in general. One can catch some sorta Texas Hold'em tournament nearly every single day on TV, particularly of one has a satellite or cable connection. Like the Rubik's Cube and Hoola-Hoop, Texas Hold'em it will die a quick death with all the over-exposure it's receiving.  Don Oremus  Caldwell, ID

*  I still stick to 3-Card Poker and Roulette. Slots are also on my list. When I'm in Vegas I don't want to have to think that much so I just like to play on-line for fun. Although I never miss it on TV.   sue  south beloit

*  I used to play only 7 card stud on our three weeks a year at H.G.V.Club.(since'95).Now it is very difficult to find anything but Hold'em. At 72,I was surprised to find it easier to win at Hold'em! (My wife,76,is a good slots player.) We love LV, and we meet some very nice people at the tables-in all these years I have had aggravation only once, when a player abused a dealer-who couldn't answer back, of course. I offered to give him a good hiding, which he declined. See you in August, Guys!  Tony Fowler  Hunmanby Gap  England

*   I still prefer the casino games. I feel they are a safer game - more even. In Hold'em I do not feel I match up well against other players.  Rod Skinner  Pittsburgh

*   Even with all the press for the Texas Hold'em I still prefer my favorite table game, roulette. With poker it takes too long to accumulate a great deal of winnings unless you are making very large bets. I can stack my favorite numbers and is they hit, get a large amount at once. With roulette I can lose big, but if I win I can win big too.   Liz Buchanan  Douglassville, PA

*   Usually I do not play more texas Holdem when visiting vegas because it usually is with my husband who does not play so I have to play far less so he will take me to vegas more often.  paula stull  texas city
