Book Review: Scourge

Book review Scourge by Gail Z. Martin

Book Review Scourge by Gail Z. Martin My rating: 5 of 5 stars Imagine the TV show ‘Supernatural’ mated with ‘The Game of Thrones’. Don’t work too hard at it. Just read Scourge by Gail Z. Martin. It feels medieval, but could be some far-off, dystopian future. And frankly, it doesn’t matter to me which …

U.S. Aryans: “I vas only following orders!”

airline review

What happens when corporate greed becomes more important than customer service? You get a total lack of common sense and employees saying “I vas only following orders.” Holy Nuremberg, Batman! We made reservations online with an airline that almost monopolizes Charlotte’s airways (I will call them U.S.Aryans). The web site screwed up the dates and when …

Poker in San Juan Puerto Rico Pt.2

There is poker in San Juan in 3 casinos, but it is $2-5 games that play like a $1-2 game. The pots don’t get very large so if you are looking to make some money, this is not the place. If you are looking to play tight, it will be boring for you, as they play any two cards. If loud, incessant Spanish chatter doesn’t bother you, you will be better off.

Poker in San Juan Puerto Rico Pt.1

The only games they spread are 9 seated, 2-5 no-limit hold em (my personal favorite) and unlike most Caribbean poker rooms, open at around 4pm (most open at 9 PM) and go to about 3:30am. One downside was the rake. $10 maximum (10% for the first 100.00) PLUS a Royal Flush bonus pulls off of a few more dollars. At times, I watched them rake $12-13 from a relatively small pot.

Pass on Puerto Rico

Blue Water, White Sand… Not so Much The ocean is not crystal blue. More of a sandy, murky green. The Isla Verda area is protected by a reef so the big waves aren’t hammering the beach as they do in the Old San Juan area, but there are some strong curls. It’s not the transparent …

Puerto Rico Part 1

I was researching vacation locations and there was very minimal information about certain specifics regarding Puerto Rico, poker there, and the InterContinental Resort & Casino. I will  segment it so you can read only the parts that may interest you. There was a lot to cover so this may be in several parts.
