Laughlin is a resort town in the southwest tip of Nevada on the Colorado River, about one hundred miles from Las Vegas and directly across from Bullhead City, Arizona. The area is very popular with California and Arizona visitors because of its nine casino hotels which offer room rates as low as $17 per night.

The city is named after Don Laughlin, who owns the Riverside Hotel and Casino, and who originally settled there in 1966. The area offers many water sport activities on the Colorado River as well as at nearby Lake Mohave. If you plan an overnight visit, be sure and make advance reservations. The largest hotel is the Flamingo Hilton (800-FLAMINGO), with 2,000 rooms, followed by Harrah's (800HARRAHS), with 1,657 rooms, and the Ramada Express (800-2-RAMADA), with 1,501 rooms. Most hotels are located on the banks of the Colorado River, and there is a convenient walkway that connects the properties as well as a water taxi that provides regularly scheduled service along the river.

Nevada has one Indian casino: Avi Hotel & Casino (800-AVI-2WIN), which is located eight miles south of Laughlin and is operated by the Fort Mohave Tribe.

Your Table Image, and How to Use It
 
Most of the time, you should concentrate on playing your cards correctly and using whatever table image you happen to acquire. However, under certain circumstances, you can take advantage of opportunities to intentionally cultivate adjective image, even if it involves throwing away a bet or two. For example, if you think your opponents are mistaking your aggressiveness for recklessness, it might be smart to reinforce that mistake by intentionally getting caught bluffing or raising on the first bet with rags or something like that. You don't have to plot in advance to do these things, but rather take advantage of circumstances to "make a mistake" that tarnishes your image without costing you too much money. This type of investment has a lower rate of return at a ]ionic game, where it is more difficult to throw off opponents who play with you every week, but it can still be worthwhile.
