Such horrible weather, it screwed up everything

So today i check out of my room in the Nugget in sparks about 11am and give my bags to the bellmen and go to play a little BJ for a bit. ive been winning today, yesterday and the day before in both BJ and in poker, so much so that im back to the $26,000s from the $23,000s. Including $400+ from the mixed game in the atlantis yesterday, $200+ from the $1-2 NL in the peppermill yesterday, $400+ from the $3-5 NL in the peppermill the night before, todays $500 win in the silver legacy, yesterdays $600+ win in the nugget, Plus todays $1000 win in the nugget right after i checked out.

U can see how much ive lost in Reno, by how much ive been given free rooms. 4 nights in the peppermill, 5 nights in the Sparks nugget, and 6 nights in the silver legacy.

Now to discuss how tonights plans got destroyed because of the weather. uve never seen rainy wet snow til u seen todays weather in reno. so much so my socks got soaked walking around. so many trips back and forth to the train station. it was supposed to leave at 4pm. they said check back at 5.30-6. i did, they said 7pm. then 8. then 10. by then i was thouroughly fed up, and the guy in the station who couldnt go home yet and on overtime (station normally closes at 4.45) and told me the train was still 3 hours out wasnt in a good mood either, and he felt i was taking it out on him. i convinced him to refund the entire trip, without being charged a fee for it. so it will take a few days. But the $321 is going to come back. when it does, ill be over $27,000.

Of course, ill end up rebooking another ticket, but maybe this time ill book a plane. im using days 5-6 now in the silver legacy. got 2 nights tonight from the host. just checked in 2 hours ago. (the previous nights i lived in sparks).

had some plans for a vacation. it involved riding a train, a bus, and a shuttle. visiting 9 or so different tiny casinos in a small mountain time, the different options of where to sleep, quite a few hotels, some for $40 with 4 hours poker, (the midnight rose) and then other casino hotels with free rooms for 550 points (no idea how much coin in this is). or 650 points on weekends. no idea if this sells out too. seems one place rents long term, but with only 6 rooms. wouldve been nice to check out their BJ games too. then of course id probably check out blackhawk/central city too. the isle there gives free rooms with 6 hours sun-thurs, but it seems there might not be a game or at least NL. and of course in the NL games its $100 max.

but now what do i do, im still in reno for 2 nights.

annoying things which piss u off while at the BJ table besides the fact ur losing

Well it looks like i wont be riding the rails quite as soon as id liked. u see, it keeps being sold out if u dont book either the train to Denver, the train to St louis, or the train to Toledo a few days ahead of time. there were multiple times in previous years this wasnt the case, and i cant tie myself down because i could change my destination. airlines dont usually sell out, instead they just increase the price. so this means amtrak doesnt charge enough. for if they sell out, it means they couldve got more money. its better to have to pay more and still be able to get a seat than to not be able to get on it at all, right?

its finally starting to really dawn on me (and upset me royally) just how stupid it was to lose over $20,000. like losing a years income, and for well over 75% of my lifetime, my bankroll was never near this high. But could i have stopped this from happening (with the exception of keeping my bets or stakes really low)?

i havent really been playing any differently in reno than i did in vegas, except i spent much more time playing poker in vegas than i did in reno. But im playing using the same methods i did downtown vegas. the only difference is i played the $25 table once, but this isnt where i lost. Only thing i think i do wrong is bet way way more than my bankroll allowed. ive been told my total bets for all 3 spots combined should NEVER be over 2% of the roll.

Plus, the players really upset me, (of course, this is why i always wish to play alone). about the only time i dont wish to is when the count is horrendous and i dont wish to have to eat up cards the entire rest of the shoe by myself. Then id like ONE player and only 1, to sit down. more, i fear will cause others to join also, and i certainly dont wish for the empty spot next to me to fill up which i need to keep open for the times my bets move to 2 spots or more. im sure not going to bet the same amount of spots every time. the way most of these people play (like the guys in front of me who REFUSE to hit 14 vs 8) to stick me with the bust card which theyre supposed to take of course, every time. or give me the 6 for my double down on 10 which theyre supposed to take for their 20 instead. its like theyre trying to make me lose on purpose, or are much more mentally retarded than me. or like the house is shilling them the money to play with to help me lose. How else could they not even be trying?

so many things offend me when playing (and losing). Like the cocktail waitress always putting the drink on the right side of me when i previously request it on my left and always immediately moving it there. the dealers trying to encourage the sucker side bet, which i wish no casinos offered, but theyre never going to stop because this is where 90% of the profits come from the suckers who bet it. always having to refuse the insurance because they keep dealing themself an ace. (if 1 of the big casinos stopped offering insurance to speed up the game, theyd get all the business). AND ESPECIALLY THE BLACK GUY THE OTHER DAY IN THE SILVER LEGACY WHO COMMENTED ON THE FACT I HAD A LOT OF MONEY "AND WAS WINNING BIG" (I WASNT) WHEN HE FIRST SIT DOWN. this is where i started losing the whole $10,000 plus in one sitting last week. of course long before my 3 final big bets, hed gone from the table about 15 minutes prior.

God i hate it when people do this. (act like ur winning simply because u got lots of chips). its either employees feeling resentful seeing u with so much money-and mooching off u- or broke people whod like to take it from u outside. this black guy, i assumed all he sees is a white guy with $$$ so assumes hes rich. he doesnt see me as a human being, just as a rich white republican.

i tipped close to $40 over a few hours 2-3 times before the big losses, usually while up $1000 or so early on. but im sure tipping next to nothing now. maybe 2-3 $1 bets every shoe. i wish i had this back, truthfully id be much better off health wise and money wise if i had back every tip ive ever given out while doing much better over my life. i dont feel i deserve good health since im not winning, or making wise decisions. plus i dont see myself sticking in town long enough to fix it.

well im glad this long overdue chore of updating the blog is over with. and its time to go pay my $800-1200 monthly uber fee and go play some poker. if i put in my $14 hourly here in reno, eventually in several years ill be back from the $25,000s to the $45,000s. no more online bitcoin BJ either, ive lost close to $5000 in this too over the past 4 months. theres only 1 good site left, and ive not been winning there and sometimes its not letting me login. poor management and maintenance. the other good site, bitzino, shut down suddenly on me.

riding the rails

well its a good thing my roll got briefly over $45,000 before things went badly wrong. but of course a big loss was overdue and inevitable sooner or later with the way i was structuring my BJ bets during good counts. new roll $33,000

good reason why its a good idea not to have too much cash on u. when i woke up in my room in the legacy vacation club timeshare resort (which sells thru priceline) where RobVegasPoker would agree with me thats its less than 200 miles from the Peppermill. i woke up about 4 am, and decided to take the Uber to a different casino this time. Once there i got the pit boss to open a shoe game for me, $25 min $2000 max, no smoking, with rules paying 3-2. it shouldve been much easier to win here than in other places, seeing they let u double down on the first 3 cards instead of just the first 2, and since it lets u split aces more than once. much better game than the atlantis. but of couse, the risk i take in doubling up bets, losing sooner or later is evitable. im just shocked it took so long, and i won so much in vegas without it ever happening in the pits there downtown.

id have preferred $15 min, but he made it $25. im not going to argue, these were good rules to have at my own table. i bought in $3000 originally, started off ahead, got low, rebought $6000, and was in for the whole $9000 in cash i had. finally with 3 big bets up, i won with a BJ, and got back to being up somewhat more than $1000.

he even switched dealers for me when i complained that the one dealer (asian of course) so was the pit boss for this matter, but the dealer wouldnt speak. showed no emotion even with a tip, or when losing or winning. the new dealer was an older overweight white woman with glasses who was very good about rooting for me to win, or being very disappointed every time she cost me money. she got several tips early on til i lost a ton of hands close to the very end. Tipping $1 on $25 bets is much easier than on $5-10 bets.

of course, i told him this when he went over with me close to 20 feet away from the table.

he had to approve it with someone higher up which took like 30 minutes, but i ended up with 3 nights free.

the 2nd or 3rd time my bets started getting really high, to once 3 hands of $1250 on the final hand with a split and 2 doubles, where if it wouldve won id been up over $6000. he let me go to the atm during the final hand, where i withdrew $2000 more (max) which means i was in the game for $11,215 total. i cashed out $934. i needed it for the final double down. its easier to allow this if no one but u on the table.

such good rules, (wonder what this brings the payback to without counting?) but the running count was like plus 7 with 2 decks or so left. now u are supposed to double down on A3 againt the dealers 5. but what if u get dealt another a or a 2 or 3? or u could get a face card which u dont want. so instead of doubling, (and im wondering if any other experienced BJ players would agree with this idea) i decided since i could still double down after getting an ace, 2,3,4 i just hit it. i got an ace, and being relieved i didnt double, i then doubled after the 3rd card, and got a lousy 9.

then the dealer turned over 15, then took a card, which was a 6. both the pit boss watching and the dealer felt bad, for she busts with the 9 if i double down instead of waiting for the next card to double. i couldnt play no more, was down way too much, so i cashed out what little was left and sat on the VP for an hour or so waiting for them to approve my room, won little bit less than $200 from VP.

this was like the 3rd time this shoe while with bigger bets out and a good count, the dealer drew to 21. the odds very rare id lose this much. this is why it took so long to lose it.

i think now i will ride the amtrak once my 3 nights up. first ill pick up the money in the peppermill and atlantis, then take a sleeper car.

I'm pissed off

really i shouldnt be, (though my $45,000+ roll is now $43,900+) but i thought i was losing close to $600-700 more. truth be told, here in the tahoe Biltmore, since coming here after leaving reno tues morning, i am still up over $400 overall. but not nearly what i was up before dropping this $1214 over the past 4 hours. theres still a long night to go theres no way to get Uber into reno or sacramento this time of the morning, its like only 1.30 am reno time thursday morning.

i am disappointed Vince wont be around for my birthday so now i wont have any special way to celebrate it. yesterday he mentioned being in Chumash casino playing $3-6 fixed limit big o. ive never been to chumash same for most of u. i thought he was taking a trip to lake tahoe, but it turned out he isnt, hes got a dealing job coming up later this month. hes not coming up here til april. i was going to give him gas money to see 3 different rooms in cali close to 50-75 miles from me ive never been to.

ive still got quite a bit of the money stored in various casinos in reno, over $15,000 worth. Only about $9000 is still with me to work with. some is still in the bank too. i did ride the city bus to buy groceries in the rain today over to incline village and back, this weather up here is horrible. teeth need fixed of course. im wondering if vince was right, i shouldve done this before leaving vegas.

i dont feel reno is really where i want to go instead of vegas. i didnt wish to live in vegas, but theres no good VBJ or regular shoe BJ in reno i like, id rather be in shreveport or other cities. i no longer feel like staying here, but where do i take the amtrak too? where do i fix the teeth?

for the most part, over 95% of the time, ive been left to myself on the VBJ without people. this is just as dead as Hoover dam lodge, even more so. the one kid (so many people in this town dont look over 21 in this casino, including lots of employees) who wouldve sat at least walked off when i didnt feel like associating with no one instead of giving me attitude. when losing big money u really cant afford to, the last thing u wish to do is sit and socialize with strangers. u just want time alone.

theres no hookers in here ever to socialize with either.  the ONLY people who ever come up to talk who arent employees are MEN. people under 40, way under 40, the filth and scum of this new age who believe differently than the rest of us from the much older generation. people who do NOT hold no moral views on sexuality, didnt vote for Trump, dont believe in God or the Bible, they drink, smoke weed, and wish it to be legal. they hate capitalism and believe the govts main responsibility is to provide for everyones financial needs so they dont need to work, and think those of us with disabilities should be aborted before theyre born, so they dont have to deal with our idiosyncracies on the poker table. plus this guy reeked of alcohol. he didnt like not getting a seat when im stuck heavily tying up 5 spots when not betting 5 every hand but at least he left without making too much of an issue. i never had a girlfriend, no matter how much i put other womens needs over my own (think Sue and Britni) and now i only care about money-its what i love now. not women, got no interest in women. i dont like their life views and perspectives. they dont have the old fashioned ones from my grandmothers days no more who wish to be good wives and housemates.

now within the previous 10 minutes i posted 2 new blogs. these 2 blogs, make sure u see them BOTH. not just this one. this is the truth, not the fake tweet i posted, i only posted it curious to see how many people who would be willing to believe the worst.

Reno trip

First off, i wonder if the host who let me have 4 nights in the Peppermill, (checking out tues morning) (when i might take a private sleeper car to toledo via amtrak) knew of the blog entry where i discussed his potential homosexuality 2 yrs ago?

theres not much good BJ here as far as shoe games are concerned. to begin with, i cant play BJ in the GSR where kristi insisted i get us a room so she could sleep around 6 am thurs. so i used my 2 free nights there. not only did she insist on the room, she insisted it be 2 beds. but i left the room worried about getting the $20,000 plus locked up, so she ended up being the only one in it. the cost of the ride to reno was $500.

on the way we had a lot of fun in beatty playing $1-2 NL where most of them smoked. the dealers were trash talking the regulars too, if u seen the tweets.

so i started off locking up the money in the atlantis but not all of it. there were NO shoe games in the atlantis, and the ones during the day dont pay 3-2. i had to get the casino table pit manager debbie to open a $25-2000 table just for me, to get a 6 deck shoe game instead of the 1,2 decks and continous shufflers and shoes with 6-5 payouts. but she gave me my 3-2 game. i played it twice, on different days. once i won $2000, once i won $1500.

when i first went into the peppermill, i quickly lost close to $5000 in their shoe game. this is how i got the free room over the superbowl weekend.

since then ive recovered, am and still over $43,000. lost and won over $1500 on big split poker too. theyve reduced the pay schedule too. won over $1500 once in the $3-5 NL and lost over $1900 once in the $1-2 NL. mostly play just $3-5 NL now. tried the mix game but theyve added too many weird games i dont know. also thinking of going to sacramento to meet veronica in stones. from my twitter.
got saved on the BJ bigtime this morning when i won 3 spots of $1000 each while at the max bet.

should quit playing BJ with bitcoin, lost over $1000 there in the course of 5 or so deposits since dec where ive never yet cashed out.

im winning very little in poker this year, beginning jan 1. only $14 per hour overall. for a bit over $3000. the winnings are pretty much solely in pit games or slots.

to be honest i need to go where theyres no gambling, then id be spending time taking care of medical needs the last 3 days felt no pain in the tooth, where i often took advil the previous 7 days, but of course it desperately needs out quickly. id like to go too where its a ton of different choices of games, safe housing nearby which is affordable and luxurious, and not a soul knows who i am.

the end of my blog

this might be the last blog, im thinking of closing it down and becoming a more private person. I've got way too much money to continue doing the blog, and telling everyone where im playing all the time. its best no one even know which city im living in.

4 nights in a row of $1000 plus wins, 3 of them from poker, then a $4000+ win on VBJ in hoover dam lodge in boulder city. i worry every day now how i can protect anything happening to this money. i never had this to worry about. my entire 20s and 30s i was pretty broke much of the time. every time i did run the roll up to over $10,000 a few times, it would rapidly go right back down.

here's why. i used to play lots of VP and VBJ machines with poor paybacks, including the old type 7 hands at once even money VBJ. now, i stick to the VBJ machines with the better payouts, and when i cant find one, i just go to live BJ instead on the 3-2 games.

tonight i was in the game in the nugget for $200. lost it early, and OF COURSE ive forgotten the hand history. rebought $320, and eventually worked it up to about $1050. then i lost a big pot with QQ where i was good til the river on a scary board of 568 and 2 diamonds. the money went allin on the flop, my opponent had like $275 behind and he called $75 preflop with 78 hts and then on the flop. games tonight were more loose, similar to the hardrock. he rivered the flush.

saw 2 guys get 86ed within 3 hours of each other, both on the same table and same seat. security had to escort them both out for fighting. not my table though. But twice i heard Jen yelling to please get security.

odd it was the same seat and table is all.

when i gave back so much reducing my win to only $163, i left and went to the golden gate. their BJ game is wonderful, 3-2 payout, $5 min and the cut card is 90% of the way down, making it the best game in town for counters. once the first 2 shoes were rather uneventful with negative counts, where my bets spread was between $5 and 2 spots of $12, the 3rd shoe got rapidly up to plus 13 running count about 1 8th of the way in. i begun raising bets and the dealer was busting on 16 almost every hand. i was in the game for $410, left the table when the dealer changed end of shoe with $1468. she got a $1 tip close to 20 times. i know this means i tipped out over 100% of my edge, but im still happy.

i still would rather be in reno or shreveport. or elsewhere.

but the main thing is to use this $38,000 on medical, dental, citizenship and possibly other things u might think of which i dont?

poker in NLV with Vince

Friday night Vince and i went to Jerrys nugget, picked up my $25 in free play and $10 in free food. Then we went to the poker palace in north LV where i lost $71 in BJ and $10 in video poker while waiting for the $20 tourney to end i staked vince in, and the cash game to start up. first time i ever remember losing in live BJ there due to good rules, (u can double down after the 3rd card). finally the cash game started and i bought in $137 in odd change, leaving 5 $100 bills in my pocket. plus vince busted out and needed $100 for the 2nd cash table which soon started later.

found out thru dallas on twitter that of the 3 tables going in the cannery, some of the tables had quite a few NL overs buttons in their $2-6 game, and vince much prefers to play this to NL. so we thought of going over there soon, but Vince said lets not go right off. i was mainly concerned he would lose the $100, but i still prefer the poker palace to the cannery.

i started off winning, and had my buyin up to just over $250. then he came over to tell me he lost his chips and we decided to go on my BB. then i found AK and raised the straddle to $23. 2 people called. including the straddler who vince says plays there all the time. with a big stack since its no cap on the buyin. Flop comes K9T with 2 spades and ive got the A of spades, king of diamonds. straddler, as usual, checks dark. other guy checks to me. i bet $65. both call. one has $9 left. turn comes Q of spades. he checks, the guy whose almost allin bets the $9, which i figured he would which of course gives the straddler the option to check raise me allin which i dislike. i call, because i fear im beat, so i dont raise. sure enough he check raises me allin for like $170 more. i shouldnt call, but i do since im stuck and know ill need to stake vince one more time in the cannery. i ask for the J of spades, and were we all surprised when it came for my royal.

i quit, cashed out $647.

in the cannery vince and i sat in the same game and played for 2-3 hours where i won $114 and he turned the $100 into $218. so i got the $200 back thank God. i was worried he would lose it. game was incredibly good, which is why dallas loves the room so much. he was on a different table. without the overs buttons. i didnt know it but vince told me the pot he won in the hardrock the other day where i also staked him, was with a bluff too. i and the rest of table was convinced he had the boat.

Then he dropped me off in the nugget and went home, since i wanted to wait til 6 to go home to sleep, so i could sleep days and be awake nights. i played there for 4 hours, was holding my own with $120, til i lost with KK to AA on the final hand. took an uber home, for less than lyft by $3. i thought lfyt was supposed to be less? herbies friend robert drove for lyft the other night. we talked about the 10x points on the VBJ, where im up over $2600 since coming to vegas and how odd it is someone with the big money didnt burn out the promotion yet. by the way once the count hits minus 3, theres no longer an edge. but the edge could get over 102% on the good counts.

where im living now Vince has a washer and dryer right inside his condo. in fact he has this in both of the ones he owns.

for the first time in a year, i needed advil last night for the teeth which need fixed. ill have too many holes if removed. i need to look into an iv dentist without the 2 month wait for it. if possible, but i dont know where ill live. plus my eyesight is getting harder to tell the suits. got to look close so the flop wont be blurred. i worry something is majorly wrong. and if u go in for the low cost eye exams, what to tell the dr. i dont think all drs know the most.

is it possible to break $30,000?

didnt realize how long id let this go once more without being updated, (and when im not losing big) or doing road trips with new casino reviews, theres less to write of.

Played another session with Grouchie in the redrock, even Vince showed up finally. my biggest win ever, and grouchies biggest ever loss. i won over $1180. most of it came from flopping 8888, not from him. even gave out $60 worth of tips. never did meet WEC, who is seems is still living.

if u take a massage at the table, and pay with chips, do u log out as winning $200, or as winning $230? i write it down as being up $200. but paying for these lowers the hourly. so maybe i win more per hour than my logs show.

its best to underestimate than overestimate the win for sure.

got moved into vinces condo by desert inn, he too will be living here. his old condo in summerlin will be strictly Jay and maybe his canadian girlfriend. the guy who took forever who wasnt paying rent in the other condo on desert inn finally moved out. spent lots of money buying food, new locks for doors, windows, curtains etc, and Vince is doing lots of work here installing carpet, etc. he quit his job today since him and his woman boss who dont like men werent working out, and he wants to do more work with harrahs, etc dealing more. he thinks im a great help to him financially.

won $2900 in the past 10 days on BJ in ellis isle on the VBJ due to the 10x points, which im sure theyll discontinue anyday if others played it this heavily. ran thru about $100,000 for $1000+ in free play. which is most of the winnings. seeing when and where it shuffles helps too.

now im close to $30,000 but just this morning lost $521 in the nugget. i start losing everytime ive got this close. back to $28,900. just cant break over $30. but i still feel insanely rich. got a lot more stored in the cashier nugget now too.

its good to have gotten the iphone back id lost on the bus. this was a big relief, now i still have my records and all my stored contacts. plus i paid $90 so my laptop nows good a battery which works. Ray did lots of good checking on the phone for me.

will be glad once vince comes home

Sometimes i feel like i need to hire a full-time bodyguard, and if i ever got to the point where i earned $500 a day from Poker/BJ i would. take tonight for instance. im walking thru the nugget to the Uber/lyft pickup point by the carson tower. im thinking of using the restroom, but i dont like the scary looking homeless black guy walking into the restroom in front of me so i figure ill use the other one by the rush tower, but when i get there, its closed for service. i dont wish to go back, too lazy its such a long walk (and so is the walk from the bathroom to the poker room). so i go to request the lyft, and see 150% surcharge still at close to 5am. odd since it was only 50% at 3am. so i look up uber and uber is much lower, so i use it instead. i could take the bus but i hate to use the boulder hwy bus middle of the night, for 1 thing im let off other side of the street, and i hate waiting 45 minutes for it surrounded by broke homeless people. theres a difference between being homeless like me, and being unable to afford motels. in fact all the times in my life i was homeless, i was the ONLY homeless person i ever met who wasnt addicted to drugs or booze. but i sure would be saving money. in the daylight id took the bus for sure $2 is so much less.

Now when i get out of the uber, i walk next door to the 7-11 on indios and boulder, to buy food for the room. inside the store theres nothing but 2 hookers and a lot of homeless looking black dudes. i dont have no change since i cashed out $406 and didnt get twenties. and im sure not pulling out $100 bill in front of the stores clientele. and i dont like the guy standing behind me too close. i use the atm, and i worry he will see type in my pin. i just wish to swipe my debit without using a pin, but since my debit card contains a chip, they make u use a pin. i never used to be asked if my card had a chip. u could tell the women were hookers by the way they were showing so much skin. and the way anyone familiar with vegas knows this part of boulder hwy. ill never rent here to save money again. no free wifi either. $12 per night. no decent poker near me, nothing but limit on boulder hwy mostly. except a few hours per day in boulder station.

ellis isle i got a scare too. for while playing BJ in there, (due to the 1% cashback with the 10x points) and i know they will soon discontinue it on the VBJ like el c and every other casino which used to give points on dealers angels. to get the 10x points u must take the card out and reinsert it once u hit 500 base points. i discovered this the hard way. but while playing, some broke homeless drunk looking mexican dude walked up i think noticing and staring at my credits (about $1700 worth) divided among 2 spots. (i no longer try to play 5 spots). i sure wasnt going to play with him watching like he wanted me to do. he said that was his lucky spot as his excuse for standing there. i needed to use the restroom, but i worried he would try to grab my vouchers if i cashed out. or follow me into the restroom. lots of homeless people, no security in the ellis isle restroom. i asked him if he wished me to cash out so he could play, but he didnt really respond, just sat in a chair a different type of machine other side of aisle, then later he started sleeping in this chair, obv clue i was right he was broke, unless he wouldve bet $3 min a few times. i know he was just staring at my money cause it happened in the el c and circus all the time, which is why i liked jean and the hoover dam lodge better. no bums there, its more like laughlin or crystal bay which are bum free mostly.

when he was sound asleep i cashed out, went to the restroom, then once i noticed him still asleep, finally cashed in the vouchers thru the kiosk. but i sure felt nervous while he was sitting watching even when he went to do it from 20 feet away instead of right close by.

even played stud and omaha a bit in samstown this morning. but the stud game is too tight and the $1 ante too high. its $2-10 only goes 11am on sat. i did win $73 in the omaha. lost $13 in stud. in the mc donalds, on the street, and everywhere on boulder hwy 90% of the people are broke, homeless or on drugs or pimps or hookers. its not safe area at all and i used to live there.

and though i recovered $200 today minus all the uber or lyft fees, im still over $1400 worse off than 48 hours before. this all started due to losing $224 in $3 live table BJ in az charlies. this is why i made a bad shove in the game in boulder because i wanted to leave and flip to get even but it ended up being worse than a flip and i lost. went to my room to sleep, and woke up still out $523. then i went to the wynn and the only game i won in was PLO heads up against a good 5-10 player. was once up $400 but quit up $91, then lost $500 in the $1-3. got annoyed by the other players, made 1 poor shove and left the encore. this one girl who spoke little english possibly russian or french they let get away with everything cause of her looks. u cant have phone or big box size purse on the felt and no one said a word to her, and it blocked the view of someones chips i thought was allin. and i was pissed the one reg whose a dick who gets free backrubs from the floorlady left with another girl to go to a strip club he wasnt even with. so dumb of women to go to them, this is why i cant relate in the old days women were offended if their man went to one, and thats the kind of women i could relate to and understand much better. if a women goes to one she seems queer to me. for a straight women would rather go to a mens gay bar and see half nude men dancing than half nude women.

i never do good in the wynn, though i won in the PLO. about 30 minutes after i sat it became just me and 1 other guy. i was stuck over $200, but i got it back and up $400 briefly once. shouldve hit and ran on him, but i couldnt since i felt stuck from the $523 loss earlier.

emotions kill u if u are trying to play good poker or BJ.

Poker with the Trooper97

December is turning out to be quite a good month. i'm even up on VBJ on the not so good type of VBJ in the el cortez. even with this mornings $493 loss on it. this month is almost ending, but ive won over $7000 this month, just off poker, with over $32 per hour winrate for december. this is increasing the overall winrate, which is now over $18 per hour for the last 2500+ hours played. (all forms of live poker combined, in all locations combined). so its no wonder the $21,000+ i arrived in vegas with is now $24,000+ even with the $750+ i spent on hotel rooms over the dec 26-jan 3rd period til Vince returns home from NJ on Jan 3.

I think games have improved tremendously in vegas from the slow period during the economic crash of 2008-2009, which obama helped to cause long before he got into office. (acorn --he heavily supported and was involved with--was threatening to sue banks if they didnt make bad loans to help the poor and minority communities). these loans caused the crash. naturally, they blamed Bush. Plus the new players entering poker are much worse now, without the help of online poker to get better.

a lot of us who play for a living got out, but im still doing my 25+ yrs of service for the community. one of the oldest of the old timers who used to play 7 stud. Grinders quitting to do other jobs is why the games have gotten better. but lets not deceive ourselves, vegas is still the worst place to move to to play poker for a living. i still cant win in the Wynn. spent 4-5 hours there the other morning, and lost $39. ive had multiple $500+ wins in the nugget this week.

Most grinders use less good judgement than me, (they look for the fanciest looking room to play in instead of the easiest game with the best action). theyre in the wynn, while im in the poker palace in north lv, where i won an easy $380+ friday evening over 4 hours or less in a very action packed game with NO other good players.

now yesterday i was up about $600 in the golden nugget off of my $200 buyin. because of the increase in my bankroll, ive decided to do away with my standard $120 buyin and raise it to $200. and i left the table to use the restroom. when i return, i find the Trooper sitting in seat 1 on the other end. im in seat 7. i fully expected him to immediately request a table change, since hes never sat on my table in the past. in fact, hes actively avoided this, and said many quite negative and unkind remarks about me being weird, although less so than himself. but he is unable to accept anyone whose different mentally. if u see his vlogs, which i do religiously, (seen more of them even than donald trump rallies) he often talks derogatively of anyone he considers crazy. Kind of like ur schoolhouse bully. but no, he didnt do this, and starting raising lots of my BB. he didnt add to his stack, he kept it at $300, when he dropped to $200, he added $100. so he wasnt out to cover me, probably due to his roll being so much less.

a lot of people say if u are going to be an ambassador for poker, u need to do whatever u can to create better game conditions. this i do and have been told such by others, including a guy this week meeting me for the first time. but he wont talk, hes sitting there silent as a mouse to everyone. interact with the fans. he never straddled either. he didnt even bring his starbucks coffee with him to the table. but his hat and blind squirrel sweater is why i recognized it was him, otherwise i wouldnt.

u will notice on twitter how he tried to deny it was him at first, and he tweeted he was in the MGM. but if u look over all his tweets, u will see the ones saying he lied too. i took a photo but it didnt come out too clear. found it quite odd i didnt see his camera with him. i dont think he filmed it, so if he puts up a vlog ill wonder where he filmed it from.

let it be said, unlike many trolls on 2p2, i've never said one bad word about his poker game. in fact i quit once i caught myself in a poor attempt to bluff him for psycological purposes since he tilts easily being so emotionally invested in me not winning off him. i shouldve known he had very strong hands, and wouldnt fold. so i left the game while still up $484 instead of the $900+ i once was up. i wouldnt been up that had it not been a very lucky hand earlier. he got aa more than once in a very short period of time, so i felt he was raising to steal, when he wasnt. i then worried i would tilt off to him all my winnings, so i decided to leave while still up good. plus the table had just combined, and 2 older guys from the other game, both with over $600 had just moved to my table. they appeared they might be a gay couple, and rooted for each other against me, and seemed to be mocking my play when i lost.

the big pot id won earlier? it was against the asian lady in seat 5 who looked vaguely familiar. she was with her husband on another table from CO. she wanted info on good golfing in vegas, and i suggested maybe it would be good idea to give her over to @onechiquita. but i thought maybe she might be CKBWOP. ill never know. not sure why i think she looked familiar. he looked like id played with him before too.

when i first sat the asian guy in seat 6 had John 3.16 written on an index card next to him. i asked and he said he was christian. i suggested he should find Ray on twitter, but he dont use it. he was trying to start more christianity up among poker players.

on the flop of A26, everyone checks. i've got 44. turn comes A. she is last to act. we all check i forgot how many in the pot. she bets $20, i check raise to $80 because i think she dont have the ace, and im wishing to show a bluff since the trooper is present. i dont think he respects my game as much as i respect his, and im wishing to correct this. she calls, so i then know shes got the ace after all. river comes 4. my miracle card. so i bet $200, thinking shes got over $300+ behind. (really was $400+) i bet very quickly without thought. she called just as fast with AQ, and i could only think i didnt bet enough. i got lucky.

deposited $2000 more of the winnings in the golden nugget cashiers cage, so ive got $7000 stored now.
