im sorry for not being honest with my readers, so i lost again. This is proof God almighty will judge the wicked for their sins

This is a really sad blog entry to have to write. the smart thing for me to do would be not to tell anyone this. But ive never done the smart thing my whole life as an adult, so why start now?

i just lost $1982 on the VBJ machine here in the tahoe Biltmore. so my new bankroll is $7351. and it deserves to be that too, for lying to my readers by underestimating the amount i came back from louisiana with. why did i do this? well i wanted to have some money to play VBJ with here in tahoe, and still have over $6000 to work with to get started in reno. and i figured if ive subtracted the money mentally already it wont cause a complete emotional and mental breakdown when it inevitably will occur.

for over a week things were ok. everytime i listed a $6000+ roll, it was an $8000+ roll. everytime i listed a $7000+ roll, it was a $9000 plus roll. dont get mad, its PPP who told me i shouldnt be honest about how much money ive got. and since i spent the $36 mom wanted me to finally once id recovered over $500 in this vbj, i figured i was "doing the right thing". in fact i did ok as long as i had the discipline to stick to the 1% rule.

today and the last 2 days i lost the discipline, 1 hand tonight while stuck heavily was 4 spots of $100, and the 5th spot was $70 for $470 bet. the running count id estimated to be plus 23 growing heavily every hand, and the dealer got BJ 2 hands in a row due to all the big cards left as i was betting big both times. it was the first time ive ever seen it this high in many months.

i will get close to $190 in bitcoin to hit my bank on tuesday. so it will increase the roll slightly. but this is because i got the rest out of bovada today finally id been waiting on which puts my new online roll at only $28. so im playing lots of sngs $1,3,5 only

im tired of playing this VBJ finally after tonights horrible $1982 loss, so i now wish to get back into reno (and grinding $1-2 much earlier than this thursday now). my last 3 sessions of live $1-2 NL were all winners, for about $380 total so i feel comfortable playing $1-2 NL once more. im really disappointed i couldnt get the $9000 up to over $10,000 though. were i to have succeeded, i was going to tell 1 more lie and claim i won it here in the biltmore.

truth is, in coushatta instead of losing $4000 in poker i lost only about $2500 in poker, and $1500 on VBJ. not $2000 VBJ and $4000 poker. this doesnt mean i wasnt truthful with kristi (ak gal) about security wanting me checked out by mental health for things i said right before i left for good. but i overestimated the loss. i wish id stayed put in shreveport, i wish id went home to Rays house with the extra $2000 instead of needing to worry who i can rent from in reno, etc. lots of poor decisions, and they all stem from the feeling of panic and terror once the $10k was wasted in shreveport on BJ over a relatively short time period. i think the first poor decision which started this was moving out of a nice safe room in the ramada bossier city for $700 month simply because of a nonworking fridge which wouldnt get cold enough. this is why i was staying downtown in the casinos, needing to earn free nights which were fairly easy to get if u played BJ enough.

the poor decisions started in NJ and PA where i won about $2000 a month on live BJ. this gave me a false sense of security and the feeling i wouldnt lose no matter how poorly i played. this too is probably why i got the emails offering me 4 nights a week at the taj, 2 nites per week in the trop, and all other days i put in 4 hours in harrahs ac for a free room (plus the $27 resort fee). atlantic city lifted my ban officially years ago, but they lifted it BEFORE joliet. but its never showed me banned there since. i dont think harrahs knows about ballys, so i did all of my ac nj playing in harrahs since i got mad that one time in ballys in NJ this one december (the night of the blizzard i flew Philly to Tampa).

i wish Benny Profane was an honest guy, and not out to lead me to believe things untrue all the time. such as info on machines he claims he will tell and hasnt, and pretending to be a female in reno wanting to meet. Ray offended his wife big time by joking with her online (with the fake profane benny id) the same way he does with PPP, lightning and AC, but like me, his wife isnt capable of understanding humor. because i could sure use a good woman to love me and a steady free place to live to get on my feet.

theres no uber service this time of night to reno, (only the $120 cab parked across the street which sits there all night often) and considering id have no room for sun night, it wouldnt be wise. the smart thing is to take todays 238pm amtrak and have a room booked downtown 1 night while i look for housing. this would be only $18 to get to reno, and would hopefully stop me from losing more on the VBJ here in tahoe.

before tonight i had some wins, some losses, but i was never down more than $400 and was up over $400 some of the time.

bluff with 44

Just would like to make sure im playing poker correctly, because my times about up here in crystal Bay and ill be 100% dependent on poker soon. (this will include Bovada too at least, for its only bovada thats brought in over $1075 in bitcoin to my bank). theres been 1 more withdrawal received of $150 bitcoin since i last ran out, and $300+ still on bovada.

i feel better knowing my last 3 sessions of $1-2 NL (all here in the only local poker room, the Hyatt regency in incline village). i've won in all 3 sessions, biggest win of $206. today i rode the bus to the grocery store to buy food one final time before i depart for reno this week. its going to be scary, not knowing where i can find to live, no more video BJ, and knowing ill be forced to win at poker to survive whether i want to or not.

i stole a pot tonight, probably for the wrong reasons since i was tired of not having any hands to bet. But the bluff was successful. i seen the flop with 44 for a $13 raise and the flop comes 88K with 2 clubs. I check, the raiser bets $25 (young guy with his wife prone to get pissed off in the game easily under stress with his wife whose watching and theyve swapped seats she plays too earlier). i go allin for $111, he shows 10 10 and starts to think. counting out chips, then pulling them back to think.

i couldnt hear what his wife said to him, nor what the player on the other end of the table. later he blamed his wife for the fold, she wants to leave and now he dont want to leave and refuses, they get into a big arguement. i sure aint going to tell him if im rebuying or not if i lose. so i said i hadnt yet decided. i sure aint going to say i have him beat this might make him think im trying to get him to fold. so i tell him the only way he can find out is to call and to think about how he will wonder the rest of the night if he was good. he folds then, and the guy on the other end says he didnt know why he didnt sooner, then i show my 44.

he did have about what i put him on, either a medium pair or ace hi.

got lucky one other time too, or id had about $40 or less in chips so id won much lower sized pot. guy on my immediate left when its on me to call a $15 preflop raise, (which im going to do with 99) puts out $30 in 2 stacks of $15 in front of him, so i know what hes getting ready to do though its not in the pot yet. so i fold, he raises, and it saved me lots of chips. maybe more later. people must wait til its on them to let the table know their plans.

what would u have done differently during tonights poker session?

in the Biltmore, theres a promotion wed and fri where u pick a envelope from a barrel to get this amount of free play. i think $1000 is the max, and $5 is what mostly all people get. i got $15 last friday.

i tried to fix my hours so id be awake to play the VBJ the best possible hours, 2am to 9am. i remembered the Hyatt poker room is open wed-sun 7pm-3am and i went to catch the 6pm bus. the next one and final one, is 7pm.

i didnt wish to catch the 7pm bus because i didnt want to have to wait for a seat so i wanted to be there right at 7pm. (when i thought the game would start). so i woke up about 5.53pm and rushed to get out the door, knowing the bus is often 5 min late. the promo is noon til midnight, so i couldnt draw an envelope before i went to sleep about 10am. so i never got to do it.

not only that i didnt think i had time to get change for $5 so i ended up giving the bus driver $5. the bus was full of people, but in this area, none of them speak english, and none were over 21. mostly very young foreign workers or schoolkids. there were a few mexican adults on it. no one spoke up they had change for the $5. turns out the bus was 14 minutes late, so i wouldve had time for both.

plus i needed food, the room is empty, and the grocery store in incline village is open 7am-11pm. the only 24 hour one is the 7-11 and the other grocery store in kings beach further out in the other direction. so i never got to buy ice cream sandwiches and instant potato mixes. and more 99c big size soups.

so i get to the casino close to 6.40pm, and i find out that on wed and thurs they have a $50 tourney first, with $30 addon/or rebuy, and the $1-2 dont begin til 8.30 when its over.

so i dont like this, but i decided to play, worried id lose more on the VP waiting. their green and black chips look alike, so the blinds were $25-50 with $1000 to start. 1 table of 10 paying 60-40. the person under the gun put out 2 chips, which i assumed were $50, so i called 5-6 diamonds on the button. this was after id won a small pot going allin with AJ when no one called, and i had like $1400. then the dealer tells me he'd announced the raise to $125, whether he did i dunno, then he made the smart ass remark "its a visual game" when at the opposite end u cant see the color. so i had to leave it in, so i called.

flop comes 569 and seat 1 goes allin. seat 3 folds. i call. turn 7, river 7, and his 9-2 (wtf) scoops the pot and i rebuy in the next few hands. (had $350 left).  he busted the tourny before me, hes horrible.

but i lost the rebuy too when i flopped 4 to the ace hi flush. so im out $80 no more rebuys, then lose $45 more on the VP during the 45 minutes i wait for $1-2.

i buyin $100, win some nice pots, against very loose players, and one was a successful bluff. but then i had $377 in front of me and i no longer wish to gamble. in fact, id like to leave early instead of waiting to ride home FREE at closing time with the boss as usual. but i feel dumb if i do this. i looked and looked and no uber ever showed up in this area closest were reno or south lake 20-25 miles out.

kept folding and a guy had his $200 max buyin up to $1000. he kept winning and it was a really loose game. he kept showing me his junk he kept making it $15-30 preflop with 8-5 diamonds, Q-3 etc. there is only 1 good player there whose seen my blog before.

so im waiting for a hand i wont have to fold with. then i finally get 99 on the button. i go $5 he goes $20 and only i call. were we not both so deep id re-raised. should i?

flop comes K36, he bets $25 i call. turn comes K, he bets $30, i shove because theres so many things that he might beat me with on the river i beat now, and i wanted no action, he calls with KA and i left immediately very pissed i didnt quit when i wished to and just wait for a cab for $20.

so yes lousy nite, new roll $6460. took the cab, got some things in the 7-11 but not near enough. will now go to the VBJ. got the $590 online still. waiting on a bitcoin requested withdrawal for some of it

taking it easy, no commutes, paying for rooms, or live poker $1-3 swings.

Will not be in reno itself for awhile yet, im still out in the Tahoe Biltmore using the 3rd of my 10 free days and of course i could earn comp dollars for more free nites. (but at a slow rate since i almost never get to bet over $1 since the count never is good, and following the 1% rule even when it is.) so im earning far less than $10 a day in comps. good thing i still had close to $200 from the previous trips last summer with the $18,000 roll and much higher max bets. i do miss playing live $1-2 NL in reno, but the motel i used to live in with little apts for rent with big kitchens by the week evidently has closed down, so ill be paying alot more, be less safe, or be a long bus ride out. this i wont like.

went to the grocery store today and spent $30 on food, and a microwave dish. they have a nice microwave 1000 watt, not the 700 ones common in motels, and a fridge. with a tiny bit of freezer space. did not get over to play poker this evening, been tending to sleep those hours of the day. its important to do the VBJ play like 3am to 10am thereabouts when its empty most likely. 1 of the 5 spots is still out of service.

the rolls increased to $6598, because ive now got rid of all but $100 worth of the bitcoin that had been sitting around growing by as much as $20 per day when the price went up so quick. when i get into reno there will be no BJ, ill be dependent totally on poker results. i had several $100-200 small wins on the VBJ and ALL losing sessions were immediately wiped out by sending bitcoin to replace the amounts lost. this will no longer be possible to do, so i might now be able to have losing sessions again instead of only winning ones.

good news is the Bovada is back up to $300 again, which means if all goes well, it will eventually be turned into more bitcoin on down the road.

couldve gone to toledo but with no good VBJ in the area i didnt wish to eventually end up tempted to play $15-25 min live table BJ right after i recover a few thousand of the roll. too risky. definitely wouldve come in handy the free housing and friend with the car. the only good poker is 60 miles out in detroit though and ray wouldnt wish to sit in detroit doing nothing all day or all this driving. right now i shouldnt spend any more money to do no traveling for a very long time.

home in reno (crystal bay actually, but close enough)

just logged out of Bovada with only $190 remaining out of $419, lost a few higher priced DON sngs and then a bit in the PLO8. at least ive not lost any of the $500+ in bitcoin slowly being sent to my bank. i was sending $10-15 to it everyday, but im now sending $25-30 to it every day since my bank account is getting so short. one bank account is only about $2000, the other one is still over $3000.

yes this is a long ways from the $19k i had in shreveport, or the $12,800 i left with. theres still a bit less than $6000 left, counting both accounts, and cash in hand. i held off for a few days buying my ticket out of here into reno (cant afford hotel rooms, certainly not around here) but i had no choice but to spend the $506 out of the lake charles airport. it departs 2.31 pm thurs and stops in DFW then i switch planes and arrive in reno at 6.15pm.

been getting the $39 rate for 4 hours poker play sun-thrus but theres nothing at all cheap to sleep fri or sat.. im on the WRONG boat, the isle isnt as good for $1-3 NL. its mostly $4-8 limit here and breaks earlier at night. the other 2 casinos 2 miles away theres no way to go on foot, its over water, so its a 6-8 mile cab ride for $20 way out of the way. im not spending $20 twice (got to return to my room). however if i was on them other 2 boats (nugget and auberge) theres no way to get a cheap room. there is a walmarts within walking distance of there. theres NOTHING u can get to on foot from the isle. if u dont believe me, google maps. (to go on foot from the isle to the golden nugget)

my cab from coushatta cost me $100. the nearest cabs were in lake charles. id been better off trying to get a tour bus into houston, flying out for less,plus wouldve saved money on expenses last 3 days.

i left shreveport so i wouldnt play any more live BJ. this plan has worked out really well, nothings been lost on live BJ since leaving shreveport. the only BJ ive played was on the VBJ in coushatta (dealers angels, but not a good version of it with the shuffle point hidden). no cashback on it either, and close to nothing in comp dollars to eat with. eventually, on the final day i bet too high and lost a bit over $1000 on it before leaving. plus i took numerous beats in the poker room, went thru 5 buyins in an hour or less of $100 each, and had the best of it every time the money i raised or reraised allin preflop or on the flop. lost every time once to ace ten with ace queen when the 10 hit the river. other time i had aa, once i flopped a full house to lose, etc. i put in over 70 hours of poker there, losing over $42 per hour in the long run. going there was a very bad idea, especially since it cost me $300 to get there to begin with. i was in a horrible mood constantly, snapping back at every employee i felt was rude, the staff, the rude players rooting for me to lose, (all regulars) the ones watching the VBJ, the ones with cigarettes too close by, the employees not thanking me for tips or getting an attitude if i never did, and i dont see it ever ending til i get out of the state, on my feet, with small wins, and relaxed not under stress about how ill survive living expenses. my health is getting no better and im sure my teeth are causing other health issues.

if i felt i must leave shreveport to avoid playing BJ, i shouldve went to reno then, back to detroit, or took the train to st louis. i'd been much better off. the whole idea was to never let myself go below $10,000 and if id used much better judgement, i never wouldve. (for if i wouldnt lost over $10,000 in the last month playing BJ in shreveport, i couldve rode out the losses in poker in coushatta, and not felt pressured to win so badly, so i wouldnt been raising my poker buyins). yes, the final day i lost a huge ton of $100 buyins. but the other days i bought in for too much, and tried to bluff when i got frustrated.

got my uber in the reno airport, very nice driver, and it only came to $54. (half of the cost of a cab or less). picked up some free play ran it thru, and im sitting with $5672. of course theres also still about $800 worth of bitcoin/and or bovada which will eventually be sent to the bank, (if i dont lose it), in the process of so much in increments. i havent been able to reach my old landlord because its no longer his cell. this is a nice suite they gave me free 10 nights. id have enough comps unused for about 5 more nights. tomorrow i can do the atm promo next door for another $50. i would now but i must sleep before i play anything. tired. i only chose to come here because i remember kristi the VIP host telling me this winter while living at rays i had 10 free nites to use anytime.

bitcoins price is skyrocketing and women in poker.

So am i doing the right thing tonight? (i'm sitting in my room playing with the $281 online Bovada after the live $1-3 here in coushatta broke up instead of sitting on the VBJ machine). why? because i won $197 there earlier, and didnt wish to keep playing but to go write down the win. oh, $103 more in the poker room too. i'm still here because i have 0 transportation out of here of any kind, no cabs except for the ones in lake charles 36 miles out. only the tour buses to tx.

some would say the right thing is to go back to reno, as low as i am to grind $1-2 since i cant afford $1-3 now. i need to be where housing is $150 week, not $300-400. but i dont wish to spend money flying. too broke. mom says the right thing to do would be to go back to toledo, and live with ray.

i mightve still lost on BJ and VBJ in the past month, but never nearly as much had i stuck to the right bankroll requirements. tonight i did never betting over 2 spots of $35. of course had i not dropped over $1500 on VP in the past month this too wouldve helped.

they renewed my room til friday so this is 4 free nights so far. nice fridge and microwave in the room, wifi works good. once i stop getting these, ill need to pay $100 for a cab to lake charles i guess. but the rooms there too expensive, so i need to go to biloxi or go west. was relieved tonight to find out i can get tomorrow and thurs free, thought my time might be up.

looking in my records, seems the total bitcoin sent to my bank so far is $160. theres still another $425 plus in bitcoin online which could be sent. as more of it is sent, it will help increase the roll

----wrote yesterday and saved to draft----

this room is NOT a good place to play poker, im only still here because my free rooms hasnt yet ended, and im in no hurry to spend big money to leave and spend money to rent them elsewhere. but my hourly here is horrible. Lost $374 in the $1-3 NL today, then recovered most of it on the VBJ. am still barely holding $11,100. it will go lower, ive got expenses to pay to get settled in, nor do i have enough for $1-3 NL anymore. cannot play my best game anymore with $300+ in front of me since i want zero losses. i did good, but it does have swings.

my game has progressed from the OLD days (2004-2009 min buying $40-50) and i cant play well anymore with less than $150 in front of me. but now that im getting so short, playing with over $300 when stuck isnt good either. for i keep losing money trying to bluff so i can get unstuck and go.

i wish i couldve taken a picture of the girl in seat 1. she won 2 big pots, cashed out $1200+ busted one old man who flopped the nuts. they both put in $500+ on the flop, her with KKK and him with nut broadway. very good looking woman under 29 and i was sure she was with the black guy in seat 2, but i was wrong. one hand she busted a guys set of 888 on the flop of 842 with A2 runner runner AA. one of the dealers said shes here quite often, ive never seen her. i wish i wasnt afraid of being caught snapping a photo, so i could have one to post.

heres the problem. she wore headphones, seldom spoke a word, was texting the whole time, and had a shirt saying "poker is my business" with a graph pointing upwards. horrible horrible for a women. a woman is supposed to flirt with the guys, interact with them, and loosen up the game. so the guys give her money. not by sheer suckouts. Karen in Reno Josie in Boston, and cdizzy in winstar do a great job on this, and she did NOTHING to improve the game.

i shouldnt mind so much the lack of food comps when ive got 4 hotel rooms in a row, but this is just not what im used to. i worry ill lose by even going out of the room. getting short of money isnt good for ur confidence level. this is the main reason i shouldve never bet too much in BJ back in shreveport. it destroys ur ability to play poker. think of how comfortable id felt traveling over southern louisiana with the extra $8000. or buying in for more.

its not BJ which got me broke its chasing losses. martingaling poker hurting me as bad as martingaling the BJ

not what i expected

u would think it would benefit me to know that, if im going to play BJ, it would be better to be where all the negative counts will be $1 bets (or 2-3 hands of $1 each). (no more live shoes where the min bet is $5 or $10) but the problem here is two-fold. for one this machine is often full til 3-8am or so. not like the gold strike, (which presumably might be like anza or turtle creek as far as desertion.) no idea if NM is deserted or not and i could be guessing wrong on turtle creek. but i hate not having 3 or 5 spots with only me on it.

and the bigger issue is they hide the shuffle point. now on the shufflemaster machines, with 66% penetration of 4 of 6 decks, this isnt so big of deal and i can get an idea of the count using the red 7s method. which i would assume would work for 4 decks as well as 6, but since its shuffling much sooner, not sure if im adjusting correctly. and the comp rate is hideously low.. only got about $3 or so worth both days for what i ran thru it.

i might be losing due to betting too much, far above what i should be then again, if the machines mostly full, u cannot spread ur risks by betting on the other players back bets. almost 100% make quite a few errors and most are so major u dare not risk betting on them. standing on soft 5 or 6, splitting 4 against 10, doubling on hard 7, standing 13 vs 8 etc. theyre all so dumb. same error every time, especially standing on a soft 4, 5, or 6. none of whom use players cards though they might be confused by the sign it gives "no points". this same sign threw me off in circus too. but it gives comps. not nearly as high as circus.

and i wont get mailers because i dont know what to use for the address, and i wouldnt be back for them no way. so this wont work too well for me longterm.

for the last 8 days ive been adding 1/1000th to the roll every day by withdrawing bitcoin and having it sent to my bank account. so far its been $143 worth. this should be increasing it by 1% every 10 days, (until my access to bitcoin runs out--either thru bovada winnings or the money sitting on bitzino) (BJ site where theres money sitting previously withdrew, about $400 worth as much as bitcoins been rising so quick last 48 hours)

hotel rooms in lake charles appear fairly high too, no uber there either, no bank of america, and the 2 cheaper by the week prospects are much further out from the casino. sure would like something within walking distance, or transportation to it. it might not been good to leave shreveport, unless id gone to a better location. i intended not to end up here, but in biloxi. no decent VBJ in biloxi either.

Trip report coming soon

according to Bravo, im 0.7 miles (with free shuttle service) from a poker room with 4 tables going, plus a VBJ machine with $1 min bets which doesnt shuffle every hand. yet im too tired to do anything but sleep.

won $505 today in the $1-3 NL on the boat in shreveport, then spent most of it on travel expenses and hotel expenses over the memorial day weekend. and if i stay longer this is a much cheaper and safer hotel option with fridge and microwave for less than the $340 minimum per week id paid in shreveport. much closer here to major train routes, and 2 other cities i wanted to visit, by a few hundred miles. i have no idea how the poker games are inside the casino because ive never been in. i need to sleep first. the shuttle is 24 hours.

ill be sending u a bunch of different trip reports in the next few weeks. still holding close to $13,200. (plus $375 online). this is because of small wins and no live blackjack today or yesterday since the big loss. i wont be playing any more BJ which involves large size bets, or bets over $1 in poor counts.

how splash pots effect the outcome

has anyone of u ever opened a bitcoin wallet that is NOT coinbase or circle financing? ive been told its not a good idea to withdraw from gaming sites to them, but to first have a wallet, withdraw to it, then to those sites to ship it on to your bank. i dont know which to open or where. recommendations of good wallets?

instead, my bitcoin is sitting in bitzino, but i dont wish to blow it all on BJ either. theres over $150 sitting in there, with $177 more enroute.

the last 2 days been good at poker. a $659 win, and a $1081 win. this did wonders for my hourly, which dropped to $34.98 per hour (which i referred to as $34) now its back to $38.60 per hour which im calling $38. i've still got $700 on bovada too. glad i canceled the $400 withdraw after the 12 day wait with no luck.

still need to see a doctor, especially since im now feeling like i need to use the bathroom like every 20 minutes, for a microscopic amount. seems to be common once over 45, but its often caused from getting diabetes. hopefully its from drinking so much water.

i think Grump would be well aware on how u need to change the way u play during the splash pot. most of them were reduced to $100 from $300. but trips on the board still brings a $300 splash pot on the next hand. i'm in my favorite seat, (seat 2, right next to the chargers, by the wall where i can lean back without no one seeing my cards or behind me) and the loose asian regular who likes to shove in seat 1.

several limp preflop, and im in the cutoff, button is on seat 3. i pay close attention (swore he didnt see his hole cards) and he shoves about $80 allin. i come allin over the top for $25-60 more with the ace-ten offsuit. i would prefer it be HU. now in the mornings, a lot of older men dont adjust properly to the splash pot, either by folding too much, or not shoving. this is why 2 guys in particular shove blind, which of course isnt good either. 2 got in behind me with about the same amount of chips. lucky for me the board comes Q6789 and i won the pot, which put me at $715 in front of me. the shover had 9-5 offsuit so he didnt look.

so close to an hour later theres $100 splash pot this time. seat 4 is the button, and after many limpers sure enough seat 1 shoves. i didnt see him look, so i try to get it heads up by making it $428 (covering everyone) with QK offsuit. ive still got over $400 more behind, and i really dont want callers. lucky for me everyone got out but seat 1. flop comes K53, then 46 for another 4 card straight. he shoved before me so i waited for him to show, (i didnt want the whole table seeing how weak my hand was for $428 betting). he shows KA, which surprised me so i folded face down, convincing most of the table i had QQ instead of KQ. maybe he looked or maybe he got lucky. shortly thereafter i went to eat. at least he didnt start with more than around $100.

the holiday inn is a really nice and cheap room option on weekends. in the week, im still getting lots of comp rooms, mostly next door. room here good til tues morning.

nice to have clean laundry again for a month. $45 covered pickup, delivery and all the work.

"tour busses leaving shreveport"

quite worried about my money on bovada, since i dont do nearly as well online as in real life, i will lose it all if they dont process the withdrawal. they always approved it in 72 hours before, then u wait for processing. i went with bitcoin because its supposed to be much quicker. they must be out of money or bitcoin, its been 96 hours plus now and still not 1 email. pretty much is the case with all of 2+2. only checks are getting thru and those might just end up bouncing on everyone. doubt they have enough cash to even pay 5% of their customers when they all withdraw at once.

found out today 100 points earned on table games at samstown gives u a free buffet, which is quite easy to earn. ive got 32,000 table games points earned this month alone there. actually won $1,500 today there playing BJ. so this puts me back to over $16,800  its about time i finally had a $1000+ BJ session in this town.

not sure yet if ill leave town tomorrow or where i will go when i do. lost 6 of the last 9 poker sessions, but still $35 hourly overall. i would like to find lower rent again like i had in reno, and i really need to do laundry bad

me and a friend did some reasearch and some phone calls and their is 0 tour bus to anywhere from shreveport. nothing to biloxi, tunica, lake charles, coushatta. nothing. all the tour buses only come from tx to here, or from atlanta and florida to biloxi. u would think there would be at least some kind of bus tour for people living here to take a vacation too. it doesnt even need to be a casino destination, but i find 0 type of any tour bus going to any type of city that leaves from shreveport, nothing but greyhound, amtrak and the airport. id really appreciate being proved wrong.

update--finally got my Bovada bitcoin withdrawal. but i only did $94 instead of the whole thing, just to test it out to see how quick. the real problem i thought was how the cashier on bovada wont let u copy and paste the bitcoin address, but must type it in, so i was terrified of an error, but there didnt seem to be an error. went thru fine. typing one out by hand without mistakes isnt easy. now im ready to try a much bigger one. yeah they sent it while i was in the middle of this blog entry.
