sun july 31 and avoided a huge loss last nite

in my room downloading things onto the iphone while its charging, such as vegas poker now, and i learned how to shut the web guard off by calling tmobile. yes when u first hook up a phone, its turned on until u ask to shut it off, and until u prove (although i dont see how its really proof) of being 18+ u cannot log into any web forums of adult comment, or gambling related, or guns related etc. and that was why it was blocking me from logging into vegaspokernow.com. has anyone else ever experienced that?

started off losing $132 in the nugget last nite, then went and played VBJ at binions, and eventually walked back in the nugget out about $300 total. couldnt get nothing to play, and finally i had 9K hearts against a button straddle that was not raised, and the flop comes 934 with 2 clubs. i bet $25 into 4 players, and all fold except for the straddler. turn comes 8 and i bet $80 and the straddler makes it $215. should i fold here? i call and river is offsuit 5, he puts me allin and i call and he has 888. i left a little on tilt and broke, and walked to my safe deposit box at the 4 queens. sat at the good paying VP i was told about with the 9-6 payback on jacks or better of 99.54% lost over $300 more, and eventually went to a 3-2 paying live BJ shoe table out $1285. started counting the cards, and eventually got off the table slightly AHEAD for the day, and went to buy an iphone charger at the walgreens up the street, and am now in bed out $16 for the day. couldve been a whole lot worse. also i got my host to give me all 3 nites free so i wouldnt have to use any comps.

still wishing i had an instruction manual in print form and having trouble reading pdf files, even though i put adobe reader on here before, guess ill add it to my phone now while im thinking about it.------about 3 hours later---i left the room again to do something at binions, and now i really am in room to sleep. ended up winning about $150 more in the poker room, and now im back to $12k. and its so nice to finally be able to post on twitter and in comments section on here from my phone. and someone told me theres a better slightly higher priced data plan from tmobile i should switch to where my network speeds will be faster.

  1. ...i bet $25 into 4 players, and all fold except for the straddler. turn comes 8 and i bet $80 and the straddler makes it $215. should i fold here? i call and river is offsuit 5, he puts me allin and i call and he has 888...

    Why would you bet $80 on the turn? You have top pair, ok kicker, but out of position. If you put him on a draw, 1/2 pot is enough to price him for his draw. $40 bet is probably about right.

    When he raised you, what can you actually beat? Against typical 1/2nl players, a turn raise is a monster. I put him on a least 2 pairs. Insta-muck.

  2. I'm guessing you have auto-correct on your phone. Stop, Stop, STOP, being an idiot and get on AVP. Everyone's warned you and look at your comments the last few posts. Under 10 on each one. On VPN, there were 10-20 posts on average. This is my last post. Good bye, I'll hit you up with an email next time I'm in Vegas in October.

  4. Tony you can download the user manual for your iPhone by opening Safari and hitting the little book icon on the bottom of the page. It should be the one that is second from the right. You then choose the the iPhone user guide from the menu that pops up and then hit the icon in the middle which shows an arrow coming out of a box. That will download the user guide as an app on your phone and you can consult with it anytime you wish. It works pretty slick. Good luck.

  5. Tony, may be you can download PokerJournal and keep track of your poker results. I will be shocked if you actually do it, but you never know.
