VBJ loss at the riviera

was hiding in the water pool at the city park, and was throwing pinecombs at people, and i woke up when a knight on a white horse saved me from a great white shark that was about to bite me. only had about 5 hours sleep, but finally awake just enough to post before i fall back asleep.

thanks to rakewell for his blog, which i read right before i fell asleep, but too tired to say anything. i never realized pokerdogg read his blog. i have tried to show cards when the hands over less often than when i used to so im down to only doing it on about 75% of hands now instead of all. still too much i know.

i was tired and rode the bus back to riv, (come to think of it took a cab cause pissed i was stuck and in a hurry) and was aggravated no game on friday nite, man its dead after the wsop so i sat at a BJ table to get back my $215 i was still out. kits of 3-2 tables there and decided to sit at one. i had it all back didnt leave cause count got slightly plus, and then proceeded to get stuck and pissed betting way too much and at one point lost 3 bets of $225 each. ended up leaving stuck $815. mostly cause i was so angry at the dealer sabrina for being so "unfriendly". she never said a word to anyone and wasnt like the asian guy or asian lady just before her who acted real happy when players would win. before i lost the big hands, id won a big bet on all 3 hands about 10 min before that, and she didnt seem happy at all and didnt say a word, so it pissed me off and i didnt ask for change to tip like id been planning to when i won the pot, and instead decided to play a few more hands to see if she said anything on the following hand so i could tip. was waiting for her to speak up so i could tip and leave and then proceeded to lose hand after hand getting more pissed. no one wants to  play when the dealers arent glad u are winning. she seemed pissed about being at work when she first came in and there was a big discussion about whose card someone had left behind. and i must return to sleep. new roll $11,300 is all thats left.

  1. TBC, have a look at the following, you are going to really struggle in any game over 50c/$1 or $1/$2 full of fish tourists the way you play, especially given these videos that are available, check this one out:

  2. Tony, I was reading Pokergrump's blog long before yours. I used to read a whole bunch of different blogs when I first started playing online (6-7 years ago?). I pretty much stopped reading all of them in the last 3-4 years. I started reading Pokergrumps again recently because of his posts on VPN.

    Do you really show 75% of your hands??? OMG, that is just crazy. Tony, most people don't care how/why you play a hand the way you do, and those that do care, showing them your cards give them information to hurt you. STOP this nonsense at once. I do show my cards sometimes, but I do it selectively, usually in small pots and obvious situations, to reinforce my image of a tight player that always have the goods. I am able to use that image to steal a lot more pots than people realize. However, I probably show less than 2% of my hands.

  3. TBC--I hope you will read Rakewell's letter to you several times and really consider his advice. If you take it to heart it will only improve your game.

  6. Am I reading this right? You were down 200$ for the day. So you decide to play BJ. Now you are down 800$ for the night. Upset over a dealer...she was a girl who was pretty and you wanted her to WANT YOU.


    Why didn't you go play poker?


    Tony, if you do not answer this question, I will never read your blog again.


    Why didn't you go to work?
    Why didn't you go play poker?
    Poker is your JOB? YES?

    By the end of the weekend you will be under 10k.

  7. Is it ever a good idea trying to get unstuck playing bj? Why do you keep doing it and then blaming everyone else for it? The dealer is there to deal the cards, not be your personal cheerleader. If you want adoring fans cheering you on at bj, heed some of the millions of pieces of advice you have gotten in the last six years about how to be nicer to people and you might make a steady friend or two.

  9. just got a collect call from Tony in the las vegas county jail. Now the first thing i did after what happened the last time, was to verify the info was correct, so i called both the jail and the casino to verify this actually happened...

    I am sure this really happened, and Tony was able to approve this post from jail using his cell phone. LOL.

  10. Tony, looks like your old blog on VPN is more popular now than your new blog here. You may want to check it out.

  11. That was nice of the jail to allow him Internet access to approve that comment. Maybe I'll stay there next trip. Free Wi Fi.

  12. why didnt i go to play poker? because id just LEFT a poker game i was in with grouchie at osheas cause i needed to sleep, so i jumped a cab to riviera, but was stuck over $258, not what grouchie claimed in his figures (he has me stuck $310)so i thought id get it back in there on the way to my room across the street, only thing was there was NO POKER GAME at 11pm, odd i know, for a friday nite, and the one good BJ player who often plays cash poker for freeroll hours at the riv kept talking to much about the table BJ there offering 3-2 i decided to try it. and that dealer sure wasnt good looking, older lady with no personality and unhappy to be working that nite, but often a dealer will root for the players and be glad to see them win in the hopes of getting a tip. she had only dealt like 2-3 hands when i won the huge bet and said no comment of any kind, except that she wasnt happy to be working from her and the supervisor talking about a left behind players card by someone else as she was coming in to deal. i wouldve probably left after winning the big hand except i wanted to tip her first, and just didnt feel like it when she didnt seem happy for me and i thought maybe if i won another hand or 2 she would say something or at least comment on me doing well and then i was gonna tip and leave but she continued to say nothing to anyone at the table, not just me and i was starting to get pissed as i began losing hand after hand.
