new $200 machine bounty, tues morning aug 2

last nite, about 2am when i was finally awake and done online, i went over to the golden nugget, bought right in for $500 and lost it real fast like to a guy who intimidated me on my left due to him having the only big stack at the time. flop comes up 3 lower diamonds and i lost on a  $40 bet and a shove after a $15 preflop raise i had AK with one diamond, and he had 10 5 for a made flush on the flop. didnt really want a call, but i knew i had outs. eventually i got it back, rebought $500 and built it up to $1137 by the time the game broke. and i finally learned how to get the period to come up on my iphone after a sentence without having to switch keyboards, and how to delete sent messages from my texts. Being able to play beweled at the table for something to do and see new incoming emails is really nice, wish i wouldve got me one of these years ago.

played $4-8 horse including badugi at binions for about 2 hours, winning another $11. barge will be out in force there later today, and im sure barge guy will be there, hopefully he identifies himself so i know who he is. am now in my room worried if its safe to eat food put in the fridge yesterday, potato salad and 2 tuna salad sandwiches. i dont think the fridge is working and getting food cold, and engineering will come look at it. the reason i dont think the fridge is getting cold is my milk tasted really sour so i didnt drink it, and my icecream melted in the freezer portion. would like anyones advice as to whether its safe to eat the food.

seems like the web guard i thought they removed still isnt removed, so as soon as im done typing this, will get ahold of tmobile again to fix it. they shouldnt put that feature on a phone to begin with unless someone asks for it, why block poker related webforums the same way they block nude photos? makes no sense. and farmville suggested i redownload the application but i think i should take a trip to the apple iphone store at fashion show and see if they can get it working.

also im gonna investigate on installing the forum software, but i need to ask the OD for the link again since my old blog no longer exists to look up the link. maybe i can find another one thru yahoo search.

odd no one is commenting on the new $200 bounty, which may not be the full $200 if im running extremely low on money by the time im caught. have not played a single machine all nite since reinstituting the bounty. i thought $200 would be enough to make it meaningful. usually when playing them machines i have way over $200 in them.----just wanted to add this quick before i sleep---
played a little $4-8 horse at binions about 11am-noon and won almost $200, then moved to the 1-2 PLO game starting up, lost $127, and now in room to sleep still up $52 more than i was earlier. and im falling asleep and will be up about midnite or 1am. so hard to sleep in the north tower, maybe i should start taking the south tower further away from the music.

  1. update, the fridge was just replaced by one that works, and to be safe i threw out all the food, it was free anyway. this is a much bigger and nicer fridge

  2. consider this a comment on the $200.00 bounty.

    you should measure your machine losses by month's rent. you could say "last night i pissed away 4 month's rent in a VBJ machine but it could have been 5 month's rent if i had't been counting the cards.

  3. The bounty is meaningless. You will just find out of the way machines that has terrible payouts. If you really want to fix this problem, go see a counsellor, like you have been told hundreds (may be thousands) of times over the last few years.

    It is laughable that your bounty depends on how much money you have in the machine. Also, what about table BJ, that doesn't count?

    p.s. stop playing like an amateur and shove your stack in with a one card flush draw.

  4. pokerdogg, that will work in a way because the machines i want to play and am tempted by are ones its easy to find me on, i didnt play it at all today. and it would be silly to give away $200 if i was only sitting with $5 for a few minutes, the reason for the bounty is to keep me from blowing $100s which i do when i go and feed $100s into the machines and start doubling up bets martingaling. most of the time im at a machine theres over $200 in it, about 90% of the time, so its not like the bounty wouldnt usually be $200. and its to make sure i have at least $200 on me too without having to go get the money.

  5. and u know, i wouldnt have to delete so many comments if they were real names instead of all being made by the same guy creating up fictional famous people such as cliff huxtable. also if there was a way to edit one offensive thing out of a comment instead of the whole comment id like to learn how its done. also comments that mention hookers wont be tolerated on this blog, want to not post anything i wouldnt want certain folks reading

  6. pokerdogg, that will work in a way because the machines i want to play and am tempted by are ones its easy to find me on, i didnt play it at all today...

    No it won't. You have on many occasions played on bad payout machines to avoid detection while a bounty was offered. You did it before, and you will do it again. Guaranteed. Things won't ever change unless you work on the underlying problem, and you can't do that without help from a professional counsellor.

    One day of not playing doesn't mean much. You have had lots of examples where you stay away for days or even weeks at a time, but you eventually go back to the machines.

    ...and it would be silly to give away $200 if i was only sitting with $5 for a few minutes, the reason for the bounty is to keep me from blowing $100s which i do when i go and feed $100s into the machines and start doubling up bets martingaling. most of the time im at a machine theres over $200 in it, about 90% of the time, so its not like the bounty wouldnt usually be $200. and its to make sure i have at least $200 on me too without having to go get the money...

    That ridiculous. Are people supposed to wait till you loss you $5 in the machine, and pull out $200 to feed it before stepping in? You martingale, so obviously you start small and then increase your bets. The best time to catch you is when you have little money in the machine, before you start putting lots of money in. You should WANT TO be caught early, not late.

    p.s. go read my blog, you may find it interesting that my goal is in line with yours.

  7. Tony, just so you know, Lester's new thread on avp is all ready way more readable then this POS blog, simply because of the format. You're really screwing the pooch on this decision. Stop listening to advice from Clifford the big red dog and switch back.

  8. Tony why do you keep saying you want a home and a girl? When I want something I do things to make it happen, I don't just sit around hoping it falls in my lap. If you want what other people have you have to work to make it happen. Blowing all your money on casino games is not going to get you anything you want in life.

  9. TBC, why will the prospect of "losing" $200 (the bounty) keep you off machines when you are more than willing to blow thousands in one sitting on a regular basis? It makes no sense. And why do you shove for so much money with such weak hands all the time?-PogBoy

  11. not sure which goal u mean pokerdogg, but i never start by only putting $5 into a machine, if im down to $5 it means ive lost already almost all. i always put $100 in when i sit, and then more than 1 spot on the vbj ones with the big boobed dealer. and sometimes i start adding to other machines too to double or split so its usually way more than $100 in them. lots of times i put in all the "odd change" so i start with like $184 instead of $100 too

  12. how would i know the link to lesters blog is? he can post it, and i dont have any idea yet when ill be in AC. $200 should work because remember pogboy, when i sit at a machine i dont intend to lose at all, thats why i bet more once stuck to despertaly try and prevent a loss. i dont want to play if i think it might cost me $200, and with me doing the bounty this way, maybe ill put less in the machine if i do play, so yes theres merit to the bounty being done in this fashion. i wonder if socorro is coming to town planning to collect?

  14. Did you read my blog. I listed two goals in my blog. Since you don't have a goal to play X hour in poker this month, so obviously it is the other goal I referred to.

    Besides, I am sure you play more than 200 hours of poker each month already, so that wouldn't be much of a goal for you.

  16. How many times have you held a bounty in your card playing days tony? How many times has it successfully kept you off a machine longer than a few days at a time?

    I will be staying downtown as I said but I am certainly not driving all the way to Vegas to stalk you for 200.00. However, I may just stumble upon you at a machine so beware. Did you decide on the 10PM or 1AM yet? I will need to know at the latest by Friday night as I don't carry a laptop, nor do I text on vacation.

  20. tony u make to many stipulation on your bountys for anyone to even want to waste time with it,cuase if u do get caught u will have 100 reasons why u can't pay.....u need to make it $1 bounty cause thats the only amount u would actually pay and I'm not even 100% sure u wouldn't try and get out of that...

  21. No point having a bounty if you are not willing to pay it under any circumstance. Its not a bounty, it's a vague promise of one, hence no one is interested.

  22. No point in having a bounty that you can change when you feel like it. either have it or don't. Basically what you are saying is, i'll give you 200 if i'm up else i won't.

  25. Tony your insistence on overbet shoving with AK is awesome and inspiring.

  26. maybe nobody cares about your bounty. Just saying....

  27. Tony, if you don't mind a man's hands on your shoulders, I'd be willing to give you a rub down at the tables and sweat you while you play. I'll be in town next week if this sounds good. Also, I'd want to stake half your play. Also, I assume you could get me into the Caesars Diamond lounge, which has been a dream of mine for some time. Keep up the good work on this blog. Love it and look forward to posting more often.
