about to go to sleep

found a room not too much for a week, not sure how safe it is, and how convenient it is, and ive not been doing good at all. safely got the money locked up in that safe deposit box but rolls down to around $11,600 out about $2000 since leaving ventura, and i think the games here are pretty wild big action and big rakes too. what im NOT used to is 3 people having to post a blind. and my stuff is still in sexylilvixens car since i left another hotel and i need a clean shirt, all ive got is laptop case with my charger and phone charger.

shoved the chips across the table way too hard when losing a big pot last nite, and also visited garden city for the first time, there u can buyin $1000 in the $2-3-5 blinds game. maybe the large blinds making me play more under stress, along with the high cost of a place to live, but i certainly feel its beatable for at least $150-300 a day over the long run, but i think i need a larger roll of at least 20k, and only having about half of it puts me under too much pressure to win QUICKLY and not get stuck. which is hard on me emotionally. how much do u guys think u need to live in cali and not go bust and have a large enough roll?

if i lose more during the course of this week, ill cancel my plans to go to seattle or the east coast, and head straight for reno where i can relax a while and get an apt very cheaply for a REAL VACATION/BREAK. not sure how i could win enough at poker in reno, as dead as i hear NL is, and with a 3 casinos banned at there, that offer NL, but i would like a quick train ride away (no buses to deal with) and as much as i hate traveling long distances id go there instead of vegas cause its faster and id want to do it FAST if i get mad again.

  1. The extra blind means more money in the pot to fight over, makes perfect sense the game will be more action oriented.

    Did you hit anyone?

    I hate to remind you, but lots of people have warned you about the large rake and high living expenses in Cali. Someone also mentioned the game is beatable (it may have been WECPoker), but you need a big bankroll because the game is action oriented. Why are you asking this question now?

    Precisely the reason why I responded the way I did, when you posted in my blog to get ready to meet you at Tulalip. I was pretty sure you will run into this kind of scenario going to Cali. You can run, but you can't hide from your problems.

  2. What is your definition of a REAL VACATION/BREAK. Typical people take a vacation by doing something different/going somewhere different than they do/go in their everyday life. You're going somewhere with casinos and playing poker all day. That's no different than your everyday life.

  3. pokerdogg of course i didnt hit anyone, just shoved them angrily and thought maybe id get asked to leave, but no.

    and sbr, by a real vacation, i meant a break from living day to day week to week, and having a steady address for a month in reno where its cheap. getting tired of stress. its gonna make me snap.

  7. What's it going to take for you to realize that Vegas is the best place for you to make a living playing poker? Every time you go to California you just end up losing a bunch of money.

    Didn't know you were asking me. I have no idea how much is enough money to get resituated in California. I just don't think $13k is enough.

    I don't think anyone can answer this question, because no one knows what your win rate is at what kind of games/stakes. You also play anything from 40NLHE to 30/60 stud, how the hell can anyone figure out what BR you need?

    Most people take vacation by leaving their steady address, and live in different places day to day and having fun. For you, it is having a fixed address and play poker (work) every day.

    It is certainly a good idea to get some stability in your life, whatever you want to call it.

    BTW, you are supposed to do something FUN when you are on vacation.

  11. The best thing you can do for yourself is go to Kansas and see your son and mom. Your son would be more than excited and he deserves it. Just do the simple things in life and stop thinking of gambling for a few days and regroup

  13. Tony, what DO you like to do for FUN?? I think you do need a break from poker every now and then, but I'm not sure what else you enjoy doing. Maybe you need some kind of hobby/sport that you can do once in a while to get your mind off poker and your bankroll.

    With your bankroll, I still think the best place for you is Vegas. The only downside is the temptation of machines ... if you can conquer that, I think you'd do just fine over the long run at poker.

    I still think you should take/post some photos ... it'd make your blog more interesting.

  14. Tony, there is a great free app for Iphone called poker near me.
    It tells you all the poker rooms around you or for any city you put in along with what games run there, what the buy in is, what the blinds are, rake, etc.
