in my room about to sleep, tomorrows checkout day

well for the first time since coming to los angeles, im finally gotten back everything i came to cali with. (including this week's rent). arrived in cali with $13,500 and now have a roll of $13,600. i definitely are of the opinion lots of good beatable games exist at the commerce, IF U HAVE THE RIGHT BANKROLL, which i do think i have for the first time ever, all the times ive came to cali in the past am usually under 10,000 usually by a lot. i do think i shouldve spent more time playing bigger limits and less time in the "unbeatable" $40 NL, but ive won over $200 in it before too. a lot of poorly rolled good players claim its beatable, but then again, their motivation in the game is better than mine. but then again unlike what i thought all last year and why i wasnt traveling, i now think i have a large enough roll to live OUTSIDE of vegas too and take a road trip. ive learned about DAILY plo8 games that exist at foxwoods and daytona beach, among others. playing different games, such as $20-40 and $30-60 stud for a change is nice too. i just wish Bodogs games were looser so i could try and build up money online when too far from a poker room. Also i remembered that i forgot to renew my PO box for this month, and i just got thru calling them now and paying to renew it over the phone, so at least all my mail isnt being sent back, (which might end in closing my bank account if they thought they didnt have a valid address.) and i dont think my mom understands i need MORE than just a copy of my birth certificate to enter Canada to see my relatives. She was messaging me on facebook thru her cat's facebook page.

so heres the cause of todays big $900 win. $320 of it came from the players share of the omaha bad beat jackpot. the rest of it was earlier winnings, $67 from $40 NL, and the rest of it in the $400 NL that i won some big hands in. i am wondering if i shouldve spent MORE time in $400 NL since i have the 30 buyins, its just i am not used to $5-10 blinds so im not sure its a good idea, because i would feel so shortstacked in the game. $5-10 blinds with a $400 buyin is like $1-2 with an $80 buyin. and that can be lost easily, i know i have enough buyins, but mentally it could be draining and i know pokerdogg would understand. still wish rakewell would post and suggest a time to play on bodog when i wouldnt be away or asleep., hard to find.

  1. Not sure if you need a passport to get into Canada, but you would need one to get back in the States.

  5. Tony, are we to believe that you never played any BJ the whole time you have been in Cali?

  6. You need more than just a Canadian birth certificate to enter Canada. At a minimum you need some other form of picture ID such as driver's license. Much better if you have a passport though.

  7. First time posting on your blog Tony

    Did any one mention this blog format sucks!!

    Congrats on staying afloat and near all time highs on your roll

    I think in theory a 5-10 NL game is too big for your roll, however if you think you can shortstack it profitability then go for it. Allocate 5 buy-ins TOTAL to it (to be played ONLY on 5 separate days) and give it a shot.

    Daytona Beach does not long a great option from a location perspective for you.
    If you are going to FL I would make it down to Pompano Beach, at least, you have other card rooms not too far away. Much better option IMHO.
    Not much around Daytona..apart from a beach and a racerack as I found out this summer.
    Any think carefully about making a trip Portland..do not do it on a hope and a prayer, you will be let down

    Good luck

  10. Tony you know it is not the cat itself on Facebook right? I wonder how people in Lyons feel about friend requests from Mr. Mittens.
