just boarded at oxnard cali, paid $74 for a ticket to san jose, will be arriving late tonite. and i will make sure tonite i lock my money up at the casino there and the bank tomorrow and stay at a very safe hotel that costs alot no one will ever guess im at for 1 day instead of the motel 6 near bay 101.
my friend tiffany (sexylilvixen) formerly of neverbeg who WEC poker knows lives in san jose sunnyvale area, and she claims thats an extremely nice area with no bad neighborhoods. she called me from bay 101 last nite and is telling me about some new law, and im wondering if anyones heard of it before? she is one of about 10 people i can trust with my phone number. the new policy in san jose that she claims is posted all over bay 101s cardroom is that u cannot play more than 20 hours in a row without a 4 hour break by law. someone please check on this, it seems weird and im wondering how its enforceable?
and i did well last nite at the 5 card plo8 game in ventura, i won over $325 in the game, but it broke up about 4.30am and then i quickly lost back $200 of it in the NL holdem game, before taking a cab to my room at the motel 6 as soon as it was light outside. wasnt far away at all but definitely was too uncomfortable to walk it carrying all that cash, or to even be in my room for any period of time.
got really spooked yesterday when i arrived at the ventura metrolink/amtrak stop. a guy called out to me from his car who doesnt want his phone number, and possibly his avp name given out, although he did post my picture on his twitter. he told me hes been following my blog and my twitter for some time and that he lives in ventura not far from the cardroom. and offered me a ride. now i was worried that he knew how much cash i had on me and id be robbed as soon as i got into his car, once he drove me to an isolated area, so i was relieved to make it to my motel 6 in 1 piece, but still i didnt feel comfortable at all he knew where i was staying, and i wasnt sure if he knew my room number, and i definitely didnt feel safe sleeping there with that much cash. was so glad to make it out of there safely today and to be safely on the amtrak. at least i wont run into anyone from avp on this train. and im definitely getting that money off my hands first thing on arriving in san jose and will stay in the fanciest and most safest of hotels for 1 nite in the meantime before i get to a casino or bank. had there been 2 guys in the car instead of 1, id definitely have not gotten into the car. glad he turned out to be cool and nothing happened, but i dont want to put myself into that position ever again.
and im considering a serious change of schedule since ive not heard from britni, and the other friend in eugene im not so sure i want to see, shes too old for me. i dont really want to be in oregon or wa anyway, i want to be on the east coast near foxwoods and to find a cheap safe apt convenient to foxwoods or elsewhere in that general area. although living near commerce is nice because commerce is certainly a safe place to store my cash. im still at a roll of $13,600. so when i leave san jose, i might not even go to oregon, i might go to sacramento, then tahoe or reno, and then straight into chicago/philadelphia, on into ac nj. its $372 for amtrak and if i take a private sleeper car for my convenience, to make it a hell of a lot nicer way to travel, its $446 extra on top of that. i wouldnt even consider taking a plane even if free to be safe.
