worried about the future

still waiting for grouchie to answer his emails about fixing the blog, does anyone else want to do it instead? and after last nites big $1600 loss, knocking me down to only $11,400 i think ive overextended myself. i dont see how ill be able to maintain monthly expenses of approximately $1500 a month, (alot more than im used to paying) when u consider rent, internet, phone, food, cabs, and miscellanous expenses. i added it up.

and last nite i lost big because i went out and played the VP and dropped $500-600 then went back into the poker room to try and recover. sat in a $3-5 Nl game with lots of $1000 stacks (shouldnt play over a level im comfortable with and used to) but i was in a hurry to win cause i was tired, (mistake too) and i immediately told them id go allin on the first hand. looked down and seen aa, so i shoved allin, but no one called dammit. got up about $150 on that table and had $1280 in front of me, then proceeded to lose it all. the final with a hand of 46 diamonds (called small raise to 20) and the flop was 256 with one diamond, bet, raise, my allin for about $460 and then someone elses allin with a set of 5s that held up.

  1. If you budget 300 bucks a day for gambling you will never go broke. What part of that don't you understand?

  2. lester that isnt true at all. just my new monthly expenses would have me broke in 6 months. to not go broke i must take in over $1500 a month just to break even and that would mean my money would never grow. u can lose $300 in 30 minutes, and then do NOTHING but sit in an empty apt all nite? u can also lose $300 many times in a row too. but what do u know since gambling isnt how u make ur income? and hows the casinos around fargo ND if i came there to live and u drove me around.

  3. Tony playing 46 and going all in with junk hands is what is going to make you go broke. Welcome to the real world of living expenses.

  4. 1) If the blog problem you're talking about is the type size, try hitting CTRL and the minus (-) key together, once or twice. If that fixes if (which it probably will), then it was just a matter of how your browser is displaying the web page you're looking at, not a problem with how the blog published (which looks normal to me).

    2) Why do you say you would have nothing to do but sit in an apartment if you hit your loss limit quickly? You can go to a movie, watch movies on Netflix, read books, make friends and do things with them, call your son, take up a hobby (bowling, golf, chess, whatever), go to a gym for a workout, or a zillion other things. I have many times played for less than 30 minutes, found that it was not going to be a good day (bad luck, bad play on my part, or whatever), called it a day, and gone home to do something more enjoyable.

    If you are stuck and you are not having fun, and the reason you are not having fun is because you are stuck, then it's okay to quit while citing this to yourself as the reason: I want to have fun. I am not having fun. So I will stop this unfun activity, now.

  5. rakewell its doing that on EVERY website, not just my blog, will check out ur fix. also about to make a phone call and leave. i spend too much time here doing nothing but browsing the web. and i dont really want to have fun, i want to make money instead if im having fun instead of making money it causes me to feel miserable. i enjoy making money far more than i do having fun.

  6. So you sat at a 3/5NL table, and got AA and shoved preflop, and everyone folded? lol You don't say what you sat down with, but gee, you overbet bigtime at a table where you just sat down.

    $1500 monthly expenses isn't a lot to the people who read your blog. You're complaining about something we all have been facing our whole lives. It's like whining that "Gee, my baby craps his diaper twice day" or "Now I have to fill my gastank once a month and it's expensive". Man up. Play more. Win more.

  7. Buy a cat, and see if you can keep it alive for 30 days. That will be both fun, and challenging. I would bet you $1000 that you can't do it.

  9. if you only played poker you might be able to survive, but you keep playing machines and other table games.

  10. I don't understand why you think that making money and having fun are mutually exclusive. You should be doing both. If you're miserable OR you're losing, either one is reason to quit for the day.

  11. Wow. Youre a mess and nothing will change until you man the fuck up and fix it yourself. And I dont know about everyone else, but i am 28 years old and live in.a $400k house with my wife. If you want to be a success, develop some accountability and stop acting like a victim because you cant control your gambling addiction.

    $1500 a month? You mean you can't average $100 a day playing poker? If you make $100 a day, that is $3000 a month. In one year you will double your current bankroll without breaking a sweat. So easy...

    Lester, your chance to be Tony's personal chauffeur! What are you waiting for?
