time to update

its time to keep this on the blogger updates, so it doesnt get too buried.

Its great to be back in vegas, and great i got to meet everyone at the private riviera tourny set up months ago on my behalf. and so nice to again have rooms on fridays and saturdays. funny thing was, right after i left ac NJ, i finally started getting room offers, and cash offers in my emails. i hadnt been there long enough to be in the system when i was there. got 2 additional free nights and $75 at the revel ill never see (expires july 8) and 2 nights a week and $28 every single week at the taj til the end of august. plus some extra comps.

and i won again tonight. had only 1 bad day since coming to vegas, in which i dropped to the $3100s from the $3500s. now im back in the $3700s, and getting closer to july 1, when i have $300 in free play i can pick up at binions. so nice to have everything in walking distance and never have to leave downtown, kind of like why i spent almost all my time in AC divided up between the taj and the showboat. odd thing was, the one bad day i did have, all the loss came from poker. ive not had any bad losses on the VBJ since returning to vegas. i guess thats cause the payback here is so much better, and since binions still has 1 good BJ machine, it keeps me off the VP machines. in a way it kind of bothers me a bit when the loss comes from poker, because to succeed in life i really need to do well everytime i play poker.

and heres a poll. should i figure out how to remove the disqus commenting system here since this isnt the blog i use anymore? im afraid id lose months of old comments and thats not really my intention.

wish i had a little bit of online money, and also someone to stake me in at least 1 wsop daily tourny, or even a golden nugget or binions classic before it ends. but im not going to spend money depositing if its not really necessary. nor do i want to screw up my pending $250 withdrawal at bovada thats gonna take forever.

so tonight after winning $116 at the nugget and leaving (lots of good games in there tonight) i was sitting on the VBJ at binions a little while, when really i shouldnt since id already earned the daily 300 points. but even still, its about a break even machine, and with comps its over 100%. while i was sitting there playing, i seen a guy talking about his winning craps system on the machine for craps, (the craps machine is usually full of people when the BJ one is empty). which is good in a way, since i like playing alone, and theres only 1 BJ machine left that pays 3-2. i just find it funny so many more people play that machine when theres no way to get it up to 100% like there is with the BJ one. especially when a lot bet both sides to try and get 300 points without risk. but still its 98.5 payback at best, not counting comps, cashback or wheel spins. and the BJ one is 99.69% not counting that.

anyway, this guys talking about how he hasnt lost on it and also lives in laughlin alot and plays a craps machine there. (i later got his email). not sure yet what ill send him. he claims he gets free rooms there all the time, and is now at the plaza downtown vegas. and that hes building up a bankroll to bet high, wants to bet huge money on the machine at caesers, didnt even know caesers has a craps machine, wouldnt think harrahs would offer it as stingy as their machines are. maybe he means live tables? he claims hes not lost at all in laughlin with his system and keeps winning. never bothered to learn what his system was, but i know theres none that work for craps. seems it involves martingaling 3 hands in a row and placing big bets across then taking them down. have tried a strategy somewhat like that years ago, and always would get the inevitable big loss, and gave up on craps and nowdays only play BJ instead.

just goes into how pissed off i am to have such a low bankroll though, for i feel since im a lot smarter to understand how the BJ machine is a much better bet to get the 300 points when most think the craps machine is the better bet, why other people all have more money than me. dont seem fair dont seem right, when i feel everyone else is so much dumber than me (as far as book sense goes that is,) on the things that really matter when it comes to beating gambling and being an AP. yeah i have done some dumb things, (playing machines with poor paybacks) but at least i knew when they were dumb. i did it out of frustration, but not because i was mentally retarded like most people are.

whats up with the green chip forum, and would like to hear from people who play at bovada

i looked to see where people who are still clicking on this blog are coming from, and its showing people from green chip forum, but when i go to look to see whats talking about me over there, it wont show me because i dont have a membership. obvious someone there has a link to my blog, not sure why, theres no beatable VBJ around here and no particular special table game i know of.

will be glad to be out of here and back in vegas, thanks to the generosity of pete peters. and in time for the meetup. down to $2800

also i got a free $60 on bovada which is now up to just over $300 but none of it can be withdrawn til 180 points are cleared.

still in AC, and still have a new forum up

just here to remind old followers about the new blog and forum where i update daily, semidaily, or almost daily. also its been changed to where u no longer are required to login to view the forum. of course, u still need to login to post there.

things arent so good, wish id never came to AC, at least not this time of the year or without a lot more money. am outside on the boardwalk walking up to taj from ballys, (although right this second im briefly seated of course). just lost my entire buyin of $150 in the best $1-3 NL game ive ever seen, all kind of loose action 5 people calling $35 preflop raises, 10 way action in my BB, etc. sure wish i had the bankroll to play in that type of game. a deepstacked guy sitting there next to his woman whose playing loose called my $35 with 67 and flopped 2 pair, but i missed the flop and got out. when down to the final $89, and 5 called his $6 preflop, i shoved with 88 and only he called with 79 offsuit. and he beats me with a pair of 9's. now go ahead and comment here (ignore what i said in my last blog entry) and tell me, (so i know who reads this for one thing) was i smart to not continue to sit in that game since its over my bankroll, or was i dumb to leave such a good table when it would be probably one of the best games in ac right now? i just dont like to sit in games where people have seen me lose, (because it makes me continue to lose usually) and also i really wanted to play stud at the taj instead. just was too lazy to walk the 7 blocks up the boardwalk over there when i first woke up at the pool at ballys.

for those who dont know, all the money went in prefkop. and for those telling me to continue and play, how much should i rebuy for out of a $3100-3200 roll? min buyin is $150 and max $500.

how did i get 134 views here yesterday?

cannot imagine whose clicking on it since everyone by now seems to have known ive moved it to, at least everyone seems to have known by now, the number of signups is at 241 now and isnt moving much, moved rather huge the first day or two. just letting those who havent realized it yet see my blog site and where to now find it. and i kind of wish id NOT came to AC or at least waited til things are cheaper here and i had more money. and its over $320 to take a train into laughlin or vegas, and seems to always be sold out if not bought ahead of time. Fl is only $165 and is never sold out. havent even looked up airfares.

ok, to see more, go check out my new online forum at
