i do a lot of horrible dumb things i guess due to frustration

THIS IS AN OLD BLOG POST TYPED ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO I PUT IN ARCHIVES AND NEVER POSTED, BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT MIGHT MAKE ME LOOK BAD. WELL TONIGHT IM DOWN TO $1900 IN LAUGHLIN, AND IF U ARE READING MY TWITTER FEED, U WILL SEE WHAT IM ABOUT TO POST EVERYWHERE ON THE NET WILL GET ME BANNED FROM EVERY FORUM THAT EXISTS AND LOSE ALL MY FRIENDS PERMANENTLY, AND ALSO GET ME IN VERY SERIOUS LEGAL TROUBLE. SO INSTEAD OF POSTING ALL THEM THREATS, ILL JUST POST THIS INSTEAD. WHEN I CAN CALM DOWN SOMEWHAT ILL GO AND TYPE UP TODAYS POST, ALSO I MUST GET OUT OF HERE FOR MY OWN SANITY BUT I HAVE ALMOST NO MONEY AND NOWHERE TO GO, I DONT HAVE ANYWHERE NEAR ENOUGH TO PLAY EVEN THE SMALLEST OF POKER GAMES AND LIVE ANYWHERE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- wasting money on cabs tends to be one of the WORST and most costly, plus i keep getting angry at cabbies when u first get in the cab and they start asking questions that are none of their business and that they dont really mean or care about really, i guess they only ask to try to find out if ur a tourist or a local to know if they can take advantage of u or not. Such as saying hows ur day going, or where are u here from.

u see when im having a bad day, (almost always due to heavy losses--to me any loss is heavy) i tend to not feel like wanting to talk to ANYONE, and just want to be left alone, basically i am anti-social, dont like being around people, and want to do ALL my gambling alone in private. and im sure thats the reason i play machines, and why id prefer online poker if i only felt safe putting money there. U would be surprised how many las vegas locals NEVER have played online poker. They worry about the integrity of the game. LOL. some people dont trust the VBJ machine either, and worry it cheats. i worry the same way playing with LIVE dealers, at least the machine dont care about getting TIPS and therefore has no incentive to try to cheat u if u are too broke to tip, unlike a LIVE dealer at BJ or poker. Why do u think so many casino quit having the dealers shuffle the cards? It wasnt just to end the nonstop calls for setups.

so yeah, I dont like people asking me bullshit rhetorical questions they arent really interested in knowing the answer to when im out a ton of moolah. Before i lose my sanity, id be well-advised to get out of vegas and disappear to a place where there is NO gambling and not telling anyone til after i am there. and i should do it while ive still got $4300 left and before im too broke to live once im there. i feel so horrendously broke since that was at $6300 just the other day. and i dont like bums coming up to me and bothering me either. Or people that i assume might be bums, even when im unsure. i especially dont like it when i feel like the guy who is asking me is racist, only asking me because im white, and he feels like that gives him the right to take it from me. This one guy i see whose homeless and black, carries a backpack, alot of times is at the bus stop, but never boarding a bus, its been more than once hes came up to me and, without any money or any intention of playing VBJ, asked me if im playing 2 hands, (or 3) with the sole intention of planning on sitting down to claim the credits sitting in the machine besides me if he thinks i dont realize they are there. so a day or 2 ago when he saw me and asked, i just didnt reply back or acknowledge he was there, cause im sick of it, then he remembered me, and muttered something about me being an asshole as he walked off. i get tired of hustlers coming up thinking im too blind or dumb to see the credits in the machine next to me when im playing 2 or 3 hands and have my players card in all 3 machines, simply cause the count is now negative enough to where im at only 1 spot betting $1 to risk the bare minimum until the deck is better. i've never sat down at a spot where someone is playing 2 machines, i LOOK before i sit, now sometimes a random tourist makes that mistake, but they usually have a better attitude, and are apologetic and feel bad. i dont know people are so blind if theres a hand in progress with a players card. anyone can see the credits.

one day a black lady sat down who was nicely dressed, when i was talking to some young girl a spot away on the other side that i was explaining my system to who seemed to be single and good looking, so i didnt mind her sitting there so much. (the girl, about 25 or so, not the 50-60 yr old lady.) while im sitting there talking to her, this black lady (who as it turned out wasnt a scammer but someone well known to security there) sits down and is looking at the machine, (i didnt see her because im busy talking to the girl) and suddenly i turn around and seen shes hit the cashout button, she says she hit it by mistake and was sitting down to play it and was trying to see how it works to bet it or put the money in. anyway i blew up at her, security came over and seperated us, and explained to me that she was a regular, no thief, and that i couldnt talk to her that way, but didnt throw me out, knowing i play all the time and get free rooms thru the host alot. they said it was an accident and told me away from her that i should be able to see shes no bum. i didnt repeat this to security but i could only see she was black so i felt i was about to be scammed. so i ended up playing a different machine that was empty away from her after talking to security right outside the door away from the machine id been playing. Security knows about the bums messing with me alot, but they also happened to know that lady and said i shouldve known it was unintentional. anyway thats when i discovered the better VBJ machine next door in circus thats different than the one in slots of fun. all 3 machines in slots of fun were pretty full then because one of the machines was out of service and after 10am or so they start filling up. pretty dead like 4am to 10am, best time to play. laughlin is better because they have more machines there, and far less players. i imagine deadwood might be the same, but not sure. ive discovered all i can by messaging so many casinos thru facebook and asking. there are a few casinos with the machines, and all the VP in deadwood paybacks are horrible.

the machine INSIDE circus instead of slotsoffun has 4 decks, slotsoffun has 6 and shuffles 2 3rds of the way thru. the one at circus shuffles 80 cards (1 1/2 decks out of 4) much earlier, but with the slightly better rule of standing on soft 17 instead of hitting, and although all the strategy charts ive seen are for either 6 deck or single deck, 4 deck should be better than 6 deck. but in single deck with a count of 0 u double down 11 against A and in 6 deck u only hit it, so for 4 decks i would?? would need to freshen up on 4 deck rule changes. but with the poor penetration not sure whats better to play. a HUGE advantage on the circus machine though--it SHOWS u each time the dealer shuffles at the 80 card mark, so u can always track it accurately. so which is better to play?

  1. Tony, I am worried about your state of mental health. I know I give you a hard time sometimes - it may seem like I'm making fun of you - but I'm really concerned that someday soon you are going to do something to really hurt someone or yourself.

    I am going to continue to repeat my advice until it gets through your head:

    1. Get back in counselling, and look after your mental health.
    2. Get some assistance to find a job - any kind of job, even part-time. This will give you some stable income, and you won't be so stressed about money all the time.
    3. Find some stable housing - get back on the SSI list, but in the meantime find somewhere you feel safe and STAY there.
    4. Find a church to attend on a regular basis, where you can develop some friendships and perhaps take advantage of any services available to you. And GIVE BACK - volunteer through the church to help others. You'll be amazed at how good it makes you feel.

    You can't continue to live your life like this - it obviously DOESN'T WORK. Nothing is going to change for you, until YOU make some changes.

    Good luck.

    David

  4. Tony - Perhaps now is FINALLY(?!?!?!) the time to quit the machines? I'm not sure how your roll went from $4000+ to $1900 in a matter of a day, but I have to assume you broke yourself on the VBJ. Check yourself into gamblers anonymous. You have an addiction and you can't cure yourself. Give up on the wish / hope that the machines payout more than you put in. It's not going to happen. The machines are there to make money, just as the casinos. You're never going get money out of them.

  7. Tony, I'm not on twitter, but I just read your twitter feed. Hope you have the self control to cut yourself of from the machines now, take a bit of time to reflect on your life plan, before you have zero $ left. Good luck, sir.

  8. Tony.

    Friendly advice. With all due respect. Go back to Las Vegas. Get a job. Get a bike. Get a cheap apt. Make some attempt at a life and normal human contact outside of the holographic, busty, VBJ dealer.

  10. The TBC conundrums:

    1)Not knowing if his posts are truthful or total bs designed to elicit drama and increase views to his blog.

    2)Knowing that despite all the good intentioned people who would like to see Tony fashion a better life for himself, all the helpful advice will fall on deaf ears.
