i didnt follow the advice

was given great advice, didnt take it. new roll $1900. now my new max bet should only be $9. and i didnt want to follow the advice, because i couldnt handle being stuck, and also because i didnt want to have to play far more hours to finally earn the comps for saturdays room. wanted to run thru the MAX coin as quick as possible. (not max bet) also the pit boss gave me 2 free buffet tickets.

flame away.

  1. Why flame? We all know the inevitable will occur...broke, homeless, and then back taking government handouts like the hypocrite you are.

  3. out of curiousity, i decided to go back and follow the advice, and for 4 hours i never made a bet of over $9. somehow i recovered $55, and an additional $13 more in comp dollars.

    the real reason the advice is so hard to follow is others are right, in the long run it will take a ton of hours to earn the free room, plus $1 or less an hour in long term growth to the roll.

    yet what can i do? i sure dont have enough to go into vegas and play poker, and find housing.

  5. Congrats on getting closer to your goal of being homeless again. At least that's what I think your goal is considering you always ignore the good advice people give you on both of your forums.

    People are constantly giving you good advice, but it seems like you don't read it, comprehend it and then apply it. All you do is complain how people are posting on the wrong board. You don't actually look at what the message is saying.

    1. "Congrats on getting closer to your goal of being homeless again." Sorry, Meister, but this is the comment of the month.

  6. It's easy to deflect blame upon your few remaining readers and say "flame away", but blowing another $1200 in one night, or almost half of your net worth, only hurts you.

    You have had 20+ 4 figure losing sessions on -EV gambling, and less than a handful of 4 figure winning sessions.


    You seriously need to go broke before the fact that you will never win long term on VBJ might register.

  7. "yet what can i do?" Get a job? You clearly don't have the fortitude to be a professional gambler; you have no control over your emotions - can't handle a loss, don't understand the law of averages, etc.

    Find a job cutting lawns or bussing tables since you believe you can't have a job that'll be taxed or on the books.

  8. Tony get out of there as soon as possible. It will break you. Even if these "experts" are right you don't have the discipline to follow the system. You've had many more 1000+ losses on machines than you've ever had in poker sessions. Pay some trucker to drop you in Vegas before its too late. You burnt thru a months rent and expenses in a few hours last night.

  9. Where are you anyway?

    I hardly think that the great secret getting out there, of a possible $1 an hr + EV BJ machine in the middle of the desert, will have people flocking there!

    Have you thrown in the towel on VBJ yet or are you intending to go back for more punishment.

    You asked here what to do and anyone with any reasonable suggestion said get a job....so what now?

  10. All of you people should offer TBC some more advice.

    TBC gets really good at building his roll when he gets down to the 2k mark. He's probably off to Vegas right now so he can grind out some more poker, build his roll up and blast it all off on a vbj machine again.

    TBC can't ignore the fact that when his roll was around 15k a few years ago, most of that was attributed to big vbj scores. He knows he can't do that playing poker so the temptation is too great.

    With all of that being said, I think the entertainment value of this blog would go up exponentially nearing BUSTO!! status.

    1. blurred, "temptation" is what Vegas rely's on.

  11. Any chance you can sell one buffet to a truck driver for maybe $10 or $15? Not sure if you could sell both since you might have to use one yourself and use the other for your "guest"???

  12. I bet you can get a lot of mashed potatoes at the buffet though!

  13. Tony, I've said it when you started this VBJ experiment and I will say it again.

    STOP THIS INSANITY!

    p.s. everyone should post over at the other forum, so much easier to converse.

  14. Professional poker player Scotty Nguyen came to Vegas broke and started as a dishwasher and played poker when he could. Look at his net worth now.

  15. Tony is the reverse Scotty Nguyen. He will start as a professional poker player and end up as a dishwasher.

  17. well, as of today ive been following the advice of never betting more than $9 (of course that amount slowly goes up as my roll goes up or slowly goes down too). ive earned enough comps for sun and mondays room, new checkout date of tuesday. wish i could just sit in my room and play on lock, but i need to deposit and cannot afford to, ive got only $4 on there and could use more.

    i didnt violate the advice once, and i ended up winning $4 when i went to eat my free buffet, and that pissed me off in a way, because at one point i was up over $60, but thats probably about the longterm expected EV. all the gain comes from the ROOMS, and is why the other big money players arent interested. But Jason thought it would be good for me since i need a place to live without cost. they do not want word get out because a guy with a HUGE roll of say $100,000 and up can average about $100-500 an hour in profit between counting and comps. so if word got out, and some rich guys came in and hit it up for a few hours, then they would remove the machine.

  18. they might not need rooms u see, but they could take thousands of dollars worth of FREE gas and FREE cigs etc.

  19. any day the $93 will be deducted from my bank account for this months phone bill charges, so i am really even more broke and im down to $4 on lock too-- could really use a transfer there.

  20. Your continued insistence on doing what you're doing is sad.

    You're down what, $4400 in the last 2-3 weeks?

  21. So when will you be back in Vegas and spending all of your time grinding the Bills game with the $20 min buy-in trying to rebuild to $3 or $4k ?
