Thanks to sickcallmggee and his taxi service, which cost me over $100 today. but the good news is im still over $2800, and i should never ever go broke on it, any experienced bankroll management person will tell u the chances are extremely remote of ever going broke if the highest bets u ever make are not more than 1/200th of the roll.
also, sickcallmggee has been posting on the old forum instead of posting here, he usually never posts here and always there instead. same way for about 3 or 4 others, never understand why that is. posting here more people see it.
i didnt want to stay in las vegas yesterday, since i was fully anticipating Romney to win, and was quite surprised he didnt. maybe too many dead people voted, we will never know the full story as to why he didnt win as expected. if it wasnt fraud, it must be the electorate is much more out in left field than it used to be. also the white % of the electorate only voted 38% for obama, but its a much smaller portion of the electorate every 4 yrs.
so instead i went to this VBJ machine i was told about in this little town between hawthorne and vegas. besides the VBJ machine they also have full pay 25c deuces wild machine paying 100.76% payback without adding comps or cashback. The professionals who told me about this place told me to absolutely not post the casino or town its located in, and said i should sometimes take a break from VBJ and play the VP instead, and that the bankroll needed to not go broke on the 25c machine with that payback would be $5000 or more. and that the royal is quite a bit of the payback longterm. which is why i prefer VBJ.
theres NO table poker around here, or transportation in and out of here, so i guess if i want to play poker ill just play online in my room. the professionals who make a good living playing +ev machines only told me that the machines i was playing in laughlin were NOT beatable without knowing the shuffle point, and they said they personally didnt have that info. they said the machine is ONLY beatable with a promo like 5x points or something and im starting to realize these 2-4 guys are definitely worth listening to.
now this VBJ machine, they said IS beatable by counting. But only because it shows u when it shuffles. it shuffles every 80 cards of 4 deck shoe. i was skeptical so i counted out the cards, and after 79 cards it dealt another hand, at the end of that hand it was 84 cards, and i knew something would be wrong if it didnt then shuffle, but sure enough it did shuffle. it shows the dealer actually picking up the cards and mixing them visually every 80 cards. holds up the game about 30 seconds. the min bet is $1 and the max is $500. so with my max bet of $15, i can get a better spread since i can spread $1 to $15 here instead of $2 to $15, and yes that will make a difference.
here is the big deal, considering the price this hotel charges for rooms, (for those getting comped instead of paying cash) im not going to go into too many details or people might figure out which casino its in, but for a theoretical loss part of the week of $4.20, i can get a free room, (using perfect basic strategy not counting)--of course thats improved if u do count-- and then on a weekend, the theoretical loss would be about $10.
so what im saying is i can basically live free here forever, and never ever have to worry as to how i can afford shelter. Nor can i ever go broke spreading $1-15 bets because any bankroll math BJ pro will tell u the chances of going bust following a 1/200th max bet rule is almost infinitesmal. i need discipline to follow those rules however. the discipline i NEVER had at binions on the beatable machine they had there with comps and the wheel spin.
what different now is i think ive developed that discipline. for the past 2 weeks in laughlin ive worked hard to develop that discipline, and i think i have finally got my max bet lowered to $16 (lets me double $8 unlike $15) i have stopped all the $20-40 bets i was making a few times in laughlin the other day. the discipline gets easier the more i work at it.
had i had that discipline at binions, instead of betting like 5 hands of up to $100 when i had a roll of only say $3500-6000, id have never ever destroyed my roll and blew up.
so i should listen to the people who know what they are talking about, and actually making money off +ev machines. not those who say it cant be done. and when they tell me NOT to play the machines ive been playing in laughlin and slotsoffun, i guess its time to listen to them. for they are far smarter than i am.
what makes this VBJ machine better than the 100.76 deuces wild machine is not only do i avoid the roller coaster ride of waiting for the royal, the comp rate is 10X better on the VBJ than on the VP, because this casino is treating the VBJ machine as a slot machine instead of a VP for the figuring of comps.
also something weird happened today while i was playing it. i asked 2 employees to watch it while i went to the bathroom and as i was coming back, i found about $25 of so more on the machine and i seen what looked like the end of the hand. THE ONLY solution was the employee accidently hit the button, not realizing i was in 3 spots at once. either the $10 bet button, and i got dealt BJ, (making me not have to act) or a $25 bet button, and it just stood me since this machine will do if u do not act within 20 seconds on ur hand as it counts u down.
i cannot understand why they didnt tell me, unless they either didnt notice or decided to not mention it since i won. i know one thing had i lost, id been calling gaming if they hadnt made it right. i knew the exact amount i left with, and it was $25 more in my balance when i got back. ive never had that happen before.
earlier today, i just watched the election results, and felt quite disappointed. Like a lot of friends of mine on facebook and twitter, i worry greatly about the future of this country especially when we are attacked by a foreign country or terrorist group, or when the debt crisis comes to a head and we are given 50% unemployment and mass inflation and panic.
i let it get to me too much, and i blew up on someone whose a flaming liberal on social issues, and i shouldnt have let it upset me so much. im talking about josies friend dugglebogey who i felt like has never accepted me in the past. i assumed he voted for obama, and i said a word i shouldnt ever say. later i found out he voted for gary johnson, which is about as bad, at least Ron Paul isnt the liberal on all social issues Gary is. Ron Paul is a Christian and is prolife.
the remark that offended me on dugglebogeys twitter said something deragotory about Akin, and akin was a guy i strongly supported to help the democrats lose the senate, and they shouldve lost that seat in MO too. so i was mad at him for denigrating akin, so i then said something deratogay back to him. i cannot understand why people let akins remarks into such a big deal. all politicians at times say the wrong thing, its his RECORD of being a conservative that matters, not some insensitive comment he made.
i let liberals get me worked up because when they are attacking akin, how do i explain this? i feel like they are not attacking akins beliefs but are attacking my mom, my son, and me and our religious beliefs and heritage, simply beccause all 3 of us, (and todd akin) all think alike. so i felt like he went after me before i went off on him.
that being said i should just keep my mouth shut. ive got to learn to be calmer and not get so worked up over things. i just got tired of seeing all the anti-replublican conservative twitter remarks. anyway im over it now, and apologize if he is able to accept my apology. i hope non Christans are able to forgive just like christians do.
this is one of my longest ever blogs and with that i must go to bed. i hope i am doing the right thing by listening to the people who are most succesful at +ev games, and have the bankrolls to prove it. and also, sickcallmggee had his wife wash my laundry one more time for $20 before we left. and i used my comps to take us to eat in the LVH when we went by picking up free play while passing thru vegas. also i got my mail and a lot of junk and important mails.
