YEAH IM WORRIED

have done some online google searches, different ones this time, and i remembered to use the quotation marks, but still the searches arent what i want. a lot of the "$300 monthly" or $75 weekly rent" were NOT for places to live. even did searches for attics and garages, but even then the garage ones only turned out to be for parking cars, not to live in.

a basement would only work if it had its own private entrance and i didnt have to have any contact with anyone else living in the house, same way for an attic. it seems very few do, or at least if they do, they dont mention this in their craigslist ads. i remember too the time Britni did nationwide searches for me listing a bunch of cheap monthly place to live, in weird locations such as small places in Idaho etc. The problem with those type of searches is u have no idea of the ethnic background of all the other neighbors as to whether u would be comfortable living there or not.

i doubt if they still do, but 22 years ago the homeless shelter i stayed at a few times in Lima OH used to have a small building next to the shelter with a very small number of private rooms, that they rented out for $50 a month only to help homeless people get back on their feet, that u was only allowed to live at for 2 months while u looked for other alternatives.

often they were full, and they didnt rent to everyone. But it would be nice if the salvation army or other homeless programs in vegas had something like that. i wouldnt want to have to come to the shelter to sleep their hours (totally different than mine) and be surrounded by unsafe people who might steal my laptop from underneath me as i slept. Lots of old rooming houses in old HOTELS, not motels, got burned or torn down in the last 10 years too i lived at, can think of at least 3. i know most homeless people are always totally broke, because they manage their money much less well and continually spend themselves down to $0, mostly cause of alcoholism. also shelters dont allow u to stay there longterm, some of them only a few days. Usually they make u take a shower around other people where others can steal from u during the shower, a big no-no scaring me away. and dont just say "dont carry any money". if my debit card or ID got stolen that too is a huge and even bigger problem.

but yeah im worried, im not sure i wont go broke here, ive been told even that im now following the correct bankroll management, my risk of ruin is pretty high. especially since my counting system wasnt "advanced" enough, and was more basic and not the best for 4 decks. if i did side count the aces, how would i decide how that would change my betting strategy? i keep having many small wins of $10-30 and then some big $150-200 losses. and all my play last night over 3 sessions only got me about half of sundays comp room ive still not earned. im betting so low it would take about 12 hours play to earn my room anymore. and its rapidly approaching sunday. So i worry about this being a viable option in the future. Also i have very little money left on lock too. am back to playing $2 sngs again instead of $5, too bad i lost the $15 one. i made a total of $67 last night, but am still not even back to $1200. and my internet will be coming out of my bank in the next 2 days. Also please dont ask me to play them on lock without telling me ur screen name and just asking for mine. i like to know if u are at my table, i need ur screen name first. tired of this on twitter.

that being said, since i used the right bankroll management, (but maybe not the right counting system) my roll has been somewhere in the $1100s $1200s or $1300s. it hasnt moved up or down much, although it had 2 big $150+ losses, and many very tiny wins. u see when i have a small win, i want to get up and quit for the day and go back to my room. and when im losing, i want to sit there all night and try and wipe out the loss.

i think i could do well at poker if i just had a cheap enough place to live so i could totally play online at home, or if i was around a $1-5 stud game daily such as being near foxwoods or tampa because thats a game that takes a much much smaller roll than $1-2 NL as far as grinding out $1200 or so a month. does anyone else think $1100 will get me anywhere in a low stakes poker game in vegas, i mean would u come to vegas with this little, if u didnt have a place to live lined up or friends who would take u in? the reason most people dont worry when they get in my situation is they have friends they can stay with. i dont. the only men whove ever offered to let me live with them were guys i didnt know, so i declined.

i remember in 1989 i was panhandling in fort wayne IN, and a christian man and his wife let me stay in a spare room in their house for the night. im sure they only did it because i was so young then, most people would be afraid, and nothing bad happened to me. I cannot understand why Britni always said to find roommates online, she has often lived with roommates, but im just not into that. if i knew how to fight and defend myself i wouldnt mind living with others as much cause i wouldnt be so afraid. everywhere i ever lived, i had my own room that entered into a hallway in a large building not someones house. what i mean is i never had to hang out around other tenants, like u would in a room in someones home. i worry about who someone will invite over to visit and i worry people will use drugs, drink, smoke weed and all sorts of things.

  1. So you want an apartment for $300/month, utilities included, in a white neighborhood, near a casino with VBJ.

    You might as well require that it have herds of majestic unicorns grazing in the backyard. It certainly wouldn't reduce the number of units meeting your criteria.

  2. Tony you should really consider going back home to Kansas. Tony for once listen "NO MACHINE IS BEATABLE IN THE LONG RUN SYSTEM OR NO SYSTEM". In all honesty no game in a casino is beatable in the long run, anyone can beat a machine on any given day but week to week or month to month it cannot be done. The only possible way to beat a machine is to hit the Megabucks and quit playing after that, there is no other way.

    1. Well, nothing in this post is true. I'm not sure that lying to Tony is going to do anything useful. It's common for lifetime losers at gambling to take the stance of "well, if I can't beat the casino, then clearly nobody else can, since I'm the smartest gambler who ever lived."

      If you changed your assertion to "Tony isn't capable of beating a machine in the long run, due to his inability to analyze the game and construct a method of play and betting that produce a +EV result ... nor does he have the discipline to follow such a method of play and betting even were he able to correctly analyze the game" then I would agree with you 100%.

    2. one reason i dont believe people who say to stop playing the machine is because they claim no machines are beatable and i know thats not true. therefore, it follows whatever they say must also not be true is my logic

    3. Tony says..."one reason i dont believe people who say to stop playing the machine is because they claim no machines are beatable and i know thats not true. therefore, it follows whatever they say must also not be true is my logic"

      Following that logic, you have said lots of things that are not true. Therefore, nothing you say now or in the future will be true, that is your logic.

    4. Tony, some machines are beatable, under certain circumstances (like 5x cashback promo, for example), and it requires proper strategy and betting system.

      You have neither the discipline, knowledge, or bankroll to achieve this goal. You have failed to beat the machines for 20+ years, what makes you think you can do it now. The machines have gotten harder to beat over the years, what you have done to increase your edge faster than the casinos increasing theirs?

      Delete
    5. Pokerdogg there is no machines that are beatable promo or no promo. There is no way to play $150 dollars thru any machine and get 1 free night in comps. I can probably get at least 2 nights paying with the $150 instead of feeding it thru a machine

      Delete
    6. Zin, that is clearly not true. There are machines that return >100% when you factor in the comps, like the ones Tony played on last year with the 5x cash back promo. However, I don't think they are there anymore.

      That is to say, there may be some machines that are still beatable, but certainly not the way Tony plays them.

      Delete
    7. By the way, of course there is no way to play $150 thru a machine and get 1 free night in comps. You have to put thousands of coin in to get that.

      Delete
    8. right now, $1200 coin in is a free night, $3000 coin in a free night on saturdays. the theoretical loss on that is $3.70 and $9 meaning i should get rooms forever before id run out of money thats why im afraid to leave, cant afford them otherwise

      also theres a 100.76 payback deuces wild machine with the 5-1 on 4 of a kind, but its way more variance than VBJ. but its over 100% not even using ur card about 10 feet away

      Delete
    9. Pokerdogg, i understand there are machines on the floor when you throw comps in the pool the expected return is 100%+ in the long run...if one is gambling for comps he is losing already...the risks are not worth the reward.

  3. its ok if its $400 a month as long as its $100 weekly, nothing extra upfront to move in, no casino needs to be nearby as long as i can just sit there and grind poker online from home either. im sure a lot of young kids grinding online poker are living in places that cheap, but the problem is they are rooms in others homes. what i need is my own private seperate entrance.

    Britni in the past before she died or whatever told me to look for opportunities to house sit others homes, but i dont think they exist

    1. Tony, what evidence do you have that you are a winning online poker player, period? What evidence do you have that you're capable of winning $400/month to cover living expenses? How about food? How about internet?

      You don't mass multitable. You don't use a HUD. You don't study the game. You never seem to improve. Why do you think your earn rate is >$0/month online?

      Delete
    2. You will not find anything that cheap with your own room and no upfront costs. But why don't you try one of these, seems like they are only $159/week. You get your own room and utilities are provided. That seems really cheap, to me.

    3. $159 isnt anywhere close to being affordable. thats well over $650 a month. thats why i left the room i had $189 a week, i paid extra to feel safe and be close to the office, the vast majority of tenants paid $149 a week and lived in the back. u must live in a place like cali, or the east coast where housing is HIGH.

    4. of course i know i can beat online poker, even sickcallmggee swears to this, and he keeps saying hangin there til january. i used to give away about $300 or more a month to women when i had my own housing and solely grinded online proving i beat the game but not for alot. back then i had no bankroll and wasnt familiar with online. but not multitabling will actually help u make better decisions. i study the game every time im reading or posting a HH

    5. Um, do you even know how the real world functions? $650/month for rent + utilities is extremely cheap, considering they don't require a deposit or do a background check, or any of that other stuff. You will not find anything cheaper. Not gonna happen.

      People that rent out property do it as a BUSINESS, not a charity. They do it to make money. Poor people often do not pay and damage property, thus they get charged more.

      The cheapest way to get housing is to BUY, not rent. Though you need to have a steady job and a good credit history to get a mortgage.

      So, of course you are going to have to pay more when you rent. I just did a quick check of a real estate website and you can get a decent sized condo in the Vegas area for $80,000 or less right now. With interest rates as low as they are, it is a great time to buy in Vegas.

      Tony, you have to realize that you are a huge risk for anyone to rent to. So you are going to have to pay more than you should. If you don't like those cold, hard facts then CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Quit wishing on your blog for things to change for you. Change things for yourself. Do something different with your life.

      What you are doing right now is NOT WORKING. It will not start working either. do you think a woman is going to want to go out with a man who sleeps in a rundown hotel? Or to be with someone who sits in front of a VBJ machine for 10 hours a day and then plays $2 DON tourneys online? No woman is going to be that desperate to do that.

    6. How does how you did at online poker 4 years ago have any relevance to how much you can earn today playing online? The game has changed radically. It's much, much harder to win online now than it was 4 years ago.

      I stand by my statement, there is zero evidence that you can do anything but breakeven in today's online poker environment.

      Tony, you know that online poker that gotten a lot tougher in the past 5-6 years, right? What has your results been in the past 12 months online? What is your winrate/100 hands in cash games? What is your ROI on the DON tournys you are so fond of playing?

      Delete
    8. "of course i know i can beat online poker, even sickcallmggee swears to this, and he keeps saying hangin there til january."

      What do you think is going to happen in January?

      If the answer is Nevada-licensed poker sites coming online, I think you're being HUGELY optimistic. I'd bet you $100 none of them will be operational by the end of January. Late 2012--i.e., about a year from now--seems like the earliest plausible date, and who knows if they'll even make that?

      Furthermore, as I've told you a couple of times before, my understanding is that you're not only going to have to physically be in Nevada, but you're going to have to be able to prove Nevada residency in order to set up an account. For your own idiosyncratic reasons, you flew out to Louisiana to get a new state ID there, rather than get a Nevada ID. Then you gave up your apartment, which would have at least allowed you to show a permanent Nevada address. My guess is that unless you change these things, you're not going to be able to set up accounts no matter when they get rolling.

  5. Tony, there are certain realities that you do not seem to face. You have champagne expectations with a beer budget. Housing costs are not what they were several years ago, as many have pointed out. You have many standards and expectations for what you want your housing to be, but do not have the money to afford it. The fact is that people with little money do not get to dictate what kind of housing they are in. You will either have to compromise or else get ready to live on the streets.

    Same thing with VBJ. You think you are somehow going to find a way to beat the system, but that is just a fantasy that you are willing to belive, especially from almost any huckster with an entertaining story. You should be smart enough to know that you will never beat the machines in the long run.

    Unfortunately, you had the possibility of making things work in Las Vegas when you had over $6000. Many people here advised you to use some of the money to pay a few months rent, but you instead chose to gamble it away. You have gotten 86ed from most of the poker rooms where you should have been able to grind out a living by winning money from drunks, visitors and recreational and poor players.

    You now have few choices in front of you. I hope you will start making some better decisions for yourself -- things that go beyond just making it day to day or week to week.

  6. Tony: I'll ask four direct, easy to understand, questions. Each requires a one word response. You can also respond: "I don't want to answer." But, for once and for all, let's get to the bottom of this . . .

    Here they are:

    First, have you discussed with your mom moving back in with her?

    Second, if you have discussed the issue with her, will your mom allow you to move in with her if you pay "rent"?

    Third, if so, have you and your mom discussed the amount of rent she'd charge?

    Finally, if so, how much rent will she charge?

    1. i sent a tweet to virgintimtebow because he follows me, and i was replying to something he said originally, forget what, but place like that who "assist the homeless" instead of just warehousing them, they should help get them into cheap rooms on their own to be independent by having leads to landlords, the vast majority of homelessness could be eliminated if a lot of these cheap rooming houses i used to stay at wouldnt all got torn down to build more expensive housing or burned down. landlords would rather their places stay empty than worrying about people moving in then not being able to pay. which hurts both them and the people who need a place to live. the best way to solve the issue is to speed up the amount of time an eviction takes, if its faster landlords wont worry about it as much

    2. Tony, you seem to struggle with making the connection between dirt cheap housing with no upfront moving costs and weekly payments and the people they attract and how safe you feel in them. You should read a sociology text or two on iTunes u because you really don't seem to get why those places exist, and who lives in them. You're never in a million years going to find one full of beautiful single women and accountants.

    4. Tony, what you fail to realize is you feel that you're in a position to make demands in regards to living arrangements and income opportunities.

      The reality is that your gambling addiction and lack of self control it provides you with has placed you in the situation you're in.

      Throw in your disability, and you're just a ticking time bomb. Anything that can get you out of a casino at this point is progress.


      The person you are and the actions you take will not lead you to any charity from others though. I know personally that I have a house with multiple empty bedrooms in a nice neighborhood walking distance to a casino, and I never in a million years would let you stay here for any amount of money. It's simply not worth the headache.

    3. You do realize that VBJ is a slot machine with a predetermined payback right? And most people aren't at a casino with the goal of playing for 12 hours at a time in order to get enough comp dollars to not be homeless for another night?

    5. It certainly is not something Tony Bogcharles can make money at as well.

He has repeatedly talked about how these machines have cost him money forever, and if he could only learn to stop playing them...Now all of a sudden he can count them and play them professionally....

  11. Tony - there is a serious problem with the fact that your train is derailing but you're still going on about how to beat the VBJ... that your system was to simple or you didn't count Aces or your risk of ruin is high... Why not take a time out and evaluate your life? Instead of trying to beat a publicly traded company who is in business to make money off these "beatable" VBJ machines, stop what you're doing, and try to find a job.

    Also, why are you so scared about having roommates? Do you honestly think that they're going to rob your $1000? The potential robbery sounds like more trouble than it's worth!

    You will have to find transportation to get to and from the strip.
    You are walking distance to Sam's Town, Boulder Station and the ever amazing Arizona Charlies

    1. that would be the spot with the quad setup where 4 bedrooms share a bath and also a kitchen area. Unless Tony keeps a cooler in his room or a mini-fridge this place won't work. OTOH it is a very short walk to Sam's club and a free shuttle to a strip property that I do not remember off hand and also Fremont Street. Just a little further down the road is a walmart. Where heaven forbid I think Tony could get a job gathering up the carts in the parking lot....

    2. id much rather be in reno right now, but the LAST thing i want to do is waste more money just to travel somewhere. why would i rather be in reno? well i can play $1-5 stud daily from 8am to 5-6pm and thats a game that fits my bankroll. also the min buyin in $1-2 NL is $30 there. plus i know of 2 very cheap places for $399 a month or $125 a week with a fridge downtown as of a year ago. being in reno too would keep me from playing any VBJ at all. not only do i not have money to travel, its not a good time to go to a cold climate unless i can be sure i dont end up broke, which scares me a great deal from going to ks too. if it were warm, id get a tent and live outside foxwoods or tampa hardrock and play $1-5 stud til i hit $3000 with 2 months or less. and yeah the place above id be too afraid to go to the kitchen or bathroom unless i met and trusted the other tenants.

    2. Why should he? He has suckers all around to do his bidding and give him money when he needs it. He has played everyone for a sucker his entire life, going 40+ years without putting in a days work in his life, but people bending over backwards to give him handouts.

      I mean, he got an insta 18K bankroll (plus a monthly 600 for a long while) and keeps turning it into 1200.

    3. pokerdogg, these 2 guys are examples of trolls. especially the one above him, never says anything except to criticize, i never got anywhere close to 18k from ssi, mightve got close to half that but no more than about $4000 in one lump sum. and to still have $1200 is doing exceptionally well, most wouldve spent it all on living expenses. also no one ever gives me money except on rare occasions also ive talked in here many times about the times i panhandled holding up a sign, people drove by offering jobs, and the different times ive done the work they offered. the 2 days at the furniture store in wichita, the week at the warehouse in memphis, and the work at the old ladys house in IL. also i got ripped off once too in OH, the guy didnt pay me so i wasnt comfortable since

  14. You make it sound like you coud easily grind out a living online or playing $1-5 stud. Is this really the case? I´ve been following you for a while and always had the impression you were a losing online player. I am not sure you have what it takes or even have any idea how to make it in this sphere.

    You did seem to be able to survive playing live in vegas so why did you leave all that for VBJ?

    You need some time off gambling to break out of this dream world you are living in. You need to regroup financialy and mentally and that means a job. I fear for you if you do not make some changes and do something positive to turn this around.

    Your blogs have been boring for a while now but you also sound totally deluded keeping on about VBJ systems, and playing for peanuts on Lock Poker. OOOH my balance went from $8 to $12 on lock thank god. What the hell does that matter to anyone least of all you in your situation?

    You have to face up to reality or this cycle of worry and misery will continue to get worse.

    1. well i used to win in the old days at $1-5 stud, but very little, about $1000 or so a month, was why i was so broke all the time. what it does show is that ive made $4 last a long time without going broke on lock, so if it wouldve been $100 on there id have a shot to make it work

      Delete
    2. So you made $4 last a long time therefore if you had $100 you could grind out a living.

      I am sorry to be critical as i have nothing against you personally but do you realise how insane that sounds?

  15. Tony if you don't need a casino. I have a 2 bedroom in Edmonson, TX. that I will let you stay free for 3 months to help you get on your feet. all you would have to pay is electric and water. I have wifi so your Internet is covered. Electric and water is about 150.00 a month. If your interested I will send you pictures. The house is an older home my wife's grandparents lived in, it is right behind my home.
    Ps I live in a rural community.

    1. i looked up edmonson on wikipedia, seems its a town of 123? nearest city is plainview and there is a walmart there, no idea where id get food in edmonson. but thats about 20 miles away or so. it listed it in kilometers so i couldnt figure it out. probably the closest i could get on a bus is amarillo. as has been stated many times, i cannot turn on wireless on my computer so if my verizon card didnt work there id be screwed. also i cant stop paying im in a 2 year contract even if im living where theres no service. wheres the closest place u drive to when u play in a poker game? probably at least 100 miles or so unless its a private game in a bar.

      would love the 3 months time, im just worried about where id buy anything like food etc, since the walmart so far away, id still have bills, my $180 a month phone and net, plus the extra $150 utilities. biggest concern is bringing in enough income to cover that, id need to make sure id have some way to have money coming in. i dont have enough online to work with, and id need to add more, if the site or transfers shut down id be screwed, and then theres the cost getting to amarillo or whatever is closer. then id need a ride to edmonson. last thing i want to do is start out spending money, but i appreciate the offer. it might work if i can find a large enough size stake offer to give me enough on lock or some other site id feel comfortable i wouldnt go broke on, i will see if allegiant gets me anywhere close to u but i highly doubt it. at least if so that would eliminate the cost of getting there. im concerned about being stuck out there, ending up broke, with no way to leave, obtain food, or earn any money. if i was at least $1000 better off i could probably make it there without going broke. but then without the desperation id probably not be as inclined to be away from a casino. now if i could be assured id have a way to earn money there, and make at least $300 or so a week online, this would be a great idea. but to make that id need to play at least $10 sngs or higher and have a better sharkscope like i have back on blackchip instead of my poorer one on lock. pokerdogg should look at my old BCP one, same name aa23eachhand

    2. Tony if you get to Lubbock or Amarillo my wife and I will make sure you to Edmonson. And I am sure my wife would give you a ride to Walmart any time you needed to. She is also a very good cook, we cook out almost every weekend. I play in several bar games and several private cash games here. PM me at AVP clint0721 if you ever need the house.

    2. Maybe people are wasting their time, as we all know very little of the sage advice given to Tony will ever be heeded. However, there is something to be said for people who, out of the goodness of their hearts, are trying to help this struggling guy make it to the next year.

      It is certainly no secret that Tony is autistic, addicted to gambling, and has ideas that venture far from the norm. However, he is still someone who needs help. The frustrating part is that Tony lives in his own unique world where the usual conventions in life do not seem to apply. That doesn't, in my mind, make him less worthy of assistance from people who have the desire to help.

      I have personally met several of the people who post on Tony's board and can verify that they are good people with big hearts. It is evident that many others who post here are the same. And regardless of the results, I do not think that giving of one's self to assist the struggling, whatever their circumstances might be, is ever a waste of time.

  19. PokerDOGGGGGGGG-you're predictable and boring. It's REALLY pathetic that you people can't bring any humor to the situation of the life of TBC.
    Have you guys EVER heard Tony laugh or seen him laugh at ANYTHING? Don't you find that rather ODD? He lives a serious, dark and depressing life with little to laugh about. Way to be a part of it!!!! Perhaps if he learned to laugh at himself a little, he wouldn't be such a fearful racist.

    Lightening- of course there are lots of good-hearted people on Tonys blog that want to help him. Problem is, he only wants handouts, not brutal honesty or the "right path".

    This blog could be funny and entertaining, but instead it's the same idiots giving the same advice over and over and over mixed with a few updates from Tony about his recent $13 score and how he doesn't feel safe around brown people.

    Tony-would you do a blog post reminiscing about the days when your roll was around 15k? If you had that 15k now, what would you do differently?

    2. How many resumes and applications have you filled out since Obama was elected?

      Also, it would probably serve you well to do some googling on US unemployment rate and presidential powers. I think your dislike of black people is clouding your judgement as to just how much legitimate effect Romney could have on such large issues.

    This blog can only grow readers and commentors if TBC allows all voices critical, severely critical and very supportive. Obviously unending haters with no reasonable arguments and people threatening Tony should be banished.

  25. You do know that the third time you appeal SSI they have to appoint a lawyer for you and approval rates approach 99%. (for third appeals) And they pay all the back payment you would have beeen owed. You owe absoltuley zero to lawyer.

    Does take work and perseverance. Expect much, much run around. But apparently third time is a charm.

    When I found out that SSI is required to pay a lawyer FOR you I was floored.

    ReplyDelete

    1. am sure approval isnt anywhere close to 99%

      Delete
    2. Approval is not 99%. And it takes about a year, and the Social Security is not required to pay for a lawyer for you. Lawyers who specialize in SSI will take your case on a contingency basis, they will get part of the back pay if you win. On the first appeal it is handled by a panel from SSA and on the second appeal it goes before a single judge who makes the decision and they take everything in consideration including any skills that you have. Social Security just hired a lot of new judges due to high case volume and they are not as eager to approve the request since so many people are now on disability. And you don't get to pick which judge you get. On the first appeal you don't have to do any thing however you only have a certain amount of time to appeal before you would have to start over and then you would get a new start date. Don't let that time frame pass if you want to appeal. If after you appeal and denied again, then your appeal would go before a judge and you would have to appear before the judge and again there is a deadline on appealing that level also. If you are going to appeal you need to go ahead and do it.

  26. tony -> per our email conversation about hyper turbos... In summary I do think you have the math skills to do well at hypers as there are few reads, few post flop plays and lots of mathetical preflop analysis on the fly.

    problem is I don't think you ever could handle the variance. It is worse than anything you can ever imagine. I haven't blogged much lately but I quickly put up a blog post to show you my small sample of Lock hypers this month.

    http://vookenmeister.blogspot.com/2012/11/hypers-enough-variance-to-kill-man.html

    Keep in mind that I played these while playing DoNs on Merge at same time. The goood thing about hypers is that you can play tons of them (and multitable them). the bad news is you have to endure bad luck (or good luck) every minute.

    I think these would make you explode into a rage of fury trying to win your money back (martingaling).

    You should play DoNs which are low variance and you need to multitable them to make any money. If you played one $15 DoN at a time and had a reasonable win rate of 4-6% ROI you'd only make about $1 an hour with rakeback.

    Online success should not be measured in ROI. Online success should be measured in $$ per hour. That's why I play 20-25 tables at a time (of course doing that and losing can easily be a punch in the nuts).

    Good luck!

    PS. I hate this blog format. Most of my iphone posts disappear if i click the wrong button. it's painful
