First off reading this guys blog makes me feel guilty.
http://mattchaney88.blogspot.com/2010/06/does-your-lifestyle-help-or-hurt-your.html?spref=fb. this is matt chaney on my facebook, who plays poker for a living somewhere in TX. also i think he deals in home games.
nice to be home now, paid my room up til saturday. back out of vegas, and on the way back Johnny and i stopped in to play poker at a couple of places, but only ending up playing in one casino, where i won $43 playing $2-4 limit. then we stopped at food4less and got a ton of ramon noodle cups of soup for 33c each, about 1 6th of what the casino gift shop charges, so now i wont feel hungry in my room anymore.
and ive still got most of the wynn food comps, $127 worth. and ive got about $110 worth of comps at circus. the wynn comps are going to be tough to use since they cant be used on rooms.
waiting to hear from seattle irish later today, should be getting another $105 soon as i can sell him my allegiant voucher. also my roll is at $1600, better than it was when i went to vegas, so im relieved. i am down to $18 on Lock though, so i might need to put money back on there, i hate that.
Started off my trip to vegas feeding poker Johnny in the buffet here before we went to vegas, and then today i fed him again in the buffet at circus before we left town. I paid him to do my laundry for me, and i am so glad to have that done and out of the way. too bad next month he will be out on the east coast unable to assist. Lost over $50 at sams town the first day i came back playing $1-5 stud, the game now goes a little earlier at 7am every morning.
was disappointed the riv didnt get the $2-6 spread limit sunday morning, and only the $1-3 NL game where i quickly lost $46 and left pissed that i ever played it. Lightning showed up, and we walked to where his car was parked over by harrahs, and met his brother on the way. then spent the day at the suncoast, where someone had told me about a good $2-6 spread limit 08 game they said i should easily win $100 or more in. Early on, the game was quite tight, but really loosened up after about 3 hours. Pots started to get big, and i won $172. (yes i know thats way more than i can expect over the long run) but im still glad i was told to go play there. wish i had a place to live near there. was so glad lightning had use a car so we could go over there. Also i had no working cell phone most of that afternoon, and also all of the first day i was in vegas, otherwise lightning and i couldve hung out more often, and hung out sooner.
checked out the new BCP site on that other network, but of course i have no money on BCP. looks like far less sngs available. i wish id not had bad luck everytime i play a $25 sng on lock. last night i played a $25 sng again after losing 3 $5 sngs in a row, thats how my roll on lock dropped.
also i couldve got a free room saturday night at the orleans i found out when i got my mail, also i turned in the key and my box is officially closed now. the free days i had in dec at orleans was 1 day only between dec 1 and dec 6. so i couldve stayed in vegas one more day, but to be at the orleans only 1 day, was too much hassle, also i mightve been charged a resort fee. what id really liked is free days either at suncoast, texas station or sams town. also lightning hasnt seen my blog since hes been in vegas.
so i guess a good longterm solution to my bankroll problems would be to live within one bus of the suncoast, and to be able to play in the $2-6 spread limit omaha8 game as often as possible. (they only play 4 days a week, the other 3 days its hilow stud). but i just cannot believe i would average anything near that big a win every day. Even lightning won in that game as bad as all the players were. surely i could win at least $2000 a month longterm in it? Id just have to be sure i never pissed anyone off that would be the hard part. am a little disappointed i come all the way to vegas for a vacation, offer to take others out to eat, and neither grump, Rob, or grouchie come hang out. only Johnny and lightning. none of whom were glad to see me come to vegas to visit.
yeah i need to find me cheap housing in vegas longterm soon as my roll gets back to over $2500. was hoping i can do that by the end of the year, but ill need to start doing better online. not sure why the bigger sngs lose. the players arent any better. Maybe there are teams working the $25.
