good news for a change

Is everyone tired of reading nothing but bad news all the time? well ive got some good news for a change. Since i wont be needing that allegiant voucher to go to CO or deadwood after all, i put it up for sale on 2+2 and managed to find a buyer willing to give me the whole $144 (on lock poker, which is worth like 75% of that). ive already received his money, sent vook $100 of it, and gave him the code. i pray it all works out ok for him, am afraid he might try to claim the code didnt work when really it does just to try and get this for free. (or to get me to send the money back since he already now knows the code). but maybe all will go okay. what should i do if he tries and say the code dont work?

and with that, im now in the $1400s. thats not much, but at least things have been pretty stable over the last month, (as far as holding onto what little i had left and keeping steady housing) and ive still got $96 left on lock to work with too. and also ive got a nice jacket now thanks to tatude. Also grump did me a very nice thing today, he sent me a xmas ecard. My mom also said my son received his xmas gift from me today, (the movie we picked out on amazon.com). no one else got any gifts.

----update---

well i got tied up in the middle of writing this blog post a couple hours ago and had to wait til now to finish it. the guy was having a problem with the voucher, so i had to call allegiant (was on hold forever) and get it transferred into his name. it finally got solved, he now has his flight booked, and of course i have the money. so now ill definitely be staying in the area. although of course some days i couldve flown as low as $55 without the voucher.

  1. Tony looses $400 yesterday, but sells a plane ticket for $100 and its suddenly good news. The tides are turning now. I really thought he was going to say he got a job or started playing live poker.

  2. Tony, it is almost the end of the year, perhaps it is time to take a look back and do some reflection. This is part of your post from November 7th, a little over 6 weeks ago...

    Tony says..."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."

    And then 2 months ago, you moved out of your place by Hard Rock...

    "anyway ive been having a lot of poker losses lately besides the big machine loss the other day on 2 different occasions. my roll is barely over $4000, and ive had several losing sessions of up to $300 or so just at poker lately in more than one casino, im out more than $300 just since leaving my apt friday morning. i am not even sure if i am playing my best lately."

    10 months ago you decided you knew better than the counsellor, after 2 whole sessions...

    Feb 26, 2012..."seeing a counselor did nothing to stop me from getting so terribly angry when my moneys disappearing. she asked me to write my feelings down in a notebook but its a pain in the butt to carry one with me everywhere i go, or to type on a cell phone even more so. i just didnt find her advice all that useful, and i felt like i knew better than her anyway."

    And then one year ago you had this thought...

    Dec 22, 2011..."$600 a month isnt too bad, i was happiest when i had my apt in reno and couldve just stayed home. i only gave it up because i rented a place way too expensive and didnt really want to stay in reno."

    Tony, it may be really useful to read over all your posts from the last couple of years, and see how your BR goes up/down, what are the mistakes you made and how you repeat them. What made you happy, sad, stressed, etc. Until you have learned from the past, you will not change in the future.

    1. alot of what i posted is true, i wouldnt ever go broke betting 1/200th of the roll, maybe not even with 1/100th, am sticking with that mostly as my max bets. i dont think im repeating a lot of the mistakes of last year. (one thing ive played ZERO video poker in the last month or so). used to play that besides VBJ. I've talked to lightning, (himself a counselor) about why i havent seen the counselor anymore, i feel her advice (of writing down my feelings) is what drove everyone away from me. (she didnt tell me to show others the writings, but once they are written down its tempting to do so). moving out of the place by the hardrock was a horrible idea, but at the time i didnt realize the VBJ different type in laughlin wasnt worth playing, now i see the difference is quite substantial between that machine and the one i play now. i still would like to know if these dealers angels VBJ machines exist in other parts of the country, for ive only seen it in Jean and Circus, and the only other place i know they exist ive not been is the monte carlo. anywhere else in NV or any other state i would like to know about so i could find out if the comps are any better, or if there are special point days. i dont want to go to deadwood if the 4 machines different casinos have there are the laughlin shufflemaster type instead of the dealers angels type which they probably are, because the game isnt nearly as good.

  4. vook still is in bed i think, not heard from him yet for the $100 i sent him last night, went out to the VBJ won $49, then went and ate, and then went back to my room about 90 minutes ago, and i should be trying to sleep. I've still got about $100 on lock but once i get paid ill be in the $1500s. somehow i always manage to survive and not go bust, i am not sure why. I dont have enough money to do anything really with my life, but i avoid going totally broke.

    notice how dablackpimp is no longer posting about my losses on lock, seems everyday im transferring money to vook. My wins have been in the PLO games, those games seem to be much weaker than the other games. not in the hilow but in the high only. any ideas why those games are weaker than other games? certainly better action than holdem.

    also are there any LIVE low stakes 50c blind games for PLO anywhere in the country, (not counting the games in someones home). i did hear about a charity casino in east willoughby outside cleveland advertising in bluff magazine offering 25c50c live games, but its too cold to go there right now. i was thinking cali, AZ or FL

    1. You seem to be doing a bit better on-line recently, I am surprised but well done.
      However it is hard to follow with all the back and forth though the Vook clearing house system the two of you got going.
      What is the summary of your online play recently, games played, net cash games win/loss, ROI etc

    2. I didn realize u sent me $100. Lock doesn't send emails and I don't check my balance often (because I don't track how I'm doing hourly or daily like you. I look at my win/loss on a monthly basis)

      Anyways I sent you $75 BoA

      Ps. I've said before Omaha is the best online game for you as long as you don't play too high. However it's high variance so be careful

      Good luck. Of course

    3. Oh and for those wondering why tony is selling 75% it is because lock has withdraw issues and this lock is selling on the 2+2 market for .70-.75. I'm allowing tony to sell to me at the high end of that. When tony buys I'm now doing it at 5% over market price. I was just letting him buy an sell at 85% but with all his transactions back and forth it eats up small amounts of my free time. Pls if he's winnin I'm losing as I can usually buy these funds at low end of marts since I'm a known respected trader. Lock shutdown western union 2-3 weeks ago so right now u can only get funds off by check which are taking 6-8 weeks

  5. this article for online PLO games was written sometime ago and is basically shilling pokerstars, but is it still true?




    PLO $10 (5c / 10c blinds): Loose and passive, expect to see 60% + to each flop and generally unraised pots. Errors are huge and include drawing to low straights and non-nut flushes and even stacking off with an over-pair. The huge number of mistakes mean you really do not need to force the action at this level, raise your good hands for value and wait for your opponents to give you their stacks.

    PLO $25 (10c / 25c blinds): Even at this level you will start to find one or two multi-table grinders. Again the pre-flop action is loose-passive, with many multi-way pots. While you will find nut-peddlers, most of the mistakes still revolve around chasing weak draws and hands. Once again these games can be beaten playing straight forward poker, raising for value and bluffing infrequently.

    PLO $50 (25c / 50c blinds): This is the level where you will find a lot of the Texas Holdem players who are trying out Omaha for a bit of variation – along with an increasing number of low-stakes multi-tabling grinders. Here the game starts to become more aggressive pre-flop. While there are less ‘chasing non-nuts’ errors, hands are still overvalued, especially top two / small sets. Key opponent errors here include not realizing that combo draws are big favorites (leads to folding when holding significant equity and also overplaying vulnerable made hands).

    PLO $100 (50c / $1 blinds): Grinders love this level, you will often find a table full of apparently tight / passive players who suddenly spring to life once every 20 hands with huge bets. Less errors at this level, and often more aggression in general – especially from position. You will start to see the profit coming from 2 or three weak players, the ‘aces-only raiser’ being a goldmine here. Isolating the fish with position, ideally with a deep stack – is often a profitable strategy… just make sure that opponents acting after you do not take the play away from you too often!

    PLO200 ($1 / $2 blinds) At this level the majority of your opponents will be reasonable players, big bets will go into the pot earlier and less of the players will make the ‘huge’ errors such as overplaying aces or stacking off with a weak straight. Aggression and balance are both essential here, pots often being 3 or 4-bet pre-flop, with the money going in frequently early in the hand. If you do not have the bankroll (or stomach!) for big swings then this level may not be for you.

    PLO400 ($2 / $4 blinds) Here the nature of mistakes changes again, since your opponents will so rarely make huge errors you will need to assess their individual leaks and adjust your own play to exploit them. Equity edges against ranges of possible hands become key, hand reading skill a must – and you will need to aggressively defend position to the point where your opponents become wary of playing out of position against you… PLO400+ is not for the faint-hearted!

    Selective Play

    When considering the most profitable tables we also need to note that not all Omaha poker sites have the same number of grinders or experienced players. We already recommended Pokerstars, where the sheer volume of players gives you the opportunity to find weaker tables. Alongside this you need to continually table select. Games can easily become unprofitable if the fishier players leave and a bunch of regulars join. By reassessing each table every 15 to 20 minutes you will be able to spot and move from bad games, which will increase your hourly profit very fast indeed.

  6. Yes good news indeed, you sold a voucher for more gambling money. You are a survivor i'll give you that. Happy Christmas!

  7. Great job on the mini-upswing over the last week on Lock, Tony. It's great to see you finishing the year on a high note.

    Based on PokerTableRatings and Sharkscope (which you swore were inaccurate before but now you seem to trust them since you're winning a bit), here's your total profit for SnGs and cash games in December:

    Total profit: +$207

    You've pretty clearly proven me wrong about whether you can make it as an online pro, so well done! Plus a week of good results means you're guaranteed to keep winning!

    As PokerDogg said, the end of the year is always a great time to check up on goals and see where we were earlier in the year, and if there's anything to work on in 2013.

    I'd echo his sentiment about going back through your old blog posts. You've gotten a lot of great advice lately on the private blog as well as here but there's a lot of gold in the old posts, too.

    You seem to care more about the size of your roll than anything else in life so here's a quick recap of your bankroll over the last year or so:

    August 2011: $14,600
    September 2011: $12,600
    October 2011: $10,600
    November 2011: $8,800
    Devember 2011: $4,650
    January 2012: $5,400
    February 2012: $5,200
    March 2012: $4,500
    April 2012: $6,800
    May 2012: $4,300
    June 2012: $3,700
    July 2012: $2,500
    August 2012: $3,000
    September 2012: $3,300
    October 2012: $4,000
    November 2012: $1,300
    December 2012: $1,400

    So yeah, sort of a tough roll bankroll-wise but it's where you end up -- not where you've been -- that really matters.

    You've survived a tough year and now what it takes to be a successful online pro, right?

    1. Not a pretty picture. ESP for someone who has less living expenses than anyone in the United States. I'd be curious to know how much tony spends a month outside of gambling.

      Delete
    2. no idea how he picked which day of the month to use each month, but all i know is each year is usually an improvement over the previous year. between the age of 18 and 24 i was far worse off than i am today, and i had some jobs then too. but not most of the time. and im sure i spent over $1000 a month to live in vegas before i came to Jean to relax and take it easy. i was spending a lot of that just for all the cabs, my rent alone near hardrock over $800 a month

    3. As I said, congrats on making it through a tough year and proving us all wrong.

      You've got a little over $1,000 to your name, never step foot outside the casino, and are down to your last few Ramens.

      Jean really does sound like a little slice of heaven; thank goodness you ignored everyone and headed there to relax and take it easy.

  8. Tony:

    Any chance of you responding to my post from the previous thread? I honestly think you're going through some transitions right now that make this the ideal time to take the steps I've listed. I also think this could really help you achive the goals you've continually mentioned:

    1) Finding a woman who will love you and nurture you and let you nurture her.

    2) Having a steady place to live

    3) Having a place where you could hang out and play on-line poker

    4) Relieving you of a lot of your stress regarding money

    5) Winning the respect of your readers

    6) Growing your roll so you can really make a run at live poker

    None of the things I've listed below will be easy, and they will take some time. But don't you think the achievement of ALL your life's goals are worth a little effort and time?

    "...any of those would work, but i think id be wasting my time applying unless i had an awful good reason to think theyd hire me. Plus id need it to pay at least $400 a week, otherwise how i would i afford close to $300 a week to live, plus try and recover a roll instead of 100% of the money immediately disappearing on expenses, and never getting ahead?"

    OK, now imagine you have your rent almost entirely covered by a social services agency. And imagine that they have found you a job that allows you to make about $350.00 a week, initially, or $1400.00 per month. And you now are qualified for food stamps.

    So...you are paying VERY little in rent, you are eating MUCH better and healthier, you have people you interact with daily (including A LOT of women...women who would very rarely get to hear stories from guys who've been to the places you've been and done the things you've done - you would be like that semi-dangerous, exotic, guy...chicks dig edgy vibe!), you have ZERO stress, your roll is growing by the month, your medical/dental issues are covered by social services, and you can spend a lot of time in your apartment, playing on-line poker and building the roll even more!

    After a year or so of that (heck, maybe you do really well on-line, playing higher stakes without all the stress, and you start killing it and are ready to cut ties in 6 months), you're roll is over 10k, and you go back to playing full time poker.

    Does that sound like "a waste of time" to you? Or does that sound like the best goddamn plan you've got in front of you?

    s.i.

    1. well if i leave where i am now, i wont have any security like i have now, i dont want to suddenly take on a lot of insecurity, mental stress, and an extra $300 or so a week worth of expenses. I feel more relaxed here than i ever did with a low roll in vegas. and of course, the govt wouldnt ever get me safe public subsidized housing, that takes YEARS--id be too rich to qualify long before my name would come up, i need to find a small place out in the middle of nowhere somewhere else thats safer with a MUCH smaller waiting period if i was to do that. How would i be eating healthier? since id have to BUY food, instead of eating whatever i needed in the buffet, id be buying a lot of junk food at mc ds etc.

      also id never be able to handle being around mentally retarded people with NO intelligence, NONE, all day this is what irritates a lot anyway, because im around others with lower IQs all the time. (which i can tell by them not using a players card, and betting dumbly) being around someone like me is one thing, being around someone whose got a 50 IQ all day is something else entirely. also if u have a job, u cant get ANY type of social services. no one who makes $1400 a month gets any type of food stamps or housing help. this is why no one in the inner city works, because they know it will cause them to lose their benefits. I think thats wrong, i feel like people should get the money regardless of how much they earn, which is why i dont agree with ssi capping u at $2000.

      its wrong of ssi to say, "its ok if u gamble and lose this money, but if u win, were not going to allow that and we will cut u off. but if u lose it all every month, thats ok, we will give to u then. But if u gamble responsibly and turn a small profit, we will take it all away. And please, dont depend on us for help anymore until u learn to become irresponsible."

      i have a steady place to live, hangout in my room playing online poker now.

      Tony, you define intelligence by using a players card and betting dumbly? Sir, I am afraid that anything all these people have suggested is nothing but a waste of time. You have no grasp of reality, what it means to be a productive member of society, social mores, and how to relate to other humans beings. Please get some mental health help.

    5. None of us are geniouses like you, of course, but I'm pretty sure that SSI says something more like:

      "Here, let us help you out. Hopefully you will use this money for food, shelter, and taking care of loved ones. We hope you only need the help temporarily, as that means you're back working and being a productive member of society and that we can help someone else instead who needs it."

      Again, I'm not a genious and I struggle with those big puzzles but I'm pretty sure SSI has never in the history of the program told someone to use the money to gamble and to lose it every month and then come back for more.

  9. decided to send vook $60 more on lock (for $45) roll is still in the $1500s, but im not really as rich as it seems because anyday my monthly internet bill will be deducted. havent left the room yet but will before too long, sitting in my room eating an apple and one of the few remaining soups, just playing online. I am glad to see im actually winning online steadily this week, hope its not a fluke.

  20. Tony:

    I'll start by saying that I've never utilized social services before, and so I'm pretty ignorant in this area; a lot of my ideas regarding what they offer are shaped by media, which may be inaccurate. Help me understand this better, please:

    I know that there is a Las Vegas Housing Authority

    http://www.snvrha.org/resident-services.htm

    and they offer houses/apartments in which people live (some of them look quite nice, to me - some look like nicer areas)

    http://www.snvrha.org/public-housing.htm

    and they also offer vouchers, which qualified people can use to rent apartments/houses almost anywhere in the city. One of these programs works with local agencies find homes for homeless people (churches!!!! outside the govt system, so it's people-helping-people, which I know you prefer)

    Tenant-Based Rental Assistance Program (TBRA)
    Clark County Rental Voucher Program

    Clark County provides funding to SNRHA to support the subsidy of a Look-A-Like Tenant-Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) program. The program provides rental assistance to persons identified and referred to SNRHA by partnering agencies. Referrals must be homeless (with or without disabilities). SNRHA does not accept applications for this program without a direct referral from community agencies listed below that provide case management. These organizations are:

    They also offer help finding jobs, including all those steps one must take to get one (resume/training/etc) and provide support WHILE one participates, including food assistance. To participate, it HELPS to be homeless and to have a mental disability. I know you don't what to be around "mentally retarded people with NO intelligence", but they also place people in the community. I know we work with an agency at UNLV that places people in jobs on our campus.

    You don't need to leave Jean to explore all of these, via phone, and you can get almost everything set up with just a couple well-planned trips to Vegas. If you exhibited good planning skills, I'd even offer to drive a couple times, schedule depending.

    The housing assistance is available for TWO YEARS. That's 24 months of having a guarenteed roof over your head.

    I'm just sayin', the thought of you, during this x-mas season, with a warm roof over your head and food to eat and hanging around new friends, is heart warming.

    Any thought on following through with any of this, or should I just stop bringing it up, Tony?

    2. If you were as good as you think you are at VBJ you'd have more than $1500 to your name wouldn't you?

      And also, there is a multitude of reasons why people are homeless. Such as they have gambling addictions combined with mental disability.

      Why can't you do the research yourself? It's for your benefit. People want to see you happy and healthy, but you need to take SOME sort of ownership in making that happen.

  22. That's pretty good info on housing and worth looking into. I know the lists are probably long but if you put your name on one when u first got rid of your apt they may already have reached you and you could have permanent paid housing in Vegas. Worth looking into at the very least. If you have housing most your stress will go away and you won't have to worry about being on the streets ever again. I know some govt housing is in bad areas but there may be better places they put the elderly or disabled. I know in SF they have subsidized housing in some nice areas which are safe. Good luck. Bookmark that info.

    1. they couldnt possibly reached me near that fast. and its NOT permanent, its only if im broke enough to qualify. once my roll started growing, theyd make me leave. the only way to have it permanent is to lie, (wish i could get si to understand this). id be under a LOT of stress worried all the time id be charged with fraud if lets say my bankroll grew to $5000, and id be worried all the time someone might tell them what i have.

      the only way to really be free from stress, and to feel better about urself, is to NOT be connected with the govt in anyway shape or form.

    2. Some lists move faster than u think. It's been about 2 years and worse case you'd be two years closer to getting housing if u did that. I'm not an expert in the area. There may be a way to get housing and not worry about your roll. I'm familiar with what they do where I live but each city is different. It's your life u gotta do what you want just thought it would at least be worth checking into. It may be a stepping stone to permanent housing. I'm not a big fan of it myself but its better than being on the streets and at least in Vegas you could do what u like to do.

  23. Ps. That's very nice of SI to volunteer to drive you around to accomplish this. You are lucky to have a few people that are willing to take the time to help you instead of fuckin with you. Take advantage of his offer. You won't get too many like that. Between him and. Vince you might be able to finally get set up and have some security.

  24. Tony,

    There have been several very good suggestions with regard to housing opportunities.

    Quit being so damn lazy and do something for yourself.

    Remember, if you build a man a fire your provide him with warmth for one night, but if you light a man on fire, he remains warm the rest of his life!

    Good luck, of course,

  25. Merry Christmas to all!

    Tony and his community have continued to delight, infuriate, horrify and amuse me in equal measure throughout the year.

    Whatever your personal equivalent of "them good machines" is, let's hope you all run well in 2013!
