The reason i dont think I'm a bad DON higher limit online player is not only because i used to do well on BCP and pokerstars in the old days, its because when i lose a sng, i see the person who beat me NOT PLAYING WELL. and believe when i say me raising to 90 preflop, him reraising to 240, me re-raising to 700 and him shoving allin 1500 with QQ is a BAAD play. even more so in a DON format tourny where getting first gains u nothing.
the real reason online dont work out so well is there is NOT enough games going. and the amount u win per hour is so low if u arent playing a lot of tables. except for that omaha8 game in summerlin, i really dont know what chance i have to recover unless i want to risk losing everything $100 at a shot in a good $1-2 NL game like at the nugget. And if i did that, it would be better off if i took a bus to cali and just slept outside every night outside oceans 11. (because if no one was aware of my financial situation and my blog, then maybe theyd not make moves against me, or at least i wouldnt be tempted to call THINKING they might just be making moves against me.
playing here at the casino for rooms on the VBJ isnt working so well for me either, im down to $1200 again. yeah i lost over $400 today, also lost my discipline and bet the entire stack on every hand on a plus 6 count which included 2 bets of $100 each. good thing i surrendered both hands and wasnt doubling or splitting without enough to do so.
if i was to leave today, id get back the comps for mondays room, and tues room, totalling $24, and i also have $28 more in comps for $52 altogether. would anyone come get me if i got them some gas, and id also be able to arrange to sell them up to $50 worth of gas total for a little bit of cash. it would get me back to poker with the last of my money. Being here dont seem to work, but i cant really go into vegas when i have no place to live when i get there can i? i just would like to go somewhere and play poker if anyone is willing to play poker. maybe ill use my allegiant voucher to fly out of here. but where? anywhere in MT or WA offering spread limit that wouldnt know me at all? i think those are the type of games i should be in. is there anywhere i can play in vegas no one will know me at all? grump is right.
oh--and as far as this months $93 phone bill about to be auto deducted out on the 12th at any moment, i just got done calling it, and REMOVING the auto deduction feature from my phone. that way it cant be done in the future. i managed to do it in time before the 12th to have it removed, and then i paid the bill with the $100 security deposit i gave them last Nov back in reno when i got a new phone, that i was now eligible to get back. in fact had i remembered it i couldve got it back last month, but id already paid the bill. and ive also got a $7 credit now on next months bill. so at least that bill is no longer hanging over my head about to drop me down another $100.
