Ok, i made a number of decisions last night, and eventually came home $20 ahead, when i probably shouldve came home up a lot more. at one point i couldve came home in the $1800s again instead of the $1600s. or should i just be happy i didnt lose?
so i woke up about a half hour before 114am, and by the time i was ready to leave, called samstown on the phone, and found out that AGAIN the game had just broke, which was really odd since it was thurs morning between midnite and 6am, where the $100 aces cracked is in effect for ANY aces, along with the other $1000 for flopping quads. i did get money at boulder station last night for flopping quads.
so i decided to go up the street to eastside cannery, closest place to walk to, and i knew id still have aces cracked til 3am, and could always jump on the boulder hwy bus to boulder station or downtown, or even the 202 flamingo bus to the palms or nearby. (such as terribles, walking short ways to hardrock, wynn, V, etc). wasnt sure if that was the right decision, option 2 wouldve been to just plan to take the bus downtown boulder hwy and go to the nugget.
as i was walking to the eastside cannery, i couldnt get bravo live working, so i couldnt call the cannery, so i saw a bus coming, and jumped it to boulder station, i had my laptop with me also. (i brought it to stay off the VP). Now i did consider that a good decision, although i worried it might get stolen if i opened it in public, like on the bus. (and it couldve got lost, i left it behind at boulder station and was relieved security found it before someone else did). I had checked with the cannery the day before if it was ok to sit at an empty table using my laptop while i waited for my seat to be open, and got the OK.
so i get to boulder, take a seat in the $2-4 game with ANY royal paying $5000. (and the BBJ) not much happens in the game, game gets short, and then i hit a HHJ for flopping quads for $160 and gave the dealer $10 which ended up being a mistake as little profit as i came home with. game soon broke, and i went out to the VP machine. not to play it for real money (was i lying to myself?) but to redeem $5 points into free play. i ran it up to $17 and then on a martingaled losing series, inserted a $100 to make the next bet, lost, and kept playing. ended up losing $40+. at one point was down more.
came back to play $4-8 omaha high, definitely a mistake, but left when i saw i was going to have my blind straddled, and went to catch the bus to samstown as the stud game was about to open. (a great example of WHY i am awake the wrong hours). no ones commented on poker Johnnys 24 hour casino suggestion, but i am awake the worst possible hours for what i should be playing.)
and of course no ones commented why its always so hot in my apt in the middle of winter without me even turning the heat on that i posted about on twitter. Nor on alot of them weird dreams ive ever discussed. One thing im glad to say is for whatever reason, ive not seen a roach in a long time.
so i played stud at samstown, when that was probably the wrong decision. (other option being to go home and eat since i hadnt ate and play online since that game kind of isnt beatable with the heavy rake and good players). i sat there 2+ hours and lost $25 or so. when the omaha8 game opened (and it WAS a good game as far as the action--i moved to it). But i was starting to feel frustration being ready to eat, and giving back so much of what id been up earlier, i couldnt play my best, and dont that mean u should leave even if the game is really loose, and u need to stay awake during these hours instead of the hours i know ill be waking up tonight going home then? some people say if i dont feel like playing, regardless of if i need the hours, dont play.
anyway i lost about $60 in the omaha and left. no real hands except for 3 really nice ones that missed everything. scooping one big pot wouldve got it all back, but i never had any pieces of pots. i felt bad leaving such a good game after being in bad ones all night, but after already playing for 8-10 hours, didnt feel like playing anymore. wanted to eat, and relax at home online.
so i think i made the RIGHT decision in leaving.
and now i think im making the right decision by going to sleep, going back out to play to fix my hours wont be good, i sure cant win now. i got to sleep when my body needs rest. the only way to really fix hours is to be in a casino hotel with alarm clock and phone, and then force myself up if i could walk to the poker room after say 5-6 hours sleep and then go back up. when i have to travel to play, (travel to me is not being at the casino to live) then i get into a routine thats hard to adjust.
