managed to eke out $27 profit tonight, so thats a total of $68 GAIN on the VBJ machine here since returning to Jean. still at one point tonight i was winning $80 on it instead of $27, there were 2 drunken mexicans who were the most horrible players id ever seen. constantly hitting hands like hard 17 and hard 18 against the dealers bust card. managed to somehow get a food ticket, been lucky they've still been giving me those. So my rolls still in the $1000s. I really worry soon though about my monthly $80 internet bill coming due in about 5 days. wish i could somehow shut off 100% of my expenses, and i really wish there was some laundry facilities nearby.
the entire time ive been here my total bets have been so little ive only earned $11 in comps, meaning the entire total of everything ive bet in the past 2 days has only amounted to $1100. that will give u an idea how small im betting since i dont wanna go broke. i just cant bring myself to bet more than $1 one hand on negative counts. yet i must somehow step up the pace, for had i not had leftover comp dollars from before, and a free night coming to me i didnt know about, the total amount in comps id been charged for fri nite, sat nite, and sunday nite so far wouldve been $57 in comps. now i know that sounds really cheap for a holiday weekend, but the sad thing is i only earned $11 comps betting so small, so somehow im going to have to be putting in a ton more hours, maybe even try to sit there for 24 hours straight. im seriously worried about running out of comps, and no way oculd i ever pay cash, then the rooms are about 3x as much per night. at $2 a bet instead of $1 or 3 hands even without it being a plus count, i still am over 100% using comps and my theoretical loss is only 35c on every $100 bet so maybe i should be willing to bet more just so i can earn the comps a hell of a lot faster instead of trying to make sure i turn a profit besides the comps. i wonder what sbr would recommend and the chaperone since they are the ones familiar with the VBJ, but they probably wouldnt know since theyve never been short of money.
seriously about to run out of food in the room too, im cooking one of the remaining 5 ramon noodles using the coffeepot. thats why i need to get to a food4less or a walmarts, where i can greb about 30 of them at 28c each, and like 5 $1.29 boxes of crackers to piece on. Would be eternally grateful to anyone who can assist me with food or laundry. I had no choice but to go to Jean, and to go immediately when Vince offered after work fri nite. otherwise i was so dead tired and nowhere to sleep, and my $980 i made it out of vegas with would be far less right now. I knew i had no business playing anymore poker without a lot of rest, a break, and a good plan of where to find a beatable game i could still afford to sit in (omaha8 maybe?). also people shouldnt worry about me not blogging. i should still be able to blog unless im so broke id lose internet access.
i dont know why that camstudio recording wont upload, maybe its because it told me it had to save the audio and video files seperately. going to try this new program (instead of camstudio) someone recommended, delete the other video, and try it again. the video was way too long anyway. the upload is in the big box on top with the X in my previous post if anyone will click on that X and try and figure out how to open it.
down to $4 on lock, so im too low to play multiple sngs at a time instead of 1. am in the $3 DON 6 max right now with 4 of us left and praying i survive so i dont need to redeposit. even though maybe i should, maybe i should deposit $200 so i have a way to earn $30 or so a day from the room online, but then again im taking on more risk than im comfortable with right now. i think i should just put in more hours on the VBJ so i can build up the comps, but just make sure i dont bet too much. have cut back to 3 spots at once at the most instead of all 5 spots at once.
i still think id have enough, and not go broke at poker, if i could simply spend all 24 hours playing $1-5 no ante stud. there is not a single casino in the USA anymore it goes all 24 hours no ante, and very few it goes either no ante, or 24 hours. theres a few places left with no ante, and also a few places left theres a 24 hour $1-5 stud, but those arent the same places. all the 24 hour games have antes. and the no ante games it breaks up. i really really miss the good old days of poker. sure i was often with no more money than i have now, but at least i could afford to sit in the poker games, and rent a cheap $50 room somewhere per week in a rooming house. living in a rooming house with community bathrooms is a lot different than living in someones home. most people would feel safer in someones home. i felt safer elsewhere because i liked the idea of not being around other people, and having a lock on the door.
