got my work cut out for me thats for sure

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.

    1. Seconded. There is no nutritional value in your diet.



      Also, glad to see that you've now set your mind on betting more per hand on the same machines that took your roll in the first place because then you can pay for your rooms faster in a place that is nowhere near anywhere to wash your clothes or even purchase affordable and nutritious food.

      Sounds like you've created yourself your own little slice of hell. But hey, at least you're still avoiding honest work like the rest of us right? Work is for suckers who can't play $1 a hand VBJ and eat ramen out of coffee pots all day long.


      Also, as recent evidence has dictated per blackpimps postings of your sharkscopes, online poker isn't exactly working out for you either these days. You're pretty much on there hoping to get lucky, as you refuse to track the player tendencies or analyze their or your own play and make adjustments.

  3. Speaking of work, did you have any takers for your offer on Twitter to take a long walk if someone paid you $500?

    I wish I could help out but the only people I know in Vegas who could rustle up some work for you would need someone to do custodial work that'd involve far too much heavy lifting for your tastes. You know, like picking up a toilet brush a few times a day.

  4. Can somebody tell me how this current way to earn a living in Jean NV is any better than that closet with the red button that needs to be pushed once a minute every hour for an eight hour shift and the payment for that service was all living expenses? I mean back when that thought was originally posted by whomever that was I had proposed that a single M&M candy should be dispensed with each of the once-a-minute red button operations.

    Tony: I will buy a powerball ticket in your honor for the drawing that is coming Weds, Feb 20th. I will post the numbers tomorrow and if it hits I will fedex the ticket to you in Jean to cash out. No strings attached of any sort....

    Good luck (of course), Lester

  5. Look into getting the prepaid T-Mobile Monthly 4G plan that gives you 5 GB of data, unlimited text message, and 100 minutes talk. Then, you can get a Google Voice number (free) and call anywhere in the US for free either through Wi-Fi on your phone or from you PC. This will save you $600 per year.

    1. i have to wait til my 2 yr contract ends. or ill be charged a $300 fee, and will never be able to get service thru tmobile again. i am expecting to have to break it anyway, just logged into my acct and canceled next weeks automatic bill payment, so once it dont go thru it will cut me off. also have removed the last few remaining money out of the bank acct except for far less than $80 to keep it open. so be prepared for the shutdown of the blog within the month without serious financial assistance.

  6. Tony staying in Jean is a short term solution that's not something you can count on. I wish you the best and try to stay positive but I don't think this will end well. I know you are resistant to getting assistance but its your best option. You have people like SI and Vince willing to help you out. They are more concerned and put more effort into helping you than you do yourself. Not ripping on you just don't wanna see you on the street. I just think staying in Jean will result in a slo death to your roll. As always good luck with things. You have people who truly want you to succeed and not end up on the streets.

    1. not really, or they would pick me up without charge, and drive me back and forth to go see a dr, and get a medical card, and get food and do laundry instead of leaving me stuck out here. i dont think Jean is a good option either, but anything that will keep me off the street and away from vegas where its too unsafe to be on the street. am no longer resistent to getting medical coverage because i wont get into trouble now since im well below $2000

    2. You have enough folks taking shots at you so I will keep this brief. I was under the impression SI and Vince wanted to help you when you were in Vegas. It's not reasonable to expect them to make multiple 50 mile trips to Jean to do the things that could have been done in Vegas. SI has offered to help you quite a bit. Anyway hope things work for you. You're a grown man and can live your life anyway you want. Just think having a safety net like assistance would be best for you.

    3. Tony, what makes you think you've earned the $100+ in gas and 6-8 hours of driving that it would require Vince or S.I to become your chauffeurs at their own time and expense?

      Part of friendships and relationships is doing your share. What have you done to earn that massive undertaking you clearly resent them fit not having already started on?

  9. The only place that I have found 1-5 stud with no ante is the Horseshoe in Tunica, MS. It doesn't run 24 hours a day though. During the week it runs from probably 9am till 7pm. I'm sure it probably runs longer hours on the weekends. Housing might be an issue in Tunica though. Also, that game is full of 80 year old nits. Not sure how much money you could make in it.

  10. ^the problem (one of many) is in a way he is happy because hes still engaging in gambling which is the thing that draws him to poker, if he truly loved the game he would take more time and effort attempting to study and master it so his game would be constantly progressing. tony read some poker books and hand histories and online theory while your pend up in jean so that should you choose to return to poker you will be better equipped to do so.

    4. My IQ isn't as high as Kat's (mine is around 150), but if you explain really slowly, may be I can understand.

      While you are at it, can you also explain why there is nothing wrong at all with your poker game? My winrate for 1/2 and 1/3nl is over 10bb/hour over several thousands of hours, yet I find all kinds of things I need to improve on regularly. How is it possible you have a flawless game, yet win so little?

    5. Well right, my IQ is obviously irrelevant; what is relevant is that like Pokerdogg and anyone else who is a consistent winner I work on improving my game constantly. I study about 20 hours/week through reading, watching training videos, and discussing hands and theory with other players I respect. Tony, you've been playing hyper-turbos. Have you watched any of the free training videos linked at 2+2 or read the strategy threads there? Do you have appropriate push-fold charts? Or have you worked all this out game-theoretically from scratch? If the answer is "none of the above, I play by instinct" then you could be a remarkable poker savant, but still get your ass whooped by dummies who have simply done a little work.

    2. Don't wait until you are broke completely cause it doesn't happen overnight. Besides, you can apply online and then go to your appt once it has been set. Also if you don't have a current doctor or diagnosis, SS will send you to one of theirs at no cost to you. And if you have already been denied you have to appeal within the time frame allowed or you have to start over. You can also apply for food stamps on line and if you tell them the truth that you have no place to live and are on the streets you can usually get food stamps in a fairly short timeframe. You should be able to apply with any ID as long as it is valid. People have been telling you for months to take care of this and if you would have you would be well on your way to having a place to live and a check every month. Why do you think it is someone else's responsibility to do these things for you. You want someone to drive 50 miles to take you to do your laundry, and to buy cheap groceries at their expense cause you need what little money you have to gamble. Makes perfect sense to me. You were in Vegas for quite a while and could have went to the social security, food stamp, and housing dept all while you were here. You could have rode the bus to everyone of these offices if you wanted to do it. But the last time I checked, they don't have VBJ machines in these offices. So you weren't interested. Stand up and take responsibility for your own choices and problems.

  12. I am not sure that Tony can get much public assistance in Nevada because I believe that he uses a Louisiana ID. That was one of the reasons he left Vegas last summer was to go to LA to have it renewed. I can't recall all the reasons he didn't want a Nevada ID.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. TBC has multiple issues when it comes to getting a Nevada ID (or from most states for that matter) due to no permanent address and the fact that he doesn't have documentation to prove U.S. citizenship, as all he has is his Canadian birth certificate.

      He had gotten an ID in Louisiana before and doesn't have to show any documents to get it renewed, thus the jaunt to Louisiana.

    2. this is the one issue u understand really well, that no one else does.

      Delete
  13. So you will accept assistance if someone else does the work for you, takes you to do your laundry, buy your food and make multiple trips at no expense to you, but you won't do any of these things for yourself. You should have went when you were in Vegas. You could have went to the SS office while you were in Vegas, you could have rode the bus. And unless things have changed, if you don't have a current doctor and diagnosis, the SS will send you to one of their doctors at no charge to you. And if you were denied originally, they just about always send you to one of their doctors. And if you have already been denied, and don't appeal within the time frame, you have to start all over. You don't have to have a NV id, just a valid id. And you can apply on line and then go to the office once you have an appt. And when they ask for you address, tell them the truth, that you don't have one, you are on the street. However, do not tell them you cant do any of the necessary items without help because then they will have the right to assign someone to be responsible for your check. You can also apply for food stamps online and if you are homeless you can get assistance fairly fast. I told you all of this in a post several months back. If you would have did this already, you would be moving up the list for housing, have food stamps and have your application for SSI processing instead of moaning about not having any money or place to stay. I don't understand why you think it is someone else's responsibility to take care of all of this for you. I thought that was part of the Republicans motto was to take responsibility for your actions and not rely on someone else all of the time.
    And no one left you stuck in Jean. You wanted to go and had someone take you. That was your choice. Quit blaming other people for your decisions. Stand up and take responsibility

    1. i think I did the right thing morally by not trying to get assistance (except for reapplying for SSI) until i got really really broke. (talking about assistance from the welfare dept for the medical). theyres a big moral difference between SSI and welfare. theres no place in Jean to spend food stamps at anyway. and Vince told me exactly what im to apply for at some welfare govt office on martin luther king. its not food stamps, its something called a temporay medical card, which is green in color and called a temporary green card, and then u have 3 months to either get regular medical coverage, and then u can see a dr. Vince told me i then go to a place called the LIED clinic, and id probably have to wait in there the entire day to be allowed to speak with a dr, who after waiting for 4-5 hours will then tell me when to come back with an appt, and that u couldnt do it over the phone, and that u had to go in person.

      i didnt do this sooner because i thought it would be wrong to ask for the help unless i was much worse off financially than i was. I've never considered it wrong to ask individuals for money, that is Gods plan and people should help each other instead of letting them have to depend on the govt. ive been raised to believe asking the govt is wrong (instead of another person) and should only be done in the direst emergency.

      cannot understand why others arent proud im not the type to try and get govt assistance at every opportunity. if more people lived like me, the deficit wouldnt be nearly as much and far less people would be on welfare. my application for ssi has been processing since august and i will hear back on my appeal by march, but i no longer have a way to get the mail. i have told them to send it to vince but he claims theyve sent him not a word.

  14. Tony:

    YOU have to do the work. YOU have to call the offices and talk to the folks and get the information. YOU have to schedule appointments and arrange transport.

    If YOU do all the work, I'd be happy to find some time to pick you up in Jean and take you to an office, schedule depending. The struggle in the past has always been that you want other people to do all the work for you that you can/should do for yourself. You can't drive, so I don't mind providing transport.

    Do the work and then we'll talk.

    s.i.

    p.s. - if you can actually build your roll up from this, I'll be hella impressed. You are scary-low right now.

  15. You should probably reconsider letting your internet getting shut off. Besides gambling, it seems like all you do is go online all day. Are you sure you can live without that? Because that seems doubtful.

    Phone service you can probably live without if you have the internet. You can use skype or something. But I can't see you not going nuts without internet when you spend hours a day on your blog.

    1. well i cant afford another $80 drop to cover the bill, and to be honest i never got around to emptying the bank acct off the atm card like i was going to do on the way to the VBJ to put $100 in each spot. instead i divided up $192 cash between 3 spots. so its still in the bank after all. i will of course pay it for sure if i get the $50 stake on lock. usually its deducted around the 24th of the month.

  16. How'd you drop from $1,000+ to the $800s so quickly, TBC? Isn't that mathematically impossible on that good 100%+ machine when you're betting $1/hand?

    Both welfare and SSI are needs-based entitlement programs from the government. They're for the poor, disabled, blind, and elderly and don't require you to have ever worked or have paid a penny in taxes.

    1. Easy to figure out how TBC dropped from $1000 + to the $800s. He has the same whinging story every time. As usuual he got stuck martingaling and had to get even immediately. Even a dumb ass like me who probably has an IQ of about 100, whatever the fuck that means can figure that out. I've never bothered to have my IQ assessed, I really don't give a shit and don't know or want to know what the scores mean. All I do know is most of those people who claim to be super intelligent, ie TBC for example seem to be wasting whatever a high IQ is supposed to do for them.

    2. i knew i wasnt getting in nearly enough hours to earn my room, especially with saturday coming up so i felt id better keep playing and it will eventually turn around. never once made a bet over 1% of the roll on any one spot. but i continued to run bad, its just variance. Still the math says losing 100% of the roll is practically impossible.

    3. $1 hand? thats only on poor counts. sometimes i bet 3 hands of $9, very rarely though. welfare is given to those without a disability, ssi is only given to those with one, and those are the ones who should get financial help. i think its wrong the govt limits u to $2000 because u should be encouraged to save up money to get off it. People with a disability should never be made to work, unless they want the extra money to have a better life, but it should be a choice. regular welfare programs should be gotten rid of for those who arent disabled. i dont think SSI should be means tested, people who are disabled should be taken care of.

    4. Tony stop making excuses for everything. Just go to the farking SSI office and start the process how hard is that.

    5. Here's two contradictions-

      #1 - you said a few posts ago that you don't think anyone should rely on the government for help

      #2 - you always harp on how people shouldn't treat you differently because of a disability, but then now you say they should take care of you? Uhhhh. The only thing preventing you from working is being a lazy entitled ass with a chip on your shoulder

    6. You're 100% capable of doing light custodial work but feel it's beneath you and doesn't pay enough; you have your hand out for SSI money.

      A fat black woman in Mississippi is 100% capable of doing light custodial work but she feels it's beneath her and doesn't pay enough; she has her hand out for welfare money.

      Tell me again how these two situations are different?

      Delete
    7. Just so you know the difference, SSI is for people with a disability that have not worked enough and paid into the system, SS disability is for people that have a disability but have worked most of their lives but now can no longer work. They have paid into the system and are now getting their contributions back. Welfare is for people that are low income with children (most of the time) that need some assistance. The reason SSI is means tested is because you never paid anything into the system and are taking out of the system and if you have 2K in savings, you don't need taxpayers help. If someone on ss disability works a part time job for extra cash they lose part of their disability so why should someone that has never paid into the system be able to get a disability check and have a large amount of assets. While there are some that abuse the welfare system, the majority of people get off of welfare because most states only allow you to be on it for a set period of time. Also the average time frame on an appeal is at least a year if not longer in NV. And since so many people are now applying for disability it takes longer. At one time you could go on line and check the status of your appeal with SS. The medical card you were talking about has nothing to do with SSI or food stamps. You could have applied for food stamps while you were in vegas and gotten it with no problem. I know someone who applied on line and did the interview on the phone and in about 10 days got the approval and their EBT card in the mail, they never went into the office. There is nothing wrong with getting assistance if you need it, that is what we pay taxes for. You go on and on about people should be proud of you for not taking a "handout" and taking care of yourself but that is not true, you rely on other people to do all the work for you. If you have to do the work to get the assistance you start in with the handout crap again. But on a lighter note if your appeal is approved you will probably get another back pay lump sum

  17. "i always run bad when my bankroll is low"

    'running bad' as your using it here would indicate running on the negative side of natural variance. the fact that you claim it happens everytime your roll is low clearly shows it isnt natural variance/run bad its a mental issue of scared money making you play bad, i just want you to realize you dont just happen to mathematically/statistically run bad when you stress out...YOU personally play poorly.

    1. i reduced my buyins to $2-6 spread from $1-2 NL so i wouldnt get affected and play poorly, and quit taking overs on the final day for the same reason. it did work, i played great poker that last day at texas but had horrible luck, and donkeytax didnt see me play poorly at hooters either. some hands at texas i saved a ton of money on such as a hand i had KJ preflop on the button, called $4, flop was KQ6 rainbow and the guy in front of me bets $6 after 3 checkers. i made it $12 maximum raise, fold fold fold, call. turn comes 9, he checks i bet $6 he calls. river blank, check check, he has aa. i think i played it right. cant blame me for liking the hand and the way the action was heading.

      and a lot of the loss was with 2 hands, about $50 when i had QQ ($30 preflop on a kill game) when it was still good, and also AQ spades, ($120,000 royal possible) and flop of T83 with 2 spades forced me to call 2 more $9 bets and one raise and got out on the river.

  18. recovered $56 at VBJ, roll is back in the $900s, am only $31 less than what i came to Jean with, and funny thing, ive earned exactly $31 in comp dollars since i came also. An old backer from years ago might be sending me $50 on lock if he can go thru Vook to transfer, vook seems to be asleep. This would be to grind up playing sngs. i really dont see how ill go broke unless i get so low i cannot spread my bets, because with the max bet at 1% of ur roll, u arent supposed to ever go broke. internet and phone expenses could destroy me though. if i dont have faith in the math, i really do have no hope to survive.

    1. Show me the math where it says 1% max bet = 0% risk of ruin.

      When I see statements like that repeatly makes me question your math skills, or your ability to reason or learn. Yourclaim had been refuted numerous times.

  19. "and donkeytax didnt see me play poorly at hooters either"

    this is true you played effective short stack but your variance is gonna be a #^$^&thch when you buy in at $50.00.

    i dont agree with you chasing certain promos to the extreme you do though. sure going runner runner royal and dinking a big jackpot would be nice but those chases add up fast when you short rolled like you are.

  21. Until the bets-less-than-one-percent-of-ur-roll-never-go-broke theory proves to be true or not here are the Feb 20 powerball numbers that I bought for you last night Tony:

    01-27-30-38-48 pb=28

    That was a random draw with powerplay add-on applied.

    Good Luck (of course), Lester

    1. Crap.... I just noticed the ticket was only $2 and it says POWER PLAY NO. The moron convenience store clerk screwed up a simple single ticket purchase. But I also missed the one dollar off cost since I had bought gas at the same time.

      So no power play action on this ticket Tony.

      Regards, Lester

    2. It doesn't effect the Jackpot so if you hit the big one you saved $1 and still get full JP

  23. tony, as others have said, i have no idea how your mathematically justifying no being able to go broke betting 1% of your roll on vbj bets on a -ev machine (you claim +ev because of comps but i disagree)...the $ will bleed off slowly is all. if not post the actual equation (RoR equation has no use here) that is telling you this.

    2. Shufflemaster TMS 300 machines shuffle after each round. It doesn't matter what it says on the machine, the firmware was updated since then. There's no law on the books in Nevada that would hold the casinos liable for this misinformation.

      You could easily verify this yourself by tracking a few thousand dealt cards and analyzing the data. You'll see that the running count of one round doesn't inversely correlate to the running count of the previous round, which would clearly happen in the case of a virtual 6 deck shoe with 4 deck pen.

      Of course, you aren't interested in figuring out if you actually have an advantage. That's what a successful advantage player would do. Instead, you're happy to just believe that you have an advantage, since that's what a degenerate addict would do.

    3. in that case its a good thing i dont play the shufflemaster ones anymore, and now play ones manufactured by a different company called "dealers angels" instead. my much better results on these tend to confirm my supposition. and remember 1% betting is whats recommended as kelly betting to not go bust. if ur roll decreases ur 1% bets decrease too, so u never run out of money. So far this trip, ive ran thru $6000 coinin, and am still up $12.

  24. you should quit approving the spam posts about the fucking caesar's stock.

    it has nothing to do with this blog.

    1. How is discussing what is happening with a stock spam? There is nothing spam about it. Just discussing what is happening with a gambling stock.

      And it works pretty well with a bunch of other bullshit that no one is benefiting from including the idiot that doesn't listen to a word you say

      Yeah, much more interesting you telling us all what SSI is intended for...

      riveting!!!!!

  25. Tony like i have said before, the VBJ machine you are playing is a slow death.
    Tony no casino has a game in there building that can beat the house in the long run, even poker most players cannot beat the game in the long run.

  26. i dont think its morally right for poor people to use their govt money to pay for their living expenses. they should invest it and let it grow so they dont ever need the assistance in the future, this will cut the deficit and save the taxpayers money and they should all appreciate me for feeling this way.

    if everyone had to gamble for a living, and people were just left to die who couldnt survive off gambling, what a wonderful, more compassionate and caring world this would be. then people could understand and relate to why people get mad when they lose to cocksucking retards, and theyd quit condemning others for not knowing how to find work.

    Those who gamble should be considered God's (and worshipped as such) for knowing how to use their brain to earn money instead of their fists.
