today just wasnt that good of a day, out 20% of my entire net worth or more, and im not in the best of moods

sitting at home, playing $2 PLO8 double or nothing sngs. i dont think i can play good poker anymore, but im still considering riding the bus to boulder station later.

Finally am cool enough to turn the AC off, its so odd how the bathroom is always so hot from keeping the lights on all the time, and how i have to turn the ac on quite a bit to cool it in this house, but never have to turn on the heater almost never. And my mom asked me on facebook if my birthday package arrived yet, but the office said that i had no mail. am proud to report its been well over a week or so since i last saw a roach, anyone have any theories as to why they all disappeared? they came in and sprayed once or twice and i used up the $3 boric acid from walmarts.

i dont even see how ill maintain my place long enough to make it to chop my sun feb 10 birthday freeroll at samstown as broke as im getting. i cant afford to stay here, and the only way ill be able to survive and get off machines is to get out of town. i have no self control or discipline, and i wish my true friends would drive me around and find me a counselor who will accept me without cost.

and someone who gives me BETTER ADVICe this time. for the last counselor, being a woman, advised me to talk to someone else other than her--actually what she said was to find a friend i could call anytime i felt the urge to play a machine, that would talk me out of it. and the other advice was to "write down my feelings". of course i followed both of those pieces of advice religiously, and all my blog readers and people i texted were turned off by me publishing emotions and feelings, and talking nonstop about my problems with grump, Josie and Claudia is what drove them away, and made them say they couldnt handle it anymore, and im sure lightning will feel that way soon.

I dont feel like i have any real friends. not only will no one hang out with me if i dont spend the entire day traveling to them on multiple buses, a real friend is someone who will get out of bed at 3am to come bail u out of jail. at least thats what ive seen on multiple peoples facebook statuses in the past i am supposed to repost, but never do since i consider them chain letters.

i figured its been long enough since i talked to Claudia that she should forgive me by now, but of course, not being Christian, she doesnt believe in forgiveness as taught by Jesus. i found her number on a search online, her home number instead of her cell, because i dont think she still has the same cell. its the right number all right, the answering machine answers in her voice, and on the cell it does NOT, just an automated voicemail, repeating the phone number instead of her voice. her home phone answers in her voice. someone call it for me and find out why she didnt forgive me when i tried to be nice and quit talking about her in the blog, for she wont talk to me. (edited by author)

truthfully she could be charged with attempted murder, for calling the police on me when i was in Jean. for anyone knows the police value human life no more than she (or any liberal) does. This is why i hate liberals so much, they place no value on the lives of others. especially those with mental disabilities. The police a lot of times try to shoot to kill anyone they perceive as having a mental problem without cause. they have committed a lot of unjustified murders of unarmed people in vegas u can read about online. and Claudie put me in a position where they couldve opened fire into my hotel room without warning as i lay sleeping. I know the Lord Jesus wants me to forgive her for this, or he wont forgive me, but its not easy. wouldve been easier had she eventually talked and described how she was feeling and why she did it. alot of police work for Obama, they have no compassion, only the oathkeepers organization can be trusted. i was lucky that nice understanding officers came.

her initial words, back in the old days when Josie was warning me to not sign that contract i signed, still haunt me to this day. about how she said to not think of her as a friend, that she was only doing things for me like my laundry to try and get an article out of me. why she later became intimate ill never understand.

anyone know why all the MGM properties suddenly started listing their games on bravo?

and it dont seem the room at the pioneer in laughlin exists. at least there is nothing about it on their website. i dont put too much stock in that guys word because he also said arizona dont have any spread limit NL games with the $500 cap. and he claims he is from phoenix.

and now for how i lost all the money today, knocking a $2000 roll down to $1600, and todays hand history post. i will admit dablackpimp is right, ive not been posting near enough hand histories lately. it all started out when i sat down about 11.30 in the stud game, and i seen it had different players and was loose, and i actually started off doing good eking out a $35 profit, then had to wait for a holdem seat, but eventually got one. but man did i lose money fast in that holdem game. i did what had always worked for me before, (raising with whip-it hands to try and steal the antes and get the extra $25 in promo money). 2-6 offsuit, 2-7 offsuit, 2-8 offsuit, 2-9 offsuit and 3-8 offsuit. But today i got called every time. and was out the whole $119 within 90 minutes. i dont think i played well.

i got 2-7 offsuit, and made it $8 in late position. 2 others called dammit. flop comes 256 and i bet $6, get one caller. turn comes 8, and i bet and get raised, i call. river comes J, we both check, and he has KK. and two other times it was a similiar situation, all because i kept trying to win the promo $25 extra with the whip-it hands. they are even out of them donkey tshirts and this was the last week for the promo. i have no idea what the promo will change to next saturday.
i dont feel the old men play the promo right, they either fold or call with them hands but never preflop raise.

so i walked out $84 stuck after losing the $119, thoroughly pissed off. went to the bar (only VBJ machines) with the even money BJ but at least they allow doubling and splitting unlike all the harrahs properties. bet 25c, 50c, on up to 20 credits on the $5 denom of $100 total, which is idiotic of me to not go to a table for the final few bets since it pays even money, but when out a lot and pissed, its hard to think straight. u see i am too emotional of a person and its my downfall, and why i need the counseling but its got to be from someone who really wants to help make a change this time. preferably a guy counselor. For if a woman finds u unatractive sexually, she wont try to help, but instead to get u out of her sight as wuick as possible. if a guy counselor finds me unattractive sexually, i will not let it bother me, for as i told claudia, i quit having sex with men over 20 yrs ago.

yeah im so much a fool betting $100 where im getting paid even money, i must learn to not do self destructive things out of sheer angry worry and frustration, and i must quit playing in games so small i feel like i must "force the action to make any money". but what else can i do? i cant afford to play NL. seriously, i need to be looking for a loan

  1. Most stuff in here isn't worth responding to, other than

    #1 - I've asked you this before. How do you think a counsellor is supposed to fix you? You went to all of two sessions and didn't instantly receive what you were expecting, but you've never said what your expectations were.

    #2 - can you elaborate further on the sex with men stuff?

    #3 - you can't get a loan without a steady income (meaning a job)

  4. Wow. There is just so much bat-shit craziness about this post, it's hard to figure where to start. Fist of all, I think I've got some catching up to do:

    "i quit having sex with men over 20 yrs ago."

    WHAT?!? You used to have sex with men??

    "someone call it for me and find out why she didnt forgive me"

    Tony, first of all - don't ask people to live your life for you. Grow up, and do things for yourself. Second: It's rude to post people's private phone numbers on a blog. You know better than that.

    "but of course, not being Christian, she doesnt believe in forgiveness as taught by Jesus."

    Don't get me started. So only Christians can forgive people?

    "truthfully she could be charged with attempted murder, for calling the police on me when i was in Jean. for anyone knows the police value human life no more than she (or any liberal) does."

    Tony, this is absurd even for YOUR standards. People are WORRIED about you, and care enough to actually DO something about it, and you're saying they should be charged with attempted MURDER??? What the hell is wrong with you?

    "her initial words, back in the old days when Josie was warning me to not sign that contract i signed..."

    What contract??

    Tony, I notice that whenever you lose a large portion of your roll, you immediately revert into bat-shit-crazy mode spewing a bunch religious nonsense and hate speech. And you wonder why you have no friends??

  6. MGM started listing on Bravo because they were losing biz by not being on it and they were told as much by many players. You haven't seen any roaches because of the boric acid. Betting $8 with 2-7 offsuit to try to win the worst promo in history is so sad I don't even know where to start but I'll try. I'm no fan of old men poker players but they ARE playing that promo correctly by completley ignoring it! Is a small chance at $25 going to help your situation if you hit it? is almost certainly losing $14 six times going to make your situation worse?

  11. Lots of amazing stuff here but only going to focus on the poker:

    What makes you think that it's profitable to change the way you'd normally play those promo hands -- 26o, 27o, 28o, 29o, and 38o -- to that extent that a hand you'd normally instantly fold becomes a raise? Yeah, we know you won a lot of those shirts that one time and did well with it but that doesn't mean it's profitable. Some people win the lottery every weekend but it doesn't mean it's +EV to buy lotto tickets.

    You have to balance that potential extra $25 bonus with how increased variance will impact your play, as you're opening up your range and playing more hands. You also have to adjust for the other players at the table and how they're playing.

    It sounds like you're somewhat of a regular in this game, so you also have to account for the fact that some of them may know your playing style pretty well by now and how much you love chasing promo dollars.

    Last but not least, you have to factor in your own leaks as far as your semi-regular monkey tilt blowups that are often started by quickly losing a few buy-ins playing poker that you try to get back immediately on dem machines.

    You'd really need to play with PokerStove and various ranges against broad types of opponents to answer whether that promo is ultimately profitable for you, but I think we all know that's never going to happen.

    If you refuse to do the work to answer the question in terms of math (as far as how you should play that promo), all you can do is play it the way you want to and track the results. Put each of the promo hands you play into your cell phone with the results. Don't try to note the whole hand, just note that you played one and how much you won or lost, like: 1: -18, 2: +34, 3: -16, 4: -20, 5: -22.

    Don't say you don't know how to do that in your phone. Just do a draft text message to yourself and enter it like the above. Then when you're home save it to your laptop.

    If that data shows you're consistently showing profits the way you're playing it, keep playing it that way. If you're losing money, stop playing it that way.

    I know that particular promo is ending but the process is what's important. You have to stop chasing all these promo payouts that have you changing up how you play. Jebus knows you have enough leaks as it is, so it's pretty much guaranteed that raising it up with 27o isn't a good play for you in the long run -- especially when you're highly prone run off to chase losses by playing even money BJ.

  16. I have to say, the whole claudia thing is partly her fault..

    If she didn't want parts of her private life shared openly on the internet, she shouldn't have gotten involved with someone who shares everything (appropriate or not) on the internet...

    Kind of silly to get involved with someone you know for a fact is going to do something you don't want then get angry about it. Only thing she can do is change her phone #..

  19. Tony,

    Other people that may be inclined to assist you in the future will be put off by the fact that you put her number in your blog after she did something that made you angry.

    You have my phone number and it you posted it on the blog because you you thought I had wronged you, I would not be pleased.

    As you have state many times: Forgiveness is the Christian thing to do, so do it and the number down before you lose even more friends.

  20. You really should have Claudia arrested for attempted murder.

    But oh shit! That means you'll have to call the cops on HER, and that means you'll be guilty of attempted murder too!

    But don't worry, anybody who reports you will be guilty of attempted murder, and so on and so on, until everyone in the world is guilty of attempted murder.

  21. Tony, you know Claudia and I did not always see eye to eye when I was in Las vegas last year. So you should also know that I probably will not be receiving any Christmas or Birthday cards from her, as we did not part on the best of terms the last time I saw her. That being said, if you will not listen to the voices of reason from others that she does like, please listen to me.

    You have to get over this obsessive infatuation that you have with her, and get completely out of her life. Why on earth she ever jumped into the sack with you will remain one of the world's greatest mysteries, with the answer known only to God and her. Just consider yourself lucky that in a moment of sympathy or madness on her behalf, you got lucky.

    This non stop talk about her and the posting of her home number is very close to stalking and harrassment. You have provided people who may not have known, her home number which makes it very easy to track down her full name and home address. I don't know about the USA, but in my Country you have crossed the boundaries of privacy and have committed a jailable offence.

    You must take down that phone number IMMEDIATELY, and hope that she has not seen your latest blog post. Because if she has, she has every right to complain to the Police. The next time they come knocking on your door, they might not be as polite and understanding as the last time.

He's a sympathetic guy, really. But you don't always get that sense by reading his blog posts. I think I need to actually spend a little time with Tony every now and then, or else I sort of forget this.

    Tony, in today's Western society, the majority of people will accept you for what you are, as a person. Not for theirs, or your sexual inclinations or feelings. Although you have opened a huge can of worms with your revelations of previous same sex encounters, (the nutters will be coming out of the woodwork over this one) this should not make any difference to the way your friends think about or treat you. For what ever reason you chose to engage in that kind or relationship, that is your business. But having done so, you can never state again in your blog that it is morally, religeously or sexually wrong, and degrading to women and unfair to men, for women to engage in same sex relationships. After all you are guilty of having done exactly the same thing.

  30. For those of you looking for poker commentary from Tony (for the record, I believe this is the first time in the 5+ years I've followed Tony that he's posted about having sex w/ men.), here's a post from Tony that offers insight into his poker thoughts:

    "i would agree with playing 99 and AJ HU against the fish and trying to get him to go allin preflop. this is so the fish cannot outplay u postflop of course. get the money in while u have the best of it.

    of course, this adds a lot of variance, and is why i am avoiding NL games lately. not that its doing any good, im still the same fucking donkey throwing away everything in the machines including tonights big loss"

    This is from a link to Poker Grump's blog (man...I'm going to miss reading his blog - I really enjoy his writing!)

    http://pokergrump.blogspot.com/2013/02/tighten-up-or-loosen-up-against-ultra.html

    It does beg the question of why Tony is so worried about being outplayed post flop, even by fish. I know people have speculated about Tony's post flop play before, but this really does indicate an inability to play past the flop. That would be very odd for a "poker pro of 30+ years".

    s.i.

    p.s. - Tony's rabid homophobia is much more easily understood after knowing he "used to", in fact, be homosexual/bisexual.

  31. I'm a little confused why everyone is shocked/outraged over TBC posting Claudia's home phone number. He's done this sort of thing over and over and over.

    Ditto for the man sex. He's mentioned it several times in the past and then tried to pass it off as an angry joke. That coupled with the fact that he's repeatedly stated dude-on-dude sex is fine but chick-on-chick sex is horrible should have tipped you off long ago that TBC has batted from both sides of the plate.

    As far as being hypocritical about homosexuality and gay marriage, his stance is actually pretty consistent with everything in TBC-land that he's stated.

    He can do whatever he wants if it benefits him; anyone or any action that potentially robs him of a benefit is horrendous, immoral, and an affront to baby Jesus.

    Gay women are terrible because they reduce the available pool of women who might sit behind him at the poker table, not because the Bible says so. Rich people are terrible because they hoard money that should be given to TBC. Happy couples are terrible because they hoard love.

  32. Glad to see you removed that ph# Tony. But did you even consider that if somebody called Claudia at home on your behalf that you could believe the response posted back here for you? Or maybe the call didn't even get made but a negative response was posted how would you even know it was true or not? Or if somebody told you that they talked to Claudia and that she forgave you and really wanted to talk to you again just so you would repeatedly call that home phone number upteen times would you have fallen for that trap? There was no good that have possibly come from posting that home ph# Tony.

  33. First things first: posting her phone number and accusing her of attempted murder was a complete dick move.

    That said, maybe you could do a post sometime to explain some of the details more about your relationship with Claudia, as it's not exactly a standard story.

    We only got a few hints here and there and people might be more sympathetic to you and how you feel right now if we had a little more information.

    She first contacted you, right? And she paid for your ticket to Louisiana and some other expenses, in exchange for you signing a contract? And she made it really clear at that time that you guys would only have a business relationship and that nothing romantic would ever happen?

    We never really heard what the contract was for, except you much later mentioned an article that she planned that didn't pan out. Didn't it include that you had to clear your blog posts with her first? Was she writing an article? A book? A screenplay?

    You also mentioned the possibility of making money from the agreement with her. Were you guys going to split any profits? 50/50? 80/20?

    Several people close to you advised not getting involved with Claudia, from both a business standpoint and a relationship standpoint. What were they worried about? It seems like there must have been some big warning signs, as otherwise friends should have been happy for you to have an opportunity to make some extra cash and/or get a little hand holding.

    Was the contract and agreement still in place when you guys were more than just friends? Was she still doing "research" when the more romantic stuff was going on? Was she still giving you money or paying for things then, or were paying for everything?

    Sorry for all the questions but like I said, it's hard for us to understand your side of things when we don't have all the details.

    It'd be great to get a whole post talking about this stuff.

    I think a lot of people are focusing on how you're treating Claudia now (acting obsessive and stalking her and posting her phone number) but they're skipping over the part where she contacted you and had you sign a contract for some sort of arrangement she hoped to profit from.

    She must have read your blog and done some research and known about your past history with people like Britney and how desperate you were/are for a woman in your life.

    She also clearly told you no hanky-panky, then later decided to introduce hanky-panky to your relationship. Maybe she fell in love (stranger things have happened) but it'd be easy for you to feel like you were a science experiment and that she was just doing more research. Especially if she then just completely disappeared from your life entirely with no goodbye when the business plan didn't pan out.

    I'm not saying she did that, just that it's hard for us to know what happened with so few details. People might be a little more on your side if they knew more of the story and how everything unfolded.

  36. Tony:

    You are missing the boat here. IF you could get onto a site that actually generated you income (if I understand right, you don't get money for this, do you?), you would do MUCH better with a vlog set up!

    If you were to post videos, regularly, you would increase viewership substantially. A lot of the people who currently follow your blog have never been privy to the full-monty of Tony; a vlog would give people MUCH better insight into your thought processes AND into the nature of your ASD.

    Think about it. I bet someone might even loan/give you an old video camera, if you agreed to post at least twice a week. It would be a good source of income, as a lot of people interested in ASD would also view.

    One bonus for you would be that anyone viewing your vlog would know what you look like and what your voice sounds like. I know you worry that people get surprised at your voice or looks, and by posting vlogs you would know that anyone (women) who is contacting you is already fully aware of those things. That may relieve some anxiety regarding those initial meetings, as you've shared that causes you a good deal of stress. I honestly think it would make you more appealing as a person; you do have a softer, kinder, approachable side that does not always come across in your writing.

    Give it some thought.

  37. Video camera not needed, assuming Tony's laptop has a built-in camera, as they almost all do now. You can just go to YouTube and make a talk-to-the-camera video directly on their web site without needing to use separate camera-control software. Then embed the video in a post.

    However, I disagree with the general point. There are no video blogs I follow regularly. I much prefer written ones. I can read them faster than the author can speak, and I can scan to see if there's interesting content without taking the time to read start to finish. Vlogs generally just take too much time. However, as an occasional different way to spice things up, an embedded video is fine.

      On the whole, I agree with your point - I rarely watch vlogs and I don't generally enjoy that format.

      However, I do believe Tony would prove the exception to the rule, for the following reasons:

      1) He does come across better in person than in his writing. He comes across as a harmless guy, very non-threatening, who's lost and trying to do his best to get by. In writing he comes across as vindictive, selfish, violent, and cruel.

      2) Tony has unique mannerisms that are fascinating. His speach pattern is rapid fire, with gulping breaths and quick-quick sentences strung together. His written nonsequiters are more vivid in the verbal; you can see how he's making connections that make sense only to him.

      3) Tony has a high pitched, nasal voice. While it MAY be offputting to some, it's distinctive and charming, in it's own way. It gives him a boyish quality.

      4) Tony has a nice smile. He looks shy, or sometimes clever, when he smiles.

      None of that comes through in his writing. Honestly, I think he would attract a MUCH wider viewership, with people being introduced to Autism Spectrum Disorder, and people learning what it's like for someone trying to survive in a very difficult world with that burden.

      I think Tony could easily increase his take to $500.00 plus per month, which would be a huge net gain for him. It would basically cover about 2/3 of his monthly nut, in addition to being a voice for a group that doesn't have much voice.

  38. Tony, you need to set up another Adsense account using another name. Whether it's your mom, son, SeattleIrish, vook Peter (guy who paid for your ticket from AC to Vegas), Josie, whomever. This shouldn't be too hard to do, but you should definitely do it considering you could really use the $100-$300/monthly income you were making.

    Perhaps even Vince could help you with this. Many people who have had their Adsense accounts banned were able to start earning that income again simply by opening a new account under a different name of a person they wholly trust.

    1. have NO interest in a video blog, nor in reestablishing google thru someone else, u see id have to change the webpage, and that would not be good. i dont people to see me with a new address. they certainly arent gonna reopen one with the same address just because its in a different name.

  39. Definitely agree with S.I. here.

    Almost everyone preders vlogs over blogs. And TBC could definitely generate a huge amount of views considering people are generally going to be very much intrigued the things he has to say. He doesn't write well at all, with his terrible grammar and his inability to properly formulate sentences. Oh, and the non-sequiturs - THE WORST.

    At the very least you need to get an Adsense account back up and running using someone else's name from whom you trust. Whether it be your mother, son, Vince, S.I., Vook, Josie, whomever - You can definitely get an account back up and earning a small income again, which you are obviously hurtin' for ATM.

    1. I think you will find that Tony is banned from Binions forever after his last episode there. He had heaps of warnings from security, and from some of his friends about his behaviour there, but as usual if fell on deaf ears when he went on one of his tirades. He was frog marched out of Binions by Security, taken over to their sister casino 4 Queens where he was staying with comps, ordered to back his bags and check out and not to return.

      Tony's available choices of casinos and card rooms are very limited now in Las Vegas. He is banned from all Harrahs and MGM casinos, and probably a couple of isolated ones which include The Plaza, Vegas Club, and El Cortez.

    2. The episode that Koala described and had witnessed was preceeded (maybe like 7-10 days prior) with a fake rant post about what Tony had told his Binion's slot host or some other Binion's Mgt person that was way, way over the top in terms of obnoxiousness and inappropriateness. If these previous Binion's episodes were vlogs I think the number of views would have been astronomical. While vlogs with questions about how to kill roaches not so much....

    3. Thanks Koala.... I really wanted to stake tony in a full tournament series with reasonable buy ins..... I guess I could offer a 3k stake for the grand series at golden nugget

    4. If this is the same Jay Cool from AVP I wouldn't be holdin my breath waiting for that stake.

    5. This is the same Jay Cooley! I have an immaculate staking record and I'm willing to share pieces of myself in the bunions classic events with 2.5% mark up.... Anyone needing a reference talk to Tatude he will vouch for me

      Delete
    6. That's hilarious. I can vouch for the fact that you take people's stake money, never play the event then refuse to refund the stake lol. Probably not really u but if it is I wouldn't use me or a few others as a reference. Still waiting for you to refund the money haha. Good luck Jay. People don't forget.

  42. Tony-
    First of all, I haven't seen a post about any hand histories. I'm still looking for it, in fact. I just see complaints about how you lost money raising stupid hands due to some stupid promotion. Not quite sure whether you lost your mind on how to play the game, but whatever...

    Anyway, I'm going to offer you something that I haven't for anyone else. I'd like to offer you a small, meager bankroll on the online site I'm currently playing. Go ahead & sign up an account through my blog link, but once you do so, I will ship you 200 chips, which is the max buy in for the lowest level cash games. If you're smart, you'll take those 200 chips and divide it into 5 min buy ins to the game... sit there & nut peddle until doubling up and cashing out, but it remains to be seen whether you're smart and can keep away from tilt.

    Let me know if you're interested. The link for the sign up, in case you forgot my blog, is:

    1. will get taken care of later, walking out the door now. need to update blog too, with news of me lightning and pokerjohnny playing at samstown, and then me and lightning playing NL at the strat. down in the 1700s again, ended up losing $61 yesterday, but no machines of course being with him all night. im not sure, but didnt sickcallmggee say once a bitcoin was 1000 chips meaning this is only about 1.5th of a coin?

      Delete
    2. Will the details of you "being with [Lightning] all night" be on your blog or his? Sounds scandalous.

      Delete
  43. Yes. I'm offering you 200 chips, which is the equivalent to 2/10 or 1/5 of a bitcoin, worth about $4 at current rates. That will allow you 5 min buy ins to the lowest stakes cash game, 1/2 - 40/200, or SNGs or MTTs. No strings attached with the exception that you sign on under my affiliate link.

    Your choice. Send me an email with your screen name when you do so - you can get my email from my website - and I'll credit your account.

  45. Since the police "have committed a lot of unjustified murders of unarmed people in vegas" please post a link or two....I cannot find any.

    In one breath you want this chick to forgive you, and in literally the next paragraph you think she should be charged with attempted murder. Sensible. Logical. And you wonder why you can't trap people at a 1-2 table.

  46. Hey Tony, I'll be back in Vegas during March Madness again, if you are around I have a buy one get one at the coney dog at The D, you can have the free one. I was going to offer dinner at Binion's Steakhouse with my comps but it looks like you can't go there. Bummer. But if you get unbanned, dinner at ghe top of Binion's is on me.

  47. Tony:

    What do you think of the vblog (or is that "vlog"?) idea? I'm almost certain someone would help with the tech side, at least as far as expertise. If your camera doesn't do video, or your computer doesn't (?), I bet we can solve that too.

    I think it would REALLY drive reader/viewership.

    What say you, Tony BigCharles?

    p.s. - if you really want to drive viewership, make your first video explaining the two decade old sex with guys comment!
