When lightning dropped me off at home tonight, i went and paid the rent, and checked to see if moms package ever showed up, (it hadnt). This is about the lowest ive been after paying the rent since i moved in about 6 weeks ago. down to $1600.
yeah, things have not been good. guess we shouldve stayed at samstown where i was winning over $200 once, and left the poker room while still up $132. at least with lightning around ive not been playing any machines. That $1100 ive lost since returning to vegas on machines in the last 2 months would do wonders for my roll about now. Instead of me coming home with the profit, we went over to the stratosphere for the 2nd day in a row, and i do worse in that poker room than i do in any other poker room, almost all of my losing sessions are in there. again i lost $139, just like the $50 i lost last night in the strat. i really should not listen to others advice who say to play it, and leave it alone til i have the bankroll. i cannot figure out why i do so much worse in the strat than in other rooms. lightning too lost heavily but on a flop/turn of 8866 when a young asian whose been winning check raises his $35 bet to $70, he shouldnt shove allin with 10 10 for over $100 more. of course the asian guy insta calls with his full boat.
and my own hand history here isnt much better. yesterday i lost shoving my AQ suited short stacked into lightnings AK suited. ive not seen lightning raise preflop once this whole trip with less than JJ. (ak suited is NOT lower than JJ). i was getting tired and i thought i should shove more liberally when low stacked.
anyway tonight, ive got about $45 in front of me and a lot of people limp in and im in the small blind with AQ clubs. i made it $16 so as not to play out of position against a ton of callers. (i think that was an err?) a guy went allin for $51, and im the idiot who calls, he has Kk and wins. maybe that was mistake 2? and there is todays hand history.
i should recover a little over $100 in the sunday feb 10 freeroll at samstown, they usually chop it up early. and i guess ill play there on my birthday, dont know of any special birthday promos anywhere anymore.
i was telling lightning how uncomfortable i felt walking thru that stratosphere garage late at night, and he says i worry too much about things that will never happen, then i hear there was a shooting at the MGM mirage garage from AKgal on twitter.
