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.

    1. lol. thought the same thing when i read it. JJ+ then AK. I'd expect someone who is also a hyperturbo EXPERT to know this.

      either way, AQ against an old NIT like lightning who is raising is bad. On the other hand AQ against me might be the nuts. Hi Lightning!

  3. Lightning has no heart, taking your money like that!

    4. You're welcome, Tony. You did mention something about kitchen towels in this blog a while back and I had a couple left from my visit to Australia. Thought you might like an extra one for your kitchen. You do know that Australia is often called "The Lucky Country", don't you? Maybe the tea towel will bring you luck! When you get your roll up to $50000 or so, maybe you can visit my favourite casino, Melbourne's Crown Casino. I have a lot of money invested in it. A helluva lot. Hope to see you in Vegas this summer, if I go with lightning.

    5. Aw, shucks. I'm blushing. I miss reading about you and your much younger sister on your blog.

  4. Tony, you get a Free grand slam breakfast at Denny's on your birthday and also free Firehouse sub. Both are good.

    Assuming you have valid ID to show them.

  5. So I'm not seeing any analysis here of the hand history. All I see is start and end result. The key to a good hand history analysis is picking through the parts you or someone else did wrong.

    " 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."
    >> Is this a mistake? Why? How was the action prior to the flop? How loose was this "young asian?" What prompted Lightning to shove over? Perhaps at this point, Lightning is beating overcard bluffs (less likely due to the paired board), Ax bluffs figuring on a chop pot), and 99. He's losing to JJ+, 8x, 6x. Did he / you consider that before overshoving? I have to believe at that point in the hand, that 8x, 6x are strong possibilities... I'd love to see your write up and opinion as to "why."

    "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."
    >> Shoving AQ into a guy who, in your words, has not raised PF once this whole trip with less than JJ, is in your mind a profitable move? So what is his range here? AK, JJ, QQ, KK, AA. JJ has roughly 50/50 equity with AQ. All the rest are crushing AQ. Why do you think shoving AQ here is profitable?

  6. Tony are you going to accept my stake offer for GN grand series. You know me and Tatude knows I'm the real deal.

    1. Jay you must have missed my last post. I know that you take stake money, don't play the event and don't return the money. You did that to a few people so I don't think I'm a good reference assuming this is really you. Not sure what you're thinking or trying to do here but precedes you.

    2. Probably but that was his last name. It would take a lot of nerve asking me to vouch for him lol. If it is a fake he needs a hobby.

  7. Tony, turns out that shooting was not in the MGM garage, but in the UA movie theater just up the street from MGM.

    I don't know what movie they were watching, but I guess it was really, really bad.

    1. lol...

      I'm pretty sure this was the only shooting that occurred yesterday in the U.S. Prob why Grump is moving to NC.

      This is kind of like Tony's hand analysis. An event occurred so now it might occur again. No details on what, why, likelihood, etc. could easily be a domestic violence incident. oh wait... nevermind.

    1. I guess comedy is your new gig. Sorry Jay I don't owe you any money actually the other way around but I could care less at this point. You do owe Dave a couple hundred also. Ill let him know u are back. You should make things right with him.

      Can't figue out your real motive here but I won't be playing any poker with you. I'm sure you are a much better player and I really have nothing to prove to anyone. You should really make things right with Dave and own what you really did then maybe you may get back some credibility. Have fun playing in the sandbox here. As I recall you didn't have good things to say about Tony so not sure why you're even on his blog. Have fun.

    1. I shall speak to mrs lightning to see if he could possibly move out to Las Vegas permanently to aid you in your gallant quest to stay off the machines.

  11. ya was fking around with J4 utg, tony bumped it, loose calling station called as did i. check called J high flop to tonys short stack all in and scammed a third jack on river to crack tonys ppAA. had already decided i was just playin tonight and wouldnt have minded given tony some chips. he actually played pretty ideal shortstack and was in ahead when he lost for the most part...the issue is that buying in at $50, you get to make some weighted flips in your favor, but the variance is gonna be alot higher that trying to control things with a deep stack as i prefer. hypothetically those flips should net positive, certainly better odds than machines, min stacking is just very volatile by nature.

  12. Tony, you probably wouldn't feel so stressed out if you got a bigger bankroll.

    So, you should get a bigger bankroll.

  13. Did lightning get tired of you texting him all the time and break your fingers? Has he robbed you yet? Why in the world do you need donkeytax to post a hand history for you?

    I'll go out on a limb and say it was the need to SLEEP IMMEDIATELY but how long would it have taken you to post something like:

    "raised a bunch and some tight old man made it 40 and i was tired and didnt want to get outplayed after the flop so i shoved with AK and he had aces and i told him he better hope i didnt catch his mother in the parking garage and he said his mother had been dead 30 years."

    15 seconds to type that up? Maybe a minute if you hunt and peck?

    Most poker pros are willing to invest a minute of time in posting hand histories to improve their games.
