Talked with Tmobile today, paypal, changed some email addresses and im quite glad i did

been worried about lots of things since dropping the $2200 down to $1300 although im feeling somewhat more secure now being back in the $1600s. Been following the chart to the letter and not doing any martingaling and always making sure i have enough money for my bets. (since the drop to $1300 that is). i've been feeling bad for feeling like ive disppointed Andy by using poor judgement a few times with his money. And i dont like doing that, for if it wasnt for him, and the food he sent, id be in far less shape today. am finally feeling like i might have a chance to make it after all since about $300 has finally came back, some of it from seals. my bank got the $43 this morning that id converted to bitcoin, and im also back to over 750 chips on seals.

Have also created some new email accounts for some important things and of course Byran micon said in his email id be wise to use a new seals acct and not tell anyone the new name, because they really cant ban anyone due to the nature of the site. where u dont even need an email to play on it. and of course they allow anyone to chat there, broke or not. explained how if someone gets banned they just make a new acct anyway so it is pointless. also Krill cannot be transferred, so i transferred my chips to my new account, and am still logging in on the old account but only for the 500 krill freerolls. have played in 2 so far once i learned the correct starting times for the freeroll. next one is at 6am friday, they are every 50 hours apart. and i made the money in both. now tonight mc gee criticized my play while watching.

im in the krill freeroll, and a lot of players are sitting out. i have the perfect seat position on the 3 out of 9 of us who are playing. the other 6 are sitting out, and all 3 of us have seats next to each other, and i have position EVERY TIME almost. i was moved there from another table, and i have about 3000 in chips, another guy has like 2500, and the guy in the middle has like 14000 and is shoving every single hand without fail. every time the other guy folds, he shoves, and of course wins the sitting out money uncontested. and of course, i kept getting nothing but junk

so finally i get AT off, call his shove and am 60-40 favorite and double up and now have like 4500. im not sure how soon thereafter, but i get dealt KQ hearts. and he shoves. now i know if i can get enough chips to bust him, i will win every pot uncontested about (depends on if they move a new active player to his seat or not) the 3rd guy kept folding all the time, being in such a terrible seat disadvantage. and i cannot understand why mc gee says its a bad call, seeing the guy always shoves any 2. chances are im dominating him massively. i call and of course win the hand. now ive got him covered, and eventually i busted him. went on to take 3rd for 65 chips. theres about 100 players or so in the freeroll

maybe in live action its a bad call. but think of the edge i gain if he just gets busted out, although i cant on that hand. im almost guaranteed to win if hes gone.

and i called tmobile, since my phone was getting texts its past due, for the purpose of suspending my phone service and to see how much id still owe of my $90 bill. i was thinking id only owe for like 1 3rd of the bill. turns out thats NOT true, ive been paying a month later each month for the previous month instead of for the following month like i thought. so id owe for over a month instead of a small part of a month. wasnt happy to hear that.

but heres the good news, which really surprised me. she told me id had an excellent payment history with tmobile, which is true since my bill had always been paid on time by auto debit on my bank and said that because of that excellent payment history they could allow me to make small payments and not have to suspend service just yet. so i paid them $20 today over the phone, and will pay another $20 a month from today, but of course ill owe a lot more so ill be running up quite a balance, but my phone will still be on until the balance is too large. i think theyd have preferred i offered more than $20 a month, but they took it. so yes, i am really glad i called him. and thanks to bigshow5404 for having suggested the idea to begin with, and i wish id called a lot sooner. not sure whatever became of him, i think he might be frostystinkmitt or maybe not, maybe the troll is using that acct, who knows? i really cant figure out which guy he is. suspect a ton of people, and 95% of them arent him. but how am i to know who he is?

need petepeters to file a harrassment suit. he's commiting a lot of criminal acts by placing them phony craigslist ads with my yahoo address saying to send paypal money. of course ive explained the whole story to paypal and they say not to worry, but suggest i just get not only a new email for paypal (which i did) but also a new email entirely, which wouldnt work out so well and be way too much hassle. also have attached my cell to my paypal to get notifications and to verify whose really me.

though ive got very little in comps and wasting way too much time on seals (since its far more profitable for me per hour) ive still got some food in the room, thanks to stack stopping at the grocery store. had i been thinking clear id have asked him to come much earlier so we could visit a laundry also. im out of shirts again.

now about that stake with snevman. snevman somehow was worried i might not show, no idea why he felt this way. we dont like to use texts because him living in belgium runs up my bill, especially a phone call. so he had sent an email saying if i wasnt there at 6.01 he would leave now mind u the tourny isnt til 7pm, but we were going to eat first. only thing is, that email was sent BEFORE stack had offered to take me, when he thought i was possibly going to come with seattle irish. so once stack and him had talked by email i figured i was safe since he would then be 100% certain id show up.

stack had emailed him promising hed bring me just that morning. and stack and i were pulling into the parking garage at the riv at 5.55pm on my phone, and then walked inside. got to the poker room just a few min after 6, and i hadnt tried to call or text being its a belgium number, and i thought if anything was amiss hed tell me. Joe was working the riviera that night, and told us he had just left right at 6.01, not more than a couple minutes earlier. dont see how we didnt miss seeing him walking to the garage, maybe he parked in valet underneath the riv instead. so it barely being 6.05pm, i called him, and he said he was in his car driving down paradse road, and refused to come back, and when i tried to let stack talk to him he didnt want to talk to stack and hung up. so stack felt bad for me, and since no one was showing up for the 7pm riv tourny anyway, he took me to the stratosphere and bought us both in since he didnt want to see me miss out, and besides theres a lot more people in that tourney. i didnt money, came in like 25th about, but he got 4th and still made a profit after both our buyins. he also was very nice about letting me play the cash game with $60 while he was still in the tourny, and i lost $9 of it. he was the one who offered, not me. i didnt suggest it. also we went in mcdonalds in circus got a couple small items and i showed him the VBJ.

nice to see grump is back to posting his blog, wish carmen would too. i thought wed lost both of them forever. and my balance will go down soon, not up, the internet bill MUST be paid and today is the day it becomes due or is that past due? also i had overage again so i owe $90 instead of $80

  1. Well... Let's try a pop quiz, Tony. According to Mr. Mgee, villain wasn't shoving ATC. So let's give him a range. Say 50% of hands which looks something like:

    22+,A2s+,K2s+,Q2s+,J4s+,T6s+,96s+,86s+,76s,65s,A2o+,K5o+,Q7o+,J7o+,T8o+,98o

    You assert above that: "chances are im dominating him massively. i call and of course win the hand."

    1. How "massively" are you dominating that range?

    2. How "massively" are you dominating ATC?

    3. Based on 1 and 2, how do you conclude that you "of course" win the hand?

  2. How much longer do you have on your Internet and phone contracts?

    And nice work on finally calling to inquire about suspending your service. Just because you haven't heard of something someone suggests you do, doesn't mean they're wrong.

    And who I am is not important, but I assure you that I'm clearly not the troll you're worried about. I check this blog once a day to see what's new in your world, and lurked RTP when you stopped posting here, but that's as far as my interest goes.

    2. I guess at the end of the day you can't judge a book by its cover now can you??

      Another thing that's worked for me in the past with a cell company was asking for a rate reduction to prevent me from cancelling. I have a data plan on my iPad and I barely use it and called in and mentioned paying the buyout to cancel it and instead the lady on the phone took 20% off my bill for the duration of the contract. Worth a shot for your modem.

  3. Why don't you just give the guy his 13 bucks or whatever and see if he leaves you alone after that. If he doesn't then you can figure out who he is by tracing the payment and sue him.

    1. because im sure i dont owe him $13 and this was only something he read about. i wouldnt ever play intentonally bad, and who can stake someone, get 50% of them if they win, and still get the money back if they dont? thats not how staking works, ask wec. hes got no proof he owns whatever stars acct mightve staked me. nor any documented proof of giving a stake. i cant picture him ever giving anyone money.

      Delete
    2. That may be the case, but it's probably worth the $13 to get the guy off your back. If he's doing things like mailing you nasty stuff and committing fraud to try to get you in trouble, who knows if he'll do something like physically harm you. The guy seems like a psycho and for some reason he's hell bent on the idea that you owe him money, and it's such a small amount of money anyway.

      Delete
    3. omerta offered him the $13 on roughing the punter and he never replied.

    4. i'm pretty sure he got banned on RTP. Someone mentioned that + I haven't see any nasty posts from him recently

    5. if u look at the profile of "welfare" he is banned. of course that dont mean he dont have an account there. i have multiple accounts on seals now, and am up to 971 chips.

    6. Maybe you can just publicly ask him if there is anything you can do to get him to stop his actions. Maybe nothing you can do but asking wouldn't hurt

    7. WEC--did the policy of sanctions stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon? did Winston Churchhills policy of appeasement stop Hitler from attacking Britain in 1940?

      how is this situation any different?

      Delete
    8. He's doing it because he enjoys the attention and gets satisfaction from you guys talking about him and Tony stating how much it bothers him.

      Stop publicly acknowledging his efforts and it might stop. His incentive is proof that his efforts are working to piss you off.

      Delete
    9. This situation's completely different... The guy's only harassing you because he thinks you owe him money (not saying you do, but he THINKS you do). If you no longer owe him money (in his mind) then logically he has no reason to bug you anymore. 13 bucks is a hell of a lot cheaper then what any lawyer would cost to even hear your case.

      Delete
    10. i am of the opinion he does NOT think i owe him the money, he is just using an excuse to try and blackmail me. who would think i owe him the money back even if he did stake me? people know they cant freeroll off someone taking half if they win and getting it all back if they lose. i dont think he staked me, and if he didnt stake me, he knows damn good and well i dont owe him anything.

      so when he was in vegas once and seen me at a table and though i smelled bad, why didnt he bring up the subject then? if he mentioned it then, when i was far better off financially, and didnt show animosity, id have probably been so glad to meet a reader and i know if id really not played my best id felt bad, so being such a small amount, id probably have it to him or at least offered to settle for half.

    11. also appmat i dont trust u entirely either, u could be working together. dont forget u too called me a bum and made me make a long busride for nothing to pick up a phony stake.

    12. Yeah man, I'm totally working with some guy to scam you out of $13. Split 2 ways that'd be a whole $6.50!

      And nobody in their right mind goes to these lengths (assuming everything you said about him's been true so far) to blackmail someone for $13!

      And I didn't call you a bum. My girlfriend did.

    13. "WEC--did the policy of sanctions stop Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon? did Winston Churchhills policy of appeasement stop Hitler from attacking Britain in 1940?

      how is this situation any different?"

      A) Sanctions are not the same as appeasement. Sanctions are punishments put in place to deter behavior.

      B) Iran DOES NOT have a nulear weapon. So...the answer to your question MAY be "yes, sanctions have stopped Iran form having a nuke, as sancitons are in place and they do not have such a weapon." Also, keep in mind that the US engaged in industrial sabotage to significantly delay much of their development capability.

      C) Churchill DID NOT have a policy of appeasement towards Germany. That was Neville Chamberlain's policy. Chamberlain was, like you, a conservative. Churchill didn't assume power until after WWII had begun.

      D) Perhaps you meant this in the vein of, "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"????

      s.i.

    14. Not quite sure what all the Worlds politics and WWII References have to do with Tony asking his 'friend' what it would take to make him end his actions against Tony.

      Just a simple enough thing to do that probably will do nothing, but since it takes 2 seconds, nothing lost if nothing positive comes from it. Not gonna make the person any madder

  4. because mc Gee was full of shit and he only saw a few hands. primarily the one he saw was the one the guy folds, and i noticed he had timed out, mc gee probably didnt. this can all be proven if i had a big enough wager to bother with trying to get the hand history which i dont think i can get. he folded once in about 30 hands, and shoved the other 29 i was at that table. mc gee only seen about 10 hands, of which he saw 9 shoves, if that many hands. sometimes he didnt need to shove all the players folded to him on his BB, those dont count.

    Here's a free tip: real poker players save their hand histories so they can analyse them and improve.

  7. Tony this has nothing to do with a poker stake. This guy goes back to the AVP/VPN days and never brought this up before. He's just trying to make you look bad and tilt you. He's just a pathetic fucking nobody. He has committed identity theft and scammed enough people out of money that they may actually go after him. It won't be hard to track him down and the douche even admits doing it on the web. Brilliant move dickhead.

  8. Good new Tony. One of the guys this idiot sold fake Yankees tickets to works for NYPD. Brilliant move lol. He sent me an email and isn't too happy. He's gonna turn it over to their unit that handles identity theft and Internet fraud. Dumbass should have stuck to sending piss in the mail. It's just a matter of time before he hears a knock on his door. Guy had bought the tickets for his kid.

    1. in case anyone is wondering how u got involved, the guy had sent me an email wondering why he hadnt received the tickets. i explained the situation and told him the transaction was being reversed by paypal and should soon be back in his acct. he gave me his phone in the email, asking me to call him, and me being paranoid, i was afraid it might be a trick, and im not sure how to block a number. so i asked tatude if he would contact the guy for me. i wasnt sure if he wasnt actually a friend of the guy just out to file a complaint on his behalf. turns out im glad i asked tatude if he would find out the story for me, since i didnt want to take the chance of calling him.

  9. Tony,

    For your readers, below is an excerpt of my email to you. Not sure why you can't understand my reason for departing, you are not the most reliable person in the world.

    Good luck,

    Snevman

    So we both understand: You are guaranteeing you will be at the Riviera at 6pm on Monday. We will eat, my treat, then play the tourney. I will buy dinner for you and one person that transports you. Additionally, I will buy you, and whomever drives you in, entry to the 7 pm tournament and if either, or both, of you cash, you will split any winnings, minus buy in, with me 50/50. (Ex: $60 buy in, you cash for $300, i get the buy in, $60, plus half of the remaining $240. $120 for you and $120 for me).

    ATTTENTION! 6:01 pm is late and I will be gone. There are many good cash games around that I would rather play, but I am trying to help you out, don't make me regret this decision.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. yes i got this email. but what snevman leaves out, is we were at the riv before 6, just hadnt quite reached the poker room. and also this email was sent back when i was still trying to get seattle irish to take me. once snevman and stack talked, and stack had reassured him a few hours before 6pm he would have me there, he had to know i was coming. most wouldve sent a text saying theyre leaving so i have a chance to first say, hey im walking out of the parking garage into the casino.

      Delete
    2. I guess the lesson learned here is when someone is handing you $60 + Free Dinner you get there well before the time he stated and not running to get there so everyone has to have a hurried dinner to make the tourny.

      Delete
    3. Tony,

      Your track record on timeliness is not good. Although I did communicate with Stack, his arrival on time was predicated on picking you up; again requiring you to be ready.

      I am sorry that we were unable to meet up, but you were aware of the conditions of my offer far in advance.

      Good luck,

      Snevman

      Delete
    4. LOL. How can you suck so much you lose out on a stake?

      Delete
    5. Irrelevant. He said be there by 6pm. Obv he means in the poker room not somewhere else. It's pretty clear. You do realize he went out of his way to do you a favor and you couldn't meet the terms?

      This isn't his fault. It is your responsibility to be there on time. You are the one who should've sent a text saying you're running late

      Delete
    6. Tony, most people who were getting a damn nice sweetheart deal -- dinner, tourney entry, generous split of winnings -- would never have been late. So it sounds like you might have had little or no control over getting there late. But if by chance I or most would be running late, we definitely would have texted the generous benefactor to let him know we were already at the casino.

      Delete
    7. Very inconsiderate of Riviera, didn't they know they are supposed to announce your presence as soon as you step foot on their property? And why didn't snevman used his x-ray vision, he should have seen through the building and knew that you were on Riviera's property.

      Or... you could have planned to arrive 5 minutes earlier, and got your steak and stake.

      Delete
    8. Tony:

      Focus on learning from this experience. Use this as a rule from now on:

      When someone is willing to stake you 3% of your life role, care enough about getting that stake to ensure you're not relying on assumptions and "just-in-the-nick-of-times" arrival times. Care enough to clarify. Care enough to ensure there's no change a miscommunication could lead things astray.

      If you show you care at lesat that much, people might be inclined to believe you would show that same amount of care in your play and work hard as a horse.

      Your past behavior does not indicate that level of care.

      s.i.

      Delete
    9. Ok. I'm just not getting it. Are we talkin a few minutes late? I'm sorry but that's pretty unreasonable especially considering traffic etc. A minute it two isn't gonna kill anyone. Yes shoulda been there a bit early but anyone's who's driven in Vegas knows traffic is very unpredictable. If I'm meeting someone I don't storm off if they are a couple of minutes late. Just seems a little much regardless if you are doing someone a favor. Anytime I've met Tony he's been on time, I've actually been a bit late on occasion. I guess I just don't know people who expect you to be right on the minute when meeting them and can't give a few minutes leeway. Not trying to pick a fight just seemed excessive

      Delete
    10. In Europe there is a distinction between being late and being too late. What in America is regarded as reasonable leeway in Europe is regarded as plain rude.

      Delete
    11. The terms were made quite clear ahead of time and I would say he clearly intended to stick to his word and teach tony a lesson in accountability.

      If you want something bad enough in life, you do it. If someone says to be somewhere by 6:00, you show up by 5:50 just to be safe.

      Delete
    12. Well this is America dammit lol. Interesting. Could explain things a bit. Trying to get from Jean thru rush hour traffic I'm sure wasn't fun. I would give anyone a five minute window at least especially for something like that, but that's me. It was nice of Stack to step up and cover the meal and stake as well as the ride. Wasn't taking a shot at anyone I just never had someone tell me if I'm a minute or two late they'll bounce. I'm punctual and wouldn't wait arour 10-15 for someone unless inward from them but a couple of minute doesn't seem that big of a deal. Looks like it worked out anyway.

      Delete

    13. would you be a couple minutes late to a job interview?

      Ok.. that's a slight stretch as a comparison.

      would you be a couple minutes late to a meeting where someone specifically warned in advance NOT to be late?

      if something happened that caused you to be late would you notify that person?

      that's the gist here.

      I have four kids... there are times to be harsh and times to discipline. Maybe this is harsh, but when it comes to discipline you need to be consisent. He said in his email he was leaving at 6:01pm. He left. You must be consistent with your discipline. You can't state something like that and then bend the rules for no reason (Tony didn't notify him).

      i think it would be very different had he not outlined it in advance via email... then it would be unecessarily harsh.

      there's a pattern here... We can all still cheer/help/encourage/love the guy but we still have to help him maintain some discipline. Unless we think he isn't capable. I don't believe that. He's more than capable of displaying manners and he certainly needs help with discipline.

      Was it Tony's fault or Snevman's? Did Tony make it out to be Snevman's fault? Did it seem that way till we heard the whole story?

      And yes, I screw up also. Much bigger than this sometimes (prob often). But I own up to it and try to learn from it. I think tony is capable of that.

      Delete
    14. Tatude,

      If he is not there at the prescribed time, how long would you think is reasonable to wait, even if you told him days in advance you were not waiting a minute longer? If I wait ten minutes and he still hasn't arrived, I have wasted ten minutes of my time. When he is not there as agreed I don't know if he is going to be a few minutes late or a no show.

      I made it very clear that I was leaving at 6:01 pm. It is incumbent on him to account for traffic conditions to ensure that he arrives in a timely manner. If I can get there on time, why should he not be held to the same standard.

      I firmly believe that it is on Tony to be there on time, not my responsibility to wait for him.

      We will just have to agree to disagree on this one.

      Good luck,

      Snevman

    15. ive never of course, not showed up when getting a stake. Rushed really hard on a bike once to drive an hour across town to the orleans for a stake from Grump once in time. yeah id got snevmans email but i thought that was before he knew i now had a bonfide ride and a commitment to be there, and at first had said that because he wasnt sure if i had a lift, remember he sent that at the time i was asking seattle irish. so i assumed once stack assured him we were coming it no longer applied, and i also thought we were arriving in time.

      i also thought he would text me before leaving. theres no charge for him to text me, but since its a belgium phone, i got charged 20c each whenever i texted him in the past.

      it was nice of him to reimburse stack, i knew nothing about that.

      the real issue that surprised me and Stack wasnt him leaving, it was him, when he was getting in his car and driving out of the parking lot onto paradise road behind the riviera, refusing to turn back around, repark the car and come inside and instead say that no hes going elsewhere to play cash and hang up the phone on us, and continue to drive away when i told him we are here. the meal was going to be ate in the food court, so it wouldve taken very little time. i just wish wed have arranged to be there by 6.15, that wouldve still gave us plenty of time, and id not been late.

      Delete
    16. Wow. Didn't mean to stir things up so much just offered up an opinion. Wasn't personal BTW. I just don't know anyone who would expect someone to arrive at a certain time and only have a one minute window especially if someone is traveling during rush hour. This has nothing to do with Tony per se. If someone told me that I wouldn't even come and I certainly don't hold anyone to that. If someone was 10-15 minutes late and hadn't contacted me I might leave but a few minutes I feel is acceptable in the real world. That's just my opinion on the matter. I'm sure everyone else is never ever late even by a minute in their personal lives and never run into traffic or unexpected delays. I do. Like I said it wasn't an attack on anyone just stating my opinion like others. It's just a different one :). I'm a punctual person and hate when people are late just have different standards. I guess

      Delete
    17. And Vook while I am very punctual I have been a few minutes late on occasion. It's the real world and shit happens. Maybe we are more laid back in Cali but I wouldn't even sweat someone being 5 minutes late. I wouldn't text someone if I was running a few minutes late. That's just my personal standards not saying anything is wrong with others opinions. I don't hold others to a higher standard than myself and if everyone has never been late for anything that's great. It's happened to me on a rare occasion. Anyway nothing was meant as a personal attack on anyone, just sharing my opinion. Yes it's important to be on time. Sometimes stuff happens especially if you're dealing with traffic. I gotta go now I'm late for an appointment :). Take care

      Delete
    18. ha... yeah. I mean nothing wrong with what you said.

      it's got more to do with being somewhere to do someone a favor. When I'm in Vegas I have so little time I can never do everything I'd like or meet up with everyone i want.

      I will point out that Tony purposefully adjusted his sleep schedule to meet up with me when I visited the last time... so I think he gets it and tries.

      It's just that when something doesn't go perfectly his way he lashes out at people and often jumps to conclusions and says nasty things. Could be his paranoia... don't know.

      I think he's absolved himself somehwat with his explanations here.

      We can prob move on...

      last word ;)

      CHEERS!

  10. Tony,

    I forgot to tell you that Yappy Dave is in town. I have been playing with him and The OD recently. If you are coming into town you should stop by and say hello to them.

  11. Any IP addresses you have from message boards or any other sources (even if the person admitted to it, they can always say they were just joking) are more or less useless.

    But any IP address they get from the fake ad postings will be a DIRECT tie to the person who did it.

    But I wouldn't get your hopes up on him getting jailtime though. It sounds like he didn't make off with any of the money if paypal reversed all the transactions. There's tons of *actual* scammers on craigslist who do successfully steal money from people...

  12. The guy saved the Craigslist listing so we will see. While its unlikely something will happen he did scam a lot of people temporarily out of money using someone else's ID. I'm sure there are more important things to deal with but this wasn't a one time deal. I just saw a news story where they arrested a guy for selling fake playoff tickets on Craigslist. Was pretty easy to track him down. Time will tell and while he probably wouldn't do time it's a pretty stupid thing to do. Not worth the risk of a felony arrest on your record. Since one of his victims is in law enforcement there may actually be follow up done. The idiot admitted to doing it when it wasn't even common knowledge that it was happening. Kinda like when he admitted sending the piss. Not too bright. It will be up to the people who had their money taken and Tony who's identity was taken to follow up on it. I just tried to help him communicate with someone who had bought fake tickets.

    These other folks bought tickets,made plans and had their money tied up based on a scam. I know I would follow up on the matter.

    1. Yeah, but trying to use forum posts as evidence is kind of like trying to use photographs of something as evidence instead of using the actual evidence.

      The mailed piss one might actually have had something done about it, especially if there's fingerprints on it they can match to someone with a prior record, but without evidence there's no crime.

    2. Oh yeah, unless you are super mario brothers hacker man, if LEO gets involved they can track your IP, VPN other ways to hide your identity in two seconds.

    3. Fingerprinting a package in the mail? LOLLLL if it was fingerprintable in the first place do you know how many people would've touched the package?

      Delete
    4. fingerprinting the contents INSIDE the mail dude...

      presumably if someone pissed in a bag and mailed it they would have to touch the bag right? At the minimum there'd be some DNA evidence in the piss...

    5. You watch way too much CSI. I hope you're trolling.

  13. btw man, you gotta stop posting shit like that fags comment on your twitter.

    That's probably one reason you have people harassing you. At the minimum keep that shit to your blog. That's a pretty harassing thing to do to be tweeting people that kind of shit. Or if you really want to put it at twitter, don't make it @ someone, so at least it's only your followers who see it. Nothing good's going to come out of tweeting random people anti-gay statements.

    1. Not to mention he doesn't know what flagging a can is.

    2. Tony: Did you SERIOUSLY think the cab driver got pulled over for putting an American flag on his cab? Do you not think he could have been saying that he picked someone up flagging a cab on the street - which you cannot do in Las Vegas?

      I guess you'll use any excuse to sling some anti-gay hate speech, to make people think you're a total bigot.

    4. Classic TBC. Spewing prejudice while misunderstanding the context of the post that lead to his bigotry.

      Tony, you don't need to respond to everything. Sometimes, the best course is to just keep quiet.

  15. I haven't stepped in the Riviera in 4 years and could have told you there was 100% chance this tourney was going to get zero runners on a Monday. Tony, how could you have not known this?

    2. that's what I'm saying. it never occured to you to tell the guy he was wasting his time. You went down to the Strat and played a tourney with similar buy in that always gets 40 players with a bad turnout. At least it used to. if you told him that I'm sure he would have believed you and rather gone there.

  16. To add to my previous comment I would estimate 35% of the listed daily Vegas tourneys don't go on any given day. I would suggest anyone visiting from out of town look on the Bravo app. With the exception of M Resort and maybe Sam's Town if the room doesn't have 3 or more cash games going at all times their tourney's are not something you can depend on.

    1. theres also some casinos that have ONLY tournies and hardly ever a cash game. think of the old fitzgerald, and also the poker palace except weekends.

  17. It is not fair to blame Tony for being late to the Riviera in this instance. If anyone is at fault it really is myself. In fact I was early getting into Jean and Tony came down and met me early. We actually were also early getting on the road back to Vegas. Where it got off schedule slightly, is the fact we were running so ahead of time we left the highway in South Vegas to go to a Food4less, as Tony was out of food.
    Now if I had known we were working to a strict time deadline as Tony had clearly agreed with Snevman, I could have hurried proceedings along and avoided the discussions Tony struck up with me on food inflation over the last ten years, the outrageous price of canned tuna etc
    In the end we were 5 minutes or so late and you know the rest
    Snevman and I did exchange emails afterwards and he kindly offered to reimburse me for the tournament stakes and wanted to met up. Unfortunately I was leaving Vegas early the next morning so we could not met and his kind offer was not really needed ( not because I cashed, but I was ok with staking Tony)
    Despite what has been written before on how Tony treats stakes, I believe he did his best in the tournament and was also careful and respectful of the small stake I gave him for the cash game.
    He really also wanted to continue to play poker that night and asked that I join him at the cash table. I would gladly have done so on any other night, but with my flight not that many hours away (a 15 hour trip followed by 8 straight hours at work) I had to say no. He was clearly disappointed but did not grumble.
    Driving back out into the desert to Jean with Tony we chatted about what he needed to do next. I believe he does know what he should do, such as getting Social Security sorted, however when pressed for actual action plans he really did not have them. I am not so sure if this is really laziness, as has had been said many times before, or a function of his thought processes. I wondered how long the Jean phase of his life will last.
    Jean is one surreal place, at least to me and where I come from. It appears to solely consist solely of a Casino/Hotel, Truck stop/Gas station, Police station and a large prison, all on the side of a highway in the middle of the Nevada desert. I could not help thinking that Stephen King could spin a good novel out of such an environment.
    The Goldstrike casino is not that bad a place, I was anticipating worse, think of a larger Bills. Quite a few old but good paying VP machines, so maybe Tony’s VBJ machine will last for some time. Which reminds me despite a tour and rule explanation of the VBJ machines in Circus Circus and Slots of Fun, I never got to see the Jean VBJ “Dream “ machine.
    Maybe next time!

  19. Tony I think you have consistently proven zero ability to control yourself when frustrated or angry for five years now.

    Nothing has improved or changed no matter how many times you do the same thing, and medication or abstinence may be your only hope.

  20. Anyway.. my point with you spewing hatred to random people is..

    It might not be your fault someone's breaking the law to do shit like send you piss in the mail, but it IS partly your fault they're targeting you to begin with. People don't generally go out of their way to fuck with random people for no reason. There's a good chance whoever's messing with you now is someone who got offended by you calling someone a nigger or a faggot, or some other hatred that you spew on a regular basis.

    Post all the racist and hatred filled posts you want on your blog, or your OWN twitter, but do NOT be sending those messages directed at other people! That'll go a long way to having less people constantly trolling you.

    3. Considering the things you say about gays, minorities, and democrats, I am good.

      I don't think you're in a position to pass any moral judgement. And the name I registered on there is different from here.

    4. Sometimes I think that Jon at RTP is a little slow in approving. I had to wait several days before I was approved.

  22. My suggestion re: your most recent RTP post -

    #1 - stop bashing kimlee's chart so much. They made it for you on their own time out of their own free will. When you demand more free analysis and effort instead of being grateful with what you have and it working, you look like a jerk. Like kimlee pointed out, you were winning 6 out of every sessions. But at that point you just whined and complained about how you wanted to make more per hour and people should pay you to gamble with their money

    #2 - you insist you're going to gamble and you're going to get rich, yet you aren't doing anything differently than in the past, and are still making the same mistakes. Definition of insanity.

    1. no ones bashing the chart, if i didnt have full confidence in it i wouldnt be using it, found it more helpful than anything else so far on RTP (except Andys money.) just am worried as to how +ev it is for cash. and dont refer to Kimlee as "they". i ask a lot of questions, so i can figure out how to make up a similar chart without help. Kimlee only pointed that out because he didnt think it was a good thing i won 6 out of 7 sessions, because he got the impression i was martingaling. i wasnt of course, i was just simply always quitting when ahead small amounts soon as i hit a bad count, and continuing to sit and play thru if behind. im doing a hell of a lot different than in the past, i finally found a VBJ u can tell when it shuffles and is 1% comps. thats huge difference.

      Delete
    2. You don't have the roll or patience to use 1% EV to your advantage.

      I refer to kimlee as they because I have no idea if male or female.

      And you still lose patience and martingale off large chunks of your roll because you're pissed off. That has yet to change over 6 years and negates any slow steady advantage you've created otherwise.

      Delete
  23. 1% advantage? You cannot possibly ever get ahead with your bankroll and a 1% edge. If you won ever session, played absolutely perfect you could make $12 to $20 per day. If you did this for a year you'd have $7,000 to $10,000.

    And of course you could never do either. I really don't think living in Jean is a long term plan is it?
