new roll $1735, quite disappointed none of my 64 tickets won any of the 10 drawings, considering there werent as many tickets in the drum as i thought and were less than 5000. i lost quite a bit better more than i normally would, although it was a good idea in the longrun, considering the tickets were on average worth $1 each, increasing my EV by about 1%. i dont think i went about it the proper way though. shouldve bet less at some times i bet way too much, and more at others, i played it in such a way as to make the variance a lot more than it needed to be.
And ive already known this, but im not getting no more money from Andy, and of course still no money on seals, nor do i know who i can buy from. never set up an acct. and my phones past due, might as well cut it off. dont need it since ive given up on getting assistance, too much hassle and gas money i dont have.
am really praying i dont go broke here and am worried about it, considering i thought i was doing well when over $2200, but now have so little. And on Monday i can check back in and rent a room in my name, but i think theyre sold out soon on an upcoming weekend, so thats another big issue looming. and i have very few shirts left. got over $235 in comps though.
i still dont have anywhere nearly enough to play poker, not even omaha8. when i have a $2100 bankroll thats only a $100 poker bankroll, the rest is living expenses. only with 4000 do i have a 2000 poker bankroll, and thats when i want to play poker and id still not be able to buyin over $100. im not like all u young guys, im too old to be broke starting from scratch and going bust not being a big deal. it wasnt when i was in my 20s. Yes, im in a very high variance situation, but not quite as much so as if i went into vegas and tried to play poker (because of the extra housing costs) so i might as well stay here.
i keep thinking there shouldve been a way to get more tickets without too much risk but not sure of the best way that wouldve been. i also dont feel i took advantage of that lucky club promo a year or so ago the best way either. i did find out, from facebook oddly enough, when i won the drawing it laughlin. looks like feb 26 2011, id have guessed further back. so now i can try to find it on an old blog if it exists
