when i took my free room at the riviera for 3 nights, my roll was OVER $2000, after just winning $121 at the nugget in the NL game. and i wanted to play the $2-20 spread again because id won over $500 in it just the week before, which got me to over $1800 from $1300. at the time i thought it might be the solution to rebuilding the roll, especially if i got in enough hours to qualify for the freeroll in which even last place is guaranteed $200. and it would be a good promotion for a guy with a lot bigger roll.
but the problem is, every hand u get sucked out on, u lose a ton, and its a lot faster than $2-6 spread which im used to at sams and texas. texas station is trying to offer $2-10 spread also i found out
tonight, when Vince and i went there briefly after leaving the poker palace. and Herbie asked me a good question also. he asked me why when there were so many pool players in there playing horribly loose why i wanted to sit there and play nothing but Team5 regulars. i'd probably done better in the loose game, even though id probably get several hundred back maybe even closer to $1000 if i made the freeroll. But id need a lot more play. its just too expensive a game, with $7 a round in blinds if the mandatory straddle is in effect instead of $3 a round in blinds or $4.
so i blamed being in a casino thats never had my favorite games and never done well in unless grabbing a promotion. and decided to play elsewhere tonight, in a cheap game at the poker palace, start out buying in $40 with a SINGLE $2 BB, and then unlimited buyins, no cap. was hoping i might see Carmen there and find out why shes hardly blogging (1 entry in 2 months) and so quiet on facebook lately when she was so addicted to candy crush saga she was on it all day long. But no luck, she wasnt there. and then the game did not even go, after going for 24 hours yesterday and then breaking up just before tonights tourny. wish id known that, id came by at noon. they said id have better luck coming in on friday next week. also they moved the old shufflemaster VBJ out of there Vince and i used to play. still have the $1 table game BJ, i played 3 hours in it and lost $3.
Vince dropped out his friend across from Tx station at a condo unit thats gated i think, looks nice and he bought it outright for $25,000 only. seems cheap and he only pays $162 a month in some fee to live there. wish i could live that cheap or someone would get me set up in one and let me pay them back per month with a profit. thats a really nice safe place to live within walking distance of a good game, and the ONLY safe place in that neighborhood. in vegas, theres so much u can take advantage of with money, in the way of making money buying and selling real estate. the funny thing is, thats what Britni wanted to get involved in, but in detroit so she very well couldve died.
also them 2 books mom sent were really interesting, ive finished one and am halfway thru the 2nd lucky for me the print is big enough to see instead of the small print so common nowdays. at least online u can zoom in to 125% that makes it easy. and being around a very bright light helps too.
i dont know if its a good thing or a bad thing most all of the drop from $2000 was on poker and not machines, dont say much for my poker game, but its like ive always said, u run really bad when stressed about the money but not when u have plenty of money, or are using someone elses money, which is why i could use some stakes. and im plenty dead tired, been up a lot of hours now and im an old man. so goodnight.
