Running out of moolah again

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.

  1. If I had to bet , I'd say that Britni didn't die. I bet if you get your roll up real big to where you are rich again that she will somehow show up again. She might even give you another of the worlds most expensive hugs.

    So, grow your roll if you want to see britni again.

    Though, I guess it is possible she OD'd on the meth.

    1. funny thing, britni was never around when i had the roll over 10,000 all that time, but a few years before from 2005 to 2008, she was around all the time when i was living at home with family and didnt have much money, or when i first left ks and returned to vegas in 2009.

      it all had to do with online poker ending, thats when she left the scene. still worry a lot of those bad guys she owed money to mightve done her in or her health got too bad.

  4. Tony:

    Did you read the blog post from Christina "Poker and Other Bad Habits"? She is talking about killing herself.

    Maybe you could talk to her? I'm not sure if you know her, but she's a dealer and sounds like she could use a friend...

  5. that blog post seems to have been removed before i got a chance to read it. i sent Jennifer Gay an email, i think they were friends and knew each other well if i remember. and do u know Christina was roommates with claudia once?

    she is not the only woman i know that has bad news going on who could really use a friend right now, but im not at liberty to say more. i might to lightning.

    1. why buy them when you can just get people to send them to you for free?

      Buying them means taking time away from gambling - having to find transportation - maybe stopping at a gas station and playing a bad machine - then hitch hiking back home, thumbs up, with a sign that says "favors upon arriving"

    2. Doesn't SickCallMcgee want to murder you? Why are you listening to advice from someone who wants to murder you?

    3. Yeah but you always complain about the good areas because they cost too much.
      If you want cheap you can't be picky.

  10. http://guardianlv.com/2013/04/iranian-president-mahmoud-ahmadinejad-arrested/ how does anyone feel about the arrest of the president or iran yesterday?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Tony, this story is not being picked up by any mainstream news source ... CNN, Fox, AP, Bloomberg, etc. There are some stories about an ALLY of Ahmadinejad's being arrested, and a couple of obscure stories about the president actually being arrested.

      But given what I've seen so far, I doubt that it's true.

      What difference does it make, anyway? Was Mahmoud one of the donks on Seals or something??

      Have you signed up for the new (legal) online poker now being offered in Vegas??

  14. I need someone to post on RTP as quickly as possible that im having problems logging in. I have no way to email support there, and no regular email address that works.

    this is TBC, I cant log on, my computer crashed and got rid of all my auto stored passwords, and it wont let me reset mine.


    a thing comes up saying what is the answer to this random question, YET A QUESTION NEVER APPEARS. then it says the answer to this is incorrect, so it will not email me a password reset.


    also it wont let me contact the web admin for the same reason, if u try to do that AGAIN u are supposed to answer the random question that never appears.

  15. also as seen in my post on 2+2, ive been waiting over 16 hours to get my documents verified to play on ultimate poker, as well as a ton of other people it seems. the guy who was answering everyones questions logged off and went home to rest about the time I began to post on 2+2. and WSOP if he is no longer in FL owes it to me to say hi. and my seals chips are back over 800 from the 300s glad to say. im quite upset this new legal site isn't offering Omaha, the game selection is exceptionally poor.

  16. I was going to post on RTP (once I am able to log on) that I won $163 on the VBJ, new roll $1526. since I returned to the goldstrike, have earned $23 in comps only for 3 whole days (waste way too much time in the room and bet too small--afraid to follow kimlees method of flat betting $9 a hand for 3 hours for fear id lose VERY BIG). but since I returned, I did gain $171 total on the VBJ machine. not once did I ever bet over $14 a hand either. I think the key to protect my roll is to NOT follow Kimlees chart that called for such big bets. Remember im no longer playing it to make money, just to keep my room and possibly to eat. but damn, I need to get at least $25 in comps a day, and that's like 18 hours of play. need to buy rooms off Cutter somehow, hes always selling his comps for a large discount.

  17. Bad idea tony, can you seriously not beat 1/2 nl?

  18. Tony, go to RTP and type Random Question in the search box. That will take you to the link to get the answer.

  19. Mike Larson poses a good question, Tony. I'm guessing your answer is not that you can't beat the game, but that you're not playing because you're scared you can't beat the variance with that roll.

    Again, though, that's my guess and I'd love to read your response to that question. I think you doubt your ability to win more than I do. I don't question that you have the skill to win - my consistent doubt has been that you have the discipline or control to win at the game. I'm not sure you do.

  20. u got it seattle irish, I just don't want to play 1-2 with so little money. I could easily beat it if I had over twice the roll I do now. seems like I only win when I don't need to or am playing with someone elses money instead of mine.

    and its still bugging me I cannot get my locaton verified as NV to play at UP. dax (official Ultimate poker stations casino representative) from 2+2 called me, he is wondering if it could be that Jean is too close to cali, though he claims it shouldn't, he says he is checking with his engineers and support will email me. I seriously might have to wait til I am in Vegas but if u read the 80 page thread many in vegas are having that problem. and no one in Laughlin is able to verify a NV location. Mc Gee did the right thing moving back into vegas.

    1. So what's your plan to get a bigger bankroll?

      Delete
    2. simply to sit and WAIT. that's really all u can do is put in ur time. its going to take a good 2 years or so to run this $1500 up to $5000 the right way instead of the risky way.

      Delete
    3. Waiting is not a plan.

      What games are you going to play? How many hours a week? What are your backup plans? What if you get really sick and can't play for a week? What if that good machine is removed from the Gold Strike? How much money do you need a month to pay for your living experiences? How much can you expect to earn each month under your plan? Is that amount greater than your monthly expenses? How will you handle variance? How will you avoid them bad machines?

  21. Tony, have you tried using wifi to play Ultimate Poker instead of the modem or hotspot ?
    When using my hotspot It would never verify my location for play but anytime I use wifi to connect(hotel, poker room, etc) it works.

  22. I'm not sure if my previous post went through.
    Have you tried using wifi to connect and play? When I use my hotspot it doesn't verify but when using wifi it works.

    1. the only way to do that, would be to first pay a ton of money for wireless access, and they already said my issue isn't with my internet connection, but my cell. cant u come out to Jean and see if u can get online or get me online? I wish someone would. if I cant get online here I need to leave especially with last nights drop to $1200

  23. Isn't there anywhere there you can try free wifi to see if it works.
    Starbucks, mcdonalds, casino.

    Even if you had to pay $15 in your room for a day maybe it might work.
