http://twinfalls.craigslist.org/apa/3807360304.html this seems to be an excellent choice as far as cheap housing, only $100 a week or $375 for the entire month, problem is there is only 1 thats available, and it is NOT in NV, so i couldnt play on UP. But id gladly take it if anyone could get me in there for a month, and then id have to take a greyhound to Twin Falls also.
there is a shuttle bus going to Jackpot NV where there is a poker room takes about an hour on the bus and the bus only runs wed-sun.
Nicest thing is in a small town like that, id probably feel a lot safer being in a cheap motel, sure wouldnt feel safe in vegas, and not in reno either, probably would in Wells though. i wonder how easy it would be to earn the monthly rent on seals with clubs if i put all my roll there? the real issue is if theres only 1 room to rent at this motel, there would go the whole idea.
Britni used to find me suggestions like this on craigslist, in some of the weirdest towns and locations across the country, all were like way under $400 a month. some of them in weird locations like WY even. And today was NOT GOOD on the VBJ, i quit when it dropped to $1001 from $1110. there went back yesterday mornings $100 profit. Overall though, once I began playing properly again and limiting my max bet to 1%, i have actually done better than EV would suggest. up to $57 now in comps for when ill need to use comps again for rooms starting tues.
and the good news, i wont have to worry how i can go buy food. Not only was AKgal nice enough to mention she would be passing thru Jean within a day or so and could go buy walmart for me (with my money of course) Chad from TN who posts on my blog and RTP is also going to be in town next week, who ive met before. Chad had told me earlier in the day he would have a car, and be willing to get the food and come say hi out here in Jean. Am also hoping maybe we can go into Vegas and accomplish some other tasks while he is in town. He seems to be trustworthy from his facebook page.
and im back to about 290 seals, but still not nearly enough to be making any withdrawals yet, so no income for quite some time.
and no it dont bother me i never got on the list for public housing, i certainly dont expect to still be needing rental assistance 2-3 yrs down the road, nor be in vegas then. besides if a place opened today i might worry its in an unsafe area. although i know of some people in nice areas getting rental assistance how they do it is beyond me. the only thing id really like is my Apt in Lyons back, but in some small town in NV instead of in KS. But it cant be one of these border towns that dont work for online poker.
there were 2 young girls here who seemed to be in their early 20s with their grandmother, or at least they were calling her that. wouldnt thought she was old enough to be her grandma. anyway one of them came by, briefly scratched my back, and said she hoped i won, seen her do the same thing to another guy at the tables. wish i knew her facebook info, that was really nice of her. at first i wondered if she knew of my blog. and at the time it was very early on, i was actually $20 up. i didnt start losing until the one regular who plays all the time, (sometimes with his GF who also chain smokes) sat down with the cig. the one that hurt was when the dealer got BJ 4 hands in a row, when i had 3 spots out all with plus counts, dont remember ever seeing that before. but still overall im still up in cash from when i was at my lowest point a few days ago. i had $210 cash then plus the bank, now its $289 cash plus alot more in the bank with all them withdrawals. so im still about $250-300 better off.
and i got a food tix yesterday morning, so as soon as they change menus at 6am im ready to go eat, starving for a good meal, eating the last of peanut butter sandwiches, didnt want to eat before i slept, and when i woke up theyd already switched to the overnight menu at 10pm
consider my bankroll to be $80 lower because $80 of my huge past due internet needs paid immediately, have already got emails it could be shut off anytime, and the guy on the phone said they wouldnt do that until its 60 days overdue. i should call them again i think
need to figure out how to fix an alarm clock thats 1 hour 22 min fast, but i wont worry about it, will just look at phone and laptop until i change rooms. not worth bothering to fix.
