women

Spoke to verizon on the phone, they called me while i was on the VBJ. Their tech said theyres no way to guarantee me a NV isp, but thought id be more likely to get one in vegas, and would have a decent chance, but alot of people dont agree. he did say if i was in the middle of the state, such as winnemucca or Elko, id probably have one for sure. he thinks im too close to the border for it not to be reflected in other servers, but why scottsdale? thats a lot further than vegas, not sure if he gave me a good answer, but he is a verizon tech engineer and i explained the 2+2 thread but he had less interest in it than the guy i called 2 nights before. I still fear leaving Jean, and still not being able to get online stations. getting onto stations will be far more important once they add omaha, theres so much to be made in omaha ratholing, and stations casinos online site allows ratholing and immediately sitting back down.

new roll $1354. and ive also still got over 700 chips on seals, worth $75 or so. and the good news is my Tmobile cell bill is off my mind for right now, supposedly a guy named Scotty who reads my blog, and has been for 5 yrs, is one of the Ultimate Poker representatives on 2+2, he appreciated what i was trying to do with verizon spreading the word about 2+2 and complaining about lack of access to Ultimate poker, so he told me he would pay my cell phone bill and to email him their mailing address and my Tmobile account number, which i did, found out he paid $200 on it instead of the $54 immediately needing paid, which surprised me. he said he thinks it will be posted on the 9th. Kind of fast if he paid by mail id think.

the reason i was complaining to verizon even though thats NOT my phone carrier is because it IS my broadband modem carrier, and i was not able to show up as having a NV ip address which is also needing to play on Ultimate Poker and not just having my cell phone work on the triangulation process. NV law requires BOTH.

Not seen or heard from Omerta since that day he was here, and not heard from Cutter again either, although wasnt Wed supposed to be the day he was coming to Jean?

Nice to see theres still people in this world like Grouchie and his woman who still believe in marriage. A good woman is hard to find, and one friend i was talking to got upset with one of my texts last night. i was disappointed shes no longer single as of 3-4 days ago, and she said i was judgemental, but i couldnt figure out how. I thought she was someone i could really relate to because of things she said to me on facebook, and asked me a lot recently as to how im doing. I never know what will upset a woman and am surprised if i say something offensive. figured she could relate to me because of her own struggles with her own addictions which are different than mine, but not any more dumb. But then again, i worry all women think im ugly, so i feel maybe for that they cut me no slack. wish id known if Claudia had thought i was ugly or not, we never discussed it. Claudia was more concerned with the fact i couldnt get hard, and she complained about it to Grump a lot. no idea whatever became of Grump either.

now do these texts sound judgemental to u? wasnt intended to be about her. she said she just read my last message, that i was a real ass, and judgemental, and she shouldnt have confided in me. not sure what and when she confided in me. I wonder if she understands that because of my aspergers i dont know how to relate to women or talk to them, or if she even remembers that since she seldom if ever sees my blog?

here are my texts:

(after she first sent a text she met a guy and has been with him 3-4 days now). And i dont think she meant the friends of her parents where she was temporarily living that was a guy and girl, probably wouldnt be referred to as meeting a guy.

text 1: (from me) sorry to hear that, hope he dont use drugs. Ty on facebook?
text 2: (from me)$12 up and went to room
text 3: (from me)I am a lot better catch than other guys because instead of trying to have sex with as many girls as possible, i want one to fall in love with and be there for 100% main thing, i only want one girl
text 4:(from me)these were sent within a 2 minute period, all 4 of them. then her text to me was about 12 minutes later. here is text 4:
women in vegas dont care about love only getting money and going out getting drunk or high. they got a fucked up view on what matters in life.

now not knowing which of those 4 texts is the offensive one, id guess its text 4. could be text one though, since Ty is black. However, theres a good chance he isnt even the man shes talking about. He just seemed into her from his facebook posts. But who am i to read people? i cant, and it effects my poker game too. its true though, and i didnt mean her specifically so she shouldnt have thought i was judging her. i wasnt. i meant women as a whole, and i guess i was just disappointed that she seemed to have found a new BF.

yeah good women are hard to find. had i not been so bitter finding out Claudia didnt love me and want me to come live in NYC with her that relationship wouldnt have ended as it did. someone else showed me a thread on Brandi Hawbaker and she showed a lot of promise in the poker world as did Britni although not as good looking. just as badly underweight though. But more messed up. seemed to be a much bigger scammer out to con guys and Tom franklin also seems like a real piece of shit. he should be with a girl closer to his age, leave the ones 20-40s for me and he should take the ones 40s to 60 since hes an old man. and of course if a woman gets a male backer the male backer is going to want a relationship or at least sex. she shouldnt pretended to be surprised. Like Britni she was emo and talked of suicide and didnt consider it something to joke about. I feel like Carmen could have the same promise in poker if she would commit her all to it. Any woman can a lot easier than a man if shes not ugly and gay. Cause men will do their best to keep her in chips if they find her single and attractive.

and another thing, theres no reason a woman cant commit to just one man and let him take care of her til shes able to bankroll herself off of poker, thats what God intended. no reason for women to be needing to be getting stakes from multiple guys who all want a piece of ass. one guy is enough, and people should still believe in love and commitment. the Bible talks about how much God hates divorce. Our morals have gone to shit nowdays but since people dont know God and just want to sleep around, they call me the immoral one just because i dont have a regular job or income. now dont get me wrong, theres nothing wrong with having sex with a woman on the first date, but u better be in love with her too on that first date, and not end the relationship after having sex. ending a relationship soon after having sex is a terrible sin, u should stay together and try to make it work out. its too hard to ever be able to find another woman. a man that wont stick to 1 woman should be looked down on, and be the type of guy any woman avoids. who cares if he has money or not, or a car, a job, etc. main thing a woman should look for is a guy who isnt going to have sex with her and then leave her. at least thats the way it was in my mothers day.

    You mean you think in your 'Mothers Day' people did not have wild sex with many partners, you mean in the 60s and 70s, the day of sex, drugs, and rock and roll?

  4. Let me get this straight. You can't perform sexually and the chick this happened with tells someone else about it and complains to him about it revealing something so deeply personal and private..... and you would want scum like this in your life why???? And you actually post all this on a public blog??? Oh your haters are going to have a field day with this one.

  5. Vintage stuff, TBC. I was concerned you were losing it, but that unique perception is back.

    "and another thing, theres no reason a woman cant commit to just one man and let him take care of her til shes able to bankroll herself off of poker, thats what God intended. no reason for women to be needing to be getting stakes from multiple guys"

  10. Hi Sugar,

    Here is my female expert opinion.

    1. You are NOT ugly. At all. You are definitely more than attractive enough to get a woman. However, hygiene is definitely an issue. Women won't want to kiss someone with bad breath or who looks dirty. Even Brad Pitt wouldn't get a woman if he didn't have clean hands/nails/package, etc.

    2. Claudia. I do think she found you attractive or she would not have been intimate with you. She was doing it for no other reason than she wanted to. She wasn't using you for money. If anything you were costing her money. I think it all fell apart because before she left you were consumed by the thought of her leaving and you were freaking out. You were very jealous of poker grump when there was no reason to and because of both of those things you ended up saying some not so nice things to Claudia. Regardless, the time you spent with claudia should show you that you're capable of having a relationship with a woman. I know it still hurts that its over but think of it this way. Instead of being sad that it's over, try to be happy that it happened.

    3. Text 4 was incredibly judgemental toward women in Vegas and quite rude as well as untrue. Some women are like that but not all.

    4. All women are different but many women DO want a one on one committed relationship. You just need to find the right woman and try to turn off that shiat about what a good woman would or wouldn't do. If you want to keep a woman you need to accept her as she is and not dictate what you think she should do. Just as she should accept you for who you are.

    5. As I recall Claudia mentioned the "getting hard problem" to Grump because she was looking to him for possible solutions, not to just gossip about you but that's water under the bridge.

    6. Good luck in Jean.

    7. Congrats to grrouchie and the lucky lady! I think it's a GREAT union. xoxo

  12. Iron Mile AKA Todd just a quick response to your comments. I don't post there so ill respond here. First of all Tony never made any statement like that.

    Second if I was a fat fuck like you I would keep my mouth shut about what other folks look like. Take your photo off twitter. If you spent half the time you do exercising instead of mocking Tony you'd lose tons of weight. Actually and this is no offense to Tony you kinda look related to him so I'm not sure why you're always makin fun of him. Doesn't matter how much shit you talk you'll still be a bottom feeding shit stain. Anyway looking forward to your response. Do yourself a favor, skip a few meals. You look like shit.

  14. Tony, where are you at in getting your SSD reinstated? I hope you realize that it can take months to process after you begin. I would suggest you make this a priority so that if your cash runs out you can still get a SS check, food stamps, and housing assistance. If you keep sitting on your ass your gonna be hating life.

  15. Actually I don't really know if he is and I probably should delete that but if someone I don't even know wants to trash me on another site then expect a response. I don't understand the 5th grade mentality or why a grown adult has to try to stir up trouble or continually pick on someone. I can handle it. I've had alot of talks with Tony and I don't think he's ever said something about me he shouldn't. I don't have the time or desire to play games.

    I guess I just don't understand the whole mentality behind it. I'm sure as a kid I did stuff like that but not as an adult. I don't get having to pick on someone everyday unless you really have a low self esteem or need the accolades of others to get some purpose in your life. If I really didn't like someone I wouldn't follow them all over the Internet to harass them I wouldn't bother with them at all but I'm pretty secure with myself. Never got into that and don't understand it. Anyway it's not gonna stop. There will always be folks who live their fantasy life thru their computer and act in a way they wouldn't in public. All the times I've been around Tony I've never seen anyone say anything to him in person. It's not like people are afraid of him it's just not socially acceptable to act that way in public.

  17. I lost 50 lbs last year, so TYVM. Looking pretty good now.

    Bottom feeder? LOL. If that means someone who leads a kickass life doing and seeing a bunch of cool shit and who is on pace to retire early to do philanthropic work, I'll take it, I guess.

    And if challenging Tony to develop a life plan is making fun of him, I guess more people should make fun of him instead of enabling his addictions.

    I don't know what got your panties in a bunch. All I did was repeat Tony's claim that all you do is date strippers. Good luck with that.

    1. I will keep the brief. You don't challenge Tony make fun of him. Read your own posts on RTP. You also quoted him as saying something he didn'tt say. Anyway I highly doubt you are leading a kick ass life as you say lol. You are obviously very insecure, and it's understandable. Try actually living your life instead of spending so much time worrying about people you don't know.

      Tony I hope that things work out for you. If things are really that bad then you should stay off the Internet for awhile. I'm sure you will be receiving plenty of negative comments. Stay calm and wait for Vince to pick u up.

    4. Of course I'm sure your wardrobe choices are limited being that you are obese so I should be more sensative. Stick with what you do. You'd probably look like a sack of shit in a nice suit anyway. Don't waste your money. Guys like you look like crap whatever you wear.

    6. I wouldn't update your photo. I'm sure you'll gain it all back. My bad I'm sure you closet is filled with Tom Ford and Gucci. You cut quite an impressive figure. BTW that's what people wear by a pool. You probably don't go to one very often considering how you look but take my word on it. Thanks for the health tips. Never been an issue. You seem to harbor some anger at strippers. I imagine you've been taken advantage by a few in your day. Desperate fat guys like you are how they pay their bills. They are as disgusted by you as you are of them trust me. Ok I gotta put this to rest now. I don't wanna keep a stud like you from your kickass lifestyle :). You have a wonderful day

    7. LOL. I actually date real women. Intelligent, educated, career oriented women. Not single mothers with drug problems who work the pole because daddy molested them.

      I don't go to pools because I'm not 8.

      You seem to focus on how dudes look a lot. Maybe that's why you and TBC are such great pals. Don't ask, don't tell I suppose. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

      Would love to chat, but I gotta check out the new line of Ed Hardy wear so I can rock the white trash look that seems to be all the rage with old white dudes.

      Delete
    8. Todd you don't go to pools because your man tits are probably bigger than some of the chicks. FYI the Ed hardy thing died out long ago thankfully so keep waiting. Good luck with the hunt for the ladies. Maybe lose the beard. Makes you look like some creepy rapist, unless that's the look you were going for. Keep telling yourself you actually date. Not buying it. With all the time you spend writing about TBC on two different web sites how would you even find the time.

      Delete
    9. Nice try. Haven't had a beard in three plus years. See, I'd try to explain to you how photographs work, but I'm sure you wouldn't quite grasp the concept.

      I find it strange that a man who looks like a dorkier, more white trash version of Phil Helmuth would talk about another man's appearance. Here's a hint for you: strippers don't actually like you. They just pretend to because you are blowing your money on them. Sort of like TBC and Britni.

      Anyway, I'll let you go. I'm sure you have a big Marco Polo game to get ready for today. I hope it doesn't rain. If it does, maybe mommy can take you to the roller rink or to the arcade instead.

      MARCO!

    10. Good you shaved off the beard. Show off those three chins. You worked hard for them, be proud. I'm actually off to the beach but I'll look for you on your migration back north with the rest of your whale pod. Ill wave you can spurt some water from your blowhole. I can tell you have some anger issues towards women. Sorry to tell you not all guys have to pay for a women's attention. Fat 45 year old Belushi look alikes certainly do. Some guys actually have women that wanna hang out even if they aren't spending money. Some guys even have girls that spend money on them. Anyway this is Tonys blog not a battleground so I will stop. Maybe you should start a blog about your kick ass life and give guys like me hope. It's better than you harassing a guy like Tony who you've never met nor have any contact with. I know it makes you feel better to do it but at the end of the day you're still a big loser. Hey that's an idea try out for that TV show. You'd be a shoe in

  18. eating in the buffet, changed my mind about leaving, ive got nowhere to go and Josie thought thats a good idea since her glasses on the way, also forget another free room voucher for the golden nugget in the mail also from someone else. im paid thru monday. will just grind in the room on seals one and only thing working for me. roll is $756. new max bet if i do play any VBJ is $7, but i would be best NOT to play. i would NEVER have lost all that if it wasnt for losing the following max bets $78, $33, $88, $69, and $45. (the amounts left in the machine). accounted for over half the loss. also i did manage to sell an ad on here for $25 via paypal, take a look at it.

    the math hasnt changed i shouldnt go broke if i dont bet over 1% of the roll, but 1% is getting less and less. Wish id just had the discipline to stick to it. some people who think of suicide (although ive threatened it before when mad i never would of course--but many are sincere, i worry thats what happened to Britni) Britnis mom had her in therapy before for cutting herself, and she often coughed up blood. But what im saying is some people do it because they think it "ends the pain". i feel the same way about pressing MAX bet, i feel ill get all my money back possibly in 1 swoop and end the pain of being stuck. if anyone with money truly cared about getting me help, use it to get me into intensive inpatient gambling rehabilitation programs. and a doctor attorny and counselor.

    But if i had the discipline i should never go broke, the math is GOD and dont change. id lose what EV i should lose, and get free rooms daily, even if i played 16 hours a day to get them.

    2. Tony, can you explain this in a bit more detail? How is it that you should never go broke on a "+EV machine?" You seem to acknowledge that even on a "+EV machine," you "lose what EV [you] should lose." And, I understand you would get comps in return. But, you are still expected to lose. So, explain how you would never go broke, absent an endless bankroll?

      Tony has explained that he will never bet more than 1% of his bankroll. He's right. It assumes, of course, that he attributes value to fractions of a cent. Perhaps through a bitcoin-type-system.

    1. According to Tony's twitter, he wants in-patient treatment for gambling addition. Such treatment would, however, solely be limited to curing him of addiction to -EV Machines. He does not want to be cured of his compulsion to play +EV machines [of course, he just lost $700 on a supposed +EV machine, but that's a mere detail].

      Tony, your story has become depressing the past few months. You hardly ever blog anymore. Instead, you just update your roll on RTP. You're essentially living in a truck stop in the middle of no where, blowing your money on a VBJ machine. Is this the life you want to lead? And, rest assured, the folks who are encouraging you to continue on RTP are nitwits. Simply nitwits.

      Go back to Kansas for a few weeks with what little money you have left (your mom will not charge you rent for a short visit). Regroup. Get your shit together. Come up with a plan. Make haste for some safety while you still have money to do so.

      Good luck, as always.

      P.S. If you need to reach me tonight, I'll be at Mandalay Bay after midnight, grinding the crap out of the Ms. Kitty machine. I wonder if Kimlee from RTP has a chart for Ms. Kitty (or Mr. Cashman . . .).

  20. in keeping with the spirit of making sure i have a steady income from online poker, for the 3rd day in a row, ive just withdrew $20 off of seals.

    roll is $756, been asleep all day, til about 11pm, havent left the room. there is 1 $25 payment on its way to my bank via paypal(from the ad one guy bought) (how about a few more of u buy some ads--that way im conducting a legitimate business, selling advertising), and thursdays $24 withdrawal, fridays $22 withdrawal, and now saturdays $20 withdrawal. Once all of those payments hit the bank, (assuming i spend win or lose $0 cash--yeah unlikely i know--roll could be back to $847. still nothing i know. i do however, still have 900 chips on seals. could certainly use a few bitcoins.

    1. yeah, i have no interest in working a business other than online poker, but i have no problem accepting advertising from people who are into Multi level marketing businesses, accepting money for ads is all free gravy that helps me to survive. i dont know why im not selling way more ads, odd no one has anything they want to advertise on this blog.

  22. won $22 VBJ, new roll $778. never made a single bet over $7, and to fix it so i wouldnt affect my win or loss by leaving when ahead, and not leaving if behind, i decided to leave the minute id gained $5 in comps, (once the count was negative that is). so i gained $5 in comps, of course thats not anywhere what i need in comps a day to survive, and that cant even feed me. i need someone to bring me a tent soon. its safe sleeping outdoors around here, i could never do it in vegas. way too dangerous, im not YOUNG like i was when i did it before, and i didnt own a laptop then that i needed for online poker for those who wondered why i could do it then but not now. i do a good job budgeting and stretching a dollar when it comes to buying food at walmarts though, the choices i bought lasted $31 for 2 weeks. lots of 80c cans of beans and fruit, and i need a ton more of those cans now.

    i felt proud of myself the day i was panhandling years ago, and a guy who took me inside the grocery store to buy $10 worth of food (who was afraid to give cash) thought i did such a good job buying food good for me and still cheap, he ended up giving me another $5 in cash after all, saying he knew i wouldnt waste it after watching me shop. that made me feel proud.

  23. So Tony - What's the problem? Is it your bankroll? Not sure where your money is going because I didn't see how you lost money this time but it seems as if though you should stay away from the VBJ. FWIW, it's probably only a matter of time before someone offers BTC VBJ online, which will be a 100% guaranteed money loser. I hope you'll have the fortitude to stay away from it. I know you don't like or listen to advice, but I'm giving it to you anyway: stop f*ing off with the bullsh*t games and get serious about your life. Stop playing the vid blackjack or vid poker because (if you kept track) either you lack the gumption to play the games (which means you can't play them correctly after all these years) OR they can't be beat. Let's assume either is true and STOP playing them! Let's consider, for the second, that these games are profitable. Let's also assume that the casino is a for-profit business. Do you think they could make money by offering games that can be beaten? Do you think they could make money by offering games that can be beaten + offering rewards based on the amount of money you spend to beat those supposedly beatable games? Do you think casinos, as businesses, are dumb because they are essentially offering handouts to anyone who will come play their games?



    If it were true, this would be a secret that no one could keep! Everyone, including me and my family, would be sitting down at the machines and playing them day and night in order to get this free money. People in Africa who are starving to death would come to Vegas to play the VBJ machines that hand out money! Obviously, this is not true. You don't see this kind of behavior. You don't see a "professional VBJ player" because there is no such thing. They either got lucky or went broke, just like you have experienced over the years. Look at it this way: you've probably been FAR luckier than the average player, and FAR smarter than the average player in that you HAVEN'T gone completely broke yet. However, your bankroll certainly hasn't increased on account of the VBJ. You've been able to get services for some of the losses you've encountered, such as free meals or free hotel rooms. However, and I wish you tracked it, you can easily see a path of negative income continually going forward.

  25. Great job with regular withdrawals from Seals.

    Quick question, though. How much have you DEPOSITED onto Seals recently? You have a habit of just reporting on when you withdraw money and not when you deposit or buy chips off other people.

    Assuming it's zero deposits and everything you've withdrawn is profit, that's AWESOME! You should be HAPPY to report that each time in the future when updating us on your withdrawals from Seals.

    Thanks in advance.

  27. Wec I wanted to address something you said on the other site. I can only speak for myself but since I take heat for sticking up for Tony ill put in my two cents. I've told Tony that its not good for him to go to the other site because from what I've seen there's a lot of abusive posts there that are in now way intended to help. Calling someone retard ugly gay etc is not productive. True there are people giving constuctive advice, just gets list in all the abusive junk over there.

    Speaking only for myself I've given Tony plenty of the same advice as others looking out for his best interest. Stay off the machines, get housing,get SSI, stick to poker only etc. I've given clothes food and tried to arrange for him to go to a live in place to help him with his issues. Any money was a stake where there was a possible return for me financially. He's done well on occasion with that. Anyway there's a lot of other things that a lot of people have done to try to help him. If he chides to continue to live like he does its his business as far as I'm concerned.
    What he does has zero affect on my personal life. I would not berate or insult him for doing what he does. He's a grown man I'm not his father. If I give anyone advice I don't get upset if they don't follow it. It's giver freely without conditions. Tony can't be bullied into changing. He's actually made some improvements in his life. Anyway these comments weren't directed at you just trying to clear up some things. People start reading his blod and think they know all about him. Some people actually know him and have spent time around him and have a better understanding about him. Nothing wrong with constuctive input even if its blunt. I just don't see the need for personal attacks etc.

    1. Fair comments.

      He does not go for bullying into changing that is for sure. I failed badly trying that.

      I only know for sure something has to change, and the status quo is not working.

      My fair question to you....How will this all end? What is the solution? What would be your ultimate plan to get him back on track and how would you go about doing it? What does he need?

    2. The bullying comment wasn't directed your way. I know that you recently went out of your way to help him with an issue he was having. All good questions to which I have no good answers. He's been doing pretty much the same thing all his life so he probably won't change much. On the bright side at least he is not on the streets yet although he keeps getting closer. I've like many others have given him advice. I've looked into a Christian based service that could help him and does provide housing, but they don't let you use a computer or phone while there. Not sure if that would work but its an open offer and I would arrange transportation even if he wanted to check it out.

      As with any type of addiction the person has to want the help 110% or they are not gonna be successful. I'm not an expert but I think his autism makes his addiction worse. It's like the fuel helping to feed the fire. The autistic people I've met have a much narrower way of seeing things and aren't always rational in their views. It's hard to get through to him but once in awhile things sink in.

      He spends a ton of time online and he's subjected to lots of rude caustic comments everyday. Part of being on these forums. They attract the weirdos and people who try to live through the Internet. I wonder if its part of the reason he blows up when he feels slighted in real life. I don't know but it's possible.

      At this point I try to just be a friend and help him with small things. I'm not expecting to make any major changes. It's his life. He doesn't affect me in anything he does. I hope he succeeds. It's too easy to exhaust yourself or get angry if you inject yourself too much into someone else's life. That's why I do what I can but I'm not emotionally vested in his success or failure. Somehow he will make it. He has for 25 plus years. My biggest worry is that he end up on the streets so permanent housing along with some type of assistance is probably should be his priority. He's not gonna stop gambling. I'm not gonna stop smoking cigars. Might kill me but I have no desire to stop and there is nothing anyone could say or do to change that. His gambling issue is similar so I try to focus on the areas that might actually work.

      The people who have actually met him know he operates at a different level. He seems very focused on certain things and its sometimes hard to have a two way conversation with him. It's part of his Autism just like his loud rapid speech. It's not something he chose just born like that and shouldn't be something to make fun of. Anyway don't wanna run on here. For me I'm gonna concentrate on the small stuff. What he needs IMO is just for his friends to be there for him and try to help but understand it ain't easy. Probably the best example is Vince. He gets Tony. I've met him seems like a good guy and he helps him a lot without getting a lot in return but he's been there for Tony for awhile. I know Tony pays him for rides etc but I don't think many folks would do what he has done.
