make sure u dont miss any posts, typing up way too many posts in too short a time period again

who can give me ideas about better arranging the comments on this blog, how would the comments look better if i had my own website instead of blogger, and are there any certain software i can install that would help? (such as when i used disqus in the past?--also does anyone remember why i quit using disqus?)

also i think it would be a bad idea for me to reply to comments people make on RTP, because its teaching them bad habits, and isnt showing them the importance of posting here instead. so if someone asks me something, and wants to know why im not saying anything, they will need to post it here instead. and of course, this includes KAT and the black pimp

u see, this blog is the ONLY possession i really totally own and control that has any real value to me, and can someday be made into a book. so of course i want it to prosper and grow, and eventually im sure ill make money selling ads. maybe with the help of an ad salesman working on comission? and another person id have to pay would be a technical support person since im no good at all with that type of thing. I miss grouchies help, he really was an asset to me on these kind of issues years ago. so who can use a "job?" someone highly experienced in this type of thing. in fact im pretty sure it was grouchie who installed the disqus software, i guess he felt unappreciated because i couldnt afford to pay him.

yeah i was really disappointed zippy wouldnt come hang out today, and tatude or no one else would take me to buffalo bills today to play poker in Primm, although he can bring me into vegas tomorrow if i need it. I made sure i didnt inconvenience zippy for nothing by waiting til today to contact him on AVP, but he didnt seem very appreciative of my thoughtfulness. of course i had no idea if i would be in Jean or not, so no way would i have known anything about food earlier. and what i really wanted was to play poker anyway, thats my only ticket out of my lousy financial situation. too bad JG and V dont see it that way. and instead of playing the same stakes on lock as i could play on intertops, i should really be there instead so i earn alot more. just waiting to be able to take care of the documents situation. the real issue was i couldnt be spending a bunch of money on food if i was going to be homeless the next day with no where to put it when id be eating at fast food places.

so to come into vegas, what i really need are rooms from cutter, someone to stay with, someone like Kat who could get rooms at the riv they dont need that i could pay them for, or just a larger roll so i feel i have enough. $1224 isnt enough. theres not a homeless person in all of vegas who could find shelter for that little money longterm thats safe and private. and of course, im under the additional handicap of needing the money for poker. a friend of Josies was once willing to pay for a week so i could play only poker and try to find an attorny during the week, and come into vegas, but Josie said she hasnt wrote her back and she figures they changed their mind. at the time i thought i wanted to try and make a go of it in Jean, but now i dont really think thats the best solution. i was really lucky today to win $50 for spinning the wheel, ask Cutter.

yeah a $25 don sng on lock is just as hard to win as one on intertops (they are the same players) but on one the money is worth a lot more, i wouldnt be surprised if friends are figuring out ways to dump money between sites. wonder how that partnership lasts, (how lock and intertops like sharing each others customers and rake).

and i am so sick of this horrible food, mc donalds is even far better and more so burger king, i feel like wasting some of my comps on a $5 bag of doritos at the giftshop, but they are way overpriced when u dont buy at walmarts. Walmarts became the most popular (and loved) store in America by showing so much compassion for those who cant afford to pay much for the things they need to live on.

i really think if i can get over my fears of homelessness and losing everything, maybe i could be back to $2500 off poker alone by the end of the wsop. and then id be 100x better off. im missing out on all the good PLO8 mtts down at the nugget at the V. and another thing id really like to play in is the meetup at southpoint for 2+2 members in July. and of course also miss the private friends tourny.

oh well, at least if i lose this $40 i moved onto lock, im gaining a world of cheap MTT experience and sng experience, although i need the MTT experience alot more as few tournies as ive played compared to most people alot of whom ONLY play tournies. i feel a little dumb playing harder $25 sngs here and yet not getting $25 in real money when i win, will be glad once i get my docs working on intertops. or once UP has a better selection of games and i can play there. Vook should at least be proud im learning MTT experience. where else but lock has a big enough player pool to get it?

getting to the last of the food from Chad, was certainly incredibly helpful and fed me for a long time if hes ready this, regardless of the taste getting old very quickly if thats all u eat. also took a bad beat in the PLO8mtt and the $25 sng, down to $83 on lock of the $100. but in real money lost, thats very little. but im not making anything either, which is why i need to play live poker. the only thing in my life ive ever really won money at.

  1. I have a car till Thurs so let me know but it's gotta be early. Way too hot for rides in the desert and its great pool weather. You will never make everyone happy on your choice of blog format. You do attract a lot of hits to this and other sites. Hopefully you can find a way to generate some income from it. Some prefer the blog format others the proboards format. This important thing is that you post as much as possible. That's what people come to read.

    There is a lot of critism about you censoring the blog but you've seen on more than one occasion what happens when you don't. There are some sick fucks who stalk you and will try to ruin it for you. You allow a lot of unflattering posts here so not sure what the concern is. Just keeps out the folks who wanna do nothing but make stupid comments on a daily basis.

  3. "what i really wanted was to play poker anyway, thats my only ticket out of my lousy financial situation. too bad JG and V dont see it that way."

    That's not true, is it, Tony? You have someone offering you a $10.00 an hour job. You came up with excuses why that wouldn't work (you won't take a job until you have an apartment? Why? Having a job would HELP you get an apartment. Having a job would help you in so many ways.) You had someone offering you a job that would have paid thousands each month, and you dilly-dallied on that offer forever and never really committed until the offer was gone.

    You continue to make excuses for avoiding anything that takes effort on your part. You are lazy, Tony.

    You can change, though. You can change today. You can say, "I'm sick of being broke and I'm going to change my life!" You can start working this week and have a steady income (hell, you could even play poker on the side). YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE.

    So, are you going to ocntinue the path towards nowhere through your laziness or are you going to take ownership of your life?

  4. As an FYI, I never felt unappreciated nor did I ever expect (or ask for) money.

    I've always been happy to help where I can.

    As to why you stopped using Disquss? I think there were complaints about the software and there was too much moderation going on. I'm not 100% sure but I am leaning towards a lot of regulars didn't like it much at all.

  5. lost $14 VBJ, new roll $1210. took $7 in comps and bought chips and drinks at the gas station. got $105 left in comps in case i decide to pay for a week in the morning. might have to instead of going to vegas, because i just cant bring myself to sleep out in that sleeping bag at night, and zippy is right, im so cool in my room i didnt even think about it being hot during the day. summer came along fast.

  6. You are probably better off staying in Jean if you planned to sleep outside in Vegas. Forget about snakes the heat would kill u. If you change your mind let me know. Probably a good idea to have a backup plan in place. You still have a few people here that will help you. My offer also will always stand regarding the place I told you about. There is no sense in going into Vegas if it means you will get stuck out there. If you get some free rooms and you can stay a bit it might be worth it. Let me know.

    1. remember the crazy rule u told me about or she told me about where they dont allow u to use a laptop on the property, not even in the privacy of ur room? dumbest rule i've ever heard of and it would destroy my life, its not supposed to be a prison, and people should be encouraged to stay in contact with the people closest to them, not discouraged. sounds almost like a false cult. (mission)

      Delete
    2. No cult it's a Christian based mison. They treat people with addictions so they have certain rules. I don't know everything about it had just offered it as an idea. It seemed to me to be better than being homeless. They also might have been able to make referrals also. As with any suggestion I make its your life so do what works for you. No pressure it will always be there if you are interested in going by, if not no big deal. Don't worry it's not run by relatives of Jim Jones. If its not a god fit for you that's fine just was letting you know about an option.

  7. Tony:

    I can do a ride now and again. However, I'm a father and I have a job; it will require planning. I won't respond to last minute requests, but if you plan ahead, I'm guessing we can work something out.

  8. So are you telling me you have no interest in legal appointments, doctor appointments and seeking a job? Because that's what I'm reading by way of your lack of response to my continued posts.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. sure its like to talk to legal aid, but i would swear u would have no more luck reaching a live person that i would, they do not hire employees to take phone calls, and they block their phones so messages cannot be left on top of it. i know this for a fact since i called to find out. People always think they know everything because they dont want to go to the trouble of testing things out like i did.

      why do i need a drs appointment? they already know i have autism, and mom said i shouldnt use the dr in KS because he didnt want me to get the ssi even though he knew i had the aspergers. i just need an attorny.

      why get a job? i should be left to live my life as i see fit, same as everyone else who makes their living playing poker, and be taken in or staked or loaned just like everyone else would if they got too low on funds. u dont tell pokermonkey and backpack steve to go out and find jobs, and its a lot better to get money from people that want to help via private donations than from forcing people to help who dont want to and have no say in the matter (in other words the taxpayers). if i had money i would be using it to help other players get back on their feet, i did that for mike champeuax once (and others) and he ripped me off on the chop, made me wait 6 months and then didnt pay me enough. a lot of others never paid me back at all.

      no wonder i think my ethics are superior, i always paid my debts immediately. the only people i didnt pay were those who gave gifts instead of stakes or loans, because i wasnt required to pay them. i dont think its nobodys business what i do with my life since it dont personally effect them. a lot of people are just angry i have so many friends who care and want to see my life better. and i think i am making my life better, i've became a lot better at poker, and now only play the good machines and not the bad ones.

      i shouldnt have to defend how i live my life to others just because i have a blog. should have the freedom to follow my dreams and do what makes me happy.

    2. You are a good person Jennifer. You really tried to help. Unfortunatley your offer has fallen on deaf ears. The statements above show that all the things Tony says he wants are not true. When he is offered a way to work at getting his wants he has an excuse for not trying.

      It was very nice of you to offer your help.

    3. No problem, Tony.

      I won't bring up the job topic again.

    4. if you want to be left to live your life how you see fit and gamble for a living then people should stop paying your bills for you, stop giving you free rooms they earned, stop giving you food, handouts, etc.

      Or you could stop accepting all of these "gifts". Stop accepting the gifts and then you could claim that you don't need the help to get by. Then you would earn the right to be high and mighty on everything.

      backpack Steve should get a job. he is a great example of someone who only takes from society and never gives back. From what I've read, he is a degenerate leech. I don't know much about pokermonkey so I can't comment.

      Stop acting like you would work a job if you could. Your lack of replies to Jennifer lead me to believe you never would've taken the job with Clint.

      You don't want to work a real job. I get it. You'd rather make gambling your entire life focus. That's fine. It's your decision to do that. However, don't act otherwise and by all means don't act like your entitled to any help from anybody in any fashion. You are the one making these choices!

      also, enough tatude bashing. You can disagree on whether he is doing what is best for tony, but you have to agree his heart is in the right place.

      this blog format still sux! This is my last post here till something changes. Not a threat (like it matters) just an FYI because I can't keep up with comments here.

      PS. I don't care either way if anybody gives Tony gifts or assistance. That's a personal decision. he has no more right to that help than anybody else though. However, doing it out of friendship is fine. Your call obviously

      Delete
    5. Thanks for spelling it out Tony. I withdraw my offer of assistance. If you have no desire to do anything to better yourself, to be anything more than a homeless, degenerate gambler who panhandles and begs for scraps then who am I to try to interfere?

      I don't know why I bothered. This makes.. what.. four or five years now that I've lurked, occasionally posting; every time with the idea that maybe you're fed up enough that you're ready to actually accept help to make a difference.

      Your view of the world is absolutely warped, Tony. You are truly handicapped, and not even in the ways you believe yourself to be. Because of your nearsighted bigotry, you're failing to see that soon you will be a very old, very sick man. You will never have held a job, so you won't have any income. You're STILL able to get hired. You could find part time day labor work, and make SOMETHING to supplement yourself. As it is, you need to make sure that one of your readers has your password to your beloved blog. Why?

      Because someday, the posts will stop. They'll stop because you'll drop dead, of some infection or undiagnosed ailment.. or maybe because you'll be beaten to a pulp when you piss off the wrong person who is also down on their luck. And you'll need a trusted friend to bind all this together and put it into a book, and ship the funds to your son. Maybe then, you can actually do something worthwhile with your life. Instead of just sponging off society, maybe the sheer entertainment value of the blinders you wear will make life easier for your son.

      I don't mean to be so morbid. I just wish I could shake you. Your life doesn't get any easier from here on out. It only gets harder. You don't run your roll up to $50K. People stop paying your bills. You never get a girl. You don't get a permanent apartment.

      You're always eating beans out of a can, begging for "stakes", and lamenting how the world has been so awful to someone so Godly and superior such as yourself.

      The reason you have so many followers, and even a small handful of real friends, is because its human nature for us to fight for the underdog. Even when the underdog is a prick. Its the plotline of every TV show, every movie, every country western song. We want to find out in the end that you make it, that maybe you are just a misunderstood, good natured, loveable Autistic. We need a reality check just as much as you do.

      Its sort of like spending $10,000 on surgeries to patch up the pit bull who was torn apart fighting just because he came from a bad home. Instead, the $10K could have saved 10,000 far less hopeless cases and genuinely made a blip in the adoptable pet crisis. But advocacy groups will spend the $10K every time. We're all JUST as bad. You sir, are the epitome of a lost cause. Simply because you won't listen, refuse to see, and have a complete and utter inability to accept help.

      Your story doesn't have a happy ending. But you won't see it until the very last minute. You'll lament every juncture at which you could have changed your life and didn't, and eventually it WILL be too late. Every single one of us dies alone. You know that? You're no different.

      I'm angry. And sad for you. I won't be posting anymore for a long while, though I'll still be reading.

    6. cntd. from my earlier post. It made me break it up, because my rage filled rant was too lengthy. :(

      Because all you seem to understand (ironically), is the idiocy behind heavily structured religion (I'm Christian, just not a nutball). So here is a joke, of which the moral will be completely lost on you. In all your "intelligence", you're simply not very smart.

      God Helps Those Who..


      A terrible hurricane blew in, down near Biloxi. The water started rising and officers of the law drove around in large trucks, knocking on doors, pleading with the remaining residents to evacuate. One old man said.. "No Thank You, God will provide. He will save me." The officers left.

      The water continued to rise. The man went to the second story of his home to avoid the flood and shortly a boat came by. Pleading with the man to evacuate, the people on the boat made room for him to join them. The man said "Thank you, but no. God will take care of me."

      Soon, the man was on the roof. The water was rising quickly, and though he saw his death looming.. the man was calm. A helicopter broke the silence of the sky, dropped a ladder down. The man refused the help of his rescuers "God will take care of me!". The helicopter left.

      The man, now dead, made his way to the pearly gates of heaven where St. Peter stood with his heavy book. "Ahh, we've been expecting you!" he said. The man, sad and confused said, "I'd like to have a word with God." St. Peter parted the gates and ushered the man forward towards his maker. The man, when faced with God said "I was a good Christian! I always believed in you! I had faith you would save me! Why did you let me die?"

      God replied "My son, I sent a truck, a boat and a helicopter. What more could I have done?".


      You won't get it, but the point is valid. Take care, Tony. And best of luck. You'll need it.

      (And pokermonkey is a very good friend of mine, so I'd like to go on record as saying that he HAS looked for and taken additional work when things were going bad in poker. He has NEVER asked for loans or handouts. He's an amazing father, a hard worker, and he deserves the good things that come his way. There are a lot of things Tony, that people don't put on the internet. Monk has held more jobs than you've played VBJ machines, in his life. And now he's very close to paying cash for his SECOND gulf coast home for him, his beautiful wife, and daughter. You, as usual, have NO idea what you're talking about.)

    7. Great posts, JG. He simply won't get them.

      Obviously, he's not going to live a long life with his lifestyle, but can you imagine what his life would be like if he actually reached 65+. He won't be able to collect SS or Medicare benefits because he has never paid into the system. Obviously, he could get whatever scraps Medicaid will give him. And SSI Disability if he got off his lazy butt to get that.

      But he's basically going to have to live in flophouses and beg for the rest of his life. Or grind machines & poker games for 12+ hours a day. If he can still find places where he isn't banned from when he's that old. And that doesn't even take into account when he starts to get sick and run down physically & mentally to where he can't even grind anymore.

      I don't understand how he can not have a life plan. I don't even think it's the Autism. Or at least the Autistic person I worked with in the past was an exception because he had a plan for his life and was very successful in his career as a 4th level technical support engineer. But, while social situations where a challenge, he could at least manage his life and earn money to survive and invest into his future.


      Tony's just too far gone. He's never going to have a good life.

    9. Very well said Jennifer. You tried so hard to help Tony. I know from past experience how hard and frustrating it can be. Sadly Tony only takes on board what he wants to see, hear or do. Anything else which involves constructive comments or criticisms, he just ignores.

      I enjoyed our dinner evening with Grump when I was in Las Vegqs last year. Hope you have a wonderful experience when your baby arrives. Good luck and take care.

    10. Kat I'm sure Tony will miss you on his blog. Nice posts on RTP making fun of his speech. At least you'll get some much needed reaffirmation from the other misfits over there. Unfortunately you'll still the alcoholic crazy cat dude living in some shitbox apt. Hopefully mocking his speech which he can't control made you feel better. Seriously you are pretty pathetic.

      Delete
    11. Jennifer, your words are very well put. I know they will not help Tony, but they did not go to waste. They made me have a little introspection of my own life.

      Keep up the solid advice, it is more helpful than any handout... even if ignored.

  9. new roll $1234, won $24 back VBJ, and i just cannot bring myself to go into vegas with no place to live, and i sure cant bring myself to take money out of the bankroll, money thats desperately needed to live on, and use it to find housing. i dont feel like thats a responsible use of my money. I think i better stay where i am for another week (amount of comps i have) until i get housing options set up. at least now i have a way to play online poker in my room, even though im not winning a thing, $84 left on lock. ive missed the money in ALL of the mtts, and lost about $12 in cash, id be up had i ONLY played don sngs. still its a great way to get mtt experience and my sample size is way too small to be up on mtts yet.

    also im quite pleased im not losing big like i thought i would with cutters system of only playing 1 hand. today i actually was free finally to quit using his system since i was no longer staying in his room, and yet i ended up using the system anyway because i actually got to feeling like my chances of winning were better with it than with my system, simply because his system was closer to Kimlees chart. His system requires bets of certain amounts and doesnt give any possibility of doing any martingaling of hands on plus counts. (although the spread isnt nearly as wide as it should be if i had a larger roll). or maybe ive just been lucky. i was lucky to get $50 on that wheel spin this afternoon, thats for sure.

    i do feel like after this week is up though, i really need to get into Vegas. i wonder what Kat and other riviera players recommended the min roll needed is to not go broke $50 at a time getting the free rooms there? and i dont think buying in short in a NON aces cracked game a good idea for me, because i dont play as well buying in the min as i do buying in $200. and if i buyin too high, i still dont play as well. $150-200 is the best buyin for me. That will someday change of course. now in aces cracked, u better buyin as little as possible so u come out ahead. but of course if aces cracked pays less than $100, u should ignore the aa cracked and find another casino to play it in.

      Doesn't matter what it pays, you shouldn't be playing somewhere just for a promotion such as this. If you are playing and hit it then it's a bonus but you shouldn't buy in short and try to work really hard to get your aces cracked for the chance at a bonus... that doesn't make sense to me.

UP emailed me and told me absolutely NO ONE in NV is able to get on who pays for a monthly broadband card from ANY internet modem company. they said they are looking into solutions, but their hands are tied due to having to follow NV gaming regulations. seems the gaming regulations require u to go someone else to use free wifi or to have a home address with a wired cable modem.

  11. Wal-Mart, Tony. Not Wal-Marts...Wal-Mart.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Let me be absolutely clear here.

    Helping you is NOT the main reason I'm in Vegas. You are about #18 on my list of things to do, and #4 on my list of persons to see. I thought if I could help you out by bringing you some different kinds of food you can't get in Jean, then I would do that, and that only. I don't want to spend the day ferrying you around to Vegas and then back to Jean. I don't want to take you to Buffalo Bills and sit at the poker table with you, and I'm certainly not going to buy you a USB modem. Going to walmarts on my vacation, then driving out to Jean is a 2-3 hour imposition enough, but making further demands on me is pushing it too far. I do get that you waited till the last day to accept this offer because you didn't know where you'd be; I get that. I'm a little disappointed that you are not wanting more variety of yummy food, but instead request the same crap you can get anywhere like off-brand Doritos, so I'm less inclined to make the effort for just Doritos, but I guess that's not my business.

    So what's it gonna be, Tony? Give me a day and time and I'll work you into the schedule.

    And Tatude, man, I'm not knocking you and your efforts to help Tony. I don't WANT to go out of my way here, but I'm WILLING. If you WANT to do it, then I'll bow out and let you, that's all. You're obviously closer to him than I am and a better person as well (that's NOT being snide either). There are better things to do in Vegas, and when Tony wants to push my offer from 2 hours to 6 hours, then I'm about to take it off the table and let you take care of this matter.

  13. Tony:

    http://www.lacsn.org/contact-us

    Your follow through is simply not going to cut it. THIS IS YOUR LIFE. You said there is no way to leave a msg with the legal services center. You are wrong. They tell you exactly what extension to select (#4, as the directions state, is the extension for SSI claims) and after that, they tell you what to push if you're a new client (#2). You can then leave a msg and they will contact you within 2 business days.

    That took 5 minutes out of my life. I have no need *yet* for SSI, yet I took 5 minutes to see if I could reach them or see if I could help you solve your unsolvable problem. You have every reason to be persistent and search every nook and cranny for that info. and you didn't take the time to follow through. Why? THIS IS YOUR LIFE. TAKE OWNERSHIP.

    It's frustrating, Tony. It's frustrating when it seems as if others are putting more effort into helping you than you are to helping yourself.

    Call them. Call them multiple times. Their voice mail sometimes fills up (it's pro-bono, so they have limited staff). Keep calling back, multiple times per day. You'll eventually reach the voicemail and you can leave a msg.

    Or...don't. But don't complain about no legal aid being available when it's there if you would put in more than the slightest effort. And don't keep asking if anyone can find you a lawyer - YOU can find YOU a lawyer. Take the time to do so. Be an active agent in your own life, Tony.

    5. Tony:

      It took me 3 tries to figure out that wasn't true. How many times did you try?

      That's the point. Knowing whether that line worked did not impact me at all. It didn't help me one bit to know that, and yet I tried 3 times to find out. That information has a significant impact on your comfort and could very well be the difference between life and death for you - - - and yet I'm guessing you didn't try more than 3 times to make that call. Did you try more than once?

      When something has a significant impact on your life, you need to take charge of it. You need to follow through and work hard on it. Be an active agent for your own good. That's the point, Tony.

      s.i.

      p.s. - yes, thank god for ags, as you would not have got the job done on your own. And what a shame that would/could have been.

  14. JG and SI will be glad to hear i have an appt for june 28th at 2pm with a legal aid attorny, thanks to Agsweep calling Ingrid there somehow knowing how to get thru, (being an attorny herself) and getting me the number to Ingrid's direct line. (a different number). so i called Ingrid today, left a message, she called me back, and now i have an appt. agsweep talked to Ingrid live somehow and explained what was going on with my housing and ssi situation and they said they could probably take my case, and if there is any back pay they only take 25%. they dont know how the fact i still owe ssi will work out, its a new situation for them. I still need to get Vince to give me that letter he got from SSI though.

    1. This is indeed great news. I personally can't stand trying to navigate those automated phone calls.

      Agsweep - you really did Tony a big favor and I know he appreciates it.

      Now that he has a date and time - June 28th at 2pm, can either Seattle Irish or Jennifer Gay help him out with a ride?

      Jennifer, I can understand your frustration, believe me. Been there. I totally get it. At least this is a step in the right direction but if you're too frustrated to keep your offer on the table, that's okay.

    2. Tony,

      Isn't it good to have a plan and a goal to work toward? Your plan is to keep this appointment in Vegas and your goal should be to very carefully increase your roll before the 28th so you'll have as much $$ as possible for poker while in Vegas.

      This is not the time for monkey tilting. I know you can do it. Good luck!

  15. new roll $1302, won a little at VBJ earlier, and Cutter says if i want, he can take me up to boulder hwy tomorrow night, no idea yet on rooms though, he didnt say. today i paid for another week here til next monday, of course i can always check out early and get the comp dollars back of course. still cant promise anything with zippy, because im not sure if ill be in Jean or not, and i sure wouldnt be needing the food if i was in vegas. thank God the roll has gone up the last 2 days though, because if i end up in vegas playing omaha ill certainly need every bit of that, and it still needs to be at least twice that. also its nice to hear u can get rooms at Vdara for $109 with a washer and dryer, is it ever lower? ill check on that someday when i have a lot of money again. i have paid up to $169 a night for rooms before when i had money, on boats in baton rouge and council bluffs,horseshoe cleveland radisson, etc

  16. WHY are you playing VBJ?
    You have enough money for VBJ but not poker or food or housing?
    Weird.

    1. its obvious why im playing VBJ, not only is there nothing else here in Jean, but for every 30c i lose, im gaining $1 comps. and thats without counting, with counting, its much better. (thats over the long run of course). essentialy $40 a week in losses provides $105 in comps for the room for a week, far cheaper than housing in vegas.

      the goal is to win back the $40 by counting, making it totally free. if i was NOT playing VBJ, id have nowhere to stay at all til i had enough money saved up to pay for it. People who gamble for a living always are forced to put their bankroll over any mundane expenses like shelter, food, etc. thats why it is a hard life without a big bankroll, or a ton of friends who truly care about ur wellbeing.

      the reason i am hated is when i had money, instead of doing things for those friends who mightve not wanted anything in return and didnt financially need it, i looked for others as poor and as smart as me as far as not spending money foolishly. and tried to get them into games, most ending up ripping me off.

    2. "the reason i am hated is...."

      Solely due to yourself Tony, solely due to your attitude, complete laziness, sense of absolute entitlement, and the only person that matters is Tony Tony Tony Tony, and not a single other person including your Son and Mother.

      I would guess some people do not think you have a single redeeming quality as a human being and likely many feel you deserve nothing better than a place on the street groveling in the dirt. Some also probably think that karma should catch up to you soon and hope you go broke and disappear from the internet forever.

      Many have written you off as a lost cause with no hope of making anything of himself.


      You are your own worst enemy in this matter and the way some/many/majority people feel about you. You are just not smart enough to realize how much the tide would turn if you changed your laziness factor in the smallest way, and just STARTED listening to what some of the people like s.i., Lightning, Jenifer are telling you in regards to 'job' 'counseling', etc.

      No matter what you do, you likely would always have a couple holdouts who 'hate you', but that is the nature of the internet and people. But the funny, sad, frustrating, stupid thing, is you have zero idea what riches would flow your way in terms of help, assistance, love, encouragement if you listen to what dozens of much smarter people than you have been advising for years. Why do you think most of your previous biggest backers have changed their tune dramatically and told you to look at providing for yourself by getting a job or at least seriously look into it in various ways? Why do you think most of your previous biggest backers call you a degenerate, addicted gambler?

      If you think it is any of the silly reasons you post above, or any of the reasons your 'little voices' tell you in your brain, you are fooling yourself.

      I am guessing the vast majority of readers hope you can make some change (that most realize is probably pretty hopeless by now) in your life, somehow, someway.

      It is now totally in your lap. DO you want to be known as the guy who entertains hundreds with stupid things he says and does (with the corresponding majority who think little of you as a human) OR A guy who made the hard choices to finally lift himself off the street and look homelessness in the rear-view mirror forever?

      No doubt it is hard for you, the hardest thing you have ever done in 45 years of life. You have placed yourself in a unique position among bums by generating quite a following over the years, and you still have time to cash in on this. You still have some great people who are willing to assist you.

      Hopefully something will click in that dense head sometime soon so that you may move forward in a positive light. Your current path is going nowhere, the handouts will not last forever it seems. You have wasted years now, your opportunities to 'make it' are going to dwindle as time goes on. You probably do not deserve it, but you have been given more chances that probably anyone else in your position. I am sure many of your friends are saying over and over 'One Time Tony, One Time'

  17. will end up seeing Cutter later tonight between 7 and 9pm instead of tatude, Cutter will see about a room at orleans or samstown. problem is id probably need to go right back to Jean for this weekend, so i guess i will end up using Zippys food. just wish i had a lot less to cart around. roll is at $1320, won a little on VBJ although the lock poker money is going down. i think i might need to wait for better online sites to open up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. most of zippys food he did a good job selecting except he didnt know i dont like pineapple. its a lot to store if i go into vegas with cutter and he gets me a room 1 night at orleans. Remember i still got some of Chad's food too, but not much.

    Now i wish id ate more of Chads food and saved that last $14 in comps on the buffet, but sometimes u just need to eat a good meal.

    2. 1 suitcase, need more, and with wheels. also got the wrong kind of bags, i need bigger sized bags, the kind a casino coat check will accept. not the kind of grocery bags they can see carry stuff a homeless person would carry. 30+ shirts, many of which should be discarded. thats why they were bought in thrift shops.

  20. That was very nice of Zippy to bring you out food while he's on vacation. If you're happy where you are at that's great. Some folks including me would go nuts out there but if you like it that's great. Nice of agweep to help you out. Making that appointment should be a priority. Vook thanks for speaking up. I've been taking hits for years lol so doesn't bother me if a complete stranger doesn't like me. Says more about them than me if they can't find something better to do. I'm certainly not worth the effort but knock yourselves out. Just try to keep it semi accurate. Anyway Tony ill try to meet up with you but looking at neighborhoods out here so a bit busy.

  21. Yes, I am reading Tony. The food was no problem and I would be happy to do it again sometime. There is a possibility I might be coming back to Vegas in August. I will let you know.

    3. i was afraid to ask for too much, so i decided id be happy with $7.50 worth of bitcoin instead of $8 worth. besides it probably was $8 worth, bitcoin is a little over $100 but not much. good news is the final $14 i was down to on lock yesterday is now back up to $88 and id have more than the original deposit if u count the $20 i sold.

      original deposit was $40 bankofamerica, for which i got $100 of lock

  27. won $22 VBJ, now playing online from room, too complicated to go into vegas, cannot be constantly moving and worrying about being without rooms on weekends, got no choice but to stay where i am if i dont want them sold out weekends. might get to play cards with SI this weekend, not sure yet. new roll $1353. still havent seem TF, and tatude has no time to play poker.

  28. Tony,

    Now that you have your roll up to $1353, it would be a good time to pay your internet and phone bills.

    Please don't say that you can't afford to, and that you need all your money for food and accomodation. That is just bullshit and you know it. You and everyone else here knows that the real reason why you won't spend any money on paying your bills,
    is because what you really want your money for is to gamble and nothing else.

    Do something constructive with your money for once in your life. Please pay your bills.

    Koala
