I'm sure more people will be waiting for him to blog his version of events, than for me to blog mine, because his will have more of the types of details others will want to read. Kind of boring to sit in my room and not be able to play online poker while i type up the new blog since i have no chips on seals and cannot get on UP, i need to ask the front desk if i am allowed to use dialup, and i also need someone to bring me the right modem to use dialup. But with a roll of only $1118 (least thats not as bad as it once was) theres no way i can deposit anything.
First thing that happened when lightning showed up was i was at a VBJ, stuck $96, and reducing the roll to $1004, and i cashed out when he came. then before we went to eat (i'd managed to get 2 free buffet tickets for the 2 of us) --now he can give u his version of the food here-- i went outside with him so we could talk away from any people, and i explained my frustrations with RTP, and he explained why me posting on there was a bad idea. discussed other frustrations also, and then we went to eat. we talked about the job, and how lightning agreed i probably wouldnt been strong enough to avoid getting fired for being unable to do the work.
after eating, i showed him what the rooms looked like. (so he could make a full trip report as to the conditions of this hotel). Then we went to tx station, because today wasnt the day the suncoast had the single $2 blind omaha game, and i couldnt afford any omaha $4-8 games with $6 per round in blinds. odd its only holdem games that have some half priced blinds in this town. (boulderstation, palacestation, and az charlies). none of the $4-8 omaha games have them, only some $4-8 holdem games. i actually think the rake is beatable if they have half priced blinds, but otherwise its not because the blinds eat u up. the suncoast was having the stud8 game, $2-10 with an ante, and i think, but not sure, $20 on the end. and lightning felt it would be too big for me, and didnt want to play stud. although he almost changed his mind as long as we waited around for seats at Tx station.
i ended up winning $32 there, and he lost his ass in that game, and went out to the sportsbook. posted on twitter, hoping someone would show, and it seems like Pokerjohnny mightve attempted to either there or elsewhere, but id left by then. we left to go to AZ charlies, mc gee had mentioned the $40 NL game at 8pm i hadnt ever played, but he didnt think it went very often, and sure enough it didnt go. in fact the game broke up entirely after 8pm after one of the dealers cashed out. good news was i quit the game $58 up. lightning did a little better in that game, breaking about even.
then we went to palace station, but it didnt work out. we sat in the $2-4 game, no $4-8 was available, but when they got around to switching us, he didnt want to play $4-8, although i tried to explain to him u lose ur money slower in $4-8 than $2-4 when they offer half priced blinds. Palace never has NL except for rare occasions on fri nites. almost never does it go. so we left and i lost $15. i dont know how he did there.
then we took valleyview up to tropicana av, by the orleans but didnt go inside, grabbed food at the burger king, he bought me this time, and then jumped on the interstate back to Jean where i crashed in the room too tired to make any posts, and kept falling back to sleep til about 7.30am.
wish id got that microwave from Greg (whitcolumn) could eat much better food here, but no way to transport it, neither of us have a car. also without a fridge it wouldnt help much because i couldnt store the right type of meals for it. but i need to think of better food items that are still just as cheap to tell zippy, black beans suck, maybe should try chili beans, and get some more wheat bread and honey to go with the peanut butter since alone peanut butter isnt so great. any other ideas on what foods at walmarts are cheap enough and will keep? maybe zippy has ideas. also some pops might be good.
and i really shouldve brought the laptop with me, that way i couldve tested to see if i could get online stations at all these casinos, etc. if i am going to play onlne poker, since seals isnt much good, and bovada makes u wait for a check and dont have enough 10 max don sngs, and i cant get on intertops, seems these newly opening NV sites are the only option.
right now im worried because i have no income coming in since i cant play poker. notice how much i won at poker yesterday, thats why i really need a place to live in vegas or reno to survive. i might feel safe with the sleeping bag in reno but not sure where the cops would allow it up there. but i might be able to play online poker in reno. really need a friend with a car to give me a free place to live in vegas, or a large loan or stake with the promise i wouldnt use it for anything but rent and poker. no machines. could use an online stake too. i am glad to discover some online low limit games in vegas might actually be beatable in spite of the drop and the rake. if i had twice the roll, id probably attempt to survive playing at the riv and getting the free rooms.
also, lightning doesnt understand why im not getting way more chances to sell ads on this blog. sometimes he gets paid for adsspace or even articles he told me about. maybe wec can assist with this, he seems to know of things of this type too.
