yeah, i was really counting on saving up enough money for POKER from that job that fell through. no other job would pay anywhere close that kind of money and wouldnt be enough to live off of which is why i havent taken a different one. That, and of course, that id never be offered one. Maybe WEC can hook me up with his father and see if he has one that pays enough?
new roll $1014, small win put me back on the right side of $1000. but im tired of playing this, really wish i had the money to get back into poker. seals sucks big time as far as poor game selection if u prefer playing with more than 6, and of course, i cant get on UP. and ive got less than 150 seals left. Had i managed to save up decent money in Boise, i changed my mind about coming back to Jean to play the VBJ. id wanted $5000 minimum to live on, food, cabs, busses, phone, internet, rent, etc...and $10k min for poker. either 50 buyins of $200, 40 buyins of $250, or 33 buyins of $300 depending on which poker room id be playing in that day.
biggest changes id make are no more doing without a long term apt, (causing me to make lots of poor choices without stability) no longer ever buying in only $50 or $100 (be proud of me WEC) and buyin in for $200-300 at all times, (some rooms cap it at $200). Buying in full on the first buyin helps to stop martingaling of buyins, and allows me to play with more money when im at my best (which is before i get stuck).
and of course the biggest change, no more VBJ even money at the wynn, or P-ho. no more video poker 96-97% payback flamingo and the IP. if i was in vegas now that i know about the VBJ in circus same as Jean but without the great comps, id just go over there if i felt like playing.
i fear as small as my roll is, without enough to work with online and a way to win online, ill eventually go busted here, and thats not a very good feeling. u see, McGee is right, should really be capping the bet at 1/200th instead of 1% and that would mean $5 instead of $10 but it wouldnt be a wide enough spread with this low of roll. i need an online site as good as stars was, with the huge volume of players and game selection, and at least $300 on the site. will any NV online site ever be that good and a valid option for me?
i hear the goldspike downtown has free wifi that works and they removed the casino, and now anyone can sit in there all day with their laptop. theres a website online that shows pictures of how its been remodeled, someone go and check it out whose downtown. used to be no place downtown had free wifi but the donut shop at fitz that always wanted u to buy something and was very small.
am hoping lightning and i can play some poker at texas or suncoast. i cant afford hardly any games in vegas, but i just want to play something where i have a chance at winning more than 25c an hour. especially since im almost broke on seals and have no way to redeposit. costs too much. i would live there and sleep outdoors just to play poker if i had a safe place to do it in a sleeping bag where id never have to worry about being assualted in my sleep, and a game like in the old days of the early 1990s where u could play $1-5 no ante, no jackpot drop. had the game selection been as poor then as it is now, id have constantly been broke and spent a much bigger percentage of my time panhandling than playing poker. i wish i could remember my life from like 1990-2000 i remember hardly nothing except going to visit sue every day for a couple years early on.
wondering how Mc Gee, John, pokerJohnny and Greg feel about that job in idaho now that Clint no longer has anything to do with the job, were any of them counting on it? some of them with the experience might still be able to get the job even though someone totally different will be doing the hiring and running it from another company.
and i might need food from zippy after all, but its too early to tell where ill be. am too broke to eat anything. did Claudia decide to not deal the WSOP this year because she was afraid she might run into me? i dont know but its odd.
