sitting here in the lobby near the center bar at pechanga, where the internet works great and they have all the open tables a few near plugins. theres a song playing over the intercom that keeps repeating i cant, i cant, i cant stand losing, which is a great thing to play while in a casino. and i realize for all my problems im one lucky MF SOB.
u see i woke up at the spa yesterday evening at commerce with inadequate sleep, (only about 6 hours or less) and couldnt get back to sleep. so i left to where the net worked, downstairs in the hotel lobby, and was on the net so long reading RTP and replying to comments there and on the blog (some people post way too many, and others dont post nearly often enough) i didnt get done til after 8pm. i finally tried to lay back down later to sleep, but i no longer had the spa all to myself like i had for most of the day (happens a lot more than ud expect) and i just couldnt sleep. so i went to go play poker, and i made the mistake of sitting in the $4-8 omaha.
it really frustrates me to no end all the rich people in LA with money make all the omaha games $4-8 and up just because they dont like to play small. my God, u would think theres no poor people in LA. the fact no $2-4 games exist annoy the hell out of me but they dont annoy no one else because no one else has a roll as low as me who plays professionally. but if they existed the bankroll needed to beat the game would be sliced in half and although the game would no longer be worth $16 an hour $10 an hour could be achieved easily enough still.
so anyone in less than 5-10 hands (played hands that is) i was already out $120 and not in a happy mood at all anymore. Spencer definitely knows his stuff in how variance works in that game since he has so much experience. but if i just had the roll i still feel it fits my style better than any other game. i guess thats why i came to Pechanga, (wanted to play it where its$3-6) big wins are possible in omaha cause i made $500 at Pechanga in the later session after the $200 loss in the early session last wednesday.
Being stuck that when i left the omaha caused me to not play $40 NL my best, and i lost a bit more, and was down a lot when i went and posted on RTP once last night i think to $1067. later i won a bit in $4-8 stud, played some more NL, and had recovered to $1137 when i left commerce.
was dead tired, trying to sleep on 2 city buses, and then on a tour bus where i slept about 90 minutes. im still really tired now and not sure what to do. am afraid ill forget my cell phone is being charged at the desk in the poker room.
walked in, realized today is the freeroll day again with the afternoon splash pots promotion im missing out on sitting here typing. wed is by far the best day to be here. so i know everyone will be quitting the cash game very quickly to play the first morning freeroll at 11am. for those with play time in earlier in the morning, too early for me to qualify. so im on tilt more now.
quickly lost the $40, and rebought $29, and started winning, too tired to remember the hands except for one near the end where i had 88, called $10 preflop, and the flop was 456 the lady who raised and was shortstacked went allin, i called, and the deepstacked guy who was hitting everything called behind me. turn comes 7 and i shove, he calls and i wanted him to fold fearing he would hit the river, but he was drawing dead with a3 and then i suddenly had $285 in chips. had only $113 at the start of the hand. cant remember what i won the earlier pot with.
i do remember a guy raising to $7 preflop, me folding a5 diamonds, and flopping the nut flush had i stayed and then 2 guys going at it putting in $100 more on the flop, turn and river each street for a pot of about $300-400 and of course id had the nuts all the way if id seen the flop. so i had the potential where i couldve won really huge.
right at the end i gave back about $60 on a hand and ive forgotten that hand too, im really too tired to do anything and have no business playing once i finish this blog post. hate to go here and NOT PLAY--but maybe i should just grab the first shuttle out of here and get some rest. thank God i am back to $1234, i couldve so easily been down to under $1000.
guess im doing better than i was a week or so ago in cali but my God my life is so stressful its amazing i dont have a heart attack. such an emotional roller coaster, thinking of taking a break in vegas for a few days just to be able to afford a room and relax.
