Goodbye to Nick (NKCPA) and Hello to John

Well  Josie and Lightning will be relieved to know ill be in the Vegas area instead of the cali area on Sept 1 sunday when he steps outta that plane. Whats not such good news is that i have nowhere near enough money to be paying by the week yet for rooms in vegas, and this is an awfully expensive holiday weekend. so expensive in fact Nick is going on back to cali tomorrow, and is going to see his gf instead of lightning. And the only place i could get a free room for fri nite, sat nite and sunday nite all 3 days for $57 total was to use up my $57 comp balance that i thought was $53, and its a good thing it was $57 instead, because that carried me for all 3 nights here in Jean.

now all i got to do is not play any VBJ, or at least to not bet more than 1 spot ever, and not to bet over $8 max no matter the count. also ive found covering up the credit meter (suggested by a reader but who?) was a good idea, when i did it my final session in Jean, i only dropped about $40 more near the end with it covered up not showing me for hours what i was up or down.

great news is i now have working internet in my room, and CHEAP. $43 for service up til Oct 2 with cricket unlimited broadband off my old modem which they no longer sell so i cannot lose it under any conditions. we went to a cricket store and i paid them.

also besides paying for my little $4-5 meals on multiple occasions, nick got me another size 34 pair of pants at walmart today for $10, so now i have one pair of pants thats not a 36. but my belt works good, the day before i paid $12 myself at goodwill for a belt and 10 shirts so i have some shirts besides the 3 clean winter heavy shirts i got at vinces i picked up.

i will really miss all the help and assistance Nick was while he was in town, glad to see lightning arriving soon so i have a way back out of Jean, and glad to see him with a car. Nick is heading to cali soon as he checks out of his room saturday 11-12am. we went to a huge shitload of different pokerrooms id never gone to without someone with a car. some of which i did great in and others i took horrible beats in.

after leaving TX station today and never seeing Mc Gee, i was still out somewhat but mostly on tilt due to the $43 cricket purchase. we went to Jean, i was worried theyd be sold out but it seems they are never sold out no matter how busy the holiday weekend and yeah i got rooms. and a much bigger relief was the cricket actually worked just like the rep said it would here in Jean.

Nick thinks i could win on UP, he said hes been winning there in the 2 days hes played on UP, and i need to make the $100 deposit before sept 8 to make the bonus offer for $100 free, but id still need a different form of internet access outside of Jean, and also a working phone. maybe i can do that at Vinces next week.

got a big scare late tonight while at buffalo bills, (their room is closing monday nite). i was stuck huge, got quite pissed when out the entire $100 won only 1 1/2 pots the whole time i was there. while the rest of the table got 10-20 pots each. looked around and couldnt find nick nowhere, had him paged, (too bad no working cell) no answer, looked for his car, found it thankfully, and finally found him sitting in Dennys eating. too bad we werent just sitting the same table, id have suggested leaving earlier and hed accepted, he didnt realize hed be eating at dennys, he thought hed be right back in the poker room, nor did he realize how badly i was doing, he assumed i bought in for $20-40 instead of $100. so he thought id want to play til closing.

another thing i think ill do is play at the palms more, now that it offers games i want and decent promos, easy weekly $3000 freeroll, aa cracked certain hours, high hands, $50-300 buyin and now $1-2 instaed of $1-3. was surprised when the manager introduced himself and said he loved my blog. lightning mike also like the palms. but i assume we will mostly be at suncoast, club fortune, texas and samstown, cant afford to play elsewhere no more after dropping so much today

  1. Tony Happy Labor Day Weekend, Tony why have you never gone to TI and spoke to management about lifting your very old ban? That promo TI has had going for awhile $599 for 60hrs of play + $2 per hr comp not a bad deal for you.

  2. Tony I will be in town this week and may be able to meet up with you later in the week. Not sure what my plans are yet. Take it easy out there in Jean, don't take a big hit to your roll playing the machine. Good to see you are not sleeping on the streets at least.

  3. Bobby loves your blog, huh?

    I wonder if that's why they switched from 1/3 to 1/2 at the Palms, just for you?

    So are you gonna play 1/2 there? And buy in for $50?

    Is that going to work?

    If you buy in so short stacked, you pretty much have to wait for a premium hand to play at all, and you could be blinded down to almost nothing waiting for that.

    And then when you do get a double up, it won't be that much.

    Plus, you won't be able to play medium to low pocket pairs, because with a short stack, you'll never be getting the right odds to hit your set.

    Or am I missing something?

  4. "glad to see lightning arriving soon so i have a way back out of Jean, and glad to see him with a car."

    I have plans for when I am in Las Vegas. Do not expect that I will be shuttling you to and fro Jean or you will be disappointed.

    6. Surely, we can come up with a plan for lightning to handle the Jean shuttle during the day and thundering can handle the shuttle at night. Maybe even throw in some BK or Del Taco too.

      That's what friends do to help other friends who are temporarily down on their luck.

  7. The other night we picked out the wedding dress my lady wants - so this put a big dent in my bankroll.

    I also went to the gym again and started hitting the weights.
    Gotta lose another 40 pounds before my wedding!

  12. Tony, how'd you get to Buffalo Bills from Jean? That's a long walk.

    Did you say somewhere Buffalo Bills is closing their poker room? You mean during the week or permanently?

    As for Sam's Town, the poker room manager just sent me all their promo's. She did mention a free hat, but nothing abut the free rooms. I think that's bogus.

    But the $599 for 125 hours of play is real.

    1. I don't think "of course" means what you think it means. It isn't a synonm for "surprisingly".

    2. does this mean you played for a while 1 spot and finished ahead or did you play one hand with a bet that is WAY over your limit?
