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
