i'm not losing ANYTHING playing poker here in california because my skills are too good

Still holding onto $796, not one bit worse off than when i first came to california. with of course, the exception of no longer having working, phone, internet, or a laptop still of any use. And i might be missing a suitcase too. Wanted to ask her to hold it for a longer period of time that night, but was afraid she would say no.

so after leaving the spa, where i got a good shower and rest for $20 last night from 5.30pm to closing time at 11pm, i went and sat in the $4-8 omaha8 game and i was out $19 at the time the table broke. went to the $40 NL and managed to create a new blog reader. turned the $40 into $90 and immediately left.

was told the normandy the omaha8 is $3-6, but id swear on their website its $4-8. also was told thats probably the softest $40 NL game since u can buyin up to $100. was also told by players in the commerce $40 NL game the rake is a lot less at commerce than at HG and is $3.50 max at commerce and $5 elsewhere.

and of course, still have no idea where the tour bus to Jean leaves LA from. every tour company says they dont give rides to individuals just to groups.

wouldve won a lot more in the $40 NL, but due to position and bankroll considerations, folded 55 from early mid position. of course, ends up being 6 limpers, i flop a set on a flop of 345 turn a boat, and guy rivers straight with 22 and is called all the way. But both me and the good player next to me still think i played the hand well and cant worry about the results.

http://sdcommute.com/Compass_Card/CoasterDefault.aspx notice how the monthly fare is $45 instead of $182 if u get the disabled/senior fare instead of the regular fare. i've been needing for a long time to figure out how to get a disabled fare card and no one knows the process. they just say go to a dr and no doctor knows the process either. i did use to have one of those from Toledo OH thru the mental health center.

the hand i won i played well too, i was down to $29 of my $40, and an asian guy makes it $4 in EP. im the BB. 5 limpers, so i shove with AK due to my shortstack and a lot of dead money out there. asian guy calls too quick so i worry but he only has 77 another guy with a shortstack calls thats less than mine, flop is A59QA and i won.

the most annoying thing about this battery is it now takes much longer to bring up the wifi, always says its recovering from a shutdown, always says my last browsing session closed unexpectedly and wants to know if i want it brought up.  it never changes from plugged in, 7%, NOT charging.

the $40 promo for 3 hours played down at Palomar cardroom is possibly so valuable it was a mistake to leave there? i couldve done it daily for $280 a week, wonder how much of that u would give back in rake? i would think $3-6 holdem would be the worst game to play in something heavily raked, a lot more so than NL. because they get the full $5 every hand and nothing can be protected, although they still allow chopping no flop no drop. it wasnt nitty like i thought it would be those hours. is that a good promo for a tiny roll in u guys opinion?

sites like Bovada or UP are decent options if i have a way to access the site, and cashout, and a free place to live indoors. i can play a lot better lying in bed with a locked door than in a public location.

disappointed i never ever heard from Tamara, she probably never checks her email or wouldnt know it wasnt spam, being from a name she wouldnt recognize

  1. It's great that you're proud of having the skills to play breakeven poker while sleeping outdoors and going hungry.

    Also, weren't you paid over $100 for a blog advertisement in that time frame?

    1. considering i spent $45 on rooms twice, that cancels each other out, ive obviously won over $100 moore since ive spent way more than that also on busses, food and trains

    1. that already WAS the company i emailed, and they said they dont accept individuals, and that i had to have a group of 50 people or more if i wanted to charter a tour bus.

    2. i explained i was wanting to go as part of someone elses group, and then no more answer, no replies. i no longer have a phone, if anyone else wants to try to get a pickup location, feel free, the goldstrike couldnt tell me, and neither would this tour company.

      that info is really old, the nevada landing has been closed for over 5 yrs and only the goldstrike still exists.

    3. would appreciate others continually pressuring the goldstrike and the tour bus company til they come forward with this info.

    5. Okie dokie - I will take time out of my busy workday to pressure. A tour company and a casino into helping enable a homeless mentally ill autistic man's gambling addiction.

  8. Tony:

    What's the plan? You have Vince willing to let you crash at his place for a spell, and me willing to attend your intake session with you - are you going to follow through with that?

    My guess is that you're plan is to keep gambling it up until your rope gets a little shorter and you've run out of all options to keep the grind going. Is that pretty much it?

  9. Ask a cab driver to go to Jean. Then he gets a 20% stake in you for the next year. Not a bad deal.
