the first 2-3 days were great, when i woke up this morning, i was at exactly even for the VBJ, and had got 3 days room, then i went down to start earning the $45 in needed comps for fri and saturdays room, one of which was due by 11am today, and i knew that was going to be awful hard to get in so much play with so little money in such a short period of time, and no sign on Cutter or Benny here to help in any way with rooms.
And i never heard from the guy posting as the Chaperone who said he wanted to post here instead of RTP, no one brought any pants, (vince might be over tonight) except the pairs of pants i got from NCKPA in sacramento which surprisingly included 2 pairs of socks in todays mail. they are very nice, very welcomed and thanks a ton. still got no clean shirts yet til i see vince. Chaperone said he would be by with pants, but i seriously dont think the guy who made that post was him. get on RTP and ask him and find out. I see Josies done a good job of approving some comments.
Josie called me (when i was out desperately attempting to get out of the hole without success) and i found a VM on my room phone upon my return saying she would call back at a specific time, 5pm or 8pm, but hopefully 5pm my time works out better. it was to get my new blog post. Sad to say im now stuck another $10, had to pay to get online. and heres why, i had no way to type the blog post. u see, i dont have microsoft word, to use the program u must pay for it, i didnt realize that when i tested the version that comes on it, now since ive tested it, i cant get back in it without paying. and i need to ALWAYS leave this page up when closing the laptop, so there will be an open page to type in, even if not online webpages usually stay up even when no longer refreshed live. or at least leave up some open big blank space available to type into.
wondering if theres free versions of things similar to microsoft word, probably but too busy to look now. got to finish this blog and read the next 382730 pages of RTP first, twittter, etc.
i refrained from any max but buttons, or any bets over $17 per spot. but the more i got stuck, the more rules i broke. the worst bets i made were betting 5 spots a bunch of times, ive forgotten the chart and cant no longer look it up by phone, and the other rule i broke was betting more than 1 spot $1 on negative counts. i remember Kimlees old chart saying to still bet up to $4 til the count hits minus 4, so i was still betting multiple spots of $1-2 with slight negative counts of minus1 or minus2, with the exception of no more than 3 spots of $2, not 5, since i was stuck and needed so many comps. i finally have fridays room paid, and $26 worth of the $30 needed for saturdays. of course nothing to eat as usual and no comps to spare there, no more food tix, so i got the $2 bag of chips in the gas station.
and the 3rd bad habit was betting too much on even counts off the top of new shoes, often i did like 3 bets of $6-10 because i was stuck and wanted to get a bet out before it went negative.
that being said i dont think all of that costs much EV at least not if u need comps. im sure it would cost a lot of EV if u didnt need the comps. but the original charts were far more liberal if u need comps. i remember when Kimlee made the chart, chaperone said id quickly have all comps and no cash if i followed it, so Kimlee made a new chart.
for about $7500 in total ran thru the VBJ since coming to jean, i am now out---$243. new roll barely in the $1300s after expenses such as wifi, charger, etc. thats quite a bit for 5 days hotel.
so as the title suggests, the plan never was to be here forever. at least not with this little money, if im going to be here long term, i need online poker money, full internet functioning, and preferably $2500 so i stay over $2000 and have a better spread.
so what that means is i need to get back to cali. now i have an email offer of a free $100 in vegas with 3 nights i want to see about. also i heard the stratosphere installed a VBJ machine like the one in Jean, but i highly doubt it i guess ill need to check though. the offer expires on sept 30.
maybe vince will take me into vegas, then i dont need to worry about tomorrows room. also a good reason to be out of here is to go where theres wifi. but i really need to be where i can beat the game and i only see that happening at the commerce. still the same sleeping arrangements there, as long as ill still have enough to beat the game. rolls shortened up so much with todays loss i dunno whats gonna happen.
and once i get offline, ill take a shower, and try out the new pants and socks. until i read RTP i wont know if another package is on the way already. i havent looked at RTP yet because i wanted the blog done first, it was by far the most important reason to pay $10 to get online. this is unsustainable, yesterday i had no net at all, i just cant afford to keep paying the $10 that often
