Well, Nick is gone now, he went home to cali this morning, so i wont have him around anymore to help with rides and incidentals. and im not yet sure when lightning can make it here without a phone, (cant use the room phone to call numbers that arent local) so im waiting to hear back from Josie. But i am better off than i was the other day when i left Jean. im up to $1189, got 3 clean pants and 12 clean shirts still, some food, paid internet access good for everything but UP up til oct 2, and a decent size suitcase from Vinces house i had already to squeeze most of these things into.
so lightning will not have to take me roundtrip and that should make him happy. only 1 way into vegas, to get a room for a week on boulder hwy, and then to play poker at clubfortune, samstown, texas suncoast or Palms. have several offers of free play from various places way too much to not be picking up, and it cant all be picked up at once, and the first installment comes sept 5. josie too has agreed i should be living in vegas. also i want to investigate certain promos at samstown, CFC, and palms. some of the managers are nice and read the blog, and when i called samstown, the employees in the poker room running it said the free room for 4 hours was bogus.
Nick thinks i should be playing online from my room, and i agree. (or not neccessarily from the room) but in a place like tx or boulder or the gold spike downtown vegas with good free wifi). That way i wont miss the $100 bonus on UP, Nick won pretty good there, says the games are good, (would like to check with Mc Gee on that, miss hearing from him) and surely it wont be too long before they add omaha now. the initial deposit must be made by sept 8 and 1000xp does take some time to earn. theres also other sites i can play on from Jean, but i dont want to go thru the hassle of getting a check, (and staying here long enough to) waiting days for bitcoin deposits thru my bank, or hassles in transfers. its certainly more suitable for the meager bankroll i have, and far safer, because i wont have any $50-100 drops in a few hands getting me quite stressed out and upset. the ideal would be to not win or lose more than $40 a day yet still be able to afford a place to live.
yeah Nick really helped out a lot with expenses such as food, clothes etc while he was here and didnt mind the driving, so id really like to give him a big thank u for that. we talked about what would be best for me as far as to what i should be playing. i'm hoping i can grow the roll to over $2500 by Christmas and maintain a place to live in vegas and ill feel a lot less stressed out, i dont really think going back to the commerce is a good idea, because i think UP will be adding omaha very soon, or another site is going to go online. i think i wont get nearly as lucky at the commerce as i was the last time.
i got several casinos for lightning to pick from, and its nice he is willing to play all types of games as was nick. limit, spread limit, no limit, omaha, etc. also ive heard Chris dont manage the mirage anymore, where did he go?
am also hoping i qualify for the suncoasts sept freeroll. i cant remember if i got my hours in in june or july. if i got the hours in in june i missed the freeroll i qualified for, and if i got the hours in in July, then im good. thats another place i need to phone.
also i seen an ad for a trailer in henderson for $130 a week, nick tried to call it by phone, but couldnt reach anyone live. would like to find out the location and if its a suitable option i can afford. shady rest cabins or something, if anyones heard of it. 702-565-7688
since i owe way over $300 on the tmobile phone, too much to pay on it anytime soon, i am thinking my old virgin mobile phone i found might be the best to try and turn on. that does work to play on UP, correct? its a company they service? i think their monthly service fee is low, and all i need to do is to bring the phone within a virgin mobile store and ask.
also its nice club fortune offers free wifi, thats another place i could probably get online UP at.
last nights omaha hi game at tx station was pretty good as usual, but i only got 1 good size pot, and quit when i started giving back a lot and was back to being stuck. and nick, he plays alot more conservative than i realized, and took some bad beats. i cannot afford that omaha game eskimo clark plays in every week, but it sure is a good game, im sure miamicane would make a fortune in it if he ever wanted to play. they opened up a 2nd table sunday night that instead of being $2-6 spread limit omaha hi as usual, with overs buttons, was strictly NL omaha high, and all the overs buttons moved over there. so u could play NL from the flop. now theres a game i could do well in if i could only afford a lot of buyins. i seen one guy buying in $5000
