If it makes anyone feel any better, i agree im better off living in Vegas instead of Jean. Just worry about paying for housing is all

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

  2. since this was first typed, i am happy to report i turned on a virgin mobile phone over the web for $30, need to call them and find out why i cant get texts to work once its normal business hours, and sad to say im down $107 more on top of that because i lost in tonights $2-6 spread at texas. also lightning never showed up, and then i ended up renting a place for a week, and there went another $164. im going broke fast and really want to get UP up and running

  3. And the dream lives on. This is now painful to follow. Tony, you need to rethink your life and try another plan.

  4. This is good you have a week with a place to stay. Now make it your goal to rent it next week. Grind for that then we will work on the next goal.

  6. Tony it was fun hanging out with you and going all over playing poker. I am glad that you decided to get a place in Vegas and start grinding up. Don't let a couple bad sessions sway you, I know that you play poker well and can beat the games. Stay discipline look for good games take advantage of all you free play and keep paying for a weekly.

  7. im in the Havana Lounge at Boulder station playing on UP, and i need to find a weekly with working internet AT HOME that dont cost extra for this. that way i avoid having to sit in a very uncomfortable chair around other people. if anyone has any better ideas about where to go in Vegas to get on UP, where they really enjoy doing it and feel comforable near an electrical plugin and NOT at their house, tell me where. or any ideas on which weekly to rent. also i need a ton of things people need when first moving into an apt, if anyone can help let me know.

  8. i am counting the $100 i deposited on UP as part of my bankroll, new balance is $926, also counting all other monies except for the 220 seals that i think is worth about $30 since bitcoin is so high. am hoping lightning shows up later, he has my phone but said once he didnt get my call, and the phones on the floor charging next to me. (by the outlet) seems i have 24 of the 1000 Xp so far. im not sure if im doing the right thing by continually paying for rooms and playing on UP til im totally broke with a roll of $0 in 3 weeks or so and id really like those things Greg stored if he really did, i never heard from him since except for a comment or 2 on facebook posts back and forth to my mom

    1. well u told us about vince's situation with his roommate mayb not being able to pay the rent? r u really that shocked? also, lightning losing isnt too much laundry . i am sure he would of told us in his blog.i am more interested in the roadtrip from jean and also if tony thinks he can really grind out on UP.like how long does it take to withdraw and forms that UP needs to get u paid. i had trouble with sportsbook.com bcuz i still have a florida dl but i am in colorado. so 4 now i am just leaving it in there . just a couple hundred but if i ever win there 125k sunday main event. then i will pursuit it but for now just letting it grow.

  14. You know how XP are earned right?
    It's 10XP per $1 in rake you pay.

    Why won't you tell me your screen name so I can play your table? I thought you like to play with your readers.

    1. tell me YOUR screen name too, and let me somehow verify its ur name, and i will. im just tired of people knowing its me, and me not knowing its them in return. it makes it much harder to win if they know its me, and i dont know its you.

      How can u still play on UP? u here in town for good from fl?

  15. It sucks that your offer was bogus for that free play. Good that you made $50 on up yesterday. Are you playing 2 tables at once? You really should be able to clear about 25xp per table per hour so if you 2 table it's around 20 hours to get the $100 bonus. Now is the time to be playing in the day time. Get in your 10 hours from noon to midnight when the games will be the softest.

  18. up to 165 XP now, and a roll of $838. very little food in here and dont want to buy anything til i get my pans and silverware, pizza pan etc back from Vince. should be sometime tomorrow night, cannot yet reach MIB. i dont really think i should ever leave the room at all, need to probably put in 12-14 hour days on the net to try and clear a min of $40 per day, and i dont know if thats realistically sustainable longterm only putting in 12 hours on UP. if they, or any other legal online NV site would just include omaha8 and regular omaha, maybe it could be. wonder what wsop2007 is averaging a day, or mc gee. which other blog readers are putting in a ton of hours on there im unaware of? stump maybe?

    2. Tony,

      14hrs a day for $40 is 2.86/hr. Is this really what you want for your time. There are thousands of jobs you could get today for 3x that easily.

      Then you could play poker for decent stakes that mean something when you are not at work?

      Why is this a no for you?

  19. id really like to know how big my chipstack on UP needs to be to make sure i run. maybe $25+ or maybe i dont have to for sure til it passes $30? with this low of bankroll i should try to keep 40 buyins on UP. i was told to stick to 10c-25c and try to avoid other levels.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You should stick to the limit that your playing and leave the table if there are bigger stacks that are putting pressure on you. Making $40 a day is a very realistic goal if you put in the time. Play two tables for an hour and then take a break for 15 min. And then start again if you do that 8 to 10 times a day you should have no problem clearing enough money to pay your rent every week. Your goal in the game should be to stack the guys playing $10 or less people who have bigger stacks like $30 or $40 are not going to try to get it in against you if you are also deep without a made hand. If you really want a rule then just quit every time you get to $30 and then play again later. You also should be clearing a couple hundred Xp a day not only 100 sounds like you didn't put in very many hands today.
