whoever told me to deposit money on Bovada gave me some good advice.

Ive finally won big off of nothing for a major tourny again. (entered the $20 first event of the GSPO contender series on Bovada, and ONLY because they emailed me a free tourny ticket). so i took no risk getting in it, and got into it quite late even, over 1 hour late when i finally woke up close to 2pm. Vince came home about 5am quite drunk, usually never drinks like that, and its a wonder he didnt have a bad accident on the way home, and hes glad he didnt too. Soon as he got home his roommate drove the car for him since he was in no shape too (odd he made it home) and they went to buy beer. But today hes fine and hanging out with his Gf anne again. they got back together. his roommate Jim has been losing all the time at poker most recently at the excaliber with his gf sitting behind him one day, and she just got a job as a cigarette girl in the casino. and theyve sold everything and still cant afford to pay him any rent. so hes a little depressed. all of us are struggling for money. Vinces job pays him way less than it used to pay him and he works independent contractor with Cox on commission. and this house is filled with ramen noodles.

anyway i woke up, Anne was over here too, and entered the tourny late, and started winning right off. an early double up with a well played AA in which i got the big stack to come over the top with a smaller pair and made him commit on the flop. and from there i kept slowly inching up in the money. i was really happy just to get to 18th place where payouts go way up from $66 for 19-27 to $114 for 10-18, but the big money is on the final table. 81 got paid in all.

started posting on twitter, a few friends began watching, both male and female, and eventually cashed out $906, and i mightve done even better, at one point i was up to 2nd out of 5 left. But blinds were up to 10k 20k and i was slowly getting eaten up and finally called a shove by a guy about equal to me who i think was taking advantage of my tightness. he had me beat and i couldnt hit an ace to beat him. dont remember the exact hand, but i think this was it. it was a little bit looser call than most of mine, but i did win one pot making too loose of a call, and outdrawing someones Aq with my a5.

then i was worried about cashing out, about sending documents, if id need to go to a printers and get a screened copy, and i'm also using a new debit card than the old one they had on file when i made the $20 deposit. so i called Bovada to see if i could use wu and explained that i live in NV with a LA state id.

the guy said i could because id used wu in the past years ago, but it still has to be approved and that takes 24-72 hours, so he said to keep an eye on my email next few days. and if it works, then i can pick it up at any WU office once i get my money transfer control number. hopefully they wont need any more documents etc. if nothing else i might end up having to go see if i can get a NV id made up. i know i had one in laughlin in early 2001-2004 so i should be able to get approved in spite of my citizenship issues, but im afraid to try, because KS adamantly refused to make me up an ID when mom went in with me to try to get one made. or i might have to email in the front and back of this new CC the bank gave me to replace the old one that bovada has in their old files. they had my documents way back when.

i wont get quite ALL of my winnings. theres an $80 fee for recieving a WU, and i hope im right in assuming its worth missing out on $80 to get it without delay or hassle. Vince cant get mail for me where he lives. never been sure why hes said his mailman wont do it. so i asked for $950 cash, plus the $80 fee=$1030, and that leaves $63 on Bovada so i can still grind online and play poker.

This is very important that i do this before i go home and i saw pokerdoggs comment about this on RTP. i must verify that i can pick up WU withdrawals from Bovada without issue first. for if im trying to get food stamps in KS, and get approved for SSI, we dont want them to see me getting checks from an online poker site for big sums. would screw it up. mom would make me sign up for both of that if i was living with her, and i dont want anything to screw things up and piss her off. Regardless of my feelings if its morally right or not, id have to keep her happy.

so if i get the WU, then ill know i can safely go to KS and grind. and maybe i still would fairly soon. for $654 + $950 plus whatever i spend in the next week or so isnt very much at all, not enough to find a place to live longterm in Vegas or to play $1-2 NL with. might be enough for $2-6 spread limit at samstown for next months promotion, or omaha at the suncoast, but thats about it.

right now im worried about if ill ever get this money at all, this could be a long complicated process if they want documents again. will have to look and see if i can find the docs on the computer i sent UP, or my bank statement i got at the goldstrike in Jean.

  2. So this is it, your out of vegas? Back to kc to grind online. I hope you also look for a some kind of job. This is a good move. I wonder if you will still have as many followers online. Its been an interesting read Tony thanks for 6+ years of online drama and entertainment.

  4. congrats again Tony, and I hope that you do go to Kansas after this.

    By the way, how is it possible that you don't remember the hand you bust out of the tournament just an hour ago? I find that incredible.

    1. because i was wondering if i played it the best.i think i had about 12BB left and i felt he might shove weakly expecting me to fold due all my comments in chatbox. i had like one overcard with a suited ace to his pocket pair.

    2. So, you were basically telling people you are playing scared and you can be bullied on the final table? When are you going to learn to shut up?

      I still can't believe you don't remember what pocket pair your opponent had so soon after the bust out, or what kicker you had with your suited ace.

  5. You won't have a problem with a WU from Bovada as long as your address on file and full name match the info on the ID you have. . I just cashed $1200 the same way and went to the local grocery store to get cash in hand...smooth as silk.

    1. thats the reason i called them and worry, the address i have on my state id is louisiana, and the address they have on file for me is in NV, and i dont live at either of them. But ive never have a problem using a louisiana ID to pick up a WU from others in the past at the goldstrike in Jean when i did it.

      i explained to Bovada the address they have for me is the one i have now, but im staying with a friend, but i get mail there at times, the guy on the phone was satisfied, will see what the email says im waiting on. its not in his hands. the address they have is the docs i sent before with my bank statement but not to them.

  6. Good for you Tony!

    The past few months must have been very stressful for you.

    Please think carefully about your next few moves, once you have the cash in hand. You can't afford to walk down your well-trodden path back to machine-play!

    1. maybe i should move in with Vince if he can find space for me, longterm, but if i did that, id want it fixed so i could both have a key, and get mail there. i really am missing out on casino freebies not having a mailing address. only got 1 more room offer and i cant use that til oct 11-13 for a free room 3 nights and entry into a slot tourny free. if i could afford to hang around Vegas longer, id want SI to go ahead and get me an appt

    8. You know what Tony. I am sick and fucking tired of you thinking I am gonna rip you off in some way. I keep offering my help to be nice to you. Yet every time you just spit in my damn face, I am done offering you a damn thing. As far as I am concerned I hope you go BUSTO.

    10. Do not take what TBC says personal. He is that way about EVERYONE, including Lightning at first. If you look at TBCs twitter feed, you will see him talking with Ryan and Cokeboy and AlaskaGal about coming out to Jean to take him to play poker, and he is afraid to get in the car without Stump or AlaskaGal being in the car because he dont know Ryan. If TBC wasnt so weak and unable to fight, he would not be so paranoid of everyone. Also maybe if he wasnt carrying all that Western Union money in cash.

    11. then walk . beggars cant b choosers.mayb he should deposit that money. doh.

    12. andyfezzik- I have known TBC for a couple years now so I know how he is. I just finally have become fed up with his crap. I was the guy who was with lighning and thundering when they picked him up in Jean recently

    3. lol...yeah I'm a pussy because someone is drinking & driving and risking the lives of innocent people (my sister was killed by a drunk driver) and I believe they should go to jail for doing it/it is illegal obvs. Vince might be a good guy & he deals with Tony but that doesn't give him a pass to break the law and if you don't see that then fuck you too you short,fat, bald, broke, degen, etc, pussy!

  8. Good job on the tourney cash. Don't rush to withdraw. They are charging you to withdraw 10%. And if your balance is then low and you have to redeposit, they charge 10% on the reload.

    How about entering the 150+12 later today? You need a bigger win at somepoint. Your success last night gives you a good shot at a bigger win.

    Good luck

  12. Congrats on the score Tony, i believe you had the nut flush draw when you busted A3 of hearts, you missed and his pair beat you. Tony i hope you take a one day break and clear your mind to what you really want to do. I have faith in you that you will make the rite decision this time. Take care and again congrats on the score. I was one of a few that kept telling you to play on Bovada.

    Tony the .10/.25 cash games are pretty easy money with your style of play, patience is the key and putting in the time. Yes you will get sucked out on but like i said patience is the key.

  13. Tony, congrats and enjoy the score! $1k is big money to you!

  17. I have not cashed out of Bovada yet, but have cashed a few times from other online casino's. My experience just about every time has been having to jump through ropes. They don't make it easy. Be patience and don't expect it soon.

  18. am happy to report ive PICKED UP the $950 from Bovada, and my new roll is $48 on Bovada, and $1593. Vince also had me give him a little more too. was so relieved they sent me an email with a money order control number and the name of a lady in the Phillipines and said i could go pick it up anytime, so Vince, Anne, and i went and got it.

    Now where should i go? somewhere its cheap to live obviously since playing on Bovada and getting the money off is so easy. man i wish id known a year ago i could get money off on Bodog in under 36 hours, but who had any idea its that easy and fast? i am not sure whether to go to reno, Bullhead City, or elsewhere, but i need a good poker game i can afford and beat, and cheap housing. depends on where i can get to easiest.
