theres a huge bathroom inside the LVH poker room, which is nice, and some fairly decent promotions, but theyre not easy to hit. i just walked back to my room out $119 and pissed as hell. I better have another good score in the slot tourny in 40 minutes. Then i might get back $25 or so in free play, sure as hell wouldnt win the $5000 for 1st.
i wonder what RobVegasPokers report will say about the room, it might be a little nicer, although it wouldve been nice had he mentioned the bathroom. Also the Greg who deals there swears he isnt the Greg whose whitcolumn.
My counselor who gave me the shitty advice (which is why i stopped going) said to write down a diary of my feelings (she just didnt say to publish it) so here goes. am still upset Josie thinks i stopped going because i got the package, that had nothing to do with it, i just didnt think her advice was any help. (the counselors advice)
Yeah the game there is $4-8 with $1-2 blinds which isnt a bad deal. about 20 qualify for the freeroll last week for 25 hours play, and they chopped it $190 each is what Luis told me last night. Which isnt bad per hour in earning if u dont lose ur motherfucking ass trying to get the hours in like i did.
Nothing but grinders and 2 possible tourists in there, a man and a wife, and they were about the only losers besides me. and one of the riv regulars who knew me was out about $50. a lot of them most all, only are there for the freeroll. Looks like they are having the same crowd and problem as the riv.
lets start with the hand i remember best the final hand. had about $32 left. had KT clubs, called $6 preflop and the flop was AJT with a royal draw. so i raised and he reraised. turn comes 7 clubs nut flush, and i raise allin. river comes J and he says i wont like this, and im already clenching my phone and glasses so tight as im walking off i almost break them as he shows the boat. that pot wouldve really helped.
this hand was early on. i had AJ, raise preflop get one caller. flop comes A34, and he check raises me. turn comes A, (and he bets instead of trying a checkraise). so im thinking that means he thinks i have a pocket pair instead of an ace, and i just call. river he puts me allin (i was already very short off my first buyin of $40 before i rebought $79) and he has AQ.
i had KQ suited, and get raised to $6 preflop. flop comes K89 and i check/call all the way and he has AK, nothing scary comes and i dont remember the exact cards, but the 8 did pair the river.
had the same KQ suited, and flop is 233 with 4 diamonds. turn comes 9 offsuit, and i call another $8 bet. river comes J dia, i check raise, and asian girl whose the guys wife has Ace hi flush and she only calls. i thought she mightve hit flush on the river, but odds are hers is smaller and maybe she only bet cause we all check.
and im sure i lost some smaller less significant ones too. too pissed off to play anything right now, and have no time, slot tourny starts back up 3.45pm and u need to be there 10 min early. im not sure what ill play later and where i should play, but i got out of there mad as hell and came to my room to blog about it to calm myself down. and of course all everyone will do is criticize my play. probably shouldnt called KT suited for $6 but it is a limit game and i was already out over $80. i also can play on Bovada cause ive still got $22 of my last $20 deposit and its also been quite a while since i sold my last ad.
so how do i avoid getting mad? the money means way too much to me cause the stakes are so high. $119 is a ton of money if ur roll is $1435. and now its only $1316. Im lucky its that, if it wasnt for the free $100 i found on my slot card, it wouldnt be that. How can i lose that much in such a tight $4-8 game? no wonder i hate fixed limit, i think that size of a loss was very unusual?
probably i should say FUCK ALL PROMOS and just look for games with tourists? or should i be taking advantage of freerolls and promos? i get conflicting advice all the time, no idea what pokerdogg is talking about when he says i should know what to play
