ive been getting in plenty of hours lately playing LIVE for a change, instead of online or instead of sitting around in Jean, etc. Not really all that thrilled with the results however, a lot of times id start out slow, never get ahead very much, and eventually either quit down part of the buyin, or end up losing the whole buyin. also i dont think i play as tight as i used to. u see i know i should fold KQ suited when its raised, and yet ive got into trouble a few times because i didnt fold it. also i seem to have actually done worse in loose games than tight games and thats sure wasnt the case in cali, they rake it differently so in cali u NEED a loose game.
But yesterday i had a WIN at TX station finally, a BIG win that is, not these $20 and under wins. at one point i was up $152, and when i left, i was still up $79 (plus $18 in my cashback id redeemed). Once i started losing some back all i could think of was getting out of there, so i called Vinces friend Jay and he came picked me up while he went to cash in his sports ticket. new roll is now $1489. and if i had the same deal of a place to stay out in cali id much rather be playing there in Pechanga.
yeah the roll hasnt gone up much at all since leaving Jean, and the free slot play was a large part of the increase. sometimes i think id be better if i had a sufficient roll to grind there in Jean instead of playing poker but id have to be more disciplined about cutting back on the number of spots and thats hard, because i dont want to spend over twice as many hours for the same amount of comps. But if i did have a larger roll to work with (lets say 3k, about twice what i have now) im sure id do a lot better at poker too, (id feel more comfortable playing longer with bigger amounts on the table, like $200 once my stacks doubled up) and i think id stayed longer last night at tx station instead of feeling the need to get out of there when id gave back quite a bit of the win, u see it was a good game at tx last night.
and as far as the omaha goes, id still like to play it more, but i just dont want to play it 4-8 too expensive of blinds, sams town does have it 2 days a week now instead of 1, ($3-6). was going to play at suncoast yesterday then realized it wasnt the omaha day but the stud day. Yeah the plan to go elsewhere is kind of on hold, i dont want to be without a place to stay at all. would like to be able to save up money while living at vinces, if i cant save up money here with my expenses cut way down, how would i ever save up money anywhere?
and speaking to other poker players seems im not the only one who keeps losing lately. Vinces roommate keeps losing, and so do others. also it seems online poker in NV wasnt nearly as popular as they thought it would be either.
and im sad to report that had i not wasted $49 on VP the other day trying to get even id have won more. but when i played VBJ the other day while in my free room at Circus for 3 days, it really helped in recovering poker losses. VP sure treats me worse than VBJ, and i know why its because low multi denomination machines have worse paybacks.
