From Vinces house

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.

  2. I think you need to add "multiple personalities" to your list of issues, Tony. I swear - I read this post and can't understand how you can curse those machines and say you need to stop playing them (each time after you leave Jean), but yet a few days (or sometimes a week) later, you contemplate going back to 'dem good machines. Don't you ever read your past posts and figure out that 'dem good machines are bad for your bankroll? It's beyond comprehension how you haven't figured that out by now!

  3. Well it's safe to say that I have been reading this train wreck for far too long. I keep hoping thing's will get better but rails will run their course and sorry Tony but you aren't doing anything to avoid the crash. You are so delusional and destine for failure, it's not only scary but down right depressing. You actually have logical people in your corner but you are too shut off to even consider it. They are looking out for your best interest but to you it doesn't matter. That is sad to see. Best of luck but honestly, at this rate, nothing good is coming from this story.

  4. There is no reason for you to ever play a video poker machine that is worse than 9 6 jacks or better in Vegas. I only play video poker to get free rooms or free drinks. If you want to gamble play craps or something where you can actually get a big win.

  5. The title of every one of your "Updates" should be. "If I just had more money, everything would be okay!"

  6. I just enjoy reading TBC latest reasons why he plays and hangs on. People keep writing suggestions like get state aid, do not play VPM, go home and live with your mom, or try and find a job. TBC is doing what he wants to do. He is never going to change unless something really drastic happens. I have a house and an income so it really does not make a difference whether I win or lose gambling anymore. TBC has to win or it will be over. Keep grinding away TBC

  7. Tony:

    What are your thoughts about the recent government shut down and debt ceiling kerfluffle? House/Senate both voted to pass funding tonight, but curious on your take.

  8. ended up winning over $400 at Tx station today before paying Vince, and depositing $20 more on bovada, and buying food. new roll, $1820. BBBJ got cracked for $278 and i was in on it. my roll is getting in a lot better shape. also, ssi sent Vince a letter, my hearing is coming up Nov 30 and on nov 15 i am to see my atty to go over things. i dont think it will be approved because nothing has changed, i wonder if i can get others to testify about my condition at the hearing? and how? need to ask the atty
