too bad i didnt spend most of my life here in los angeles, away from machines, away from tougher players and tougher $1 2 games, i wonder how high my money would be now had the vast majority of my time been spent here instead of NV?
After taking a room for a week yesterday I was down to $3017, and after eating at Burger King, (where i walked after making the ATM deposit) and paying my cab here, i had $2990 left. lost 2 buyins for $98 total at $1-2 $40 buyin NL and thought i was finally going to have my first ever loss at the commerce. I decided to move to Omaha, and was pretty card dead but man were the pots awful huge and the players very weak. at the lowest point i was stuck $122. but i managed to get off that game with a new roll of $3025.
I think the reason im doing well this time not having any losses is my game selection has improved, and instead of playing the FUN games (think plo8, stud, and higher buyin NL) im playing the games i do best in instead. For isnt that the only real reason for playing is to increase my roll --and in turn my circumstances? it sure isnt to have fun or for enjoyment. Fun and enjoyment is what u do with the money when all is said and done, its not for the tables or while u play. Not if u want to be successful. we can all agree on that, right?
so my better decisions is why im still over $600 better off than when i left Jean, despite having spent over $500 since coming here this first week. (and maybe a little bit of luck)
i probably shouldve just taken the original hotel i abondoned the bags at, its closer by far. and theres also better motels i found more convenient to the bus with fridges and microwaves for no more than im paying now. in fact the place i took yesterday i originally thought was convenient to my bus, but i looked at the map wrong and found it wasnt. paid $17.85 plus tip to get there for $20 cab fare, every trip at that, so when i got into my room and turned the heater on full blast, i looked up online google transit (which ive come to depend on for bus schedules thanks to Britni) and it was showing NO BUS in the area at all, and said to drive or taxi 4-5 miles away to get the bus, and im thinking WTF? cause im still in a pretty populated major suburb not far away. so i sent out a few emails to my most trusted advisers.
turns out i was wrong, or actually, google transit was wrong. there is a bus 3 blocks from me, on a major street, and i can use it to get to the commerce or transfer to another bus even though its not the closest or the most preferrred bus. its run by a TOTALLY DIFFERENT bus company, and is why it dont show up on google transit but has its own website. Herbie told me this isnt the first time things dont show up on google transit. so i looked up their schedule, downloaded it and its only showing weekdays. now granted i did this from my phone and NOT my laptop, but then why was there a bus today?
i paid for a cab anyway cause i thought it might only be 1 an hour, but it seems like every 30 minutes, looking at the schedule but i have no idea if theres one this sunday morning since its not on google transit. and their site says weekdays. maybe that means everyday i dont know. yeah i seen a bus leaving just as i was crossing the street, so i think wasting todays $20 on a cab mightve been dumb. cant expect to win $200 every night. tonights been the worst night yet and im not quite done playing yet.
and i still could really use a better battery too, and i sent KOD a message, but he hasnt returned my text yet. and i havent even looked at emails yet, i simply went to create and type up a new blog before i did anything else.
