so now im helping the city of las vegas--plan out where to put their new bus routes.

I turned down a ride to cali this week--because i didnt know where id stay over NYE--and also because even though ive done so well with less (at the commerce that is) i keep feeling i must be running way above average in the $40 NL there (due to a small sample size) --and its hard to believe in the longterm id clear over $500 a week hotel and transportation bills would cost. But i shouldve gone, wouldve only cost me $20--plus public transit to commerce from the santa ana metrolink station--and wouldve saved me the drop i had that same day on the VBJ here in Jean.

and right now im back in the $2200s and if id have left that morning--id been around $2500+.

In other news--my son was glad to receive his gift--and i got to talk with him on the phone about 30 minutes--and i desperately need my laundry done. need to also go into vegas and grab my $75 free play coming to me before i go to cali also. and ive not heard a word from Vince as to whether or not he received a package coming from cali.

Won some money on seals--transferred some to my bank thru coinbase--and got temporalily banned on RTP that i hope gets resolved soon. also i left enough on seals to play with, and im also broke again on Bovada.

The major piece of good news--i came across by accident. i was at the Post Office here in Jean, and i seen a flyer on there for the Silver Rider. (thats the public transit bus to laughlin from Vegas 3 times a week for $20--and also to St George and Mesquite--which requires reservations ahead of time due to some state law). They were planning to offer service (new) to Sandy Valley and Goodsprings (according to the flyer) which are about 10-15 miles from Jean--and the only town in the area (if u call a few hundred people a town). so i called, and they said that yes, once its going, that u could board at the gas station by the highway here in Jean (where it turns to go to those towns) but only with a reservation and only after it gets going, which should be very soon they said. it will run mon and fri from the south shore transit terminal, (not the Bonneville terminal) once a day on those days, between here and vegas. Herbie will be glad to know this. and yes, its for the general public. i made sure of that. they also said theyd check with the casino (needs casinos permission) to possibly consider offering a pickup there or dropoff. ill hear back from them soon.

the flyer in the post office said for people in this area--to call and make suggestions as to dropoff and pickup, and that the service they were considering offering was NEW. i never bothered to ask about the price. anything would be great, even if its $20 and its probably quite a bit less. i think mesquite is $15, laughlin is $20.

at least ive been winning on seals, finally have over 90 seals on there, which is worth right around 75c on the dollar. thats even after taking out the coinbase transfer to the bank. gives me a way to play a bit of poker--and earn a little money without leaving my room. which i did on NYE--never left the room cause i figured the casino itself would have too many people--and no one hates being near large crowds more so than me.

might possibly have a way into vegas friday. if so will collect the free play--and possibly go to cali again on monday. i still think the poker is better there--but worry constantly as to where to stay thats cheap. But then again--i never know ahead of time what im going to do.

  1. I had wanted to go to Jean for NYE, but there were no rooms available. I guess too many people wanted to celebrate the New Year in Jean, Nevada.

  2. Sounds like you have it all figured it. Travelling around aimlessly and not changing anything youdo but expecting different results. How's the response to craigslist been? I bet the responses are flying in

  6. thank God for hi hands at the stratosphere, last night Vince got me at the goldstrike for $30 and dropped me off at circus where i claimed my $75 free play, and cashed out $73 of it after running it thru once. took my free 3 nights, and then went over to the stratopshere poker room and sat down, (because its about the only place with a game going that lets u buyin $50)

    so i buyin $50 and within 2 hands, run it up to $101 after a double up when i seen the flop for $2 in late position, and flopped 777 on a flop of 579 and he put me allin over the top of my raise with nothing but 9 10. then eventually lost it all back and was wishing id quit with such a small profit. (this is whats good about commerce--so many games going i couldve immediately moved tables and rebought $40). after losing it, i rebought $65, then rebought $100. had some bad breaks, had QQ against AA, but managed to get away from danger on a flop of 79J with an allin and a call by the guy who min reraised me preflop to $30. also a flop came once 88A i had K8 in the BB, and turn K. we both got allin on the river, and he flopped bigger boat.

    i had 34 diamonds in the BB, flop comes 742 with one diamond and 2 clubs, guy bets $5 and 4 of us call. turn comes 6 diamonds. we all check,, and im happy to get a free card. hit straight flush on the river, for $250 plus the pot, tip dealer $12 and leave the game really soon afterwards, had i lost all them buyins id been barely around $2000. but i arrived back at circus with $2458

    1. "thank God for hi hands at the stratosphere"

      You think that god put high hand jackpots into place at the Stratosphere?

    2. why so thru life with so much resentment, bitterness and hate? do u miss vegas?

    3. so much bitterness towards God and his son Jesus Christ--who loves u more than anyone else in the world--same as he loves all who have sinned.

      is it because of the way the Bible says homosexuality is wrong, and some of ur closest women friends are so deeply entrenched into the lifestyle? i really dont know the source of all the bitterness, anger towards God, continually mocking of him in ur twitter, that so many do on here, there, and RTP. People that i expected better of--people i thought would be more open to differing points of view

    4. Tony, don't you understand that it is YOU who is totally blocking off any other point of view?

    5. This explains why you called me last night. Sorry man I was at work so I couldnt answer the phone.

    6. I feel no more bitterness, hate, or resentment toward your god than I do to Allah, Krishna, Thor, Zeus, Isis, or a thousand other nonexistent supernatural beings. I'm just questioning whether you actually believe that the creator of the universe caused the poker room management at the Stratosphere to institute high-hand jackpots so that you could come in and have a little score. Doesn't that strike you as a pretty far-out thing to believe? I do not believe that any all-powerful but invisible being did that, any more than I believe that some different all-powerful but invisible being commanded 19 Saudis to hijack and crash 4 jets on 9/11/01. They are equally absurd propositions. Fortunately, they are not equally DANGEROUS propositions.

  9. Interestingly only 7 seven passages in the Bible can be construed as to address homosexuality. And none of them are attributed to Jesus.

    Maybe you should consider if you are truly acting in a Christian manner with your deep seated prejudice against gays and lesbians.

    Pope Francis said it best, " If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?”

    You do not have condone them, like them, be friends with them, hang out with them, encourage them, but how about a little Christian behavior towards them? After all - Who are you to judge them?

    And don't go blaming them for your failure with women. Your Aspergers has more to do with your problems relating to people (of any kind) then anything.

    BTW.. nice high hand score. Hope you didn't blow it on that machine at the Circus.
