its not good

down to the $1400s, after 2 lousy days between boulder station and Club Fortune, shouldve taken my room at texas or palace instead (or else went back to vinces or cali). wouldve even been better off going to Jean as long as i stuck to losses below 3%.

so im playing now with the $15 on UP in my room before i go to sleep, (and yeah thats part of the bankroll--its not extra money not included in it). thats off the $10 deposited at the cage at Boulder station.

Only place i won lately has been at Palms, and thats because of all the promo money. looking at Bravo live now, seems the promo is still being listed, but i hear its going to be taken away anyday, and i know Bravos info on the rake has been changed and is incorrect. its back to $3+2 instead of the $1+4 it used to be.

i couldnt use my $50 for $40 coupons in the poker room here like i thought i could--seems those are only able to be used at TX station. Also i talked to my mom--she isnt able to drive in bad weather, and suggested i wait til the end of March if i come to visit, and she will still put out up to $300 of the costs of a round trip ticket. (will actually be over $400 counting other misc expenses) so it wont all be covered.

yeah almost anywhere else in the USA it would be freezing bitter cold. am lucky im in a warmer place and not sleeping outdoors at night--worry things will get worse. for many years--even in the older days--i had a bankroll far higher than i do now. even back many years before ssi, such as 1998-2005, i was far better off financially and often was over $5000 almost all the time. winning seemed to be 100x easier then, and i often played live BJ too. i dont know if the players were that much worse--or if i only won because i had a better roll. i think one thing is casinos take far more out now that they never used to.

glad to report the new reading glasses i got in the 98c store seem to work really well for the low price, and i do look better with the haircut and shave, although of course, that starts going away within the first few days.

and im tired--i need to take a nap--got another chore to do elsewhere online-but too tired to do it right now.

  1. Tony i am at the 2.00 strength when i hit the dollar store up here. Seems i always break my perscription glasses or lose a screw. I can't stand needing glasses. Sick of that already. You sound like i think too Tony, wouldn't it be nice to be back in our twenties. Me and you couldn't sit still. I was in like ten different states in 2 years with greyhound. Sleeping in the parking lots where easy back then even Cleveland in the winter if i kept the engine running wasn't bad. Vegas was warm never had to worry about that there, the only thing i hated about Vegas was staying in cheap hotels you always ran into creeps (drug dealers etc). At least your not in the Toledo or Detroit area this winter it is horribly cold here.

  4. Tony:

    Sorry to hear about the hit to the roll. Maybe going back home to regroup will be just what the dr. ordered.

  6. Now I'm confused. Is THAT your new blog? Are you no longer going to continue blogging here? If so, why post here AND there - why not just do one?

  8. since Poker Johnny dropped me off in Jean, i won $54 on VBJ, following the rules i set for myself exactly (never betting over 3 spots of $10) new roll is $2105. it would be more had i not lost at both the Palms and the nugget last night.

    the Palms is now doing $3 house take and no jackpot drop of any kind, and no promotions at all.

    1. Like a moth to a flame, you just cannot stay away from that vbj machine. How many times do you have to get burnt before you learn your lesson Tony?
