most of it was due to a good day at the stratosphere yesterday. won all around yesterday. made money at home on UP before i went to sleep, made money in all 3 sessions playing $1-2 NL at the stratosphere (with breaks to eat or get online in between) (vince didnt get off work til after 12pm at ceasers last night--and today is his last day dealing). and then got more money cashing in all my comp dollars at the players club desk and taking free play for them. u get less that way than if u get food, but more than if u take cash. and that gained me another $57 after running it through one time.
today i want to find out if circus sent me any offers this month in free rooms or free play, and now i feel good, still need to pay marchs phone bill before midnite on the 4th, but might try getting a phone with net again instead, just so i can use my smartphone again. but if i do that, ill have to switch numbers and companies.
so now im at $3088. and i still think cali is a better option than vegas--as long as i have a place to live. u see, i would never end up giving back a $40-50 win, because id always be able to move tables--and rebuy just $40. sometimes at the strat i dont want to quit when i should--because of the hour wait to come back in with $50. the commerce is a really big room. but i do want to be around vegas for the possibility of seeing snevman or donkeytax. he wrote me recently and i wrote him back. and my living expenses are really cheap here.
even on the strip close to the stratosphere they wouldnt be too bad, several places nearby with rents of way less than $200 a week. at least then id never need to depend on the bus or riding in anyones car. the good news is i think i might have enough to play $1-2 NL again, and i feel now finally i can beat $1-2 NL in vegas again, or also win a little on UP, more so than id win on the VBJ in Jean in the long run. also read an article in which plo8 full ring has less variance that plo hi (very hi variance) or less variance than NL, so u need LESS buyins. too bad i cant find that game live daily, some places on the east coast i think have it daily though.
i must however say im extremely disappointed in PPP. i thought he was a real friend, in spite of all his snide comments on PPP. yet he never was willing to find me and play $1-2 nl with me once, even when i offered to come to the V to make it easier for him.
