well instead of holding onto close to $3600 like i had when i woke up about 1am this morning, im now sitting with less than $3000. there goes my chance to ever be in the $4000s again. and the day couldve gone even far more worse than it did.
couldve got killed riding back to vegas with a stranger on craigslist too from rideshare, but nothing happened, seemed like a decent guy. i had him drop me off at a place way out south of the mandalay bay--but it turned out they charge far more than advertised--and they also had no vacancies. neither did the 2 places by the stratosphere, nascar is in town, and nothing is available weekly i want til monday. and thats if i dont leave town. considered leaving town today--but didnt see any immediate cheap flights anywhere i wanted. took the 109 bus to the airport from the south shore terminal after taking the strip bus there from las vegas blvd. then took another bus to the stratosphere.
found out allegiant is in a completely different terminal too. realized i need to withdraw my UP money before i leave town too. but i would like a fresh start in life somewhere.
lost far more on VBJ than intended and got exceptionally pissed off. count was good, and i bet way too much and couldnt handle being in Jean anymore. it wasnt a long term solution anyway without a car--because of no poker being available.
i just am going to have to make it at playing poker instead of BJ. which means my game needs to improve.
am going to change the subject now--and talk about an exceptionally good and loose game at the stratosphere. a game so good i hated to leave when Vince picked me up.
in the spirit of Rob, im going to name the guy at the table "zin" for i dont know his real name. he was a big mexican guy, wasnt all that good at gambling, and liked to drink tequila and he was from TX.
he had a speech impediment of some sort and kept motioning with his hands and wasnt easily understood by the cocktail waitress as to whether he wanted salt or not. and he stacked his chips very loosely and wildly all splattered, and he kept shoving them allin massive overbets on weak hands.
so i have QQ and have just gone down to being up less than $15 from being up $58 once earlier. i made it $15 (bigger size raise due to action game) and got 2 callers in middle position (i was the one in middle positoin) i am on the immediate left of Zin. so the flop comes 7QK rainbow and both check and i made it $20 hoping for action. one guy folds and Zin calls. turn comes 4, zin checks, i bet $45, and zin check raises me allin. hes a bluffer and of course i call. turns out he has an open ender is all, and he hits the straight on the river when the 9 comes. i was pissed, because i was in the game for $183 total
a couple hands later im in the BB with $2 and zin (just the 2 of us in the pot) vastly overbets the pot instead of chopping (doubt Zin knows what it is) and me being on tilt i shove with 33 for my $100 rebuy. thank god it held up. i made a boat and he only had A8 and never paired. but i think its a bad shove there--if i know for sure im getting called 100% of the time that is.
and im tired and sleepy--but still i really hated to leave that table--probably had a big edge there--there were 3-4 other weak tourists there too--nascar is in town--and im playing a tiny bit on UP and seals from the room before i fall asleep--and i need to withdraw all the UP money so i can be free to live anywhere without worrying about needing access to it. had a long phone conversation with Benny today too--telling me about offers elsewhere and advice as to where i should move--while shopping at the 99c store on charleston and decatur.
also i have another piece of possible good news from AKgal--but dont think now is the best time to bring up the subject. i must say--its something important that i really need to work on getting done.
indecision causes a lot of my problems--keeps me from committing to anything long term as far as getting my life better in order and more stability. i always want to leave my option open and never want to put out any money upfront--as an example--it keeps me from having money saved by paying for a monthly bus pass.
and also, i need the counselor rachel back at unlv. wonder if si would know if she still works there--i ve got to learn to take losses more calmly. the best way to do that--is to not gamble on games where i have the propensity to tilt more than i do at poker.
