and more so, when u have a tooth bugging u that u know will cost far more than the $80 one guy claims (unless u find a free clinic for the homeless where they wont care if they do a good job and if u are properly numbed beforehand) and u know u dont have the money because it will all be needed for future rent over the next few months. id need like $8000 before id really have the $400 or so this will end up costing to have what i assume is 1 wisdom tooth removed.
Benny was going to help me find a clinic, but not only did he never come thru with the girl who reads my blog and wanted to meet me, hes pissed at me because i played games i shouldnt play, and thinks im hopeless and not worth mentoring. so ive not heard back from him today since.
anyway i started the day off poorly, losing $100 on the promotion in live BJ, but ended up winning that back in poker later (along with $31 on a game i shouldnt have played). i was up $101 at one point when things suddenly went haywire. and by the time i left the room with NOTHING at all to cash out, and went back to do the promotion one final time with a new coupon, i was down $250 for the day instead of being ahead, and man was i fucking pissed. 2-3 hands cost me ALL my stack.
first bad beat, i had QT suited and the flop comes Q89 with a lot of us in the pot for a decent pot. i bet $12 and theres 2 callers. turn comes J, old man shoves, and im praying he dont have KT. i call, for well over $100, and original raiser calls, and hits his flush on the river. hes shortstacked, so me and the old man still get back about $60 or so each.
second bad beat i have 44 and the flop is J74 with 2 spades. the original better whose last to act bets the flop for $15 and i only call. turn comes 7, i check he bets $40 and i made it $80 hoping for a call assuming hes got very few outs. he calls after a long thought, river comes 7 to counterfeit me and im sick, as he wins with runner runner JK.
so, thouroughly pissed now, i shove the final $80 or so into the pot over multiple $6 callers. original raiser calls with KK and one other guy whose got about $35 left. flop comes 278 with 2 diamonds and i have AJ diamonds, giving me hope, but i missed. the KK lost the main pot, other guy had 888
so then i went and managed to get a coupon to do the promotion 1 more time. lucky for me i got back over $1000 from the $750, got very lucky to have a shoe all to myself, and then tipped the dealer the $10 i promised him, and reduced my bet to $15-20 for the rest of the shoe. and had i not lost 4 splits and double downs on the final bet, id have left the casino with over $1150 instead of $989.
so i only lost $11 today, but still that dont pay my rent, or fix my tooth and i feel like im being put thru the emotional wringer all day long. i think Benny would be able to relate, and is why i consider him a friend, i wonder who else here can relate other than Herbie.
