well it felt good tonight when i touched down in vegas in one piece, a bit of a bumpy road, and to save money first thing i did was buy a daily bus pass. Wish i could get ahold of Benny, but first i need a working phone, and for that ill have to wait til tomorrow since i cant figure out my password.
it was good to get away for a while, see family (notice all of moms new pics on facebook) and to make it back with so few dollars disappeared during the trip. felt good to see the girl next to me talking to me on the plane, and keep accidently touching me while she talked, til i learned she had a husband in vegas, and was going to see him soon as she stepped off the plane. also she talked about God protecting her while up in the air. but hey she did offer to buy my $2 pop while on the plane, when paying for her own food.
and also, i have $50 match play at the golden gate--to get it, u must show an allegiant boarding pass within 24 hours of ur arrival in vegas. so u dont have a lot of time, and of course in the middle of the night, the players club booth to pick up the voucher probably isnt open unless the pit boss can do it for u.
ive decided NOT to do what i was originally planning to do on my return to vegas--because im too afraid of going broke if i do. u see my original plan was to go out to henderson in the morning, take a room near the casino with the dealers angels machine by the week, and grind it on the $1 min with proper bankroll management where theyres very little traffic and is basically empty most all the time.
but with so little money left--and the horrible rule of hitting soft 17, and the low comps, im not so sure its still beatable. sure u can see the shuffle, and any BJ game is beatable with a huge 1-100 spread instead of a 1-8 spread, but since i cant afford that type of spread--------------------
so i figured ill stay a day or 2, then go out to cali to play poker, and if i play any BJ it will be TABLE BJ. why? well, i did quite well in KS at table BJ, turning $40 into $97 with no martingaling whatsoever. the slightly higher min on the table and my lower roll keeps me from martingaling it. also ive learned a secret to play for hours straight at the right table BJ game with 2-1 BJ coupons all day long, and im wondering just how much over 100% this brings up the payback, getting double money on every single BJ i get. so i wont be in vegas very long--but i will play a bit of poker tonight and tomorrow.
years ago all i played besides poker was table BJ. in AC, IN, NV, WA, etc. and i got tossed for counting cards (not for bad behavior) at a bunch of places. i certainly had the pit convinced i knew enough to beat the game. u see, back then, the min bets were lot smaller, better rules, so i felt more comfortable. good BJ machines didnt exist back then that i knew of, although now ive heard about games i missed out on i didnt know were good back then and wasnt aware of.
ive been told my $3500-3600 is enough to flat bet 25$ all day with a decent edge with the 2-1 coupons. and the most i should worry about dropping is $1000---and that that is "highly unlikely" and overall it should be worth over $100 a day in ev. would like to know how true that is.
