Get this fucking meth whore away from me.

Let me start off this very long blog post by telling u a little story i told Josie in a private email i sent her a few weeks ago.

While i was in Lake Tahoe (the first time, not the 2nd) a girl came up to me while on the VBJ, and was talking about how her bf was in jail, and how all her stuff was in either his car or his house, and how she couldnt get any of it, and how she too had no way back into reno. (and i told her about me being banned at the eldorado). i was going to try and find out if she was a hooker or not, or wanted to hang out but i didnt trust the guys i seen around her, all of whom looked like they were homeless or druggies, and those guys were even white.

anyway--fast forward--3 days later. im in the Atlantis poker room, sitting next to a black guy i thought might be a regular, and all of a sudden she comes running into the poker room (for protection im sure) along with some white guy whose claiming she stole his charger. Comes right up to the black guy, and im wondering if thats the BF who was in jail, but they both said no, and i have no idea how they know each other, i thought maybe he was her pimp, but who knows? the girl might not even be a hooker, all i know is she can always use money. anyway security came and im not sure what happened, there was a charger in her purse she claimed wasnt his (im sure it was though) and all 3 of them ended up leaving, but i dont know if they all got thrown out. i think i seen the black guy playing there on a later date if i remember right, but without the girl.

was quite surprised to see that girl ever again, after talking to her in Tahoe, and the black guy never wanted to say what the true story was, and i never was comfortable asking.

------this story will be continued some point later in this blog post-----------------------------------------


so tonight i went over to the Peppermill to play poker, and as usual i bought in for $40 the first time, (should i really be doing that instead of more with a $3500 roll?) ended up losing the buyin, (as often happens when short stacking--more variance) and rebought the oddball $46 i had on me. lost it too, and rebought $100, and hadnt been playing many hands. finally i get a big double up, and soon thereafter i leave with $202 ($16 profit).

i decided to take the bus to the VBJ machine in sparks because im not sure about the 5x points, (if theyre really giving it out on the VBJ or not) and i want to find out. the email i got back claimed id not quite qualified by having enough play. but 90% of my play was after the promo ended. so i wanted to get there early, get ALL of my play during the promo, and then see if i got the 5x points. also id been winning, was up over $500 overall, and knew even if i had a small loss (or a medium loss) id be ahead still overall.

well it took over 2 hours (and by then i was stuck over $250) but it finally started giving me 5x points on the VBJ, so yeah for u guys on RTP with the large rolls, u will get ur 5x points and u can cash out right on the machine in free play, no need to go to the cashier.

But the sticker is for "qualifying" play u get 5x points. they wouldnt tell me the exact amount needed, (seems to be against their policy) but im pretty sure its $1000 run thru a machine. for i think once i got my 5th drawing ticket, thats when i started getting 5x points.

anyway, i kept getting stuck more, (although i once went from being stuck $400 to only being stuck about $220) and eventually got 2 more cards to play all 5 spots, and had also took $500 back out of the ATM from yesterdays deposit.

Then all of a sudden this woman walks in there, and sits down by me, and says "still not playing at the eldorado anymore? and sure enough (at least i think it was) the same girl from Tahoe. now on any other time in there (when i was winning) id gladly gave her a small amount to hang out and maybe more if shes affectionate. But as always im in a horrible mood and getting madder the longer i play, due to losing so much more than i can afford to lose (and a lot more than id be losing if i was at a poker table). so i tell her im not in a good mood right now, and i curse out the computerized black guy dealing, calling him an obscene name. she says u cant say that in the casino, ull get in trouble, and i see the slot manager walking nearby (whose been walking around all night) that casino is quite dead in the middle of the night except for a very few patrons and employees, many of whom look either homeless, or druggies or alcoholics. (people who make u think of angerisagift). In other words, people broke and desperate, who wouldnt think nothing of jacking someone up for a few bucks. all i can say to the slot manager is "please get this fucking meth whore away from me, shes bugging me and wont leave me alone". she looks at me funny, walks away, the manager looks at me funny, but neither of them say a word, and i see her walking into the restroom talking on a cell phone. a minute later i see her walk out the door, and i left the machine about 15 min later.

the employee never said a word to me, neither him or security, and the girl never came back. but i was a little concerned she might come back with her BF whoever he was, so i left soon in a cab. i didnt have my jacket with me tonight, and it was freezing cold and cabs are much less in reno than vegas, it was only $17 to get home. i didnt want to walk 2 blocks to the bus stop and wait forever. (although it is open inside 24 hours).

im sure the manager realizes i spend a lot of money on the machine, hes pretty much got nothing else to do in the middle of the night, and im sure hes seen plenty of people hassled for money by homeless and druggies in there, so i dont think he found my comment too out of character for that casino. But im surprised he never asked me what the story was.

i feel bad though--i am mostly angry im in bad shape in life that i cant give women in that position a better life, (and a better quality boyfriend). not so much angry with the woman--i just dont want NO ONE bothering me when im losing way more than i can afford. everyone homeless looks at me like im this rich person gambling with a paycheck and can afford to lose and thats NOT the case at all. in a way im worse off than them cause many of them arent homeless (they live with friends and crash at their house free) and many of them get food stamps or welfare of some type.

i hope the girl understands. it feels so rude to bother someone if theyre losing.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
and to be honest, thats the 2nd time i saw a girl in need of help tonight. Reno is a strange town, for being such a small city compared to vegas, theres sure a lot of poor and homeless people here. just look at the vast majority of weekly motels somewhat empty for very low rent prices per week, even much lower than vegas, and certainly much lower than cali. for a single guy with the money to buy a girlfriend, this would be a pretty good town. too bad almost all of them are addicted to drugs. I wish i could learn from Carmen how to get those kind of women off drugs and interested in me instead. it makes me very bitter all the homeless drug addicted guys have girlfriends, and a professional poker player cant get one due to womens prejudice to his occupation.

at least it seems like thats the case.

the first girl i saw in need of help, that was right outside the Peppermill. im walking up to the bus stop, and i see what looks like 5 bums at the bus stop and her, at least theyre all looking very poor, and one of them has a big dufflebag and im sure hes homeless. she has a handful of change, and asks me if i have a quarter so she has enough for the bus, and i dont want anyone at the bus stop knowing i have money, and i tell her shes probably better off than me, and that i should be asking for the 25c. (id have never guessed her to be homeless i mean, and figured she probably works). at the least any guy would give her a free room. (i dont, but thats because i dont trust myself not to be setup and robbed, this happened to me years ago when trying to let some homeless women like with me. kind of more than once.)

but oddly enough, while on the bus, the guy shes sitting by and keeps talking to (whose homeless im sure with the dufflebag) i hear her mention to him that if she cant find somewhere to hang out for all night, she will be back at a certain place within a while. so maybe she is homeless. and i was right, the bus driver did let her on the bus, (i told her he would even if she was short once she put the fare in). i see the bus drivers in most cities do this all the time once someones paid the lions share of the fare, me included.

had she been entirely alone, and not around guys i fear, id have given her the 25c in a heartbeat and asked if she had an online presence of some kind, email or ???

but yeah, its scary catching the bus at night. thats why i wish i had a bike, or lived closer to the casino or with friends with cars. not so much riding the bus, but the characters u see waiting out at the bus stop.

I'm mad that normal women dont come up and talk to me in casinos, and im mad that men DO come up and talk to me in casinos. i dont know why claudia did, and thats why i was so bitter she disappeared, because i thought id never get that again. instead the only women who talk to me are those who want favors from me. I'm mad im not accepted by anyone for being different, (including the liberals who accept gays and blacks and muslims so readily) but for someone whose got a mental disability, they dont accept them. instead they block them on twitter (hello Jennifer Newell). just for having a disability and being unable to relate socially. ive been quite bitter of everyone who ever blocked me on twitter, including ur poker delear blog.

thank God for Josie, Lori, and Suzy, whove accepted me somewhat, but most of those girls ive never really talked to but at least theyre avidly into poker, know my faults and havent blocked me.

one thing i think will help will be when i get a shave and a haircut. tried to do this yesterday when i felt richer than id felt in a long time, and was at a shopping center near home paying for chargers, and laundry and everything else. at least then i wont look so ugly to women and be called wolverine like that one woman and her sister were calling me at the sands poker room last week who were otherwise quite friendly, but way too old and unattractive. at first i was sure they were a gay couple, but no i was wrong that time. im always thinking its a lesbian couple when its not, and wish i knew how to tell cause normally it is. the reason i couldnt get a haircut yesterday morning was they were all closed--its very difficult to find a barber whose open mondays, no idea why.

and then i wont get near as many bans. many of my bans are because i look like a bum, and for that reason they go much harder on me than a guy who looks like a businessman. I talked to stacey at the goldstrike on the phone a long time tonight, and theres nothing he can do, he says my problem is my ban is corporate wide, and id need to have corporate remove it, and thats not so easy.

and because my character i consider good (in the sense i want to do whats right by God--unlike angerisagift who dont believe in God and isnt nice at all) but basically im an honest guy--i dont get food stamps, medical, cash, or steal phone chargers and reading glasses from casino security like im advised to do. i try to still be friends with even those who dont like me and want nothing to do with me, cause i have no hate in my heart for anyone--even all the groups of people who make me uncomfortable, or feel are "sinners". i forgive others, who never forgive me. but of course i have a lot of faults, almost ALL of which are financial related. it puts me extremely emotional when either winning or losing at poker, so yeah others get pissed off, but for me im only trying to survive. wish others understood. i may be thought of as "predjudiced" by comments i say--but i really have no hate for anyone--and cant understand why they have hate for me, which is why im the way i am and became that way to begin with.

so i get mad when WEC, and of course others, think evil of me. including a goddamn taxi driver i wanted to kill the day before. i get in and ask to go to walmarts, and he offends me by asking if i have the money. (im sure its cause i look wild with needing a haircut) but i became incensed, saying its really him who shouldnt be trusted and that my integrity is beyond reproach but his might not be since cabbies tend to screw over anyone they can, and then he said his cab was his office and for me to leave so i did.

was so angry--cause the guys being judgemental. (u see if it was an old lady, he would never ask that). but yeah im honest, honest enough to ship koala $1100 on stars a day after ive already collected his $1000 WU, when almost no one else in my situtation wouldve done so for a guy theyd probably never see again overseas and couldve dropped off the face of the earth. so i get very upset when people think i might not be honest. im not entirely honest, but i dont rip anyone off. thats totally different.

and as usual im starving to death now, and have NO food in my hotel room. ive got to buy food, and because of this horrible loss putting me back to $3000 from $3500 after dropping $500, ive got to find the cheaper room, further away for about $100 a week less this friday when its due again, and i hate that, i like and feel a lot more comfortable right where im at.

good news is i really dont feel like ever going back to that casino in sparks again to play VBJ. i probably will at some point, but i really dont feel like playing anything but poker after tonight. i still think the poker is great in reno even though my win rate according to the 2 sessions on my cell is only $6.16 per hour now.

  1. regardless of what triple P might think, i really didnt go over there to play VBJ instead of poker, i know my hourly is better at poker. it was for research, to find out if i could really get the 5x points to bring up the game to 100.7% from 99.5%. now i know, so i really dont need to go back tomorrow.

    1. Tony, you had $3,500 to your name. Why in the world would you run $1,000+ through a machine in the name of "research." Come on, man. First thing you need to do is be honest with yourself. You played the machine because you are addicted to machine play.

    3. @ Rob - in all seriousness, I think Tony makes this connection too and thinks that, because I play machines, it's OK for him to play machines. I hope Tony does realize that, whether he thinks it's fair or not, our situations are not similar. I play machines with money I can afford to lose, with the understanding that I will, in fact, lose my money. Tony is trying to play machines for a living.

      Tony needs to not worry about what other people do, and worry about what he is doing to improve his situation.

    4. Very true, Pete. In your case, that's money you've set aside for entertainment. If you didn't put it in machines, you'd spend it on beer, flying around the country seeing baseball games, overpriced coffee.playing the occasional hand of live poker, whatever. Oh wait, you do all that too! :)

      Tony does it to try to pay for rent and food. Big difference.

  2. For the record Tony, nobody thinks you're evil. Addicted, yes. Self-destructive, yes. Delusional, definitely. And totally inconsistent. But it makes for good reading and your thought processes both confound and entertain people simultaneously.

    Look, you have to get your teeth fixed. You need to learn to follow through. Just because your teeth aren't hurting, it doesn't mean the problem has gone away!

  4. Now here what really happened, you had 3500 hundred just burning a hole in your pocket. You couldn't sit still, so you figured out a reason to take along ride to play video VBJ. So you approached the bus stop, typical scene. 2 or 3 ex cons and a prostitute. You had way to much money on you so you had to think of a line of shit to get the whore off you. It worked, she thinks ur to broke to even give her a full amount of bus fair. Now you can sit back and enjoy fantasizing about how dumb the woman is not to realize you could give her so much more than a life of crime she is leading now can. So you continue on to the casino, its the usual a filthy dirty pit. You really didn't expect any better, but the VBJ machine is glowing in the corner and seems to have a halo above it. You proceed to stuff money in it and your emotions are like butterflies, this could be your way to 4000, is what you tell yourself. As you play you realize its fcking you out of money left and right. This brings you to realize there is a filthy woman sniffing you out for a possible score. Then you lose more and realize she is with 3-4 pimps in the bathroom fighting over an old filthy beer can to smoke meth or crack out of. You continue to bet hoping to get your money back but it gets worse and so does the smell of prostitute. She continues to gauge you down for a possible score and you continue to get mad and more mad because your money is down to 3000 instead of up to 4000. You have finally had enough of this casino, another satanic whole in the wall with no business. You proceed to leave the dump thinking how nice it would be if you could purchase a truck load of termites to drop off there in the future!

  7. Most barber shops are open on Saturdays and closed on Sundays. In order for people working in barber shops to have some sort of "weekend" off most barber shops are closed on Mondays. A weekend for a barber is Sunday and Monday. I believe they have operated that way since the 1950's.

  9. Part one

    Tony I have just finished reading your latest post three times so that I could try and take onboard all you were saying. This is really one time when I wish I could print this post out and then sit down somewhere quiet and talk to you about it, and how you feel.

    I sense there is a lot of hurt and anger in what you have written about, and how you perceive yourself to be treated by others in this world. Most of what you written about could be sorted out and solved by yourself, if you would only take the time to think logically about your situation at that particular moment, instead of reacting with the first negative thought that comes into your mind. Let me give you an example.

    Your words,
    "Then all of a sudden this woman walks in there, and sits down by me, and says "still not playing at the eldorado anymore? and sure enough (at least i think it was) the same girl from Tahoe. now on any other time in there (when i was winning) id gladly gave her a small amount to hang out and maybe more if shes affectionate. But as always im in a horrible mood and getting madder the longer i play, due to losing so much more than i can afford to lose (and a lot more than id be losing if i was at a poker table). so i tell her im not in a good mood right now, and i curse out the computerized black guy dealing, calling him an obscene name. she says u cant say that in the casino, ull get in trouble, and i see the slot manager walking nearby (whose been walking around all night) that casino is quite dead in the middle of the night except for a very few patrons and employees, many of whom look either homeless, or druggies or alcoholics.

  10. Part two

    Sorry I had to break this in two, but it was too long to post as one blog post.


    This whole paragraph has so many wrong moments in it for you, but let's break them down.

    The woman who walked in and approached you was being friendly towards you. She had seen you and talked to you in two other casinos. So she was the type of woman who likes the casino environment and atmosphere. I have lost track of the number of times I have seen you say you wished you had a woman who would sit with you at poker, hang out with you, talk with you, calm you down when you get upset, and be someone you could care for and share your life. Here was the perfect opportunity for you to get up, take her somewhere for a coffee, and get to know her and find out about her. Yet you assumed she was a "fucking meth whore." Why? Because you were pissed you were losing $500 on a machine and took it out on her. Whose fault was it you were losing? Certainly not hers. You were racially swearing at an animated black person dealer on the machine you were playing for God's sake. How stupid were you for doing that? Certainly not her fault. She was looking after your best interest in telling you to not say those things in the casino. She was trying to help you. And how did you treat her. For no reason other than you could not control your anger at being down in your bankroll, you lashed out and say to the slot manager, "please get this fucking meth whore away from me, she is bugging me and won't leave me alone." Just how long was she there bugging you Tony? She looked at you funny and walked away, because she could not believe you would say shit like that. How do you know she was a meth whore? Did you see the track marks on her arms, legs, between her toes? She could quite simply have been a woman who was down on her luck and needed friendship and help from someone. Tony with your constant fear of being set up to get robbed, how do you ever expect to meet what you call a decent woman? How do you know she wasn't decent? You have to talk to people and not make instant judgements based on their looks or situation at the time. You are managing to put a roof over your head every night and that is great. But it costs no more out of your pocket to share that room with someone who needs desperate help. Sure if it doesn't work out you can go your separate ways, but you could at least give it a go.

    Maybe when I get to Las Vegas in October, we can spend time talking about these things, and what triggers your reactions. Have a think about what I have written ane if you see this woman again, maybe apologize to her, ask her to have a coffee with you. You pay for it and have a talk with her and explain your autism to her, and how you feel. If she is reasonable, and open to talk to you again I'm sure she will listen . Have a shave and tidy yourself up a bit. You don't like people calling you Wolverine. Then do something about it. You are not an ugly man, so don't let your appearance or hygeine levels degenerate to a stage where people feel justified in their own nasty way in calling you names.

    There is so much more I could write about the rest of your post, but for the moment have a read of this a few times and try and take some of it on board. Wish I could help you more, but at the moment I have a few problems of my own to sort out.

    1. well Koala, actually the 2nd time (in the atlantis) she really didnt say much. its like once she was around the black guy (he had total control over--and for that matter i no longer trusted her--i want a woman whose got 100% NO TIES to any guy--cause im scared of being setup u see) running to him for protection after stealing a guys charger dont make me feel all that comfortable to getting to know her--unless of course she wants off the streets, in a new city free and clear of whoever her ex is, or the black guy to be out of an abusive relationship.

      but of course if id have seen the girl tonight, (and she was ALONE) being in a better mood, ive had talked and somewhat apologized. but still, im scared to trust her. im scared to trust almost anyone, the ONLY reason i trusted claudia the first time i ever went to her condo was because i knew she wasnt setting me up for a mugging because shed sent me $100 cash in the past.

      i dont like to shave, cause mom always forced me to as a teenager, and i feel like im "under her roof again" if i do. it makes me feel like im not being an adult, (being my own man). a strict mother ruins u for life.

      the main thing i need in a woman (besides her having a ton of patience) is that she be 100% free of any other boyfriends, and i KNEW this woman wasnt. im paranoid of being setup because of several instances i let homeless women into my place over 10-15 yrs ago. all of them have men in their lives broke and desperate that THEY DONT TELL U ABOUT. many of whom are into domestic violence. i guess its just the type of women im attracted to, (u see i want someone who NEEDS me--not someone whose in such great shape theyd drop me in a second like claudia did).

      sure id like to invite a woman to my room, but i just do not feel safe doing that, especially when i wont be changed rooms the next day to keep anyone from finding out where im staying.

      if i was the type of guy who knew how to beat other men up--i wouldnt have all these fears and issues, and id be more easygoing without stressing out over these issues, and meet more women cause of it. but i got to always protect my safety. PokerKat is right, alot of why i act out at the table is being too afraid to fight so i talk with WORDS to kill tension. also i play machines over poker due to wanting to avoid being around people and to deal with deep emotional pain and to escape reality. thats why i cant give up machines to be honest.

      yeah i want a woman who is not from around the area--and really dont know any guys--and will leave town and relocate with me at a moments notice--or i go live in the city shes from. i dont want her having ties with MEN in the area. and another thing, it really freaks me out when MEN view my online profiles on dating sites after i comment to women.

      it also annoyed me id made clear i didnt feel like talking and just wanted to be alone (and she didnt immediately get up). i felt like i might be hit up for money, u see, just today again i was asked for change while playing. this time by an older fat ugly lady id guess close to 50.

      koala surely ur not naive enough to think she didnt steal a phone charger off that guy who went to all the trouble to follow her into the poker room and have them contact security and check her purse.

  18. "Get this f'g meth...." Not okay to say out loud. People who say things like this in a casino get banned. That fact that you were surprised no one said anything to you about it does not make it okay.

    It is not okay to tell a cabbie that "cabbies tend to screw over anyone they can", at least not if you expect a ride.

    With as many casinos as you have been banned in I would think you would be looking to have as little interaction with staff as possible.

    You should be neatly dressed and well groomed when you are in a casino. Right or wrong you will get treated better. You should be trying to attract as little attention as possible, not making the staff wonder who the 'wild' man is.

    Part of growing up and being an adult is letting go of the need to defy our parents. You should be making decisions based upon what is best for you. Being clean shaven is best for you. You don't want to look homeless, right or wrong, if you look homeless people will treat you like you are homeless.

  21. They have food in the poker room at the Peppermill. Why didn't you eat there? The soup shouldn't hurt your teeth.

  22. well im glad i had a better night tonight, just in time, rents due today and i dont want to continue paying $250 a week. started the night with $2865, and now im back to over $3100. my win rate is back to over $7 an hour (results tracked on cell phone) instead of being the MINUS $14 an hour it became after the last 2 losses. i wonder if i should move back downtown where its cheaper and my last landlord would gladly rent to me again?

    also theres a 3rd VBJ machine in reno i just found out about at a place near a truck stop.

    am glad im tracking results by phone again, and is odd no one is commenting on posts to koala.

    am in the $2 PLO tourny on bovada and doing well in it so far, but its not in the money yet.

    mainly what i wish is that i could get into a cheap apt by the month to save money somewhere in reno, but i really have no way to put out the money upfront. am investigating into whats a short walk from the major poker rooms.

    i suppose i could take the train out of here today too

    really need to show up for tonights drawing for a barbecue grill, ive got about 80 tickets from all my VBJ play. u must be present to win. no idea how id transport it out of there, or how to get a few hundred for it off craigslist or ebay. wish i had a friend in reno

    1. Um, hotels are almost always more expensive then renting. You're paying for convenience. Just like eating out costs more than eating at home.

  25. Wow! Another of them good machines! You could just rotate every 3rd day and make a fortune off of them! BTW..Reno in winter is no place I want to spend weeks at....better start making plans for San Diego or maybe head to Gulf Coast/Florida.

    1. so then why do u spend winter in WA on the north coast where the weather is always much worse, year round?

    2. ? Born, raised, and live in Arizona sir. Anything under 50 is too cold for me. I want to wear my shorts and flip flops year round and you can always take clothes off but there is a limit to how many you can put on. (actually I guess there is a limit to how many you take off too!)

  26. new results on phone tracking from $1-2 NL live cash games, $11.01 an hour in profit. won back most of the $116 (at poker) that i lost on the VBJ all night in sparks when i went over there for the BBQ grill drawing. id not gone had i known only 1 name would be called. shouldve came right back to reno and left immediately instead of playing without a promo going on. good thing my rent is now a lot less, and im not going to reach this morning money in the tourny on bovada.

    all my friends are winning big at the wsop.

    not all of that was lost on the VBJ--$60 of it was lost in the $3-6 game at the nugget, which im not tracking any fixed limit games to avoid confusing results in different games. am only tracking NL results. first hand i sit i lost about half my chips with KK against a guy who kept raising me with JJ, and a 3rd guy stayed in all the way with 97 and rivered us both, but i had the JJ beat.

    whats really weird is the guy i rode the bus downtown with, just so happened to be the guy who paid $200 to the winner of the drawing for her BBQ grill. (80 yrs old lady) he knew her, and he was riding my same bus back to reno about 5 hrs later to go to work.

    1. Track your vbj for couple weeks and compare with NL poker.

    2. Tony, use your head, man. Track all your games. The purpose of tracking is largely to see what games you are profitable in. By tracking all games, you can determine which you should be playing and which are bad for your sweet, sweet roll. This is a simple concept. You should be able to understand this.

    3. this is discussed in the newest edition of the blog, and better this discussion is commented on there too, so its not buried back here.

  27. try tracking all of your poker winnings (lol) regardless of game


    also track how much you light on fire in dem machines

  28. Next time your "roll" is around 10k you should find a 1 bedroom apt for $500/month and just pay the whole years rent up front. You will blow it on machines when you get "rich" so you might as well have a place to live all squared away.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Next time you have 10k spend 6k of it on buying a years worth of rent in a 1 br apartment or even a studio. I guarantee you will spend a lot less doing that than you do buying rooms on a weekly or even daily basis.

  30. why he he pay a year up front? it would go to waste when he gets a hot tip about dem machines somewhere else
