Hi again from the north lake tahoe biltmore, and up to $2800+

I set a max loss of what id lose at $400, (so i wouldnt be too broke by the time my amtrak takes me to denver later in the week once i learn more details about how the free rooms work at the reserve and the lady luck). i emailed the casino, since i didnt think Joel would actually bother to investigate, and im waiting for a reply back.

arrived with about $2365 after that big loss last night, and id been winning at the poker or the Gemtiles machine past 2-3 days until that drop at the Peppermill. Martingaling the machine i didnt think id get hurt too bad, it being full pay, but i shouldnt have capped my max bet at the table limit of 500 credits on the 10c, but at a much lower scale. winning back $79 at the cal neva helped, on the LIVE BJ table, and Rob Singer has written about how he uses a similar martingale on the VP.

1 bet 1 hand 1c, 1 bet 1 hand 2c, 1 bet 1 hand 5c, 1 bet 2 hands 5c each, 1 bet 4 hands 5c each, etc up to 100 hands 5c on the 10c for a bet of $50. full pay still dont quite give 100% but i wasnt sure what the peppermills comp point was, if it was enough to make up the difference with either cashback or comps.

one thing i really hate about playing at the peppermill is ur card never says ANYTHING, just the word accepted. u have no idea what ur earning.

so i go to amtrak at 8am, and find out the train will be 8 hours late, so they allow me to board the sacramento bus (that normally dont make a stop in Truckee) with the instructions to the driver to let me off in truckee. (amtrak bus). and while on the bus i took a pic of the girl across the aisle i wish i had as my girlfriend.

id thought about taking the bus all the way to turlock, and id also thought about getting right back on the 2pm train going east today.

so if i discipline myself i said i wouldnt drop more than $400 here, and id get out of here with $1900 minimum, but of course we are hoping for a lot more. ill need it in denver, but i hear the games are quite loose there. dont know if its true.

also been told by a homeless guy on the truckee bus one of the motels on the main road rents rooms for $160 a week, but cannot remember which older motel it was, some word that began with the letter P.

found out also about a bus i didnt know of. its called the route 395 lone pine bus (u can google it) and its run by the east sierra transit group. it goes reno to carson city to lone pine CA, and then theres a different bus goes by a ton of ski resorts on the eastern cali border, and the bus eventually ends in lancaster ca about 8 hours later. not sure exactly where lancaster is, but i think theres connections to bakersfield or LA on other buses or trains. that info might come in handy sometime too.

so i found out about a promotion here at the tahoe biltmore i didnt know of. ive qualified for it due to heavy play in the previous visit. 2 days a week, i can draw an envelope out of a drum for free slot play on the right day. and win from $5 to $1000 in free slot play. am wondering if this is the promo chap and benny know of that make the machine worth playing.

anyway i arrived in Crystal Bay with $2360+. spent a bunch of money on a room, and after winning about $300 on the machine, and pulling out $300 in free slot play in the envelope i drew out of the drum (many are only $5) with $1000 top prize, new roll is $2836.

not bad for when i left here the time before after the huge drop. and i had no idea i qualified for that promo. i couldve been drawing an envelope 2 times each of the last 2 weeks.

  2. u see strange things up here in north lake tahoe, and if alysia chang was really a woman, i wish she was here to show me around the area. at least theres bus service but it sure stops running way too early at night. need a friend with a car. tonights been a good night, a girl sent me a text i was so disappointed i didnt get to meet while in reno, so i guess she likes me after all.

    and i won over $100 on the VBJ, its nice and peaceful here, never anyone around, stone cold dead at night, so i can play undisturbed, i like that. too bad north lake tahoe has no live poker, any plans to get any?

    new roll $3029, (got all the money back that was ever lost). i knew i had to run severly below expectation on the previous trip.

    and id sworn i saw a monkey outside one of the cottages, but the casino night manager convinced me it must of been their raccoon

  3. so many homeless people camping in the woods a few miles off by the lake, but im way too worried about robberies and muggings to do it, although i know i have no business paying $77 for one nights hotel. also i have a big fear of snakes climbing into the sleeping bag. sure wish i had a car to sleep in, would really solve all my problems and id saved so much money over the years, id be about $50,000 better off today

    1. maybe they are just tourists who are camping out, lots of people do that, it would be very safe there. except for the bears, mountain lions, lynx, and bobcats, of course.

  4. There is a way to beat the Biltmore vbj machine for $50 an hour. But because you are stalking me on youtube, I will never tell you.

    1. i already know the way, u dont need to tell me. its to have a bankroll of about 20x what i have, so u can bet 5 spots of $100 at the right times. i didnt know u had a u tube acct.

      what i do wish was that Benny wouldve kept his word, and showed me a more accourate way to know the count on these since u cant see when it shuffles.

  6. ive been waiting forever to check into my room on sunday, they were completely sold out saturday night, and they will not let u store money on deposit at the cage or front desk til AFTER u are a guest of the hotel (small casino) but the employees have been nice and helpful, they are going to work to try and get me into a room as quickly as possible.

    at least im still paying for cricket broadband and it works fine, even if a lot of time my cell gets no service. am still doing quite well on the VBJ, new roll is $3184. up several hundred off of it now. (for this trip that is).

    to avoid this same hassle in the future, i need a sleeping bag, to be carrying a lot less cash, and to investigate all the motels during the day. ive also been told the motel 2 blocks away is $270 a week, but thats questionable and still way too high. a guy knew a seasonal worker at the ski resort paying that price per week. also was quoted $160 a week and $200 a week at other motels one of which i dont know the name of, one i googled online, and their email address isnt valid.

    i hate making calls, but i really need to make some to motels to avoid this weekend issue if i spend more time here. and also ive been told the Hyatt has live poker, but i understood north lake tahoe has no poker? Benny swore to that effect, but another guy said his friend was playing $1-2 NL there in incline village last night $100 buyin. maybe they reopened?

    cutter can call Benny and ask him, i dont have his number anymore, and i should call the hyatt and ask. if i take the city bus there during the morning or afternoon, id be stuck there all night without a way back once the game broke and their rooms are much more expensive.

    1. I told you all along that Cutter and Benny were fucking assholes who didn't care about you, but you chose not to listen.
      There is a way to beat the Biltmore vbj game. I will tell you what it is, but you have to stop posting comments on youtube videos that I make. You can start making $50 an hour on the game immediately.

    2. i think id do well with the right mentor, and josie was sure that benny was, but he got upset and gave up cause he thought i didnt listen or follow advice. theres no way in hell to beat it for $50 an hour with only $3254. but hey ive done quite well this trip. had another small win today, thats why its now at $3254. unless thats only during one hour a certain promo exists, like the pick an envelope promo. i only posted on ur google page that i remembered, how do i even find ur utube page, unless i posted and forgot a few weeks back. if somethings being posted new its not me, but a fake impersonater.

  7. also i found out about a motel 2 miles away for $200 a week. called them on the phone, the $160 a week place seems to not exist, and the other place i was told rented weekly dont. and the poker room at the hyatt only is open wed-sat, $100 min $1-2 NL and it dont start til 7pm

  8. im sure if i wanted to do nothing but grind this VBJ machine, the same VBJ machine in prescott az out in the middle of nowhere would be a better option, or the ones in south dakota. as for that matter theres a better machine at the hacienda in vegas thats a dealers angels.

  9. u wouldnt believe what a hassle it was to store $1200 at the cage, and they only do it if u have a hotel room (which is when u least need it)

    ReplyDelete
  10. theres no comments at all on ur u tube channel, the only comment was on ur google page, which i deleted. i did find ur utube channel and hit subscribe

  11. might as well go back to sleep while the rooms still good, for all of todays play, all that did was bring my comp balance from $10 to $15, and the rooms are $35 in comps. not nearly as good a deal as Jean. but i am up to $3291 again.

  12. finally off the train, and in my hotel room so i can go back to sleep (as on the amtrak) im too old for not having a room 24/7 i wish i was young again, i fear for my future if i dont have a lot more money than i do now when i get old. was boiling hot with sweat when i checked into my room 2 nights for $79 total, and was so glad its ice cold ac inside. somehow after paying for all this, the train, food, and a small loss at the very end of the trip to Tahoe, im still at $3145. thats better than i came to Tahoe with, and i have 2 days to find a new weekly place in reno preferably near to virginia st. and i can still go to denver although the one place never emailed me back, and the place that did limit the free room to 3 nights a week.

  13. Wouldn't it be fascinating if someone invented a device that you could somehow use a personal number that would actually connect you directly to a person or place of business where they would pick up the device and talk to you directly about these room availabilities?
