So when i went to pay my rent today, again i paid for a week instead of a month, even though paying monthly wouldve saved me quite a bit of money, almost $100.
still think i might find a nicer place to stay longterm. at least with better climate control and a better kitchen, and better internet. but i cant beat the deal i have now. But u see, if im really making good money off poker, eventually i won't need the good deal i have now on cheap rent. paying an extra $200-300 a month wont seem like much at all.
got over 55 hours of poker logged so far of $1-2 NL, and still have a win rate of $35 an hour. im sure by the time i get to 200 hours it might then go below $20 an hour, but anything over $10 an hour is very good. living in reno is cheap. and ive got all the time in the world to get in more hours than im getting in now. $10 an hour could be as much as $2400 a month.
also i feel like this tooth should be gone ahead and taken care of before it gets too serious. its starting to feel funny again--but id really like to avoid the pain of the needle. if u spend like $500 to be completely sedated, how do they give u the needed shot if u are asleep? u dont open ur mouth if asleep. no idea how it works, do any dentists read this blog?
Playing on bovada right now as im typing, and my $20 deposit a couple weeks or so ago is now at $179 still. $29 of which is currently on my PLO8 game. i also need to go buy more food too. just too lazy to make the walk.
i also wish i had books in here to read--tired of having to be on the net everytime i want to read something. i never watch TV, so id at least like to read. i dont like paying the high prices most cost new though. considering buying a large bulk quality online of the type i like "used" of course, to make the cost tiny. Christian fiction, comics, (such as Archie, etc). i imagine i could get a great price.
im glad ive got that huge size bag from sears when i bought the fan and towels. u see it makes it great to throw out all of the trash, i hate the small little bags u get at the grocery store, they arent nearly big enough. and i also dont like wasting money paying for bags. i dont like wasting money paying for ANYTHING.
not sure, but isnt tomorrow supposed to be the weekend Nick will be in reno? i also keep forgetting pokerdoggs vegas trip days, wish he would stop in reno too.
i think im doing so well at poker in reno is because im playing on a lot deeper level than my opponents and my reasons for making certain plays certain ways is too advanced for them to understand, so they either think im a donkey, or dumb. Plus ive not been here long enough to gain respect. I've played many pots in ways u wouldnt expect a "tight" player to play. i dont even know if my image is actually tight. but when people from higher limits sit in $1-2 who play 20-40 limit and 3-5 NL, they sure do play badly if they feel the stakes are beneath them.
its a much better game when i play with guys with money than guys who are broke. its hard to beat guys who are broke. (the vegas grinders). its why i moved to reno. (well not entirely). the action at the table and the average pot size is much better when most of the players have far more chips than me, why would anyone want to have the table covered for? u dont want to be the one with most of the chips unless its a tourny. no matter how much my roll grows, i tend to always buyin $40 min, and then slowly add to it over the next few hours.
the only way to really grow a bankroll is to NEVER treat any of the money like it can be disposed of foolishly just because uve been running well, this is the quickest way to lose it all back. still faults and all, i feel like i should be given a lot of credit. ive lived indoors for many years now instead of outdoors and mostly with NOTHING coming in from the govt. all my own money and all off of poker winnings. so im doing something right. i dont get enough credit for getting by.
this blog is a great success story, compared to 15-25 yrs ago panhandling to survive, nowhere to live, and even to the big struggle it was to survive when i first got on RTP with under $1400. its a great story of how a guy with no other opportunities and a disability, can make a go of it from poker, and give himself a better life if people only believe in him.
