im a little surprised my teeth are no longer causing any soreness again, they sure aint been fixed, the dentist did say to take care of that soon so it wouldnt end up getting an abscess someday later on.
but ive felt nothing the last week hardly, and my teeth are extremely weak, i cannot tear open any food packages with my teeth and without a pocketknife it can be extra hard opening packages of food, etc. nothing that i opened with my teeth in the past is able to be opened now.
when i go to rent a motel room, theres only 3 things that really matter. one thing u would think would be quite important isnt as important really, and is why im not renting out certain rooms for $80-110 a week in the reno area. and also, my last landlord in reno told me hed be glad to have me back if i wanted it again (when i moved out to leave for Lake tahoe friday last week). guessing thats cause i have no visitors, dont smoke, drink or use drugs, and never turn on the TV.
so no, its not PRICE, although it matters somewhat. 1. is safety, no shitload of tenants at the desk constantly and in rooms with their doors open making me uncomfortable. Tenants who stick to themselves and arent surrounded by people and knocking on others doors. Tenants who dont look like pimps and meth whores.
2. the internet must work, yes i pay $35 a month for cricket broadband, but thats not really for use at home, its to get online from outside, the bus, etc. its slow as fuck after the first 10% of usage. and wont load candy crush anymore, etc. or play videos without horrible dragging. this is the only thing that really bugged me about my former landlords place, that and the location wasnt in the right part of town i needed to be in to best ride the bus.
3. it must be convenient to the casino or bus ill be using the most often. no complicated trips on multiple buses.
(P.s. speaking of buses, on june 21, theres a new $5 city bus to south lake tahoe, but that dont really benefit me none since its south lake tahoe and not north lake tahoe when harveys is harrahs). but thats a whole lot cheaper way to tahoe for most of the city of reno. disappointed i never got to take advantage of the bus to the goldstrike either, got the ban right as it started up. ill bet the lady driving found it odd i never rode it, after i applied so much pressure for them to start it up.
without ALL of those things working, the room dont really work out for me, and i tried to get a cheaper room tonight by the week a player recommended, with a fridge and micro and working net, but they dont accept new tenants this late at night, they lock the office down, and the guy just standing on the corner accross the street who looked like a mugger or dealer or at best homeless, was making me really uncomfortable looking at me knock on the office for nothing.
so i went down the street quite a ways in the direction i wanted to be, and found a nicer hotel with a lot higher per week price. now this is a good room, and then i spent $15 at a gas station buying food.
i was advised by an inner circle member (the one whose suddenly best about quick returns of all emails who im surprised by) to just stay put in reno, and quit wasting money on travel cost, and just grind the $1-2 NL and i should have enough buyins with the cheaper cost here. to try it and if i fail, try to go back to KS.
and u know what, i think thats a good idea. so ive temporalily put off the upcoming trips to elko, denver, and finally toledo.
no point going to vegas now either if koala wont be there til oct. i know koalas willing to hang out at the table, and assist me in the most important thing--getting along better with the other players and the staff. only good thing right now about vegas wouldve been moving back into my old place on the strip for $150 a week (surely the price aint gone up).
i did make about $350 today, (very well done) putting me briefly back to $3150 from $2800, but im back down below $2900 again now. u see, i paid for a room for a week, (not wanting to pay for a weekend night 1 day). and of the money i won today, only about $130 of it was in a quite loose low limit poker game. i got aa cracked 3 times with 45 minutes. (pays very little here). its better to win the pot. but also won 2 nice pots flopping sets. (among other hands).
the rest of the money won was on a new VBJ i found out about in a casino somewhere in the area i went to check out. Benny didnt seem to know about this machine, and the slot shift manager said it was only installed within the past week. its a shufflemaster paying 3-2 that shuffles every hand, making it not countable. normally 25c cashback per $100 bet, but certain times of the week multiplier point promos make it $1.50 cashback, so word of this machine cannot get out. min bet $1, and 5 spots of $50 each would be the max bet of $250.
i verified for sure with the manager (without making him worry im an AP) that yes the VBJ machine qualifies for ALL point multipliers and ALL promotions.
im guessing he thinks since its not countable--it therefore cannot be beat. well, i think hes wrong.
good rules too, stands on soft 17 instead of hitting, double any 2, and double after split, also surrender.
they had the machine set to deal every 15 seconds, but one of the bosses thought that was too long, so i convinced them it was definitely too slow, so they speeded it up to now be 5 seconds, which is great. i watched as the slot tech made the adjustment.
i shouldnt have won, today wasnt a special point time that i was playing, but oh well, sometimes lucks involved.
and ill spend most of the time (close to all really) just grinding $1-2 NL off min buyins to increase the roll and get back all the money i wasted in rent for a week. knowing where theres an easy bus ride to a much better machine will keep me off the 9-6 VP 100 play machines. also found a 1c denomination big split poker machine, that of course isnt beatable, but i did somehow win over $30 of my winnings on it.
