im going to listen to the advice of the #1 most dependable inner circle member that he sent me in a private email

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.

  1. What is it with you and VBJ? You run around Nevada from from one end of the state to the other and the result is always the same. You end up martingaling your ass into a big hole, blow-up, get banned, then grind NL to make a recovery.

    Wasn't that long ago you were up to 5k WITHOUT playing those damn VBJ machines.

    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

  4. Tony, try not to think about rent and food as "wasting money." Those are the things that money is for! Think of it like this - you play poker to make money TO BE ABLE to pay rent and buy food. Play poker to make money to cover those expenses. And try to win a little bit more money than that needed to pay those expenses that every month, which you then add to your "roll." Treat poker like your job, and focus on making enough to pay your expenses AND make a little more to then grow your savings....

  5. Why does it matter if the game is beatable by a theoretical AP? You've already shown that you can't beat it because you'll play when it's not +EV.

  6. Good news, Tony. In the near future you won't have to worry about tooth pain or abscesses because your teeth are going to start falling out of your head. Your lack of consistent dental hygene mixed with piss-poor diet are going to be your downfall.

  11. Tony your stupidity never ceases to amaze me machines are not beatable ever and you talked them into speeding up the machine to deal three times as many hands per hour are you fucking kidding me? Of course they would honor that request. It's now become a much more profitable machine for casino thanks to you

    1. The main stupidity is thinking that would cause 3x as many hands per hour. It certainly dont play the hands faster, only the wait between hands. Chaperone would earn more per hour with the change

  13. "nothing that i opened with my teeth in the past is able to be opened now."

    But, wasn't everything that you opened in the past with your teeth now open and no longer in need of being opened? That glass looks half full, sir!

    s.i.

  18. Isn't the machine you mention still a -EV machine even on multi point days? If it is not countable your giving up slightly more than your getting back every hand aren't you? So the longer you play the more it bleeds you. If you think for one minute that the casino hasn't looked at every angle possible on that machine, better think again. You might beat it for a week straight, but one day it will eat you alive and you have no discipline to walk away with a stop loss.

  20. going to sleep now dead tired, good news is im now at $3507. took my clothes to a laundry nearby, paid $15 and ill pick them up in the morning (too tired to do any really hard work), bought food mc d, still really need a haircut and beard trim, looks really bad again, installed poker session logger on my phone like PPP said, but is there a better program some of u use for the android? have one session with a win rate of $5.84 an hour now, and i also won over $300 when i went to check out the 5x points promo at the casino, and im pretty sure it really wasnt giving me the 5x points, the slot supervisor on this shift told me she would check into it and email me (at my suggestion) and also on the way home i got a charger for $13 at CVS pharmacy. was afraid it would cost twice that, am tired of having to be in the peppermill's poker room to be able to charge my phone.

    overall i think i had a good day, but of course im back to running above average. also went by BOA on the way home and deposited about $600 more.

    i must say one thing, im glad im staying away from small limit games, im much better off playing NL. also ive been extremely lucky on the VBJ here in reno, about $500 profit overall since finding that casino.

  22. Need to be sure what the requirement for points are. Most places require 2x or 3x coin in on VP and VBJ vs, slots and often they are excluded entirely on promotions some times.
