even after dropping a ton of money tues and wed nights, im still in relatively good shape before i pay the rent today. i can remember not only when i was better, but also when i was a lot worse. (mostly in the 1990s). but then again, i remember being in AC NJ back then with over $6000, and buying in $1000 in a $1000 min buyin PLO game with a guy named tuna, and a guy named Sklansky. that was when i used to hang out with Mark Bogart the bum, who was a much bigger degenerate than me, and always lost it playing BJ, and needed rooms all the time. i think he died, not sure. wonder if anyone from ac knew him?
Somehow i need to find a way to get money onto Bovada. im down to about $25, and in a $1 PLO high tourny. I'd gladly pay more than the money is worth just to have a way to deposit. if i run out, im totally screwed, and i can only play extremely low stakes, cant even afford $5 double or nothing sngs. too bad they quit taking NV residents. theres so many people constantly rebuying in this $1 PLO it can get expensive too.
i was in for several buyins this afternoon, eventually was forced to use the ATM, and managed to recover and profit $56. Tonight i never was in for as much, although i eventually was in for $89 instead of $40 or $69. won a big pot, and soon after left after folding a hand i was unsure about, and also feeling like i might now have too many chips to continue playing well. Ended up winning $129 tonight. Finally got over 200 hours logged now.
I'm too old to play longer than 7 hours straight anymore--its been a long time since ive had a 7 hour session. all the sessions ive tracked are much shorter--usually not over 2-4 hours. not only that, my play rapidly deteriorates when i dont feel like sitting there anymore.
Nothing like my old AC NJ days, in which my record at the Taj was 52 hours. of course i left broke, looking for somewhere to sleep and panhandle.
but this is the hand i was questioning--and the more i think, the more i feel i did the right thing. i was talking to a good winning regular at the desk as i was cashing out same time as him, and he says i made a good fold that she hadnt raised all night preflop and was no question she had a bigger pair than me.
i am in the SB for $1, and about 8-9 people limp for $2 preflop. (it was a good game). lot of $500+ stacks too. i look down and find JJ and decide i better narrow the field. (mistake 1, should limp, setmine, and maybe win $350 on the hi hand). i make it $20, hoping thats enough, UTG calls, another guy calls, lady on the button goes allin for about $160, and what can i do? how can she have QQ KK or AA if she only limped the button with that many in front of her and didnt want to narrow the field? but she isnt a regular so maybe she plays unnaturally.
i decide to fold, but it makes me feel like im playing scared money so i left on my BB, all the other callers folded too.
vook? Grump? Pokerdogg? Koala? what did she have?
