One Bad decision

well i didnt make my 1pm bus to the 2.56pm amtrak to go back to reno, and that wasnt a good idea, for im about $325 poorer than i was then. Only good news was i got them to comp me for tonight, so ive still got a room i didnt think id have today. (that was the one bad decision).

Probably will go back and play poker, take the 6pm bus to lake hyatt pokerroom, and i dont think that would be a good poker room to get out of line in. i havent did anything, but watching the rules, they seem quite strict. Kind of the same reason ive never got out of line in the wynn or Venetian. i only did at the rooms Mark runs cause i used to think of him as a friend til he continually needled my speech defect.

the manager was wondering who in reno was giving out the wrong info about his game, and i really didnt know what to say, but didnt want to name any names. suffice it to say ive made sure all the most important people now know, including Rob and poker atlas, along with the person in reno who gave out the wrong info.

that person gave me the wrong info TWICE. they gave me the hours at montblue and lake hyatt backwards. what they said was true for monteblue was true at lake hyatt, and what they said was true for lake hyatt was true at monteblue.

i didnt even stay last nite at the hyatt til the game broke. first at 2am, the manager said they would have to close at 3pm, no matter what since they didnt have anyone coming in. (i wonder if they do this all the time like some small rooms?) plus id ran my $100 up to $268 and it had been steadily declining, so i saw no reason to keep playing when i fell to $150. wish id quit sooner, it was enough to decrease the hourly rate to $14.90 (which i call $14) from $15.03 (which i call $15). i put in a ton of hours for way less than $15 an hour, so the hourly dropped even though i won. i always never count the cents.

close to $20 of it went for my cab back to crystal bay.

now that ive talked about the lake hyatt regency poker room, now let me talk about the new Stones poker room in the sacramento suburbs. first let me state i seen a public bus route right outside, so it should be convenient to get to. also the action there is much looser than thunder valley and its $1-2 instead of $1-3 like thunder valley. (but they do also have a $1-3 game there besides the $1-2). they do seem to be a lot of people there who know each other and are friends with each other, i dont feel outsiders are fit in too well. but it should be easy to win there.

i didnt win, and quitting the game because i was tired of folding was probably a poor decision. Karen told me she would leave anytime i felt like i wanted to go, and we ended up just going to another casino instead of back home to lake tahoe. i actually shouldve won, the hand i went broke on almost everyone wouldve won. board was 44K turn7 river7 and i had K7 in my hand, and he had KK in his. but its no wonder i was expecting my hand to be the winner til i saw his. he didnt even raise preflop.

its often been said that RTP is full of assholes (true enough) and that i shouldnt post there. Both by friends and people no longer around. My problem is when someone does me wrong by not standing up for me, i feel obliged to call him or her out on it. People should be able to interpret what i say in a way thats non offensive instead of in a way that is which isnt my intention. Notice how i stood up for steve when Rob was thinking evil of him on his blog in the comments (if hes had time to post it yet).

Pokerdogg claims its important to know my true winrate, and the games im best in. well the only way to do that, (is by filtering the results) and that cant be done on the cell phone too well. at least from a first glance at the software. would be a ton of work trying to see different hourly rates, instead of it just showing up. thats why for learning purposes u need a large sample size of games with pretty much the same conditions. $1-2 games in cali bear no resemblance to $1-2 games in the reno area, or the vegas area. so if i was to track them, id need to own 2 phones. i was actually thinking id WIN in cali, because i was under the impression from previous history at the commerce winning at $1-2 NL is easier in cali. but id already decided not to track cali before i started because i wanted to learn my win rate in reno as compared to my win rate in vegas (wasnt trying to learn the overall win rate). so i felt like mixing in cali wouldnt give an accurate picture. Lake tahoe is a suburb of reno so of course it counts.

Unlike Pokerdoggs opinion, i feel like for the results to be MEANINGFUL and something to guide me as to what to expect. pretty much all the game conditions should be SIMILAR. which means pretty much ONLY track 1 game, and 1 location (state and city that is). all im really trying to learn is what to expect if i stick to playing $1-2 NL in the reno area, this is all that really matters, and is important because it helps me know if im doing the right thing by staying in reno and playing monthly, or if id have a better chance of winning somewhere much further east or south. I'm glad ive learned as much about my hourly rate as i have, because it helps me see that coming up here to north lake tahoe wasnt such a good idea, and that im much better off just playing poker. certainly i aint winning $15 an  hour here, not even $1 an hour--though i still feel i could if i had say $40k to work with.

had i followed others suggestions and mix up all the results together, id have learned NOTHING. u dont need to track a game u will only play once or twice and wont play again for a year or so most likely. u only need to track whats ur bread and butter.

u can list a room on the phone, but in sacramento, not one room was showing up when u are to enter the room, only the reno rooms were listed to choose from. and in reno since my phone gets poor reception in the atlantis, the atlantis is not listed as a choice. so i have to type in atlantis, so there are 2 different atlantises showing up now in the results. at the gsr and the peppermill it will show it automatically thru the location software gps.

but even though u list a room, when u go to filter the results, u can only do so by game, so ALL my $1-2 results would be mixed together, making tracking meaningless if not already prefiltered the way im doing it.

Cizzle on RTP is an attorny like PPP is. he should have enough sense to know all those guys are trolls instead of agreeing with them, and so should pokerdogg. i clearly wasnt trying to influence the results by deciding before i played whether to track or not, win or lose.

also people should know that i was referring on twitter to unattractive women deserving just as much respect as attractive ones and just as much glory. they have it harder in life and i feel more sorry for them. I feel a lot more comfortable writing an unattractive one and being her friend than i do an attractive one, and aint really interested in the attractive ones--which u should all know from all the women ive written to and hung out with, and that speaks well of me as a person, and im sure Grump feels the same way. Which says something really good about him as a person. Grump is a liberal but he is one who is able to think and doesnt just parrot what hes taught, and is willing to take stands that are sometimes unpopular and not politically correct. If i had the money, he is the first person id travel to see. (the one id most like to have a long conversation in person with).

u see, the Bible teaches that its a major sin of vanity and pride to take pride of ur appearence or care for ones looks, and this is a major sin thats wrong with most women, and why i cant find a girlfriend, because no one believes what God teaches anymore. women care about looks as much as men do, instead of the type of person thats on the inside. and i feel bad for those who are discriminated against and left behind, and it applies to everything i do and say. also i dont judge others for what they think or how they believe, like others such as Suzy on twitter do me(this is also someone id like to meet in person in sandiego and have a long conversation with). i feel like everyone has the right to think or believe what they want--without others giving them a hard time, or feeling like they have the right to tell them how to think or feel. the problem with todays pro weed pro amnesty pro gay marriage crowd is theyve forgotten the first amendment applies to everyone and that we still have religious rights to. (and the right of freedom of association). to be able to say and believe whatever--without it affecting our popularity, or ability to find work, our ability to be a TV personality, own a baseball team, have a cooking show, be a radio talk show host, etc. Real friends would see what im saying and not think im condemning ALL women. so i dont know why AKgal was that way, and is why i said that, but cokeboy didnt understand, but he dont want to understand either and its the same way with many of u.

however im a sinner too, so it must be said to be truthful, if my blog was as popular as Poker atlas and Robs blog is, and all them pokerstars websites and blogs--i wouldnt be as resentful. thats why i said i feel i have the same responsibility as rob does. for i report on anything and everything as does he, plus im more honest and truthful about how i feel, as is he. and i dont always do whats in my best interests but in the best interests of the game.

speaking of which theres something regarding integrity in poker rooms thats really bothered me for a long time. i hate the way poker rooms allow green and black chips on the table in NL games. this makes angleshooting so easy as a lot of people have poor eyesight and cant see chips well too far away. NOTHING should be on the table except $100 bills, and $5 chips and $1 chips. (and the coin u might put on top of ur stack) nothing else. what is the reason poker rooms allow the other chips? i assume its because a lot of floormen get tips, and they get the tips for making calls in favor of the regulars over the outsiders. so of course theyre going to do whatever promotes angleshooting. this really bothers me, and i wish there was a solution. The only true solution is for all the managers to be convicted of sin before God when they feel like ruling a way they know is unfair, no matter how big a tipper someone is.

i guess i am starting to write more like Rob does, at least in terms of longer blogs.

i am also making my blogs more professional, in that im avoiding saying certain words i used to use, because i am aware my fame is growing, my roll is growing, and its easier to get in this habit early. think of how popular will be once i score $25,000 or more in a major tourney in the next few years, and all the sites unfamiliar with me such as cardplayer and bluff magazine, wicked chops poker, find out about me.

all i hope is that i find the strength to get back to reno soon before i lose anymore. im down to only $5100, from $5500, and though id like to be around for all the tickets in sat nights drawing, i really should leave tomorrow afternoon. i was very lucky to talk the lady high up in the marketing dept into giving me a room totally free today, it wasnt easy.

be aware if u ever stay at the Tahoe Biltmore, do not take a room in the hotel itself, or the cottages in the back. the rooms across the street in the older looking part of the motel that for some reason cost a little less, are actually much nicer inside, have much better wifi that actually works, and fridges and microwaves which the rest dont have. they should be the ones costing the most, not the least.

They want the best of both worlds. I have had to organize unions myself at companies that wouldn't provide benefits to its workers that were working 50 hours a week. Today's world has ran with that Tony. We have female and male monsters that took the hard work of others and ran with this false sense of entitlement. Nice to see you honest though.

  6. Tony you are wrong about physical appearance. Remember, God created us. He created us male and female. He created us with an amazing, beautiful dignity. We need to reflect that dignity while we live in these bodies which He has given us. We need to show that we take care of these gifts from God which are our human bodies. Since we experience life on the physical plane, we need to make that care and gratitude known on the physical plane. Looking our best is our way of calling attention to the deeper beauty within ourselves. MIV

  7. I gotta say Tony the bit about green/black chips is simply crap. If you paid more attention to the table and played with your phone less (or whatever other distraction you are fixated on) you would be able to know the stack sizes at your table. Even with perfect eyes can you tell if a guy has three $100 bills or six next to his chips? Don't expect the poker players union to rise up and support you on this perceived injustice...

    1. While you're at it Rob... Recommend they get rid of the red chips too. I'm colorblind so it's hard to see them. Players could just create elaborate towers in front of them and then use $100 bills. You could put mirrors over the tables for the players whose stacks get so high they can't see the table. Or maybe have use an intercom so they can page in their bets. Even better allow players to bet electronically so you never have to speak

  9. i decided i wanted to be here for tonights drawings since i had so many more tickets than anyone else, and u are allowed to get picked up to 2 times out of 9 total. also i got lucky to recover over $900 on the VBJ today (back over $6000) and get a few more tickets, plus the $55 in COMP dollars needed for a free room saturday nite, which would be well over $100 if paying cash. this will also have me here sunday morning, which is worth an additional $30 to me in that weeks free play.

    ReplyDelete
  10. ive consulted with Cutter about tonights drawing, and its the type of promo that would be good for Benny, since he has a car and is nearby. people who actually live closer than reno (reno isnt considered local) get 5x points all day tues, and theres a huge drawing at the end of sept where 3 people get anywhere from $1000-9000 in cash or free play. as few people as will be in it, maybe id be better off taking tickets for that drawing instead of cash tonight if im drawn tonight? but i dont like to turn down cash and commit, but the EV would be a ton more valuable. this is where someone like Chaperone or Benny could do very well with this promotion, being about the only one taking drawing tickets instead of cash or free play on each weeks saturday weekly drawings, and being pretty much guaranteed to win something the end of sept on the final sat drawing. Cutter says its GOOD that the ONLY way to have tickets in the BIG drawing is to win a smaller drawing first, and take the tickets instead of the other prize if u win.

    can someone help figure out the added value, the best way to do it, does it raise the VBJ by 1-2%

  11. If you want someone to help you figure this out, don't you think you need to spell out the T&C for the draws?

  12. that drawing i kept dropping the puck into the wrong spot on the board, (pachenko type board where u drop a puck) and i only won 2 things in the drawing. $25 cash, and a $50 gift certificate for the restaraunt that dont need to be used til oct 30. Better not to use it now, but to store food in the fridge on the first part of a longer term stay. i seriously was hoping for bigger sized prizes or free play. id have took the 50 tickets instead of the $50 food had i been right, but i was wrong---all of the weekly tickets are going into that drum end of sept--so i really should be here then.

  13. tony says a lot of dumb shit and i usually disagree with him but he is right about the chips thing, there is no reason whatsoever for big chips to play in a low stakes nl game. it's too easy for people to add to their stacks, go south, hide big chips etc.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You are correct JB, big chips allow simpletons to be taken advantage of at a $1-2 table. So while you are at it no red chips either, just $1 chips. If an angleshooter has six stacks of 20 chips in a triangle he can have the back-middle stack contain red chips on the bottom and $1 chips on top to hide his true stack size from the simpletons. Please create a gofundme site to finance you and Tony going to Washington to protest this current grave injustice and demand federal legislation to protect simpleton poker players!

  14. So that whole speech about how it was good to pay your Reno rent for a month in advance because it would keep you from wandering off to someplace where you would play machines instead of poker--that was just bullshit, right? Because now you not only went someplace specifically to play machines, but now you're talking about saving things for another "longer" stay in the future.

    1. is it your opinion that me paying a months rent was a mistake if there was any chance i might go out of town?

      u still pay ur rent back in north carolina before u take vacations in utah, correct?

      seeing i have $800 more than i did when i took the bus to carson city from reno, i dont think me coming up here worked out too badly--as long as i still go home tomorrow. out of laundry too.

      the main reason i wanted to get away was i hate not having wifi at home, and no way to play games on facebook.

      Delete
    2. My situation--and that of most other people--is totally different. Those of us who pay monthly rent (rather than own) do so under a lease, with terms of, typically, a year at a time. That precludes suddenly not paying to go on vacation. But even if we could, it would be insane to stop paying rent to go on vacation, since doing so would mean putting everything in storage, then finding a new place to live upon return. The expense and inconvenience would vastly outweigh any savings on rent during a vacation. Nobody operates that way.

      But my point was not about whether you should pay monthly or weekly. My point was about your own words. You said that you decided to pay monthly not only to save money over weekly, but to keep yourself from going other places to play VBJ. Presumably the idea was that if you had already paid a month's rent, you would decide that it was wasting the rent money to go somewhere else, and that would make you decide to stay put. Right?

      Finally, it cannot be the case that the decision to go play the stupid machines was a good one if you happened to end up winner and a bad one if you happened to end up loser. That's like saying that a decision to put $1000 on red on a roulette wheel is a good one if you happen to win, but a bad one if you happen to lose. It turns the whole idea of good versus bad decision-making into a purely retrospective assessment--a useless way to look at things.

    1. Tony -
      Not quite sure why you're talking about getting a car to get back and forth from Reno. Are you making this decision based on your earning $1500 over the past 2 days? Do you think that's reasonable or expect to continue your VBJ win rate? Have you forgotten that you were around $1k less than a year ago precisely because you were running bad at the VBJ? If I were you, I'd be happy I took the win at the VBJ and never touch the machines again!

  20. up to $7187 now after buying some food to replace ones i threw out to be safe, and after depositing a large amount in the atm. Yes, i won about $290 more tonight in the $1-2 game here at the peppermill, which was enough to put me at $15 an hour again for 392 hours of play. am close to the 500 hours pokerdogg suggested. It was nice of Lorraine (the older lady who works as a prop) to drive me to the store and back along with just the bank atm, and not accept the cash id offered for gas. (when she got off work at the time the game ended). i was glad to see it end, for it was quite shorthanded and i had my $40 buyin now over $300.

    i should probably start slowly raising my initial buyin from $40 since i have so much more now. maybe $60-70?

    i found this on twitter, and of course, with only 140 characteres allowed, this was way too long to post on twitter, but i have to say i clicked on it, read the article in full, and although the pastor is well within his rights to cancel the funeral, i dont think Jesus wouldve approved. this is a stand most of u probably wouldnt expect me to take, since i dont believe in homosexuality, But the Bible says that God loves gays just as much as he loves all the rest of us sinners, and its not a wedding, its a funeral. not the same thing at all. So i feel the church was in the wrong, and also i think this is another thing me and Grump would agree on. Him and i both seem to have a sense of standing up for the victims in various different type of things.

  23. Tony, a month ago you were seeking advice on how to be more likeable on the internet. Posts like this . . . and tweets about how "rich" you are are not the way to improve your image.

    2. Yes saying you´re rich is really boring. I suggest having a bone filet with a glass of Stags Leap Cabernet, then spending a weekend in a fancy hotel, before returning home to your rennovated condo and expensive car. That would be much more modest.

    3. You're both right. Posts like this are totally normal. People read this and identify with Tony. They want to be his friend. There's no fodder for trolls anywhere in these types of manifestos.

      I guess my previous advice to Tony (e.g., lay off the political/religious rants because, regardless whether he is capable of processing it, people just do not agree with his point of view on most things ) was way off the mark. I guess my suggestion that he stop posting on RTP was wrong too, as it's obvious how likable he's become over there as well.

      Part of me thought Tony just more interested in trolling for attention. Here too, I guess I was wrong.

    4. Didn't mention anything you referred to above. Maybe i touched a nerve. We all need to enjoy our success a little or what's the point. You're life is good and you don't mind telling people about it. I'm sure you have earned it. Tony's life probably feels pretty good (all relative of course) at the moment compared to some of the extreme lows and he wanted to shout about it. It may not make him popular but it is understandable.

      Really not sure where i mentioned religion, politcs or posting on RTP.

  24. Now that you are up past the $7,000 mark keep doing what you are doing and play the $1-$2 poker. Make goals and keep them. Might want to get the tooth fixed while you have the chance. Sounds like a fun trip and profitable as well.

    1. Tony if you are considering buying a car to get you around or to live in, you must get our driver's licence first. That could take some time as you need to have lessons and arrange to take the driver's test, and to pass it.

      If you buy a car now you will be lumped with a car that is sitting outside exposed to the elements and thieves, and you can't protect it. You need to read and understand that buying a car is just the beginning. You have to pay to maintain it, put fuel in it, pay licence fees for it. The list goes on and on. So please check out all these things before you do something you will regret. Talk to some of your friends who have owned cars and see what they say.

  26. Tony,
    Congrats on your recent success and getting your roll to over $7,000. When you do hit your big tournament score, will you be giving interviews to the poker media or will you decline like Daniel Colman (One Drop Winner)? I would love to see you with Kara Scott, but I would understand if you decided against it for moral reasons.

    4. Wait. Hold on. I am confused.

      I thought that you would hate someone like Kara Scott. She's attractive and gets more attention than the ugly ladies of poker and has made a living off of being in the poker industry. Why would you be willing to get a room with her???

  27. up to $7330, its a new high, but i couldve left the game with over $7500 had i left at the crest point. still i just reached 400 hours logged, and still have $15 hour. How many think $15 an hour is good at $1-2 if it remains that once 1000 hours is reached?

    quite disappointed in the final hand, the loosest guy whod just sat and ended up losing $400 before rebuying raised my raise of his straddle, and i saw he had $95 more left and it would be $35 more for me to call him, so i went ahead and pushed my AK there all in. turned out he had QQ that time, so i was glad to see Kj4 on the flop. Q hit the turn and i left the table still with $452.

  28. Tony, $15 an hour for a 1000 hours is a huge hurdle. That is more money than the average person makes a year bring home at any entry level job. You have to remember yours is bring home cash. This puts your hourly at nearly $20 an hour if you had to make that threw gainful employment. I would like to officially apply to be your poker publicist when the time come.

    2. ur comments are whats really utter bullshit on this blog, and most them havent been approved and for good reason. the only really smart comment i found from u was the one agreeing that having weird oddball chips be in play in $1-2 NL games to be a poor idea.

      all the readers know this isnt true--or i wouldve have made the decisions about whether to track lake tahoe play or cali play in my $1-2 NL results before the results took place.

      and after 409 hours of play, im still at $15 per hour. the standard deviation has also dropped, to $114, its dropping very slowly. total roll of $7430 now. not counting about $8 seals and about $20 bovada.

    3. Good on you Tony for having the balls to stand up to this wanker, and tell it like it is. For too long this POS has been giving you a hard time, without you ever seeming to react to his crap. Well said.
