Never had any idea which regular at the V is Tarbash the Egyptian, and i thought it might be the one old man who usually wins and i dont think likes me too much since he moved seats. he had a black hooker sitting behind him who was unusually good looking for a black hooker, so i doubt it was him. i ended up winning over $300 in that game and in fact i won at almost everything i played, except for the $4-8 omaha where i played til it broke and broke even.
no sign of alysia chang in it, and it sucks now that i finally have the roll for $8-16, the game no longer exists. i sure dont have the roll for $15-30, and i wonder what the proper roll is for 15-30?
speaking of which, click on the link to alysia changs google profile in the comments. that profile was created over 5 yrs ago, and theyre listed as MALE. now why would a woman list herself as male? somewhere is seriously weird about this.
the night started off good, i won a little over $100 on the VBJ shufflemaster, and then took the bus to the wynn. lost $100 fairly quickly on a bad play, then rebought $500 and started complaining about not being able to button straddle for more than $6. lost most of it too, and made a big overbet on a hand i missed my double gutshot str8 on, because i was pissed at his over bet of $46 into a $24 pot on the flop. he had QQ and flop was J73 with one heart and i had 89 hearts. turn came 5, forcing me call, and i missed. bet $200 on the end and he called, so i left pissed, didnt even bother to cash in my chips.
which turned out to be a good thing, i was going to throw the dice to let off steam, and before it got to me i seen the same lady throw a four 3 times in a row, so i handed my whole stack to the stickman and asked him to put it on the four. turns out i had $137 and they put the buy button on it. no idea what i shouldve paid for the right odds.
well of course she threw another 4, and i took all of it down, and left the table with $463. never hung around to actually roll.
walked straight to the Venetian poker room, passing the VBJ on the way but it was full. no one made any huge bets, so there mightve been no counters there.
so i was close to even, and started off playing omaha, not much happened, then the game broke. got lucky in the $1-2 to win 2 big pots, one by catching a 2 outer on the river, and one by calling a guys bluff.
left and on the way back to my room, won another $300+ more on the same shufflemaster VBJ. so i ended up with $10,087. Couldve easily gone the other way--i walked up to the machine with $879 cash, was temporarily at under $500, but left with over $1200. for some reason i did far better in the final 30 minutes when all the money was on 1 spot, since i ran so low earlier i had to combine all my tickets to make bigger bets and have money for doubles and splits.
if u remember $400+ of the loss at VBJ was on the even money machine, so that really wasnt a proper VBJ machine. thats a machine theres 0 excuse to ever play.
disappointed Herbie is wasting all his time on the freeroll promo at lvh instead of hanging out, a real gambler can win at any game without needing a promo, and im proud i play real poker without depending on promos to win for me. instead, its the quality of my decisions that win for me, thats how a real professional does it.
