at least i still have more money than i arrived in vegas with. not sure how or why, but i am still winning somewhat.

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.

  1. Is the 89 of hearts hand an example of the quality of your decisions that allows you to win?

    What about your decision to bet all of your chips on the four in craps? Is that an example of the high quality decisions you make?

    You are going to lose most of your roll in Vegas.

  2. Dude, are you trying to be offensive or are you just a natural? Assuming every attractive woman is a hooker is a good way to get your clock cleaned. Anyhow I was waiting for your apology before meeting you. And not just a generic one either. Do you have any comprehension of how mean spirited you've been towards me?

    1. 95% of the time a 40 yrs younger women means hooker. anyone familiar with vegas sees this all the time. i read personal ads u see, others on this blog never read them. thats how i see all the womens ads looking for BBC and find that disgusting, all the women listing their profiles as bisexual instead of straight and find that disgusting, and all the women who say they dont want older guys (please no one over 35) (from women in their 20s on ad websites) etc--with the exception of the ads from escorts of course. so from all my reading of personal ads, im an expert. do u ever read the personal ads?

      its hard to apologize til i know im in the wrong, otherwise if i do i just look like an idiot. ur google profile makes it look like i wasnt wrong. im not sure i trust these other guys not to keep ur secret.

      i wasnt mean spirited at all til u came out of nowhere on RTP and started bad mouthing me, claiming i dont have aspergers (a social disabilty in knowing how to relate and talk to women). everyone whose met me in person claims i do. its only natural i assume u are a long time troll who dislikes me for some other reason, most likely a comment i posted on the web somewhere, and then stalked ever since.

      people normally wait til they meet someone and get to know them before they develop an opinion of them one way or the other at least i always want to meet and get to know someone and see how they treat me in person before i know for sure if i like or dislike them.

    2. also women NEVER use the word dude either. thats the way guys talk. women dont do dangerous things like sky diving either.

      Delete
    3. One of my good friends is a woman who calls everyone dude.

      Delete
    4. One of the woman regulars at my local casino says dude all the time. My sister did sky diving, as did a number of my female classmates when we all went one time during university.

    5. Will I find that definition in any medical journals Aspergers: a social disabilty in knowing how to relate and talk to women . Uhhhhh, Tony you don't honestly believe that do you? You have been afflicted with a debilitating disease that makes you unable to be polite and respectful of women. If that is the case, you should just give up. Without medication this will likely hold you back for the rest of your life.

    6. If you substitute "people" for "women", then yes, it is a classic trait of Asperpers.

  4. Tony, who could Alysia be? She is definitely mysterious, with a hint of creepyness. A very nice touch for a Big Name Chatter! I think she demands constant attention she is different from typical blog harlots. Tony do you think she has any real substance or is she just lucky sperm in the sea of life?

    1. Hmmm ... it appeared to me that Alysia Chang has been offering Tony positive suggestions for some time. Also, she met some of da boyz in Las Vegas a week and a half ago and seemed to get along with them pretty well.

    2. lightning, whats ur explanation of why her google profile is listed as male. or why one of the people who seen her accidently called her he one time?

      Delete
    3. I understand where you're coming from lightning, but if you read what Tony says up there he is right she or he does change their tune. It depends on where you read her pasts posts. Tony has some very interesting "friends" on here! Most of the best advice I have seen on here has come from you actually lightning.

    4. You could be right lightning, but for now i am kinda going with Tony on this one.

    5. Maybe we should ask P.A.P.P. (Passive Aggressive Pete Peters) He may have the answers needed here!

    6. I don't know the answer to your question, Tony. You can't believe everything you see online. Triple P, Rob and Coach all met her. Her gender does not appear to be in dispute, yet your paranoia won't even let you trust some people you know.

      Delete
    7. Tony, you have raised this question about Alicia's profile before, and she answered it. Don't you remember?

      Delete
    8. Tony, your paranoia is getting the best of you. I know you have real issues with this. But, believe me, not every person sitting at a poker table knows you or reads our blog. Not every stranger in a poker room is "hamsterdam." As for Alysia's profile saying se is a male . . . that was prolly the default setting which she did not change. My Seals profile lists me as female because that was the default and I never changed it.

      There - simple explanation. Now please, move on . . .

      Delete
    9. well, at one point, one of u 3 guys started to accidently say he, and immediately corrected it, thinking i didnt catch it, but i did. (never said a word at the time).

      u would think anyone would correct this on google, and im sure google has such a default setting. prove it, im sure it will only say male if u specifically ask it to.

    11. Look I will settle this for once and for all; I will be at the Sahara Library tomorrow at 6pm because a friend is giving a talk on Florence (Italy) during the time of Dante writing The Divine Comedy. If you show up and listen to the talk all the way through, I promise to introduce myself.

    since when do you not chase promos?

    1. Some of you people are just a trip. Yeah, you're a real hustler alright! No wonder i never talk real poker with anyone. You probably still think a real cold deck is aces vs kings in a showdown hold 'em hand. Do you know what a crimp is yet? lol

      Delete
    2. It is no secret Tony chases promos. Do you want a list of infamous misadventures from Tony's blog in the last few years? Just look at the recent posts about the $100 blackjack coupon, it is enough to make you cry. Look at this current blog entry, it is so full of misunderstanding, it is amazing how Tony has managed to win money despite it all.

      Delete
    3. promos are fine if they turn a -ev game into a +ev game--not talking about poker.

      but sitting with a ton of local nits making their living off poker isnt how u win money, no ones winning overall in that game. and the freeroll money they chop weekly is just their own money back they paid in that weeks drop. seems silly. its not a good promo like aa carcked ot getting paid for hi hands like the peppermill does.

    4. You can't beat the LVH game cos you're bad at poker. All the regs do. Herbie has been crushing it.

      Delete
    5. the only people herbie plays are u and the other regulars, so if hes crushing it, then whose losing? must be the other regulars.

      anyway u and herbie were there on a sun and mon and tues getting hours,not on a weekend when there might be a few outsiders who dont care about the freeroll. herbie also said they dont have the $4-8 limit anymore. how does Mark find non regs inside that empty casino on a weekday who arent part of the freeroll group of regs to sit and play?

      Delete
    6. also id beat the game quite easily now, since at the time i wasnt beating the game and getting pissed was when my roll was next to nothing, often not even $2000, and often wasting away in limit games. almost all the time i got really pissed in that game was when i was playing $4-8. i play totally different with a big stack that a small stack.

      example, ive got way over $300 on the table most of the time now, and often straddle the button if shorthanded. especially if a guy like u or Rob is the BB.

      Delete
    7. The fact you think Rob and I have a similar game proves my point. Oh and Monday was Labor Day. Plenty of tourists.

  7. You played bad and got lucky today. I hope you make better choices tomorrow.

  8. Either you got overpaid on the 4 which I doubt or you bet other things as, 137 would pay 274 - 7 for the vig = 404 if you had to pay the $7 vig upfront, 130 would pay 260 + 130 = 390 so 463 is way off.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no all i bet was that one hand. maybe i got overpaid or maybe i had cash in my pocket id forgot about, or maybe i had $157 and thought it was $137. i dunno.

      if i had $157, then it means i mislogged my session results by $20 (i put the cashout as $137, thinking that was waht i left the game with)

      Delete
    2. 157 it is,
      as that pays 317 - 8 vig = 463 total

      Delete
    3. The 157's google profile was set as a default of 137, hence the confusion.

  11. TBC Sir you are an idiot. What do you care whether Alysia Chang is a girl, a hooker, or a guy. It makes no difference. You are a professional gambler. A very wacky guy. You play low stakes poker and are around 10K. You hit a one outer on that crazy craps bet. You have a roof over your head and money in your shoe or somewhere. Life is just one big session. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.

    ReplyDelete
  12. And if you can't meet me at the Sahara Library tomorrow night, I will be at http://vegaswineandfood.com/index.html on Saturday at Red Rock. Life does NOT revolve around gambling, Tony. There ARE other things to do in Vegas. Get out of your comfort zone and become multi-dimensional!

    Honestly the only reason why you think ALL attractive women under 40 are hookers is because you are looking on personals and in casinos. What about attending church? What about cultural events? You need to do something different, especially now that you've exhausted all possibilities in your current world view.

    ReplyDelete
  13. what does "exhausted all possibilities mean?" most of the women who gave me their phone numbers ive never contacted, and thats because i never feel like its a good time to do so. ive always gotta be out making the money to survive and become in better shape and have a better life. all 7 days a week and as long as im awake, i never feel i can take time off til i have my tooth fixed, have a much better phone for at least $179, no cheap ones, and my rent paid 2-3 months at a place i really want to stay at, not just cause its cheap.

    and i know if im losing i wont be good company so i dont call then. plus im awake while others sleep. im sure many are surprised ive not got back in touch and call, although i do write back online. probably looks odd to them.

    how would i know whose u at red rock? and how long is the talk for? could be over 2 hours i dunno. why not suggest something other than gambling that i might actually be interested in doing, such as miniature golf, an amusement park such as a water park, (no skydiving no roller coasters, etc, just waterslides). pinball machines, movies etc. why not invite me to ur church?

    yeah theres attractive women around under 35 but they dont want a guy my age. my problem was when i was under 35, i went with ones over 35, so now that i am too old, i never got a chance to have a normal girl whose young. i basically spent my life just trying to survive instead of to find a girlfriend.

    i feel ive missed a lot never having the experience of being married. i basically dont have the time to date. but i still want someone to come home to every morning when im done gambling, that i know 100% is straight and not wanting anywhere other than me, who 100% loves me and wont leave me. and wont fool around on the side.

    in this culture nowdays, thats hard to find, and i wish i was born 100 yrs ago.

  14. I'm going to have to assume that you are not a student of history. One hundred years ago, in the year 1914, at around this time, World War I started. As a Canadian, you would have been expected to fight for the British Empire and sent over to Europe for king and country. Do you know how many people died during WWI? Do you have any idea how horrible trench warfare was? Did you know that the first victims of gas attacks were Canadians? And those who did survive, they were forever changed by the horrors of the Great War. There were no resources to help those who were shell shocked. Perhaps women were different back then and you may have found someone to love you but I'm pretty certain that life as you currently know it would not exist.

    Window A/C units, Archie comics, Las Vegas, Reno, dealers' angel machines, etc...man, you have it GOOD.

    Also no relationship is possible without WORK. No woman is going to love you unless you bring something to the table in terms of emotional commitment, attention and a sense of stability to the table. You don't have the ability of give of yourself to a woman because with your tendency to survive, it's all about you and you don't have the generosity of spirit to make it about another person. Women cheat because they aren't getting what they need at home. What do you think a woman will do when you're out all night playing poker and in a bad mood when you come home in the morning? How long will she put up with that?

  15. I didn't know Tony was Canadian. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

    In Tony's defense, if he was born 100 years ago he would have been 4 years old when WW1 ended, and most certainly would not have been sent to Europe...until WW2.

  16. Tony,
    When will you go back to Reno and only grind poker? Your roll is down to 8,000 and I'm guessing the majority of it is from machines and blackjack. Stop the insanity. Don't go broke again. How many people will it take to tell you the key to your success for it to sink in and you start to prosper? Do you want to be successful or are you scared of it?

  17. Ray tells me that its not what God can do for me that matters, but what i can do for God. i certainly need Gods help controlling all my bad habits and my emotions to them. also need God to give me more love for those i despise due to them being so annoying and rude and inconsiderate of how i like to have things be done so i can win. i feel a lot of bitterness and resentment being too afraid to go talk to hookers and get them to come hang out because of all the blacks guys around them, so im too gunshy and am alone. lost over $1000 on VBJ got pissed at the folks nearby, those misplaying their hands but i didnt want to get up til the shoe ended being a good plus count, and since i kept playing raising my bets i lost big. walked to the door and told all the people how much i hoped they all lost too. vegas isnt good for my emotional health, so i booked my ticket out of here tonight for $379 and im leaving about 1am. i think i wont be posting as much. its nonrefundable too so i cant back out now.

    1. Run, Forest, run!

      All your anger is misdirected. So much of what you believe and write is so astoundingly self-centered and mean-spirited. As everyone who follows you knows, it was only a matter of time before Mr. Martingale bit you in the ass again.

      Here is my suggestion: ship me $2500 on PayPal, leaving you with about $5000. If you build the sockroll back up to $10,000 I'll ship it back and you'll have a nice bonus. If you blow the rest of your money (a very likely scenario), I'll ship it before you start rooming in cardboard box central and you get a last chance to blow it.

      If you croak first, I reserve the right to blow it on filets and cabernet if I can find someone else to join me in the meal. Any takers? Anyone here by any chance like filets and cabernet? Or I'll go to Colorado and look for a partner to eat some tacos and drink some Baja Blast at Taco Bell. Any takers on that?

  20. Tony, what about everything we talked about during lunch? You were making $15 an hour playing poker in Reno. Yes, you were convinced it would not last. But why not continue playing to see. Even if it dropped to $10 an hour, you'd still be doing OK. You still have $8,000. Plenty of money to grind poker with. Regroup and do the right thing while there is still time.

    As I write this, I know it won't do any good. But, much like you, I guess there are certain lessons I'm forced to learn over and over again.

  25. Wow Alysia, I was thinking Groundhog Day myself as I was reading all this. I usually avoid reading this blog because I most of Tony's posts read like extended twitter rants and it hurts my mind to deal with it for long but I decided to look in at it this time. I see good advice after good advice that he never follows and this has been going on for years. Personally I think he'd be wise to send half his money to Lightning to keep him from throwing it into another machine but he'd never believe someone else would take his money and not run off with it at the first chance. Well I'll check the blog again in another year so I can see what other good advice he's ignoring. Till then .............where is that VBJ machine again??
