well i feel a lot better now even though i paid a cabbie some money for my safety (lots of bums sleep near the downtown vegas BOA atm) and i still have my daily $8 bus pass. but at least that money's off my hands where i cant lose it back on the VBJ. of course, im still carrying plenty to work with, but far less than i was.
also while downtown i played a little bit in the Golden nugget, and my friends from out of town visiting can find me playing there monday and tues nites if they look. (or morning, etc). i have both those 2 days FREE and another $75 in promo chips. i was really surprised i could use that code i posted a long while back on RTP more than once during sept, and im wondering if anyone else even bothered to try to use it.
now i did manage a small win of $36 at the Nugget in the $1-2 NL, and im still holding $17 an hour overall. but i was up $201 in the game once, (and briefly over $11,300) a guy makes it $20 on the button whose not been playing loose, and for some reason (maybe being tired?) i put him on a big pair and not an ace.
so the flop comes A34 and i have 77. i check, and he bets $30 and so does another guy check. it seems to me he is just hoping we both fold. other guy folds, so i bet $140 expecting him to fold a better overpair. he shoves with AJ and i fold and feel stupid. and thats the lesson for today.
earlier when i wasnt nearly as tired, i won $153 at the wynn playing very well there. and of course $900+ more on the VBJ elsewhere. my host told me im now ahead about $800 for the month on the VBJ. gotten about another few hundred in free rooms there besides.
and depending on how i do in the $50 double or nothing sng im in now on bovada, ill have either $650 or $750. i have won the previous 7 sngs however, so i got a shot.
i still need to spend a lot for a new phone and dentistry, and i dont know why this phone isnt turned off yet. every day i get a text saying my phone will be shut off sept 7 2014, and how to port it out to another carrier. and yet it still works. and of course i paid NOTHING this month since i knew they were closing down.
would really like for someone to explain to me--why i'm having so much easier time winning at all forms of poker now, than i was back in the mid 2000s when most people claimed the games were easier. seems to me its much easier to win NOW than it ever was in the past.
