hmm, i was about to post the link to the ad, but i see the ads been removed. no wonder they didnt answer my email, they must of got "too many inquiries" and took down the ad. it was fairly close to a city bus, probably the one WEC is referring to. it was a hell of a long bus ride to the only good casino called wild horse pass.
i fully intended to go there--after my 4 free nights in laughlin were up. And i went to a lot of trouble to protect myself from being discovered in Laughlin. (i had them list me as an unregistered guest so if trolls called up checking to see if im registered there i wont show up). But first i was going to play a little VBJ in a place id be all alone, and no one would bother me.
no bums constantly walking up wanting $1, staring at all my credits and trying to pretend they didnt know i was playing multiple spots, (slots of fun is full of black homeless people hustling credits and looking for nothing but a free beer from the cocktail waitress). And i didnt want anyone trying to sit or otherwise disturbing me while i played--felt like that would greatly increase my odds of winning.
so as soon as i get there, i check into my room for 4 nights at the Pioneer, and start off winning $200 on the VBJ and finding out about the great promo tues wed and thrus. for every 250 points earned ($1950 coin in) u get to spin a wheel for $10-100 in free play. so thats a very good payback of close to 1% or a bit higher if u are lucky.
the max number of wheel spins u can earn are 3 each of those days for 750 points total $5850 coin in, and id be shocked if im telling Cutter something in this blog he dont already know. for the 750 points i earned the day i played, i got $45 in free play out of it, which added a bit less than 1% to my payback.
But the Pioneer is more busy than the river palms, and theres only 1 VBJ there. so i really wanted to go to the river palms where its quiet and 5 machines in the middle of the night. but i was worried id have to play at night without a card since someone else who knows Cutter screwed me and him before claiming our free play.
Little did i know the river Palms closed down for business sept 5, will remain closed til sept 26 when it reopens, and it was also bought out by Dottys and will have a new name when it reopens. no idea on what will become of the VBJ machines.
so tonight, i ended up going to Harrahs, losing $200 in the $2-5 NL game (2 buyins of $100) and of course did NOT use a players card to remain anonymous.
was disgusted with myself for going to laughlin instead of just staying on the bus all the way to Phoneix, was disgusted id lost so much there and they closed the River Palms, (my favorite place to be away from others) and starting to get very worried id lost/spent way too much since leaving reno.
and i felt like my plan to go to Phoenix was now a very poor idea. for one reason id lost too much money to afford that nice weekly, their ad was no longer online, (heres a similar one from another property) http://phoenix.craigslist.org/nph/apa/4654367708.html in a different location, but the other ad was by fort mdowell different company placed it.
u see id been right by fort mc dowell, but a hell of an inconvenience from the good poker rooms with lots of tables. and as often as i was looking at bravo, the clincher that make me decide definitely to NOT GO to phoenix was when bravo showed nothing but 2 $4-8 games and NO $1-2 spread limit games at 8pm on friday night. about the only thing Ft mc dowell had was a $1 VBJ machine and im sure it was full all the time too.
i was in Phoeniz about 15 yrs ago, and id sworn that casino had TONS of live tables going at once.
main thing i really wanted to do when i had the $10k in reno was to get into a really nice place to live for a month (because of the condition of my previous apt in reno when poor) and i was quite embittered that was going down the tubes.
so my blog post wasnt a lie, it was fully intending to be true, (within a few days) but the plans got all messed up. the only real lie was the $379 airfare to throw everyone off as to where i was. and of course, the AndyFezzik acct is also a lie, i made up that account and andy has known that for a long time its me who posted as him several times.
but tonight i made an unwise choice, i wanted OUT of laughlin quick as possible, and i shouldve waited til morning and took the $40 bus into vegas or the $50 bus into Phoenix (gotobus.com) greyhound is $72 to vegas from laughlin.
so i wasted $250 for a cab to vinces house, where im living now, and as im running out of money--its the ONLY cheap place i can afford for a month, and i might head out to LA to make sure i cant play anything but poker and regrind. maybe i should sit here and play on Bovada. new roll is only about $6600, and i dont have the month paid for in a nice place i told everyone i did.
yeah im out almost $3000+ since leaving vegas. but i dont think i lost that much on VBJ. a lot of it was transportation expenses, misc expenses. some big losses at poker, but about $2000 of it was lost at VBJ. but not all on the good machines, $400+ of it was lost on the even money VBJ u remember.
i wish to God id went to Toledo to live with Ray, ive never trusted him fully to be sincere about becoming a christian, u see he is the last person id think would want God in his life. he never had any interest in God when i was a young kid 25 yrs ago.
But his facebook posts are showing his sincerity and his emails about how living for God is the only thing in life that really matters and how VBJ and machine play is so evil and ungodly. and how God took away his addiction to them machines he had at one point.
Quote of his on facebook message " These are the times Tony, spirit and soul overcome flesh, i took a drive tonight and thought about stopping at hollywood and i drove by it and just thought about christ and how it takes from him when i do things i know are bad"
he's also showed my blog to Jenny, an old time monte carlo regular about my age who played all the time like me years ago and is single and beautiful but never dates anyone and is also a Christian. i think shes quit playing. he said Jenny really loved and enjoyed the blog and was laughing. id bet Toledo Tom knows her personally.
whatever i need serious psychological help in overcoming my desire to bet way too much to get unstuck, got to quit caring about losses and making them much worse. id lost far less on VBJ had i just limited my max bets to 1.5% of the roll no matter how much the count, but i bet quite bit more a few times, up to almost 5% of the roll. so idiotic no wonder im out so much.
u see, im going to get in serious trouble if i dont get help. i went around to a ton of people and told them i hoped they lost too cause i lost and would have to commit a horrible crime to get money. and i told many people how ugly i thought they were. (mostly all old women sitting alone). same as i went off on the old asian lady at Parx i told claudia about and was scared to ever go into parx again in case she told the police. i went off in detail how i hoped they lost everything to their name and said i lost all of my money too.
i cannot handle losing, and i cant be around where i can play machines. Toledo, or los angelos or not leaving Vinces house and grinding online, those are the only choices. the $1-2 games in vegas are just much harder to beat.
im not strong enough to stop--only Prayer and God can help me. i need ray to pray for me and every other Christian reading this blog. and to ask God to forgive me for lying to the readers about being in Laughlin, i only did it avoid worrying about being picked up there.
