NO LONGER IN VEGAS

i decided that vegas isnt a good place for me, due to my tendency to OVERBET the $5 dealers angels VBJ at the venetian, and also the shufflemaster one at slots of fun, both of which the maximum is $500 or more instead of $100. also the games are so much tougher in vegas, i wanted to go somewhere new to play where they might be easier. but overall i still came out ahead at the poker i think, but by very little. i won $300 at the V once, $89 once, $800 once, but then i lost about $600 at the nugget and $450 at the wynn at poker, so overall im winning a lot less per hour at poker in vegas than in reno.

i was so concerned about vegas not being good for me, i decided to leave immediately before i go do any more damage to my roll, or to lose my temper again due to my emotional state of mind and not to curse out anyone else telling them i just lost all my money and i hoped they lose too.

which means i wont get to ever see Doreen G, who wanted to meet me but oh well.

so now im somewhere else i probably shouldve visited a long time ago. several casinos in this area, with good poker games, although on bravo i looked when i arrived, and the game nearest to me wasnt going. Instead i went and spent money taking a room, prepaid $1100 for a month with deposit, and only took it because it was advertised as LUXURIOUS and in the nicest zip code and safest zip code in the whole metro area, and thats certainly the case.

nice fridge, kitchen, wifi, etc and all looks good. far enough out of the city to be pretty safe. its a motel, but its a nice motel. and the nearest poker room is only 8.3 miles away in a cab. then theres 2 buses a day to a couple of better casinos much further away, and im also investigating the shuttle bus info to those casinos, but its quite a bit of a bus ride just to go to the nearest shuttle pickup point.

so now i have a roll of about $6500, but thats still enough to work with i think, at least the rents paid, and im away from vegas. just wish i knew at least one person in this city is all.

theres a VBJ machine, paying 3-2 with good rules, $1 minimum, and on certain days, u get close to 1% free play back for the first approximately $6150 ran thru it and nothing for more than that. complicated promotion, but looks quite valuable but its only on certain weekdays. But since its pretty full of people most of the day, im sure ill be playing poker. its a good sized room and is on bravo, but often dead late at night. good promotions too.

and theres other rooms further out, like 20-45 miles. in other parts of the metro area. I'm positive Chaperone is familiar with this casino and has been here. im positive hes played this VBJ too.

and im tired, need to go back to sleep. ordered some food for the frigde and im eating in then going straight to sleep. also found out mom wont have the net for a few days too.

quite worried about the us getting into a war with isis and russia. we should stay out of the Ukraine, and concentrate on ISIS.

my suitcase i checked instead of carrying it onboard contained a ton of clean shirts, new pants, and 30 unread donald duck mickey mouse comics that i didnt leave behind like the other 80 since i hadnt read them yet. and i still need to pay for a phone.

this place is such a nice place to live, and games are so easy on Bovada, maybe i should sit at home and just grind out $20 sngs. at least i feel 100% safe here.

  1. You were winning easily in Reno. Why didn't you go back there?

    Where are you now?

  2. Tony, my friend, every time I think that the decisions you make could not get any worse, you still surprise me. $1100 for rent and casinos over eight miles away for a guy without a car ... geez. Please carefully consider my suggestion that I made in your last post and ship me $2500 before you burn the rest of the famous sockroll.

  3. (1) What happened to the air conditioner and microwave oven you bought?

    (2) Wasn't the whole idea of pre-paying rent in Reno a month at a time to keep you from yielding to urges to go other places?

    (3) We can start a betting pool on the number of days before Tony says, "Prepaying for a month's rent here was a terrible idea."

  5. Have fun in Mesquite! How is it that at times you identify a problem perfectly and then next minute you've completely forgotten? It's not how much you bet on machines; it's the machines themselves. It's actually gambling itself but you will never see that. Where is the introspection? You need to spend a good couple of hours before you go to bed rereading your blogs. Look at your anger, your pride, your loneliness, your sense of entitlement and your relationship with family and friends. Then after a week or two, ask yourself of your are really enjoying your life. It's not a question of Vegas, Reno, Atlantic City, Los Angeles or any other location you go to; wherever you go there YOU are. And that is what needs to be taken care of and fixed.

  10. I think it was good for you to get out of Vegas. Good luck in your new mystery home.

  11. Tony you get good advice from people all the time you ignore completely. I'm going to give you some right now I hope you take. Stay in your room for 48 hours. Play on Bovada, watch some TV, get some rest and calm the fuck down. You didn't have a good last few day's but you still have enough to not panic. If you go blast off another 2K right now your going to death spiral straight into a card board box!

    1. It's been 20 years since I was in Elko, but all casinos and motels are on the main street, not 8 miles away from each other. I stayed at Stockmen's a couple days, and visited Red Lion on my way out of town.

    1. He'll have been there and back several times by then, Koala. And if he's in Timbuktu at the time, he'll drop everything and fly to Vegas just to play poker with you.

  15. Wah wah wah! Poor me -- I am a dumbshit and donked off two frigging grand in less than two days because I am a total gambling degenerate. Feel sorry for me ...

    You got what you wanted -- those friggin machines. You have traded your whole life for them.

    And no way are you dropping off the face of the earth. You can't live without the the attention you call to yourself.

    Man up.

    1. I'm sorry Alysia, but I'm not very partial to Japanese cuisine. I am allergic to most types of sea foods. Quite happy to try just about anything else though.

    2. Does steak float your boat? Josè Andreas also has Bazaar Meat at the SLS.

    3. By the way Koala, PLEASE do not ask TBC to come out to meet you. You can say that it would be pleasant to meet him in person and hang out but who knows how many thousands of $'s you'll be on the hook for if he loses money in Vegas while under the pretense of visiting you? Look what happened to PPP!

    4. I've forwarded Tony's indemnity demand up the ladder to my firm's general counsel. I'm awaiting instruction on how to proceed; in particular, whether to take initiative and file for declaratory judgment. Please be advised that should this matter blow up in litigation, Alysia, Rob, Coach and others can expect to be subpoenaed as fact witnesses.

    7. @PPP--Let me know if I have to testify. I will support you that you did NOT ask Tony to come out to visit you while in your Vegas.

      I will also testify that after he did come down to Vegas--without you asking him to do so because, among other reasons, why would you suggest he leave Reno when he was doing so well there--he did so with almost no notice. It was a surprise.

      After being frustrated because we were all playing at a venue when he is not allowed to enter, you and I went out of our way to arrange a game at venue where he could play. And for that, you are responsible for his losses?

      The good news is that, next time he presses any of us to play poker with him, we can decline because we don't want to be held personally responsible for his loses.

      I guess I'm gonna sue the girls with the short skirts waiting to get into the nightclub for any poker loses I have. I only stayed so long to look at them. Also, they distracted me and I made mistakes because of it.

    8. Wow Rob, i bet you don't even walk into these poker rooms, you strut! If you ever decide to auction off your members only jacket on ebay please let me be the first to know.

      Delete
    9. You know, Mr. Doe, with my bad back, it's more like hobbling into a poker room, neither a walk nor a strut.

      I'm sorry, but I'm pretty sure I gave away my Members Only jacket to Goodwill at least 10 years ago.

      However, if I do come across it, I will let you know and sell it to you for $1,000. Or $2K if I don't dry clean it first.

  18. Many of u will be glad to know i finally got around to calling my landlord in reno, and letting him know i moved out and wont be back, instead of making him wonder where i am.

    1. actually, it wasnt him i reached, it was his wifes voice on his answering machine and i left the message i was moving out and he was welcome to my things and my deposit. a bit surprised he didnt call back but whatever, i guess all is well.

  19. Tony, its a creep show on this blog, someone must have called FOX news because it announced you left Vegas on the bottom of the screen on the ticker tape! Good thing it wasn't MSNBC, i know you're a republican.

  20. Wake up man. You were running good for quite a stretch. Listen closely and straighten up.

  21. since the last time Tony disappeared, he went to Laughlin and didnt want anyone to know, i decided to do a little investigation of my own. I called the Riverside and Harrahs laughlin they hadnt seen anyone fitting my depiction of him, and then i called the River Palms and the Pioneer where he usually stays, and they claimed he isnt staying there.

    So to me it seems he must be in the Phoenix area. Fits the description of multiple casinos, and sounds like he is living at the hotel advertised on craigslist near Fort mc dowell, which often has no games going, and has video BJ games. According to what i have heard, theres multiple shuttle casino buses in that area too.

  22. Tony, I really don't know what to say. I thought you may have finally found your niche in Reno, building your roll and getting some semblance of stability in your life. But nope, you just can help but blow it all, dropping your possessions once again and go in search of that paradise, which doesn't exist. Can you explain why you didn't just return to Reno after the Vegas debacle. Everything is there waiting for you, just go back and regroup.
