Rob wouldve enjoyed playing at my table at Planet H tonight. i was doing good early on there, til the game got filled up with locals instead of tourists, and i include the guy from Chicago as a local, since he was a winning player who plays an awful lot more poker than a real tourist would. What wouldve interested Rob was u guessed it, blogger material for him.
u see, the girl on my immediate left, and the guy with her on her immediate left who wasnt really her BF, were both bartenders at the MGM itself, (he probably knows them). and they chatted nonstop to each other for hours (and the Chicago guy). she talked the whole time about wanting to fool around with other female employees, and made it clear she was Bi, so of course Rob wouldve been interested. and this girl wasnt ugly like so many straight out lesbians are. Id been far more interested in the girl on the OPPOSITE end of my table, at least she didnt have tattoos and was interested in men. i dont think she was taken either and ive seen her at a poker table before but no idea her name.
Later on Koala and Alysia finally showed up, after their lunch date at circus steakhouse, but as u can see on twitter, alysia didnt sit at my table. and for all the wrong reasons too its very sinful in Gods eyes to judge people for how they appear to look, for as the Bible says, man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart. i certainly would never refuse to let a girl be my girlfriend just because she wasnt good looking. i dont her to be ugly looking, but she dont have to be good looking either.
i miss the old days when i was in my early 20s and in high school. back then women thought i was attractive, and even gay men thought so as well. i wish i had a picture to show u, other than the ones mom has on facebook, i know exactly which picture im thinking of. (the one of me in the old wichita singles newsletter from 1987).
when u pass 40, and start needing glasses (i worry terribly about my eyes when im old, if i need glasses now, grandma almost went blind due to cataracts til she was operated on, it does run in our family). but thats when u start looking ugly to women. also most women like much bigger and fatter men. men like Vince in other words. the only women whose ever said i looked good in the last couple years was Josie. and im sure she only said that to be nice. Im not even sure if claudia thought so.
they say its men who judge women for their looks, but thats not true for me--im not nearly as judgemental as most. i only care about whether a woman is willing to commit to me and tell me she loves me. her values, beliefs and ability to establish trust is much more important than what she looks like. the other really important quality a woman needs is to be 100% straight and not into women. nothing is cool about bisexuality its gross. and i know Jesus is able to change hearts and minds. I certainly dont have any attraction to men.
and another thing thats made it really hard on me to be accepted is not having a car (even women without a car want this--which is being selfish and unrealistic) and that i dont drink, when most all people, men and women, want to sit around and drink alcohol when out on social occasions. it makes u not fit in. but i grew up around nothing but Christian people and in a private Church school, so i never was around any bad influences. not til i was an adult and homeless a lot, and by then, i was already settled in my ways. no one starts drinking unless its before they are in their 20s. after that its too late to pick up bad habits like alcohol and drugs.
but anyway--lets get back to rob vegas poker. im not like him in that i cant relate to how he isnt turned off by women into women instead of men. but we think exactly alike on the button straddle. u see these 2 players on my left kept doing it for $10 continually, and i was so pissed off by the guys comments he likes it the way that doesnt protect the integrity of the game instead of the way that does protect it (the way the golden nugget and wynn and the Peppermill do it).
the #1 priority of all casinos should be to make sure no seat has an unfair advantage over any other, this is quite important and yet so many places allow just that when they do the button straddle wrong. sometimes u cant move seats. i lost several pots calling the guy down, and as soon as they sat, i knew i shouldve got up.
id have lost big at Planet H, but as koala was declaring he was going home on his next BB i got dealt AQ clubs UTG and made it $6 (following grumps rules for raising). i was still down more than $125 before the start of this hand. the french guy id move away from to have position on check raised me to $25, and one other guy was in. i only called preflop.
flop comes AA3 with 2 diamonds he bets $25, i min raise to $50 (wanting it to look like i had a big pair, and wondering where i stood). he calls, other guy folds. turn comes black 6. he checks, i bet all my odd chips, $107 worth. he check raises me allin, and i begin to worry about AK but of course i cant fold. what hand do u think he put me on when he did that? Koala said he knew i had an ace i dont think so.
river comes Q and i wait for him to show first as he is first to act and had raised me allin. he turned over AT, and i won with the boat, i didnt even need the Q, but i sure was happy to see it. i was afraid if i showed first, he would muck and id never know if he had ak.
this was hours after id moved to Koalas table and the other players had left. so i left the table with $208 profit after being down quite a bit. big difference. and later i won a bit at the wynn too and left when i got too tired in a cab.
which is why my roll keeps growing and is now over $15,800 instead of over $15,500. But im out of money on Bovada now and need to see about redepositing. Also i seem to have burned my tongue eating a peach pie that was too hot.
