As good a room as DE Park is, and as good as the promotions and freerolls they offer (and a lot of $50 and below tournies with a ton of entrants--much more entrants than the stratosphere for example)
i think its time to be planning my exit strategy out of here. theres a few things i dont like.
1. no refrig or micro in my hotel room, it would cost me a higher priced room of about $10 more a day.
2. transportation issues. i still miss walking home in reno.
3. no friends like Ray cooldave or vince living here.
4. heres the biggest issue. i cant stay off the $5 VBJ. yes its countable, but the comp rate kind of sucks, 2 huge losses and ive earned about $40 only in comps. also at poker u get far less than $1 per hour. so food is an expense. i could win at it much easier if id quit betting way too big without a good count just because im stuck. its too tempting to play it wrongly instead of rightly as is why people feel i shouldnt be playing it even though i know how to win. im way better off on a machine with a $1 min. keeps me from betting as much and on the good counts im getting a much better spread.
and i feel like at other places, like MD live, and Parx, and foxwoods, theres games i like better. maybe i dont do as well at them as $1-2 NL, but at least if i dont want to keep playing $1-2 i have other options.
even st louis offers games i like far better than here. especially foxwoods has better choices and so does mohegan sun. better transportation options too. parx is very convenient to hotels and certainly more games. now the issue is just getting there. for id either have to go directly to the train without playing first that day or renew my room not to sleep in but to just keep my things in.
gotta run now to make the bus.
