I've heard from Lightning this week blogging has kind of died out. Maybe thats true, all the best blogs, (Josies, Carmens, the lady married to the poker player in europe,) theyve all kind of went by the wayside. and of course, im not in any way affiliated with any of the blog get togethers not hosted by Rob.
But i still think i should update my blog more often than i have lately. ive been kind of negligent on that, and my blog is a great success story of my rise out of poverty and homelessness, when no one thought id not eventually go broke. Had it not been for Britni and Lorna back in the mid 2000s and the closure of pokerstars to those of us in the USA, id have been successful a long time ago. am sad i squandered such a great opportunity back in 2002-2005. Back then Paradise and Party were even better than pokerstars.
And ive enjoyed my time this week with both Lightning and cooldave88, (who recently quit his job to spend more time on poker.) I also hope to see agsweep tomorrow.
my times almost up where im living, rents due dec 10 (id originally thought it was dec 11) and im considering moving out since im so often out of town and just living with Vince again when im here. my lease is almost up.
after a win tonight at the wynn, plus another $300+ in the BIG o game, (even after losing over $275 to cooldave on one hand) im back to a little over $17,000. over $4000 of it is in my safe deposit box in the wynn. also i won a few hundred on VBJ at the Venetian the previous nite after leaving Planet H where lightning and i played both the $3-6 mix and the regular $1-2 NL game the day before.
About the only thing that still needs done is the fixing of the tooth. and i've got the search done to one of these 3 dentists. u see the one in vegas never returned my email. i wonder if insisting on an email reply instead of a phone is why, but its rude to tell me how they are going to contact me instead of letting me pick what i prefer.
Cooldave met Alysia while at the V tonight, and i was shocked he joined the PLO8 5 card Big 0, since hes never played that game. he also won earlier in the $1-2nl. one of the players was a real dick and not only me thought that but so did the lady and cooldave, that he was very condescending to all of us. i started off the game playing him HU because it was the only way to get the game started. also his supposed article in card player on big o i cant seem to find and doubt it exists.
also, i was quite surprised to learn that pokerstars.net started offering Big 0 on their play money site, i had no idea pokerstars added it. they sure didnt offer it a year or 2 ago. i took off the site from my computer about 2 yrs ago. it would be a GREAT way for some of u wanting to learn the game to gain experience. was anyone else aware of this?
