i just got bluffed off a hand at Delaware Park. it was against a guy id played with before. i had KJ of hearts and called his $13 blind steal of my BB. we both had $700+ in our stacks. flop came 233 with 2 hearts and i called $20. turn comes Kd. i bet $20, and he bets $65 and i called his raise. but it looked to the dealer like i was trying to check raise the way i was stacking my chips and he said i cant do that. i was actually still thinking about what to do. anyway the river came 10s and i checked. he bet $200 so i figured he must have AK and surely he knew i wasnt weak. but i felt like calling. would u? i didnt want to give back another large win. turned out he was on a total bluff, all he had was 7Q i left the game with over $400 profit, but i feel i made a bad fold, i did feel like calling him, but i didnt want to give back a large win into a small win again. i needed a large win.
u see, the day before yesterday, we cracked the BBJ at de park. the mini that is, for $10,000 and my players share was $500. and i was also up over $500 in the game. but on the way to the door, while waiting for the host to come in at 8am for my $100 in free slot play, i lost over $850 on the good paying VBJ machines because i bet way too much being stuck. of course me overbetting on those machines was also the reason i won so much at the el cortez. i just had better luck at the elcortez is all. (and i left vegas because i knew it wouldnt continue).
there used to often be a host at 6am, but to keep people playing longer here lately there isnt one til 8am a bunch of times. and i was considering checking out of my room this morning and heading back to Parx or AC so i knew i wouldnt be able to get it later today if i didnt stay another day.
i even considered going to niagara falls. 9 hours + on the amtrak, so id got plenty of good sleep on the way and it was only $80, rather low for amtrak. its like $1100-1400 for a private sleeping car to places like reno or spokane all the way. of course, this wasnt for a sleeping car.
so to prevent dumb decisions, i figured i was better off not returning to de park. Even though the free $100 slot dollars promotions here are really good. plus im really sick of paying by the door in a hotel without a fridge. (those rooms cost quite a bit more). no nearby food outlets nearby this motel too except very expensive ones.
i do have $171 on Bovada though now, and a roll of still over $12,600 so im not much worse off than i left vegas with. about $500 worse off, and having spent over $4000 since coming here. still with $14+ hourly rate, for over 1200 total hours.
if i could just find someone i liked with a cheap enough price long term near a casino i like in a safe area, and convenient back and forth to get to, id like to get settled somewhere. am really getting tired of not having an address to just relax in without maids wanting in or having to renew all the time. everything is way more expensive than reno or vegas, so i cant find anything low priced enough id want to live there long term. and so many cities id like to go to arent places convenient to get to on a plane or train from wilmington. (phoenix, biloxi, pensacola, etc). and ray wont have his car available for long distances trips for at least 3 weeks.
also got 2 of my 4 books read too.
really worried about my eyes, and overall health. these reading glasses dont seem near strong enough
according to my cell, my overall profit at $1-2 and $1-3 NL since i started keeping track last april is $18000+. its possible my total winnnings are more due to VBJ wins at el cortez, or maybe theyre less due to other losses elsewhere. who knows?
