i am extremely dead tired, so ill keep this post SHORT. but i am happy to say i found out i had 2 free nites at the GSR coming to me i didnt know i had. so both tonight and tomorrows room was taken care of without me having to spend any more money on priceline.
asked Josh who reads my blog and is night shift supervisor at GSR and i think is a friend of jennifer gay, if he could find out what the cheapest rate i could get in the hotel for, i know its quite a bit more than priceline and theres no poker rate unless u are playing one of their major tourneys a few times a year. but he called and asked with my players card number and someone mentioned i had free nites coming so i went and used them. what a relief.
started off the day checking out of my room. went by the poker room too early as usual, and again ended up buying into the tourny, this time for only $25. busted out early, and didnt rebuy. went instead and lost $85 more on a vp machine and got dealt a royal with only 2 coins in, not near enough to get me even. i wouldve with 5 coins in.
went in the poker room as the announcement the game was starting up, and sat with $200 of my $310 i was in for since id woke up. ran it up to over $600 in a few hours, then it dwindled back to $483 so i moved to the $4 8 stud hi stud hilow razz mix. eventually it became 2-3 handed for many hours and i eventually left with $695 so i feel i did okay in it for once.
and now ive got to sleep. too tired to do anything else.
mom asked about my dentist and i didnt know much what to say--still think i should cancel it all and use karens dentist so i can have a much more thoughoral examination and more xrays. need to be getting things done, but at least the moneys doing better, im back to $12,200.
to make sure id rather play poker than VBJ, im making some bigger buyins and sitting in games with more money to see if i can have some big wins, then id feel like poker is more profitable if i can get a bigger hourly rate. $15 an hour is a lot for me, but my expenses are still a lot too, and its not yet making me rich. some people like pokerdogg make way over $20 an hour at $1-2 and im sure i would too if i had a much larger roll and could live in a nice apt in walking distance of tampa or maryland live
