i might be getting a $10,000 boost to my bankroll come 7pm saturday.

There's 2 things that cause my posts to get more views. one is posting a hand history, (which at least get more comments). another thing is being on the road, and writing up a trip report on a new casino. so in the spirit of that, id take a picture of my room here at the Tahoe Biltmore, and i actually like these rooms. Fridge, microwave, and wifi. But this isnt exactly a new casino for me. I've spent a lot of time here. Both with 1 big loss and 1 big win, and a 3rd trip i made for nothing to find the machine out of order.

I'll never have the setup i had in Jean, as far as getting my room for free. so far ive been earning my room, but its MUCH tougher here. u see, the $1200 a day u must run thru the VBJ in Jean (or the $3000 on a saturday) is about 10-15x that much here to earn the room. so its far more difficult. i wish id have the roll in Jean i have now, im sure id have done very well.

But i cant take a picture. my casino is claiming i have no space, and yet every single photo or video has been deleted off my camera. and no matter how many try to tell me online how to do it, or from reading the manual, none of the suggestions work. everyone ive showed the phone to in person cannot figure it out either. and theres only 1 sprint store in reno and it sure aint worth a special trip. not even sure theyd want to mess with it, they might say to go to an apple store. i have no proof im the customer, the bill isnt in my name.

almost nothing has been downloaded to this phone except for about 5 important applications, and very little of my space is being used by them. its all the camera.

On saturday, 13 winners will be drawn. most win $100 or less in free slot play. one will win $500 and one will win $1000, and the final drawing will be for $10,000.

ive got 98 in tickets so far, and im still out close to $300 overall. (alot better than when i was out $900). still holding over $9700. and most of the time, ive been lucky enough to find the VBJ machine pretty empty. also did the $50 atm promotion at the crystal bay across the street, surprised Benny doesnt.

And i can play poker too, just have to do it in my room on Bovada. won first in a tourny the day before, so now im at $99 on bovada. all off a deposit of $0.

once i leave here and am in reno, thats when ill be getting an address, and seeing about a dr or dentist. i just hope i leave rich and nothing goes badly wrong in the meantime. i do look forward to playing live poker again in reno, even if the first 2 sessions resulted in a total of $14 in losses. I hear the $1-2 mixed PL game goes every monday at the atlantis now. Rob might want to know about this.

also since im a short walk from a post office, i mailed mom the books she wanted to read.

  1. There's a $300 buy in PLO game at Commerce which I'm guessing is a MUCH closer drive. It's amazing how many tables they have going on a Wed night near midnight! I know Commerce is not the poker Mecca that Reno/Tahoe is but still having all these tables at one casino is pretty damned good. Rob might just want to stay in LA...

    2. Can I take this bet?

      Try removing the photos from the recently deleted album. When you delete the iPhone keeps them there for 30 days

    3. I read thru the PMs u sent me on twitter, and found the recently deleted album. i threw it in the trash deleted it, restarted my phone and of course, the phone is still showing it has 0 bytes available and the camera using up 3.5 GB. this all started when i fell asleep, and it started recording video in my pocket 2-3 months ago and ive not been able to use it since.

    4. Tony would not pay, he pry hasn't paid Peter for the "you see" prop bet... Tony will ALWAYS make an excuse.. You see, Tony is not a man of his word.

  3. Tony, on your phone go to Settings>general>usage. You can see how much storage space is available and what is taking up your space.

    1. yes i did that, thats how i knew it was the camera that was eating up all the space. none of the apps take up more than 76.1 MB. yet the camera takes up 3.5 GB, even though theres not a single video or photo anywhere on the camera it claims theyre all deleted, so why it is using up practically the entire phones storage

  4. since posting that, i took another big loss and as usual, its from betting way too much since its a good count and im down. if i kept the bets not over a certain amount, i wonder how much id be stuck right now? the only reason i hate doing that so much is u never get unstuck and have losses more often, though they are smaller losses. new roll is in the $8600s. better off just sitting in my room playing poker til saturday. Fridays room is paid for now and i could check out saturday and take a cab into reno sat nite after the drawing instead of trying to earn $45 more in comps for it. (have $10 left after fridays room). rooms cost far more if paying cash instead of comp dollars.

  6. Tony i don't know what to say!!! you tell us about all your big losses when playing your machines but you keep playing them to get even or to hit the big one and all you are doing is slowing going down hill.PLAY your poker and slowly grow your roll back up.

  7. For a little perspective, Tony ...

    On May 12, 2013, your sockroll was $765. Time to use your head before you get too close to that $765.
