Can anyone remind me who it was who said recently that i needed a few big wins every now and then or id just be grinding my whole life? Well today i finally for the first time had over $3300 in front of me in the $1-2 NL game at the Peppermill, and it was all off $855 worth of buyins. the original $100 buyin that i lost, (possibly due to the only seat open being a seat i dislike), then losing the $55 rebuy, and then being thoroughly on tilt and rebuying $700 (to match the biggest stack on the table). after doing that, the big stack changed seats, opening up the 3 seat for me, and i moved into it. And from there i could do no wrong. started getting an awful lot of AA and KK hands, was winning almost all of them, and within 12 hours had a stack of over $3300.
Never in my life has i won that much in the $1-2 NL, (or stayed at the table long enough to do so without leaving). But no one could do any real damage, until the very end when the best player who Karen warned me about had about $800+, no one had more than like $500-600. also one of the big stacks, both of whom were big obama supporters and vocalized it, after learning both me and the one alaska guy who knew me from Bills and his wife werent, i think they were more determined than ever to see me lose, and kept being in shock i kept winning.
both went on serious tilt, one left broke of his $600, the other guy played many more hours and eventually left with $100-200 of over $700. and the 2 very rich asian ladies also both went broke and contributed a lot. no matter what i had i couldnt lose a hand. one time i shouldve lost with KK when the ace hit the board, but i rivered the K to win about $200 off some black guy who then left.
Only the player in seat 9 wasnt losing and was the only player i worried might be reading me well.
This money will certainly help in paying for housing and dental care very soon whenever i can arrange to be seen with someone with me, and whenever the place i want tells me they have an opening. But for now--its just being added to the bankroll, so im back to the $11k plus i had where i was living in tampa before the drop in vegas and on expenses. the drop at the Tahoe biltmore of the $1500, i had most of that back when i left for reno, was back to over $9600 at least anyway from the $10,000. The last couple days at the Tahoe biltmore i was winning quite a bit, and that was once i never ever bet more than 3 spots of $45 each instead of making big bets to get even. and of course most bets were much less.
One of the dealers, forgot his name, was wanting to see the blog too and i told him where to find it.
and im out of clean laundry completely including socks. so i have to either do laundry or take it in to have it done. just used up my last shirt. and ill wake up about 2am or so. theres 24 hour laundrys around im sure, and also drop off places but they might not be 24 hours. and also the GSR allows hotel guests to use the RV park laundry, but i think its closed that time of night.
i bought a salad to eat in the room at a quick place in the GSR i walked by on the way to the room, and i think i might need to deposit something on bovada. but first i need sleep. am thrilled to have won so much today, putting me back to over $15 an hour longterm. These are days that come around only on rare occasions when there isnt any hi hands involved.
