Been luckier lately than ive deserved

Well i never made it to the dentist today because i didnt want to be feeling too ill to play in todays mix game at the atlantis. (by today i mean Monday, its now mon nite tues morning). But as usual, i didnt really get anywhere in the game. didnt lose anything in it either, when i got my seat in it i was down just over $100, and when the game broke up many hours later i was also down about $100.

Once it broke, i sat in the $1-2 NL game and played til it broke. by the time it finally broke, (and the oldtime sands dealer Anthony, now working at Anchors in cali, went on severe tilt for a few hundred, but i wasnt winning it from him.) he kept straddling, which was annoying. a couple of other guys donated though, and i eventually was over $60 up for the entire day when i left.

then i went out and sat on the 100 play VP machine and won $170 there before i left and took a cab to walmart. first i stopped at the BOA atm across the street and deposited $1000 more. (was briefly over $11,000 total at the time). im not that much now after spending $60 at the walmarts, paying the cab $25, and then paying the landlord $300 more for the next 2 weeks thursday to thursday making me good up thru may 7th. Also the fact ive not paid for a dentist yet is another reason i still have so much.

bought a suitcase to replace the one with the horrible hole that also ruined some clothes, (it needs thrown away) but this suitcase is quite a bit smaller seeing i took the $29 size instead of the $59 or $69 size. its actually MUCH smaller. really i should have 2 of them. or one big one and one little one.

then i bought V8 juice as recommended by a lady out for my best interests, and bread and other miscellanous food, and 2 nice washrags instead of the cheap ones. still keep forgetting to buy ice cube trays to keep water colder. in fact i should buy a lot of things and order them online amazon or ebay or ??? but anyone have any good ideas of what exactly i should buy now that i have an address to send it to?

wouldve saved me a lot of cab fares if all my shopping was done online.

this wouldve been posted an hour earlier, but i got delayed, im in the middle of a $20 DON SNG online, and i started reading an article about the Bay of Pigs invasion, and the checkpoint charlie misstep by the opposing parties. there wouldve been lots of chances for war around then.

  1. If you get an infection like last time you will miss out on more than one day of poker. You live your life as you want, but ignoring this is a mistake. It won't get better on its own.

    1. There is a point where "live your life as you want" will no longer apply to Tony. That being after a health crisis finally catches up with him he may end up in a situation where he is no longer mobile and not able to care for himself. Worst case scenario is an old folks home for welfare types that are disabled.

    2. i worry about something like this too. thats why i want to find friends like Vince i can trust enough to live with or find a wife, someone to take care of me as i get old. in fact in the old days this was the main reason people got married, it wasnt for love.

    3. I would really like to know what the wife gets out of the deal. Why would a woman want to spend her golden years changing your Depends and making you mashed potatoes? Better save up for senior housing Tony. Currently it's about $50,000 a year to live in one.

    4. the vast majority of women dont have access to the kind of money and resources u have. tens of millions are on public assistance and other forms of help and have virtually $0 in resources for their bills such as my mom when i was growing up. all of which would be thrilled with a rich boyfriend able to help out with $1000 or so a month in exchange for living with them. all i need is to be able to trust the right person not to set me up. theres millions of these women but if u are like me and afraid to talk to anyone for fear of being setup to be robbed by the boyfriend they dont tell u about since u dont drink or smoke or use drugs like so many do, u wont meet them or know them. problem is most of them who are living in dirt poverty dont use the internet. i always made that a priority when in dirt poverty but others dont so i dont see ads from them. the only women placing the ads are those not nearly as poor and worry themselves they will be the one who gets used, so they ignore guys in my situation. (since only women with money are basically the only women hanging out on the net).

    5. also old folks apt communities arent expensive. they are under $1000 a month for the most part by law the rents less but u must be 65 or 55 to qualify to live there by law. they are certainly safer when theres no teenagers around. usually nicer places to live too and some offer shuttle services to the store, etc.

    6. "all of which would be thrilled with a rich boyfriend able to help out with $1000 or so a month in exchange for living with them."

      Wait, are you the rich boyfriend in this scenario? It seems like you're having enough trouble just trying to tread water without having a monthly $1000 gift to your hobowife.

    7. Tony, I am amazed that you don't have a girlfriend. U see, you seam to know women so well, and understand their habits. Most of us spend our whole lives trying to understand the women we love and married but u have it all figured out. I commend you sure. I am sure your women who you do not love but who needs you for your money is on her way. Can you please tell us if you expect your future wife to tell you she loves you even if she is only using you for your money.

    8. if a woman gives a GUY money and wants him to live with her, he will love her the rest of his life and do anything to keep the relationship. i couldnt understand for the life of me if roles were reversed, any woman wouldnt feel the same and love me forever. its extremely unsettling when ive helped and they havent done this

    9. I think you are wrong Tony. My first wife was extreamly wealthy. I would have never worked a day in my life if I stayed with her, but I could not do it. I left her after being married for 4 years. I left her due to a lack of love. Money does not buy love. It only buys kick ass toys and a shit ton of fun.

    10. So Tony if I give you money and tell you that you can live with me (you've seen my digs- not exactly terrible), you'll love me forever and do whatever you need to do to keep the relationship (as such) going? Okay what if I told you that you needed to get your teeth fixed, stop gambling and start working out at the Crossfit down the street and go gluten-free in your diet? Could you do it? Really????

    11. Tony couldn't do one of those things for all the money in the world....

    12. AC you need to add 20-30 hours of volunteer work for Tony such as serving meals at a soup kitchen for the homeless or something like that.

  3. Awesome that you're back over 10,000. Keep grinding away. Remember that every time you post a roll update that shows you've grown, you make all the idiots who post on RTP have a bad day.

    1. I'm surprised you think it's interesting that you've put together a string of small wins. That's what is supposed to happen when you martingale.

      Delete
    2. right, but the large inevitable loss is supposed to be slightly higher than the total of all the small wins combined. its NOT going to be when it occurs because i wont have near enough cash on my person for this to happen. id have to have several consecutive losses.

    3. I strongly disagree. Just even in recent titles, life on tilt and riding the roller coaster are way more accurate.

    Hahaha. This made me laugh. Thanks Tony. I suggest you buy what you need!

  7. My good fortune continued tonight when i ended up finally going home up over $200 for the day, to bring my roll up to just over $11,000. i put in a lot of hours, and had a lot of wild swings, and i feel i folded the winner once with KK but i couldnt risk calling an allin cause i hadnt seen enough of how he played yet. then i got lucky on a horrible preflop call of 45 suited for $66. also i upset Karen and hunted her up as she was leaving to make sure she knew i was sorry and didnt mean what i said. (she felt like i thought she was a donkey). it was one of the better games ive played in and was quite card dead for most of the time or i shouldve won a lot more. Karen did quite well near the end. up to over $95 in comps there now. and of course, ive still got my $194 on Bovada that keeps increasing slightly and my rents paid up for over 2 more weeks. if i cant afford to pay a dentist now ill never be able to its only fear holding me back.

  8. You ask if you should get off twitter because the things you read offend you and "causes me to go off on people angrily?". If twitter upsets you and affects your daily life in a negative way, yes you should get off twitter. But nothing makes you go 'off' on people, you choose to.

    Whether you are on twitter or not people will merrily go on posting whatever they post, doing whatever they choose to do, whether or not you approve. The only thing you can control is yourself and your actions. What PPP pointed out was that if you didn't choose to post your opinions than you wouldn't get people responding calling you names. Your response to this type of advice typically begins with "Other people..... why can't I". When other people post things people disagree with they get hateful responses too.

    If you can't handle responses to your tweets, don't tweet. You can't control other people you can only control you.

    If you choose to sit around and pass judgment on what other people do and say that is certainly your choice. But if you choose to let other peoples words and actions over which you have no control affect your life in a negative way the only person suffering is you.

  9. i'd also like to say before i sleep my fingers still feeling sore from when i cut it with a paper in my back pocket over 4 hours ago. didnt realize id cut it for sure since it didnt bleed but i realize that now being its now feeling more sore than then. (from typing a lot). i didnt mention it to Karen at the time since i knew she wasnt happy with me and i wanted to get a look at it in the light at home.

  11. Also, when you blew up at the player who, incorrectly, indicated that it was your turn, you were really out of line. You were so far over the top and it was no way to react to a simple mistake. That was when you 1st became a target for Kevin (the player in seat 9 who you refer to as "the black guy") and when you went off on me, he decide to put the pressure on you.

    Should I be ashamed that I was entertained by his constant needling you? Maybe.

    But I think that he was so inside your head and had you so rattled. And that was why you folded that KK

    Anyways, he thought he was being a gentleman and defending me. Although i never have felt like I need defending. But for some reason I did enjoy the show

    1. i thought he was out of line for snapping at me that it was my turn, when clearly it wasnt my turn and i was waiting to act in turn like i was supposed to. i knew i was in the right, and thats why i didnt like him trying to get me to act out of turn, and when i explained it was the other guys turn, then the guy whose turn it was blew up at me. i couldnt win no matter what i said either i had to act OUT OF TURN, or one of them would be angry at me for pointing out the mistake. its no wonder i was pissed and tried to point out that NO, it wasnt my turn.

    2. "The actions on you."
      "No, it's on him."

      This exchange has never angered anyone in the entire history of poker.

      What probably happened was

      "The action's on you"
      ""

      Delete
    3. Do you mean to say he knew it wasn't your turn but tried to make you act out of turn intentionally? If that's the case I can see why you might be a little annoyed, but I think it's more likely he was just mistaken. I'm sure if you had just nodded or pointed in the direction of the person who's turn it is, or politely said something like "I'm waiting for my turn" nobody would have been angry at you. Unfortunately you were probably just upset because you were losing or had lost a pot and decided to let your emotions control your behavior. I totally understand how short term wins and losses can affect your mood but you need to realize that you can control the things that you do and say. You also should realize that there is variance in poker and you can't win every pot, or even every day or every week. When things aren't going your way just remind yourself that you're a professional and a winner even if they got lucky that time. If you think you may have played a hand poorly go over it objectively and don't focus on the results. You call yourself a professional, so act like one!

    4. i just felt like the player was quite annoyed with me by the way he said it was my turn when it wasnt "like he thought i was holding up the game" so i snapped at him, and then the other guy got upset, because he thought it was HIM i was upset with when i wasnt.

  14. just got thru paying my verizon bill online for my home internet. and that leaves me with $11,741. For some weird reason ive been having a lot of winning sessions in a row at poker lately, including last nites 3am to 11am session. the girl i wrote about in september drunk and loaning out money to so many people was there again and she lost quite a bit. but she didnt give any strangers money this time. nor was she nearly as drunk. i won about $240
