my rent is paid up thru next thursday (lived there exactly one month once that day comes) and yes ill be back before then. i went out to the Tahoe Biltmore where i like to stay on the amtrak Wednesday morning without ever mentioning it on the blog or twitter just to get away. nice little getaway, great privacy away from people, and much better internet reception here than at home. id stay here long term if poker was more available and it wasnt so difficult to get the rooms.
i get $30 slot play twice a month and 2 free nites a month with a $20 food credit. plus i can do the $50 atm promotion once a month across the street. so when i arrived here for $13 on the amtrak about noon wednesday, those were the first 2 things i did which put me about $100 ahead. then i won over another $200+ on the VBJ during the course of wed and thurs, and now its friday morning. the final $300+ was won in the Hyatt Grand Lodge poker room between 11pm and 3am this morning when i bought in $200 and cashed out $523 it was pretty shorthanded the final hour or 2, and i got lucky on a flop of 10 5 6 and 2 spades when i had 55 and he had JJ. lots of aggressive play on that game and lots of big stacks. lots of straddling too. i was afraid id lose it back, the one guy was really good whose a regular.
For right now, im hanging out in my room playing DON sngs with my $117 on Bovada off those $85+ in deposits made yesterday. at least i should finally have enough on there to work with. Glad my tooth hasnt been hurting me since that one night last week. sure isnt getting any better though either still needs done. the dentist locally here charges more but at least they offer sedation.
i might go home today (friday afternoon) or i might use some of my $91 in comp dollars to stay slightly longer. i havent had to use any comps yet since i had 2 free nights to start off and had $77 in comps when i first came. its an extremely slow process earning comp nites here since it takes $15,000 or so in play. of course, it wouldnt be slow if i had like a $40k roll, my bets would be much higher. then it would be easy.
Staying out here keeps me off the VP machines where i lose a bit less than $1 on every $100 i bet, and puts me on a much better paying VBJ game. my only fear is a big loss coming soon. Reason being, ill bet a lot more on these machines than the VP ones. and this suitcase is a horrible pain to drag with me with the huge hole in it. also, im now out of food both here and back in my apt in reno.
