Man was i writing a lot of blogs for a while. now i seem to be back to the old habit of letting several days go by without a post. At least i broke a short losing streak (after losing all of my poker income cell phone records) by winning over $100 in each of my $1-2 NL sessions today, and over $150 in the 2nd session.
Yes i lost all the cell phone records when i sat my phone in my pocket (i dont know how to lock it and i asked someone and they said they didnt know since they have an android). all i know is it locks on its own after a short time period expires that i can set for 1 min or 5 min or somewhere in between. so when i reach into my pocket for anything or pull it out, it starts touching buttons. monday nite when i got home from the atlantis, i found it lit up with tons of shaking x's and i shut it off but not before it had deleted tons of applications in the top 2 rows. (the only one that was really important with lots of stored data was poker income). i didnt mind losing the records on bejeweled of high scores, redownloading poker atlas, bravo, etc.
i thought the backup the apple store did for me on my laptop a while back would have most of the records, but i could find no record of it. my laptop claims i dont have icloud downloaded, so it mightve been something i erased. so i had to just log all of the results best i remembered as one huge 1669 hour session for 26,236 profit. (all i remembered was i was at $15.72 per hour and about that many hours give or take a few). so i used the calculator to get the figure of $26,236, which seems about right since i do remember it being just over $26k.
But when u enter it all as 1 big session. it now gives me inaccurate results on minor things. such as claiming ive lost more sessions than i won, (with several small losses since) and claiming my average winning session is over $3000, etc. But the major details are all thats really important and the 7+ BB per hour. also im down to only $15.32 an hour now. Pokerdogg told me this is the proper way to do it.
And then i also went and paid the landlord today. i wont say in here how long a time period i paid him for.
Its amazing how much money the people have in the $20-40 fixed limit game, and how many days ahead of time they sign the interest lists to play it, which i dont think should be showing up on bravo because it gives a first timer an improper impression that it might be a current interest list.
it wasnt the nicest thing to say on twitter, (something about it being a dumb game for mentally retarded people and if i had to play it id kill myself) but im so used to people using the same unkind language when they talk to me how can i not assume thats how people normally talk when im so used to hearing it all my life? Anyone reading it can simply just see im frustrated with how NL is losing popularity because its the only game thats really beatable long term. when i was broke, i tried playing limit and hated it because the game cannot be beat long term, and if $2-4 limit cannot be beat long term, surely $20-40 cant due to a much higher quality of opposition. its just a time waster for rich folks.
what id like to see gain more playing time is games like PL mix games omaha, big 0 etc. but even there my results suck compared to NL as far as in dollars won per hour. i was lucky to get $92 profit all off one big hand before the game broke at the Atlantis on monday.
also now that i have a steady address, i need to send in the letter to the Eldorado Nick wrote for me last year, and also i should give it to the Tahoe Biltmore so they can mail me offers again. also i found out my landlord has had problems with charter in the past and a strong dislike for them and says i cant hook up charter. he says to hook up att if i want, and its cheaper but their website says u must do a 1 yr commitment so i worry id need a deposit. and what then happens when u move out early?
theres a good promotion coming up. 50 people will get $100 in drawings and u can win multiple times on May 5th. last time this promotion took place i never got pulled once and there was more tables in the room than id ever seen in my life, well over 100 total players in all. and i sat there most of the day. theres also the hours promotion which im sure ill get a $180 satellite seat in and no u cant sell it so i might be forced to win it and play a $1100 main event tourny may 21 which also cannot be sold. then if i couldnt sell my action, id have to just accept 100% of whatever id win on that day. but id much rather have 80% of $1100 in my pocket to add to the roll than a 10% shot of much more than that. i was surprised to learn u cannot sell ur seat.
by the way this morning i did learn the Revel was sold for 82 million and might reopen this summer.
also theres plenty of ad space for sale in this blog if anyones interested. it still getting millions of views.
