I am very discouraged at the way the last few days have gone, just when i was doing so well and almost to the $13,000 mark. and also my holes in both sides of the mouth are getting wider, so the dentist work will need done soon. i didnt catch the bus to Vegas, instead im out the Greyhound into Truckee, for a 2-3 day vacation that will be mostly free of charge. But i do feel the players in Reno are learning too much about how to tell when i do have it when i bet, and when i do NOT have it when i bet and i fear its making it harder to win.
But of course, the vast majority of money lost this past few days wasnt at poker. it was BJ and video poker. however, the host did look at all the non-poker play on my card for this year and he claims im only out about $1500 total, and i think his figure is a bit low. i dont think they accurately counted all my BJ play.
and also i won quite a bit the previous few sessions from BJ, and only lost about $600 overall this week on VP, did have 2 small winning sessions at it, so of course the host thinks i should be bettinig a lot more if im wanting comps. but i did get him to give me wed nite and thrus nite free in the peppermill and i checked out this morning.
he told me if i earned 100 slot points a day he would make me diamond (i'm platinum) and he is of the false opinion since i make my living gambling i have way more money than i really have (otherwise whod be dumb enough to lose what i lost this week?) he was assuming $100000 a year and he said he thinks i make more than him. but i cant do that, its too much pressure on me. and i didnt want to tell him that, because he thought i needed nicer clothes, so he and i went into the expensive clothing gift shop at the peppermill and told me to pick out ANY 2 shirts. and the casino would give me them FREE. was i shocked to discover the actual purchase price (which i only discovered at the cash register) was $212 total for both shirts. ive never owned that fancy a shirt in my life.
i found it odd he cared so much how im dressed and then wanted me to see him today when i checked out, which i didnt do i just left. actually what he said was he wanted me to have that shirt on everyday when he sees me playing also..
so to get away from pressure, i left town to take a break. and although id rather be in vegas among friends at alysia changs BBQ, i cant afford the trip that far, or i might not make it back to reno if i go that far. i am just happy she told me and vince im invited. would be nice to also meet the other 2 women ive never met and the trooper to see why he hates me so much just for being who i am. no one should be hated for how they were created. God dont make any mistakes. especially since all he knows about me is what the trolls say online.
so i came PREPARED this time. and im running out of money fast, im down to $10,589. i lost $200+ in there again today at poker. by prepared i mean i brought along a microwave dish, dishsoap and lots of food for my room at the Biltmore. and i managed to make a successful withdrawal on bovada so i have $120 coming in a few days, leaving only $61 online. just wanted to feel im getting some of my money back i lost.
since when did bovada start allowing withdrawals directly back to your credit card? for thats exactly what they told me id receive. dont see how they are able to do this. and also this new tiny suitcase is 100x better but i still need a much bigger one, cause it wont hold much.
another thing really nice about the Biltmore the internet works far better there than it does at home.
