Sorry for the long time between updates, i usually dont go back to my room til im half asleep, and the last thing i want to be doing when dead tired is to go to the work of creating a new blog entry.
I've met Herbie (and his girlfriend) (which proves the guys who claim women wont want a guy who travels all over the country gambling are full of shit and that if a woman really loves u she wont care what u like to do with ur time or where u are living). Theyve been spending a lot of time on the same VBJ machine at the Elcortez as i have. (and ive spent too much time on it, im down over $2000 on it overall this trip).
First guy i met was Joel. i was waking up late in the afternoon, and found a text from him he would be playing at the wynn about 3 more hours. so i rushed over there on the bus, and hung out with him for a while, eventually he left before i did, and i eventually left stuck $305, running my AJ into 66 on a flop of AJ6. was sitting with position on him the entire time and once beat him on a big pot where he had the K hi straight and i had the A hi straight.
the day before Vince and i had hung out at both the Cannery and the Poker Palace. actually that was 2 different days, and we also checked out the new room at the Aliente, that as u might expect has very little business on their electronic tables. They do have the ultimate texas holdem tables some claim are beatable, (dont see how).
the game at the poker palace was loose and i was lucky to recover a $200 loss and walk out with about a $200 win. A regular from the stratosphere named Scott went there with me.
then one day Cooldave walked up to me on the VBJ at the elcortez. i didnt recognize him either for a minute but then we went to the wynn and played a while. disappointed all the times i was at the wynn i never could get stealthmunk to play NL with me, or to leave the PLO tables to hang out.
then finally last night i met Koala at the nugget, and today he got a new USA phone up and running and texted me the number. i guess ill see him later today when he wakes back up.
he hung out for a while at the nugget and watched, didnt play, i won back $400, and then we went to eat. i offered to pay him for last years gas but he didnt want it.
i have noticed ive had far more chips on the poker tables than i used to (wec should be proud). and i seem to be bluffing more often than i used to also. i still have a hard time raising when out of position though. or 3 betting not so great but slightly playable for a limp hands on the button. i dont see why i should change those things.
to live in vegas longer term, i might need to move into Vinces house. rooms here sometimes are as high as $500 and up a week in the casinos, this week will be more than the previous week and i have no more sat and fri nite comps.
almost forgot to mention i met Benny Profane and his wife the first day or so i was here and staying at circus.
and im still a little bit less than $15k overall but would be slightly over there had my $168 Bovada withdrawal arrived yet. ive still got $420 on Bovada give or take what happens in the sngs im playing in my room now.
