as i sit here waiting to board US airways flight 734 at Mccarran at 11am, i wanted to take this moment to go over some bad news.
new roll is down to $21,998. after paying airfare, and hotel for the next 3 nights. and the big loss i took last night. (before the loss, i was back to over $24,000). lost about $900 of it on the VBJ at the el cortez, and the rest between the wynn and the nugget.
after leaving the wynn stuck close to $300, i bought in for $878 at the nugget where i got off the bus to play more poker. there were many big stacks, and the game was shorthanded. lots of deepstacks players who werent regulars. one elderly lady i lost 2 big hands to twice, once with KK against her AA on a board of TQ2JT and if id been as aggressive as i should id lost it all. actually expected to win after she got scared and checked the river.
lost it all anyway a few hands later. flop comes 872 and i have top set., i check, another guy bets $31, she calls, and i bet $132. he calls, and so does she there are 2 clubs on the flop so i dont want callers. theres quite a bit of money in there due to raise preflop or two.
turn comes 4 of clubs. i have $400 left, and the guy has about $225 and she has over $1000. i figure it does no good to check because they sure wont check behind me if im beat and i can still suck out. so i bet $400, he folds and she thinks forever, so i doubt she has the flush. she won with 56 for striaght.
earlier she was quite loose, flop was AQ9 and she stayed all the way with 10 5 offsuit and tried to bluff the river and a guy called her. i had a8 and folded the river. he had 2 pair to win. she had nothing thats why i gave her so little respect.
ok, i gotta go, pray this dont crash
