things improving since i left foxwoods

Well im happy to report that today i got that 2nd bank debit card from Vince. so now i finally have a 2nd debit card in my name (one for each BOA account). i'm also wondering about opening a wells fargo account, but doubt i have enough documentation. and instead of paying $28 for a wireless keyboard and dealing with the inconveneince of more equipment to log around, im just using the on screen keyboard option til i find someone who can fix the laptop.

Happy to report ive been doing so well playing certain +ev machines, different types of promotions, and in some 2-100 games (and various other types of games and structures) im back to over $21,000. found out how to work the heater and the fridge in the room as far as temperature adjustment is concerned finally. i think ive ran above average to have recovered about $1500 of costs since leaving foxwoods. i've probably still got quite a long ways to go for extremely good mailers and the highest level of card. theres very few customers where im doing most of my play and i love that

since i wont be seeing a doctor at moms anytime soon, i guess i should try to make an appointment with a doctors clinic about a mile from me, i passed on the bus. and see an eye doctor and dentist too. also i need to return to where i bought the coat--they forgot to take the security tag off i didnt realize was on it til someone pointed it out at the table.

another important thing i should do is to get my proof of citizenship, but i just hate turning loose of money, especially with losing so much back in foxwoods. but it will be easier now before it gets close to may when my ID expires. i find it hard to do anything but head straight for a poker table during the days or hours the room might be open. i did put money on Bovada to play when no other option is available and to make sure my new debit card will receive any withdrawals made in the future instead of the old one.

Sinking like a balloon

$18,778 left out of $29,263 2 weeks ago. without any medical problems seen or fixed. i dont think it will drop too much lower however, unless its for a good cause like housing or doctoring. or if i need to relocate soon. Pretty much cut off all the expenses or prepaid them up. i did lose a few hundred at live table BJ today. broke close to even on VBJ. had a small win in poker, but the action here is limited as far as availability. No point in doing any traveling for awhile theres is a way to see a doctor here in an emergency.

And flush draw is talking about women on twitter. Then he says i should go to Vegas. i know he thinks if he had my bankroll he would win off it and never go broke, but i highly doubt it. most play way too high, and theyd still be in $2-5. i need to be where $1-2 (or its equivalent in spread limit) is available every day, but no $2-5.

he, and most of twitter misunderstand me. he says what women want is emotional. well thats not true, because thats the one and about the ONLY thing i can do for a woman. is give her my love and faithfulness. i sure cant fix her car or paint her house. i cant buy her nice things or pay for fancy meals. nor can i physically assualt other guys for her. i cant go out and drink with her. but being there for her emotionally, to let her tell me her problems and try to listen and understand, and knowing im always there to talk--thats one thing i could do. and unlike most guys, id not mind holding her hand while doing so.

but he is so completely wrong. that 100% is NOT what women want. what they want is a guy they can go out in public, drink, and party with, in a social setting with others--who is NOT socially inept. who can drive them in their car. who has a big black cock and knows how to use it. instead of just wanting a guy to be there for them, love and accept them as they are--they want all the things a person with aspergers just cannot do. i get along much better 1 on 1--and enjoyed going to a movie or eating with claudia--but cannot tolerate any type of group social gathering. i guess thats why i dont go to church. i dont know how to date--i just want someone to hug me kiss me and hold me close while i go to sleep without needing to have sex. what woman would want that?

will try and take a few photos that dont reveal any casino names and some hands when warrented. much shorter blogs due to much longer length of time to type using online keyboard so i can type the letter a. i dont know how to put a second keyboard next to this other keyboard. nor order online.

i removed the previous blog, embarrassed by the post, and how unprofessional i was. im supposed to be a better person and above the actions and policies of those who piss me off. it wasnt Josie or lightning who removed it but me.

Foxwoods, Poker and Moi, Very Josie

Tony asked me to write something about playing poker with him at Foxwoods and I am happy to oblige. My sister and I got to FW on Thursday afternoon and checked in to the Great Cedar. My plan was to win a quick $300+ and then play the 6pm satty for the main Event of the World Poker Finals that was going on. BTW because the WPF was going on there was lots and lots of juicy cash games. So, I played 2/5 PLO and won more than enough for my satty, which I donked out of after chipping up early. I was a pretty big stack at my table when I got re-raised with J-J. I should've folded because it was another big stack, but I had plenty of calling chips so I called. A-J-8 rainbow. BING! I raise, he reraises and I jam all in. He instacalls with AA. Also of a sudden I go from top of the world to very short stacked and gg me. But anyway this post is about Tony, not me. I was very happy to see Tony. It had been years since we last met in person. I gave him both a hug and a kiss (on the cheeck). My buddy Mike (my sister's friend actually) was playing in the stud tourney, as was Tony, but I didn't realize this at the time. Anyway, long story short Mike was buying both my sister and I dinner at David Burke Prime (an amazing and expensive steakhouse) so of course I committed to that. When Tony asked if I would have dinner with him I couldn't. He then asked if my sister would drive him to Burger King. Again no, but I did buy him dinner at the food court. Unfortunately I had to rush out because Mike was out of his tourney and it was dinner time. First table we played together was at 1/2 NL. I was winning lots of chips and I noticed Tony taking a picture of them! Hmmmm....He said the picture was for Lightning. Lightbulb, I hope you enjoyed the picture of my stacks. ;) Tony didn't play one frigging hand the entire time I was at that table. Next session was at 2/5NL. I joined the table because Mike was there and then Tony joined us. Again he played very tight, but this time actually played some hands and won them. He then introduced me to his friend "Bill Potts" or some such fake name. The kid seemed nice enough but very upset with Tony when I met him. He'd been playing live Black Jack, the count was great so he increased his bets to $800 each, which is when Tony jumped in with a $15 bet. He hadn't been playing but knew the count was great, and according to Bill, Tony's bet caused him to lose $2,400+. It's all good I think because on Sunday Tony tried a huge bluff against "Bill" during 2/5 and lost. As I said, Bill seemed nice enough, but the story just doesn't ring true to me. A young kid with 70K in cash on him, is living in his car and won't spring for a hotel room. Maybe it's true and there's just a lot more to the story that I don't know. Anyway later on I sat down to a 2/5 table and low and behold both "Bill" and Tony were at the table. One of them, if not both, jumped in when I did. Bill left shortly after. I lost a big hand....out kicked. I was holding K-Q sooted, raised and got one caller. Flop was Q-xx. We bet and called down to the river and he had A-Q. That hand put me down to a hair under $200. Then I got A-A. someone raised to $20 and there were a couple of callers, including Tony with 4-5 sooted. I re-raised to $80 pre, leaving me about $75.....everyone knowing the rest of my stack is soon to follow. Tony and another kid called. Flop was J high with 2 spades. Tony jammed and so did we all. Tony hit his spade and I was felted. I was not loving the table so I left. I played Black Jack, won about $400 and went to bed. Tony bought me a salad for dinner and mostly we talked about him visiting his mom and him not wanting to because he didn't want to get stuck there and he didn't know how long he'd have to wait to see a doctor. How he didn't feel a connection to his son, some shiat about how unfair he has it because he's not a woman. A woman can have an abortion if they don't want a kid but a guy can't. Stupid shit like that. How his mother wants him to commit to coming home on a certain day but he doesn't want to. He wants to be able to drop in whenever he wants to with no notice and have it not matter that his mom and son are waiting for him and expecting him. Also he thought his mom would want $1,000 if he went home. He told me this when he had 29K. Hindsight being 20/20 I suppose if he went home and gave her 1K he'd have 28k right now instead of 25K. Regardless, I had a blast playing poker. I wish Tony and I would've gotten to play PLO together but he wanted to play PLO8 which is not my forte. Truth be told, I am not happy with my play. I played worse than I have in years imho. I didn't lose money, but that has little to do with being satisfied with how I played. Still it was good to see him. Now for your viewing pleasure....some photos. See that tweet from TBC? It was about my sister's friend, who I like to play with because I feel I learn when he's at my table. But no, he's not in love with me. That's the kind of crap Tony does. He makes drama where there is none. He was also sending condescending tweets to @stealthmunk and then he was worried about the threats munk made in response. If you're so worried Tony, don't stir shit up! Don't talk about his play! Sheesh! And most importantly... Play smart! Very Josie

Josie's at Foxwoods in a free room with her sister til saturday

both today and yesterday i got to spend a little time eating with Josie and playing a bit of poker at the tables, mainly the $2-5 NL tables. Also Bill Potts met her too, and then after she had gone to bed i ran into 2 other readers of my blog i didnt know were here.

and of course im still winning, (new roll $29,200) and some of the money came from Josie, who i put a bad beat on (but of course im not getting out when i flop 4 to a straight flush). a guy makes it $20 preflop, i call, because at the time im in a hurry to play a hand as im still down (unless u count the $220 i made playing BJ at mohegan sun earlier). and thats a whole other blog post in itself. Josie makes it $80 which seems like a weird bet, since she only has about $45-60 more behind. 4 of us see the flop and all i have is the 45 of spades. (has my game really loosened up?)

flop comes 86 of spades and a Q offsuit. guy checks a set of 888, i shove, josie calls with AA and the other guy calls behind me which i didnt want, but lucky for me i hit the flush on the turn and no one else improved. so ive suddenly got $800+ in chips in front of me from my $372 buyin. Josie leaves the table and says she wants to change games, and eventually heads to her room and never comes back out.

since shes gone, after another 45 minutes or so i go sit in the $1-2 PLO PLO/8 mix game and play there for about 4 hours more, eventually leaving dead tired and paying quite a bit more to get him to drive me home earlier than planned and he left his chips on the $2-5 game he was in because he didnt want to quit a good table. i was down from the $241 id bought in to like $200 (after first running it up to $386) but then i scooped a nice pot and left with a profit in that game too. so im still winning at everything i play. BJ, (a roulette machine the day before) a slot machine, $2-5, $1-2, u name it.

34 hours of $2-5 logged so far, and still over $70 an hour overall. not a bad win rate for $2-5, but i expect it to decrease by about half once i hit 1000 hours.

also i heard from Vince i got a letter about a certain ban at a property ive played at before removed. so the next time im in that area, i can play at this one casino again. glad to hear this too, and vince texted me out of the blue letting me know they wrote back and lifted it. its a casino id rather not mention here. Ban took place in 2003.

mom is constantly bugging me asking me if i will really be home after oct 20 and id rather just renew my room here im doing so well but i am quite worried about my health, my teeth and my scalp although i wont be at moms long enough to take care of it all but thats why i wish i could settle down and find housing somewhere stable. this is one of the best poker rooms ive ever been in and the easiest to win at. or maybe its just im playing $2-5.

about the only thing ive been unsuccessful at poker wise was the $300 stud tourny the other day. came in 51 out of 59, never was ahead once and won only 1 decent pot.

theres one bluff ive found works remarkably well that i get away with ALL the time. i will have a hand like 8T offsuit. flop will come 678 and ill bet and get a call. turn will come 4, i will check and a good knowledgeable young kid will bet about 2 3rds pot or more. i will call, knowing im not drawing dead. river will come 8 and he still makes a bet of not all that much but something, maybe 50% of the pot. i know im beat, but i ask him, if he will show if i fold, because i tell him i really dont think he has me beat, and being HU, i turn over the 8 and ONLY the 8.

finally, i shove and say "i just dont think u can beat this hand". the kid thinks and of course, they always fold their straight, swearing that i got the full house. (and thats where i always make the donkey move--i show the bluff once they muck).

Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun

To start off this trip report, lets celebrate by saying tonight i finally hit the $27,000 mark for the first time. Theres been lots of wins and losses of over $1000 since leaving Reno, but mostly wins. Tonight i won $145 in the $2-5 game, which ive played about 23 hours of total so far, (since leaving Reno) with a winrate of $58 per hour. And yes, i know thats way too small of a sample size. to get a much larger sample size i should be doing NOTHING but playing $2-5 about 50+ hours a week. Instead i waste time in PLO high, where i play awful, and PLO8, where i just ran really bad for an $832 loss. the night before though, i bought in the $1-2 NL game with $100 (why did i buy in so low, when i normally always buyin the $300 max now?) and cashed out $1799 about 13 hours later.

yes lots of swings, and much good luck on the live BJ too, though ive played very little of it at foxwoods, and good luck on the VBJ that shuffles every hand in AC.

i still need to check out twin rivers, ive heard they give out really good mailers if u play a ton first, and there the VBJ doesnt shuffle every hand. also the poker room will be open this year i think soon.

my rent is costing me over $400 a week, and a lot more when i was paying up to $171 a night at some nice casinos. but i had no room saturday night because everything was sold out because i didnt book ahead of time, and i wasnt going to pay $599 either. this is a nice room, looks more like an apt than a hotel, and a nice kitchen.

but they can only guarantee a stay of 2 weeks and i need to get to KS soon before mom gets unhappy, and ive still not got to check out NH either.

Also Bill Potts (not his real name) has been very friendly and helpful in driving me around but not for free. ive seen hes trustworthy because he showed me the $70k he had in his bankroll when moving it from his car to a safe deposit box.

and yes i do really need to see a dr, gots lots to ask him and ill need a dentist again too to look at some teeth. but first i guess ill see Josie before i might be checking out sunday and going to KS instead of renewing it for that 2nd week they reserved me for.

theres a WIDE selection of tables here at Foxwoods and some of the games are quite loose, including the $2-5 which surprises me. lots of tournies upstairs too which of course, i pay no attention to.

Aimlessness and unstability. Well, its better than poverty and homelessness. (hollywood Penn national trip report included)

Today, i left my room determined to go west, since im to be seeing mom on oct 20. thought id go thru Pittsburgh via amtrak, spend a day or 2, at the casino outside of town, and then head thru toledo to see Ray and a few casinos, then the casino in Indiana, and on into st louis, Kansas city, on towards hutchinson KS stop near Lyons.

I get to the station as soon as the black elderly shuttle driver from the Holiday INN Hershey PA outside of the casino in Grantsville (hollywood Penn national) drops me off for a $5 tip, saving me about $55 in cab fees, or maybe about 2 3rds of that if i used uber. havent used Uber in a long time because im afraid someone will sign up for Uber as a driver specifically to target me due to my large bank acct balance, and leave me for dead somewhere. remember guys if i suddenly disappear and arent heard from in months due to being dead or in jail, lightning is supposed to log in here and approve millions of outstanding unpublished comments.

The casino there really sucks. the one dealer constantly reminds u u have to make sure ur cell phone is turned upside down anytime a new hand begins til u have folded ur hand, an annoying pain when playing games like bejeweled, and none of the other dealers will say a word because they care more about good service and not making new customers feel their business is not appreciated. just a weird rule they have that no other casinos have. sure u cant be using ur phone when in a hand, but u dont constantly have to keep turning it over and face down (for the camera).

the rake is $6+1 (maybe $6+2 i didnt look closely) and the promotions suck as u can hit quads or better and maybe not get paid a penny. i came out ahead about $75 off poker but ONLY because of hitting a straight flush for $100 that held up. most of yesterdays winnings were the $269 i won on the willy wonka slot machine when a bonus lit up filled with wild symbols and a guys picture, and i immediately cashed out $369 of my $100 coin in.

i seen a $15 shuffle every hand VBJ machine paying 3-2, no idea if it gave comps because i never tested it out by playing. didnt look worth playing and it was never empty and they only had 1 machine.

also seen some live BJ shoe games, didnt pay any attention as far as non shoe game. but i never sat and played those either to check it out.

its not really much of a casino and is about a 1 1/2 mile walk from the hotel. i walked it going over there during the day. shuttle runs (operated by the Holiday inn) from 7am til 10pm and erraticly. they dont have a regular driver. just whoever they can find who isnt busy and available to drive it. could be any of their employees.

so when i got to the station, i just didnt feel like sitting around for 3 hours doing NOTHING waiting for the 2.36pm train to pittsburgh. so instead i looked into info on the NYC and philly trains going out the other way. all i really wanted to do was to go to any casino other than that one, and play $2-5 instead of $1-2 for a change which im still hardly ever playing.

so while on the train into Philly, i looked up a lot of room rates on Priceline in the Newark DE, and other cities. then i looked up multiple airfares to multiple cities on the west coast i wanted to go, (or within a couple hundred miles of where i wanted to go) and also to many cities in the midwest. thinking maybe id go to the airport in philly tonight. man some of the rates are quite a bit higher if the ticket isnt bought ahead of time.

but first i was going to see which amtrak was leaving soon out of philly, (within less than an hour) and i wish a lot more locations had private sleeper cars . those dont exist in the northeast corridor. i ended up going to a location where ill be aboard for quite a long period of time, at a high cost, and i think i probably will feel a lot more secure if i quit advertising where ill be, cause then at least ill feel safe hailing an uber upon arrival. (regardless of whether the driver is white or black, as long as he dont read my blog ill not stress).

also for something to do enroute using the wifi, i paid about $250 for a bitcoin and been using it on a certain gambling site online to play cards. and also i have the additional $20 Bovada gave me
yesterday since it claimed they found collusion by other people in one of my tournies. Lets pray that dont get my debit card canceled again, since i bought it instantly via debit card again.

should still go see mom though and multiple doctors i worry that final wisdom tooth with the jagged edge should come out and id like to use the same dentist that put me to sleep first. also they still badly need cleaned but that one tooth been bugging me again.

with all those expenses, i estimate my new roll to be $25,600+ and thats after paying for hotels for the first 2 nights when i arrive. still thats enough to live off of, and play $2-5 instead of $1-2 or to play live table Blackjack for a living. it might not be enough to get good credit or find an apartment to rent however. i'm always good at paying bills when im not close to going broke, so theres no reason my credit should be bad except for it having not been 7 years yet when bad information goes off.

A good example of why some people shouldnt play $2-5 (or other casino games) even though they have the bankroll to afford it and beat those games over the long run. THEY CANNOT HANDLE THE STAKES EMOTIONALLY, AND ITS TOO HARD ON THEM MENTALLY.

Low stakes poker is fun, relaxing, enjoyable, and provides people a much needed income who otherwise wouldnt fit into regular society. it keeps them off the govt handouts which are ruining the black and hispanic communities, and the smoke weed communities. Once u start to get stuck too much though, u cannot make good decisions anymore, cannot play well, and start to bet way too much in a desperate attempt to get unstuck. its why a stop-loss isnt neccessarily a bad thing, and at times a stop-win, (when u feel u have too much and are starting to give it back.)

Last night was a very frustrating session. i wasnt getting cards, in the $1-2 NL (hey remember im a tight player) and eventually i found one good successful opportunity to bluff about 4 hours into the session. went from being $75 down eventually to $99 ahead, but a very small part of it was on this hand. Flop comes 367 and i have 89 offsuit, and id called a $15 raise from the button. (see thats how i know my play had deteriorated to the point i could no longer play well). there were 4 of us. it was checked to me, i bet $5. why only $5? i figured a big pair would check raise, and a hand with 2 overcards would call or fold. and i wanted to find out what he had. plus a bet raise re-raise looks much stronger than a bet after multiple checks.

initial raiser, tight old man, check raises my $5 to $25. both the other 2 guys fold. i shove allin, and he mucks AA face up right on schedule, saying that hes not too dumb to fold this hand. (that was before i showed the bluff). semi bluff actually. the dealer probably shouldnt talk, but he was commenting on it being a great play and i felt good. like id achieved a work of merit.

But it got frustrating again at the table. i gave back all the profit, one very quiet young girl who was either white or mexican (more likely mexican) i found out she wasnt alone, and was with a black guy who came by to watch about 2 hours later. another girl sat down on the other end right after she left, and i thought she was with the 2 jewish guys who were there earlier, but they had left and never came back so i couldve been wrong. elijah muhammed, leader of the nation of islam was on my right, and he didnt care much for the jewish guys talking in hebrew repeatedly. one of them didnt seem to know much english. (at least the guy looked a lot like pictures of him, was speaking poorly about druggies, and had a nice suit). and the only guy he was really socializing with was one of the other black guys in seat 1.

speaking of racism, i dont feel im racist at all. i do feel like most other races are racist against me, (and whites in general) such as the cabbie who ripped off Andr0us from twitter, he probably felt it was ok to rip off a white guy. then a bunch of trolls like michelle and fakelooch from twitter claim im being unkind to immigrants, when nothing i said was unkind. almost nothing i ever say, no matter how shocking, can even begin to be as unkind as the things leftists say to me online.

and i feel its racist to assume since a guy speaks a foreign language, for the casino and others to assume hes cheating, and ban him from speaking anything other than english at the table. some of these guys dont know any english, and without their friend being able to interpret what the dealer is saying to them, they are at an unfair disadvantage. kind of like how the casinos bend the rules (and they should) to let a blind man be whispered the cards in his hand.

some may be surprised to feel that way since its assumed im anti immigrant. which really im not, otherwise id probably be supporting donald trump. only way id support him is if he won the republican nomination. to deport all 11 million illegal mexicans would be dumb expensive and unworkable and unkind. all they should do is seal off the border, allow no more in, and then deport those 1 by 1 who commit a crime, and let the others live their life in peace and eventually get citizenship once they learn english quite well, and remain free of welfare for an extended period of time.

im not anti immigrant, im anti muslim immigrant. im anti any type of immigrant who wants to come here only to collect govt aid, and to tear down the values of the constitution and replace them with sharia law. read this for example.

a horrible terrifying experience of a young woman on a train surrounded by muslim "refugees" grump should read it and try to emphasize with the young woman if he has any compassion. same with Josie, and many others. of course, as we all know, Josie quit reading these blogs (mine lightnings, etc) years ago.

im against people coming to america who dont want to assimilate, learn the language, accept our values and cultures, instead of trying to replace them with the ones back from where they are running.

But speaking of racism, i think the black guy simply didnt like that this guy was Jewish (his friends cap gave it away). and as we all know, racism directed towards the Jewish people really offends me a lot more so than racism directed towards other groups.

so i continued to play, and eventually went on tilt (id slowly been getting there about) about the time a game broke and the table filled up, with a black guy sitting next to the girl across from me in seat 8 (10 handed game) and im in seat 3. she couldve been with him, but probably wasnt, although i do remember her saying her boyfriend plays poker. he took the seat vacated by the other gentleman i bluffed. and he never seen that bluff.

so im waiting a long time for a good hand, and finally have A3 diamonds and i call a multi limp fest 3 from the button. flop comes T43 with 2 hearts and 1 diamond. its checked to the button, who bets $5. now wtf is the point of that? but hes bet $5 so often and dont seem to be a smart player trying to get value out of a set. about 3 callers, and i bet $55. hoping for all to fold, with still outs if i get called. the black guy calls so fast im sure hes on a flush draw or a set and nothing in between. everyone else folds including, like i thought he would, the initial bettor.

turn comes 5, the black guy checks, and i check behind. what should i do in your opinion?i was disappointed it wasnt a diamond and thrilled it wasnt a heart, and i wanted enough equity behind to bluff the river. just in case i was wrong about having the best hand, i wanted to make sure he folds if he ends up with nothing but a pair of fives (holding 2 hearts and backing into a pair).

river comes 9, a total blank. guy shoves about $160. now its on me, and im thinking of calling, thinking ive got a good chance of being ahead, or facing a real monster. i show ask if he will, and think forever. guy eventually reaches in his pocket, counts out $100 and sits in in front like maybe he will rebuy if he loses.

and i couldnt call. i fold, and then he shows a bluff, 7Q of hearts. and the girl beside him says that i came extremely close to calling. which is true, and then he starts claiming him putting the $100 on the table was a double reverse and was why i folded. who even knows what a double reverse means?

since they began talking, i thought maybe he was her boyfriend, but she didnt really say anything when hed first sat by her, and earlier an hour prior, a new guy sat by me for about 3 hands, then got a phone call and said he had to leave. id asked why he sat by me instead of the beautiful woman (truth is i feel squished and didnt want him to pick that seat). maybe he was gay i dunno. he wore sunglasses to the $1-2 and didnt put them on til he sat, a real tool.

he claimed the girl would be a distraction and he was there to work and make money. but he asked a lot of questions a regular would know, and was surprised a kicker played on the hand he lost. then he raises the table full of limps in the big blind, loses quite a bit on that hand, and folds by the river. i dont think he knew what he was doing really. but he left after a phone call after 3 hands and was saying on the phone he was leaving to his wife or gay fuck buddy, i dont know.

so after folding the winner, i went to get the money back playing BJ like i always do. and here lately, because of the good rules in AC seeing they use 8 deck shoes with 80% penetration as opposed to 2 deck shoes with 50% penetraiton and poor rules and 6-5 payouts, ive been doing ok at live BJ here in ac.

i know ive been overdue for a loss though. and i found an empty $10 table which surprised me. i sat, and waited for a chance to bet the $124 i needed to be unstuck from poker. first 2 shoes i couldnt get a positive count, and they took a long time to finish too. by the 3rd shoe i was ready to just shove whatever i was still down, divided among 3 spots, but they kept burning an ace or face card so before a card was dealt, the running count was always minus 1.

or else id have shoved first hand out. finally the count got to be plus 4 after a few good low cards got used up and i put up a big bet, won either that or the double size bets next hand, on 2 of 3, and lowered the bet to what i still needed and eventually got unstuck and about $100 up then took a short restroom break tipping $1, but still the only player.

hurried back since count was plus 7(id have to use the restroom pretty bad to have not waited longer) and eventually i gave it back, plus more. started rebuying and pulling out $2000 more in cash.

next shoe got another good plus count, and was told that it would be the last shoe due to the laws in ac requiring regular card changes of new decks. as the count started going up rapidly to plus 10 and plus 15 etc (running count actually) i was raising bets more speedily in the martingale than on minus counts. minus counts are $10, $11, then 2 hands of $11, (no rule making u double the bet here  on 2 spots like in NV) and thats its til it becomes plus, then i start with however much i still need to bet from where id left off. (i mentally keep track)

but this was a plus count. so i was going $15, then $25, then 2 spots of $30, 3 spots $25, etc. after getting stuck a big amount the shoe ended with me out over $1000.

another new shoe and a good plus count (this was actually the shoe i was told would be the last, not the other shoe). after a while i decided to do 3 spots of $400+ halfway thru the deck, and the pitboss one of them asked  her supervisor if they should deal, and he said shuffle. now WTF? never had that happen to me anywhere outside nv before, especially not in a shoe game. the running count was plus 16 and i wonder if he knew that? it had been a while since id bet nearly that high.

i just was shocked because i made myself appear to be martingaling. so i cashed out, since of course, with the shuffle they then went to change the cards which takes about 10-20 minutes. i wanted to take the casino managers mother, wife and kids, the pit boss mother wife and kids, and the head of securitys mother wife and kids, and shove their fucking face all right thru a plate glass window to calm my nerves. i was LIVID. and of course had every right to be due to the unfairness of how casinos get away with this and not offering a fair shot to win.

but of course, being a believer in Jesus, and knowing right from wrong, i just say that to vent and would never do anything. thats the difference between me and all the other nutcases who get violent. me, im terrified of violence would never do it and is why i was so furious i got a felony at age 20 which ruined my whole life as far as ever getting a high paying dealer job. i feel im treated so unfairly and misunderstood and taken way too serious . Koala and others blame guns for all the problems. some people blame the closing of mental hospitals and its not guns at all, even Grump knows that. its the fact others dont believe in God and after death consequences of their sinful actions. the guy in oregon who killed all those people, notice he targeted Christians before he killed them, he asked them to state their religion. remember the mass shooter who came to wash dc and went into the offices of focus on the marriage, a group moms a part of for generations opposed to gay marriage and is pro family values. i wish id have the chance to have a family i wouldnt be aliented from my son if he wouldve grown up with me and a good woman instead of with my mom.

anyway, i did leave AC, which i was planning to today anyway seeing i must see my mom on oct 20 and wanted to visit ray on the way. im on the train into philly, to either head for toledo or foxwoods a brief while first. i want to be where theres $2-5 available so i can give it a fair test but with low buyins to not tilt.

the good news is before i left town, while returning to my room in the Tropicana i had free on weekends, (next weekend is full, a good reason to leave town also) i went by their video BJ game and divided up $1336 among 5 spots to get unstuck. i won, dealer broke, and im exactly even and feel 100 times less mad now. i was overdue for a big loss of about $3000 or so, but today wasnt the day it happened after all. new roll, $25,685 which is a new high. went straight to the room to pack and leave town so i could play elsewhere new and fresh. i no longer feel ac is good for BJ after being screwed out of the right to bet.
