thinking............

some people have commented lately that ive not been saying much lately on twitter. well this is true, and theres 2 reasons for that. one, sprint dont work here, only verizon, and until its the next billing cycle, i have zero data unless i want to pay big money for roaming fees. 2nd reason, the state gaming comission has a weird law banning any use of a cell phone on the tables. no other state has this rule. so im never on my phone. snevman and seattle irish will be proud. seems my data only lasted me 8 days. Vince called for me, and theres no cell towers up here. texts and calls DO work however, but no mail, no internet, etc.

and at least most of the time, the net does work in my room from my laptop. though at times that goes out in the middle of tourneys. So even though the best place to play poker most of the time is in my room on Bovada, thats not foolproof.

though ive been quite cranky most of the time ive been here (as the roll continues to drop, now being $16,107 of the $19,783 i arrived with) still not everybody hates me yet. Just today, the main lady running the slot club players card desk offered me 2 nice tshirts advertising their casino. i just hope the VBJ machine is honest. ive never had this much bad luck on the ones that do not shuffle every hand. my bankroll is no longer near high enough to handle a max bet of $100 per 5 spots. Yet when im stuck, its so hard to not bet the total amount to get unstuck (divided among 3-5 spots) to get even if the deck is loaded up with good cards. i could check with Benny and Pokerdogg, but i think the most i should bet is 1 200th of the roll, which is only about $80 total?

of course most of the bets arent even $10+ or $20+

and not being familiar with UTHE machines, im probably not playing it correctly, but i started off so well. thats how i got to over $21,000 once. but now i seem to be losing on it almost as regularly as the VBJ.

Still think im far better off in reno, toledo, biloxi, vegas, albuquerque or phoenix, my room does expire sunday too. looking at allegiant, its the best way out. very few planes fly from here. i really hate the hassle of more traveling though. would do anything to avoid the cost or hassle. Being theres no grocery or laundrymat in town, i walked 4 blocks to the family dollar store for cheap food for the room. and as much as ive dropped, any shot of going home or seeing a doctor or dentist totally went off the table. to be honest, since im going down instead of up, i feel far more broke now with $16k than when i had $6k and kept going up. is anyone able to understand that?

wonder if i could still rent the apt i had in 2003 in Butte for $230 a month i never returned to and lost all my things? of course it would cost much more now, and hed want a large deposit im sure. i really and truly want long term cheap rent somewhere theres poker.

doubt ill ever fix the keyboard but i am getting more used to using the on screen keyboard just to type the letter a. got my new Wells fargo debit card now too.

Make sure to check out Lori's blog which i added to the list of bloggers. she is from Biloxi and is well known in the industry.

  1. Illinois casinos are very strict about enforcing the no phones at the table law. You have to step away from the table to use the phone. Makes it difficult to do much more than send out occasional texts or tweets.

    Your failure to get medical/dental attention means you are having a close race between croaking and have a medical problem that will cost you all or most of the sockroll. Ladies and gentlemen - place your bets!

  2. You've nearly halved your maximum bankroll! Holy cow! That is some extreme variance, but how can you not see that dem good machines are the root cause of your issues? If you had stuck to poker only, you would not have experienced this downswing nearly has violently. At the end of the day, only you're to blame because you made the poor choices to gamble on dem good machines.

    I hope you thanked the slot club lady for doing a kind deed and giving you some clothes! Since you don't have laundry by you, undoubtedly you could use some clean, fresh shirts.

  3. Going to Butte sounds like a good plan Tony. Of all your options I like that one the best. I am certain you can work out a deal with your old landlord. Thanksgiving in Montana is a beautiful time of year. The locals are all so festive and welcoming to visitors such as yourself. I think the meth problem in Butte is a myth btw! Spend one year in Butte without any "vacations" and your standard of living will increase as will your roll!

  7. If the casino's have free wi-fi why were you using your data plan? Turn off the data and use only the wifi.

    2. Apparently I do because there is a laundrymat 6.4 miles from the downtown area. Otherwise, I guess everyone around town just smells of shit like you cause they can't do laundry?

    3. theres the laundrymat in the town of Lead 3 miles away, thats the one i used and its closer than 6 miles. no idea which one u meant. theres none in town, u have to go 3 miles out. $8 cab ride. bus dont go out that far.

  14. Tony I can't understand why you have such dislike for President Obama, when you were one of the millions who handed him the mandate to become President.

    1. how? by being poor?

      could the fact he supplied the terrorists in libya the weapons they use to attack benghazi and kill christians have anything to do with it maybe, or the same weapons now being used in paris?

      or maybe its the fact journalists on the steve salzberg show say his intelligence people dont like the fact he refuses to read briefings on groups he dont consider to be terrorists since he too is muslim. he earlier ignored the warning from Putin on the boston bomber and gave him asylum

    2. Tony, you are a weak minded idiot, how can you believe that bullshit you are regurgitating here?

      Delete
    3. Yeah, I'm no Obama fan, but please try to show even the tinest bit of intelligence. I know it is tough. It's a solid fact Obama is Christian, more Christian than Tony Bigcharles for sure. Even John McCain will confirm that for you.

      Delete
    4. No Tony, you and millions of other Americans supported him, simply by being too lazy to get off your ass and vote against him when he was running for President. You had your chance to have your say, but poker on election day was more important to you than who was going to be running the USA. You see of course, it all your fault that President Obama is still in power, or even got there in the first place. You and millions of others handed him a free ticket to the White House.
