Today's profit gets me back the $300 i lost in yesterdays home game, and a little of what i lost in the casino yesterday too. still im only in the $13,100 range, not nearly as much as when i arrived in chicago. i might be back over in the casino soon, im currently at home eating and taking a small break in the $20 don sng on bovada. bought some food in aldis. i wanted to take a break and write down the win before i gave it all back.
besides having a much higher rake, i think Toledo has a lot more of the higher quality players sitting in the $1-2 instead of the $2-5 simply because the $2-5 doesnt go most of the week. meaning they have no choice but to play $1-2 instead of the stakes theyd normally prefer. so the tables are filled up with those winning regulars instead of the weaker $1-2 players u see in a place like motor city for example.
im probably best off avoiding home games. i don't want to be there if it was to get raided or robbed, and now im down for the game too. im lucky gas is as cheap as it is, but it would be too much to go all the way to detroit everyday.
i am glad ive only lost money in the VP machines once for $80, and havent touched any live BJ games. the $15 min (if u want to be paid 3-2 instead of 6-5) keeps me off them. as all live BJ professonals know $13k isnt enough to sit in the $15 min tables. i dont think im putting in nearly enough hours, but i am doing a good job of sticking to poker.
id like to make some longer distances trips with Ray--if it wasnt for the worry he might be leaking oil which he says wouldnt be worth fixing due to the cost. it's getting closer to my ID expiring in may too.
Got a chance to play with lightning a little on Bovada last night, and ive still got $270 there too. i dont like the new software and the removal of stud, but im no longer under $100 on there like i was once.
