FROM Brigantine NJ--the $16,000 that disappeared

never before have i stayed in this resort. but the wifi works nice, and its not $200-500 per night like so many casino hotels in NJ this weekend. $92 plus tax and fees on priceline for under $120 total. of course, if u pay $25 twice to a cabbie going both ways, it will cost u more. so many cheaper options in ac west or ac bay area but for personal reasons 15 yrs ago that involved hookers and thieves i dont feel safe using those options. and i dont wish to use the bus at night for whitehorse pike, nor walk to atlantic from pacific at night. there is full kitchens in these rooms. i need to do laundry too--this  is also available. too lazy however and too tired. must sleep very soon.

so i was eating upstairs in the Taj with a $30 comp i earned from the BJ table. got stuck over $400, made some huge bets,  (running count got up to plus 21) and eventually quit the game up $120 thank God. that was real close. the free room i thought id have wasnt available this weekend. although i am set up to check in to the trop tomorrow for 2 nights. seems the fee went way up on the free rooms, ill owe $68.40 for my 2 free nites. this isnt working out so well.

plus im worried sick over my health. i felt extremely hot in the cab, but now in the room im cool. i dont see how ill live til im 50 without seeing medical providers or dentists. never yet got the xrays he promised to send me.

ive still got close to $14,700 after winning over $300 at MD live last night before taking the $35 tour bus into ac that runs 7.45 saturday morning out of baltimore. it picks up in 4 locations, and is 3 hour ride into ballys. i never got my $30 free for riding the bus, because u must go to total rewards to pick it up and didnt feel comfortable doing it.

lucky for me the bus was uncrowded enough for me to sit by myself. but i forgot i promised to tip the driver $10 if she made sure no one sat by me (she assigned the seats, i forgot, so i feel bad). i also made it to my tour bus unharmed after getting into a black uber drivers vehicle. plus i tipped him $3. i read lots of facebook threads jennifer gay moderates about uber drivers, and they sure regret not getting as much in tips as cabbies. now the black cabbie outside taj, i shouldve used uber then. i was in quite a hurry, but he didnt seem to know where this place is, had to find it on his phone when he got lost. nor could i make out a word of his accent. mostly was on the phone in a foreign language. even the BJ dealer got lots of tips.

in the taj, nothing u try to post on twitter goes thru. its always being saved to drafts. same with private messages.

cant believe ive won well over $1000 since leaving toledo, yet still have over $400 less than when i left. ill be glad when my $383 shows up in my bank i withdrew from Bovada. good news is i still got over $250 on there.

yeah, my first day in ac in over a year and NO POKER was played. but its due to the fact i sleep unusual hours. im sure ill be up wishing to go play close to 4am. im way way too old or ill to stay up all night. more unhealthy and more likely to cause a heart attack than either using an alarm clock or changing my sleep hours for joel or lightning. my life sure was different in my early 20s. id be very rich now had i had money then. wouldnt be banned near as many casinos either. plus id be married.

buying in for $500 again in $1-2 will be nice. i hate these low max buyins so many places have.

before i left md live, one of the dealers who wont say thank u for tips unless u dont tip, then he says it loud. (ive met 2 here). i had JQ hts, and called a raise. flop comes A9T with an open end str8 flush draw during the hi hand promo. guy bets, i only call instead of shove because i want the $500. turn comes offsuit 4. i look and notice the royal is out, so im regretting not shoving the flop. guy bets $40, i shove hoping for a fold. other guy behind me folds. he shows 2 pair face up and thinks. i cover my face terrified he will call. he folds, then i show my nice draw and the guy on my immediate left who folded to my bet started screaming how dumb i was because he had 67 of hts and if the 8 heart comes we both hit the BBJ. him for $32,000 me for $16,000. of course the dealer then peeks, and didnt show but swore to God it was the 8 of hearts. this really set the guy on edge, and he went for a walk. i didnt believe it, im sure it was because i hadnt tipped him on a pot before, he was probably hoping it would make the other guy punch me out. maybe it was but i dont believe it, the dealer did look severly flustered.

  2. This reminds me of the idiot at my 2/5 table a few years ago. He open shoved $200 UTG with JJ. The UTG+2 is a really loose player, and he agonized and agonized, then showed his neighbour who folded out of turn his hand. Everyone folds to the BB whom called with AQ. Long story short, JJ flopped quads, and the loose player folded something like Q10 suited and would have turned the straight flush. The JJ guy, so afraid to play JJ post flop it cost himself $60,000. Cost me about $4000 table share as well.

    1. The ace has nothing to do with the straight flush...

    1. Ace wasn't a heart so if the 8H came it would have qualified.

  6. yes that would be true.Tony as usual didnt give full info the way it was typed i assumed the flop was suited since no mention it wasn't....

    1. even if the ace wouldve been a heart, it wouldnt made a difference. 678910 vs 8910JQ, the ace wouldnt played. and it wouldnt been a bluff shove if the a was in hearts, id have had the made flush.

    2. The suit of the Ace is irrelevant, as Tony said.

  7. well if the ace was a heart(since he wasn't clear when he posted this post) and IF a 8 of hearts fell on the river it would not have been a bad beat as Tony was trying to say. the ace would have played for the bad beat jackpot as you use the top 5 cards to determine the bad beat hand..... YOUR post was all about the possible bad beat that didnt happen just like you saying your health is failing and making Dr. appts. then never going to them.You live in a what if or should i do this world that never makes any sense.....

    1. Dude, you are wrong. If the Ace was a heart, it doesn't change a thing. Tony would have the Queen-high straight flush and the other guy would have had the Ten-high straight flush. Since the King of Hearts was never dealt, the Ace of Hearts is not played.

      BTW, Tony, that dealer should be fired for rabbit hunting. That's a scumbag move, and nothing good could've come out of it.

      And finally, STOP SHOWING YOUR CARDS!!!!!

  8. I think that dealer was trying to piss off the other guy to get him to punch you in the face. I hope you did not tip him after he did that to you.
