1 winning poker session

there's a big deaf poker convention going on here in the tropicana. i couldnt leave because i didnt wish to be charged for my free room on this weekend by not canceling 48 hours in advance. so im still here. but i do think the ONLY way to stop me from eventually playing that same machine again instead of just poker is to go somewhere they dont offer machines. Whether this would be NH rooms, FL racetracks, LA rooms, MT rooms, Wa rooms it dont matter. most of those would be too expensive to fly to, but i can get to hialeah park for $104.

won over $400 today (all from poker), which puts me back around $14,600+ but once my $451 withdrawal arrives ill have quite a bit more. im down to $20 on bovada now though. got to play really small online since im certainly not going to deposit. i left the game even though 2 fish were still in it and i had a winning image for the sole reason Grump made a good point in his blog (to lock up a win after a big loss). he is the man i most admire for his stands of some of his posts online, especially the ones regarding free speech on campus. i wouldve strictly deteriorated to under $10,000 if id lost back my whole stack in 1 pot to her. (the lady in seat 1 who played very well and had me covered for over $600). none of the fish were sitting with over $200. one was down about 4x this.

too bad im old and in ill health this means i dont often put in sessions over 4-5 hours (spend far more hours asleep per day than most). for when i was young (putting in 16 hour days in my early 20s) i wouldve jumped at the current promotion going on right now in sugarhouse in nearby philly. top 20 people in hours played per week get decent money, especially for first. problem is theres nowhere to stay nearby for under $100+ night, but i suppose u could ride the train into ac daily. i would think the promo would be severly abused by friends using each others cards, would someone in the know explain how this could be policed? otherwise id be cheated out of the top few spots so why bother?

the big loss im referring to is the previous nights $1950+ drop on the 3 card poker video machine, the one u can martingale with the smallest bet $2 with all 5 spots open close to 8am. ive been told the payback is quite horrible on it. no ante bonus, etc. was doing much better when my only play putting my roll at big risk was playing BJ for too much in the taj. (sure wish they still offered poker, its so much nicer to NOT need to leave the hotel on the jitney). it seems it gave me close to $43 in comps for this huge loss.

i wouldnt played were it not for such horrible weather this morning, snow rain and the sidewalks soaking thru my holy shoes, making my socks wet. i should get new ones. but i did dread the jitney ride back to the taj to check out by 11. then the trop for the next 2 nights. i've got free rooms up through next wed. but i was stuck $37 when i left the game when it broke close to 8am, so i went out to play it. it was a good game but i had little luck, except for when one young kid shocked me by folding JJ on a board of J643 (and 3 diamonds) he swore i had the flush because he bet $20 on the turn (after i called his flop bet) and then i check raised to $60 on the turn, with us both still over $80 behind for the river. then i showed him my 8T of spades, complete steal. no draw on the flop, it was a float to take him off it later if he checked. if i wouldve had any idea he was this strong id never bet so i was shocked when he folded face up.

he kind of went on tilt for sometime. would never fold any more looked exactly like flush draws icon with the shades

    I hope you have reservations to attend the deaf convention. You must be as deaf as a post as you never listen to any good advice from your friends. You just listen to idiots like Benny Profane and dump thousand into the machines.

    Why would you be charged for a free room if you just took it and left town early? How would they know when you left? Just sounds like another excuse to stay and do some more Martingaling on those machines.

    Too bad you are "old and in ill health," but you continue to do stupid things Tony. Maybe it is because of all the brain matter leaking out from the hole in your head. Anyone who Martingales a $2 bet and ends up losing $2000 in a session has some serious loss of brain capacity. I really think you need to go to a bootmaker and get the holes in your shoes fixed. Maybe at the same time the bootmaker can sew up the hole in your head. Would be cheaper than a doctor. Probably doesn't matter as you will probably catch pneumonia from the wet socks and die before you dare spend a cent on your own welfare.

    At the risk of sounding like a broken record, (I have said this to you many times, You need urgent medical and psychiatric treatment Tony).

  2. Yeah blame the weather for your machine play you dolt!

    Still can't take responsibiwity huh Elmer? The weather forced you to play a machine is what you are saying.

    You have 15k but holes in your shoes- you should be in a mental institution and not allowed to be in society.

    You are only 45 but you are in terrible shape and that is why you feel older - you should. Any normal 45 yr old can easily put the time in at the tables - after all you arent woking you are just sitting there playing cards.

  6. I also like General Ppp's look. It's an educated cleaned up thinner version of Joe Pesci.

  12. Pray for the minister who said the prayer at the Ted Cruz rally who was assinated the next day outside his church and is in the hospital. this is the type of minister we should admire, not those with big cathedrals like oral roberts who only care about money, but those like this guy, david wilkerson, and lester roloff, who ministered to the lowest of the low among us, the homeless, the homosexual, the drug addict, the prostitute, the alcoholic, to turn them to God and to make them change their life. true men of God seek to make a difference to make things better.

    5. if i understand correctly, MIB's facebook page shows numerous conservative political beliefs, on guns, the military, opposition to Obama, etc. would think he would be a supporter of cruz. wonder who he is supporting?

      the shooter was captured today.
