i found a laundrymat

im still in atlantic city (after a brief thought of taking the plane nonstop to st louis, nonstop to fort lauderdale, or traveling to JFK to get the only nonstop into reno) i sure hate making transfers. last thing i want is for a plane to have 2 chances to crash when landing instead of 1. the only reason i feel the need for sleeper cars is i spent my early 20s in dire poverty on greyhound buses, and id like to feel like not traveling in complete comfort is FOREVER in the past. this is why i wont spend money on other things. i dont want to risk losing everything which would force me to return to this period of my life when im no longer young enough to deal with it.

still need to go to la before may. best method is new orleans via amtrak, either out of wash dc or chicago. or paying $104 nonstop to Fort lauderdale, and then later, another $159 to fly spirit into new orleans nonstop. shreveport and all the other cities there, cost alot more to get to. seems the poker promotions are far better in the lake charles portion on bravo.

well i wish i could look up this stuff online (or theyd at least advertise it) but i found a laundry close to the taj which for $18 took my clothes to wash and dry and ill pick them up tomorrow. i think thats not too bad a deal on price. certainly less expensive than dental care. i was on the phone when i tried to look and it wouldnt show reviews unless i willing to download the yelp app from the google store.

i looked multiple ways online to try to see which states in the USA offer the lowest price dental care (not counting free clinics). no luck whatsoever, all which would come up is articles about going overseas or to mexico or ads for free clinics or dental insurance plans. why cant this info be looked up? i simply thought some states might generally be lower in price. i did find an article on MEDICAL care (not dental) listing iowa city  as the lowest priced drs office visits by average.

still holding a roll of $16,800. remember i still havent received my 2nd bovada withdrawal of $451 yet, usually its quicker than this.

one of the dentists just wrote me back with the news the iv sedation will add $800 to any other work done. this was the MD one. seems the only ones who must be paying to have their listing pop up in search engines everywhere blocking out others listings, are the ones far pricier. either that or dentists cost alot more than oral surgeons do. for the oral surgeon ray found me in toledo wouldve only been $650 for everything (the iv sedation plus removing the one tooth--using the dentists xrays shipped over). the one in reno wanted $300 for their anastheologist, $80 for the medicine in the iv, and the other $700 covered the exams, and the cost of removing the 2 teeth). i did read online the average cost of iv sedation in the usa is between $300-800.

so why r all the dentists im contacting online from their ads so much more than the $800 just for the iv? unless theyre higher than oral surgeons. removing 1 tooth sure isnt going to take more time than 2. and even though i might need more than 1 tooth cleaning, it will still only take 1 hour each time on average per visit. so at most lets say 2 hours under the iv shouldnt be over $1000. removing one tooth and cleaning them surely shouldnt be more than another $500.

so why isnt $2000 plenty to cover this? and i would think my readers would be exceptionally pleased id consider spending this much. im too scared of the shot otherwise. or the discomfort.

recovered $150 on the 3 card poker twice in the last few nights. its not quite time for a new blog, but the old one had so many comments i figured its best to start fresh with a new one.

    But you'll drop $2000 in table games.

  5. people on twitter talking about me doing volunteer work. the type of volunteer work that would make people proud is to rehabilitate someone whose a drug addict and get them PERMANENTLY off drugs. reading news stories about the rampant use of meth, heroin, and weed in this country and how its destroying the lives of millions. the trooper isnt a very friendly person to me by any means, but i admire him for the way he stands up against drugs, unlike so many of the kids of his age.

    so i was in my room in the taj, starving for food, so i left the room. i had no comps here like i do in the trop (from so much machine play in the Trop) here in the Taj its mostly live BJ play. and they comp microscopic amounts in the form of comp dollars. u can however get 4x5x as much in comps simply by asking for a food comp--and using it THEN. so i sat down at a table for awhile. kept moving tables to make sure 0% of my money is in play during negative counts to avoid the house ever getting the edge. in fact, the next time im in parx, ill play my BJ there live too instead of on the machine and im sure ill do better. the best advice i was ever given was to play live BJ instead of machines that shuffle every hand. at one point during this shoe, the deck got to +35 with between 3 and 3 1/2 decks left out of 8. those better in math can decipher the true count, but the true story is this is the ONLY time in my entire life its ever climbed over +30. the final 4-5 hands it dropped to plus 12. aces and faces and BJs were coming out galore and i left the table up $598. were i not to mind really risking giving back a big win, i shouldve bet much much more.

    the stuff the dr gave me for that nasal virus and cold the other day ive still got a bit of discomfort. im unable to blow my nose or breathe in and out on command so i hope im using it right. ive never touched drugs, but it kind of feels like how i would guess sniffing glue would feel. strange feeling, this fluticasone.

    this however does mean my new roll is now over $17,300. yes i know these are the hours they say u should be playing live poker, but ive earned my money for the day--and ready to sleep. i think i do fine doing things my way. if i was to do things the way others prefer, i think id gone broke long before now. its nice to be able to diversify ur investment, not have to depend on poker alone.

    one thing im getting quite tired of is moving rooms every 1-2 days to get them free. this is why im thinking of leaving, plus my id expires soon.

  8. weed isn't destroying families, and while it would be nice to help people off of heroine and meth the chances of you doing that are less than the chances of a plane crash.

    1. The chance of him helping any addicts is less than the chance that he will actually see a dentist.

    2. Tony likes to say he would help people but how would he? What would he actually do? Talk about himself and his problems incessantly like he does now? He would never even think to ask an addict how THEY are doing or feeling? Not sure how he would "help" them. He has just as bad an addiction and needs help himself. I just couldnt imagine how lonely and depressed I would be if I gambled every single day.

    3. Tony wants to help only one type of drug addict. Druggie has to be:

      1.) Female
      2.) Hooker
      3.) Says she loves him

      Males need not apply

  9. "for the oral surgeon ray found me in toledo wouldve only been $650 for everything (the iv sedation plus removing the one tooth--using the dentists xrays shipped over)."

    It seems the smart person would go to the Dentist in Toledo if they wanted their teeth fixed to their liking

  10. So you wasted another $1600 on BJ after being down $2000 and then getting it all back, because you could not stop once you got in front.

    You do realize that the $1600 you wasted on the BJ table would have paid for your teeth to be fixed and cleaned.

    It is really good that with your high IQ, you can get your priorities right about being a gambling addict first and formost, as opposed to spending money on your health. I sure am glad that my IQ is not as high as yours, or I might do some dumb things like that as well.

    Oh well Tony, looks like you may only have a couple of months to live before you fall off your perch from illness, and the big Rapture opens its doors and sends you straight to hell for eternity. There you will meet up with Lucifer, Liberace and Leroy Brown and their friends in the poker game of punishment. Where each time you lose a hand, which will be every one you play in, You will be required to bend over and submit to them shoving lollipops up your ass, and then make you clean your teeth with them, for being so fucking stupid during your life on Earth.

    1. Being mad that he didn't stop once in front is stupid.

      Either he's playing with an edge with proper bankroll requirements, and therefore should have kept playing.

      Or he's not playing with an edge and shouldn't be playing in the first place.

    2. Don't listen to this idiot troll. Koala is just jealous of you, Tony. As long as you keep Tonying, everything will be fine.

    3. Tony is so dumb he actually thinks you are giving him great advice - I hope he follows it and goes busto!

  13. I like the "I don't know if I can give up free X" followed by lost $1600, need to leave rant. Glorifying AC has me laughing. AC can be a lot of fun and is in a bit of a minor turnaround but its a joke compared to Vegas.
