i need to be slowing things down. and betting less. no VP. just live $1-3 NL

i don't like seeing so much of the money disappear. i had $24,500 once while in parx. yes i was betting the same way as in the taj and in shreveport, so i guess i was just running hot if my methods arent really winning in live BJ, but i will say, standing on soft 17 as opposed to hitting seems to make a big difference. and surrender helps too but not as much. here in shreveport, only samstown offers surrender and only diamond jacks stands on all 17s.

i got lots which needs done. i need to have a place to stay for a few months, long enough to get govt documents shipped to me so i can get both a passport to move out of the country or travel. or to get ID in any state. louisiana will have stricter rules next time around. im just glad the new ID expires march 2020 and not oct 2016.

i went to look for one of those monthly specials off craigslist yesterday instead of trying to renew 1 more free nite in samstown. i am ashamed i spent close to $2500 on the 100 play video poker or big split poker there in 3 nights. i think i should stay away from going in there, even if their BJ game is better than the eldorados.

the first place i went claimed they had 0 vacancies though reservations sites said they did. they still wouldnt honor it, and the lady got an attitude, made me leave. i shouldve made the reservation early instead of when she was helping out another customer. but i did get hotels.com to refund it. so i went to another monthly place with a lower price of close to $200 less on Craigslist. at both of these places and even where im now, the rooms opened to interior hallways (not exterior) but the second one looked unsafe, dark hallways, lights burnt out, she gave me keys to 3 rooms to look at when i wanted to test it first, whether net works, shower works, etc. one of the keys was to one that she didnt realize was occupied which really makes me uncomfortable she would give this key out. practically all of these hotels are filled with non white clientele (85%) or white guys who look like theyve lived in the woods on meth all their life. mechanics, or cabbies, voters who support trump. people without much of an IQ.

one of my better cab drivers lives here and recommended it but its a shithole. fridge in the room looked really filthy and too small. not near any bus stop that i could see, but i think ones up the street by the mall. at least i can see where the stop is here. and its next to impossible to get cabs here fast. this is why i wish they offered uber. i couldnt get one yesterday for over an hour. finally gave up and walked 2 miles to the other hotel i booked on hotels.com for $45. much better hotel, and it too offers a monthly special. same clientele, (this is the local population no getting by it--walk into any business including the casinos--80-90% black dealers, pitbosses, etc) but the rooms 100x nicer inside, the wifi works, (lady at the front desk 2nd place before i went here to this 3rd one) couldnt get their wifi up on my computer for me to test it. though both her and this cab driver claim it does for them. here in 3rd hotel the fridge the microwave works decent. i found out the hot water comes out strong in the shower. theres 24 hour laundry room too but of course i do the work. should do it now, desperately needs done. i think ill do the monthly when it expires this morning.

so i walked 2 miles without water, dying of thirst, in poor health, extremely dehydrated to where i couldnt hardly move, lugging 2 suitcases. along a main street. the cab finally called long after id left and was 2 blocks from the destination. wouldve ended up waiting 90 minutes. first thing i did was find a vending machine the minute i walked into the lobby. sweating with heat. wouldnt u know this vending machine didnt sell water. only other drinks but i bought something still. too thirsty not to.

one piece of good news is after dropping to $16,900, i went in the eldorado poker room with $200 at 9.30 am shortly after the first game started up. cashed out $1016 in 4-5 hours. so the $800 i won in live poker will end up covering me for all i spent yesterday and a months lodging. which means i can now ride a cab to walmart to load up the fridge. but the freezer is too tiny. fridge is not too bad though. still, i prefer the huge size fridges and freezers in the extended stay americas.

theres still 2 nicer monthly places, one much closer to the casino but those are like $1000-1300 monthly. $350 weekly or so. should go to toledo, live free and fix the teeth but im too lazy for more travel. besides the poker game here is too easy to beat.

    Tony I think you will honestly be able to extend a thank-you directed to the heavens when you finally have all of your ducks in a row to get a passport and finally be able to return to your homeland of Canada and simply play online poker all of the time and get rich because you will be away from VP and VBJ. You can pick a part of Canada that only white people live in. I can imagine you in a rustic log cabin with all modern amenities inside such as stainless steel appliances, massive hot water heater, dish washer, clothes washer/dryer, maybe a sauna and/or hottub, nice bed, etc. You can have a nice fire going in the massive rough stone fireplace with your trusty cat eyeballing the dancing flames. A freezer full of chicken fingers, mashed taters, mac&cheese. A place far, far away from all of the injustices that you experience in the USofA...

    1. Tony, those people in that hotel are thinking the same thing about YOU. U see, you are non white and you look like you are a drug addict who lives in the woods. Your addiction is gambling which is no worse than a drug addict. Is that judgemental enough for ya?

    2. Lester, such a place does not exist in Canada. May be Tony can go to Russia, he is a big Putin fan after all.

    3. About 1/4 of Yukon's population is Aboriginal, fails your all White criteria.

  2. Bad luck about losing $2500 on live BJ. But it doesn't help your cause when you add Martingaling to your counting. Definitely you need to stay away from those Trump supporters. Also the ones with the low IQs. They are probably the Clinton supporters. Can't really help you with the machine play, but I am sure you have probably been told not to play machines.

    Would be interested to know where you would go if you managed to get a passport. You may not get into Canada, if you have a felony conviction. Don't know if they have casinos in Mexico or some of them Caribbean Islands. But I did hear that the ho girls are cheap, and some even kiss on the lips. Tony if you could build your roll back up to $30,000 and moved to one of them Islands with a poker room, you could probably pay a decent woman to look after you in your poor health and old age, and just play low limit poker to get buy on. Just a thought man. You need to plan for the future. But you need to start now working on getting all your papers together. Don't leave it for the next 3 years before you think about it again.

    1. Wasn't he born in Canada?
      If so he can go back regardless of his felonies.

    2. Thailand FTW where Tony could get cheap ladies to love him for long time (no matter how ugly and smelly), but he'd have to go with online gambling

    3. If Tony gets a passport, wouldn't it say he was born in Canada? He should have no problems entering Canada.

  4. Tony before I bash you let me help you out.

    You can have a passport shipped to a mailbox place like a UPS store. I've done it before. You do not need to have it shipped to a permanent residential adress.

    Now stop with the blackjack already. From a mathematical standpoint you don't have an edge at all. And even if you had one in a vacuum you don't have the discipline to be a successful card counter.Stick to poker. You're not an AP, you're not a card counter.

    1. when i tried to rent a box at the mailbox express place in the flamingo in vegas over 10 yrs ago, the law was to get one, u first had to have proof of ur home address. (the mailman in lyons ks had to check yes on the fact i live there) luckily, he did. never really understood how verification now works or if the laws changed. they didnt give u the box til they did the verification check, u had to wait a few days.

      i doubt people know this unless theyve actually tried to get one in the same situation

  5. and btw a mechanic of any kind is a lot smarter than you.stop knocking people with actual skills when you have none. and a good mechanic doesn't need to live in the type of dump you would live in.

    1. Hah! I just posted something like this in another reply. Funny that a homeless derelict looks down on a skilled tradesman who probably has sex on a regular basis.

    I am positive the vast majority of your readers feel you fit in perfectly with these types

    1. I dunno, cabbies and mechanics actually have marketable skills, and often bathe or shower. I definitely wouldn't lump degenerate gambler hobo with rotten oysters coming out of his scalp with those guys.

  7. Wonderful insights, Tony. My father was a mechanic. My brother is a mechanic. They had skills in those areas and were successful in their jobs. Both had wives, children, owned houses, enjoyed life. They are similar to others whose particular life skills and interests lead them to those kind of careers. I am sure you would not want to hear what honest, hard working mechanics would say about a guy like you.

    1. see what i said to koala. no offense meant. the cab driver lived in the much worse place and he too works hard and is a good guy. were i to still have his number, i couldve got him to run me to walmart middle of the night instead of waiting for the morning bus. it dont go all the way. still close to 1 mile walk. very poor bus service here. no interaction with google either. one of the few not showing up.

  8. Tony nice going inadvertantly dissing members of Lightnings family. Smooth move. This is exactly what we discussed in direct message on Twitter. You need to think before you just blurt out whatever happens to be on your mind and oh and by the way, I happen to be a Trump supporter and my IQ is 141 and I was classified as highly gifted thank you very much.

  9. Don't know if I ever told you this Tony, but I was a marine engineering mechanic in the Royal Australian Navy for 20 years. Without us mechanics the ship did not go anywhere.

    Just thought you might like to stop and think and realize that without mechanics, not one single ship in the United State Navy would ever go to sea to defend your Country.

    1. never said anything bad about mechanics, or other type of white working class poor people. lots are of good character and love their country. im offended how a few of u guys, flushdraw, lightning took it offensively. im just describing the clientele here as NOT business people except the ones booking online staying for 1 day. if they werent sorely needing business they wouldnt be doing $700 monthly specials. this is a major chain nationwide and they do offer a small convention meeting area. i was surpised i could get a room here for $700 month, i found it very nice. except the clientele looks pretty broke. i wonder if the govt pays the $700 a month for some of them?

      lots of people with high paying tech jobs look really poor when theyre not. they get over $25 hour. i just meant u know how a guy looks in a mechanic uniform full of oil stains, rough of hair as mine, unshaven, out in the boondocks? just meant they look poor, nothing about their character at all. theyre good people. unlike hillary supporters, trump supporters dont hate this country, they just try to fix it the wrong way.

    2. Oh dear, you just can't help yourself can you. When I was on exchange posting to the United States Navy in Norfolk, Virginia in the early 1980s, I came across many people of good character, black, white, Asian, Mexican, etc. Some were not the most wealthy people in the world, but every single one of them had integrity and a willingness to do their job to the best of their ability.

      Why can't you ever talk about a person without mentioning his/her color or ethnic background, or appearance? Have a look in the mirror Tony, you are not exactly God's gift to mankind.

    3. Of course, I am not surprised since Tony has a much higher IQ, u see.

  11. "i need to be slowing things down. and betting less. no VP"

    There is zero chance of this happening. U see, all you do is hang around casinos as an addicted gambler who cannot accept a losing session. When you lose at poker you will hit the VP....as sure as the sun rises the next day this will happen. You are a gambling monkey with no control.

    Your goal of accumulating money does not go well with your lack of discipline with said money. You are the problem, not the dealer, not the cards and not the people who refuse to help you for good reason.
    I hope you are enjoying your life Tony bec what you have now is about it.
