it's hard work to update this blog regularly, and im not going to include the sheer number of hand histories Rob always does, because thats too boring. plus i was hoping cdizzy11 would do the work for me, but i guess shes not interested. i will say im happy to still be a small amount over $16,000, as i now approach 198 logged hours. it wont mean anything til it hits 1000 hours, but pokerdogg did once tell me i would have a general idea at 200 hours. it slightly went up $1 to $41 per hour. (after 3 straight losing sessions which dropped it down from $49). the reason i do worse in good games than bad ones is people are harder to read who arent regulars.
i've got to lower my sights. 2000 hours per year, $25 per hour would be $50k per year, and as far as i know, im pretty sure ive never had a $50k plus year in my life. i dont know if ive ever had a $40k year either.
after my last $25 deposit on bovada (the 1 made since the withdrawal in NJ) im now back to $94. and holding about $30 worth of bitcoin on bitzino.com too. neither of which count in the roll, so this is extra.
i got the host to give me a free room fri and sat in the eldorado hotel, (and this morning when i didnt wish to leave the BJ table to pack my laptop, etc at 10.55am i got the floor to extend it 1 more night). so im good a few more hours til monday checkout, then ill return to the other place further out paid up thru the 7th. this saved me a few cab fees and let me play more sessions over the weekend. i'm surprised its still simple enough to find $5 BJ shoe games here during those hours which pay 3-2. u wouldnt in vegas, as most readers know. i will let u know that even though theres no wifi in the poker room, the wifi works good in the hotel rooms. no resort fees either.
Proof that i've recovered my discipline in BJ (after the bad session earlier in the month where i lost $5400) --which is how i got the weekend free when theyre like $200+ instead of $80 per night--is the fact that even when down to less than $200 of the $700 i was in the BJ game for, and on a good count too, i still never bet more than the 1% rule. which happens to be 2 hands of $80 each. in fact i only bet that much once. i got lucky to get a very good shoe after id been playing over 3 hours, in which the running count went up rapidly to between plus 10 to plus 20 in the first few hands, and stayed quite good the entire shoe. i managed to win several hands of like 2 spots of $20-45 each and this consisted of lots of hands since only 2 of us were playing then.
i did manage to finally meet cdizzy but as u can see from her inability to write up a trip report or comment, theres not much of a story. she has a guy whose deeply commited to her she brngs with her. he's more of a threat on the tables (plays more aggro) than her, yet they both won big. she succeeded in livening up the game by using her tongue. in fact the day after she was gone, one of the old men were still talking about her to the dealer as to how flirty she was.
still worry about my teeth, its been feeling odd lately. would like as many teeth as possible done at one time instead of just the one removed. lots of small cracks need repaired too. while knocked out with IV, best to do it all in one sitting. been doing research for lower priced IV sedation dentist than the $2500 one near atlantic city, or the $800 one near MD live. i havent found out the price of the one in town because they dont list it online to look it up. but here is what i found from google search of the words $300 iv sedation or $400 iv sedation.
the middle one looks like the best for fast emergency service. id got this done in toledo were it not for the 2 month wait which was in reno too. its why u need the dentist trained, so u dont need to wait for the oral surgeon.
