i'm not entirely happy with where im staying. yes ive got a place to live til may 7th. yes theres good wifi, a microwave, and a fridge, but the fridge wont get cold enough and the freezer wont keep food frozen, and yes i should go discuss this with the front desk. i feel relatively safe here, regardless of the ethnicity of the fellow tenants. there enough of blue collar good hearted people mixed into the clientele. bossier city is much lower for crime than shreveport if u look.
if i wouldnt have needed to come here to get new ID, i would still be in parx with $24,500
the main thing i dont like is $30 daily cab fees. $15 twice a day. this is $900 month and is killing me. i try to get at least 1 bus a day if i can to lower this. which runs very sparingly here, and not this far out on weekends. so i would like to move come may 7. id like to move to one of the 2 places near the casino (or leave town). they cost more, but not with no more cabs needed they wouldnt. plus the one place has a washer and dryer in the apt for $840. but i doubt they would rent to me. it would be nice to live in a place with one, but im not sure how i ever could. even if i had 50k i wouldnt know how to get in. would also be nice to live in a place with an upstairs and downstairs again. i would like instructions to how someone with lots of money but no credit or history could get both of these things.
so what im saying is i dread leaving the casino because its final. not like in reno where i could walk back and forth home multiple times. i want to live 1-2 blocks from a casino anywhere in the usa. would like ideas where. by final i mean i wouldnt wish to pay a cab if im not going home for good that day. this causes me to stay at the casino longer than i really should.
i was up about $800 once in the poker room last night, and was back over $20,000. was the 2nd good night in a row since the day before i won the $750 ($705 after taxes were taken out) in deal or no deal when they called my name. plus, i won close to $1000 in the poker room the same night. this is a really good poker room, as u can see from the following phone records.
3/30 $251 profit.
3/31 $118 duration 77 hours total at $67 per hour profit, for a total of over
4/1 $642 $5200. now thats in 2 weeks. in this rate id earn $10k per
4/2 $365 month, for $120k per year. too high to be sustainable long term
4/4 $350 loss
4/5 $197 profit
but u see now why i never left shreveport ive never found a $1-3 NL game quite this good. one loss out of 12 sessions. im not sure if Pokerdogg ever runs this hot in $1-3. so u would think i would now have much more than the approximately $19k i came to town with. but instead ive got close to $6000 less with $13,449. these live BJ losses killed me, plus the close to $3000 in video poker losses all but $200 worth from the other day that i already told u guys about on twitter previously.
is the solution to spend much more time in the poker room or to leave as soon as may 7 comes? i wouldnt be too happy if i didnt continue winning in that poker room. with all ive dropped, i couldnt afford to start losing now. yet i know one must be coming, u cant run good forever. twice i won big pots of $500 or so with only 1 out in the deck and hitting it. plus ive had much more big pairs hold up than normal. no matter how high ive grown my roll, my initial buyin is usually $120, rebuys usually $200 or $300 up to 70% of the big stack maximum buyin. its very easy to get away with buying in 80-90% of the big stack though i dont do it. button straddle allowed if the whole table agrees. usually no one asks. but certain guys ask whenever they sit. $6 max so whats the point?
if this continues for the rest of the time til may 7, i will have my $19k back if i never play a single hand of video poker or BJ.i felt that if im winning $10,000 per month in $1-3 NL, surely i of all people, can afford to play a little BJ. and yet that wouldnt have hurt me like it did if i wouldve just run a little better, like i did in the northeast. for example yesterday, when i had 2 bets of $500 each out, which wouldve been enough to get me unstuck at the time, long before i got stuck big. i got dealt 17 on one hand and 33 on the other. dealer had a 3 showing. so i split, hoping for 7 or 8 to double down. got another 3. split again. got 4 and J for 17. then got 18 on the next hand. and on the final 3 was dealt a 6 so i doubled down and got 19. then the dealer turns over a 2 to go with their 3, then a 10 for 15, then an ace for 16, and then doesnt bust. i wouldve been up quite a lot if she had.
just lost the sng on bovada leaving me with only $11 left. its almost time to go get my clothes out of the dryer. as bad of shape as im getting into for money, i really wish i wouldve spent $100-300 buying tons of clothes the day the suitcase disappeared before i got in back in 1-2 days. i wouldve been eligible to get the money back and would have a lot of free nice new clothes. i never got a dime since i didnt pursue it without any receipts to show for costs incurred. plus i seem to be missing most of my silverware. i know i once had 3 spoons and a fork in my suitcase, all stainless steel. somehow im down to 1 spoon and wondering why. not many places sell them and im seldom near any type of store. just go to the casino and back. and i really need a haircut and shave again too.
