$1 million dollar lawsuit pending, thanks to my attorney PPP

false advertising makes people quite angry as RobVegaspoker can attest to. (resort fees) even more so than all the people who havent been to the eldorado shreveport in 3 months are complaining how much they hate the new $2 chips. (this part of the country its not common like it is elsewhere). im not used to the 10 max games on the eastern half of the country when 9 max is so common out west, but its this way all over the NJ and surrounding areas too. both 10 max and $2 chips are very annoying but not so much as resort fees. i heard one guy livid about this at the table today who just got back from somewhere in MS where he got charged $47 for a $19 room.

now first im happy to report in shreveport and bossier city, resort fees do not exist. my sapphire level at sams town today i found out will give me $49 rooms no resort fees many times sun-thurs. about 50% of the time at least. its a little bit cheaper than the eldorado next door. maybe they comp rooms easier. i lost here only about $1200 on BJ compared to over $3500 next door in the eldorado in the last 2 days. the wifi is better here too and both include a fridge inside the room without u needing to ask for one like u must in vegas. (still dont understand why people pick vegas to travel to for poker). even if u prefer BJ, the rules are better here. no 6-5. and it wasnt a struggle finding a host on duty who would comp it off like the previous 2 nites next door.

this morning, in sams town, i went to play a little BJ, since it has better rules than next door. surrender is allowed unlike the eldorado, and when u move to 2 spots, they do it like they do in atlantic city where u do not need to double the bet. come to think of it the Taj poker room will be open in 4 more days. the $5 tables were going unlike the $10 ones going next door, and much less crowded too. so i thought id do better. but i ran into more bad luck, and lost over $1200 more this morning. is why i said i was under $15,000 on twitter. the loss from the day before in the eldorado was bad enough. for at one point, after the big win i told u guys about of $1200 in the poker room on the previous blog entry, i was back to $19k of the $19,700 i once had it up to since i left my room monday morning in the Ramada. (where u got the shitty fridge for $700 month). way way out in east bossier in a safe neighborhood.

i wouldnt lost near so much had i stuck to the 1% rule. 2 spots of $80, or $75 now. but once i was down over $600 i went with 2 spots of $320 each (after waiting for the running count to be +7 or more unless it was very late in the shoe then +5 might be sufficient.) and of course, after a few multiple pushes, they lost.

the main reason to stick to the rule of 1% is these big bets probably look funny to the floor since im originally betting 1 spot of $5. im not sure if they think im counting, especially since i play differently in plus counts than minus, as far as surrender, insurance, 12v3 15vs10 etc, but they will see lots of normal sized $5 $6, 2 hands of $6, 2 hands of $12, bets, then suddenly a huge bet to try to get even on extra good counts. if i kept the max bet smaller, to 1% and then just started over if it lost, then it wouldnt look so much like im counting or do they not assume this? im never had them shuffle on me here like the trop did in ac once, and it was the only place in ac to do it.

i did worry when +10 late in the shoe in the eldorado when i had 2 bets of $800 to get me even out there and i took insurance knowing the true count was over +3 since it was over halfway finished with the shoe, it might look funny. for i had 2 poor hands.

this morning i got delayed getting into the promo and its really best to play the whole way thru 10-10 when the splash pots end unless u wish to eat the free buffet ive earned daily. but i was busy today. i had to check out of my room in the eldorado, and into my room here in sams town. even after this much in losses, i couldnt get 3 nights free in a room. i really couldve stayed the ramada up til the 7th checkout, but i was just tired of cabbing it there each day with the shitty fridge. so i gathered my things today in a cab and officially moved out. i made sure to tell the desk about the fridge too, but i dont think they care. how its up full blast and wont freeze or keep milk cold. but im sure all they see is a white guy complaining. every staff member there is black and ive no idea whose in charge.

a funny thing happened upon leaving the Ramada with my luggage. i got my cab in the eldorado and texted 1 of the 3 black drivers i usually use. this avoids me needing to ever phone for one. she arrived in 25 minutes and to be fair to her, i didnt get in the other one which showed up sooner, (not one i texted) for this wouldnt be right to her. so this driver knew i was going round trip to grab all the stuff and bring it to samstown. she waited outside while i packed the bags and when i got back i seem her talking to one of the tenants who i noticed had poor teeth like mine. nice looking woman otherwise. the girl wanted a ride to the horse track slots only casino not far away like 2 miles opposite way. not sure what her and the cab driver been talking about while i was getting my things out of my room and speaking to the front desk as to why i wasnt going to renew. but when i got in the cab, she asked me if i wanted her to hang out with me at the casino and that she would enjoy someone to keep her company. seemed like a meth whore though, probably lives with a blue collar guy in the ramada long term. said her fridge worked fine. white girl. i could tell she wouldve needed money too. i think the cab driver must of mentioned the $4000 loss we talked of.

i wish i had an email for her, but i doubt she gets online, and im not going to ask in front of the cabbie. she agreed with me it might be a hooker when she drove me to the boat. i just was too busy to bring a stranger to my room, and certainly too broke. im afraid when people do drugs, they will set me up and let a guy in my room. not who u can trust for a relationship. i remember when i first met claudia, and talking to josie on the phone about being afraid to sleep in her house the first time. i wanted to know if i would be safe over there.

now the subject of this blog is poor customer service and customer fraud. so i wished to find an app for live BJ tracking like i have for live poker tracking. 273 hours in and still $40 per hour. over $11k won in shreveport from poker. i not knowing the best way to google search, went to the app store and typed in Blackjack. but there came up 100s of apps to play it on ur phone, none to track it.

so then i typed in the words in google search" app blackjack tracking wins and losses. " well no apps come up dammit. just articles telling u to use an app but not mentioning or linking to one. except something for $14 i wasnt sure if it was one. so i tried to comment on the articles and then it ate my comment and wouldnt do it unless i signed up for an acct and validated my email. (why companys get no feedback, too much hassle).

then to top it off, i get the same email from priceline once more, ive gotten multiple times, 4 star hotels for as low as $15. now of course u can type in any city and the price is never this low. so much lies and BS u would think Trump is the one writing the emails. these places need sued and ive got the worlds greatest attorny at my fingertips. the one i listen to the most whose gave the best advice (he told me to track the results on my cell). which i do religiously now.

a non poker medical vacation in wasilla would be a nice break but id need to double the roll before i could afford it.

    I was waiting for Mr. Pokerdogg to join in. Welcome back my old adversary. Not all towel heads are terrorists. But I believe that the vast majority of terrorists have towel head connections.

    Never ceases to amaze me that it is OK to call a homosexual "Gay", because that word has been sanitized and is acceptable to the homosexual, lesbian and transvestite community. But if anyone dares to use another term to describe the sexual inclination of these people, which doesn't fit into their "acceptable" range of terminology, and which they deem to be offensive, then all hell breaks loose.

    Well I just happen to find the description of these people as being "Gay" or part of the "Rainbow Brigade", as being offensive to my mind. They have stolen some beautiful and completely inoffensive words and distorted their true meanings to suit themselves.

    So call me whatever you like. At my age I really don't give a fuck, call me a raging homophobe, racist or a bigot, or anything else you deem as innappropriate. I need to laugh and if it livens up this thread, then good.

    If you don't understand that "shirt lifter" "pillow biter" "turd burglar" are offensive terms and that insinuating that homosexuals are out of control raging sex addicts that "can't help themselves" when around other homosexuals, then your cancer has likely spread to your brain.

    Just thought I would flip this on to this post so we can keep it going. Maybe I should have said he would not have any discipline if he was locked up in a room full of nymphomaniacs. Nah........doesn't quite have the same ring, does it.

    So why don't you find "Gay" or "Rainbow" offensive when talking about homosexuals? I certainly find the use of those words offensive when used out of context.

    1. You're really claiming that prior to... what... 1970... you used "gay" and "rainbow" in other contexts at such a high frequency that you're now offended that it makes it difficult for you to do so? I mean, if you see a rainbow and say "Oh look, a rainbow," I think the context is clear enough that people won't immediately assume that you've somehow mis-identified atmospheric refraction as a gay pride rally.

    2. The answer is yes. In my teen years, I had a girlfriend whose name was Gay. In later life, she changed her name to Gabrielle to get away from the "Gay" stigma. I also loved Judy Garland in the Wizard of OZ singing "Somewhere over the rainbow."

    4. Koala:

      It appears that your position is:

      A) You don't want people to use the words "gay" or "rainbow" in any way that refers positively to homosexuals.

      B) You are amazed that people use terms that are recognized by members of groups as being acceptable to identify them ("gay", "rainbow"), and equally amazed that people frown on others using terms to describe that group in ways that are known to offend them ("turd burgler", "pillow biter", "towel head", "shirt lifter" - I've never heard that last term, by the way, and I'm unclear if it's referencing gay men or gay women, or if it really is widely viewed as offensive (?)).

      3) You recognize that what you are saying is offensive to others, but you "don't give a fuck".

      Is that an accurate discription of your position?

      You and I have met, and I've had multiple positive interactions with you in the past. You're clearly a bright guy who has accomplished a lot and you're tried to help Tony, which I admire.

      If the above accurately describes your position, then I'm surprised.

    5. I am sorry to hear that your friend felt the need to change her name. Imagine if we live in a world free of homophobes and bigots, then she would have no more reason to change her name than someone named Joy, Faith or Violet. The problem isn't the evolution of language which broadened the meaning of the word Gay, it is the relentless prosecution of homosexuals in society that cause problems for your friend.

      Do you know that long before the term gay woman was used to mean lesbian, it used to mean prostitute? I don't know exactly how old your friend is, but that meaning would be commonly known by her parents in their life time. Not that there is anything wrong with being a prostitute, just pointing out that word had gone through a number of changes over the ages.

      I find it hard to believe you can't see the difference between the terms "gay" and "rainbow" versus "turd burglar" and "pillow bitters". If I take SI's word that your seemed to be a smart guy, then you must be deliberately being obtuse. Why don't you ask your gay friends what they think of these terms? Show them your posts.

    6. Pretty sure Judy Garland is a gay icon. Also, I just checked with my step-sister Gaye, and she is very confused by these assertions.

      Delete
    7. I am well aware that the word Gay was used as far back as the 18 hundreds, and maybe earlier to descibe people of questionable sexual inclinations in some instances.

      I don't think I am being deliberately obtuse. What I am, is old and tired.

      Tired of all the politically correct bullshit that has progressively built up during my lifetime, so that I can no longer do what I was able to do as a young man without fear of recrimination.

      Tired of not being able to say what I used to be able to say without some politically correct person finding it offensive.

      Tired of being restricted about when and where I want to go, because some group of people are too busy killing each other, and other innocent people who just want to escape the horror.

      Tired of being subjected to interrogations, body searches, pat downs, baggage searches, X ray machines, and being treated like a criminal, simply because I want to get on a plane and fly somewhere.

      Tired of groups of people trying to force on me their religeon, lifestyle, ideology, preferences, censorship and a myriad of other things that the politically correct police decree I must abide with, when I neither want nor need any of it in my life.

      Tired of people pretending to be something they are not, so that they can play their little superiority card, and pretend they are better than me.

      Tired of being lied to, cheated on, or made to wait until some snotty nosed little twerp gets his face out of his Ipad or computer screen, or cell phone long enough for me to try and get his attention, when I know damn well he/she knows I am atanding there.

      Maybe I am very cynical, but I just don't care anymore if I offend people because of who I am, and what I say and do.

    8. I suggest you take a nap. That always worked for my grandpa when he was tired.

    9. Someone being upset at being called a homosexual = political correctness oversentitiveness.

      Someone being upset at being told they can't maintain control over their sexual urges when being in a room with other "pillow biters" and "turd burglars" = disgust at a bigot.

      Delete
    10. Taking a nap does not always work. The problem with that is that the douche bags are still there when I wake up.

      Call me a bigot, homophobe, or anything else, I don't give a toss. I have acquantances that are homosexual. Doesn't mean I approve of their lifestyle or want to participate in it. If I express my disgust at these antics in ways that don't suit you politically correct people, I don't care. You are the cause of most of the denial about what is acceptable in society, by trying to sanitize the actions of two or more men shoving their dicks up each others ass by accepting suitable terminology for these actions. If you are comfortable with that, then fine, go ahead and do it. Just don't expect me to condone or accept this as being acceptable to my standards.

    11. I get it Koala, it is all about you. Ironically, a lot of your complaints are results of other people who are all about them. If everyone can be compassionate toward others, there will not be terrorists, gay people around the world won't be subject to verbal and physical violence, even killed every day, and your friend wouldn’t have had to change her name.

      I am not going to respond point by point to your latest post. I just want to wish you happiness and be free from all delusions. I hope you will be free from suffering, and you will work to reduce suffering of others instead of creating suffering.

      Delete
    12. Koala, do you have an equally narrow definition of what being a straight male?

      Also, you know lots of straight male enjoy anal sex.

      Delete
    13. Pokerdogg, why do you use the term "Gay" instead of homosexual?

      Sure I have lots of definitions for a hetrosexual person, you just used one. But if I started using them you might consider them offensive.

      I am well aware that some hetrosexual couples engage in anal sex. But I can think of no good reason why a person would engage in that form of sexual contact, when God's greatest gift to mankind is less than one inch away.

      Delete
    14. Koala, I don't use the term gay instead of homosexuals, I use both as you can see in my first response above. However, it is much easier to type 3 letters instead of 11 though especially on a phone.

      I think you are confused between "definitions" and "terms". You seem to define gay men by the one sexual act that frankly is practiced by plenty of straight men. My question to you was, do you define straight men similarly, by just vaginal sex?

      I am sure you know lots of terms for heterosexual men, but I have never seen you use one that is derogatory in all these years, while you have used homophobic and racist terms numerous times. I think the evidence speaks for itself.

      As to your last point, what is your favorite food? Do you only eat your favourite and nothing else? Do you think everyone should eat just like you? Do you think oral sex is wrong too?

      Delete
    15. Pokerdogg, If you insist on calling hetrosexual men "Straight", would it be derogatory of me to call homosexual men "Bent"? Is it derogatory if homosexual people call hetrosexual men "Straight"? After all, they are really just two words with opposite meanings.

      I define homosexual men as being those who prefer to engage in any kind of sexual physical contact between themselves and another man, as opposed to them ever engaging in sexual acts with a female.

      No I do not think oral sex is wrong when practiced between a man and a woman. My definition of a "straight" man would be one who engages in sexual acts with female partners only.

      I would define a person who engages in sexual acts between both male and female partners as being bi-sexual.

      I don't know why you want to know what my favourite food is? Possibly some kind of trick question you are asking me? But let me just say there are some things I would not eat.

      I must admit that at times during my life I have wondered about my sexuality. For many years I could not figure out why I was attracted to the female body as opposed to being attracted to the male body. After all, muff diving and a warm pairs of womans breasts to snuggle up to and caress can be a very inviting proposition. Then one day I was reading through a magazine, and I discovered that there were women who also preferred this kind of sexual contact. At that point I realized that all the years when I thought I was a man, I was really a Lesbian. I just love women.

    16. Koala:

      I'm curious as to your take on people using the "N" word. Within most social groups, and within most public settings in the US, the use of that word would draw censure.

      Your statements here indicate that you would feel similarly towards this word, i.e., that one should feel free to use that word in public discourse (such as a msg board) and resent being called out for being offensive:

      "Tired of all the politically correct bullshit that has progressively built up during my lifetime, so that I can no longer do what I was able to do as a young man without fear of recrimination.

      Tired of not being able to say what I used to be able to say without some politically correct person finding it offensive."

      The larger point is that I simply don't see why someone would continue to use terms for groups that they know will be found offensive by the group targeted and by others. You seem to be saying you resent people negatively judging you for using terms you know offend targeted groups.

      From my perspective, you have the right to use such terms, but you would do so knowing others will judge you negatively and comment as such; to then express feeling "tired" of people judging you negatively for purposefully insulting large groups of people doesn't seem rational. You clearly have a choice between insulting others knowing you'll be rebuked, or stop insulting others. You seem to say you choose to keep insulting others. That's your decision. That decision reflects poorly on you, and I'm sure you can understand how folks would have little sympathy for how "tired" you are on being called out for making broadly insulting comments.

      How's the winter down under? I hope it's going well for you.

    18. I apologize to anyone offended by my use of the term straight for heterosexual. I now understand that some object to that term because it implies homosexuals are croaked. I can see their point even though very few has that objection and the term straight is in common use.

    4. Heavens you are obtuse. So based upon the data that you have provided you have had 2 days of -$2/hr drops, 2 day of -4$/hr drops, 1 day of -$7/hr drops and 2 days of -8$/hour drops. The rest are -1/hr. With the exception of the one -7/hr drop which occurred on a Wednesday, would you like to take a guess when all of the other $4 or more drops occurred?

      You have had one or more losing sessions every weekend you have been there.

      Stop being so damned lazy and THINK. The casino is busier on the weekend right? There are different people on the weekend than the same folks you play with during the week, right? So as yourself, does this change the game in anyway? Are the stacks bigger on the weekend? Are the games looser, more aggressive etc?

      Just trying to help you keep your earning rate up there and avoid unnecessary losses. I don't know why you bother with tracking data if you don't use it.

    5. AG-he's not being obtuse. you're trying to draw conclusions off of statistically meaningless samples. It's as silly as tony giving daily updates of his hourly over 200 hour samples.

    6. I agree with JB here, Tony has played about 40 hours in each day of the week so far. Way too early to draw any conclusions on which days are more profitable.

      Delete
    7. Of the 40 some days that Tony has been there all but one of his significant down days has been on a weekend. Over the course of the years that we have been following the story I am sure that you have gotten the sense that Tony's style of play works well in some games and not in others? He(anecdotally)seems to do better at 'local' casinos rather than 'vacation destination' type casinos. He seems win more against 'regs'. At a locals cardroom there are the folks who play everyday, during the day (when Tony has been playing) and then there are the weekend folks who bring more of a more vacation like atmosphere, looser games, bigger stacks, higher variance. I think Tony finds the higher variance games mentally challenging if he gets down. When Tony tilts it's off to BJ martingaling, VP or throwing a temper tantrum getting himself banned. I just want him to recognize that it is not the same game everyday and that the weekend brings in a different crowd and for him to be mentally prepared for it.

      My bad for trying to justify my advice on the current statistics when in fact it is based on years of following along.

    8. the $1-2 hourly drops were winning sessions for the most part, but at a smaller rate, (like maybe $20 per hour) which reduced the overall average by $1 or so. losses brought it down a bit heavier, which is how i dropped to $36. it will eventually settle at $25, which is still $50k per year if i avoid betting big on BJ

  5. If the casinos think that you are running down a shoe (counting cards)it's quite simple, they have the dealer cut the shoe in 1/2 on the next shuffle so your count now doesn't mean a thing as you're only getting 1/2 the cards which is why you usually lose on "dem good VBJ machines as the also only go 1/2 the decks". A plus 7 or plus 5 is not very good on a shoe especially if it is not too deep into it.Once in awhile I see a plus 8 on a single deck & no one jumps on it but you will jump & martingale on a weak plus 5 to 7 on a shoe!

      for fucks sake tony talks about the running count constantly but never the true count. his running count is off anyway- but if some tard wants to fire out two hands of 800 in what is likely a true count of less than 1 of course the casino is going to let them.Tony has no chance of beating bj in the long run.

      the other ones are the shufflemasters. those either shuffle every hand or 4 6th of a 6 deck shoe, which is 66% penetration

      Delete
    6. Tony,
      Your good ol' Dealers Angel machine is a four deck shoe which means you're only getting 38% penetration not 66% as you think you are, just like Jean was and still is!
      The Shuffle – A four deck game is what you will usually find offered on the Dealers Angel blackjack game and in regards to when the dealer is going to shuffle the cards, which is usually when 80 of them have been dealt out. Obviously there could be more than 80 cards used before the shuffle depending on how many players are playing the game at any one time.

      Delete
  6. Seeing how you've lost almost $5k playing blackjack, I'm sure the casinos don't care if you're "counting" cards. They probably lick their chops when they see you walking in the door.

  8. Tony:

    I'd be happy to take your case. My standard rate os $620 an hour. But since you're a friend, I'll give you a flat 20% "courtesy discount," and reduce my rate to an even $500.

    Given your philosophy regarding payment of emergency room doctors, i.e., you should not have to pay them, I'm going to require a $10,000 retainer (paid in advance, not to be drawn down). In addition, I estimate preliminary investigation and drafting of the initial complaint will take 20 hours, or $10,000. Accordingly, I can start working on this matter just as soon as payment is received in the amount of $20,000 ($10,000 for complaint; $10, 000 for retainer). Certified check preferred.

    While we'll certainly shoot for a quick settlement, it's possible Priceline may take a stand and we'll have to engage in protracted litigation. While I can prepare a detailed budget breaking down estimated costs into phases once the complaint is filed (e.g., initial motions practice, discovery, trial preparation), give my current experience litigating in Federal Court (I assume Priceline will remove this action on diversity jurisdiction), this matter may ultimately cost upwards of $1.2 million to take to trial. I'm sure that sounds like a lot, but it's actually fairly reasonable for a commercial case. Please not I'm also willing to consider alternative fee arrangements, i.e., full / partial contingency.

    Please let me know if you have questions, and look forward to discussing this matter further.

    -PPP, Esq.

    3. There are people in this world dumb enough to pay you $620 an hour to do irrelevant paperwork? No wonder lawyers have the highest suicide rate of any profession.

    4. Benny, I don't get it. If someone wants to pay me $620/hour to do irrelevant work, I would be quite happy, not suicidal.

    5. I thought dentists had the highest suicide rate of any profession. Lawyers suck like the most in the world. PPP must be below average cause Harvey Spector charges over 1500 an hour.

    7. I was surprised to learn doctors have the highest suicide rate, followed by dentists and veterinarians. Lawyers are further down the list, somewhere between real estate agents and electricans.

    9. That is a bit harsh so I propose an alternative...

      Your punishment is a box of 20 McNuggets without any sauce options and a bottle of three buck Chuck (but not a red with chicken?). Bon Apetit!!!!

    10. Lester, that would be about the most cruel thing in the world for a rich guy like PPP. Of course, he is waaaay over that $50,000 amount that would mean he should be KILLED, u see.

    11. Or... a box of 20 McNuggets in the fridge with a bottle of three buck Chuck to be eaten (cold) while reading the NEXT blog update from our Hero???

  9. "i wouldnt lost near so much had i stuck to the 1% rule. 2 spots of $80, or $75 now. but once i was down over $600 i went with 2 spots of $320 each."

    Tony - clearly, this "rule" isn't a rule for you. You seem to violate this everytime you're stuck. I think your last couple posts included stories of you violating it.

    You say you won 11k in poker in Shreveport. Is your roll now 11k higher than when you arrived in Shreveport? If not, shouldn't this be an indication as to where your leak may be?

    s.i.

  10. I've played with Tony a few times over the years, most recently in Shreveport. Regardless of what some comments suggest, Tony is a pretty damn good poker player. He is patient, aware of his table image, and will usually leave a table he finds unfavorable.

    With that said, he definitely has some problems with blackjack. Unlike his patient poker demeanor, Tony's blackjack disposition craves action and pushes too many small edges.

    Tony, when playing live blackjack - I'd suggest you never play video - remember how patient you are at the poker table. As in poker, you should be folding (betting the minimum) for hours and hours, waiting for the right hand (count) to make your profit. Good luck moving back to Reno. Hope to play with you again someday soon.

    1. he's not a damb good poker player.
      he's awful at plo, would be a marginal loser in most 2/5 games and would get slaughtered in 5/10 nl and higher.

      he's good enough to beat awful 1/2 nl players for a small win rate and nothing more.

      He also isn't aware of his image at all. Tony bc of his autism isn't capable of seeing things through the eyes of other people and understanding how they think.

      He doesn't leave unfavorable tables. If he's up money he short buys and plays like a huge nit. if he's down he buys in deep and tries to margintale to get even for the day. He has no concept of the long run. It's all about that session.

  11. Tony, can't you use your poker app to keep track of blackjack wins and loses? I felt like we have talked about this before.

  12. dreamed last night i was in a big auditorium for a rally to be held on my behalf, and i was supposed to be passing out Bibles, and Trump was going to speak in my behalf. my mom was there too, commenting that Trump needs to read it. woke up after a short sleep needing to check out no later than noon, and seen its 11.55. left immediately stored my bags at the bell desk in samstown. went next door to the Eldorado and ate my free buffet. im too old to stay awake all night til the 630am amtrak shuttle bus heads to longview to make the train into dallas for the cheap price of $24. i never knew this would be the case in my early 20s when i ruined my body doing this all the time, once did 52 hours. i doubt anyone under 30 believes people get too old to do this. its so cheap to fly from dallas to anywhere. reno, los angeles for $119, vegas, traverse city, rapid city, san francisco for only $177, etc. flying from shreveport is costly.

    so i played poker til i lost my patience and $312. 2 shoves with 77 and 55 for over $100 each, (both times with the best hand at the time, once i got JJ to fold and ak to call.) but i lost both. but i did get the money in with the best of it preflop. once i got called for $100 with k8 and he didnt hit til the end.

    eventually booked a room for $56 plus tax thru priceline, where ive stayed once before and its normally $110 plus tax. but i always get it for over 50% off with the name hidden but i know where it is because it says hint-u stayed here before. shows 3 stars too. wifi is good here six blocks from the boat. and its always a great option on saturdays. on weekdays the $49 samstown rooms the best option cause i can walk to them without worry of getting mugged. this hotel i can also walk to if its not after dark that is.

    so i got back the $312 i lost on poker at BJ. never once bet over 2 hands of $65. i then went back to poker and won $180.

    hourly is $36 hour for 291 hours is slightly down

  13. PPP is dead on - your blog is the same nonsense every single time just in a different location. If someone paid you 10k to stop posting on all social media for 60 days you could not do it - no chance. You are too needy for attention.
