well i was to decide today where to stay for the next week (or month) and i looked at 3 places yesterday with the help of a friend with a car who owns rental properties and works as a CPA and owns his own plane. one of the places he showed me was the one hes renting for $880. its totally empty inside of furniture, etc, and is 3 bedrooms. but its in a neighborhood i wouldnt feel comfortable living in, which describes the vast majority of town.
the other 2 places were weekly rentals not owned by him, or any connection to him, with decent kitchen facilities and fridges, which i wouldve moved into today or left town, but theyre $410 weekly and $340 weekly and almost the same price times 4 for the month. a whole lot more than the $700 place i moved out of last week without the working fridge. i really dont wish to pay this much, although my friend thinks i should easily clear $6000 per month in the poker room.
the only reason i didnt have to decide today is because when checking out of my 2 free nites in the eldorado, i didnt expect sams town to give me 2 nites free so soon seeing how little ive played there compared to the eldorado. yes ive been told by customers they comp rooms more liberally than the eldorado does. but this morning i checked, and sure enough i got free tues and wed, so now im good til thurs. one of the places i looked into renting yesterday looked quite appealing.
which means 100% of someones BJ play should be in samstown, not the eldorado. better rules, (surrender and not needing to double ur bet when playing 2 spots). so i played 3-4 hours, winning $650+. never once betting over $70 each on 2 spots. in fact the one time i bet this, i didnt win the bet. pushed one and surrendered one. and i paid for a room here, i could often get it $49 nite 4 days a week booking it online with my sapphire card. no resort fees.
the eldorado buffet selection is quite large, and really nice, i especially love the taste of liver which is part of the meat selection. cost is $20.99 except im sure an awful lot of us getting the free 1 meal per day. if most of u who play everyday in vegas were offered the buffet free, most of u would do it instead of having to pay to eat somewhere. im sure a lot spend big money paying for buffets often. i never did since i eat little.
the roll is continuing to grow since the last big drop on live table BJ from over $19,700 to just below $14,000. a few big wins lately brought the hourly back to over $40 per hour, for over 311 hours for over $12,000 total in poker winnings in shreveport. so im over $17,000 now.
but for awhile yesterday i was stuck close to $500 of $1325 in buyins. one hand i got the mighty grump. 2-4 of clubs. i called $15 to see the flop. then the flop comes KQ5 with one club, and all 3 of us were deepstacked. so i called $25 on the flop. might be loose. then turn is 8 of clubs, he bets $70, i again call. were he to check, i would strongly think i should bet the turn. i asked him if he would show if i fold, (which means everytime i ask my intentions to fold are 0) and he said no, which means he is strong. for if he says yes, i can then shove allin. turns out he flopped top set. he's the buddy of the broke guy who reads the blog who asked me to go feed the fish with him. (outside, the catfish with crackers).
on the river i hit the 6 of clubs. he is first to act and bets $100, with $350 more behind or so. since i know hes strong i worry he might beat me. so instaed of shoving with my runner runner, i only call, missing lots of value. how would grump played this one?
never got around to writing the women back who wrote me on craigslist. first i didnt answer because i assumed shes a hooker and all it said was i can come hang out with u now. this was when i lost so much on blackjack the first time. so when i finally wrote, and only so the forwarding wont expire, did i learn shes married, nice pictures of her and her family on facebook, she mightve lived in the same motel as me, i dunno, the ad no longer online said i lived in the ramada. seemed they get along, so no idea why she wrote. lots of spelling errors and very short in the 2nd email. just that shes married, to be discreet, her facebook page, and to not write there. seems legit, no setup, i see multiple comments from mexican family members on facebook. white girl, good looking, her husband works construction. seems to travel often but always return to this area. i only asked for an affectionate women to hang out with willing to french kiss who isnt going to ask me for lots of money. no idea why she wrote, they dont seem to be having any issues. its puzzling me, but im not comfortable pursuing it for fear of violence.
