Trip report coming soon

according to Bravo, im 0.7 miles (with free shuttle service) from a poker room with 4 tables going, plus a VBJ machine with $1 min bets which doesnt shuffle every hand. yet im too tired to do anything but sleep.

won $505 today in the $1-3 NL on the boat in shreveport, then spent most of it on travel expenses and hotel expenses over the memorial day weekend. and if i stay longer this is a much cheaper and safer hotel option with fridge and microwave for less than the $340 minimum per week id paid in shreveport. much closer here to major train routes, and 2 other cities i wanted to visit, by a few hundred miles. i have no idea how the poker games are inside the casino because ive never been in. i need to sleep first. the shuttle is 24 hours.

ill be sending u a bunch of different trip reports in the next few weeks. still holding close to $13,200. (plus $375 online). this is because of small wins and no live blackjack today or yesterday since the big loss. i wont be playing any more BJ which involves large size bets, or bets over $1 in poor counts.

    How many times have you made such promises in the past?

    How many times have they held up?

    Why should anybody think this one is any different?

    Tony you could not keep that promise even if every poker dealer in whatever casino you were in was a gorgeous naked nympho and every one of them wanted your phone number.

    OOPS I did it again. Now everyone will think that not only am I racist and homophobic, but now I am sexist as well. Comment away douchebags.

    1. You are a bitter angry person who craves attention. May you find peace and compassion somehow.

    2. Promises? You sound like a scorned ex lover. Can't wait to read your maniacal response.

    3. Kevin G, I think you are correct. I did get rejected by two lesbians once. Even though I tried to convince them that I also loved women. Unfortunately their strap on was much larger than my natural appendage. So I was not required to assist them.

    4. Koala, those assholes are just trolling you.
      Ignore them and tell us more about the lesbians.

    5. Sorry Benny, There is nothing to add except that they were a lot younger than me, and both were smoking hot. We had a couple of drinks together, and a few laughs. They liked my Aussie accent. One was American the other European. Austrian or German, I don't remember.

      Pokerdogg must know the story through his ability to be a clairvoyant, which is why he has figured out why I am so bitter. I was certainly seeking some female attention that day.

    6. I am not a clairvoyant. I think most people who read what you wrote over the last few years would have the same impression of you.

  6. theres good news and bad news about the dealers angels VBJ in this casino. the bad news. it does NOT show the shuffle point. the good news, it does shuffle every 80 cards out of 4 decks. it pays 3-2 but gives no points. good news is it does give some comps though, but very little. i only earned about $3.50 in comps for running through it what i think is $5000+. (at the gold strike that wouldve been $50 in comps) ill never have that opportunity back, but i was so broke in those days i could barely earn my $12 daily room comp.

    sometime between 5-8 in the morning, (once the $4-8 limit broke) i played 2-3 hours all by myself. min is $1, max is $100 per spot but u can back bet so its really $500 per spot. too bad it wont show the shuffle but at least its not shuffling every hand.

    was real disappointed when the only game going was 4-8 limit with $1-2 blinds and no reduction in the rake, no matter how short. even worse, the dumb ass players were to blame for it. we cant reduce the rake we wont qualify for the jackpot. this excuse isnt used in NV. NV will reduce it to $1+$1. i lost my $100. should just not have played. i did recover $250+ on the VBJ

    1. Sounds like a good vbj machine. You should probably play it to get comps and mail.

  7. You know, you could just STOP playing and go to a movie or the library or a museum or something and take some responsibility for your losses

    2. no town, no city, just a casino and motels. no cabs here either. nothing but buses which only go to houston

  8. Since you are moving around again...earlier you mentioned the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I would not recommend this as an option for you. As a whole it is very sparsely populated, with no public transportation from place to place. I know where most, if not all of the casinos are in the UP and none are actually what you would call 'in town'. Given the size of the population I can't believe that some would even have a poker game running seven days a week and none would have one 24 hours.

    1. but this is the reason to go there, (i looked online, there is a city bus to it) the fact no one would be on the VBJ much--would feel like being in Jean. here the machine is usually busy in coushatta

    2. It would be very much like being in Jean. You might want to check the hours the city bus runs.

    3. I lived in the U.P. and still get there at least 2x per year. If you have any particular questions just DM on twitter.

  9. Tony:

    I see that you're now supporting Mr. Trump. Your previous posts had a lot of negative things to say about him, so I'm hoping you can share what he has said, or what has happened, that has changed your opinion. Why are you now supporting him?

  10. Why would you leave Shreveport where the low stakes games are so juicy and you constantly turn a profit in them. This new place you are at is going to have horrible poker action. Seriously Tony quit the blackjack and go back to Shreveport and grind on the poker for at least a month. Ignore all the other games they are just a mirage. Every other game in the casino besides poker just keeps you broke. If you are truly a poker pro you should have the will power to quit the blackjack. Pit games are for the fish.

    1. i just figured this would be a brief stop enroute to lake charles and biloxi. some of the policies of this pokerroom bug me, but at least no $2 chips.

  11. Jesus, tony! I saw you tweeted you just had another big BJ loss and are down to 11k now? Man, you are bleeding money to pit games like crazy. HUGE leak for you.

    Get help.

  12. in a way i followed my readers advice today. didnt play VBJ due to it being full all the time, played poker a few hours, was up over $312 from an early loss of $100 (sending me to the atm) then lost a big pot when i called a bet to see if he really hit it. left the casino, got food in the gas station they own with $6 comps, plus cash, (its less than $1 hour) BJ comps suck too, went to motel to play online. didnt wish to keep playing. wanted to lock up a win. so this gets me back to $11,900

  14. Tony congratulations on not getting your ass kicked on your most recent blow up. I know your emotions are hard to control right now. Are you going to tell the readers the details of your most recent loss?

  15. As far as I'm concerned, I don't want to read this blog if its going to be you pissing away all your poker money on blackjack. What do you other readers think of boycotting the blog if he plays again? We don't seem to be doing him any good.

    Tony, have you considering applying for disability again yet? It looks you're going to be needing the money soon.

    1. If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it, does it make a noise? If TBC loses thousands of dollars playing blackjack and no one is there to read it, does he not have a gambling problem? Whether he writes about it or not, he's going to continue to play and lose at VBJ, BJ and VP. Boycotting him won't make a difference and Tony is immune to advice.
