bitcoins price is skyrocketing and women in poker.

So am i doing the right thing tonight? (i'm sitting in my room playing with the $281 online Bovada after the live $1-3 here in coushatta broke up instead of sitting on the VBJ machine). why? because i won $197 there earlier, and didnt wish to keep playing but to go write down the win. oh, $103 more in the poker room too. i'm still here because i have 0 transportation out of here of any kind, no cabs except for the ones in lake charles 36 miles out. only the tour buses to tx.

some would say the right thing is to go back to reno, as low as i am to grind $1-2 since i cant afford $1-3 now. i need to be where housing is $150 week, not $300-400. but i dont wish to spend money flying. too broke. mom says the right thing to do would be to go back to toledo, and live with ray.

i mightve still lost on BJ and VBJ in the past month, but never nearly as much had i stuck to the right bankroll requirements. tonight i did never betting over 2 spots of $35. of course had i not dropped over $1500 on VP in the past month this too wouldve helped.

they renewed my room til friday so this is 4 free nights so far. nice fridge and microwave in the room, wifi works good. once i stop getting these, ill need to pay $100 for a cab to lake charles i guess. but the rooms there too expensive, so i need to go to biloxi or go west. was relieved tonight to find out i can get tomorrow and thurs free, thought my time might be up.

looking in my records, seems the total bitcoin sent to my bank so far is $160. theres still another $425 plus in bitcoin online which could be sent. as more of it is sent, it will help increase the roll

----wrote yesterday and saved to draft----

this room is NOT a good place to play poker, im only still here because my free rooms hasnt yet ended, and im in no hurry to spend big money to leave and spend money to rent them elsewhere. but my hourly here is horrible. Lost $374 in the $1-3 NL today, then recovered most of it on the VBJ. am still barely holding $11,100. it will go lower, ive got expenses to pay to get settled in, nor do i have enough for $1-3 NL anymore. cannot play my best game anymore with $300+ in front of me since i want zero losses. i did good, but it does have swings.

my game has progressed from the OLD days (2004-2009 min buying $40-50) and i cant play well anymore with less than $150 in front of me. but now that im getting so short, playing with over $300 when stuck isnt good either. for i keep losing money trying to bluff so i can get unstuck and go.

i wish i couldve taken a picture of the girl in seat 1. she won 2 big pots, cashed out $1200+ busted one old man who flopped the nuts. they both put in $500+ on the flop, her with KKK and him with nut broadway. very good looking woman under 29 and i was sure she was with the black guy in seat 2, but i was wrong. one hand she busted a guys set of 888 on the flop of 842 with A2 runner runner AA. one of the dealers said shes here quite often, ive never seen her. i wish i wasnt afraid of being caught snapping a photo, so i could have one to post.

heres the problem. she wore headphones, seldom spoke a word, was texting the whole time, and had a shirt saying "poker is my business" with a graph pointing upwards. horrible horrible for a women. a woman is supposed to flirt with the guys, interact with them, and loosen up the game. so the guys give her money. not by sheer suckouts. Karen in Reno Josie in Boston, and cdizzy in winstar do a great job on this, and she did NOTHING to improve the game.

i shouldnt mind so much the lack of food comps when ive got 4 hotel rooms in a row, but this is just not what im used to. i worry ill lose by even going out of the room. getting short of money isnt good for ur confidence level. this is the main reason i shouldve never bet too much in BJ back in shreveport. it destroys ur ability to play poker. think of how comfortable id felt traveling over southern louisiana with the extra $8000. or buying in for more.

its not BJ which got me broke its chasing losses. martingaling poker hurting me as bad as martingaling the BJ

  1. According to your reports you won $14,840 playing poker in Shreveport but left with a roll $6,000 less than when you arrived. Do not tell yourself lies about martingaling poker hurt you as much as martingaling BJ because the numbers tell you that is simply not true. Playing poker desperate not to lose may be hurting you now but only BJ
    hurt you in Shreveport.

    You need to look at how you mucked up Shreveport honestly so you can take steps to not do it in the future. You made poor choices but if you try to explain them away instead of accepting them you will keep making the same poor choices over and over and over again.

    1. Sadly, we all know that Tony will never learn from his mistakes. Perhaps he's incapable of learning from his mistakes due to addiction or otherwise. Tony documents his antics due, in large part, to some need to feel like strangers are "proud" of him; yet virtually everything he does provokes the opposite reaction. It's depressing to "watch" him constantly fail at life and never change course. As he's incapable/unwilling to change, this story ultimately has but one ending [of course]. Anyone who doesn't believe this hasn't been following this shit storm long enough. It's amazing he's still surviving; but it's inevitable that he'll be back in a box at some point. Whatever. It is what it is.

    2. i think my dream last night of standing naked at a craps table bears this out. i dreamed u turned in ur pants while standing there, and u hid behind the table, and the casino checked ur pants in while u play. seattle irish would say its me feeling powerless.

    3. I have been following the TBC show for about 7 years. I miss the times in Vegas when Tony issued challenges to come play poker against him at XXXXXXX and try to take his money. It is quite sad actually that he has been banned in sooooooo many places in Vegas. But in the current state of affairs RENO is the place for Tony to catch his breath and rebuild.

    4. Sounds to me more like you were waiting for the cheeseburger opportunity.

      So in other same old, same old news ...

    5. If I did not know Tony, I would be offended by his commentary on women. But as it stands, his knowledge of women is pretty much on par with his knowledge of orca pod behavior or the finer points of skydiving so I give him a pass. What are MEN supposed to do for a poker game? They can barely smell decent and manage a rude snarl.

    6. AC: do you know why women wear jock straps when skydiving?

    7. if she is playing poker and wearing headphones, she is GAY obv.

    8. Uh, women don't wear jock straps...but I'll ask anyway just to get the punchline out of the way.

    9. So they don't whistle on the way down...

    10. it's funny tony thinks the woman should liven up the game when he's miserable to be around and ruins games. while i normally hate people at the table w headphones bc a social game is always better i can understand why an attractive woman wears them as women put up with a lot of bs at the table.

  2. Tony, what have you done to "improve the game" as you put it. Why is a woman player supposed to flirt?

    Have you ever lost $6000 in a day martingaling poker? What is the biggest one day lose in poker for you?

    1. to get a better understanding of whats happening here in coushatta, here are my sessions. for just over 40 hours played, im LOSING $45+ per hour for $1800+ total.

      today i played 3 sessions, lost 3 out of 3. lost the last 5 sessions in a row. in fact, had i not played VBJ, i mightve not got my room renewed again for friday night, and i recovered $150+ of today $500+ poker loss. back to $10,800. were it not for 13 bitcoin deposits sent to my bank id be about $10,600

      Delete
    2. the entire $1800 is poker losses, but altogether, i have $2300 less than i came here with. i didnt lose the whole $500 in vbj, some was spent on food and hotel first 2 nights, plus the $100 or so lost on VP. losing very little in VBJ

    3. Tony you didn't answer my questions. I was asking about single day biggest poker loss versus BJ or other table games losses. And what about the questions about your contribution to the game, and female poker players.

  3. 1800 dollars is nothing compared to your blackjack losses. You'd be way up on poker still over the past few months without the blackjack nonsense. I'm sure you know 40 hours is not a significant sample size.

    1. real issue is the game sucks here and breaks early from say 2.30 am to 10.30 am, im not repaying $300 again to ride to shreveport. no way out of here. and the second i leave ill be charged big money i cant afford for rooms. won only 2 of 10 sessions, biggest win only $103

    2. If you are losing there that badly how can you afford to stay? Wouldn't it be cheaper to just get a room somewhere else? When you decided to go to this place what was your exit plan? Why don't you take one of the tour buses to Austin or San Antonio and move on from there?

    3. Ask S.I. about the poker room in a place called Wayward Pines Idaho???

    4. Why wouldn't you invest $300 to get back to a place where you were crushing the other poker players? $300 is only one buy-in. Think of how many buy-ins you would win back. It would be a great investment. Why stay somewhere that has poor poker action and continue to bleed off your bankroll? You need to rebuild your roll. Seems like Shreveport is one of the best places you have played poker in. I just don't understand you.

    5. im not being charged for the room is why

    6. The thousands you threw awawa like a moron monkey paid for the room - it is FAR from FREE, u see. How can a "genius" be this stupid? Please keep the blogs coming.

    7. no, the entire readership but u know this isnt true, for the hosts dont see the $1800 lost on poker, they only see winnings or losses in casino games or machine. which ended up being less than $500 for the week.

      they did see an average of 7 hours a day in the poker room however. one of the players told me they give free nites in their RV park for 4 hours. (only for those with RVs)

      found out tonight i cannot get saturday free but i could get the hotel up the street for under $80 with tax for saturday night, then get a free room on sunday. or i could go ahead and leave.

    8. Didn't you get an opportunity to purchase an RV a few months ago?

  4. It might suck to pay to go back, but $20 an hour over a thousand hours is tough to ignore.

    1. might win $20 per hour in lots of other cities too. maybe even here and the losses were a fluke. i do know ive not played live table BJ here, this is the main thing i wanted to stop doing.

      today i played omaha8/high round by round. $4-8 with $1-2 blinds, which is so much better and makes beating it easier than with full priced blinds. (lets u overcome the rake). wish more places did this, maybe u guys know of places i dont.

      i once had my $63 buyin up to $251. but left with under $150 to sleep while i could still. i played it due to so much bad luck in $1-3 NL this week, and mainly due to their broken wheel promotion, but unlike 4 of the players who at various times won $100 off it, i never got a dime. both of my 2 qualifying hands were dealt during omaha high, (different promo those rounds). both times i had AA52. so they didnt count like they wouldve in the hilow portion. promo during hi rounds is AA88 or better dealt to u in ur hand. (trips dont count). many hilow pots were over $200 extremely loose good action, and with 1/2 price blinds nitting it up is easy. the game will go tomorrow too being the weekend.

    2. Could you explain how half blinds let you overcome the rake?

  5. Your ideas about women in poker are quite interesting. You should expand on this and write a few more paragraphs detailing your feelings on the issue.

  6. While you're explaining women in poker. Please explain women in drag racing, women in the military and women on the Supreme Court. I need these things clarified for me too.

  7. Maybe let Tony think of one existence of a woman first AC?

  8. In the poker game of life, women are the rake.

  10. Take a day off or 2 and spend no money. Might make you feel better. Might enable you to play better.
