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

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
