home in reno (crystal bay actually, but close enough)

just logged out of Bovada with only $190 remaining out of $419, lost a few higher priced DON sngs and then a bit in the PLO8. at least ive not lost any of the $500+ in bitcoin slowly being sent to my bank. i was sending $10-15 to it everyday, but im now sending $25-30 to it every day since my bank account is getting so short. one bank account is only about $2000, the other one is still over $3000.

yes this is a long ways from the $19k i had in shreveport, or the $12,800 i left with. theres still a bit less than $6000 left, counting both accounts, and cash in hand. i held off for a few days buying my ticket out of here into reno (cant afford hotel rooms, certainly not around here) but i had no choice but to spend the $506 out of the lake charles airport. it departs 2.31 pm thurs and stops in DFW then i switch planes and arrive in reno at 6.15pm.

been getting the $39 rate for 4 hours poker play sun-thrus but theres nothing at all cheap to sleep fri or sat.. im on the WRONG boat, the isle isnt as good for $1-3 NL. its mostly $4-8 limit here and breaks earlier at night. the other 2 casinos 2 miles away theres no way to go on foot, its over water, so its a 6-8 mile cab ride for $20 way out of the way. im not spending $20 twice (got to return to my room). however if i was on them other 2 boats (nugget and auberge) theres no way to get a cheap room. there is a walmarts within walking distance of there. theres NOTHING u can get to on foot from the isle. if u dont believe me, google maps. (to go on foot from the isle to the golden nugget)

my cab from coushatta cost me $100. the nearest cabs were in lake charles. id been better off trying to get a tour bus into houston, flying out for less,plus wouldve saved money on expenses last 3 days.

i left shreveport so i wouldnt play any more live BJ. this plan has worked out really well, nothings been lost on live BJ since leaving shreveport. the only BJ ive played was on the VBJ in coushatta (dealers angels, but not a good version of it with the shuffle point hidden). no cashback on it either, and close to nothing in comp dollars to eat with. eventually, on the final day i bet too high and lost a bit over $1000 on it before leaving. plus i took numerous beats in the poker room, went thru 5 buyins in an hour or less of $100 each, and had the best of it every time the money i raised or reraised allin preflop or on the flop. lost every time once to ace ten with ace queen when the 10 hit the river. other time i had aa, once i flopped a full house to lose, etc. i put in over 70 hours of poker there, losing over $42 per hour in the long run. going there was a very bad idea, especially since it cost me $300 to get there to begin with. i was in a horrible mood constantly, snapping back at every employee i felt was rude, the staff, the rude players rooting for me to lose, (all regulars) the ones watching the VBJ, the ones with cigarettes too close by, the employees not thanking me for tips or getting an attitude if i never did, and i dont see it ever ending til i get out of the state, on my feet, with small wins, and relaxed not under stress about how ill survive living expenses. my health is getting no better and im sure my teeth are causing other health issues.

if i felt i must leave shreveport to avoid playing BJ, i shouldve went to reno then, back to detroit, or took the train to st louis. i'd been much better off. the whole idea was to never let myself go below $10,000 and if id used much better judgement, i never wouldve. (for if i wouldnt lost over $10,000 in the last month playing BJ in shreveport, i couldve rode out the losses in poker in coushatta, and not felt pressured to win so badly, so i wouldnt been raising my poker buyins). yes, the final day i lost a huge ton of $100 buyins. but the other days i bought in for too much, and tried to bluff when i got frustrated.

got my uber in the reno airport, very nice driver, and it only came to $54. (half of the cost of a cab or less). picked up some free play ran it thru, and im sitting with $5672. of course theres also still about $800 worth of bitcoin/and or bovada which will eventually be sent to the bank, (if i dont lose it), in the process of so much in increments. i havent been able to reach my old landlord because its no longer his cell. this is a nice suite they gave me free 10 nights. id have enough comps unused for about 5 more nights. tomorrow i can do the atm promo next door for another $50. i would now but i must sleep before i play anything. tired. i only chose to come here because i remember kristi the VIP host telling me this winter while living at rays i had 10 free nites to use anytime.

the vast majority of this blog was typed 1-2 days ago, including the beginning

  1. well i ended up needing to use the bitcoin for a different purpose than it was otherwise intended. (to ship to the bank in installments, or to refund $50 to reimburse me on bovada every time i lost the $5 sng, the $10 sng and the $20 sng so it would slightly increase the $212 now on there.) it was basically sitting there simply to wipe out losses, and not yet shipped to the bank because of uncertainty where to ship.

    2 of the 5 spots on this VBJ were out of order, and might not be up til my 10 days ends. theyre thinking of replacing the machine with the new unplayable model, due to lots of issues with it. so i ended up playing max of 3 spots at 1%, which is within the rules and all i should play. i eventually cashed out down $311, but i never made a bet totalling over $50 combined. so yes my discipline is good.

    to recover the loss, i logged online, and immediately cashed out $371 in bitcoin to send to the bank. this way i will show a small profit in the roll. it usually comes in 1-4 days. so i wont update the roll no more til it arrives. this way i wont need to mention a lower roll.

    of course now im down to only $300 in bitcoin, plus the $200 on bovada since i had to use up so much bitcoin, so very soon there wont be no way to recover drops in the roll. but i do know this. will definitely not let myself go below $5000. will keep this for $1-2 NL once im in reno itself.

    i really wish i could spare $100-200 to make an appt with a doctor for multiple serious health issues.

    2. If you were unwilling to spend $100-200 for a doctor when you had $20,000, why even mention it now that you have less than $6,000? Also, how much will you need to have before you can spare $100-200? $30,000? $50,000? $100,000?

    3. You know Tony, you could have seen a doctor when you had $29,000 ... or $25,000 ... or $20,000 ... or $15,000 ... or $10,000. You won't do it. Pretty soon there won't even be enough of the sockroll left to fund the memorial steak dinner party I wanted to host when you croak. I guess we'll have to do Mc Doubles and fries instead. Sort of the complete Circle of Life.

    4. when i had over $20,000 money wasnt the issue in seeing a dr. the issue was i had no stable location and moved around too much to have a long term regular medical doctor. now i wont be doing no more moving around, i can no longer afford travel. so i have the opportunity to now, but not the cash. the only kind of doctor who will diagnose u right is one uve seen over and over. i didnt see a dr because i wanted a permanent doctor instead of an urgent care 1 time only doctor. i wouldve been able to stay long term in NJ without losing the money if i wouldnt needed to go to shreveport for the ID. i wouldve been able to stay long term in shreveport were i not to have played too much live BJ, and i really didnt trust myself to stop unless i was leaving shreveport. i did quit playing live table BJ once i left.

    5. Just because you can afford travel doesn’t mean you HAVE TO travel.

    6. yes. the TSA told me it would be good til 2018 to fly in the usa without needing a passport with it.

  2. Just out of curiosity, what does your roll need to be at for you to "spare $100-200 to make an appt with a doctor for multiple serious health issues"?

    1. either i need to worry theres imminent death, be in severe pain, or have a stable place to live paid up that i know ill be in for several months. (since i wish for a stable regular MD). i will have to see them so many times for different reasons it will cost multiple $100-200 visits and this wont include the lab work. $100-200 wont fix nothing, and is why i dont bother.

      the govt giving insurance to people is useless too since it dont kick in for most until uve paid $1000-5000 out of pocket first.

    2. Admit your addiction to gambling on this blog and I will stop posting! Admit that you have an addiction. You won't because you are your own worst enemy - nobody to blame but you.

    3. this isnt true--nothing would ever get u to stop posting. when have i ever not admitted i have a bad habit of making bets i shouldnt when im trying to get unstuck?

  3. The dealers should not get a attitude with you if you do not tip. The dealers don't tip you because they are there to make money. Your also there to make money so you should not feel obligated to tip them.

    Some of these dealers make more money then you make. Maybe they should be tipping you.

    If a dealer is not happy with the money he is making he should look for another job instead of giving you crap for not tipping them.

  4. Tony, I gave you a choice.
    Option 1
    Go to Memphis and make a guaranteed $60 an hour with no volatility and a small bankroll needed.

    Option 2
    Go to Reno and grind it out a little at a time.

    You've chosen Option 2.

    Here is the plan. It will work, but only if you do EXACTLY as I say.
    Play the VBJ machine as much as possible for the next ten days. The red sevens count will work, but just don't Martingale unless the count gets really high. If you have losing streaks, don't panic. Just keep playing. The real pros are the ones who tough it out during losing streaks, so if you get stuck, keep calm and bet big. The odds will kick in eventually, so make sure to get as much volume in as possible. Don't waste any time in your room unless other people start playing the machine. Then take a break.
    But definitely play as much VBJ as possible. That way, you can earn more comps and stay there for as long as you can.

    What will you do later? Well, I talked to Kathleen again. She said she feels badly about what's going on with you. She lives in an apartment near the Peppermill. She will let you stay with her, for free, but you will have to occasionally pay for groceries. She said that she remembers you and that you should just come on by whenever you want to since she's usually home. I'll post her address here or send it to you on Facebook when you're ready to go to Reno. I think the two of you might wind up being very close friends.

    1. does she own a car? its hard to believe u without u giving me the cell. no one would wish this posted online. u have her come by me. and no this machine i like outside reno is NOT the machine u were going to suggest in reno.

      i figured the $60 hourly in memphis would only be good like 1-2 hours a week once others built up the bonus. and the rest of the time u would be getting no money, just sitting and waiting for others to play it incorrectly, building it up

    2. i got too broke to go to memphis too

    3. Her boyfriend will be waiting there to beat the crap out of you. No need to panic though.

    4. I don't have a boyfriend. I do have a car though. Stop by Rounds bakery (where I work) and we can work out the details TBC. You need to get back on your feet and have some stability in your life

  5. I think I missed the part where you describe your plan to never fall below $5000.

  6. Tony, you either visit a doctor or you don't. You've spent 20.000 + in your "quest" to see a doctor. Think about that.

    1. the other reason i never did was i dont know which doctor to see. i dont know who takes new patients and i dont like to make calls to find out. i needed an assitant like Ray to set up those appointments for me. lots of people have their friends do it who are incapable.

  7. You don't need someone else to arrange that for you. You need a phone and a bit of courage, start calling doctors offices, just do it!

  8. TBC I went to my dentist and he sent me to a specialist for a root canal $1400 than a new crown $1265. Than they found another tooth that was dead. Extraction only $950. You might as well play VBJ because you will lose money either way.

  9. The way to find a good doctor is to go to one. It may cost you, but will save you much pain in the future.

  10. Tony, Profane here (The Real Profane), i am deeply concerned about your new home, Reno! I have a funny feeling Reno will only be a temporary stop to play VBJ. Your only chance is God! I have a feeling that you need to come back to God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit!!!! Don't listen to the fake Benny he is misleading you down a "Nasty Filthy Dirt Trail". Always take in consideration people are jealous of your "Spirit". None of these readers could do what you have done for this long. Tony my friend you are simply "Powered By Angels".

    PS. Tony take some great advice from me here. Go back to Ray and learn to be away from bad habits with a friend who learned the hard way too!

    1. Such an original troll name. Too bad you're likely a sad, overweight virgin living in his mother's basement and wishing he had a third of the attention Tony gets from his online presence. Do yourself a favor: take a shower, get a job, and find a talent beyond pretending to be someone else on the internet. It's pathetic.

    2. You're right about everything!!!! Even the "Virgin" part. I had thought the internet would change that part but it hasn't worked YET! Until we meet again Koala Magpie sayonara (Japanese for Goodbye in case you didn't know).
