Will not be in reno itself for awhile yet, im still out in the Tahoe Biltmore using the 3rd of my 10 free days and of course i could earn comp dollars for more free nites. (but at a slow rate since i almost never get to bet over $1 since the count never is good, and following the 1% rule even when it is.) so im earning far less than $10 a day in comps. good thing i still had close to $200 from the previous trips last summer with the $18,000 roll and much higher max bets. i do miss playing live $1-2 NL in reno, but the motel i used to live in with little apts for rent with big kitchens by the week evidently has closed down, so ill be paying alot more, be less safe, or be a long bus ride out. this i wont like.
went to the grocery store today and spent $30 on food, and a microwave dish. they have a nice microwave 1000 watt, not the 700 ones common in motels, and a fridge. with a tiny bit of freezer space. did not get over to play poker this evening, been tending to sleep those hours of the day. its important to do the VBJ play like 3am to 10am thereabouts when its empty most likely. 1 of the 5 spots is still out of service.
the rolls increased to $6598, because ive now got rid of all but $100 worth of the bitcoin that had been sitting around growing by as much as $20 per day when the price went up so quick. when i get into reno there will be no BJ, ill be dependent totally on poker results. i had several $100-200 small wins on the VBJ and ALL losing sessions were immediately wiped out by sending bitcoin to replace the amounts lost. this will no longer be possible to do, so i might now be able to have losing sessions again instead of only winning ones.
good news is the Bovada is back up to $300 again, which means if all goes well, it will eventually be turned into more bitcoin on down the road.
couldve gone to toledo but with no good VBJ in the area i didnt wish to eventually end up tempted to play $15-25 min live table BJ right after i recover a few thousand of the roll. too risky. definitely wouldve come in handy the free housing and friend with the car. the only good poker is 60 miles out in detroit though and ray wouldnt wish to sit in detroit doing nothing all day or all this driving. right now i shouldnt spend any more money to do no traveling for a very long time.
