The main reason for the lack of updates is my attention has been mainly focused on playing live $1-2 NL, to slowly get the roll built back to where i can play with far less stress about swings of $200 or so. its been working for the most part. after paying the rent last wed, i had less than $8800. and today im in the $9500s. seems $300 weekly rent is affordable but it wont be the first week i dont have an overall win for the week. and its still highly overpriced. $16 per hour is close to $800 per week if this were to hold up. but i need to get in my hours, which left little time for the blog.
None of us who write blogs need to feel obligated to update them any more often than we feel like it. most of us arent even getting money for our blogs. its been ages since ive made something off it.
its possible i wont do no more traveling after all for a while, but i never really know. if i can afford the $300 weekly rent im less inclined to uproot myself, (traveling is NOT comfortable or pleasent) and neither is packing suitcases with cans of food, and not having enough space and hoping they return the cash deposit quick enough to board a bus train or plane. nor to not know where im going or getting into. Nick might be living Rays house for quite some time to come. Vince has one other person living in his house still. Jacksonville FL seems like a nice room near slightly cheaper motels by the week, but i dont want no more plane costs or long journeys. i do miss NJ though. But the worry when i first got into town with only $8100 left after paying the first weeks rent is slowly dissipating. u see, i feel i can win over $100 a day again at poker. besides the min buyins are lower here than in most cities.
i am going to deposit $100 of it into bovada for the bitcoin 20% bonus (must clear first of course thru lots of play) since im tired of having next to nothing in there. down to $8 once more since i lost some tournies since my $50 deposit last week.
had i not blew over $250 the other night in the atlantis on VP once the game broke, id be better off. biggest loss since coming to reno and is why i dont like to go to the atlantis. they dont have the 100.03 VBJ bartop the peppermill offers plus comps of course. instaed i played 99% VP deuces
