well, i ran into flushdraw twice the other day, (this was before he caught his lyft to Michelles house--i assisted him with transferring his funds into lyft) and noticed he did well in both tourneys to money in each. very well done. i was going to ask for the phone while he was at the bar to tell her hi but didnt. i was also going to wait for him to update his blog before i updated mine, but maybe he is waiting for me to post first, so ill go ahead and post. the last blog was too short anyway.
I'm still living with Vince (after using my 3 free nights up) but he is now back in vegas from his trip out of town. (the trip which cost me so much in omaha high low). where i discovered my favorite machine in the Pioneer got replaced. i did find 1 very good VBJ however, but it wasnt in laughlin.
today he wanted me to ride out to lake mead with him and his friend where he would be going swimming, but i couldnt since i was eating lunch with tatude in the hardrock pool so he dropped me off there saying hi to tatude. me and him ate and i met his new girlfriend. then he offered me a buyin into a tourney. he is planning on meeting lightning for the first time, which surprises me to learn because id thought theyd met. both say they havent.
speaking of tourneys, im glad to see flushdraw doing so well in them. its certainly better for him than $2-4 limit. i took him to the buffet with my comps (without no fees) after he got paid and we sat and talked for some time about what to do, and my health concerns.
im no longer getting the $5 discounts on lyft (they really think u can use 10 rides in just 2 measly weeks?? $5 off each one for the 1st 10) but it expired today. but it still seems cheaper than uber. so maybe my phone being unable to redownload uber was a blessing. thank God for Kristi suggesting it.
im quite worried about my stomach feeling so fat so much. Ray says i should spend 20 minutes in the gym daily like he does. would it help? i feel im needing more new pants.
and quite annoyed by the sheer presence of casino ashtrays everywhere u go. only like 10% of the customers smoke, yet they feel the need to sit ashtrays on 100% of the machines, where u cant feel free to sit down nowhere to type something into ur phone without first removing from u the annoying ashtray right next to u. so dumb to piss off 90% of the customers to accomodate the 10%.
the game last night was quite loose, and i lost over $540 in it, (most of the weeks profit. but im still a bit over $11,100) almost was over $12k once.
a dealer named cameron from ceasers poker room sat down, with his black friend i think might be patches, but maybe it not him but someone else. they originally were not on the same table til late when it combined.
he was quite loose, winning like crazy, the air force guy next to him also winning got annoyed once at his girlfriend who was drunk. once him and his GF moved to the other table, he commented on how he could "find a better looking hooker if I had his money" funny thing is, today id swear i seen a very similar looking girl looking homeless standing at a bus stop vince drove past. i dont think she looked bad. but yes he loosened up the game. by then i was out lots of money but wasnt playing bad.
heres proof i wasnt playing bad. a regular whose asian, older lady who kind of reminds me of archies wife from the stratosphere. one pot early on i lost to 3333 when i had AQ and one guy called $20 preflop with 23 when i only had less than $40 behind. (giving him NO pot odds). he too said i think hes a regular from HR in florida.
he won big, then left while i was in the restroom. by then id rebought my final $500 when out $234.
now the pot with the asain lady (over 70 i think) the flop is 333 and i bet with KT, after raising preflop, she calls. turn comes 10 and i feel maybe i needed it. make small bet of $35, she calls. river she checks first to me and i check too where most would bet. but i think im either chopping or behind. i lose my 2nd pot to 3333 of the night. she was quite surprised i didnt bet. but why would i?
when losing big, i am very pessimistic, and expect nothing to win. i had over $300 and i wasnt going to be checkraised allin. this was out of $734 in buyins.
Then another hand i flop 77799 with 77 in the hole, he is on the flush draw with KQ hearts. turn is K river is K giving him boat. one other pot i lost little, this took place today instead of yesterday. i had QT of hearts, flop comes 247 all hearts. i bet $5 get 2 calls. turn i hate, its K of h. i bet $5 get 2 calls. river is blank, i bet $10, fold, raise to $40, i fold, he shows the FLOPPED ace hi flush. i couldnt resist commenting to the regular RICHARD SWARTZ next to me whose a bit crazy and well known himself, about how poorly he played it by not raising me on the flop so id reraise on the flop and lose everything. why did i do this? i was upset i lost since i played it well (and he didnt). u need to get value BEFORE the scare cards come. this is how so many players miss value.
now while in the middle of typing this, i find out from lightning michelle told him i took flushdraw to lunch. so he knows before i post. my vegas winrate is quite a bit less from my reno winrates, but still winning more than the $8-10 per hour i used to here.
im glad i met him, seems like a nice guy. i doubt he wouldve known it was me til i introduced myself. i sure wouldnt known it was him in the tourney would i not be looking at his tweets while it was going. or seen his facebook picture without the glasses
i need to go where i have a better hourly. if i truly make $16 per hour, why dont just start putting in 10 hours per day to make $50k plus per yr? it might work. even considering returning to shreveport.
