i dont post as often as i used to because not only do i not get paid for posting, i think it negatively affects my winrate in the poker games. that being said, my winrate isnt too bad now after a few good nights in a row, bringing me back to $2100 worth of wins for October right as im halfway thru the month. and on monday or tues i should be getting another $1000. and once i return the laptop, (really dont need it, old one is ok i guess, and id rather use the $400 for more important things) then ill have over $16000, instead of the $15,100 i have now.
only playing poker, (and i guess to a smaller extent playing $1-3 isntead of $1-2) does slowly grow the roll over time. imagine how well off id be if id never played nothing but poker all of the last 25 yrs. (and went from playing $1-2 NL to $1-3, then to Phoenix for $2-3 NL, then elsewhere for $2-5 NL, etc). do each level for like 1 yr each as the money slowly accumulates and this is how most people advance in limits over time, though a lot of them skip the in between step of $2-3. considering how much i blew on BJ or VP or VBJ in the past few years, stopping this leak wouldve saved me close to $50k. then id have the bankroll needed for $2-5, getting my citizenship documents, learning to drive, $5k or so on dentistry, prepaying a yrs rent, etc. what i wish is i could take 20 yrs off my life and be 27 instead of 47, so id have plenty of time and be appealing to women again. or wouldve had the pokerstars opportunity now for the first time when it was loaded with bad players instead of the very tiny roll i had then when spending my entire days online with Britni and Lorna. no one even uses yahoo messenger no more.
But i do feel things will be better from this day going forward (as long as Hillary dont get us into a war with Russia). Let's stay the hell away from attacking Assad, co-ordinate with the Russians against ISIS as trump says, and let them do the work for us. But financially, no more losses in casino games eating the roll up. Josie disappeared a long time ago where she missed out on seeing the day ever come where id be playing nothing but poker.
----well if it wasnt for such poor internet access last night here in my room, i wouldve finished updating this blog yesterday.. but now i can make the blog larger. cdizzy was playing in the room tonight for a while. i was in the game for $1324 and cashed out $1072. lost several pots early on, one with set of 999, one with missed flush and straight draw, one with 444, and one where i gutshotted nut broadway on the turn, and lost to the boat on the river.
so when i wake up, between noon and 4 pm today i can pick up my $1000 for being in the top 30 in hours. this will grow the roll a bit tomorrow once its added. i can still return a laptop to grow it more. got nothing out of my free play chips tonight, i was up a bit, then put them all on 2 spots what was left, but i got dealt 22 against the dealers 5, was forced to use my own money to split, then lost the hand.
