Professional poker players dont deserve a LOWER standard of living than the rest of the population, do u agree?
first off, let it be said i NEVER play candy crush saga on my cell at the poker table, only bejeweled. i dont like the small sized screen and prefer to play it on my laptop. im over level 1191 by the way. one thing thats really been bugging me this time in shreveport is my games on facebook, both candy crush and farm heroes saga, will NOT load in my room where i pay by the week. they will ONLY load when in my free rooms in sams town and in the eldorado. which it seems i will still have in november, just got my november offers. how long does it take to cut someone off? im setting a record for the length of time without playing VP or live BJ. and im not playing VBJ machines here either, for those dont exist in shreveport. just run thru my free play 6 times per month at $30 each in sams town instead of 4 times for $34, and the $115 per week in promo chips in the eldorado. people who know my propensity to play those games whove followed this blog for yrs, such as Josie and lightning, know what a major accomplishment this is. This is the main reason i expect to be successful in being much more financially successful by the time im 50 as long as we arent attacked by the Russians with nuclear weapons simply because too many republicans didnt get out to vote for Trump.
on friday night im sitting in a great $1-3 NL game in the eldorado. I'm in the game for $460, and at one point have not much over $200. then i win several hands in a short period of time, including one that amazed me when a new young player whose not a regular and isnt there to get freeroll hours sits on my left and buys in deep. i think he lost back some of his win before this took place if i remember correctly. ive got AK and raise the $6 straddle UTG to $34 in late position. so he makes it $80 on my left, whether we were the blinds or he was the button i dont remember. everyone else got out preflop, and the flop comes A 10 3 with 2 spades. i bet $135 and he goes allin for like $200 more, maybe less. i like the flop because i think it gives him less likely to hold AA. but he goes allin so quickly i worry hes got the set. turned out he only had JJ and i won big.
then shortly thereafter he was replaced by a nice guy whose really good, and bought in for $700. i left to eat, and took my chips. there were 4 women in the game at one point too, including the girl next to me on the other side who swore to me she worked in the strip club but the guy claimed she used to work in the poker room and now floors in the horseshoe. wish i knew whats true. the employees all know her, ive seen her in before talking to the staff, but never playing. she clearly didnt care about the money, was playing really loose.
so i went to eat, then when i got back, sat in the omaha hilow game. why? cause my hour wasnt up yet and Greg swears he wins in that game, dont see how. my win rate logged on my cell is negative $12 per hour in omaha for the year. its $10-20 limit and i lost $400 in the game (almost) over the next 5 hours or so. this gave back a large chunk of the $600 id just won before i went to eat.
So i wanted to have something for the win i had. for this was the biggest $1-3 NL win in quite some time ($460 buyin with a cashout of $1059) i knew i was tired of not being able to play games on facebook at home, I wish i had a bigger fridge too. but i dont like the idea of spending like $150 week more on housing to get it either. wish there was extended stay america here like there is in vegas. and i still need to screen the bank statement i received to fix it so i can play on ignition. i wouldnt be thinking so much of moving if i liked the place im staying in much better. however i do feel its much better than all the siegel suite and budget suites options in vegas.
so i got in a cab and instead of going straight home, i went to walmart. i needed some milk and other food for the fridge anyway, and needed earwax medicine, and an ear syringe. for maybe then i wouldnt need to put the volume close to 100% to easily hear trumps speeches. but i thought maybe a new laptop would fix these issues, and of course, theres the missing a key which dont work (unless of course i use the online keyboard at all times) which i got in the habit of. once u use the free internet where im living, u then no longer get the option to show up for the faster service for a small fee. i dont think it really improves anything anyway.
But when i came home with a new $416 laptop ($37 of which went to state sales tax) (why my roll is now only $13,500) i tried it and couldnt get it to load at first either, and i wasnt too happy. but after quite a long pause with it frozen and buffering, the game loaded and once it loaded, it stayed up for the next 24 hours. im not sure what it would do if i turned my laptop off. so i got to play multiple games and advance about 4 more levels. i tried the faster internet too, for the one day price instead of the 1 month price which is much less overall. i just wanted to see if it made a difference, but it dont seem too.
the question is i got 15 days to decide, do i keep it or return it for a refund? and if i keep it, what do i do with the old one? how would i sell it, and first make sure my passwords arent discovered? i've saved the boxes and receipts in case. and i might spend lots of money for better housing too. i think i deserve a much higher standard of living than im getting if i really can make over $3000 per month in the long run here. it might even be over $4000. theres tons of places to live i've never tested, but im going to test the internet very thouroughly everywhere before i move in from now on. because its so easy to just renew the room instead of move out everytime the rents due to simply due to laziness over moving.
this is the news i spoke of on twitter i dont know if its good or bad i bought this. id rather spend my money doing things which make my life more pleasent than chores like dentistry. i spent $15 more on another 3 books the other day too.
im hoping to get the $1000 on oct 18, then id like to win enough in the freeroll nov 6 to be over $15k or $16k. if i get first and its not chopped, theres a slight chance to be over 20k
