Well i could do what Robvegaspoker does and title my blog "she asked me to whip it out" referring to my earlier dream in which a beautiful young black uber female driver told me if i wanted to i could whip it out for her (i didnt realize she was referring to my seatbelt). or i could title it "why u fucking talking shit" referring to my 2nd dream which i woke up to just now, in fear, at 11.20pm. when a big white guy who was in a band dressed up in shirts says LSU and with a trumpet with a ton of others in the band said this to me when i commented on how i, (while flying about 6-8 feet in the air,) couldnt get around him and was boxed in to where i couldnt reach the door on the north side of the gym, and i didnt wish to go out the door on the south side the wrong way, for i was trying to reach a casino. i dreamed i was mad he was mad at me because he would continaully keep moving to where i couldnt move boxing me in and when his band leader tried to jump in the way so he wouldnt hurt me, he said this then tried to get up to hit me, then i woke up for good. in the dream, they were local poker players in the eldorado.
or maybe title it after the earlier dream i first had, (slept 3 times this afternoon) which would be "mom, the people ur witnessing about Jesus to are trying to steal all ur scrabble pieces" in this dream i was about 30 feet up in the top of a huge truck and the guy and girl mom had been talking to in her house across the street were getting in the truck down below (im by the roof) and with big boxes to hold expensive scrabble memorabilia (which she really doesnt own). then im in her house, telling her about it, then climbing out the window to go find them, going down stairs, through a large church which i think is one of my kind of churches, big pentecostal one, but turned out to be named st judes which i seen going out the door, and im asking an asian lady where to find the bus. while in the church i was trying to find a place to hide out to sleep (hey some have 100s of rooms, even schools, etc) after everyone left the building and services ended, like i did once or twice when homeless 18-25 yrs of age.
But theres more important things to talk about and this blog isnt here for the purpose of talking about scary dreams, which most of mine are. This blog is to talk about why im not comfortable here in shreveport, and why i might even get out of town before the nov 4 freeroll. i dont usually make the money in these even if its a $35,000 freeroll limited to 100 people. if only 10 get paid, why bother? (flushdraw is really going to think im dumb)
see, all my life ive tried to play poker at night (using the excuse games are better) and sleep during the day (the hours its LIGHT outside) This was due to living in weeklies like Budget or siegel suites (and others much worse) 10-25 yrs ago while poor. and i just didnt feel safe in them at night, worried about breakins of my front door while im inside. if theres 24 hour poker its no issue, but here in shreveport, sometimes the game breaks up 3 am or even sooner. and the horrible rake which isnt reduced shorthanded most of the time due to using the excuse "well then we wont let u qualify for the jackpot" (so it stays at $5+2). i feel much safer living where im in an inside hallway (like extended stay america or much better a casino hotel with security to walk u to the room and peek inside for u if u need them to) instead of places which anyone can walk by the door on the outside with no security visible at night, or no office open to call during the night. i do seem to win more too not playing during the mornings or afternoons. different crowd.
Now lets talk about unusual rules here u wouldnt expect to find in most pokerrooms. (and im not referring to the free buffet everyday most regulars get). some of these rules are good. for instance, the ONLY way there can be a button straddle allowed on the table is if ALL of the players voted YES unanimously to allow it. (new players wont be getting to vote--just those at the table already. once its changed, new people sitting down must accept it). of course, the only reason i would vote NO is because this casino forces the small blind to act first instead of doing it the correct way like Wynn, nugget, peppermill, etc.
if someone requests a setup, (and anyone objects) u cannot get a setup. Truth is, im surprised the whole rest of the table dont object all the time. all it does it hold up the next hand 5 minutes.
But heres the most unusual rule at all. say theres 2 shorthanded games, and people wish to combine at 1 of the 2 tables. well if they wish to combine, they might draw for seats. but if anyone dont want to combine they dont combine. so here's how it went down, with Jacob working the floor late in the middle of the night. there were 4 of us, 5 if u count the asian guy who set chips down and was gone the whole time. one guy quits on his BB because he dont like playing this shorthanded, and theres only 1 seat in the other game and its on me to post the BB. Fearing if i posted, theyd break the game next hand and id be out $3, i didnt wish to post and i said can we draw? the one guy preferred to play 3 handed since there was only 1 seat open, not 2 or 3. the other guy was willing to play. i was going to just sit out til we could draw, or pick up a 4th player. so i didnt post. then the same guy said well if theres only 2 of us who wish to play lets draw. (since his odds went from 1 in 3 to 1 in 2). i told the floor hey id like to draw and he said since im sitting out im not an active player, no more than the other guy not in the game with chips there and asked me if i thought it would be fair the other guy got to draw. i then told him, im willing to play 3 handed if i had to. and he said its too late theyre already drawing, u made it clear to me already u wouldnt play 3 handed, and theyre willing to play and u wont, and said i cant keeping changing my mind instead of making up my mind. i was going to discuss this with the main manager when shes in, in no other casino would i be screwed like this. i did not miss a single hand, and id been dealt in the last hand. and those guys were no more willing to play 2 handed, though they swore they wouldve than i was willing to play 3 handed. (proof being once it got to HU, they drew)
