well rooms sure are cheap in vegas around Christmas. games break up early, and theres much fewer of them. what a difference this week is from the week which is going to follow. about the only thing bugging me tonight is the fact im now out of clean laundry again. Lyft was used multiple times today, making my life much easier.
next week will be 3-4x per week the cost of rooms this week. so glad Vince will be in town on jan 3, wish it were sooner. i still might fly out. not sure where im staying but im not tying myself down booking it before the last minute. wish i had comps here. Vegas wont offer them like other cities do. Vegas is getting very tight. but the poker games are much looser now than 4-5 years ago. but the VBJ good machine era is gone. wish i had the roll then for the old VBJ in el c or Jean, i couldve done well with this $24,100 roll.
so since taking my bus here from Phoenix, ive met grrouchie, Rob, AC and vegas DWP. played poker with all of them, and im sure at least 2 of them will write blog posts soon. im playing much deeper than in the old days and winning much more too. but i think ive been running hot lately. u see over $1000 of my winnings were on the el cortez VBJ (they moved it to the keno side) and this is unbeatable in the long run, but the house edge is very small. shuffles every hand, and the points suck since it takes 20x as much play as it used to to earn the same amount of points.
i forgot the hands so i asked Rob to remind me. and i still dont remember. seems i beat AC with a full boat i dont remember, (but she might) for a lot of money, and another big pot where i river the flush on a missed str8 draw.
and i still need to figure out how to get an experienced atm bitcoin user to accompany me to a bitcoin atm machine. seems quite a few of these exist in vegas, and theres no way to get the owners of them to assist u in person or show up, most live out of state or its not worth their time to help a new customer. ive got to find out how to get it to work. perhaps Ray will also talk of how he tried the one outside detroit and couldnt understand it either? he too seen the online instructions.
tonights NL game in the poker palace was incredibly loose with lots of bad players. and i won over $300 in it. won $34 in the $2 BJ live game while waiting for it to start. u know the one which pays 3-2 and lets u double down after the 3rd card.
never dreamed the day would come when i use city buses as seldom as i do today. Grrouchie, like ac, was nice enough to drive me home and unlike ac, without complaining about it to vegas DWP. we played quite a long time, and i won big in both sessions with friends. i did need to pay $21 when in the game with the 4 of us, had to pay someone to switch tables or id never got to join in the game.
