So yesterday, when my plane touched down in phoenix about 25 minutes early, it was no problem getting LYFT to talking stick. nor was it any problem storing my bags and i was originally thinking id take a room there. (for the $98 price on priceline where it dont show the name of the CASINO HOTEL IN SCOTTSDALE). not the $111 price otherwise on priceline, or the $129 u would pay the front desk without using priceline. but i heard there could be a $99 poker rate too, not sure. Then i went to get a copy of my players card and went straight to the poker room and sat in the $3-300 at table 2 in the corner of the room. was so much in need of water i tipped the male server $5. Proud to mention i never went near the BJ tables to investigate the rules and payouts. never found time.
i managed to beat the game for $109, but kept forgetting to post $2 instead of $1 in my SB. then they drop the $1 immediately to confuse people more who arent regs so it looks like u only posted $1. so i would fold hands preflop thinking im 1 3rd of the way in instead of 2 3rds. but i didnt like it when on a $9 pot, they dropped $2+1. $1 on a chop too.
i felt it way too late in the morning to get a room and i only wanted to sleep. plus id rather been elsewhere than Phoenix. so i looked up the buses for gotobus.com and the mexican bus, then took lyft downtown phoenix for another $23. the bus was late, was full, but i got a seat alone cause the lady i sat next to moved to the seat across the aisle with her friend, so i got the seat to myself to lie down and sleep part of the way in. i sure wasnt going to use greyhound. so i only ended up being in Phoenix less than 4 hours.
and once i arrived i still needed sleep. so i didnt go play poker. used a lyft to get a room in a casino i didnt mind bringing my bags to, which i knew would store them, but they gave me a room since many rooms were empty last night about 8.30am. surprised me. i figured id have a problem getting a room this quick, so i might need to check out other hotels.
good news is ive still got $21,200 much less than the $25,500 i left shreveport with, but it is a comeback from $20,300. well over $1500-2000 went to expenses. this is why i must quit traveling. shouldve just went to rays house to cut off expenses. i was worried poor weather would keep him from driving to detroit.
And this hotel im staying in for $49+ $30 resort fee? at least theres wifi, nice bathrobes in the room, and free bottled water.
and make sure u dont overlook or miss any of my blog posts. after not posting more than once per week, this is the 3rd post in about 4 days.
