Friday night Vince and i went to Jerrys nugget, picked up my $25 in free play and $10 in free food. Then we went to the poker palace in north LV where i lost $71 in BJ and $10 in video poker while waiting for the $20 tourney to end i staked vince in, and the cash game to start up. first time i ever remember losing in live BJ there due to good rules, (u can double down after the 3rd card). finally the cash game started and i bought in $137 in odd change, leaving 5 $100 bills in my pocket. plus vince busted out and needed $100 for the 2nd cash table which soon started later.
found out thru dallas on twitter that of the 3 tables going in the cannery, some of the tables had quite a few NL overs buttons in their $2-6 game, and vince much prefers to play this to NL. so we thought of going over there soon, but Vince said lets not go right off. i was mainly concerned he would lose the $100, but i still prefer the poker palace to the cannery.
i started off winning, and had my buyin up to just over $250. then he came over to tell me he lost his chips and we decided to go on my BB. then i found AK and raised the straddle to $23. 2 people called. including the straddler who vince says plays there all the time. with a big stack since its no cap on the buyin. Flop comes K9T with 2 spades and ive got the A of spades, king of diamonds. straddler, as usual, checks dark. other guy checks to me. i bet $65. both call. one has $9 left. turn comes Q of spades. he checks, the guy whose almost allin bets the $9, which i figured he would which of course gives the straddler the option to check raise me allin which i dislike. i call, because i fear im beat, so i dont raise. sure enough he check raises me allin for like $170 more. i shouldnt call, but i do since im stuck and know ill need to stake vince one more time in the cannery. i ask for the J of spades, and were we all surprised when it came for my royal.
i quit, cashed out $647.
in the cannery vince and i sat in the same game and played for 2-3 hours where i won $114 and he turned the $100 into $218. so i got the $200 back thank God. i was worried he would lose it. game was incredibly good, which is why dallas loves the room so much. he was on a different table. without the overs buttons. i didnt know it but vince told me the pot he won in the hardrock the other day where i also staked him, was with a bluff too. i and the rest of table was convinced he had the boat.
Then he dropped me off in the nugget and went home, since i wanted to wait til 6 to go home to sleep, so i could sleep days and be awake nights. i played there for 4 hours, was holding my own with $120, til i lost with KK to AA on the final hand. took an uber home, for less than lyft by $3. i thought lfyt was supposed to be less? herbies friend robert drove for lyft the other night. we talked about the 10x points on the VBJ, where im up over $2600 since coming to vegas and how odd it is someone with the big money didnt burn out the promotion yet. by the way once the count hits minus 3, theres no longer an edge. but the edge could get over 102% on the good counts.
where im living now Vince has a washer and dryer right inside his condo. in fact he has this in both of the ones he owns.
for the first time in a year, i needed advil last night for the teeth which need fixed. ill have too many holes if removed. i need to look into an iv dentist without the 2 month wait for it. if possible, but i dont know where ill live. plus my eyesight is getting harder to tell the suits. got to look close so the flop wont be blurred. i worry something is majorly wrong. and if u go in for the low cost eye exams, what to tell the dr. i dont think all drs know the most.
