this might be the last blog, im thinking of closing it down and becoming a more private person. I've got way too much money to continue doing the blog, and telling everyone where im playing all the time. its best no one even know which city im living in.
4 nights in a row of $1000 plus wins, 3 of them from poker, then a $4000+ win on VBJ in hoover dam lodge in boulder city. i worry every day now how i can protect anything happening to this money. i never had this to worry about. my entire 20s and 30s i was pretty broke much of the time. every time i did run the roll up to over $10,000 a few times, it would rapidly go right back down.
here's why. i used to play lots of VP and VBJ machines with poor paybacks, including the old type 7 hands at once even money VBJ. now, i stick to the VBJ machines with the better payouts, and when i cant find one, i just go to live BJ instead on the 3-2 games.
tonight i was in the game in the nugget for $200. lost it early, and OF COURSE ive forgotten the hand history. rebought $320, and eventually worked it up to about $1050. then i lost a big pot with QQ where i was good til the river on a scary board of 568 and 2 diamonds. the money went allin on the flop, my opponent had like $275 behind and he called $75 preflop with 78 hts and then on the flop. games tonight were more loose, similar to the hardrock. he rivered the flush.
saw 2 guys get 86ed within 3 hours of each other, both on the same table and same seat. security had to escort them both out for fighting. not my table though. But twice i heard Jen yelling to please get security.
odd it was the same seat and table is all.
when i gave back so much reducing my win to only $163, i left and went to the golden gate. their BJ game is wonderful, 3-2 payout, $5 min and the cut card is 90% of the way down, making it the best game in town for counters. once the first 2 shoes were rather uneventful with negative counts, where my bets spread was between $5 and 2 spots of $12, the 3rd shoe got rapidly up to plus 13 running count about 1 8th of the way in. i begun raising bets and the dealer was busting on 16 almost every hand. i was in the game for $410, left the table when the dealer changed end of shoe with $1468. she got a $1 tip close to 20 times. i know this means i tipped out over 100% of my edge, but im still happy.
i still would rather be in reno or shreveport. or elsewhere.
but the main thing is to use this $38,000 on medical, dental, citizenship and possibly other things u might think of which i dont?
