Sometimes i feel like i need to hire a full-time bodyguard, and if i ever got to the point where i earned $500 a day from Poker/BJ i would. take tonight for instance. im walking thru the nugget to the Uber/lyft pickup point by the carson tower. im thinking of using the restroom, but i dont like the scary looking homeless black guy walking into the restroom in front of me so i figure ill use the other one by the rush tower, but when i get there, its closed for service. i dont wish to go back, too lazy its such a long walk (and so is the walk from the bathroom to the poker room). so i go to request the lyft, and see 150% surcharge still at close to 5am. odd since it was only 50% at 3am. so i look up uber and uber is much lower, so i use it instead. i could take the bus but i hate to use the boulder hwy bus middle of the night, for 1 thing im let off other side of the street, and i hate waiting 45 minutes for it surrounded by broke homeless people. theres a difference between being homeless like me, and being unable to afford motels. in fact all the times in my life i was homeless, i was the ONLY homeless person i ever met who wasnt addicted to drugs or booze. but i sure would be saving money. in the daylight id took the bus for sure $2 is so much less.
Now when i get out of the uber, i walk next door to the 7-11 on indios and boulder, to buy food for the room. inside the store theres nothing but 2 hookers and a lot of homeless looking black dudes. i dont have no change since i cashed out $406 and didnt get twenties. and im sure not pulling out $100 bill in front of the stores clientele. and i dont like the guy standing behind me too close. i use the atm, and i worry he will see type in my pin. i just wish to swipe my debit without using a pin, but since my debit card contains a chip, they make u use a pin. i never used to be asked if my card had a chip. u could tell the women were hookers by the way they were showing so much skin. and the way anyone familiar with vegas knows this part of boulder hwy. ill never rent here to save money again. no free wifi either. $12 per night. no decent poker near me, nothing but limit on boulder hwy mostly. except a few hours per day in boulder station.
ellis isle i got a scare too. for while playing BJ in there, (due to the 1% cashback with the 10x points) and i know they will soon discontinue it on the VBJ like el c and every other casino which used to give points on dealers angels. to get the 10x points u must take the card out and reinsert it once u hit 500 base points. i discovered this the hard way. but while playing, some broke homeless drunk looking mexican dude walked up i think noticing and staring at my credits (about $1700 worth) divided among 2 spots. (i no longer try to play 5 spots). i sure wasnt going to play with him watching like he wanted me to do. he said that was his lucky spot as his excuse for standing there. i needed to use the restroom, but i worried he would try to grab my vouchers if i cashed out. or follow me into the restroom. lots of homeless people, no security in the ellis isle restroom. i asked him if he wished me to cash out so he could play, but he didnt really respond, just sat in a chair a different type of machine other side of aisle, then later he started sleeping in this chair, obv clue i was right he was broke, unless he wouldve bet $3 min a few times. i know he was just staring at my money cause it happened in the el c and circus all the time, which is why i liked jean and the hoover dam lodge better. no bums there, its more like laughlin or crystal bay which are bum free mostly.
when he was sound asleep i cashed out, went to the restroom, then once i noticed him still asleep, finally cashed in the vouchers thru the kiosk. but i sure felt nervous while he was sitting watching even when he went to do it from 20 feet away instead of right close by.
even played stud and omaha a bit in samstown this morning. but the stud game is too tight and the $1 ante too high. its $2-10 only goes 11am on sat. i did win $73 in the omaha. lost $13 in stud. in the mc donalds, on the street, and everywhere on boulder hwy 90% of the people are broke, homeless or on drugs or pimps or hookers. its not safe area at all and i used to live there.
and though i recovered $200 today minus all the uber or lyft fees, im still over $1400 worse off than 48 hours before. this all started due to losing $224 in $3 live table BJ in az charlies. this is why i made a bad shove in the game in boulder because i wanted to leave and flip to get even but it ended up being worse than a flip and i lost. went to my room to sleep, and woke up still out $523. then i went to the wynn and the only game i won in was PLO heads up against a good 5-10 player. was once up $400 but quit up $91, then lost $500 in the $1-3. got annoyed by the other players, made 1 poor shove and left the encore. this one girl who spoke little english possibly russian or french they let get away with everything cause of her looks. u cant have phone or big box size purse on the felt and no one said a word to her, and it blocked the view of someones chips i thought was allin. and i was pissed the one reg whose a dick who gets free backrubs from the floorlady left with another girl to go to a strip club he wasnt even with. so dumb of women to go to them, this is why i cant relate in the old days women were offended if their man went to one, and thats the kind of women i could relate to and understand much better. if a women goes to one she seems queer to me. for a straight women would rather go to a mens gay bar and see half nude men dancing than half nude women.
i never do good in the wynn, though i won in the PLO. about 30 minutes after i sat it became just me and 1 other guy. i was stuck over $200, but i got it back and up $400 briefly once. shouldve hit and ran on him, but i couldnt since i felt stuck from the $523 loss earlier.
emotions kill u if u are trying to play good poker or BJ.
