Such horrible weather, it screwed up everything

So today i check out of my room in the Nugget in sparks about 11am and give my bags to the bellmen and go to play a little BJ for a bit. ive been winning today, yesterday and the day before in both BJ and in poker, so much so that im back to the $26,000s from the $23,000s. Including $400+ from the mixed game in the atlantis yesterday, $200+ from the $1-2 NL in the peppermill yesterday, $400+ from the $3-5 NL in the peppermill the night before, todays $500 win in the silver legacy, yesterdays $600+ win in the nugget, Plus todays $1000 win in the nugget right after i checked out.

U can see how much ive lost in Reno, by how much ive been given free rooms. 4 nights in the peppermill, 5 nights in the Sparks nugget, and 6 nights in the silver legacy.

Now to discuss how tonights plans got destroyed because of the weather. uve never seen rainy wet snow til u seen todays weather in reno. so much so my socks got soaked walking around. so many trips back and forth to the train station. it was supposed to leave at 4pm. they said check back at 5.30-6. i did, they said 7pm. then 8. then 10. by then i was thouroughly fed up, and the guy in the station who couldnt go home yet and on overtime (station normally closes at 4.45) and told me the train was still 3 hours out wasnt in a good mood either, and he felt i was taking it out on him. i convinced him to refund the entire trip, without being charged a fee for it. so it will take a few days. But the $321 is going to come back. when it does, ill be over $27,000.

Of course, ill end up rebooking another ticket, but maybe this time ill book a plane. im using days 5-6 now in the silver legacy. got 2 nights tonight from the host. just checked in 2 hours ago. (the previous nights i lived in sparks).

had some plans for a vacation. it involved riding a train, a bus, and a shuttle. visiting 9 or so different tiny casinos in a small mountain time, the different options of where to sleep, quite a few hotels, some for $40 with 4 hours poker, (the midnight rose) and then other casino hotels with free rooms for 550 points (no idea how much coin in this is). or 650 points on weekends. no idea if this sells out too. seems one place rents long term, but with only 6 rooms. wouldve been nice to check out their BJ games too. then of course id probably check out blackhawk/central city too. the isle there gives free rooms with 6 hours sun-thurs, but it seems there might not be a game or at least NL. and of course in the NL games its $100 max.

but now what do i do, im still in reno for 2 nights.

    1. Lolololol good? Forget about bluffing. Nobody folds for 100.
      $7 rake.
      Either super tight or suck out city. Cant bet more than 100, so even counting cards in blackjack is not much of an advantage. I know because I play every week.
      A good player that dont run bad will average $8 dollar an hour during a year's time.

  2. Check in with Todd Hoffman for a job in a gold mine just north of Blackhawk. His crew is one of the crews on a reality TV show about gold mining. He claims to be a christian so you should be able to get some sort of job as a laborer at the gold mine he will start working again this spring.

    2. Todd's company is named 316 Mining LLC. Looks like Fairplay was the area that he mined and it is actually southwest of Blackhawk about 90 miles.

  3. If you don't know about snow in the winter in northern Nevada by now, you will never figure it out. By the way it snows in Colorado too.
