It's been quite a long time since i've lost in a live casino poker table. the last 10 or more sessions on my phone, theyre all wins. new roll of $19,100 from around $18,000 several days ago. and this money is going to be used for the dentist soon, i think ive found the one in Toledo i will end up using. Ray however, is still spending way too much of his meager roll on pick em poker or keno. sometimes he wins though. more than i would expect. i do think he would be $1000 or so better off had he only played poker. right now hes worried about getting a new (not new) car before Tues so we're not charged for weekly rental again. his landlord owns a dealership or works in one, and didnt treat him right as far as keeping his word. nor did the guy who bought the one which broke down for $200 when he offered him $275 over the phone, then shows up with $200 in person.
i keep buying in for only $50 since im not stuck, (the min buyins so much less here than in NV) and keep winning with it. sometimes been lucky winning early on when i shouldve lost. so many policies different here than in NV. as far as 10 people, straddle rules, requiring u to have a players card to play cash in toledo, etc. a banned player hit the BBJ once and this is to stop this. the worst is in motor city, when every time u go broke, u must get up out of your seat and go to the cage to rebuy chips. Buying chips from the cage to begin with before u sit instead of from the dealer is poor enough customer service but many rooms outside of NV do this.
Rays old truck quit running, so we paid $80 each to rent the car for a week. he had to have a car. it stopped rather suddenly. he should have enough credit to buy a car, and is considering putting it outright on his various credit cards to avoid monthly payment from the other dealership not thru his landlord who does this.
no BJ for me since leaving Jacksonville, except for far less than $100 online with bitcoin. toledo the 6 deck shoes are $15 min. both in detroit and toledo continous shufflers or those not paying 3-2 are lower priced, but no normal BJ games for lower stakes like in vegas reno or shreveport. so im not tempted to play because i feel the min bet is too high. remember im still much less than the $22000 i left reno with. not as low as the $15,700 i reached in jacksonville after buying so much bitcoin but still not good. only good news is ive been over $10,000 for a long time. since 2010, seems close to 80% of the time. much different than in my younger days. i dont buy hookers like i did either in my younger days, could this be co-related?
