Trip report, Parx

i've forgotten some of the things which annoyed me at Parx, and i should hunt up in the search feature on this blog the word "parx" so i could find the old entry which listed them. mainly, the $2 chips. by the way i found out at sugarhouse u can straddle from any position but the blinds. Parx is now under the gun only. Certainly ran up a huge Uber bill yesterday, since i stopped at the wrong bitcoin atm on the way, (too much out of the way) realized later online theres a closer one. Only $17,800 left.

i decided NOT to sit in the $10-20 stud8 Big 0 mix last night, and found a $1-2, which didnt go much longer, then moved to a fresh table when it broke. $60 min $300 max but one good rule is when coming from a broken game all options are open, from the min buyin to much more than the max (if u left the other game with this much). since it cannot be policed, im sure its abused constantly by people adding a few extra $100 chips. i eventually was in the game for $260, but left with $530. not sure if anyone at the table knew me from online, but possibly the guy on my immediate left did.

i was annoyed by the fact my comps had disappeared, as had any free play offers id got shortly after leaving last year. the waitress service is extremely slow when the rooms packed with people before the promotions end.

only went here because i didnt have a room fri night in ac, and i didnt wish to lose more on the $2 min 3 card poker machine in the Trop where i dropped $1500+ the day before. was so tired i slept 1 hour (less) on the train into Philly, then went looking for the atm. by the time i finally got to my hotel it was after 1 pm, and got checked in.

im glad to see Ray finally got his car replaced, thru financing. it will be a better car than the one he previously had. hope he does well this evening in detroit. Though in Detroit u can buy in for more by matching the big stack (greektown only, not motor city) here theres good selection of different games and with $1000 max in $2-5 instead of $500 u can martingale ur buyins.

im keeping this short instead of a loong dissertation into many things which pissed me off over this past week. too much work to type, this is long overdue needs to be posted now. suffice it to say a lot could be done out here with the $45,000 roll i blew in reno as far as the many things i needed to get done. here it could be invested in more poker, and if i did play BJ, would be in better rules.

  2. Anyone else feel badly for Ray that he seems to have been sucked into the vortex that is TBC's life? Poor guy...

  3. Suffice it to say when your roll was $45K there's a shitton of coulda, shoulda, woulda water that passed under the bridge. The best thing you can do right now is forget about the highwater mark of your roll and concentrate on where it currently is at and where it is going.

  4. Two quick questions, Tony (your life fascinates me!):

    1) What do you typically order from the drink waitresses?

    2) You mentioned dropping $1,500.00+ on the 3-card poker machine. Do you feel you have an edge on that machine? If you don't have an edge, why are you playing? I did a quick check on line and it says that, if you play optimally, you can lower the house edge to 2.1%, max...

    s.i.
