no progress

well, May is almost done and im still out well over $1000 for the month, making this the worst month since i started keeping records for poker only. this is why this years hourly is only $8+. and my mouth still feels funny since the work is complete, so im still taking the antibiotics. but i need a regular md, my sleeps disrupted nightly every 1-2 hours to use the restroom a very small amount. plus ive still got teeth on the left side needing work. and i dont know how long ill be in vegas would still rather be at Rays. its cheaper, and he leaves the house without wanting to wait all day. Plus he's there with me in the poker room much of the time.

the good news is theres better action in vegas than i remember on previous trips. looser games i think. too bad this year i wont be able to afford any of the tourneys, i just cant bring myself to do it when im not winning. remember unless u are staked, not more than 1% should be used to enter a tourney. even the NL horse or PLO8 events in the Nugget Grand are $250. seems higher priced than i remembered 2 yrs back when i think i last played.

i dont think ill ever have the $45,000 back, even in the next 10 yrs. all i can hope for is this never drops below $10,000 and the measly hourly rate i still earn continues enough to cover my expenses and that i can somehow improve my health.

Because Vince has his own washer and dryer in his condo, which i have keys to, i can have my laundry done here too. i think ill have to move out end of june when Lisa from NJ comes to live here.

the first week i was up close to $700 or more but it all went on dentistry. id almost turned a $2500 loss in may into much less. but now im still out a lot. had the loss once down to under $1000

    You might want to check again. They have daily NL tournaments for $150 entry with $20,000 guaranteed prize pool.

  2. Waking up every 1-2 hours to urinate a small amount sounds like an issue with your prostate. You DEFINITELY need to get that checked out ASAP.

  3. Bankroll management only applicable to +EV tournaments. Pot shots at vbj don't count. Kappa

  4. Tony, one month of running at a loss, is still a very good win rate. You cannot possibly go on forever without taking a loss at sometime. Think of how much poker you have played over the past month. To be down just under a $1000 for your only monthly loss is OK.

    I agree with kintsakurai, go get your prostate checked as a first precautionary check. You are hitting the age group where many men have prostate problems. There are medicines which can alleviate this problem and help regulate your urinary problem. Anxiety, which I am sure you have can also cause the apparent need for frequent urination, often resulting in just a few drops at a time.

    If you think you may have to move out of Vince's condo at the end of June, now is the time to start looking for alternative accommodation. Unfortunately for you with WSOP still on until mid July, rental accommodation may be tight. Perhaps you can do a weekly deal with the El Cortez, their rates are low and you are only a five minute walk to the Nugget poker room.

    It would be a pity if you leave town before Lightning and myself arrive, but that is your choice. Whatever you do, good luck and take care.

  5. You can worry about losses all you want but its nothing short of a miracle how long you have actually lasted playing poker and paying living expenses on your own without going completely broke. You have been at this for a long time and no longer have your safety nets. If you don't get a regular MD and your health issues all checked out you aren't gonna live much past your 60s. You can obviously grind but you will never have that great of a bankroll because you can never shake the machine thing. Most people would be broke and living in homeless shelters in your type of situation. Somehow no matter how low you get you always find a way to go on major heaters to build your roll up. If you had just grinded it out all these years and quit trying to beat the machines think how much better off your bankroll would be. If you don't have your physical health none of this even matters because eventually if you have a lot of health problems you won't be able to grind poker and then what do you do? You will never be able to retire because your bankroll is also your entire life savings and without poker you would be homeless.

  6. Why did you leave Ray's place in the first place again? You have this pattern of picking up and leaving to go BACK to the places you complained about previously.

  7. Tony:

    I saw your tweet about Israel - why do you think it's a sin to criticize policies of the Israli government? Why would it be a sin to say, "I think Israel charges too much in taxes!"? Why would it be immoral to say, "I think Israeli spends too much on welfare programs!"? Can you help us, your loyal viewers, better understand your no-tolerance policy towards Israeli governmental criticism?

    s.i.

    1. Not paid attention I wonder if the large amount of attempts of Asian spam gambling sites recently have something to do with this
