well my time in vegas will soon come to an end, hard to believe most of the 5 weeks are gone already. lightning has came and gone, and Koala is still here for a brief while longer. when he first came to town, we played much more poker together than he is doing now. i still sleep weird hours much different from day to day, plus i always need to leave the game immediately if im giving back too much of a decent win. been playing more in the wynn lately, since i got me a safety deposit box. and im glad im back to being just over $18,000. nice to no longer need to carry cash on me. im home now updating the blog and cooking eggs.
Bitcoin is dropping like a rock, so the $190 i had left online i took off the BJ site and left only $20. and shipped it back to the bank, which is what finally put me back over $18,000. since its only going to go down til the fork problems coming up in august get resolved, its best to stay completely clear of it til then.
Koala and i played in the nugget once, the wynn once, and planet H twice. soon he will go to reno/tahoe for 1 week or so, then return. he keeps losing BIG in poker, then recovering the money in BJ. he isnt counting though, he increased his bet in the golden gate from $75 to $100 when it was minus 11. i started out very bad, out $324 that day, and so did he. but he recovered, the shoe got good, then i finished the shoe by myself and ended up winning over $150. briefly the shoe was plus 21. they dealt out 7 whole decks or more out of 8.
i was lucky to recover some of my poker loss in Planet H on the big split VP the other night after i left or id be $250 worse off now.
when i posted on twitter the other day to @onechiquita (alysia chang) that money was more valuable than anything else, i meant that without it u cant survive. u sleep outdoors instead of indoors when u are without it. u cannot eat. u cannot find relationships either, u are under way too much stress to. yes the love of 1 good woman who will stick with u for life is very important and means more than anything in the world. but without $ u wont find it. and she didnt mention a wife or girlfriend. she said family and friends, which are nice to have, but lower down the list. many marriages have been ruined because people put their family or friends over their wives and girlfriends. i'm the ONLY man who puts my girl first, i visited sue every day in the state mental hospital when age 19-21 unless i was out of town. even when homeless and needing to spend the entire day panhandling to come up with money for a shitty rooming house or the shelter i lived in sometimes. but i never missed seeing the girl who i loved and the ONLY girl to ever tell me she loved me when her judge wouldnt let her see me for a while due to her running away. and she did til she took up with a black guy in the institution the time she didnt want me to go to iowa/st louis for over 1 month. he later got shot by the police like 2-3 yrs later.
when i knew lorna and britni in my pokerstars days of 2002-2009 then again i wasted money trying to find love, putting their needs first, or at least i felt like i was. maybe not their true needs, but their money needs. though Britni would get mad and say i got her to spend too much time on poker and i think she later gave poker up for good. ending online in the US did this.
so to AC, yes the love of a good woman is number 1, but without $$ u will never get this. first u need to be able to survive and care for yourself or they wont want u. this takes $.. which is why i say $ is over all else. either this or u need to be good looking and the only women who ever considered me good looking were like before i was 21. (a few women i had sex with before i met sue or around the same time). i wish i had the picture of my newspaper with my picture in it while this age.
wonder how many of my readers seen the video interview of me Pure aggression did which i talked of in the comments section of the previous blog entry?
