u cant win if u play in the wynn

     Sitting at home cooking food and eating it up in preparation to finish up and be ready to move out of town on the 28th of July. I thought i might wish to remain in town longer since i now have a safe deposit box, but its just too damned difficult to win in the Encore poker room. im not sure why but this is a common opinion among most players of the wynn being more difficult. they do have loose foreignors coming in dumping off $500 or so in the $1-3 but for some reason its not easy like the $1-3 NL in shreveport is. most of the same players u recognize everyday. at first i was winning in there, then 3 days all in a row i lost over $350, over $625 and over $800. so today i went back to the nugget.

it didnt work too well, i never got up more than $1, and eventually lost $181. no one bought in over $300 on the front table, (very unusual) and i left to go play BJ in the golden gate. considering i lost over $750 in the nugget live BJ table the day before, i know the golden gate offers the better BJ game if u count as opposed to playing basic strategy.

none of the BJ tables were empty, (wrong time of day) but the closest table to being empty was $10 instead of $5 and contained only 1 young black girl betting $25, with another immodestly dressed black girl beside her and it was obvious they were a gay couple. and that they both were rich. now normally i wouldnt play here, (although RobVP would). she also smoked, but at least she sat in the end seat and not a middle seat, giving u the chance to sit far from her. and always betting the annoying sucker side bet (which means u win if the dealer has an ace--side bet, not your hand) plus other possibilities. i dont like bets which cause the players to root for the dealer to get BJ or any card other than 5 or 6. im rooting for the dealer to have 5 or 6 up every single hand.

Plus she took her double downs face down every time, which is unfriendly to the other players also, because it deprives them of info to help them play correctly. she misplayed lots of hands one which caused the dealer to not bust, but as soon as i went to 2 spots, then when she lost she told the girl with her, "this is why i like to play by myself". i told her how much i preferred this too, but its the only game which wasnt crowded.

like my going to 2 spots would be the sole reason shes not winning. lucky for me when i got my bet up to 2 hands of $150 i finally won both and when i left to return to the nugget poker room, i was no longer down $181, but up $33.

ended up in the same game and the drunk on my left was gathering a huge pile, cracking people with JK suited for huge pots just like he did right before i left. he had well over $700. earlier no one had much over $300. i bought in $120, and soon had it up to $505. shouldve left then but i didnt til it dropped to $349, but i then wised up and quit. i should do laundry too but im tired and dont feel up to it. 3 shirts left.

yesterday i built up the right image by making it $125 preflop with 7-2 off (showed it) and picked up 4-5 peoples $15 preflop raise or call. but i couldnt get it to pay off for me. i lost BIG yesterday. my hourly is $8 this month, early on it was $22. last month the hourly was $15. this entire yaer the hourly is $10 only.

  1. Maybe u can't win at Wynn, but I did. So maybe only donkeys can win there? Of course, I also didn't show my cards and talk about how I played hands, u see.

    1. The 7-2off move was brilliant regardless of how much L36 sez otherwise. You obviously knew the odds to get 4-5 suckers ALL to fold instead of putting $125 into a $185 to $200 pot was in your favor. My mathbot tool shows getting four suckers to fold was a 48% probability and getting five suckers to fold was a 47% probability.

  2. Well if you are going to leave town on the 28th, I guess I won't get to take you to that good vbj machine you keep talking about out near Lake Mead somewhere when I get back to Las Vegas on Sunday. Maybe you should run away to there for a few days. Cheaper than running away to Shreveport. So you have three losing sessions and decide you cant win at Wynn. So much for the 40 hours you put in there to get the Safe deposit box.

    How many times do you get 3oo to 500 in front and then lose it. I have heard you say so many times, "I should have left." But you never do because you are not satisfied. You are greedy, and you will never learn.

    Now a word of warning Tony, you gotta watch out for us foreignors, and dem black lesbian girls, especially the rich ones. They gonna fuck you up every time.

  3. I lost track of the number of points of stupidity in this post. I think I will just sit here shaking my head.

    Seriously, if your game is bad in one town is it going to be better in another?

    3. Okay where are the good games, Tony? Obviously people shoving their entire stack with J9 is not your definition of a good game so it's not here.

  5. The BJ betting is of course just degenning. What edge do you really have in these short sessions, no scouting for deck penetration, and the variance is huge for your life bankroll. I once lost 19 hands in a row (most I won in a row was 16), don't think it can't happen. You should be playing in the casino only for comp advantages, the martingaling will have you back to <1000.00 sooner or later.

    1. scouting isnt needed i already know ALL of the tables in the golden gate (only decent BJ game downtown) deal out 7 of 8 decks. u wont get no better penetraition. variance wouldnt be huge if i just would keep my bets small.

    2. When we were in the Golden Gate a couple of weeks ago, you told me not to mention the deep penetration while I was near the table. I didn't, but you go and tell the whole world in your blog. Nice one.

    3. sure its fine to tell the blog readers, but not the employees working there while playing

    4. Someone needs to explain to Tony how we are in the the Information Age. Dissemination of information can happen in very unexpected and unwelcome ways.

      Delete
    5. This revelation is particularly amazing given the fact that Tony thinks someone is reading his blog in every new city or casino he travels to.

  6. Whoops. Well fortunately, he's leaving town anyway.

  7. If you had lost your two hands of 150 each, how much would the next bets have been? On one bad night you can and have chased away thousands. Your bankroll going to zero is catastrophic, there are card counters who have bad runs for months sometimes, your martingaling is making your small edge subject to short term bad luck (ever lost with pocket aces?).

    1. The answer of course u see would have been two hands of $300 each. And of course if TBC was counting, then by this time any relationship to the count has gone out the window in a desperate attempt to get even.

    2. 2x $300 would have been a mild degen episode for our Hero. I am pretty sure there is a history of 2x bets over $1000 per spot that out Hero has previously bet to get unstuck for the day.

  8. Not to mention in this town if you get caught card counting well you can just add whatever Casino you might be in to the list that you will be banned from
