what happened to the 15 winning sessions in a row?

I've noticed patterns lot while playing poker. seems both winning sessions, (and losing sessions) all come in streaks. Since i moved in here (must leave on July 28th) i needed to win at least enough to get my $17,100 i was down to after moving in back to $19,200 so i wouldnt lose ground if i tried to see if i could stay longer. instead im down to $15,600. The only bright side is i won $3500 in poker for the month of June. (july isnt out of the hole yet). Since i only track poker cash games, not tourneys since it would not work right mixed together, i really won like $600-700 less in June. normally i never play any, so no need to track them. this of course doesnt include BJ wins or losses either, nor should it.

Is seeing lightning, Koala, and other friends worth thousands of dollars which i desperately need for my physical health, other important needs, etc? i dont think so, i need to go back to Ray's house. its embarrassing to admit im too broke to afford $420 per week in housing when u break it down to the week. I'm not even convinced im taking in enough income to afford housing at all, even at the rate of $200 per week.

its a good thing i won those 15 times in a row, or id never got up to $19,200 before i spent the money on housing, then started losing on poker or BJ. (1800 on BJ, $400 of which has been recovered since on better types of BJ-live instead of a machine which shuffles every hand.) i've been told the sugarhouse real money website deals out 20% of the cards before they shuffle, not sure who could verify this.

i need someone in the MD live area to pick up $300 worth of free play spread out in $30 installments multiple times in the July period. and to give me a fair price too, im going broke here. the st louis offers i cant do without doing it myself since they involve the tables and i never returned there, but its for bigger amounts. $125 16 times per month. not sure if ill get it for July since i never went back.

the final hand tonight before i went home to cook the noodles i had 88. id been going from getting out of the hole to being up $90 (was in the game for $681) and my hours were getting close to 9-10 hours so i felt like retiring. one asian guy whose been losing and rebuying preflop raises to $12, i called with one other. flop comes 874 with 2 clubs, one spade. i see him look at the flop closely when i bet $30 so im wondering if hes drawing. turn comes J of spades. now theres 2 flush draws. he bets $30, and though i know he couldve raised preflop with JJ, i didnt think he was checking a pair on the flop, and i thought if he did have 9-10 or 5-6, both of which i felt werent nearly as likely as multiple other drawing hands, i knew i wasnt folding or letting him draw cheap, leaving me with a tougher river decision. plus he was loose. so i shoved over $300 to put him all in. he looks the board over real close like he might be overlooking something then calls with 9-10 and i missed the boat. no matter what u say, i need to win a big pot and go, im not going to only call and fear the monsters under the bed syndrome.

im sure lightning and Rob will do a better writeup than me of the game in planet H the other day, and me and lightning played there more than once, including the nugget too with DWP. i will say  Lightning cracked my aa with kk on the river when it went allin preflop for close to $500. i didnt go play slots or BJ that day instead me and lightning went to eat. maybe lightning will tell u about the deaf uber driver. me im lazy and anxious to finish this post. today went home too without playing anything but poker. i did sell $11 worth of foreign currency though, to slightly lower the loss.

cooldave seen most of the beats i took early on in the nugget, perhaps he can describe them i remember the ones later in the night long after he left easier. i think one of the early ones i had qq vs kk and one i turned nut flush draw, top pair top kicker she had kk too i had aq and i think she was the BF of the other guy, they all left to go play $2-5 cooldave said he was in the tourney with him and he is loose. i'm in such a hurry to get this post done and over with the least amount of work (unlike the trooper who prefers the most work possible) im keeping this short for once.

    2. So Tony why sell $100. worth of Hong Kong money for $11. couldn't you have exchanged for U.S. currency at any of the casnio cages they have set up for their guest?

    4. If anyone from US come up to a casino in Vancouver, do not exchange you US$ at the casino cage. They give terrible exchange rate.

  2. Tony, you don't need to wait around for me and Lightning to get to town if you want to leave. I don't get there for another week and I don't want to be part of the blame if you drop another shitload of your roll waiting around. I've said all along, if your are there that's fine, if not I think I will survive.

    The crazy part is that your rent is paid up for nearly four week, so you don't have to worry about it. It's not an expense you have to come up with every week. But maybe you can get a refund if you leave early, and you can go ahead and waste more money heading back to Ray or wherever the Rainbow shines brightest.

  3. For the record, Trooper doesn't prefer the most work possible; he prefers the best product possible. Unlike you, he edits, edits, edits. You are the spelling champ on Lyons, KS and yet I cannot keep track of how often you have misspelled words or utilized the wrong grammar or syntax in your writing. Don't even begin to compare yourself to him. He takes the time to make a plan for his actions and you are too scattered to do anything but made negative remarks about planning. I agree with Koala; if you feel staying in Vegas will make you lose more of your precious roll, LEAVE. Go to where the games are better and dem machines are good...

  4. Hi TBC I do not think most people understand that with Asperger syndrome it is hard to make consistent decisions. Hence your problems taking care of your health, or where you will be living month to month. Your selection of games. I refer to black jack. Even some of your poker selections are questionable. I think people do not understand how hard it is for you period. Unfortunately these are the cards you were dealt. ( pun intended ) Keep grinding TBC

    3. Tony,

      You mentioned on twitter you wish the interview was longer. Why don't you create a new blog post to add anything you didn't say?

    OK Tony, this has come straight out of left field and I am dying to know why you are thinking of emigrating to Poland. Please explain.
