back in toledo

ive left vegas for good now, and flew into cleveland where Ray picked me up and drove me home to sylvania OH. i really appreciate him doing this for me, but im a bit irritated he didnt hook me up with the black girl whose 20 he promised to which he wasnt interested in who spent 1 night in his house. or the 23 yr old in genoa he thinks found someone else. Plus i just discovered plenty of fish no longer lets u search for women more than 14 yrs out of your age range. i never got to be with women 20-30, when i was in my early 20s i only went with women over 30, they were much more interested in fooling around.

we've been going up to greektown every night, or one of the other rooms. i found out turtle creek is only 4 hours 19 minutes from google maps. ive still not been winning though. im down still for august, so its pretty poor news financially. the best news is he chopped the tourny 4 ways i encouraged him to enter since he thinks hes better in them, and just like flushdraw might be.

i made a few poor shoves late into the evening when tired of playing and ready to leave. i never could steal the pot. at least i know where im making errors. plus they have good BJ games here, but the min bets much too high. but a rich counter would love the deep penetration.

the biggest accomplishment was convincing both ray and lightning to meetup in IN on the majestic star pokerroom. i covered the costs of ray coming and we got to meet and eat. lightning took one photo but i dont have it of course. Lightnings blog got delayed due to a death of someone i never knew but he knew well. im interested in his koala stories unpublished too.

ive done a poor job selling bitcoin when at the lowest and buying so often when at the highest, but at least im still over $16,000 i dont know how id done had i not left vegas. ive found a good 08 stud8 mix $6-12 2 nights per week. pretty high hourly for the low sample size, but in parx its the only game i did good at winning close to $500 the one time i played.

  1. These women are young enough to be your daughters! Ray never should have said he was going to fix you up; I mean if things are not meant to happen, they will happen. You cannot force women to find you attractive. Just as you cannot force top set on a non-coordinated board to fold.

  3. Tony - you're about 50 years old. You do, at this point, need to end your fixation with women in their 20s. It's a little creepy.

    1. theres no fixation, its just i never got to spend time with them, and its best to do it when im still under 50 than over 50. of course id be glad to find any women willing to love and accept me. i think the women id best relate to with things in common would be women with very little dating experience, since i have very little also and the ONLY ones with very little would be the younger ones, therefore we would be a much better fit emotionally. they wouldnt be jaded by lots of bad experiences and sour on love or commitment and neither have i, i would think its the greatest feeling in the world.

    2. I never got to date 18 and 19 year olds. Should I go and start?

    3. Tony:

      What is it that you think a 20 year old woman would get out of dating you?

      If you would gladly accept any woman willing to love and accept you, then you need to adjust your expectations. There are women who won't be too freaked out by your transient, gambling, ASD, lifestyle.

      A woman 40 to 60, with a non-traditional bent, preferably someone with ASD, would be a good fit with you. I know you don't seem to want to date anyone w ASD, but you really should consider it - dating someone who is understanding of your experiences could really be a significant moment for you, Tony.

      Imagine if you had some loving, stable, supportive person in your life...I really don't think that option is going to exist for you in the 20 yr old pool.

    4. i do think id be best understood by someone with aspergers but only Benny was lucky enough to find them. they dont exist on normal dating sites and the ratio of men-women with it is like 99-1. the regular disabled sites are basically pretty much all physical, no mental. the girl whose under 30 is one of the few whose not completely scarred by previous relationships or burnt out yet, which is why we would have more in common

    5. Tony, you seem to forget how you have been scarred. I can't even count the number of times you have mentioned your bittterness because of claudia, brittni and ... was Sue the name of Mark's mother? Look how all that has affected you. In any relationship, both people come with their own baggage. How you are able to accept and deal with this goes a long way toward building a good relationship.

  4. Anyone watch Atypical on Netflix? Its about an 18 year old boy with autism that starts dating. It's a comedy but you will probably learn a lot about Autism.

    1. There was a show on FX called The Bridge that dealt with law enforcement in El Paso/Juarez and one of the main characters was a lady detective that had autism. It was a good show but only ran 2-3 years. It is on Hulu....

  5. LOL on your reasoning to date a young lady. BTW,the only way you can get anyone, regardless of age, to have interest in you is for you to get a normal life outside of gambling. I met you before and from briefly talking to you find you a little on the creepy side. I seriously doubt you will ever be able to find anyone to go out with you unless you give them money so as soon as you face this reality, the sooner you can move on with your life and forget about dating women.

    1. I'm not sure we need to go that far. I think Tony needn't move on from women entirely; he can simply adjust his expectations.

      Tony has some issues, as do most humans. Tony can certainly date, and has dated, women. However, him wanting to date women 20-30 years his junior is unrealistic.

      A woman in her 40's/50's/60's, who may be on the spectrum, and may enjoy a non-traditional life style, is certainly in Tony's wheel house.

    2. But he never had a woman in her 20's! Then again he's never had bull testicles or sushi either so we can start small. #rockymountainoysters

  6. As a side note. I am at a driving range right now sort of but not really watching a 60 year old gentleman and his "niece" that is dressed very sexily with pigtails and a short skirt. He keeps hitting her butt and whispering in her ear. Is this normal uncle behavior?

  7. Hi Tony. Well I finally made it home after almost 30 hours of travel and sitting around airports waiting for connecting flights. I missed one connection at Sydney because it took almost an hour and a half for my bags to be unloaded from the flight from Los Angeles.

    As usual I had a run in with the TSA in Las Vegas. I swear to God, whoever employs those people must pick the rudest and most ignorant applicants for that job. They treat all passengers with disdain and behave like little Hitlers because someone put them in a uniform and a gun on their hip they think they are untouchable. Unfortunately the majority of passengers that pass through these checkpoints meekly submit to being sexually groped and treated like criminals because they fear being off loaded if they protest at the behavior of these neanderthal Gestapo like morons.

    I just want to say a big thank you for the time we spent together during my stay in Las Vegas this time. It was great to hang out with you, and I enjoyed your company at the poker tables With the exception of one night at MGM with Lightning 36 when I went on a heater hitting several High Hands in the hourly promotion for that one evening, My luck ran cold. Fortunately BJ ran good for me, and I was able to recover most of my losses. I still ended up down just over $1100 for the 5 weeks I was in Nevada which in reality is quite acceptable for my bank roll.

    There are a few people I would like to mention who made my trip enjoyable and memorable and I would really like to thank them here. First, there was Lightning 36, who I had not seen for about four or five years. I very much appreciated his coming to Las Vegas to catch up with me during my time there. I met Stacey, from the Gold Spike for the very first time. An interesting man who had some good tales to tell when we all ate at Nine Fine Irishmen at the NY NY casino. Vegas Dave DWP gave me a fascinating insight into the life of a day trader on the stock exchange. Way beyond the ability of my feeble mind to comprehend. Alysia’s brother Solomon, a computer expert extraordinaire whose ability and knowledge of the cyber world leaves me struggling to find the correct letters to punch in on my key board.

    Most of all I want to thank my special Uber driver, personal chauffer, owner of a driverless car, karate expert, confidant and partner on the good vbj machine at Hoover Dam Lodge, wonderful lady and very good friend Alysia Chang . Without a doubt one of the nicest most genuine people I have ever met. To have a friend like Alysia who asked for nothing, but who offered her constant assistance and companionship was something I will forever be grateful to her for.

    I had a very fun filled afternoon with her and you at Hoover Dam Lodge when the 3 of us played your good VBJ machine. It was interesting to note that the three of us all won various amounts on that day. But I must confess to my dying shame that Alysia caught me Martingaling the good vbj machine from $1 to $2 to $4 until I won the bet and I stopped.

    Remember on the way back to the airport from Hoover Dam Lodge, the three of us talked about you getting your ID made acceptable. Please do this while you are with Ray. Use his assistance to guide you in what you need to do to get this sorted out, and don’t leave it till the last minute when you will end up with increased pressure and stress you do not need. Good luck with your travels wherever you go, I hope the cards fall your way and you get your roll back up to a comfortable level for you to be relaxed and happy.

    1. It was certainly great seeing you again, Koala. Knowing your travel plans well ahead of time helped make it all possible. Do you think you could help a poker player who never plans in advance? u see, it is SOMEONE we both know well, of course!

    2. It was great to finally meet you also, Koala. Hopefully my wife will be able to join us for dinner again next year when you are back in town.

    3. Thanks Koala for the kind words. Hoover Dam was to say the least, an experience. I think I will have to take Lightning on a field trip next time.

    Knew I'd be lucky in $2-5 after recovering $775 in BJ after my horrible $700 call with AK spades preflop into AA"

    Tony - how did you end up putting $700 in pre-flop here? What was the hand play and what were you thinking?

  10. Tony does think, at the table. He's cunningly able to hoard up his emotional and intellectual energy by focusing on his cell phone when not directly in a hand. Genius.
