Seattle Irish was asking me why i was back in vegas and why i left after the WSOP and Koala were gone. well u see i had $19,200 right before i took the room for 5 weeks and i wanted to not be losing ground if i was going to continue staying in vegas. by the time my 5 weeks were up, i then had less than $19,200.
i had to leave Tampa, couldnt win, games were too nitty. (since then ive been told the higher stakes arent as tight as the $1-2). i did think id only be here briefly then fly elsewhere or bus it elsewhere to los angeles to play $12-24 mix in HG. but my stats this year were lousy in stud and limit 08 and im not sure why since i used to win in those games in the 1990s. at one point shortly after playing here, i was down in poker close to $1700 for the month of october. im now happy to say im only down close to $300 for october in poker. at $9.69 per hour again which once dropped to only $9.10 (for the entire year). but this is still much much lower than practically every other year this decade. it should be from $12-20.
i still think theres good BJ to be found in vegas but ive noticed there now putting the cut card at like 6 of 8 decks instead of 7 of 8 decks. im not sure if theyre doing this for everyone in the golden gate, or just me. i've mostly won this session, lost $500 once but won $650 once and $250 once. plus over $400 on the machine in hoover dam. there mightve been one more winning session too.
so im sick of flying, or riding a bus or Uber or train. i wanted an address id be at to order things in the mail. this time ill be staying closer to the Rio than before, and for less money too. so i took a place for 1 month and ive still got over $18,600 left. so when my time is up, as long as im back over $19,200 ill feel im "ok". i just hope i dont take no big losses.
so i went out and bought $87 worth of food too, filling up the fridge, and rebuying things like water pitchers and plastic microwave containers. plus some archie comics. ill try to ask uber about getting the monthly pass. my time will end mid nov unless i renew.i wouldnt mind going to phoenix but worry i wont like the BJ there.
