I've done a lot of poor decisions in the past few weeks, starting with the loss of $1700 in Biloxi at Boomtown. of course, at the time it was just normal variance in blackjack, with my big bets in with an edge. but it sure started a seriously downhill swing. i went to florida, continued to lose and pay too much in expenses, and im wondering if id done better in florida by playing nights.
the $24,900 i had in biloxi is now $15,700. thats it and ive not been this low in a year or two. i was at $19,100 after recovering $500 since prepaying the rent til Nov 17. Then i went and played in the stratosphere, thanks to Mark Selby letting me back in a place where he works. (i never went in there once i heard Mark got hired there since he threw me out of the westgates old room-brand new management in there now, all new employees, new room too) so ive played there since returning to town too. but did i ever get clobbered in the stratosphere. first day im there i won $250 high hand but left only up about $125. the next day or so later when i returned i lost $515 in the game. and i shouldve won that but they got me out early on and both times id won huge pots with ace hi flushes. so i left frustrated and then threw $400 in the buffalo machine. Vince claims u can win on it. nope u cant.
then the following night i blew $200 in the wynn poker room, then over $450 on the video POKER in the encore. then i went and bought $300 worth of bitcoin lost it too.
then i lost $800 tonight in the orleans on that horrible even money 7 hands at once video BJ. this was only after destroying a $209 win, turning it into only $4 win in the $8-16 hilow. then i dropped the last $100 in the nugget. and the night before, i lost $550 in live BJ in the golden gate where i usually win. this too was following a $200 loss from poker.
so im kind of been short tempered with others the past 2-3 days. and ive got far more books in the mail than ill ever be able to read before my rent expires.
----- the rest of this was typed up last night, --- and will add today i finally broke the ice by winning $269 in the westgate, though i was stuck most of the whole time til the very end. @dollarthrill on twitter was in there, and as he was about to sit when i was quitting (must do so immediately due to not being able to handle risking my profit) we decided to play in the stratosphere instead. i rode there with him, min bought $50, lost it to an idiot who called $50 preflop HU with 48 suited and hit it, then rebought $72 and lost it too. JJ vs AK the second time, and his seat again didnt open til i was forced to go or id lost back the whole nights profit. relaxing at home now with the $147 in profit minus Uber fees. i hope he is in there now busting them.
