OUT OF TAMPA

 Seattle Irish was right and im not going to be anywhere within 1000 miles of Tampa. maybe he can also tell me the meaning of my weird dream last night in which i was shoveling peoples snow for their christmas gift since i didnt have no money.

i felt like my table was filled with nothing but assholes in the hardrock this evening. 3 different people bet me off hands then showed a stone cold bluff, and 2 other times when i called i was shown the nuts. once with their aa preflop against my KK, and one other hand ive forgot. i wonder how many only played this way cause they knew my blog/twitter?

the reservation i managed to get out of by telling a major lie without any charges got canceled yesterday and i seriously thought last night i wish i couldve rebooked it for the same price. yes it wouldve cost me over $2500 for the next 5 weeks but upon checkout i wouldve got back $875 so it wouldve only ended up being like $1600. which isnt too bad per week for a better hotel. if i wouldve rebooked normally it wouldve been like $1000 more. this is why i prebooked it before the offer expired.

yes last night i won close to $165, biggest win here. im still out about $900 in poker for october. but today the losing was nonstop and i shouldve followed seattle irish advice to move tables. horribly tight most of the time except for those bluffs. i finally couldnt take it no more and i wouldve done a lot of things to get permanently banned or have the police called had i not quietly grabbed my chips and cashed out.

so i went straight to a christian book store picked out a book for $13 to read on the plane and then took Uber to the airport. bought a ticket for $83.88 and left. i will still have a roll of about $18,400 since i got the other reservation canceled without charged.

i just need to be where i wont be charged $400-500 per week to live but $150-300. plus theres no BJ here unless u can wong in and out of $25 shoes.

  1. You can't recoup playing blackjack. This is where the misery REALLY starts. Play poker, recoup, & end the year grinding poker. Blackjack will be your ruin. Blackjack won't solve your roll loss, it's how you got as low as you are. You once had....40k? What happened? Try and remember. Don't forget. Play poker, take your lumps. Play more poker. Play only poker.

  3. "i felt like my table was filled with nothing but assholes in the hardrock this evening. 3 different people bet me off hands then showed a stone cold bluff,"

    Interesting that you should say this Tony, how many times have you shown the bluff and chortled about it after the other guy folded. Just call it a bit of asshole revenge.

    So why did you run away from Tampa, after spending so much to get there? Where are you now, or do we have to play this stupid hide and seek game you have played so often before? Or is everything you have posted in the last two blogs been a complete lie. You have done that before as well.

    Like I said in the last blog, you whinged and whined for months about Shreveport being the only place you could win at,yet you only stayed there a few days. Why?

    "i just need to be where i wont be charged $400-500 per week to live but $150-300. plus theres no BJ here unless u can wong in and out of $25 shoes."

    Again you have been down that road many times before, but wherever you go and find cheap accommodation, it is always not in a safe area for you.

    1. since returning, i was briefly winning over $375 on this BJ machine here at hoover dam. then a shoe came up where the count went to plus 11 up to plus 15 then plus 14. i lost a ton and left it stuck $900. i was betting like 2% of my roll per hand or slightly more. which is the right amount u should bet with this edge according to kelly, but i still feel im overbetting. too bad Benny dustin, the chaperone and cutter dont still read these posts.

    2. Most likely God's way of punishing you for lying to the hotel owner to get out of your rental commitment.

  5. Well you could be in worse places than the casino near Hoover dam. U do know you like that place, and it has one of your good vbj machines. But remember what we talked about last time we were there together. When the count is good, you still need to make sure you don't lose your head betting way above your roll percentage. Or else you could lose your roll in a matter of minutes.

    i dont have the roll for live tables especially not as poor as vegas is for good BJ at the low stakes with 3-2 payouts without using CSM's. theres plenty of better cities. so im out here in hoover dam lodge on the Video BJ. the ONLY good one left which doesnt shuffle every hand $1 minimum instead of $5 and shows u when they shuffle. plus the random bonuses which pop up add like 0.5% using your slot card. so its better for me than live tables. i wouldve gone to deadwood but i cannot get my contacts up there to verify for me if their new dealers angels machine in the gold dust likewise shows when it shuffles. its NOT the type of question u would wish to draw managements attention to over the telephone.

    so im stuck over $1000 and waiting for another good running count of plus 10 or so (shuffles every 80 cards out of 4 decks at only 38%) so i can bet really huge and hopefully recover some losses, or else ill give it up and go play live poker, where most of my income comes from, more so than BJ.

    the reason ive been losing is i cant ever get all 5 spots to myself, except for like 2am to 9am. but its sure a lot more empty here than in vegas, kind of like the old river palms in laughlin, where my friend Cutter (Jason) used to like to go. i keep waiting for it to empty out. sure u can back bet others but not if they play stupidly. and u know it 95% of them do.

    which is why the BJ games in vegas are so poor. Poor games wouldnt be offered if the players wouldnt sit in them. if no one played sucker slots, those wouldnt be offered either, and VP paytables would be better. no more annoying side bets which slow the live games down either, if no one bet them.

    now ive hated drunks my whole life. my father used to drink and he beat my mom when he did, and mom taught me never to she was a christian, and i never have and im 48 now. they laugh when losing at BJ, even more so than when theyre winning and they laugh when i lose due to the dealer drawing 21 too. and this idiot is misplaying every hand and seriously misplaying, doubling on 12, hitting 15 against 5, etc. standing 77 against 3.

    and every time i see a BJ, either him or the other guy gets it. of course they would rather they get it, theyre only betting $1. and some of my bets, (not all of course, usually the count is negative) but some were 2 spots of $100. and the sad thing is theyre such stupid idiots u cant even back bet them to take advantage of the wonderful luck theyre having getting dealt such better hands than u are. which is why i would prefer to play here with other pros. and then he says how much better the game is with more people? little does he know.

    1. Aruze updated their machines long ago. That shuffle animation doesn't correspond to anything.

  8. You are in that downward spiral caused by your worries about money. You are impatient with poker because you can't win fast enough. You turn to the machines so you can win faster, if you win. If you lose it makes you make more rash decisions and spin downward faster. If you win, at best, you reach some place you have decided to call 'even' in your head and you still fret over getting 'ahead'. You are where you are, you can't change the past. Let it go. Take a day off. Go back to the poker table determined to play the best poker you know how. Stop letting the score keeping mess with your head.

  9. Tony:

    Help us, your devoted readers, gain some insight into your thought process:

    You left Vegas for a reason, what was it?
    You paid a lot of money to go somewhere other then Vegas, why?
    You paid a lot of money to come back to Vegas, why?

    I realize all of that could be moot, because you could be playing one of your hiding games and none of that travel actually happened. However, if it did happen, can you help us understand why?

    thanks,

    s.i.

    1. Cost almost nothing to return to Vegas $29 plus bags. Anywhere else would've cost more. Wanted to play VBJ here

    2. Tony:

      Your response answered one of the three questions. Can you respond to this one:

      "You left Vegas for a reason, what was it?"

      I'm particularly cuious about your rationale for leaving. As you've seen from your board, a lot of people phrase it as you "running away from your problems", and they (including me) are always puzzeled about what makes your flight instinct kick in. Can you tell us why you frequently choose to "must leave immediately"?

      Also, your twitter feed does not dissapoint:

      "tony bigcharles‏ @sevencard2003 1h1 hour ago

      Won $600 BJ last night in golden gate then got 3 free nights. Had to give a lesbian $5 to sit out one when I bet 3 spots of $350 each"

      How did you know she was a lesbian? How did the conversation go regarding asking her to leave/sit out?

      s.i.

  10. She probably had short hair, to paraphrase an old Walking Dead character.
