Tampa trip report

Things just arent going so well, and for the first time in a long time im down to only $16,400. this is due to the fact im still out over $800 for October in poker, (im not winning, and the entire 2017 hourly for over 2000 hours is now less than $9.75 per hour). way too much spent on traveling, motels, and prepaying my rent up til nov 17 here in tampa to cut the cost down by over $150 per week, and im still paying over $325 per week. Plus im switching rooms on friday (it wasnt all in the same hotel). But theres tons of games to choose from here, and most were not very tight. im sure it cannot be repeated but several years prior, i did win over $21 per hour here. This was at a time my roll was floating between $11,000 and $13,000 and i dont remember the exact dates. i do remember posting how much i was annoyed by certain casino policies in the old poker room.

Most of the drop was the $3000 bitcoin i bought for $275 juice, then quickly lost. the rest of the drop was more rental payments than poker losses. no live BJ losses here. very little play too, with the $25 minimums. lot of it went on Uber fees too.

i visited the dogtrack on Nebraska where the hookers hang out (the streets 1-2 miles north and south, certainly not in the room) and none of the motels on this street are safe (or have any whites residing in the rooms). the only whites u might see are the hookers, and few of those. but the games in the dogtrack were good. i briefly got $200 up then lost it all and left down $85.

the motels on hillsbourough arent much better, but i think id feel safer there, its a main city busline i used to ride often. then theyres other motels east of the casino ive never been in i need to find out weekly prices. by mid nov, im going to be really broke. i will be getting back $300 for every 75 hours of poker in october if i remember to collect. Plenty of massage parlors on hillsbourough too, for less than the $2 minute in the Hardrock.

yes some of those annoyances were the nonstop requests of does anyone want an overpriced $2 minute massage? most of us earn $10 per hour or much less on our jobs, we sure wont spend $120 per hour on this. then theres $2 chips, the person in the SB (or left of the MS straddle acting first) and long waits a lot of the time for seats.

probably a bigger annoyance tonight for 2 of their customers were a guys quad aces got beat by another quad aces with 2 minutes to go in the high hand. then 20 seconds to go, his got beat by an even better hi hand.

i got bluffed one pot, but correctly folded QQ on another big pot. at least i recovered the phone i left in the Uber 2 days ago, with the help of AKgal. im due to lose it been like 4 out of 4 ive got it back when ive lost it now.

though u cant eat at the tables, the price of burgers or chicken tenders or fries is sure cheap in the new poker room.

  1. Tony, for months you have been whinging about getting back to Shreveport as this was the Nirvana for all your big wins. When you got there you only stayed for a very short time. Why do you have this incessant desire to keep moving? Then all we read about in your blog is about how much you have wasted on Uber, other transportation, motels and expensive hotel rooms. And hookers that won't kiss on the lips.

    What do you mean that it cost you $275 juice for $3000 bitcoin? Does that mean you paid $3275 for $3000 bitcoin which you promptly lost? If so that is complete and utter insanity.

    Talk about bad money management. I have never come across another person like you, who makes the same bad mistakes over and over and over.

    So where are you going to run to after the five weeks are up in Tampa?

    1. Our Hero can not leave Tampa until he has either treated him self to a blackened grouper sandwich or an order of deep fried grouper cheeks (Preferrably at a place called Frenchie's).

  2. I will be shocked if Tony actually completes the 5 week stay. Dude likes to run when things get tough.

  3. So you basically lit $9,000 on fire in about a week, correct? This is $9,000 you cannot afford to lose. Do you see anything wrong here? Nah - you won't, keep doing what you do Tony and cry when things don't go your way. SMH

    Why We Cannot Trust the FBI http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/10/why_we_cannot_trust_the_fbi.html#ixzz4v7QFGjXH … i know one thing, pamela geller and Robert Spencer are more credible than CNN or Nytimes"

    Tony: Do you remember back in the day when "conservatives" defended American institutions like the FBI? Those days did exist. And, Geller and Spencer are both anti-muslim hate mongers. There are lots of folks for you to admire, Tony - you need not choose the worst among us.

  5. Tony, for your information, some sections of the FBI have been corrupt since the day J Edgar Hoover was in charge.
