i just got home after dropping $3000 on the video BJ machine. now lets try to look at the good side of things. nobody of course ever came by to sit, here in deadwood if u lose its not due to the fault of other players. its just bad luck.
i had $21,107 when i left my room, and $18,200 when i returned. but here is the proper way to look at things. when i left vegas i had $16,900 and arrived with $16,800 in deadwood. then i went and collected my free play in the silverado.
after doing so i had $18,200 on me that evening. i think i won some playing poker that day too, but not too much. so im not one dime worse off than i was after id picked that up.
and yet ive accomplished all of this. (truth is, id won close to $4000 on that VBJ before i lost). i paid my rent thru dec 20. i sent my family their christmas gifts. i ordered both a birth certificate and a consuelar report of birth. i've got to fix it so i can play online poker from my room though, its boring as hell when theres no poker, and i keep wanting to sleep between 5pm to 11pm when theres more likely to be games.
i dont think i should be upset i came here, ive done some things which need done, but i know i cannot drop another big chunk. got to bet less. once i got stuck well over $500 i started betting more than i shouldve before i shouldve. the last $1000 was lost playing without patience to wait. its really bugging me the lack of poker games in this town except 3-12 pm wed-saturday.
