well i havent played much but poker ever since i dropped down in the $15,000s. i guess thats one of the main reasons ive come back to just over $18,000. thank God i didnt have the big drop tonight, had too much in the game, but recovered my $460 earlier loss and eventually went home up $53 for the night.
the trooper was in my game for 2-3 hours earlier and hardly played a hand except for the poker grump 2-4 hand, where he flopped the wheel, and busted me when i shoved the nut flush draw. i expected 2 callers or more, but only he called. i thought id get better odds. i wasnt the preflop raiser and about 5 of us seen the flop for $12. i eventually quit the game down $460, long after he left. i caught myself making 2 really bad calls. i just couldnt quit with a loss, so i made the loss much bigger.
went to play some BJ, took $2500 out of the money behind the cage. seldom could raise my bet, so i bet quite low. never was down more than $500 nor up over $150. never saw any good plus counts except like 5 hands out of 200. i was just lucky in that i won a few key hands with doubles and splits. i wouldve won more were it not for my 45 minute massage at the table.
i was lucky in the golden gate too the day before. won over $150, and the other 3 off duty plaza dealers in the game were tipping so much the dealer colored up $150 in tips that hour too. there were like 10 of them off duty employees, most sitting in the bar. i dont think this bar has hookers. like the fremont bar, its just employees sitting.
but ive not played much BJ lately no more VBJ, or bitcoin BJ after those big losses. the only good VBJ in this area is so far outside boulder city its almost $40 to get there.
ive been using the bus more lately too, since uber isnt giving me discounts or lyft. and im doing a better job of waking up later, and going to sleep later.
when i returned to the $1-2 NL i brought the whole $2525 i left the BJ table with from my $2500 buyin. i eventually cashed out $3013. but i was down to $2250+ once. i won 2 key hands, one by sucking out. stole close to 3 smaller pots.
still wondering what will happen by nov 17 checkout, my time is rapidly running out. it will be quite difficult to be back over the $19,200 needed every time rent is up.
