poker in the nugget with the trooper plus BJ

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.

  1. How about going home to Kansas for a Thanksgiving break and see your mom for a few days?

    1. No, that would cost money, he would rather risk losing his money than spending it to see his mother/son. Not cool.

  2. "i just couldnt quit with a loss, so i made the loss much bigger."

    Ummm ... I have a great suggestion: how about setting a stop-loss limit for yourself. Gee -- why nobody has ever suggested this to you ... : o )

    1. Mods to our Hero's in this quote are the words in caps:

      "i eventually quit the game down $460 (OR INSERT A NUMBER FOR THE CURRENT LOSS), long after he left. i caught myself making 2 really bad calls (OR INSERT OBVIOUS BAD PLAYER MISTAKE). i just couldnt quit with a loss, so i made the loss much bigger."

      As L36 mentioned, the key sentence is the last sentence. If, omg IF, you had only plugged this one leak like ten years ago you might currently have a roll in the low six figures and maybe own a condo or townhouse in Vegas (like what Vince lives in). But... it is not too late to PLUG THIS LEAK NOW....

    1. That is a good idea. A lot of these people with there vlogs are beginning to get paid to host poker games in poker rooms now. Also making money off YouTube and selling hats and T-shirts.

    2. Of the 3 rooms he is legally allowed to enter, which one do you think is going to want the TBC branded game?

    3. That's a pretty easy question: The Golden Nugget poker room.

  5. Wise move riding the bus instead of taking an uber. You will not recover your roll unless you keep riding the bus.

  6. The last two comments in the previous blog post are PRICELESS just in case you missed them. PPP either needs to challenge Todd Brunson to a cage fight or a $10K headsup challenge. Or they could merge the two and fight in the cage five minutes, then play a couple of hands for poker and alternate until either the fight or the poker game is over first....

    won over $500 tonight, $200 from BJ. which means for the first time since dipping into the $15,000s, im finally back over $20,000. im up over $3500 in poker alone for the first half of november."

    Hi Tony great to see you back over 20K. You have achieved your goal. So I hope this convinces you that you can make money in Las Vegas if you stick to poker.

    I am still concerned that you continue to play blackjack way beyond your bankroll limits. I still believe that you do not bet optimally or proportionally to the count and your roll. But this has been explained to you countless times before, and your perceived reasoning for betting the way you do will probably never change.

    Well its your money and you do put in a huge number of hours, and if you do get lucky and ever get your roll back over the $45K mark, well good luck to you. You deserve a break. I know you don't want to go home and see your Son and Mother, for your own personal reasons, and I understand them. But please give them a call sometimes and let them know you are OK, and so you can check on them as well. Take care buddy.
