cleveland trip report

well it feels good to be home without no more plane trips to deal with. i left deadwood with over $16,000 and im up about $700 since leaving. but im still about $8000 less than what i had when i was in biloxi, before the trip to florida, where i blew $3000 worth of bitcoin, before the flight to vegas, the month i spent there, and the 3 weeks i spent in deadwood where i had some bad luck on the VBJ and didnt play enough poker. Ray isnt doing so well though. lost 4 whole nights in a row, and doesnt feel too well either.

he thought going to cleveland might improve his luck, so last night we decided to check out Jacks casino. i sat in the $1-2-5 PLO8 simply because u dont find this game live very much. he later moved to the table too and i only won because i hit a flush on one big hand. most of the pots and the betting werent even that big. lots of nits playing. not like the games in foxwoods or jacksonville.

he didnt win though and was ready to go home so we left. i still like greektown the best for games where i win the easiest and dont wait nearly as long to get seated. motor city is still refusing to sit players when theyres long lists and tons of open seats simply because they want games to break so dealers can go home. MGM had just hit the BBJ when Ray walked in the room too.

right now im playing with the $70 i have on ignition, waiting for Ray to wake up in the other room. his friend Nick lives here too, but hes only home at nights. he's going thru a divorce and needed somewhere to stay.

  2. the reason to play plo 8 this week is because cleveland jack currently has a high hand promotion this week. a thousand dollars to the highest high hand every half hour. as you know, it's easier to hit with 4 cards than 2 and most of the tables will be holdem so plo8 and plo high only have a significant advantage with respect to the promotion. today is the last day of it tho so good luck

  3. If games break and dealers go home, they can’t collect take and make money. Are you SURE this is how Motor City thinks? People on a list don’t generate income. People in seats do.

    1. I think Tony mentioned this once before in a previous blog. I think it had something to do with them not having enough poker dealers to replace those that were finishing their shifts for the day.

      Have a safe and Merry Christmas everyone. My Sons and their families are coming over to our house for a Christmas BBQ. That's right a BBQ. Middle of our summer here.

    3. I have absolutely no idea how this happened. Obviously I stuffed up somehow, but I don't have a clue how I did it. Merry Christmas to you as well.

  4. Your $3,000 in Bitcoin back from October would have been worth more than $13,000 in December.

  5. Merry Christmas, Tony. I hope you're going to church Christmas Day! Like Koala, my Christmas is warm once again, though only supposed to be 75F in Melbourne. I do not miss the freezing weather nor the snow.

  6. We haven't had any reports or tweets from you for almost a week. Hope you are OK. Happy New Year to you and Ray, wherever you are Tony.

  7. Happy New Year, Tony. Forgot to tell you that I won $5600 on a Progressive Pokie (slot) machine on Christmas Day at a local pub venue. Not bad for a $1 bet on a 5c machine. I put the cheque in my sock in honour of you! Stay warm.
