a technical computer question.

before i tell u of how much better than average im doing this January (last years January i won an awful lot too, but the difference was last year it came from BJ, (not poker) and then in February in reno it all got given back due to Blackjack too.) but this year, im up over $3500 from poker in January and over $26 per hour, more than double last years hourly of $10.62. and this month isnt even finished yet.

but first ive got a complaint. and im hoping that VOOK or someone else in his line of work knows the solution. i came home, to a computer which was asking me if i wanted to restart it now. and usually this takes very little time so i clicked yes. IT TOOK WAY MORE THAN 25 minutes,. and rebooted multiple times.

which is annoying when u need to not forget something u immediately wish to type. never in my life has it remotely took this long on any type of needed auto updates. here is the question. why wont it just do it--without me needing to be on the computer using it to click "yes"? how do i fix it, so in the future it will do it without me needing to be on the computer to do it? then i couldve returned home with everything being done for me when i was gone.

Other than that--my new computer works rather well. of course, when i watch youtube music or speeches of others, it still wont play them loud enough, even when on maximum volume, so maybe im missing a way to increase the volume i dont know of or understand.

unlike last year, im winning in the wynn, and ive got almost $1000 more than i came to town with. which is really something when u consider i paid up my rent. and my food, etc. so in the first week or so ive been back in vegas, ive won well over $2500. not quite all from poker, but ive been doing good about staying away from risking money in BJ. some of it was on some slots.

the moose tourney made the games in the nugget good when i first got to town, and as always the game in the middle of the night in the stratosphere is much looser than most. so was the vlogger game in the westgate $2-5 i attended albeit much too late. But the most unique game i played in was tonights game in the wynn, (its really the Encore now) with Jacob Israel Brundage.

theres an article on him in which he left a large sum of money in an Uber, and got it returned to him when he was in the WSOP. and when i first sat in the game, id realized id finally met someone more odd than I. i had the seat next to him, (and a seat change button). he waved his arms around wildly, with nonstop chatter, so it wasnt the best seat. what stood out, and i would like to know from guys who've been at his table before if he is like this also when hes in the bigger limit games than our $1-3 NL wynn table is if he is the same way at the tables. he wasnt exactly loose, but he sure gave away a lot of money. like $5-10 to the dealer every 2-3 minutes nonstop. and to staff tossing it around the room, the cocktail waitress, etc. and putting the money into the pot kind of roughly. he never would be quiet or stop talking with the women in the game.

he is the son of Pentecostal preachers, no idea of his current religious beliefs. but he knows who Jack Van Impe is, and could quote all the books of the Bible better than i could. and early on, he accidently knocked over my stack of chips, then tossed me $15 and said he was sorry for knocking them on the floor. i thanked him and told him i could use the money, then he tossed me another $15 or so. by the time he finally quit the game id gotten over $70 from him. but this wasnt near as much as the dealers were getting. and when the extremely good looking young Asian girl whose a regular on his immediate right went away from the table a few minutes with a very short stack, he secretely added a few $5 chips to hers. i dont think she ever found out.

i told everyone i didnt want to leave til i had $300 and was going to leave as soon as i did, but it wasnt til after he left i finally had $309, when i won a decent pot, and of course then i left considering my night over, and happy with my profit since i never had added on from my original $120 buyin. he was a bit shocked by some of my folds preflop including 10-10 when an asian guy repopped the $6 straddle to $40. i think he thought i was much nittier than i really am, when the truth is i bluff a lot due to my image. an awful lot of people tend to get this image of me. i think a much better image would be a picture of a donkey.

im curious to know what others might remember of games they played with him in. also if u google search him, u find out he is a member of the republican party in florida. i think a lot of people wouldnt like the fact florida is telling absolute strangers how people vote who register in florida. this needs to be changed. votes should be kept private for someday it will be needed for their personal safety if the democrats gain power.

  1. 1. Sounds like me might be bipolar, in a manic phase. 2. Florida isn't telling anybody how anybody voted. In fact, no state knows how any individual voted. You can voluntarily register as a member of a party, but that doesn't mean you do or must vote that way. (In some states it controls whether you can vote in primaries.)

    1. i have a feeling Grump meant to say "he" instead of "me". yes but florida shouldnt be telling the whole world which party someone is registered with. peoples lives could be at big time risk if groups like Antifa could look up this info

    2. 1. Yes. Typo. 2. Florida is hardly unique in that. My guess is that party registration is public information in most, if not all, states. It certainly is in North Carolina. Of course, people can choose to register to vote without listing themselves as a member of any party. It's voluntary disclosure (though, as I said, in some states you won't be able to vote in a party's primary election if you're not officially registered as affiliated).

  3. Tony, you will either need external speakers or headphones for your computer. Most laptops do not go loud enough with just the speakers that are built in.

    1. Just choose some earbuds that have a small carrying case of some sort. If you end up just stuffing them into your pocket or your laptop bag they will get grundgy and dirty to the point they will be too foul to use.

  4. Hanger 18 has got it right Tony, even a cheap set of ear plugs will make a huge difference to your sound. Should only cost you a couple of bucks.

    Great to hear you are on a winning streak at the moment. But you still need to tell us why you did a runner from Detroit and left all you belongings behind. Still too early for me to start planning road trips or accommodation for my return trip to the USA in late July for 5 weeks. But a couple of States I really want to see are Colorado and South Dakota. I was fascinated by your time in Rapid City last year and the surrounding areas. Are there any casinos in Colorado?

    1. Koala: I would suggest the Blackhawk area which has several various sized casinos and is about an hour west of Denver. It has been a few years since I have been there but I think a newer hotel/casino called the AmeriStar Black Hawk that opened up a few years ago. There is a hippy town a bit further north of Blackhawk called Nederland you would have to check out. Half hour drive to get there and an hour to get back if you take the alternative route back to Blackhawk.

    2. Thanks for the info Lester. As a teenager of the 60s, I should fit right in with the Hippies in Nederland. I've still got some old hippie clothes somewhere. Oh shoot, I just remembered my 19 and 18 year old granddaughters stole them from me.

    3. i would love to visit CO myself but theres nowhere to stay on fridays and saturdays, but maybe if i was with koala and he had a car with him, i could find a place outside of blackhawk

    4. Looks like a round trip is either $20 or $25 and from the Arvada location looks to run on an hourly basis except during inclement weather they cut back the route by just under half. The buses are modern and have WIFI.

    5. I'm planning a snowboarding trip to Colorado. I could get you to Breckenridge and then you could find a bus to Blackhawk...

  5. "he was a bit shocked by some of my folds preflop" How did he know what you were folding pre-flop? Why would tell people what you are folding pre-flop?

  6. Tony:

    I particularly enjoyed this tweet of yours. I'm not certain why it brought me so much joy...

    when i woke up last night, i google searched the phrase "put some seed in your discourse". this phrase dont seem to exist, does anyone have the definition of this phrase? the only reason i ask is i dreamed Jesus was saying it to me.

  8. Little late on this one but...
    Your new laptop appears to be working exactly as designed. Regular updates are critical to maintain security and performance. As someone noted above you can defer or reschedule them for overnight but remember to leave it powered up.

    Don't know if I can believe this Tony. You have cried wolf so many times before. You lie so often. But if it is true then it is God's way of punishing you for not telling us why you ran away from Detroit and left all your stuff behind.

    The big question now is if it is true, where do you run to next?

  10. Saw you had a huge loss last night - about 20% of your life-roll, chasing a poker loss with poor machine play. Sorry to hear that, Tony. Would be great for you if you stopped chasing lost money.

    Also, do you track how you do in mix games? I don't know that I've ever seen you post a win at 20-40 mix.

    s.i.
