i really would like out of vegas, but i shouldnt until my tooth is taken care of. what a horrible time for it to come up, right in california while im down to one of the lower points of the last few years. of course at that time it wasnt nearly as low as it is now (barely over $12,000) at the time it first started bothering me i still had almost $17,000.
Vince is now back from Reno and promised to take me to see the dentist on Friday, and if he could do it earlier, would probably be best. tonight he wanted to play stud hilow at samstown, and i didnt think the game would go but briefly we had 6 of us playing though most of the time not nearly this many. of course the $1 ante killed me since its high for stud and i mostly played stud without an ante in the early, mid and late 1990s. only the california players or high stakes players were used to playing with antes. but i left the game pissed while the others were still playing with only $20 left of my $100, saying i had to get out of there. hope it didnt embarrass Vince. i took the bus downtown. most of the money was lost on one big pot where i had AA and couldnt fold it as the lady who called my $12 bet on 3rd street had a low spade showing, caught the 10 of spades on 4th, an ace on 5th, i started checking, she started betting, and then got a low spades on 6th, i shouldve just folded. she had exactly what i thought, 3 low spades first 3 and made both the flush and the low by the end.
he wanted me to post it on twitter (and so did the floorman since theyre trying to do the game every Monday night and they need the players) but i was concerned MIB would see it and show up while i was there, so i didnt.
so i took the bus to the el cortez and the night got worse from there. i shouldve stayed on the bus to the nugget and played poker. but i felt like playing some VBJ. for a while all was well, in fact i recovered the loss at sams town. i kept playing when i shouldnt of however, partly annoyed by the 2 hookers or strippers or fremont street partly nude performers or maybe party pit dancers. i couldnt tell but the way they were dressed and how this girl was showing one guy her ass asking if he liked it and the way the girl with her was talking on the phone how she made $300 working and showing off a black guys picture with her cell to the whole casino she was live chatting with with a very annoying voice for 30 minutes or so, i was curious if she knew the 2 she was sitting next to. they came and sat at a machine close to a black guy and his wife or mother a bit older than the 2 girls were. but to see her bragging about making so much money and saying on the phone she is still working, set me on tilt because its so unfair how people doing something immoral to earn the money, (not sure what exactly) get paid so much better than people who do hard work for low pay. and how men cant earn that type of money.
so i played a long long time and eventually the big loss came up and i left with only $700 out of $2300 i came in the casino with. this is why carrying too much cash on me is horrible and why when leaving the wynn with $1169, i only took $369 of it home with me and put the rest in the box i originally went into the wynn to close out.
so i left the el c with $700 and took an uber to the wynn. and sat right down in the $1-3 and of course lost a big pot right off. had AA and bet $10, got reraised to $40 by a guy with well over $1000, and i just shoved my $110 buyin, what i still had which was close to all of it. flop comes KQT which i considered horrible seeing i put him on a big pair (which is what he had, JJ) turn comes A so i think maybe i am good. river blank. i knew he couldnt have one jack there unless he had two.
the flop scared me more than the turn since my read was he had a big pair. and i rebought, and at one point after moving to $2-5 when the $1-3 broke and still needed another addon, i was down to the final $300. i eventually somehow came back to $1169 after winning several hands, some of which i didnt expect. i decided to go and not try to double one more time to get even. so i won $460 in the wynn poker room, and more than that in the $2-5 game. too bad i played BJ, or id had a good night in spite of the $80 loss in samstown had i only played poker tonight.
although the 2 women into black guys and possibly bisexual too turned me off being so well paid, and too much tattoos and bling on them, i did see one girl in there who caught my eye who looked really broke and like she was looking for money or something. and i didnt see anyone with her. often in there i see panhandlers and usually they annoy me because its either a girl with a black guy or a guy, or someone with an attitude. but this girl i didnt see her panhandle no one, just looked like she was looking for money. now 2 other people they did ask for money. el cortez is full of them and i see the same ones get thrown out often. but this girl was very short and looked like she would really appreciate the help even if only $5.
i feel good knowing my laundry got done yesterday before i went for a ride with herbie to help him in some advantage play he gave me $50 out of it which i desperately needed or id not wanted to go for a ride in his car. but im in really bad shape. im sure when my tooth is fixed ill too feel a bit less stressed. of course once its paid, ill barely have $11,000 it is going to be very tough not to go below $10,000 and i thought i never would again. and my room ends on april 23 which isnt that far off now.
