Trip report Vegas part 4/ week 2
so i extended my trip 'cuz:
1] i run like every God in mythology rolled into one.
2] I can do it indefinately on Southwest, postponing my reservation over and over again, with no penalty.
3] the Monte Carlo comped me 3 more nites 'cuz they lost my laptop for 24 hours. (long stressful story). (see God-run (above^^^)).
losing my laptop proved to me that as long as you are at a poker table, you are out sight of trouble (unless you scream "FIRE" at the top of your lungs).
the worst thing that can happen is that you go pocket broke. that's nothing. if anything, it would give me an excuse to not work, oh, i mean play, and just take it easy. (whew!)
I would have much rather lost my roll than my laptop; money is replaceable, and its all the same. beji after benji.
So after a day of life tilt with my macbook in limbo, or perhaps on craigslist, whichever, i decide that i'm too exhausted to play NL, 'cuz i'm prone to mistakes in this state. and
to top it off, the week day games at Aria get grindy (i h8 playing w/ poker players, give me drunk gamblers, please.)
i'm prone to mistakes in any state, so why jump out of the skillet into the fire?? you know?
so i go off and make the biggest mistake of all.
this is how bad i suck da pokers;
I go look for some action.
I get 'hustled' into playing HU mixed games by some young drooling (over a tourist like your truly) Vegas grinder. $1 rake (kinda high imo)
i'm not saying that he was'nt smart, by using the word 'drooling', but maybe just a little over-confident in his abilities.
How does a Vegas grinder identify a tourist fish??
(by the way, this is actually a take-over, a high-jacking of the chat thread in order to keep as low profile as possible, while sharing w/ my friends here, Aceplayer, BigSkip, VeniceT, PokerBlows, you know who you are.
so i apologize for not making my own TR thread.)
so we draw for the button>
I bink it: King
I tell him that i'm King Stampler (stampler means spade in my home game), and you better be the Ace of Crubs to beat me.
to be continued. getting picked up to go to dinner. gotta dash...
