subbing.
JM3 got it right, you're going to hear lots of sunshine cuz your a girl.
But so what. the part about moving down to 1/3, maintaining alternate source of income, only playing BJ on a stake while counting. You are making lots of responsible moves. Keep it up.

but hey if you want to be that guy, go ahead cause I'm guessing your opinion doesn't mean a whole lot to her .
lol this. Why are people hating exactly? she hasn't asked anyone for anything, just an audience. She is young and cute and likes to play poker … the haters in here just despise their lives and want to bring someone who is truly living down… will she fail? maybe, but how many of you haven't failed in life at something u wanted? Let a sista breathe.

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

OP has a few things going for her.

She's young.
I'm in my mid 30's and almost everyone in my age range wishes they took a chance on something earlier in their life that they can't exactly do currently. If this type of thing fails it is easier to rebound if young.

Her past/current life situation.
The times when this type of plan is awful is when I see people are going to take a shot at what OP is trying and are moving across country, leaving a 50k/year job(sometimes more) which would not always be easy to get back if this goes south. OP is not giving up some massive high paying or stable job to do this.

Expenses.
These sometimes start with, I have 2k a month in expenses between rent, bills, debt, car, phone etc... This can lead to some scared money or really needing to hit a monthly nut of sorts to be able to just get by. OP seems to not have high expenses.

Lady Parts.
It seems to be a plus that these are in her paints.

Lastly, it doesn't seem like there is some way better alternative that she is blowing off. I am on the side of stay in school, have a backup plan, get your life together. I don't see postponing the above a year or whatever if this fails as doing massive damage. Just need to be ready to do that when the time comes if need be. I don't live in vegas but if OP needs to get a 10-15$/hr job fast I wouldn't think that would be super tough.

My only advice would be maybe take a few classes at some Community College out there on the side, wouldn't be that much of an investment of time/lost income.

Cliffs:
Good Luck, you have lady paints, stay in school, have a backup plan.

Thank you for that!

I had a job as a car parts shipping department manager for 2 1/2 years, I woke up one day in March 2013 and chose to quit my job in order to find where I really belong.

More than 2 years later I'm where I am now because I chose to take myself to my lowest lows in order to build on that a life I can say I'm proud of

I didn't think I would want to be a poker player, it just kinda happened, and I just happen to love the highs and lows of this pursuit.

Poker is like life school with numbers, and there are infinite possibilities of success and failure in Poker, as there are in life.

It's probably because they have $3 beers and the drunkards have marinated said carpet with said beer :P

Hense the reason I chose to post in LVL, I know I probably don't have a fat chance in hell to actually accomplish such vagaries, but if I do then it'll be worth it.

I moved to LV for poker, that's the only reason.

I have bad habits that I admit to, and am set on either overcoming all adversity or at least being able to say I tried.

Even if I run home with my tail between my legs I know I've made my friends and family proud by being crazy enough to try

So what was your plan once you arrived here in vegas with no savings or br to play with? Just asking because you said you "moved to lv for poker, thats the only reason."

Also i guess ill be the one to ask... What are your skills and various talents you've developed from your many different lifestyles which enable you to build a br from scratch?

That's easy...prostitution. Easy way to build bankroll from scratch, especially the high end escorts. Furthermore it is not a hardline to do coke or heroin with a client for a extra few hundred, since an addict will be used to that

Wow. Self righteous much?

You still failed to answer the question though. It's a simple question.

I didn't read the recent posters as being Debbie Downers, but rather just clearly stating what you, yourself inferred.

You posted that you make money in a certain way that basically alluded to prostitution, theft, drug dealing or a similar activity. This is the picture you painted, not anyone else.

If this isn't the case then simply clarify and continue on with your TR. Very straightforward IMO.

Before I came to Vegas I had made a decision to do a fair amount of research into what each casino offered, so I got online (PokerAtlas.com they post all tournament and cash game info for each Poker Room) and wrote down all the different daily tournaments that were appealing to me. The ones I recorded had to have a few attributes in order for me to feel like they were +EV, basically I looked for larger starting stacks and longer blind levels.

After I made the move here and started to think more about game selection, I also thought about how the vibe of any given poker room might effect my play. Things I consider are if I'm able to focus, if I'm comfortable, if the bathroom is close to the poker room, and of course with so many rooms to choose from, where I run the best while on the felt.

I've played on either 1/2 or 1/3 in the rooms I have went to:

Orleans:
I've only played one session in this room on 1/3. I went in the early evening and put my name on the list. Waited 2 hours to sit with 10+ names on the board. I played for about 4 hours, didn't catch many hands but was opening in MP and taking a few pots down with a cbet post flop. I got up from the table and left down about $30.

Aria:
I played in Aria on VDay weekend, the action was great and I enjoyed drinking while running over the table from like 10pm til about 5am. I was +300 or so sitting behind 600 when I got set over set aiof. I guess the floorman in the poker room had told the chip runner not to let me buy back in bc I was being belligerent (was not) and I managed to get myself kicked out. I also dropped 3 bills that I never found. I enjoy the vibe, the action is definitely there and aside from that one hand I do profit in that room.

MGM:
The room is comfortable, distractions from the casino aren't too bad, although I personally don't like the openness of it I think the vibe is good. I've never won in this room, last session I played I wrongly made a fold with NFD on the turn getting odds but not realizing it until I folded. There was a fish on Btn and I misclicked bc I didn't think for like 5 more seconds. I busted that session with 99vsAK aipf. UTG LAG Opens to $7, I 3b to $35, folds around to OR, he snap jams abd I tank call. Spikes the A on river lol gg. Not planning on playing there much.

Venetian:
Firstly, I hate the Venetian bc Adelson makes me want to puke. Secondly, I play well in this room. I've heard people say the game is too nitty, but I feel like I've made appropriate adjustments to take advantage of that and have made the most money in the Sands poker room. Service is decent, and they're doing $2 max rake all of May. You can use your $2hr comps tin increments of $10 to buy into their tournaments, so it's a profitable room IMO. Played 8.5hrs, in for $200 & out for $462(+$262). I played here for an hour this past Saturday before heading to Caesars.

Caesars:
I only wind up in this room if I'm drunk. I hate the game, I've played here twice, first time I got kicked out bc I sit down and lose like $20 then the game breaks so I sit at other table. I sit down and this dude's gf is sitting behind him blatantly making fun of people with disabilities and diseases while I'm in the hand with him. I Don't even think I had a high card when I went all in & he called. I asked the floor to make her shut up and she says "Why, what did I do?" Which pushed me into drunkenly tilted Amanda and I yelled some f bombs about how ****ty a person she had to be in order to talk about it in person and gave condolences to her bf for picking such a winner.

I made it here after Venetian on Sat, lost top set aiof 7h6h5c to guy with 85hh. Turn Qh. Played for another hour with 2nd nuts a few times and left down $130. Doubtful I'll play there again tbh.

Planet Hollywood:
I've played the daily, like the vibe but again the openness isn't really my thing

Treasure Island:
Played first daily in this room, dealers are very strict on rules which is one less thing I have to worry about. They have a $65 daily, no antes. Cashed 4/40 in 4hrs for $200 (+135) I'll probably play here again. With 9 players left I got down to like 5bb in bb & looked down at 83o with the other 2 short stacks having shipped in front of me and I called off flipped 66vs77vs83 & I obvi spiked the 8 on river

Wynn:
This is my favorite room by far, winning at the Wynn. .. get it? So I like the action in this room, the vibe and the room is off to the side of the casino as well. They are the only room in Vegas that actually serves Chocolate Milk (Only hot chocolate in the other casinos I've asked in) and Its a short walk to Venetian. I was in 1/3 for $100(I know it's short) when I get 99 UTG +1 with a $6 straddle. I raise to $12, 3 callers sb & bb fold, straddle pops it to $45, I snap jam my $72 into his +$700 stack and he turns up KK. Board runs out K93x9. He moved seats and I racked up and went over to Bellagio.

Bellagio:
I lost like $60 over like 2 hours of play, my game had no action and the vibe was not my vibe that day. I'm thinking it may have had a lot to do with being super tired at that point, so I'm gonna play back in there when I get a feeling for it.

When I "gamble" I'm not as picky lol

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

While nothing necessarily comes off as a Brandi type of situation so far, it is very possible that a couple of wrong turns (drugs, prostitution etc) could lead in that direction for OP especially with such a dark history. Hope you keep your head on your shoulders in Vegas and have a sensible, well-designed backup plan in case things go to ****.

Best of luck.

I do not prostitute. Hope that help to clarify.

I've not inferred nor alluded to any such Illegal activity.

Most of my money comes from gambling, and I live with my friend who's home I clean in exchange for a room.

Pretty sure I've already covered this.

Its not self righteous by any means, I'm sorry you feel that way. Its the video that inspired me to chase my dreams, so I try to live humbly and the money finds its way to me In one form or another, and definitely not illegally.

Re: Just a girl with her head in the clouds

After reading the rundown of casinos, HHs and whatnot; Lol.


Secondly, what you said plainly inferred prostitution, selling drugs, whatever. You mainly gamble for a living, though you don't have money to gamble with, OK.
