Spoiler:

I look back and 3 months ago I needed 12-15k to be even..now I need 30k. It's funny how far I have come. I think the immediate month after I ended up in a bigger hole of 20k and took a loan from a private lender, the month after I was in a 26k hole and took a loan from a private lender - the moth after that as in 2-3 weeks ago I was in a 18k hole and won a 22k parlay. And as of now I need 30k. I was betting $250 back then on parlays now I am betting $750. Everything as has multiplied..don't even know where the time went.

OH I won a lot of parlays in the last 3 months..ranging from 1-10k. Biggest was 22k which bailed me out. I also missed a lot of 7 gamers by 1 game which paid out 40k. Hoping to hit something this week. This is all I have the time for now.

Lot of black jack run ups..and losses. Biggest blackjack win $13k. Biggest black jack loss - $13k. Lot of $5-10k black jack wins and losses also.

Had a bad trip down virtual horses as well. Had to ban my bet365 account because of it. Maybe punted close to 10k on horses. Basically everything has gotten out of hand and I am just spewing out numbers. Whatever I can recall at least. Will keep you guys updated this time around because it once again feels like death is around the corner!

If it makes you feel better, golfer John Daly lost $55 million! You can never outrun the game. Learn from their mistakes.

Re: Degen Stories....

My lifetime of degeneracy started when I was 18. Me and a few friends had planned out a sick Eurotrip. I had around 5k saved up from reselling clothes/sneakers in highschool.

Our first stop was London. I had never stepped foot in a casino before. It was 3am and we had just gotten back from a club, all drunk as ****. I played some BJ and roulette and ended up up around 200 pounds for the night. Both of my friends also won around the same amount and we were all hype as ****. Got into our hotel at 6am, Next day we cashed out and went on a little shopping spree in Soho, got lobster for dinner and balled out hard at the bar.

Fast forward 3 weeks. We have been going to casinos 2-3 times a day everyday for the entire trip. We would gamble after breakfast, before the bar to pregame at, after the club at 4am. A lot of ****ing degeneracy, some of my most ignorant times. I was up around $1000 in total, one of my friends was about even, and the other was down a few hundred bucks.

We flew into London for our last layover at 10pm and our flight was scheduled to head back to the states at 6am. Instead of paying for a hotel, we decided to stay at the Hippodrome for our last 10 hours in London. Free bag check, discounted meals, why not.

Immediately after stepping in, I throw a 20 pound note on #18 in roulette. It hits. I put that entire stack on black. It hits. I let it ride one more time on black. It hits.

I played 100 pound BJ for the rest of the night. Nothing really notable happens - I walk out with 5000 pounds (as a 18 year old).

A week later, I go on a roadtrip with my friend to Montreal, donk off about $1500 at roulette.

Fast forward 2 years: I've probably given most of that initial 5k back to the casinos and they now have a customer for life. I turn 21 in a few months by the way if there are any casino reps lurking who want to comp me a room for my 21st in Vegas ))

At least there's free drinks!!!!

Re: Degen Stories....

Going to start this off by saying this might not be a degen story. Not when compared to my old posts, I guess.

Up until today I had completely phased gambling out of my life. Thennn my girlfriend out of the blue says she liked me better when I gambled. I was like what?? She said I was more emotional, more fun. I asked her how and if I won we lived like kings, and if I lost.. we still kind of lived like kings. I'd burn as much money as I lost on 'fun' things in her mind.

She bought me a $50 prepaid card, and I immediately lost it two tabling $25PLO. I have no idea why, but this ultra mega tilted the living **** out of me. It wasn't the money.. it was just how gambling owns my soul. I 'quit' gambling after winning $2,000 on my last session of roulette, and was fine with that. Now I'm down $50 for no reason. It wasn't even my money but it still tilted me, I shouldn't have played.

Well, I fire up ol' entro pay.. load $50 onto the site, and away I go.. I win up to $180 spazzing out in PLO and then start playing satellites. I get into a $109 tourney in this crapshoot satellite. I was going to unregister for T$, but the tourney had already started. Actually I'm not sure if you can just take T$ anymore, but anyways.. 7 hours later I cashed in my first major final table for just over $2900 USD.

I tried to keep this short and to the point but now I'm tequila rambling.

I banned myself for 48 hours so I can wire the money into my bank upon logging in. $2900 USD is $3600 CAD for me, weeee.

Although this win has made me feel ecstatic it kind of feels like a loss. Because I shouldn't have gambled in the first place. I know I can't control myself gambling and that last miracle roulette session, and this miracle tournament session shouldn't have happened. Because I should have the self control to not gamble. Right now I just want to go hard in tournies buuut I know myself and I'm not tournament wizard. I tried to keep this short but I swear its the tequila talking...

If anyone wants pics and **** for proof I'll post them later it's 1 am I'm heading to the bar with a few buds happy degenning

On a degen scale of 1-10 this is about a 2.2 but after hearing it took two years to give back most of that 5k it is now about a .7/10

I didnt, I went to Mohegan Sun today with $500. Lost that in first hour at Baccarat. Took another $500, lost that quick.

Wouldnt you know it keeps hitting 29, 23, 25, but never 26. I last a hour and busto. I have donked off $6500 in one week, and basically lost my gambling roll. Its been a fun summer, I bought a Omega Watch, paid off 5k in student loans, but today i lost my source of fun I always protected by betting within my means. I am full of shame and regret, downing a pint on liquor but its not enough to relieve the sting.

MajorLeagueDegen View Post
Earlier this week I had BY FAR the most embarrassing moment of my life, I doubt anything in the future will even come remotely close. A few months ago I moved into a share house with a bunch of degen mates, three of us are poker players and the other two are uni students. Rent was due this Saturday, me being the degen I am I didn't have enough cash to cover the $300 rent that was due. I had stayed up the previous night grinding the living **** out of 25NL in the hopes of running up my measly $140 roll into something I could work with. Needless to say I didn't get a ticket for the run good express train and busted my account along with what little left of my dignity I had left.

My parents know that I play poker but are under the impression I'm somewhat of a crusher (I'm not...). I called them up and made up some bull**** story about how my bank account what locked due to suspicious activity and I'd have to send in documents to get my account reinstated. They fronted me the $300 for rent, gg. Now at least I've bought myself a little bit of time and hopefully somehow I'll be able to get myself out of the train wreck that is my life. Later that evening I'm drinking and smoking bongs out the back with the boys. I don't know how the topic came up but the question was how much money would you need to be paid to waterfall into your own mouth (pee into your mouth)...

All the boys came up with what I considered complete bull**** numbers, $4,000 was the lowest I believe any of them said they'd be willing to do it for. ****ing hell, I'd do it for a mars bar and a snickers... Twice! Anyway I used my master negotiation skills and managed to get the boys to agree to give me $300 to do it. I made sure they had the cash upfront. One of them wanted to film it, **** that! I'm a degen but I don't want the whole world to know about my low-life shenanigans. We came to a middle ground, for an extra $200 bucks he could snap chat it and that was it.

I was ready to go! I had sunk quite a few beers so I knew my piss stream would be easily strong enough. I just wanted to get this over with, I got up, stood on the edge of the deck and proceeded to take a steaming hot piss directly into my mouth (didn't swallow obv). I had the boys around me cackling with laughter with their phones out. This is where **** hit the ****ing fan. My ****ing Mum walked around the side of the house right as I was peeing in my mouth surrounded by a bunch of boys... She had brought me over a casserole because she thought I wasn't going to have access to money for a couple of days. I don't think I'm ever going to be able to forget the look of absolute shock and disgust on her face as long as my little degen heart keeps on beating.

I don't know what he was thinking but one of my dickhead mates (he's apologised profusely afterwards) for some reason thought it'd be a good idea to tell my Mum exactly why I did it, she managed to put one and one together and realised I was a broke ****ing degen. She left the house, face in her hands sobbing her eyes out. Funny thing is she is equally as mad at my friend for allowing me to go through with this (let's call him Ryan) who I have been friends with since forever. He's always been the sensible one of the group. Anyway my Mum wants me to go to rehab, lol. Not gonna happen. I feel bad and all but god damn it feels good to be able to get back into the action. Anyway I'm off to most likely blow through my new found 'wealth', if you can even call it that.
Cant believe I haven't seen this one before
