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

That wasn't a degen story, more like a glimmer of hope to us degens.

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
