I haven't yet. I will be taking at least 1 shot over the next week sometime. I don't know if that game you mentioned would be the best choice for a shot taker however...

To be honest 2-5 plays worse than 1-2. At least where I play on the river boats and underground games it is.

Re: I moved to vegas to play poker blah blah blah follow me thread

That's how it is, only reg game is belagio and there are so many mid life crisis dudes with gold rings and other bling. Or you got people who are making a living at it, it's a battle of getting the fish.

Chicago or Cali is more profitable. Yes I know from exp.

Who are you telling me to gtfo? I'm right admit it.

Are you implying that the only reg 2.5 game is at bellagio because if so that really shows how out of touch you are.. Venetian normally has 3-11 2,5 games at all times,aria has a bunch everyday, bellagio will have 2+, mgm gets 2 or so daily and pH will always have some on weekends. Oh and the Wynn and chasers has 2,5 running pretty regularly as well.

63.22 hours
+ 2232 bbs
35. 5bb per hour Average

Really need to play more. Had a bunch of people hit me up to hang out with them here on 2+ 2 and that has kept away from the tables. I will be putting in a minimum of 40 hours this week. For a year+ I played 40 hours a week so I know I can do it. I've been showing up and winning a lot early then taking off after a couple of hours which isn't acceptable.

Anyways off to play, and I'll be putting in 6 hours tonight, take tomorrow off then put in a min of 6 hours a day the rest of the week.. Assuming everything goes good this week my 1st 2,5 shot on Friday so gl me! Will update after session tonight.

70$/hr at 1/2. Totally sustainable right? lol

Obviously you are running well and playing great. Congrats. But what do you think your hourly will be when things level out?

GL tonight.

Do you think you could maintain a rate of $35/hr?

I just want to know what your perception of how hot you are running is right now.

What was your biggest losing session so far this trip if you have had one?

Continued success. GL

I think I can average 10-15bb an hour at least.. I have been running pretty well don't get me wrong but what I have noticed is rarely am I in situations where I'm lost or don't know what the correct play is which I feel is most important. I've had 17 sessions with only 1 losing session so far.. That was for 500$ and I was just spewing my brains out.. Happened 2nd night I was here

1.25 hours played + 104bb.. Heading home hopefully coming back out.. I have acid reflux and otc stuff doesn't help me, so I gotta go home and take some of my medicine. I ate pizza earlier and right when I started playing my stomach started beating the **** out of me. games right now at venetian suck anyways.. I'll probably hit up pH or mgm if I feel better and come back out.

As oyu mentioned imake this game might not be for you. When I was there the button straddle was $10 to $50 and the game played huge. You do not have the bankroll yet to do this as based on your prior posts. Would not recommend this as your 2/5 shot.

I've been reading the thread all day, and it helps pass time at school. Good luck man, I hope you can make it. But above has to be one of the funniest quotes of the thread, no offense, Ben.
