Does your wife have benefits for you and the kids through her job? If so, that is a big help. If so, that is a huge help. I am surprised she could find a job in Vegas right now, although maybe things are starting to change a bit.

cool story bro. Cars are also only for the broke and desperate

That is awesome. It sounds like you got all the ducks in a row now just need some rungood. I would like to move to Vegas, but I have a sick job here in Memphis that would be hard to get a way from.

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

i looked for u all nite at the golden nugget, my new rolls $5400, i too had a bad nite, but only $373 of it was lost at the poker, wasted a little bit on vbj at binions because they raised the payback from 6-5 to 3-2 again. as far as i know u wasnt one of the players who beat me, certainly not the rich kid with all the money my friend says was terrible and sucked out when all of my money went in preflop ($178 worth withAK against his AQ) he hit 4 spades in a row to make a flush.

am on the way back to my room in laughlin as i type on my laptop on open hwy between here and searchliight, and i might NOT come back to vegas just yet. had to go back, left $3000 of my roll in a safe deposit box in laughlin

choosing good games is by far the most important, u are absolutely right when u said everyone in vegas is solid. games are tougher, why else would u and i have both lost? great games all over the east coast, and i want to go where ill less well known.

4am rolls around and we go to leave. Ncj and his chick hit the bathroom (nasty stuff entailed I'm sure) and while I'm waiting some dude comes up to me and we start shooting the **** and he says come with me I'll buy u a drink. I say sure (oops)
I don't remember much after that other getting kicked out of ph for cussing at random people playing poker ( I know how to make friends in the right places obv) other then that my minds blank. Nvj said when they got back from the bathroom I was gone. Next thing I know I wake up at 11am in a chair next to the bellagio cafe 1400$ lighter then when I started the night. Also pulled $400 from the atm. Had the most massive head ache of my life. Possible roofy possible drunk degan, who knows. I wasnt that drunk when we left gallery so Idk fml. Anyways, lesson learned won't happen again yadayadayada. Flame away
mmm - sure u didn't wake up with more in ur pocket than u had and don't want us to work out the gory details?

Trust me, there is no chance I move to Vegas anytime soon. It probably will not be until I retire and get my RV and drive all around the country. That is still 30+ years off.

In the meantime, I will keep grinding in Tunica.

Thinking about checking out the m tourney tonight at 10. 55$ buy in with a $1000 added to 1st place. Average 20to30 runners. Sounds like decent value. Also my twitter is @derbygill. I just started it so not much on there but I'll start adding things a I go.

You'd be better off playing cash games there after midnight and then play in the tourney tomorrow.

Free bonus chips are good.

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

You start with 4000 chips, but you can get bonus chips by playing the night before starting at midnight. For every hour you play between midnight and 8:00 am, you get 1000 bonus chips. After 8:00 am, you get 500 bonus chips per hour until the event starts.

It is possible to start the event with 19000 in chips if you play all day prior to the event.

22 hour session or not I'm going to have a massive massive edge with that many staying chips. They run the same tourny on weekends, and do they hold a game 24/7?

M casino is on the bravo poker live app along with a ton of other las vegas casinos. It shows what games are running in real time.
I am assuming you have an Iphone? An poker pro worth his salt does. lol

If not you can get the info here:
bravopokerlive.com/

right now it shows only 1 game of 2/4 limit going.

no i used to have an iphone, and tmobile talked me out of it when i bought an iphone that couldnt be jailbroke to replace one i lost on the san jose city bus. so they sold me a $102 2 yrs contract per month. its an android and still a nice phone bravo poker live still works and its one of the nicest phones i ever had. remember its only been a year i had a good phone. the ones i had all the 20 yrs before that really were ****ty. ive actually looked at the bravo M application but its a pain in the butt to get to without a car its impossible.

and parisron i talked about u today in my blog today. i notice the jacksonville casino i wanted to look at the games list isnt included, u should talk them into it. not many casinos are, including both downtown vegas and a lot of others. only 1 casino is listed in laughlin, u should really work on getting more to join bravo. just because the (was it $1-3 or $1-5) stud game went on day 1, dont mean it went on day 2.

anyway im pretty sure that game seldom goes around the clock. i doubt imakeposts will be happy if all the games are limit when he shows up, and im not sure if he came to vegas in a car.
