She'll have a double whammy of being shocked that you would suggest such a thing as well as that you suddenly speak Swedish.

In the pause when she's staring at you with her mouth wide open, laugh and then follow up with "Ingen ko på isen" which translates to "Don't worry", then throw down cash to cover the entire tab. Even better, that's an old Swedish idiom which literally means "There's no cow on the ice" which somehow means "Don't worry".

If the deal was not already sealed before this, it will be after.
This is GOLD ! Thanks Man!

Re: Wont Stop, Cant Stop! "The Life of a VEGAS Grinder"

Alright guys back from my session at Caesars again!
Met up with the sweden girl from my earlier posts and we kicked back and had acouple of drinks. My first hour was very swingy, and ended up hitting some good hands to take my +50 ish for the first 2 hours or so. then i ended up losing my first 150 to a bluff i tried with a missed flush draw. The bluff i played was absolutly beauitful and had him tanking for a good acouple of mins before he threw the chip in! (F*CK) lool

Bought in for another 150 and also was very swingy for the last acouple of hours!
was down to about 80 or so then i hit me 2 sets which did bring me back up to about 160 and then i ran into this hand.
(P.S. i know this was a terrible play and realized i was too tired to be playing)

Button Straddled pot and my table only was about 5 handed. 4 limp call with me in LP.
Straddler raises it up to 15, (Guy has played loose all night) Everyone calls including me with K 9.

Flop comes A J J
All check to me i decided to bet and see if i could take it down
Button straddler re raises me with 50 and all fold.
I tank for about 30 seconds and say "I know you dont have the jack"
I PUSH and get an insta call..... He tables Jack 4.
Turn Brick, river brick. (****) i figured the push could of dumped him if he had a low ace, and obviously i still had outs if he did hit the jack or called with the ace.

(P.s. Me and this guy kind of battled throughout the night. I think tilt maybe was involved alittle bit)



my first losing session this blog, played for about 5 hours and ran decent the whole time. Gotta stop playing when i know im too tired.
-300 total for tonight, not mad at the way i played all night until my last hand.

$ BANKROLL: $1300 $

Re: Wont Stop, Cant Stop! "The Life of a VEGAS Grinder"

Such a sick session at the red rock!
I sit down at the table with 150, everyone is playing max so im only one short stacked.
I wanted to bet some hands today and wasnt scared of anyone at the table, i was here to stack some people!

first hour or so i watch people and everyone seems to be playing ABC poker for the most part, but one guy.. got his girl next to her and he seems to be the agressor at the table.
I took some decent pots down with top pair and everytime i won a pot this guy was staring at me like he wanted my stack.

I get Q Q in Big blind, the "GUY" raises it 12 and get 2 callers including button. I decide hey lets raise this shyt up alittle bit! since 3 callers, i decide to make it 45. Everyone calls but butto, so about 135ish in pot pre.

Flop comes 223

I push, decide not to let these guys any further.
"GUY" Insta folds and is very much tempered at this play while the 2nd caller calls me off. he has K Q .

TURN : BRICK RIVER :BRICK! HELL YEA.
So this put me around 250 ish.

Next couple of hands this "Guy" is just staring me down trying and for some reason i cant help but laugh (Guy was to serious for me lmao). I knew if there was a pot with us it was gonna be a big one with this guy.

Im in position with J7

Guy is MP and decides to bump it up to 15, 1 caller and myself call.
Flop comes Q 8 5
Guy barely even looks at the flop before i see him grabing chips, He makes it 30. Caller flops and **** Flush draw? Im in. CALL.

Turn Brick 3. Guy with no hesitation makes it 45..
I begin my table talk** haha, i tell him i know hes on air. I put him on a A K and tell him that. He then percedes to tell me, "You call this perpare for a Big bet on the river"(i get the tell hes on nothing, strong means weak, weak means strong)he says "well what do you have then kid?" I say "im on a middle pair but im pretty sure im good cause i knew if i was in a pot you were gonna bet regardless of your hand" I Call. My implied odds were great because he pretty much told me he was betting the river, so if i did hit the diamond i hit the lotto.

RIVER 2 ******, Regardless if the diamond comes or not i was prepared to push if he checks, because the tells were just insane and i felt like he might be trying to push me off a hand. He checks, and i say "Common man, if you had the queen wouldnt you bet?" IM ALL IN.

He says "Good play.." mucks.. Everyone at the table is just astounded i made this guy fold.. Everyone says "Nice read" and "This kids good".. I show JACK high.
GUY IS HEATED lmao and everyone is just in a "cant believe it state" !
Only reason i called was because implied odds were there and i knew this guy was just trying to push me off with an ace high or worst.

+360 ish for this session. cashed at at like 410 ish**


$ BANKROLL: $1660 $

Heres a porn star that comes in my work every other week! I serve her and just cant stop but stare at those tits! (Heres for the chip porn picture i didnt have )

But it was suited ..

haha im just playing but i honestly wanted to play against him post flop. he was gunning for me and i felt that he was raising light.

Had a job interview to transfer Job Locations and decided i would (considering so far they have treated me fairly.) And while out there i realized i was pretty damn close to the aria which has daily $125. And heck why not?

Soo long story short, i ended up bubbling in 22nd or so by a jack 3... 6 hours in that b*tch and i get busted by j 3 off suit GG!

Il go over hand just to show you how bad this sucked, i was sitting at 9-10 big blinds(blinds 2000) though so it was an snap call regardless.

Im MP 6 handed, i get A J and bump it to 4000, leaving me with about 15k ish.
Flop comes j 9 3
Guy was in Big Blind and shoved when flop came..
Snap call. he tables J 3
Wt****ing gay..?



Eh I felt like i out played the opponents and the tournament itself was just an amazing structure. although sitting in that casino for 6 hours only to get bubbled(ouch). the rake was extremely high too i believe and i think online poker is way more profitable in tournament poker wise. Cash game LIVE all day. ERR DAY.

Side note: Cashes sucked unless you hit first through 4 with a 140 player field. ehh **** that

i had people to act in front of me and the guy to my left turned over the nuts (A K, QQ, KK , JJ ) Everytime i put a raise in, so i decided to min raise and see if that would take it down. (Bad idea) the field is so soft people call raises with jack **** (Literally).

Re: Wont Stop, Cant Stop! "The Life of a VEGAS Grinder"

It was a horrible play because when you get down to 10 BBs, you should never be limping or raising a portion of your stack - you should only be shoving. It's basic short-stack strategy. What would you have done if you had missed the flop? Check/fold? The shorter you are in a tournament, the more valuable your chips are.

I understand i play mostly MTTs online and understand the concept. i through out a min raise to make sure my ace jack** good(i was playing too tight i think). 9 times out of 10 thou my ace jack is good in that scenario thou, but overall i feel the play was bad and learned from it especially in such a soft field. 1 mistake will cost you your tourney. (im not used to 6-8 hour tourneys i love the structure but something you have to practice.)
Im pushing with 77,88,99,10,JJ,QQ,KK,AA,AK, AQ without a problem.

Sweden chick i havent got a hold of because i lost my phone and been focusing on those tables but will keep contact thou. girls come and go, im here to f*cking grind.

Side note: Working on getting my LIVE better, I started LIVE and feel if i work on it i could be top of the field. I will be in a few big GTD's here soon, many events.

Re: Wont Stop, Cant Stop! "The Life of a VEGAS Grinder"

Btw i woke up early this morning to grind the cash game!
Figure today i was going to South Point Casino, been here before but no action usually only 1 table filled with regs.

I get to south point which is way closer then any casino, to bad when i got there not 1 single game was going..
People on the wait and they said it would be 20 mins. i figured id wait nothing else to do.
I started off with a 2 - 4 limit which is so unexciting i wanted to fall asleep. people tanking on 4 dollar river bets lmao.

1/2 limit game opens up, BINGO lets go.
Starting off we had a fun raising light game only 6-7 handed and everyone seemed to be playing anything. ended up winning a decent pot with ace jack and was sitting at about 180(bought in for 140).
THIS ****IGN HAND.. felted me by some old chick lol.

I have 8 9 in MP. folds me and i raise it up 15, i get 2 callers.

Flop comes...
10 J Q

I check through, i get a 20 dollar raise following by a 50 re raise. back to me..
WTF?
That ***** has AK..
I call.
BOOM short stack push 15 extra on top of the original raiser. not worried about him hes on A Q or something i felt. Girl calls, i call. (Call seemed weak).

TURN 5
Girl instantly pushes... IM beat, about 350 in pot now with only 50 $ left..
I call .
Tables A K . GG

River 2

Kid has K Q.

I didnt want to call the last of my 50$ but pretty much have to given pot odds.
