Cool bro. I admire your sacrifice and dedication. Living in your car must suck, but I'm sure it'll be worth it in the long run. glgl

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

A Terrific Punt

OK. This hand happened yesterday.

$300-$500 buy-in $5-$5 blinds

Hero($585) 32cc. So far I have been playing very tight for a few hours and havent really gotten much in the way of cards. I looked down at 32clubs and against my better judgement I decide to raise to $25.

Villain 1 Avg reg MAWG
Villain 2 Avg reg MAAW
Villain 3 TAG ~25yr old

Villain 3 limps UTG I raise to $25 in MP villain 1 calls OTB villain 2 calls in SB and villain 3 calls from UTG limp.

Flop QJThhx

Check check to me I bet $45 and all 3 call.

Turn 6s

Check check to me and I'm thinking that everyones ranges are capped. Theres $300 out there and if I just reach out and shove all-in its mine. I have no pair and no draw just a stone cold bluff. But I've told myself if I see a play that I'm going to make it. So I go all-in. Villain 1 quickly folds. Villain 2 Asian lady thinks for a few minutes and calls. Villain 3 thinks for a minute and calls. Asian lady had TT and young guy had JJ river was a Q and obv I punted away a stack. Lol.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

I won a seat to the 10k WPT LAPC main event in a raffle.

Commerce Casino has been running a promotion where if you make a full house using both hole cards Monday-Saturday then they give you a ticket to a drawing on Sunday. Well I've been doing ok this week so I had 5 tickets. There are 5 potential seats given away on Sunday the drawings start at 7:30 and end at 11:30 one drawing every hour on the half hour. I was in a rush driving on the freeway to get there by 730 lol. Well I got there on time and 730 rolls by and they call 3 tickets and there is no winner. So no winner for 730. 830 rolls around and I have all my tickets with my initials showing in case its my initials someone might help me out. Well the player left of me says "RB" my initials and points up to the giant screen displaying the winning ticket. I go through all my tickets and OMFG the last ticket is the matching ticket! 129305 RB thats me OMFG!!!!! I saunter up to the casino services to claim my mothereffing 10k WPT seat. The floorperson takes me up to the ballroom to have my 10k seat printed and it's the real deal guys. I'm freerolling in a 10k tournament!!!! OMFG!!!!!!

Dont worry about me btw with that 32cc hand lol I still won 800 that day. And I also won 600 today(besides the 10k lol) and just been kicking butt in general. I will try to post more here and probably be playing a bunch of MTTs online.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

I seriously can't believe this is real. Like if I was reading this right now I would assume that OP is full of ****. "Yeah right you're living in your car and you hit the bad beat jackpot and then later you win a 10k WPT seat in a drawing. BS" Lol yeah right. I said the casino could take a pic of me so when they post that on their social media I'll link it here and I'll take a pic of my entry ticket to prove, yes, I'm the luckiest mofo alive!!! Weeeeeee!!!!! I feel like I'm going to win this thing.

Thanks. I already had a reg ask if I was selling action and suggested I could sell 3k to people at a markup be a win/win. I'm not really interested in selling action though. I'm going to give a couple friends and 4 family members a 1% stake for free. I'm going to use that energy to win this mofo!!! I got nothing to lose!

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

When I was at the VIP cashier getting the buyin ticket the floorlady asked "Are you excited to play?" and this was when I asked if I could get cash instead because I would prefer it over a 10k tourney but she said no. So I said "well then I'm very excited to play in this tournament! I'm glad actually that I'm forced to play instead of take the money" She also asked if I was a No limit hold em player which I thought was a little funny but whatever I said yes and she asked if I played tournaments so I told her I played online and that I won more than I lost so she said good. And she also expressed that she wanted one of the freerollers to win to which I replied thats fine with me I want to win it.

I really think I got a shot at this guys.

Thanks. I'm pretty sure I can't sell and I don't really want to if I could. I've been playing poker since I was 16 since 2003 when I first saw Gus Hansen win the WPT on the travel channel. My first exposure to NLHE was a WPT broadcast. Now 15 years later I've got a chance to be in one? Nah my friend, it's fate.

Re: living out of my car in los angeles....

You can sell the seat to somebody else tho right? Don't know why you couldnt.

If the answer is no, you're an absolute moron for not selling action into a tournament thats likely as much as your entire net worth.

lol "fate", what a joke. This type of thinking is why you live in your car.

stfu everyone.
he hit a badbeat jackpot.
he won a 10k entry from a raffle.

play the 10k tourney, you are so damn lucky that you'll prolly ship it without even watching your holecards. And then you can live on the seats of your car, at that time it will be a lambo.

XD
