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

Get someone you know that has good credit to add you as an authorized user to a couple of cards that are old, in good standing, and have a high credit limit.

Wait a few months, make sure they are reporting, then apply for your own card(s).

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

Use self lender or money lion. They accept everyone and moneylion gives you a 500 loan to every customer that you pay back over a year. Self lender is basically you make payments towards a 500 or 1000 loan that doesnít exist. You make payments basically to just save them and collect the 1000 out the end but it reports as on time payments. Just google credit repair and watch a YouTube video. Itís easy to fix

Played the 10k cash survivor tourney. Lost a big all-in pre 40bb with QQ<KK. Whatever, at least I didn't waste too much time. I'm procrastinating on the 2months10k right now, gonna gamble my balls off last minute to make it.

Reserve me a seat! Would be awesome to get a fun, no tanking, sociable game going. Even better if everyone agreed to the 20 being on often and bomb pots every dealer change!

Right so all professional poker players live in their cars then. lmao you guys are hilarious.

Rick slipped and fell down a canyon trying to kill a snake and can't call for help because he doesn't take his phone hiking.

RIP Rick.

Don't worry, you're in.

Results 3/18: +$580

Been playing 5/5 at the Bike since they have a tourney series going on and that seems like the thing to do. Reminds me of Rounders seeing the same faces at fidderent(leaving it) places. Anyway I plan on traveling down to San Diego than a bunch of different places. Gonna bring the vlog back to life. Make a bunch of random videos that no one will view. Whatever. Also I've been having random conversations with made up characters in my head. I think I'm losing my mind. But that's exactly the creative spark I need to write something! I need to get this madness out of my head and onto some paper! Pronto. I want to be a writer but I don't want to write. I just think it's sounds more impressive to be an unsuccessful author rather than a delusional poker addict. Maybe I'll just tell people I'm more accomplished than I really am.

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

"The craziest 5/5 game ever." That's sure what it seemed like yesterday. I was playing at the Bike and it was more like a 5/5/10/20/40 game. Seeing a lot of blind raises and all sorts of whacky stuff. I was playing with a fella named OD who was talking almost the entire time yet managed to not get on my nerves. The game was really fun. The tables at the Bike are right next to the bar in some spots and our table was right next to the bar. Harry was drinking with OD at the bar for a while watching our crazy table when he realizes theres a seat open and he sits down. Everyone who walks by assumes its a 5/T table because everyone's 3 or 4k deep practically. There was also a couple of Spanish guys and a guy who claimed he was Argentinian but I wasn't buying it, he seemed like another Spanish guy to me. Yo hablo espanol un poquito. And OD was trash talking them pretty good in Spanish, it was funny.

Perfecta

Hero BB ($1060) AA
OD UTG straddle (covers) JT??
Villain 1 ( ~$1500) QQ
Villain 2 (~2k) 88??

5/5/10

Villain 1 opens to 40, V2 calls, and before we look down at our cards there is the ace of spades exposed. No matter, we still got the rockets. Bang! I raise to 125. Probably too small. Whatever. E'rybody call me. 4 ways to the flop.

Flop ($500) 986r

Hmmmm. What to do, what to do. We say our two favorite words, "All-in" and get a quick call from OD. He starts asking me how I feel about it and while I don't say anything my face is giving it away. I don't like it. "You don't look good man". Villain 1 rejams for 1500 and now I'm sure I'm beat in two spots. More of the same, OD asking me how feel about the hand. Uh, I've got double digits of my networth riding on the outcome of this hand. Not great. Now villain 2 literally calls his buddy from two tables away to show him his hand. I don't think you're supposed to do that but this game is unhinged. Whatever, I continue sitting there looking sick. He shows Vinny his buddy the hand and then folds. He would later claim to have flopped middle set and folded because he was sure OD had the straight. The board runs out deuce then a jack, queens shows then I show then OD fake slowrolls me which I am totally buying but then eventually mucks his hand. I can't believe it that I won the hand. Insane! Get called by worse in two spots all-in and get the best hand to fold. Skill pot!!!



Results 3/22: +$2360

Lol at that 88 fold. He must not realize that you boat or quads up like 40% of the time. Would need to be completely positive somebody had 99 to fold that

Yeah I think he showed his friend expecting OD to have a straight and the other guy to have top set or something and he's making the ninja evade. I mean I'm just shrug jamming AA on that flop so I'm definitely calling off with 88 in his spot. But they were both over 2k deep for the hand so he got scurred. Sick hand to win. The pocket queens villain said the only reason he went all in was because the ace was exposed pre. Stuff like that throws people through a loop sometimes.
