Re: Degen Stories....

I have never been that guy, but I am now that guy. I had some health stuff come up late last year and was out of work, there is no disability for the type of work I did. Basically my thing to do has been play poker, just to keep me sane. I have bills though, and paying those bills sucks most of my cash, so my bankroll is part of my life roll. I pulled from credit cards to make sure I had enough to get by, I wasn't losing anything major, I still haven't lost anything major, but I pulled from credit cards and added that to my cash to make sure I had enough for these bills, and now I lost what I needed for bills because I was trying to get enough up to pay the bills and still have a little bit to play with. I knew it was a dumb gamble to begin with, but I wanted to try it because I didn't feel like sitting around. Now I will find a way to come up with that money anyways, and kick myself for being an idiot.

The good thing is, I realize what I have done, and I am stepping away from the tables again. Once you realize what you are doing is counter productive, turning around and doing something productive in your life, no matter how small, feels like a step forward. I don't feel like I need to get even, I feel like I spent my money having a good time playing poker, and now I need to find a way to pay for that entertainment, since it didn't pay for itself. Not about to try the "let's get even" game. I am stepping away until I have enough extra cash to play comfortably and not put myself in positions like I did today.

Re: Degen Stories....

Lost $400 last night at 8/16 lhe, card dead as a mfer. Go back this morning to kill time until a meeting at 1:00 pm. Get a free breakfast that was just OK.

Sit down at 3/6 LHE to see how much more miserable i can get. Buy in for $100 and down to my last $15. Raise pre flop with QQ. 3 callers. Flop is AA5. Bad beat jackpot is $22k. C'mon ONE TIME!

Turn is an Ace! We got this. Floor is called over by dealer. Tight old lady nit calls. I put her on A-10. River is a six. Go all in with my last $2 just knowing i am about to win $11k.

I table my QQ to oohs and ahhhs from the crowd. Lady nit turns over A3 so her kicker doesn't play and no jackpot. FML.

Re: Degen Stories....

Don't really want to go into that many details, just want to say that I had one of my biggest losses on BJ a week ago. Absolutely brutal. I ended up losing two times where I split/resplit and double, none of them getting anywhere near 17 and dealer fails to bust.

Also somewhat funny story at the end of the night/early morning. I kept running so incredibly ridic bad that on every 10/11 when doubling I kept yelling 2!!! I had at least 10 or so doubles in a row where I had 10/11 and got a 2 or a 3, dealers could not believe it either and the dealer would simply NEVER bust.

Hands like 6 for dealer, obv draws 7 and 8 for 21. Worst tilt I had in my life, not life changing money but can easily say it would be a pretty huge amount for a normal person, the amount I managed to burn through in one night.

Edit: always makes me so incredibly sick after such a huge loss to look at the converted value of money lost. While at the tables live or online it is easy to bet/lose/win. You do not mind doubling down (and possibly losing) 11 vs a 5 for loads, but the next day it obv hurts even more thinking back at it and imagine how much nice stuff you could have bought for that money.

Re: Degen Stories....

I've lost over $170,000 in the last 3 years at our local casino and online roulette. ONLINE ****ING ROULETTE. I used to crush PLO online. When I went to the casino, I'd bring $40 and play a few hands of blackjack. Double my money, get a few drinks and leave, or lose it all, get a few drinks and then leave, no problem. And then I played roulette one time. I don't know what that game does to me, but it is the ****ing devil. Nothing in my life has made me lose control as much as roulette does. It ****ing sickens me.

Nowadays I can never put money online, as I'll torch it on roulette. It always leads down that road. This time would be different I told myself. I would put on $2,000, 40 BI of 50PLO. Grind, grind, grind. Get things going again. Start actually having spending money. My goal was $10,000. I reached my goal in 3 weeks. I wasn't playing incredible PLO, I was just on the biggest sun run of my life so far. My BR hit $3,000 and I took a shot 2 tabling 100 PLO. I ended one table at $1670, and my second table at $930. Smashing every flop in 3b/4b pots, hitting perfect turn cards floating, backdoors, everything went my way. I hit $10,300 from $2,000 in three weeks.

I decided it was time for a 2 tabling shot at 400PLO. I instantly lost a buy in, no big deal. Lost the second buy in as a 93% favourite, and went berserk. I fired up roulette, shut it down.. only to load it right back up. $200 bet on third 12. Comes 32, sweet. I bet second 12, comes 18, sweet! $800 profit in two spins.

Two spins, I recouped my 2 BI shot. Hell yeah, what an awesome game. I start two tabling 400 PLO again, and honestly, played too loose, got myself in bad spots and whatever, lost it. Deserved to lose. Fired up the ol' roulette. $200 on first, plus $25 on 7 and 11. It comes 7! I'll remember it so well, no bounce, nothing. Just boom, 7. At this point my BR is at the highest it has been this deposit, awesome. Just one more spin, I feel like a roulette wizard. I put $500 on second 12, and $15 on 18, 21, 20, 17. Bang! 18! Unreal! I'm really on cloud 9 now.

Fast forward a bit, I'm at $22,880. Holy ****ing ****!! Three weeks ago I wanted $10,000, and that seemed like a pipe dream. Now I'm at $22,880, ****ing rights. I request a $5,500 cash out, and go playing on my merry way. No more ****ing roulette, I can stop forever with my $13,000 roulette win, right? Screw all the losses. Mhm.

I get brave and try 5/10 PLO and decide if I get below $15k I'll quit. Hell yeah this is my time, time to sun run again, the sky is the limit. I haven't had this much fun in online poker in years, roulette has always ruined it. There's some swongs, I'm up a little, down a little.. mostly even. Lose a couple big pots, I'm at $15k.

Fire up roulette. I put $1500 on second 12, and then take it off. What the hell am I doing? $1500 is a lot of money, three weeks ago I was dreaming of $10,000. I'll just quit for the night. I stay to watch the spin, and it comes 16. ****!! My retard roulette mind engages, me being a pussy cost myself $3,000. I have to play now.

I bet $2,000 on second 12 this time. Lose. $1,000 on second, lose. What the ****. Okay I'll stop when I'm below $10,000.

I bet $1,000 each on second 12 and third 12. Lose. **** ME.

I play a bit smaller and am winning and losing, hovering around the $11,000 mark. I get tired of betting second and third 12, and decide it's time for colours. I bet $1,000 on black. Lose. $1,500 on black. Lose. $2500 on red, lose. $2500 on red.. ****ing lose. At this point I'm hysterical, breathing heavy, swearing at the screen, talking to myself, cursing the entire world. I load my entire balance on second 12. I feel my heart sink I already know I'm going to lose. I keep telling myself at least I'm up with the cash out. I load my entire balance on second 12. Loseeeeee.

At this point I'm freaking out trying not to punch my laptop, swearing, screeching, replaying the last hour in my head, replaying all the big hands in my head that it took me to get there. Thinking about how three weeks ago I would have killed for that money. And then I check my cash out. Pending. Cancel it. Fire up roulette.

**** the details, I inevitably lose it all. I feel like my head is on fire, I'm dizzy, I want to ****ing die. I don't know why I want this written down, I just do. Like once how much of a ****ing loser I am is out there, it'll convince me to stop this ****. Just ****ing stop. I torch $23,000 in an hour lol. Most of it in half an hour.

I can't win. Even when I win, I lose. I keep telling myself if I somehow just grind or bink a tournament, or this, that. No. I'll never win in gambling ever again. I'm ****ed. **** all of this.

I have to work in the morning, but its 3:25 AM and I'm going to go into a gambling induced depression half coma.

You just nailed it.

[quote name="Dellp0ker624" post=48136613]I've read these stories and can totally relate to this degenerative life style.

Great so the first night the game fills up its a 1/2 nl game . So I wind up totally crushing everyone I win 1400 ! Great so I'm thinking great I'll pay for the vaca by playing here... Next night no game so I play bj I start small 10 dollars a hand ... Ten beers later And few hrs later I'm betting 100 a hand and occasionally firing table max 1000 a hand so I end up winning about a grand... It's such a rush betting table max and hitting... Next couple night go badly I lose all winning back and end up taking 2500 cash advance.... So I'm at the bj table the 4th night now stuck and steaming I'm down to two stacks of greens (1000) I bet it and get an 8/3 vs a 6 showing so I can't get any money but I can charge the 1000 to my room and get chips so I do that and I win the hand! Great but now I know I can get chips thru my room key and it goes on our bill! Great so I end up on the trip charging a total of 2500 to my fing room and losing about 4k of my own money.... Worst vacation ever ! Wife was super pissed cause the charges went to her credit card .... Definitely the last vacation she books that have any casinos involved.... It's just treacherous going on vacation and getting buried like that .... The last 2 days there I was dead broke and totally wanted to jump of the damn ship....

This is how ALL degens operate. <br />
They are DESTINED to lose. I apologize for any insults.<br />
I really feel like I wish I can cure the degen, it makes me so angry.<br />
I felt "tough love" might help, that's all.<br />
It is hard to read this stuff.<br />
<br />
First, it is very easy to be ahead. In the short run, EVERYONE is ahead at some point. <br />
That is the entire basis of a casino game, to suck people in. In the LONG RUN, is when everyone loses. Short run, anything can happen. <br />
You can be up $1000 from a starting bankroll of $50.<br />
<br />
Then the reaction. Jolt of energy?<br />
When a non-addict wins $20k, he is just calm and satisfied.<br />
This is why degens are better off killing themselves instead of gambling. <br />
Same outcome. I could literally give a degen $10,000,000 of free cash,<br />
and the degen would lose it ALL before 24 hours is up.<br />
A true sickness. A degen can go to $120k and NOT pay off his 4k debt.<br />
<br />
As for "keep it on red", I'm talking about Martingale.<br />
But, Degen will KEEP on double down until he loses.<br />
Just moves to bigger stakes. Like you.<br />
<br />
Another fascinating look into the mind of people who are such addicted zombies that they will implode their lives. I can literally give a degen $1,000,000 and they will turn it into $50,000,000,000 and then put it all on black until they lose it. <br />
<br />
The degen can never win any money at gambling.<br />
He will just keep playing until he loses everything.<br />
<br />
He can hit blackjack ONE THOUSAND TIMES IN A ROW.<br />
He now has the entire world's money supply.<br />
What does he do? Plays another hand with his entire stack!<br />
If he wins? He now has TWICE the world's money supply at the table !!!<br />
What does he do? Plays another hand with his entire stack!<br />
Ohhh, back to zero, AND he forgot to pay the rent while he had the entire world's money supply. <br />
It is actually safer to be married to a serial killer.<br />
<br />
This is the degen bankroll.<br />
<br />
<br />
Here's how it works.<br />
<br />
Degen will have a nice win at a casino.<br />
Normal people will go on with their lives.<br />
Degen brings that $750 back next weekend, <br />
along with his rent check and uncashed paycheck....<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $5,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $10,000.<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $10,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $20,000.<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $20,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $40,000.<br />
<br />
Now, degen starts using his advanced math skillz....<br />
The odds of 4 reds in a row are 1/16 or 6%<br />
But, red is HOT...so...<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $40,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $80,000.<br />
<br />
The odds of 5 reds in a row are 1/32 or 3%<br />
But, red is HOT...so...<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $80,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $160,000.<br />
<br />
Now, degen is smart. <br />
He's been gambling for years! <br />
This is his PROFESSION.<br />
He knows when to not push his luck, where others get sucked.<br />
The odds of 6 reds in a row are 1/64 or 1.5%<br />
<br />
But, degen is in that rare 1.5% of genuis psychic gamblers!!<br />
Where mere pussies would walk away, degen is going to RULE THE WORLD<br />
He will then put the entire $160,000 on Red.<br />
He will win. He now has $320,000.<br />
<br />
The odds of 7 reds in a row are 1/128 or under 1%<br />
Now, degen is smart. <br />
He's been gambling for years! <br />
This is his PROFESSION.<br />
Time to roll to black, like the genius James Bond he truly is!<br />
<br />
He will then put the entire $320,000 on Red.<br />
It comes red. He now has $0.<br />
Stupid table does't understand math!!<br />
The odds of 7 reds is like under 1%.<br />
<br />
BAD LUCK!<br />
Always BAD LUCK!<br />
<br />
Degen calls his mom so he can borrow $3 for a pizza for lunch.<br />
<br />
TL;DR: Don't ever go to a casino ever again, and your life will be better in every way.

The odds of 7 reds is like under 1%.<br />

BAD LUCK!<br />
Always BAD LUCK!<br />

It's standard. I can't tell you how many times I've gotten paid, say I have 1000 dollars, need to pay 400 in bills. 600 is mine. I'll gamble 200 and see what I can do, right? Lose the 200. Chase with the next 200 just to get even then I can go home. Down 400, get another 200 for some damage control, will leave if I get 100-150 back. Down 600. Now I'm broke for the week, but I still got my original 400 for bills. I'll take 100 of it to try to get some back. Lose that. 300 left, **** it I'm already in the hole might as well get out of this hole. Lose it all.

It's standard degen thinking. Only degens lose every single dollar. You get past the point of pain and it literally turns into "who cares at this point?"

I'm glad you don't understand. Keep it that way.

I've done the same. Lost hundreds of thousands in my lifetime. Sickening.

One time, dealer.

Re: Degen Stories....

Pits are waste time even if you can control what you lose it to much like crack

Try betting on sports that you like, put some money on live game TiVo and get more bang for ya buck, when bet think of it like entertainment that can pay for itself

Really don't know what talking about when comes pit games as don't play em

Understand how depressing be to be hooked on em.

Re: Degen Stories....

This happened during the most recent superbowl (patriots miracle comeback)

I had been running well during the playoffs winning about 150-200 a week. I know $160 isnt a big wager but thats what I had on the Pats -3. It was significant for me because I have bills to pay and was only working part time.

I get a solid pre-drink in while ive been in a $22 tournament for a couple hours and grinding up a stack. The game starts and its looking terrible right away, but I'm still building up a stack in the tournament so I'm not in the worst mood. Just keep guzzling booze and building a stack while watching the debacle of a game.

So we're approaching the bubble around the 2nd quarter and I'm losing my mind over the football game. I get into a hand maybe 5 spots from the money with the only guy at the table who has me covered. KK vs his QQ, we get it in on the 10 high flop and he binks the river.

2nd quarter ends, I'm so mad I say "**** Ladygaga" and decide to take the dog for a walk and maybe cool off some steam, but it was unlikely. Not only did I have money on the game but I'm a legit patriots fan and have followed the team since Brady's rookie season. I see one of those 'Slow down Children at Play' signs on someones lawn and decide to yell "HEY GOSTKOWSKI THIS IS HOW YOU KICK A FIELD GOAL" and punted it into their neighbours yard.

I make it back to my house without incident after this and its still half time. For some reason I buy into a $109 tournament and bust 3 hands in QQ vs AK.

The games on and the patriots are making the comeback. I think to myself if they some how win I can deposit again and be relatively even and be okay with it. So I put on $50 for live blackjack with the intention of playing $10 hands.

Things go decent at first im up to about 120. I lose a double down on 10 and hit 20, dealer drew a 5 card blackjack and this just sent me into a rage for some reason...probably the continuous flow of alcohol. I decide to bet $100 and bust.

Games still on and im wasted and still wanna gamble.

deposit another 50, 1 hand, gone

deposit 100, 1 hand, gone

deposit 200 1 hand, gone

deposit 150 1 hand, win, bet 300, gone

deposit 250 1 hand, gone.

Patriots win the superbowl, 312 1 hand, GONE.


I was pretty disgusted for weeks afterwards and self excluded myself from live casino games. Having to wake up for work the next day was the worst feeling and not cause I was hung over. I just kept thinking of how long it would take me to earn back what I lost.

TL;DR

I was mad that I thought the Patriots were going to lose as well as the money I bet on them. Proceed to lose around 1k trying to win the $300 I thought I wasn't going to win, then won it and lost it anyways. Also was so angry I couldn't enjoy the best superbowl ever.
