I apologize about screwing around with the GLBB thread. I'm just a goofball. And I would try to do it right but I think I have AADD. No, seriously my memory is slowly going and I can't seem to keep my mind on something for long. I'm a scatterbrain it seems.
Oh boy, time to come clean. If there's one thing Steves is, it's real - no matter how ridiculous it is.
Here's what happened here.
First, I got cleaned out at Betonline.
Then I decided to give Pokerstarspa another shot. I have some money now, how badly could it go?
HERE'S HOW BAD - 3k IN ONE FUKKIN WEEK. The site is ridiculous. I flop a set, opponent turns or rivers a set. Had a $900 pot where I flopped the Ace high flush and opponent (whom I had labeled as a fish) flops the straight flush - two cards to make it.
Steves is DONE with internet poker and from here on out will only play live - where he is a proven winner.
Stevie, I feel for you. Know you didn't expect on losing that much but maybe a real plan would have been good. Like if serious putting aside 2K to lose and going to Vegas. I would think Spirit has $250 round trip deals and RC would know better about $50 hotels where all you want from them is to get some sleep. Same with food figuring you might get better food and cheaper than Wow market. If things work out and you get most of that money back, then you're a Player and if still not working maybe try your hand face-to-face in Vegas to see if it's in you.
Hear you Stevie that's why you have a set amount to lose and self-control if that's you choice to give it a shot. I would think RC could give you plenty of heads up advice on Vegas so you don't arrive at a disadvantage. Best advice I could give you if I went to Vegas or anywhere foreign to me, TRUST NOTHING THAT MOVES!
I'm sure you could find cheap rooms, but food is not cheap anywhere near the strip. Of course poker rooms will comp you $1 an hour, which doesn't mean much when a sandwich is $17.
There are many options though, and with a little good sense and discipline you can find a routine that works for you.
