    Confession: I have avoided my own site for the past week because Marty keeps winning tournaments

    Marty figured it out, so I guess it's time to come clean.

    I couldn't stand his repeated success, while I am relegated to being an irrelevant limit holdem robotron player. There's no glory in that.

    So in order to keep myself from plunging into a fit of depression, I just spent very minimal time on this site for the past week.

    That's also the reason I canceled radio, as I knew people would call and harass me to talk about Marty's success.

     

    Okay, there may have been another small factor.

    I took a vacation to New Orleans, Miami, and Key West.

    Much of this was done through my recent credit card bonus whoring, though I also coughed up a fair amount of Jew Gold for nice meals and other miscellaneous stuff.

    I finally made it out to the "ruins" of Katrina, nearly 10 years later. Neighborhood (Lower 9th Ward) has recovered a lot, and the only evidence of what occurred is several vacant lots where houses once stood, as well as some vacant or destroyed structures. But it isn't the disaster area you might expect. The "ruins" of Detroit were much more dramatic.

    Went on an airboat in the Everglades. I've done it before, but it was still fun/interesting. Benjamin and his mom were on this trip, as well. Our day in Key West got ruined by a persistent rain storm. However, we've ran REALLY well with weather on all of our vacations, so this was bound to happen at some point. The rest of the weather on the trip was good.

    One day I'll make it out to Dry Tortugas National Park off Key West. Looks really cool, but it's a pain in the ass to get there (70 mile ferry ride each way).

    Key West itself is a pain-in-the-ass drive -- a slow 160 miles from Miami.

    Had a moment of frustration when some Cubans backed into my rental car in Miami Beach. Was sure I was going to go through the whole hassle of an accident with a rental car (plus proving it was their fault), but amazingly there was no damage to either car other than a few scratches. Rental companies don't give a shit about scratches unless they are of a certain size (they actually tell you this), and these weren't big enough to matter. The Cubans were thrilled to just drive away and not exchange info. They kept begging me to just "let it go". I wonder if they weren't licensed or insured. They got lucky that it was a rental and I only gave a shit if it was enough damage to charge me.

    Stayed at Harrah's New Orleans for the first 3 nights. Finally made it out to Cafe Du Monde for some beignets, which Benjamin loved.

    Also tried Emeril's new NOLA restaurant on the first night, which was pretty good.

    We all saw armadillos for the first time, in New Orleans. They don't live in the western US.

    Harrah's New Orleans is apparently cheaping out on their limo service. They have gone from having alcohol in the limo, to just soft drinks and water, to now just water. Gotta save those pennies!

    It's actually a nice hotel, though. Definitely the best of all the Harrah's, and on par with the three Caesars brand properties.

    Radio will return on February 10. I am posting this from the airplane right now. Don't bother cockbombing the site, because I'll be on here while flying.

    I am rebroadcasting the internet I purchased, so Ben's mom can also use it. I should resell the connection to others here at a discount.

    Does this thread mean the end of Tyde's success?
    Businesses that make money by collecting & selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.

    I once met Quinton Rampage Jackson at that Harrah's.

    Did you make it to the Joint for BBQ? That place is seriously great.

    No, the pompous douchebag is the guy who wins a few tournaments, thinks he's suddenly an A-List poker pro, and keeps taunting me about my absence on the site for the past week.

    I honestly don't give a shit if you win or lose. I am not rooting for your success or failure. That's the honest truth. I won't be sad if you fail miserably, but I also won't be sad if you enjoy great success. I only wish failure upon those I truly hate, and you're not one of those people, despite your best attempts to repeatedly troll me on my own site.

    So you've won 37k recently. That's great. There are some good pieces of advice in your most recent thread, and I suggest you follow them.

    Some people think that I'm frustrated to read about your recent winnings. Not true. I find the whole thing surprising and amusing, but I'm not at all angry or frustrated. Good for you, and I mean that. However, this will be your first test in a long time as to whether or not you can be a responsible adult, so I guess we'll see what happens over the next 6 months or so.

    Talk about yearning for validation. At least Jewdonk won't kill anyone.

    I didn't. Maybe I'll hit it next time.

    Basically looked up 3 restaurants on Tripadvisor that were well regarded, and went to those. All three of them were good.

    Oh, I totally left out a LOL story regarding me getting two people ejected from Harrah's.

    I was playing video poker (5-play $1/credit 16-10 Deuces Wild Video Poker, which has a 99.74% return), and there were two women in their early 50s sitting a few machines away. They looked like sisters.

    Anyway, things were quiet for awhile, but suddenly the sister who wasn't playing started freaking out.

    "It's not here. It's not fucking in here!", she said in a voice that was inappropriately loud for a public setting. She was gesturing to her purse.

    The other one told her to look again, and the first one snapped, "I told you it's not fucking in here. It's not fucking in here. It is not in fucking here!"

    The second sister tried to calm her down, but things just got worse.

    "Fuck! Fuck! It's not fucking in here. It's not fucking in here!! It's not fucking in here!"

    She must have screamed "It's not fucking in here" about 20 times in about 2 minutes.

    Amazingly, security did not approach them. It was tilting for me to play this way, and unlike Jacks or Better, Deuces Wild games require some degree of concentration.

    I decided to let this cool down on its own, rather than start a confrontation.

    But it worsened.

    "It's... not... fucking... in... here!!!!", she continued, slamming her purse repeatedly against the video poker machine, making a loud banging sound.

    She continued with this, banging her purse, cursing the same thing over and over, and I was seconds away from telling her to STFU or GTFO.

    Right then, a security guard arrived, though he didn't see her banging her purse on the machine.

    He asked what was wrong. The calm sister told him that they lost their keys, and were just attempting to look for them. He told them that they have to be quieter, and she replied, "Oh, I'm sorry, we are just trying to find our keys. Nothing's wrong over here."

    At this point I decided to speak up. Something was very wrong, and this crap was going to continue once the security guard left.

    I told the guard exactly what had been happening. Another woman, who was playing on the other side of the sisters, finally piped up, and said, "I totally agree. I can't play like this. She's crazy. I've been shaking the whole time."

    The calm sister kept trying to lie and claim we were exaggerating, but I wasn't having any of it, and kept repeating that she was cursing loudly and banging on the machines.

    The guard told them that they had to be quiet, or they would have to leave the property. He then walked off. A few seconds later, the calm sister said, "I'll be right back", and also walked off.

    The crazy one started staring at me with a psychotic look in her eyes. She was clearly pissed that I ratted her out, and I was wondering what she would do. I honestly wasn't sure if she was going to start attacking me, such as hitting me with her purse. I was watching out of the corner of my eye and was ready to throw an elbow in her face if she attempted to physically attack me.

    Instead, she watched me play a hand of video poker, and I bricked it with no payout. She then started chanting, "Lose! Lose! Lose! Lose!"

    Obviously this wasn't going to stand, so I called the security guard back over and told him what was happening. Right then, her sister returned, and he told them both that they would have to go elsewhere in the casino, and they were no longer allowed to play on this bank of machines.

    Was it over?

    Nope!

    About 15 minutes later, they showed back up, and the calm sister said, "I think I want to play THIS machine", and sat right next to me. The crazy sister sat on the other side of her.

    The crazy one then thought she was clever, saying out loud, "Well, I hope we don't Lose-Lose-Lose at this machine! Lose!"

    I stood up and looked for security, and they were nowhere to be found.

    I called for security, and nobody came.

    I kept calling, and no security showed up!

    WTF?

    What kind of casino has a customer calling for security, and nobody comes? In Vegas they would have been there in 30 seconds.

    About 10 minutes passed, and I was getting close to cashing out of the machine, getting my shit together, and finding security myself.

    Finally a guard strolled over, though it was a different one than before. I explained everything that was happening. The woman on the other side also complained, backing up everything I said. The calm sister tried to lie and said that everything was fine, and that they had simply been looking for their keys. I kept asking her, "Why are you lying? Are you saying that there was no cursing? No banging on the machine? It's all on camera. If you're going to lie, they can pull this up and see the truth, and you'll get banned here for good."

    She wouldn't answer me, but just kept repeating that there hadn't been a problem, and that they were just looking for their keys.

    The other woman was getting really pissed, threatening to take her action elsewhere if these two weren't ejected.

    Finally the guard told the two sisters that they had to go home. They got agitated, argued about this for about 5 minutes, and the crazy one said that her husband is a Seven Stars and would get the guard in trouble for doing this. I piped up, "If that happens, feel free to have your boss contact me and I'll back everything up. And I'm sure that other woman over there will, too."

    The guard got tired of the arguing, and finally told the two sisters, "You either need to walk out of here right now on your own, or we will escort you out. Which one will it be?"

    So they left, and again shouted how they would be contacting their host and getting the guard in trouble.

    What a clusterfuck.

    Oh, and as a postscript to the story, the other woman profusely thanked me for getting involved and pushing for those two to be ejected. She kept repeating how scared she was, since that one sister seemed so crazy and was slamming her purse against the machine.

    Eventually she called her husband and had him come down and sit with her, and he also thanked me for helping put an end to the situation.

    She told me that she was married into the Fertitta family (owners of Station Casinos), so her husband was obviously related to them in some way.

    I didn't mention anything about how much I had talked about the failure and mismanagement of Ultimate Poker.

    you fucking toolbag

    I don't recall ever 'boasting' or bragging about my wins other than posting screen shots of the final leader-boards

    standard Rainman to suggest otherwise

    also I don't recall suggesting I was some 'A list' pro....that's all you trying to spin everything as usual

    I'm proud of what I accomplished, but I haven't been running around bragging about it.

    you on the other hand are such a self absorbed attention whore that you needed to start this faggot ass thread

    oh and by the way...

    your trip reports suck huge cock

    Well, I could have exaggerated the details and bragged about going nose-to-nose with a group of tough looking Mexican gangbangers, but I'll leave that stuff to you, and stick to reporting the truth.

    Okay, there may have been another small factor.

    I took a vacation to New Orleans, Miami, and Key West.

    Much of this was done through my recent credit card bonus whoring, though I also coughed up a fair amount of Jew Gold for nice meals and other miscellaneous stuff.

    I finally made it out to the "ruins" of Katrina, nearly 10 years later. Neighborhood (Lower 9th Ward) has recovered a lot, and the only evidence of what occurred is several vacant lots where houses once stood, as well as some vacant or destroyed structures. But it isn't the disaster area you might expect. The "ruins" of Detroit were much more dramatic.

    Went on an airboat in the Everglades. I've done it before, but it was still fun/interesting. Benjamin and his mom were on this trip, as well. Our day in Key West got ruined by a persistent rain storm. However, we've ran REALLY well with weather on all of our vacations, so this was bound to happen at some point. The rest of the weather on the trip was good.

    One day I'll make it out to Dry Tortugas National Park off Key West. Looks really cool, but it's a pain in the ass to get there (70 mile ferry ride each way).

    Key West itself is a pain-in-the-ass drive -- a slow 160 miles from Miami.

    Had a moment of frustration when some Cubans backed into my rental car in Miami Beach. Was sure I was going to go through the whole hassle of an accident with a rental car (plus proving it was their fault), but amazingly there was no damage to either car other than a few scratches. Rental companies don't give a shit about scratches unless they are of a certain size (they actually tell you this), and these weren't big enough to matter. The Cubans were thrilled to just drive away and not exchange info. They kept begging me to just "let it go". I wonder if they weren't licensed or insured. They got lucky that it was a rental and I only gave a shit if it was enough damage to charge me.

    Stayed at Harrah's New Orleans for the first 3 nights. Finally made it out to Cafe Du Monde for some beignets, which Benjamin loved.

    Also tried Emeril's new NOLA restaurant on the first night, which was pretty good.

    We all saw armadillos for the first time, in New Orleans. They don't live in the western US.

    Harrah's New Orleans is apparently cheaping out on their limo service. They have gone from having alcohol in the limo, to just soft drinks and water, to now just water. Gotta save those pennies!

    It's actually a nice hotel, though. Definitely the best of all the Harrah's, and on par with the three Caesars brand properties.

    Radio will return on February 10. I am posting this from the airplane right now. Don't bother cockbombing the site, because I'll be on here while flying.

    I am rebroadcasting the internet I purchased, so Ben's mom can also use it. I should resell the connection to others here at a discount.
