The blogger is a grinder who lives in Vegas and is trying to build up his bankroll and just quite frankly, survive, living out of rooms at the IP or wherever, as he has to move every five days or so. Imagine living out of a hotel room long term. Doing laundry or getting a haircut isn't as matter of fact when you're living out of the IP.
So of course the blog is about his trials and tribulations at the poker table (which I obv love) but it's also about his personal struggles. He's autistic, he's trying to find a girl friend, he seems quite afraid of being robbed, oh and I think personal hygiene might fall into this category as well. :) Honesty is very fascinating to me.
When I started reading (mebbe a week and a half ago) Tony, had a bankroll of $9,800, and he wrote about how he was too afraid (I don't know that "afraid" is necessarily the right word, apprehensive maybe) to move up to $2-5 NL as well as to play any tournaments in the $200 range. "Really?" I thought. "With that kind of bankroll?" Obv, I had to leave
Unfortunately, he's now down to $6,600 according to his blog, TBC's Blog About Grinding blah blah blah and according to his tweets he may be down to $5,500 now. He lost the lion's share of this playing what I think is video black jack. OMFG Yep, those machines, which he thinks/thought he could beat. I detest any kind of machines, whether they are slots/black jack whatever. They are designed for the house, not for the player! You can rest assured I gave him my opinion about playing machines. Erm, I dunno if I should've.
That's when he replied saying maybe he should move from Vegas to the East Coast so we could hang out and play poker. (!) Uh, oh! (Hi Duggle!)
And then the comment after that was "I can fix you up with that blogger babe" or some shiat like that, written by my BFF Lightning36. The biatch! The stalker biatch is more like it. I swear he hunts me down and finds me. And yes Lighting, I'm saving all your texts to show the police for the restraining order. :)
I am anxiously awaiting the next installment on Tony's blog. I so hope he's won a little money back, or at least hasn't busted. I think he's quite tilty at the moment, which makes for an interesting blog, but I'd rather him have a boring one and a big bank roll.
Play smart Tony!
