Online Poker in NJ Update

I still can't play on any of the legal sites in New Jersey.  Looks like another cluster fuck of an I.T. roll out.  Reminds me of the Obamacare website.  So far have sent 10 emails to support with no luck.  Now I am being told Time Warner routes all it's Internet traffic through New York City so that is the problem.  Sigh... I waited this long so can wait some more.  In the mean time I am still playing on the over seas sites.  Good luck at the tables.  Tony

NJ Online Poker

So far it's a bust.  The Geo-location isn't working so most people can't play.  I have email into support to fix the issue but who knows how long it will take.  Oh well like most things with IT short term pain is for long term gain.  Hopefully I will be able to crush the sometime soon.  Thanks for reading and good luck at the tables.  Tony

Ebook Progress

Finally making some progress on editing my book. Here is an old unedited excerpt from it.  Enjoy Tony

Tommy Tootoria was having a bad week and he was in a foul mood.  Just hearing the name makes my skin crawl up!  Tommy lived in a suburb of Atlantic City called Absecon, where I happen to live in also.  It is a small town with some really nice expensive sections and some cheap ones filled with motels on Route 35, which is the area I happen to live in.  Tourists/Gamblers use these motels to avoid paying $200 plus a night to stay in an actual Casino.  Unless of course you are a high roller/big spender who gets their rooms comped, paid for by the casino.  Of course if that’s the case you most likely lose 10 times the price of the room in order to qualify for it for free.  Worse yet many of the motels in Absecon are paid for on a monthly rate by down and out gamblers.  Also some are used to deal drugs or by prostitutes to conduct their “business”.  So Absecon is a real contradiction in status.  On the one side of town you have $1.5 million plus houses and on the other side you have roach motels.  Back to Tommy, he’s a vice president of a company that got the contract to pick up Atlantic City’s garbage.  The contract was huge for $26 million a year and companies fight for a chance to win it.  You have to wonder why everyone wants the contract being garbage pickup is done all by Union workers some of which can’t be fired and make over 100K a year!  Not bad for unskilled labor.   So Tommy’s Company won the contract and on the surface it looked like he was on top of the world, just rolling in the dough.  Behind the scenes things for Tommy were anything but great.  In the previous football season he got totally beaten down.   Losing a huge sum of money for the last 8 weeks straight of the regular NFL season.  Then he chased his loses trying to make it back in the playoffs, only to fall deeper into a hole.  The Super Bowl was no better when a last second Interception caused his team to not cover the spread by a single point.  That point put Tommy so deep into the hole that his house or life might be lost to the bookies.  Of course he owed the money to one of the biggest mobsters in Atlantic City, NJ, and actually the whole country.  The head of the Bubouts family the infamous Vinny!  Indicted for every crime you can think of including 4 murders but none of them have ever stuck to him.  Maybe it’s because the witnesses always had a way of changing their minds or disappearing at very opportune times.   Tommy was in serious trouble the kind that your body could end up deep in the New Jersey Pine barons to maybe never be found again.  He could end up like Jimmy Hoffa, rumored to be buried in cement under Giants Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey, but only the people responsible for his disappearance know for sure

Limit Holdem

Oh my I had forgotten how frustrating Limit HE could be.  This morning aver bad beat thing happened to me in one session playing 6 handed.  Best hand I had was J-7 of spades on a 2 spade Jack high flop.  We got in 5 bets on the flop heads up.  I was against J-7 off and we split the pot, so I lost money on it, the rake!  That is the way the day is going.  Anyway I am back at it again now.  Good luck at the tables.  Tony

Saturday Poker

Today is Saturday so I am once again playing turbo Sit-N-Gos on Carbon Poker.  It's a slow grind to build up a roll but someone has to do it.  Just shoved with A-J suited and lost to A-3 off.  Of well time to buy in for another one.  These micros can be real frustrating.  Good luck at the tables.  Tony
