Subject: My road trip
Those that want to try and get together during my road trip should send me
an e-mail.
Dan and Alan come to mind. Razzo maybe this tiime we will get together.
I will carry a cell phone this time (which I hate doing :) )

Just found out my son is coming over on the 6th so I will not be hitting
the road until sometime after 10th.
I am still planing on hitting Vegas, LA, Reno, bay area and maybe San
Diego.

I still would like input on what is going on in Reno and the bay area if
anyone knows.
Following is what I would consider dream games:
Holdem limit 15-30 20-40 30-60 75-150
Holdem and omaha pot limit 5-10 10-25 and 15-30 which is very rare these
days
Omaha hi/lo limit same as holdem limit prefer 30-60 and 75-150
omaha pot limt almost any game up to 25-50 blinds nothing lower than 5-10
Would love to find a dealer choice or holdem omaha mixed pot limit game
5-10 to 15-30
Stud hi/lo or stud hi only 15-30 or 30-60 for some reason I hate 20-40
stud not really sure why.
If I dust the rust off my game I of course would start looking at the
100-200 to the 300-600 limit games but I have not been on the road for
some time so I really don't plan on playing higher than 75-150.

This trip will be a real test for my body. I have not really been on the
road since my bypass. My bypass is not really my concern the "AS" I have
is/ I just don't know if I can control the pain and not effect my play at
the same time.

Hi Arlo,

Sounds like fun. You might have a hard time finding limits like that in
Reno. I know the Peppermill spreads a 10/20 lhe game. There are some
casinos, like the JA Nugget, that I almost never go to, but I think they
had a 5/10 lhe game the last time I went there (which was when I first
moved here). If you need directions or any help with anything Reno, just
email me and I'll be glad to help.

Have fun.

The news for Reno isn't exciting and from what I hear, not worth a
trip. Straight from a guy who plays for survival there.

If I discover Reno does not have any games I am interested in I will nor
go there.

Thanks for the info.

__Theoretically, Arlo, If someone were planning the trip you described, what
kind of bankroll would be necessary?

NO real idea. If I dont win the first day I plan on robbing a bank or two
:)

But really not as much as one might think. Clearly if you are not wining
you would play the lower limits until you started to win again.

For me I feel very comfortable buying into a 75-150 game for 2500 to 5000
a 30-60 game for 2000 (most time I will start with 1K and make one rebuy)
If I blow that I consider I am playing bad that day and call it a day.
For most 5-10 pot limit games if I get stuck 1K I am done for the day.

I hate big swings and I am also pretty picky about what games I play in
when I am out to make money. If I dont like the game I dont play period.
That is one reason you see 4 towns on my list. I do not need to play just
to play. This trip I am looking to make money.

I will be treating this trips games just like I did when I was playing for
a living. 90% is based on game selection.

And to try to answer you question if I get stuck 10K I will be very pissed
off at myself
