I was going to write a long post entailing what just happened to me, but I need to curl up in the fetal position and sleep it off so I'll just hit the high points. For the second time this week I got picked up from the 40 literally minutes before my shift was to end (earlier this week the floorman got me by less than 5 seconds; my blind was out and if I took it I was safe), so I headed to LA's friendliest. I arrived at 4:15, waited until 4:45, got a 40 seat, didn't post, got a 60 seat in a must move game from 20th on the list, lost almost a rack in 30 minutes, got buttoned, and the game broke. So I got a 40 seat in a must move game, in which I played for about 45 minutes, lost a rack and a half (including KK < QQ on JT4-9-8 and red AA < KTdd on 943ddd to the same player in the same orbit), managed not to get buttoned, and the game broke. So it's 6:45pm, I've been in the room 2.5 hours, have lost about $3000 and have broken game status in both the 60 AND the 40. That's got to be a difficult feat to achieve, really it does. Eventually I got my 40 seat, played a lap, then got a seat in the main 60 which was amazing and lost another rack and a half in 2 hours, bringing the total damage up near the $6000 mark. All this after basically quitting my shift not sure if I was up or down.
