That's great advice. Leave a game that he can win at long term for one he can't.

According to WatchMeWin, with some positive thinking/attitude and good karma you can beat craps.

You forget to add my most important equation... DMK=HPS And I dont think just having good karma or positive attitude can bring winnings to the table... but I will say that rhythm and flow on the dice table is a real factor... and yes, negative energy on a slow moving crowded table , in my 20 year experience of playing dice on an average of 3x a week (ive probably seen over 2 million rolls live) I believe it does inexplicably have some affect. You can see it, hear it, taste it, feel it, or smell it... but energy is real. And having the discipline to hit and run is imperative. Its worked for me anyway. Whether it is a huge coincidence repeatedly or not, I cant believe that it is... and I am typically a skeptic and a rational person. Anyway, it is what it is. gl in your gaming, as always.

I dont think they rig the dice as they have too much to lose if it were exploited.... but then again, where there is BIG money, I never say never to anything. ha

I found a herd (is a group of unicorns called a herd?) of real live unicorns yesterday. Would anyone like to buy one? I'll sell them real cheap too. They might look like a dead horse with a spike shoved through their heads but I promise they are living unicorns.

btw, I was at Harrahs a few weeks ago. I walked up to the always crowded table and watch a guy scream and yell at everyone including the dealers... and not in a good way. There was 7 out after 7 out after 7 out. I stayed away and just watched with amazement. Finally, he busted out and left the table. I waited a few minutes then jumped in. I hit a few numbers and went off... and repeated a couple of times. Made about 50% on my money. From the corner of my eye, I could see that same negative bastard running back to the table with some more money.. he couldnt wait to f!#/ things up. He threw his money on the table.. I went off and down. You can guess what happened next.. 7 out right away. Then 3 more 7 outs right away. I didnt stay around to watch any more but I can assure you that he brought bad vibes and bad energy to the table... for what its worth.

...I got no one to check me out anyway, you guys make it seem like it's easy finding an AP that lives next to you. You make it seem like there's AP's right when you step outside across the street...

This is what shows your youth/inexperience, and clearly one of your larger weaknesses as a person. Absolutely nothing is impossible. If you really want something to happen, you absolutely CAN make it happen. If you weren't so convinced you were playing so perfectly, then you'd be OPEN to the idea of dotting all of your i's and crossing all of your t's and getting checked out by someone qualified. If you wanted to go that route you could literally post a thread with an offer and more than likely get taken up by more than one AP. If you wanted to get checked out you could sign up for an advanced boot camp with BJA and meet A BUNCH of skilled AP's and get checked out by MULTIPLE qualified counters... but you don't want to. You are being closed minded about the possibility that you're not playing perfect. And maybe you are playing well enough, but I guarantee you're not playing as perfectly as you think you are. No one does. That was a tough pill for me to swallow a while back too, because everything I do I strive to do it 100% perfectly... Part of growing as a person is being able to be open minded to all possibilities, no matter how silly they may sound or how hard they are to believe. If you don't have hard proof one way or another, then BOTH possibilities are possible. Since you've never been checked out by a qualified counter, I 100% believe you could be counting perfect, and 100% believe you could be counting and playing like complete sh*t. You have no proof either way.

Same goes for Vegas. If you really wanted to make it happen, you'd make it happen. As someone else said, if $45k isn't enough, $55k won't be enough either. You HAD $50k a week ago... then lost ~$4k playing. Why were you playing still? Why didn't you pick up and move to Vegas with your $50k? If you wanted to move out there right now and play you could/would. You have enough of a bank and you could get a part time job and you could try to work for other AP teams (expanding your knowledge and EV in the process)... but you don't want to. You want to stay in the place you're in, and complain about being down 1 damn deviation... I thought you were down like 2.5 SD's. 1SD is basic, expected, and completely normal. If you can't handle 1SD, you're not cut out for counting.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

When I posted on Ken Smith's board, I got a lot of help from APs. One invited me to a casino I didn't frequent, sat at the table with me and over lunch an hour later pointed out a flaw in my game I was completely unaware of.
Somewhere along the way, I've lost the desire to play cards for hours several days a week. Ten years ago, there was little I enjoyed more than playing for hours on end. I only mention it because without a backup plan in place, I'd be up a creek...
