The font is difficult to read with ease. Notice the font on this forum, much bolder and thicker. On the blog it seems like a grey'ish color or like the font is thin, giving it little contrast to the background -- making it tough to read.

Look, casinos look at what you win or lose, nothing else.

I've never been sure why it helps to have
other AP's know what you know, how
that helps you in some way. Unless you
want them as partners, loose lips sink
ships. There's a lot of ego involved in
AP, keeping your mouth shut is a big
advantage. Lord knows I had as big
a mouth as anybody, not anymore.
I'm quieter than a church mouse on
the subject the last few years.

Publicly I agree, you should be spreading TMI. But since us mear mortal AP's can't beat -EV games using a betting system("like you can on roulette") we have to find mathematical +EV plays. Since the casinos are not too gung-ho about giving AP's money, we have to search, scout and find plays. You can't be everywhere at once and find everything.

Sometimes the casino's tolerance is big enough that you CAN share with others. In turn, they share with you. in the end, everyone involved makes more money because of this. Obviously, if you share too manny plays with too many people it's game over. There's always the chance you share with someone, who shares it with the wrong person, who will do something really dumb. There's a balancing act involved. Most seasoned and even many new AP's know what they can and should share and what they need to keep to themselves.

Never ever said I have a betting system
that beats anything. Betting systems don't
work. Period.

I'm talking more about the sharing with the
general public and casinos, like blogs do.
Casinos are more interested in AP blogs
than players will ever be. I don't see the
point of keeping them constantly updated,
where's the advantage play in that.

Love the "mere mortals" phrase Axel.

Wonder what would happen if WoV people encouraged the proliferation & discussion of -EV tactics... :-)
More camouflage for +EV conversation.

Personally I was quite surprised in 2014-2016 to find anyone discussing non-defunct machine plays (especially on non-back channels).
In 2010, I don't recall any on-line discussion...perhaps I simply didn't look hard enough.

Internet has changed quit a lot since 1969. Surprising how much more information appears every 5 years.

Way TOO much info has been spread by incompetents looking for partners.

...it's how I originally learned a lot of "plays" in Las Vegas (from people too broke to do the plays themselves).

...and still happens a lot from certain blabbermouths who often run out of cash, and drag newbies with cash to "plays".

Another person retired in the 1970s (via poker), and does UX for fun (almost no other games). Very low 5-figures each year.
He likes to have 200-300 day winning streaks, so doesn't like more volatile games.
His money is not invested in the stock market, but in fixed income, because he doesn't want the risk.
No poker. No blackjack.

I assume this means he uses a players card while vulturing? Seems like a good way to 1) let the casino know you are grinding out small profits and 2) reduce offers by lowering coin in.

Who wants points or mercy? It just seems that the people who don't gamble at casinos know so much more about it. Nobody has to figure anyone out to arrive at this.

Sorry, Axel, a bunch of lonely (older male) people are still lonely. They live their lonely lives out on internet forums.
Believers are the ones who keep at it long after they've been told it can't be done. On the other hand, the real experts shouldn't care about the crackpots. But, if the wrong answer begs the question, then the wrong question begs the answer.
