And of my posting on here and my last appearance on the show, what would make you think I'd expose any plays? =)

I'll lay 11 to 10 she wouldn't beat the ratings for Cocktail Doll.

Is Cocktail Doll still around? Does she still work at NYNY's prime shifts?

Romes, please talk about your opinion on Poker vs others (blackjack, slots, teams).

Overall, which would you prefer?

I play professional poker and recently come across other lucrative schemes. I thought easy money, no doubt, but every time I go in, I always have to expect to get banned soon or later. Or sometimes you have to look for a partner, helper, employee to maximize the scheme, but u never know if that person is trustworthy/competent or not.

With poker, solo, calm, no bans, however its such a grind. Hours (live), volume (online), downswing, Variance etc :)

Both definitely have their advantages and disadvantages. I'll add this to my list of possible topics =).

That would be an impossible bet to settle as we don’t have really good numbers on how many listeners we have. Over time, however, we have picked up more listeners and it is my best guess that in general the ratings are considerably higher today than they were five years ago, on February 16, 2012, which is when the Cocktail Doll episode was taped.

Dolly Wong, the webmaster of coctaildoll.com, is/was a friend of Shack’s. I wasn’t sure what a cocktail waitress would add to the show, but we go through guests quickly and I let him talk me into it. Shack was looking forward to going out for a drink with Dolly afterward to catch up. I didn't care about that one way or the other. Mike is married and I didn’t think it would turn out to be more than a drink --- but I didn’t ask detailed questions and I didn’t ask to be a third wheel.

When Dolly showed up, she brought her boy toy with her. This guy struck me as a “new guy,” because all through the interview Dolly and her beau had their hands all over each other. This had the effect of keeping her sexual hormones quite activated --- and that was evident in her her answers to some of the questions. It was a bit distracting to me --- and I suspect a bit disheartening to Mike because he realized his plans for taking Dolly out for a drink afterwards weren't going to be realized.

Aimee seems like a nice young lady – I haven't read her entire thread as that's not where my interest lies and I pick and choose which threads to read --- but that’s really not where the show is focused these days. I take seriously the pledge that you’ll know a bit more about advantage gambling after the show than you did before. Neither Richard nor I are cruising for 21-year-old girls --- and at this point in her life Aimee is essentially clueless about intelligent gambling --- so there’s really no reason for her to be on the air.

So while I think Shack’s bet would be a bad one --- simply because in general the show is much more popular than it was five years ago not to mention the lack of hard data --- he is also safe because Aimee isn’t coming on the air until she actually becomes a strong player and has something to teach us.

Although things could change, if somebody wanted to bet whether Aimee would ever be a guest on the show, the best bet now would be 'no.'

Aimee (if she is genuine) could be an interesting opportunity to demonstrate application of the knowledge shared on the show. Maybe do a "live" play-by-play broadcast of her "newbie" approach to a casino. How does someone with no background evaluate the various offerings in a casino? Have her pick games she finds attractive, and get her to explain why she thinks they are "good", then explain how she can select the best games, and play them to minimize the house edge or even get an advantage. Later, get an update, and her impressions of whether the advantage plays she learned from you made a difference.

There's an audience for this type of material, as folks are turning 21 everyday.

Answers in bold... didn't think these would make the show so thought I'd just answer them for you here. You're welcome.



Thanks romes. Bob should put these questions on the show, it's what the people want! I agree about the super bowl play, have no idea on the e.v of passing vs running on the 1.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.
