Was it crashed and burned by AP's? What's the story, do U care to share?



I think it just didn't get played and they took it out.

Beets are underrated. This has been a hot topic of discussion in my circles lately.

If a restaurant has a beet salad, I'll almost always order it.



I agree 100%. I love beets and will order a beet salad every chance I get.

On a related topic, I don't get why Americans are so big on lettuce salads. Have you ever tried eating straight lettuce? It doesn't taste like anything. Sure, the texture in your mouth feels like any crunchy but the taste is almost a big zero. I think what people really like is all the fattening stuff they put on the salad.

The lettuce provides the excuse to eat the bad stuff. Best of all the lettuce doesn't interfere with the wonderful tasty "bad stuff".

As long as it is not a bad beet salad....

Don't know why people were making off-topic posts about beets even though they were interesting. Seems Miscellaneous would be a better thread.

Was sure surprised as all get out to see PaiGowDan making an off topic post until I finally realized that it was a play on a poker term and therefore one of them pun thingies. Usually humor is about as much beyond me as math is.

Eating lettuces burns more calories than what it provides.

Jumping back on topic, Baccarat as offered in the UK is far superior than any other territory.

First you have the Fortune8 as offered by the Gentings chain. Grosvenor offered a smaller bonus starting at a Banker 6 streak (£50) [no additional side wager required]. All casinos in the UK pay 9-1 for the Tie bet, as well as offering Super Egalite or UR way Egalite. £5 on a Tie on #2 returns over £1000, as long as the odds seem, I've seen that hit many many times.

Some of you might remember that before I came up with my Poker For Roulette idea, I has a simpler concept called Hit It Again.

Banker Streak reminds me A LOT of Hit It Again.

The problems I had with Hit It Again are the same as some of the 'features' of Banker Streak. Namely:

- You could win more using a simple pressing strategy.
- If you use the pressing strategy, you'd hit the table max.

The table max is there for a reason. That same reason is one of the things that killed Hit It Again.

- The potential for a big jackpot award.

OK. The jackpot for Hit It Again was MUCH higher than for Banker Streak. I was told that the jackpot would kill the idea because (get this) casinos don't like letting go of large sums of money all at once.

Of course, I was told that before the introduction of the $1Million prize for a six card royal flush.

But I digress.

I think the pay tables are simple too unattractive and should include some type of payout for 2 in a row.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

"Hit It Again" is a great name. You should consider trademarking it.
