That's pretty weak, might as well just call it by its other name, "The Cancellation System," if that is the case. Defeats the entire purpose of having a cool name.

At least there is still the D'Alembert, which still ends like, "Hair," just without the rolled r.

Not sure what he meant with that one. Cat turned coconut?



Crazy. Not quite sure how it's derived though.

Coco-"nuts" ? Cuckoo - nuts? Who knows.

True, please excuse me. I believe the second to last e with the accent and a silent re make the pronunciation of the system, "LA-BOO-SHAY," would you agree with that?

I really shouldn't attempt to speak to the French grammar structure, it's been over twelve years since my last French class...

After reading those quotes and thinking about it, it just seems like there is a similarity between soxfan and varmenti. Maybe varmenti is soxfan who did post some of his ideas and got killed for it of course. So now we bash varmenti and soxfan can still be anonymous. Or maybe they play at the same casino and know each other?

so if he is not varmenti then I am going to guess that he is using multiple types of betting schemes and only makes a wager when the next hand has all of them overlapping. That last sentence makes sense in my head but I don't know how to put it in words.



I will say emphatically, that I am not that varmenti cat. I've posted on various gambling forums over the years and I think most will say I'm a laid back cat and a straight shooter. And, I've never posted under any handle, other than the soxfan, hey hey.

So without the accent over the e, then I was wrong when I wrote Mission is a pusse .

I guess I don't really care If Soxfan can beat baccarat or not, I have not found him to be to pushy about it. he is an interesting character/cat and I have come to like him and his Hey Hey!

He sees to have a sense of humor as well.

If you suspend Axel for every typo you will need another 4 mods to handle the extra workload.
