Not controversial to be gambling that much. You know the controversy, if you want to call it that, is that the great majority here do not believe that you are winning at baccarat. My disbelief was that someone purports to have millions tied up in one stock play. Unless worth a hundred times that. Or really foolish.

Wow, SOOPOO that's cookin'! I made 80-some free throws in a row a couple of times, but I can't even make an NBA three. And 25 consecutive college threes is awesome.

To the task at hand -- look, ladies and gentlemen, the math is the math. Baccarat, like blackjack, is a solved game. If people have accrued winnings at a negative game due to variance or God's blessing -- more power to them. Saying that one HAS WON is one thing. Saying that one will win going forward or that one can teach others is something else entirely.

Think about a lottery winner who might decide to entertain people with high roller pics and stories and slightly braggadocio narratives. No real math issues there. But if that same person were to introduce the "flow of numbers" as the reason they won the lottery, and suggested they would win going forward and could mentor others, then questions would arise. And doubts. And challenges.

please forgive my indecision as to whether the Boz quote you used is:

1) Present continuous tense, which is used to describe an action going on, goes on and will go on, or
2) Present perfect continuous tense, which is used to describe an action started earlier and still going.



You are forgiven. Here's the quote...

Quote: Boz

Everyone of us on here understands he isnít beating the casinos and getting comped trip after trip.



I'm going with #2...present perfect continuous tense.

Boz is describing an action started earlier (beating the casinos and getting comped) and still going on.

Quote: redietz

The questions regarding MDawg have very little to do with whether he HAS (past tense) won



It's clear that Boz is talking about both the past and present.

Boz suggests that beating the casinos and getting comped are mutually exclusive, it can be one or the other but not both.

He understands that MDawg has not both beaten the casinos and gotten comped, so if MDawg is getting comped then Boz is questioning whether MDawg HAS won.

Here's another member whose opinion on the question of whether or not MDawg has won is more straightforward...

I donít believe he is a long term winner

Isn't there a rule against quoting only part of what someone says if it mischaracterizes the post? Or does DRich not know what the word facetious means?

From my understanding you're supposed to quote a complete sentence and that's it. I think it depends on the situation,(context matters). If you short quote someone in order to shame, insult or offend them then that's where there's a problem.

If you were to say, "Axel do you have any crack, I really need to get my fix on?"

I don't believe there would be an issue if I just quoted "Axel do you have any crack"
And just simply replied, "NO, I don't do crack!"

Getting markers at 21-22 raises some questions.

Just add that to the long list.

Itís possible that the casino could see, even at the young age of 22, that they had a baccarat prodigy on their hands. Perhaps he was already adept at reading card flow.

Loaning him money via markers was therefore not a risk, since he wasnít going to ever lose it.

MDawg.

This looks to me like

1. Michael99000 is the one living rent free in your head.

2. This is an attempt at doxxing, which we suspend for, but I'm going to leave at a warning, because you checked his forum name, and the account links to a non-existent or inactive account.

3. Which likely means it got taken offline due to your action, given the timing (in the last 15 minutes). So probably an unwelcome attack.

Just chill, for crying out loud.
