Asians view the game of Baccarat very superstitiously. They believe that if you are winning at it, it means that you are favored, by luck, by God, by whatever forces in which you believe. This superstition extends to that if someone bets against them they think this somehow detracts from their ability to win the hand.

So, while it may well be nothing more than gambling addiction (which runs the gamut through all of humanity not just through one race), yes, even Asians themselves will comment to me at the tables something like, "If you go to a casino - most of the people you see there are Asians!"

But I've known women who have declared that, "I'm _____ so I have to gamble." Fill in the blank, I've heard almost any race you could imagine filled into that space.

And while yes, at casinos like Venetian and Wynn you will see a lot of Asians, you will also see a lot of plain ol' non-Asian Americans, too. And for example at the old Hard Rock Vegas, which was packed in its heyday with gamblers - nary an Asian in sight.

So while yes, maybe at certain casinos and maybe even in casinos in general there are a lot of Asians, I see a lot of people of all races gambling their arses off in casinos....

    Speaks to his opinion of the post, not of you personally. Keep trying.

    I tend to agree.

    i don't. i was just stating facts, and musing on those facts. sabre was speaking to what he thought were my opinions.

    Yes, we post opinions, sometimes. I'm pretty sure that's what posting is. He may or may not have inferred, from your post, that you personally hold a particular opinion, but he didn't say that. He spoke to the post.

    It would be like if I posted and made something that someone perceived as a math error. Someone could say, "I think your process is a little off, Mission," which doesn't mean that this theoretical person is saying I suck at math.

    Maybe it's a cultural thing, but these are not facts.

    Start with by using the words, "I think," in your post, you're already stipulating that the statement might not be a fact.

    i'm not going to enter into some long whining episode. i'll just state that i think you're twisting things in sabre's favour when he was clearly out of line. and is it the first time?

    An Administrator has spoken and he seems to agree with my position. Who's whining? Did I complain about anybody's post?

    You state- "I could be wrong but I think most of them are addicted"

    There is nothing factual in this statement, and many would find it offensive.

    Do you refer to your wife or daughter as " birds"? Do you call your female friends "birds" to their face? Would you object if another player at the table referred to your wife as a "bird"?

    I used to stay a lot at Caesar's Tahoe before it became MontBleu. I guess Bob Newhart was some kind of spokesman for them because when you turned the TV on some video would appear constantly, of Bob in the casino, talking about why he loves casinos so much. He'd say that he liked to watch people in casinos, because their true character would come out, often in a funny and entertaining way, such as the little old lady who finally hits a slot jackpot and comes unglued with excitement, or the same little old lady who becomes territorial about her slot machine and tells you to back off away from it.

    I feel the same way, I like to watch people in casinos and the way they act, at least, when they are winning. It's depressing to watch people lose, but even at those times, it's cathartically interesting in a sort of ascetically purging way. Now, I don't like these people - or any people - at my tables, but I don't mind watching them here and there. And, as far as people watching, go to Cosmopolitan, Wynn/Encore (especially on weekends), or Venetian/Palazzo and you'll see a number of very watch worthy scantily dressed girls walk on by, such that you really have to control yourself to avoid walking up and saying HI!

    i think you and others are putting out opinions about me, that are projections. you cannot assume things from what i'm posting. ask, if you want to know what i think. i don't have anything against women or asians. i don't have a problem calling a woman a bird, but it seems you do. and seriously, why are these posts about me and not about the topics i'm posting about?

    I tend to interpret question marks as meaning that someone isn't making an assumption, or expressing an opinion, but is rather asking a question. I think direct assumptions expressed and opinions stated would typically be followed by a different punctuation mark, but I could be wrong.

    I do find it amusing that you told BillRyan he should, "Ask," while quoting a post that contained only questions.

    Here's a question: Is it possible that you are reading too much into the questions contained in the post you quoted? That's a question.
