Looks like MarcusClark66 was nuked during my brief absence? By the Wizard. Well, this is the second MDawg supporter who has been nuked, and after some sort of Monday morning quarterback afterthoughts.

Something about - Marcus claimed to play at a mid-West casino where they allow re-splitting of aces? But Marcus played Baccarat I thought not Blackjack....

No. He posted a photo of the high limit table where he claimed a $10,000 bacc bet was won by him (or maybe it was his wife). Anyway, the table layout in the photo was a new format, and the only casino that had it had a $400 max limit. Busted.

I'm no longer big on allstar type games but you couldn't pay me to go to the Pro Bowl. Hopefully, mdawg learns from his mistakes so he can avoid having to do this again next year. I'd rather the casino sent me to my room with no dinner or television than send me to the pro bowl.

Yes, what I am saying is that going to the SuperBowl was not an option for us.
Quote: MDawg

Well, in order to be flown to the SuperBowl and be in the casino's suite you have to have lost at least mid six figures in one trip! at least, that is the qualification with one of the majors on the Strip. Pass! (I think that's unusual because for most casino events they don't care if you win or lose as long as you give them the action.)

Here's the thing: when I get invited to these sports events and DECLINE to go, I sometimes end up in a roller coaster of up and down play that day, and at some point think, Darn! should have just taken up the invite and not played that day. Soo...this time I just said...yes! ProBowl today it is.

Anyway, what this tells me is that there are busy bodies who pore over posts here that rub them the wrong way and spend their days researching any way to put said posts down. Now, in the case where someone lies and there is no truth to the post, no harm done in the end in unearthing the deception?

But what about where someone is telling the truth about having negotiated some nice concession from the casino for high end play, or better rules for a table game, and these droves of busy bodies end up contacting the casinos directly to research about the unequal treatment one player is getting that isnít available to all? In such a case real damage might be done to the player who has something advantageous in place and now has to hear about it from the playerís host or whoever approved the better rules or concessions, about how the casino exec is getting flack for giving the player an advantage because the average players on the street are now making a stink about it.

Did you enjoy the pro bowl? I accidentally saw two plays. One was a running play and as the defenders grabbed hold of the runner EVERYONE JUST STOPPED! They didnít tackle him. He didnít try to use his strength for extra yards. THE NFL SHOULD BE EMBARRASSED TO PUT ON SUCH AN EVENT!

The AFC red team took charge of the game early on with an interception and immediate touchdown. I right away remarked to my wife that the players, over all, seemed pretty small physically - more like college than professional players. About halfway through the game I was bored (score was AFC 41 - NFC 21 at one point), and wondering how long it would be until it was over. However, by the end of the third quarter as the NFC blue team started to catch up, I was actually into it. Wasn't that bad.

What play did you see where the "defenders grabbed hold of the runner [and] EVERYONE JUST STOPPED!" (You could have been describing every "tackle" in the game. 😀) There was a play towards the very end of the game where AFC #10 I think it was didn't feel like he had been "tackled" and kept running all the way to the end zone. That touchdown was disallowed. What I figured out right away is that apparently the standard for the Pro Bowl is that there is a gentlemen's agreement among the players that they do not tackle each other, rather that as soon as a player is effectively confronted by a member of the opposite team, that he is understood to have been tackled. Clearly there is no hard and fast rule to what constitutes a tackle, as evidenced by this #10 player who kept going for something like fifty yards to cross the line. And maybe that was the play you saw - but anyway, all the plays in the Pro Bowl are like that - there are no actual takedown tackles. Still, it wasn't obvious to me whether the "standard" for stoppage was mere touch, blockage or what.

During the game they went over league awards that had been given to various teenage (and younger) male and female flag football teams, which establishes I suppose the connection between Pro Bowl "tackling" and contactless games like flag football.

I started to wonder if there were any Pro Bowl games in the past where tempers flared and someone was tackled for real?

Anyway, for this event we opted for lower bowl seats very near the field, instead of up in the casino's suite. As I'm writing this my wife was going on about how "unexciting" the game was, but, not being exactly a huge football fan anyway, I actually liked the game over all, as an experience. Certainly there were a lot of back and forth rapid touchdowns, more than in many regular football games.



Cheerleaders from different teams.

Half time show was blocked from the CLUB seats side of the stadium - odd.

Most likely bad luck.When I used to go on weekends to a particular casino and I had gotten to know some of the dealers.o e day I was looking to play and the dealer said basic strategy wasn't working that day. I played some hoping things would change but they didn't. It sucked as it took me about 90 minutes to get to the casino.just the nature of gambling.some days it's just not to be no matter how much you throw at it. Go to the buffet and try again another day. Sorry you lost at any rate.

The only All-Star game that I have any interest in is the MLB All-Star game. In genral, I think the pitcher is trying to get out the batter and the batter is trying to get a hit. The rest of the defense is a joke but at least those two main players are trying.
At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

Turn the Pro Bowl into a fan-friendly competition. Lets see a 40 yard dash. One heat have eight wide receivers and the other have defensive backs. Let's have a tug of war between the best OL and the best DL. Have a home run hitting contest.
By the way, does anyone know how much of that crowd was papered?

Day 35 play.

Baccarat.

Some back and forth and was negative as much as -15K at one point but I powered ahead. A Player run at the end took me over the top.

+23500

Note: Lately, for security reasons, session reports are not necessarily presented in real time corresponding directly to the day played.



I'm willing to present a side Challenge. If anyone doubts that any one, just any one of the Session reports I present during this trip is not entirely accurate, throw down a red flag! Put up a mere ten grand in cash, let's work out how to verify the Session to your satisfaction using the Wizard as the judge, and winner takes the twenty thousand.

I'll contribute five hundred from my end for the Wizard's time if the Challenger will do the same, so that's $19,000. to the winner of this side Challenge.

This Side Challenge remains good for the duration of this particular Vegas trip.

This is JB Smoove (Leon) from Curb Your Enthusiasm.


My wife says he's the perfect spokesperson for Caesars because "he's a guest in Larry David's house, and now he's a guest in Caesar's house." (Although - this analogy doesn't really fit the intent of Caesars (without an apostrophe) because the lack of apostrophe is supposed to indicate that everyone is a Caesar at Caesars Palace.

No player wants to risk an injury in the Pro Bowl. This is well known.

The Pro Bowl should be discontinued or turned into flag football.

Please enlighten me on the "papered" term as it applies to Las Vegas. I am not like most people just for example I hit the gym for an hour and half 3 to 5 times a week even while staying in a hotel.

Mdawg says: We already have at least one member here KewlJ who has gone on record as saying that he is in favor of doxxing anyone who he deems is not an advantage player. So Kewlj decides that so and so isnít an advantage player and goes out of his way to make the playerís identity known. And then, if the details of what the now doxxed player has been posting online get back, again to the playerís host or whoever approved the better rules or concessions, it may cause issues.

Moses says: Going on forums shouldn't mean getting kicked off tables. My question is how is he obtaining private info? It has to be from forums for me. No one else had my name. Pretty sure I can rule out the Wizard.

WOV has many topics. The post littlredrooster made on Bob Pettit was superb. I have been able to share that with many friends and it made their day. 👍

Same with a few of Mdawgs posts. Pictures of first class rooms and stadium views with pics of players and cheerleaders are fun for friends who won't enjoy that lifestyle again. Like my 90 year old friend Joe.

Doxing can be a slippery slope. As I see it, saying you saw a Poster on this Website at Bellagio isn't Doxing, but taking a picture of a said Poster at Bellagio and posting it on here without their permission is a form of doxing.

Day 37 play.

Baccarat.

Whewwwwwwweee! Quite a lot of heavy hitting action. Hours of play. Was down as much as -65000 at one point. Ended in the red but still, consider this session quite a Victory in terms of recovery from lows.

-7500

For whatever reason, I canít eat a raw shrimp. To me, if it is good salmon, there is no better raw option. I may have previously mentioned this, but I often buy Wegmans sushi and top each piece of a roll with an extra piece of raw salmon. The sashimi grade salmon goes for around $33 a pound and I get around 1/4 pound.

Raw shrimp (Amaebi) I assume you mean that you can't stand the texture or flavor?

It doesn't really taste like much, very mild, if anything cooked shrimp (Ebi) has a stronger taste to it.

I also recall that you don't like sea urchin (Uni). What about salmon (Ikura) or capelin / flying fish roe (Masago/Tobiko)?

How about some sliced Kobe beef to go with that Amaebi?

This talk about 18 Yo's in a row, and that no one bet them....

When monstrous streaks emerge, you have to be in a certain state of mind to take full advantage of them. And even then, you might not.

For example, on a recent Baccarat session, the shoe delivered 12 Banks straight out the gate. Now, I was HOT in the beginning of that shoe. I was down about -50K, and was saying to myself that I was just going to bet thirty or forty grand two hands in a row and get it back quickly. That is not to say that I knew a dozen Banks were coming straight out the gate, no of course I did not, but typically, on Baccarat opening shoes I free hand the first hand, then bet again on whatever came out, and follow from there. SO, on any shoe where lots of Banks or Players roll out on the open, I am typically going to get all but the first one (not always, sometimes I might just free hand a bunch of hands and go from there, but usually I will bet whatever came up first and give it a shot, if it hits again, I just follow - if it doesn't, oh well, I lost just one hand).

Now in this 12 Bank straight out the gate case, that is exactly what I did. I free handed the first hand, it was Bank, and then I bet Bank and won 11/12 of the next hands. But did I win 400K or even 80K or even 50K? No. I won about 20K, because I didn't start at a very high amount, and just pressed from there. In other words, discipline got in the way of recklessness. Now, 20K is good. No shame in winning 20K off a streak but - this is to say that even when I was starting from a vantage point of wanting to win back what I had previously lost in the session, still! I didn't get everything I could out of that streak, or even what I "needed" (50K).

Which is why, in my experience, the times people get the most out of ludicrous streaks are when they:
1 - Are up already so much that they don't care.
2 - Are down enough so that they don't care.

And, in Situation #2, they have to be willing to keep pressing hard even after they get back to even - which is generally hard to do, because the concern is that after all that work to get back to even, one losing hand takes you back into the hole again.

(I had a Situation #1 on a Baccarat session once where I started the shoe up about 20K, free handed the first hand, and then Bank ran a bunch of times and I started with 1000 and pressed, 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, etc. all the way to win some sixty odd K on that streak.)

Therefore, I may very well see why or how 18 Yo's passed by a table without anyone betting much (or at all) them. Unless someone was recklessly ahead or behind enough to just throw down money chasing after such a streak, probably not much was done in the way of taking advantage of the streak. Generally, too, as streaks occur many players simply assume with each passing Bank or Player (or Yo) that the streak is over and "couldn't possibly continue." Now, THAT, is one thing that doesn't happen to me. I don't ever second guess a streak. Once I am pressing into it, I just keep pressing I don't second guess whether or not it will continue. Anytime I experience a streak of 2 or more, I will at least break even.

Recently, I was told about someone who got down to last couple K or so, in Baccarat, put it out there and kept pressing, on a chop that kept up for a ridiculously long period, took the 2K to 300K, and then...left. That would be a Situation #2 scenario. I have done something like that myself, where I had a stack of chips in front of me at Baccarat, suddenly lost a bunch of hands in a row and was down down to a few K, and then just pressed recklessly to take the 3K to 99K, and then...leave.

Raw shrimp (Amaebi) I assume you mean that you can't stand the texture or flavor?

It doesn't really taste like much, very mild, if anything cooked shrimp (Ebi) has a stronger taste to it.

I also recall that you don't like sea urchin (Uni). What about salmon (Ikura) or capelin / flying fish roe (Masago/Tobiko)?

I think ikura is my second favorite Ďpieceí after unagi. I usually get my unagi as an eel and avocado roll. I tend to eat the ikura as a small nibble between my other sushi. I like tobiko as well, but it is not as tasty as ikura to me. Iíll eat sea urchin if I come across it on a platter or on a buffet, but would never order it myself. Not sure why Iíd even eat it then!

I like unagi but sometimes I am in more of a mood to eat it than at other times. It is, after all, somewhat cloyingly sweet (due to the sauce on it, I assume).

Yes, I've been wondering whether Sisolak will follow Newsom. In CA masks will no longer be mandatory for the vaccinated, and since it's not like anyone will check under most circumstances, it means that masks will become optional.

But...during those few weeks or however long it was in Las Vegas during the summer when masks became optional people were catching Covid right and left....

Now this is what they call...a change of plans. But, a GOOD change of plans.

We're going to the SuperBowl, courtesy of one of the casinos. (Not the one that requires a -500K loss in a single trip.) Have a choice between in the casino suite, or lower bowl seats. Haven't decided yet. From what I understand these tickets go for about $20K each.



Change of Plans (but not a good one):

Congrats. Iíd pick the suite. Likely better view than lower bowl seats. And in suite amenities are nice for the 5 or so hours youíll be there. Do you have any rooting interest for either team?

Totally agree. I don't believe anyone who had a REAL choice would take field seats over seats in a So Fi suite for a Super Bowl.

On a less crowded event the suite is the way to go, and we've been inside suites at Allegiant and T-Mobile in Vegas and at SoFi in Inglewood, but for something like the SuperBowl where they will fill the suite to capacity, you may end up sitting at the bar, which is why lower bowl seats might be the better choice. Anyway, we haven't decided yet.

As far as view, lower bowl seats are much closer to the field than the suites. Not like these lower bowl seats are cheap - they are running $15,000. - $20,000. each that close to the action.

Pretty much to get free tickets to the SuperBowl from any top Vegas casino you need to be a minimum $200,000. credit line or front money deposit player, and for some of the casinos more like $300,000. or $500,000. minimum. (I did mention that one major Strip casino that is taking only their players who have lost at least -$500K in a single trip. Ouch. Forget that! (Then again, I suppose once you've lost that much why not get something out of it?))


I was telling my wife that she should root for the Rams. She said NO, Bengals. I said, but Rams are in Los Angeles! She held out her hand and said let's bet $200. that the Bengals will win. Why not? at least that's one way to keep it in the family and guarantee no plus or minus EV (and no house edge)!

Day 38 play.

Baccarat.

Heavy action. Up and down. Some seriously large bets.

+2075

Note: Lately, for security reasons, session reports are not necessarily presented in real time corresponding directly to the day played.



I'm willing to present a side Challenge. If anyone doubts that any one, just any one of the Session reports I present during this trip is not entirely accurate, throw down a red flag! Put up a mere ten grand in cash, let's work out how to verify the Session to your satisfaction using the Wizard as the judge, and winner takes the twenty thousand.

I'll contribute five hundred from my end for the Wizard's time if the Challenger will do the same, so that's $19,000. to the winner of this side Challenge.

This Side Challenge remains good for the duration of this particular Vegas trip.

This weekend all of the hotel suites are sold out at the majors on the Strip. SuperBowl weekend is traditionally a big event at casinos.

Yes, much of the staff and many players are no longer wearing masks in Vegas, but quite a number of people are still masked. I continue to wear my mask while at my table even though no one else is at my table other than the dealer. Not taking any chances.

Table game plexiglass remains up at least at a couple of the majors on the Strip.

Suites are not SRO venues. They have a limited number of seats, and each seat has one ticket only. There will NOT be any crowding. The seats in a suite are far bigger and more comfortably spaced than field seats. There's space to move and there are TVs. The food and drink are right there, and much better than what's available in-seat on the field, and there is space to eat. The bathrooms are much nicer and easier to access. Some on-field seats might have marginally better views, but nothing that would outweigh the amenites of a suite. There's no real reason to chose a field seat over a suite.

Been to both, and when we've been in casino rented or owned suites no seats were assigned, you just went into the suite, and sat where you could. Hasn't been an issue in the past, but then never been in a packed to capacity suite. True, for an event like the SuperBowl the outside-the-suite seats might be assigned.

The lower bowl seats are far closer to the field than the suite seats, unless the casino has a bunker, and then the bunker associated seats are right on the edge of the hockey rink or field, but during the Covid era, at least at T-Mobile, the casinos had to give up their bunkers because they were too close to the players. We've sat at lower bowl seats that were directly on the field or right above the players, and the view is pretty d. good.

I've been to many NFL suites, and the seats in the suite aren't assigned, but the number of tickets assigned to the suite definitely are. There will not be any crowding.

We will be in the suite for the Super Bowl. I actually didn't have any input into this, the host was still talking about which would you prefer, but then the head person at the casino who was in charge of the event just asked me to prepare the app that receives the tickets and then that was it, assigned to casino's suite.

Day 39 play.

Baccarat.

I never bet more than mmm 5500 or so but that was enough to do the trick.

+22700

Forget about renting from Hertz!

Hertz claims thousands of renters steal cars. Customers argue they've been falsely accused.

On Thursday, Julius Burnside described what he said was his experience renting a car from Hertz in 2017.

"Turned it in, paid for it, kept my receipts, went about my life, found out there was a warrant for my arrest and subsequently went to jail," he told MSNBC.

Other people told "Inside Edition" that they were similarly arrested after Hertz accused them of stealing cars they had paid for. A charge of felony auto theft against Paul-Anthony Knight was ultimately dismissed, the TV program reported, but not before he served jail time.

"I was thrown to the ground, I was arrested and I was locked up for over a week," Knight, of the Atlanta area, told "Inside Edition" last month.

Colorado resident Drew Seaser told CBS News he was stopped by customs officers at an airport and informed there was a warrant for his arrest in Georgia, where Hertz alleged he had stolen a rental car. Seaser said he had never been to Georgia or rented a vehicle from Hertz.

Those kinds of false theft allegations have not abated, attorneys for the customers said.

"Despite active litigation on false-police-report claims, Hertz customers continue to be arrested and that 'tiny fraction' continues to grow," the lawyers wrote in court filings, citing previous comments from a company lawyer that a "tiny fraction" of customers is wrongfully arrested.

DD Blackjack. 500 - 10000.

Fairly short session. Was down as much as about 5K at one point. Ended fine.
