No report in 5 hours. Does Ace's window on the top
floor open? Anybody check the hoods of the cars in
the back parking lot?

I have been playing and playing up and down, down and up, then got utterly destroyed!!!

Highlights/lowlights:

5 double downs with $200 up (total $400 for doubles) with 11's versus dealer upcards of 4, 4, 4, 7, 5 where I ended up with 17, 19, 20, 20, 19 and was beaten by 1 each time

with $250 up I split 4's against a dealer deuce 1st hand being 4,7 double down draw a 3...second hand being 4, K ... you can all figure out where that went

the one highlight of each shoe was the END of the shoe!


Ace is now down $2k for the trip (and $5k total counting last week)


Buzz: bankroll is fluid anywhere from 15-30

This is only Friday, you have plenty of time
for the fluctuation to go in your favor again.
If you're counting correctly the edge is in
your favor.

There's a nice casino in the Marina District that starts with the letter B and it has the same game you're playing now. Take a break and check them out.

Agreed Bob agreed! Deep breaths, dinner with family, and away we go!

I've been boycotting them for an incident before I even began attempting to "count" - not going back!

I shall fill myself up with glorious pasta at dinner and begin with a renewed spirit this evening.

in other casino news:
big wig from the Mickey Mouse company been here over a week - gets a $50k credit line each time he sits at a table...each time he switches tables means he has lost the $50k...in just the one hour I was in the high limit room last night he lost $150k (betting 3 hands at a time $2k per hand)
...this afternoon the same thing occurred
I wonder if he is up or down for the week...but his antic upon losing (i.e. kicking water bottles across the room and screaming at himself) are a sight to behold...


on the other end of the anger spectrum, guy sat down with his entourage (everyone 60years+), asked for a $100k marker, and regaled anyone within earshot with great stories and would laugh any losses away

What? In fifteen plus years, I have never reached a count high enough for this play.




Count was slightly positive so I took a chance.

That would have been the perfect time for them to run a skills check on you.
