I never received a response to a PM asking strictlyAP to confirm the identity of the "local casino" where he had his $25k adventure. But today, I witnessed something at one of the Boyd casinos that suggests a high ranking gaming protection person monitors this site.

What I saw was every dealer, at a dead table (no players), practicing a new procedure for dealing hole cards on pitch games; that was implemented just last night. In this new procedure, the deck is held at about 30 degrees, with the front edge of the deck touching the felt. One hand holds the top card still, while the other hand pulls back on the rest of the deck. As the bottom cards are slid back, the top card is quickly pressed down.

While the dealers were practicing, the floor person would walk around, critiquing their practice. I overheard him explaining that all Boyd casinos will soon be using this procedure.

For them to be spies, this would at least have to be a private forum.

I think it would be more accurate to say that the casinos are good at doing their job!

They could have just looked at the surveillance footage after getting popped!

That is why no advantage plays should see the light of day on this site. Idiots that come on here to brag, just blow it for themselves and everyone else. Next thing you know somebody will be live streaming a craps challenge. Nitwits.

There be spies, if that's what you want to call us, everywhere. Really. That's why Lonesome, Aces, just about everyone keeps telling everyone else to shut their yaps.

There's a number of APs who say exactly where they are. Some don't. Even the ones who don't say have given enough info that I can probably peg them within a property, and definitely within a section of a State.

Me, I don't care. Do it there, hell, do it here, I'm still not scouring this or any forum for my next big break. But don't think there might not be some big suit or guy looking to make a name that does exactly that.

That being said, I wouldn't say that this is a result of said "spies". Just looks like good game pro, and really, not rocket science. Should've been doing this a long time ago; fortunately for the APs, there's still plenty of dummies running the games out there.

Casino execs read my forum and my forum is a needle in a haystack compared to the importance of this forum. It doesn't surprise me one iota that casino execs follow what is said here.

And it wouldn't surprise me if they all subscribe to Google Alerts so that everytime subjects of interest are mentioned Google sends them an email with a link.

I have a Google Alert set up for "Alan Mendelson" and I know immediately what happens when the lawyer in San Francisco, the dentist in Ft Lauderdale (he went to jail), and the other Alan Mendelsons of the world make news.

Since casino execs read this forum and there seems to be so many people with connections in this place, who can help a guy with degrees in both Accounting and Finance score a job in a casino doing something? LoL I love the casino and everything about it. I'd love to work in one, doing anything!

You do know that "certain restrictions apply." You can't play there, and that you, your immediate family, etc. are disqualified from any promotional offers

You can't play "there" or at any of that casino's other properties?
