Probably doesn't fall under a rule, but I wonder what value there is in a poster with these opinions or thoughts?

Who would wish this on anyone?

I'll tell you what's really stupid. Posting that you don't know how much more you can take before you might try something stupid.

No offense to Latinos or Latinas but they seem to run around where I live blowing up the streets all night until the sun comes up and not only on the 4th but for one week prior and after the 4th so it's like two weeks of M 80s blowing up near my windows every night! On the fourth it is like a war zone over here. I swear the smoke is very thick and if I didn't know better I really think I am in a war zone.




Where I live they like to shoot guns in the air on NY Eve. Funny thing about gravity.

Why won't the casino let me and 30 other counters make 15k per year?



If we follow ZKG's logic, then they should allow me to play 40 hours a week making $200/hr in EV. 8k per week, or $400,000 a year.

Or is ZKG suggesting there's a limit (2x250?) where they should let someone play, but not higher?

And to whom they wish.



I watched a young lady playing at my local Indian joint last night, she was playing stacks of greens. Her boyfriend was behind her in a wheelchair giving her advice. Her best play of the night was splitting 4s against a dealer 8, making stiffs on both hands and standing. They were a pleasant couple. Everyone was happy and having fun.

This is probably what OP doesn't understand. For every one person beating the joint there's countless others at various levels doing the same thing, especially if it's public knowledge like card counting.

The rest of y'all continue as you like. (Manatee =
POTD) but Zenking is taking a 7 day time out for profanity.

To be continued, I'm sure.

I still smell something fishy with this ZenKing anyway. First he goes on about how he is gonna move out of the house and asks if any other city is good for counting other than Vegas? Next he is gonna move to Vegas and wants information. He gets plenty of information. Next he wants to play with family for the holidays. As this goes on he claims his counting system is the best! Not many days later he claims a big loss followed by 86 problems. Now he claims getting 86'd by mail! I thought he swore off BJ after that big loss? What about the moving out bit? Smells fishy to me. The whole thing stinks like its fake!!

Oh and I forgot about the college degree bit and quitting two jobs. Reminds me of Flick in the Christmas Story movie whe he says: stuck... stuck... stuck! Only, I hear fake... fake ... fake!

I am actually quite surprised anyone can make anything counting cards. Even at moderately low stakes it must be so easy to tell who is a counter without much work. If I owned a casino I would get rid of a lot more than they presently do. People are focused on the "15k" a year that the casino is losing, but it is really much more. Each seat taken by a positive EV counter is a seat that needs a dealer, a pit boss, cards, security, tray lizard, etc... The casino needs to not just break even for each seat, but make a profit.
Seriously, monet, Rigon, Axel, etc.... you don't think if a casino hired you that you couldn't clear out the counters without inadvertently axing a lucky random guy? I have none of the experience you guys do, and I think I could do it.

As far as the OP complaining, welcome to the real world. There are many here who navigate these difficult waters and make it work, it doesn't seem you have the temperment to do so.
