So as mentioned previously in this thread it sounds like you need another emotional outlet for the pent up anger from losses/etc? As I suggested before, I'd HIGHLY recommend you start off with like a mauy thai kickboxing or boxing class. If you really want a workout do jiu-jitsu... They will be the best workouts of your life, and you'll learn a very valuable skill. Hell, even buying a $100 heavy bag and just T-ing off on it in your Apt could do the trick =).Quote: ZenKinG
Well first off, let me go ahead and take the high road. Yes I went a bit overboard once again due to an emotional rant and when i said useless scum, it obviously wasnt towards the people that have helped me whether publicly or privately on here or the people i've met in real life from this forum and you know who you are. It also wasn't called for to say that about anyone on this forum, even if some have pushed me a bit over the edge at times. Whether this apology now makes me look worse or whatever, i dont care, just want to settle the air. I also will be doing my best to not bring my rants to this forum anymore. All it does is print an image of me that's not really me. It's basically just emotional anger coming out and it's like I become a completely different person for 10 minutes...
That's a pretty bold plan... Double decks + Caesars is not the way to go if your goal is to get diamond. Look up the Diamond in a Day thread. Caesars practically GIVES diamond away at least once per year when they do their bonuses (which all stack on top of one another). You should really just eat the $350 in negative EV to get diamond (which if you read my posts in that thread I don't think the EV is negative at all to just play VP and get diamond). Between the mailers, food, comps, etc, etc, I truly believe it's a +EV play to get Diamond in a day (which if timed right is good for 2 years essentially). Heck, being in vegas you could even sell the "free" show tickets each month for cheap (hey, pays for gas).Quote: ZenKinG
I've also done a bit of thinking the last 3 days actually and I'm actually going to change my whole approach. Either I learn how to disconnect my emotions from the game or just quit altogether. Also the plan is still to continue living in vegas, but im thinking of traveling all around the country to now play exclusively double deck games and get diamond status at the tolerant caesars properties outside of vegas. Then take that diamond status and go to the caesars food lounges in vegas and just eat and drink for free. Even if I get made as a counter outside of Vegas, it is my understanding Caesars wont remove your diamond status and they also dont communicate well among caesars properties so my picture wouldn't be sent to vegas. I'm going to have to find a way to disguise my betting playing these double deck games, maybe use some inverse betting 3 hands off the top minimum bet and 1 hand max bet, but the EV playing these games is about double the shoe games. Definitely thinking of different strategies now to offset expenses as well as increase my EV and lower variance.
Bob Dancer is currently offering his free video poker classes at the South Point . Can't recommend them enough. Before I took his classes, I was clueless. Now I'm just generally a bit confused.
