If the casino doesn't like a well funded team playing within their casino then perhaps they should consider upping their game protection skills or going into a different business.



On the other hand, since they make it well known that card counting is not welcome there, perhaps such a "well funded team" should honor their request and not count cards.

I never know if Jesse "The Body" is dealing the cards, or if the casino found his clone.

This site is a joke.

Let me get this straight...

WatchMeWin gets a two month ban for simply saying, "Naive," yet ZQ, who just returned from a one month suspension, is allowed to call someone a drone and does not get another suspension for personal insult despite being warned not once but twice by moderator OnceDear.

Then you have Kentry continuously breaking the forum rule against thumbtacking by posting the ridiculously inane lottery predictions and s/he doesn't get a suspension (or dare I say, a well deserved nuke, as should have been done weeks/months/years ago!).

Like I said, a joke of a forum.



I am not Kentry and I really don't appreciate the barb at me when I had nothing to do with this thread and in fact decided to read this thread on an impulsive whim(I'm the one who posts about Lottery Numbers Predictions, which by the way I no longer do it was getting tedious and tiresome for me and I got the advice to stop posting Florida Lottery Numbers Predictions since most of WOV doesn't live in Florida, so the FLNP have no use for them).

I agree 0%. As Uston vs. Atlantic City showed, both sides are better off with the cat and mouse game as is.


While Atlantic city couldn't technically bar you for counting,they could shuffle whenever they wanted or they could restrict you to one hand of table minimum.
Also Las Vegas casinos went to 6-5 bj before Atlantic city did so,Although the Uston case is often cited,I don't think it made that much difference.
Having said that,I think casinos should have the right to restrict your play.

I agree. This was before my time, but I heard after the Uston ruling the casinos all made penetration worse to the point counters were not motivated to play any longer. I welcome correction if I'm in error on that.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Initially there was a knee jerk reaction and they were dealing 50% penetration,that didnt last long,but 75% was pretty standard.

I still thing Uston did all gamblers a great service with that case.

It's nice to play in a jurisdiction where the rule of law says they can't throw you out for using your brain to play as well as possible.

I don't even play blackjack anymore but I still benefit every time I enter the casino having that peace of mind.

Yea theyre gonna be sued into oblivion.




I tried to skim through enough of this and think I have an idea of where everything stands. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong. To summarize:

ZK plays blackjack at Las Vegas casinos. Occasionally casino staff ask him to leave, sometimes even reading a statement that refers to some NRS. He leaves, but believes his rights and the law have been violated. In response to these violations, he comes to these internet chatrooms to warn these casinos that is going to sue them. But then instead of suing them, he just lets the same scenario play out over and over again.


During this process he insults anyone who questions that he is the most brilliant legal mind in the state. One thing I'm missing is knowing if he insult these casino employees to their face, or does he leave politely and only insult them behind their backs?

Well done, IMO.

Quoting it to make it a bit easier to find & repost. In all the multiple nearly identical threads that are going to continue to come for however many months and years, until it it eventually stops for one of the inevitable reasons that I'm probably not supposed to say here, no matter how obvious and severe it is.
