DANA WHITE: CASINO KING OF THE MIX
It is our opinion that the combination of all four traits above has contributed to the success of the Blackjack King. You cannot instantly teach someone how to have an eye for the game, but you can learn it if you approach the tables with your eyes open like Mr. White does.

Let’s hope that other casinos give him a bigger break in the future. After all, natural talent to read the game is no crime and deserves a reward.

JFcombat’s YouTube video showcased a Joe Rogan (long-time UFC commentator) interview where he featured footage of the boss of the UFC, Dana White, boasting of his success at the tables and then being banned for playing at the Palms Casino for a second time. This video of the Dana White casino ban has received over 9 million views to date. The video starts with Dana saying:

“I started playing cards again on December 21st this year. I have not lost a night of cards since December 21st and we just hit ‘em again, so this is like my part-time job.”

Those words were off the back of a 5-month winning streak that saw the president of the Ultimate Fighting Champions (UFC), Dana White take home multiple millions. In fact, it is alleged that he took home a whopping $7 million in a single sitting, according to Rogan.

The video concludes with him receiving his ‘’walking papers’’ from the chief executive of the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas the next day. Because the UFC, Dana White, and his colleagues had been good to the Palms over the years, the management decided to award White with a championship fight belt that reads “PALMS – Undisputed Blackjack Champion 24-0’’. We’re not sure that this trinket of good faith justifies ending a man’s potential to make millions of dollars. Dana White’s Palms Casino experience will surely be the talk of the town for a while.

Saw this hilarious article on another gambling forum on reddit, thought it'd be worth a thread discussion. Personally I think he's card counting and on a lucky upswing. He's smart enough to get favorable tables, and like other high rollers he tends to get casinos that bend to his asks for various advantages that high rollers can get with favorable rules. I've also noticed when people say they're not card counting with "furthest from a card counter" it usually means they are in fact counting. This is a normal human psychological thing that people do.

Losing overall player on a streak. Palms uncomfortable with the volatility and action, poor casino management. Or he is getting special treatment/rebates.

No secrets. He's said in other interviews, he's lost millions. Palms just couldn't handle his bankroll. Other places will.

He'd better just hope that they don't take a page from the MGM playbook and sue him, if that's the case.

The guy is a notorious loser at gambling. Don't believe everything you read. Come hang out in Vegas for a few years and you will see for yourself.
