(Jeff Foxworthy voice) IF rule #1 of your betting system is "not to get too greedy".... youuuuuuuuuu might not be an AP.



Its not a 'system' . It is a style of play on principle, discipline, management, consistency, and proven success.

Good point... yes , greedy in the sense that you want more, but for me, it must come in pieces. Thats my history of success anyway. Lots of singles and doubles, but not looking for the home run at one shot. Chip Chip Chip....

(Jeff Foxworth voice) IF you say your "style of play" is built on proooooven success, even though you have zero mathematics to back it up, youuuuuuuuuuuuu might not be an AP.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I never said I was an AP, nor have I ever claimed to be one. I just know how to win... and I love it!

A friend of mine told me his friend accidentally threw away a dealt flush only to draw another flush in the same suit.



That's common on a VLT.

Ya, that seems to be the most common game to do it on. You probably would not make that mistake on a JOB where you don't go for inside straights anyways.



I missed your response, sorry about that. You're correct, and on those few occasions that I've done it accidentally, it's been because there is a proper inside straight draw that could be held at the same time, (think 5, 6, 9, 10, 7) and I've just hit the wrong button. If it was something like 5, 6, 9, K, 7, or 5, 6, 10, K, 7; I don't think I have ever made that mistake.

One day after having a sleepless night I had to go do some shopping with my GF. I didn't have time for anything other than getting dressed. Lucky for me, my greed is good T-shirt was mostly clean.

I was very hungry, very dehydrated and I was in a very foul mood. My GF told me if I was going to be grumpy the entire time, I should just go hang out someplace untill she was done shopping. I called her the B and C word and stomped off to the car.

The closest place was a Dotty's. I really dislike the Dotty's chain for various negative reasons, but I went anyways. When I arrived at Dottys I double parked between the expected mothers and a handicap parking spot. I figured there was no good reason for a pregnant lady to be at Dottys anyways, and the non-handicap parking at Dottys is just as close and the handicapped ones.

As I was getting out of my cars some homeless guy ask to wash my windows. I said, "sure" and then I stiffed him. He told me I had negative energy and my aura was black as coal. I lured him closer with a C note, and instead of giving it to him, I said, "NO SH*T", and then I tripped him.

I saw a Miata in the parking lot with a #MeToo sticker, so I used my key to scratch in #WhoCares.

Soon after I got into Dottys, I sat down and put the same C note that I lured and deprived that bum with. I had full intentions of losing that $100 within just a few hands, But instead, I quickly hit a big jackpot. That didn't even make me happy. The attendant quickly came over and said, "congratulationsssss". I knew that had to be his Miata, so I told him that I just saw some bum scratching it and how I tripped him before he did any more damage.

After getting paid my Jackpot(I told him I would tip just before I left because I didn't want everyone to see how much I was going to give him), I could have walked away, but instead, I looked at my greed is good t-shirt and continued to play. I assumed I would just give it all back, I was very positive I was going to lose it all. Within a few minutes, I quickly hit a bigger jackpot. The attendant quickly came over again and said, "congratulationsssss, I love when people hit big jackpots." I replied, "ME TOO", and left without tipping.

And then I was....




Some of the details may have been changed for dramatic and sarcastic purposes.

A few of our fellow members may have changed all of their stories facts and details for dramatic purposes.

Negative and positive energy when it comes to gambling is total BS. It's just another confirmation biased thing. There may be games like poker where things like that can affect you, especially your image at the table good or bad. If you are winning there is a chance others will be less likely to challenge you, and if you are losing some people will prey on you. I have no doubt that there are people who play above their normal bankroll and bet size or stay longer when they are in a bad mood or have a negative mindset.

I saw a guy just hold a ten of spades on ddb, think he was vulturing ux, to make it worse. Not only did he play badly, he took opportunity from others.

Not a bad play, but some guy was hitting the high limit room up on slots, told me he lost his winnings because the waitress switched his alcohol up which screwed up his luck. He blamed the alcohol of all things, not because he was drinking, but because he was given a different alcohol.

It was also funny, think he scammed the casino out of $11. Said he left $11 in the machine when he went to the restroom and when he came back it was gone. It wasn't cashed out, $11, couldn't have been played, because of minimum $20 bet, but they gave it to him.
