Its like the stock market... only a selfish fool expects to buy at the very lowest price and sell at the very highest price.

You think the SEC is made up of really smart people? The smart people were the ones telling the SEC that he was clearly doing something illegal. The SEC is a joke. Bureaucrats who don't understand how the market works -- they only know how to check that all the forms are filled out and filed correctly.

I was not talking about the SEC. I was talking about the intelligent investors, many of whom were heads of financial empires.

It never got that way. As soon as I made my plan to regress -- it was seven out.



Almost unfailingly every time I am on a hot roll and I think "one more roll, then I'm pulling all my bets down" the next roll is a hand ending 7. Ironic how similar things happen in almost every Craps session...
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

Clearly you are trolling.



Clearly you lack a sense of humor.

Or, alternatively: "I'm having a bad feeling about this roll. Time to take my bets down. Hey look. There's the point. Sigh."

yes, ravens scored 31 pts. got $35 freeplay about 45min after end of game.
played one hand of bacarat (Banker). won. left.

to enter the freeplay, swipe your card anytime between 3:30pm and end of game.
so u could have came after they scored 21pts.



They are doing it again. You'll see me at halftime if it is a Ravens blowout! [or just a high scoring game on both sides]

actually, probably not, as I'd have to talk the wife into it, a monumental task. Going by myself with both of us off .... there would be payback.

I had the same feeling last weekend playing craps at GrandSierraResort...
I'd buy the pass-point and press it everytime shooter made there point...
$30 -> $50 -> $90 -> $150...alas, the $150 only hit once, which was pressed to $210 (didn't hit)
