You know the whole thing was for fun. Even if I went long enough to do max bet and hit him for $1,000 (which would be very unlikely), it's not changing anybody's life.

The point I made before taking any bet from anyone is that I prefer to keep my bets good bets and I get plenty of good bets in the casino.

I won a $100 odds bet on an eight at lunch today, and I play every single day.

It is no big deal for either one of us.

But as the Wizard points out: maxxing out your odds bets is the smart bet.

The bet I had with the Wizard wasn't as good as a pass line bet, I think for me.

I think the Wizard said his edge assuming everything was random was the same as my edge against him assuming I had an average RSR of 6.5 or thereabouts.

So at the very least, he had a good bet for sure assuming a controlled shooter doesn't exist, and I only had a good bet if I could recreate my RSR for the 3000 rolls I had recorded. Even if I had control, if it was only half as much as I thought, the Wizard would still have a good bet and not me.

Otherwise I had a shitty bet and he had a good bet.

On the discussion on DI, I have the opinion very few could actually accomplish it and the effort needed to gain it cannot exceed not being able to throw if you could. There is no point to try if you succeed and are banned from the casino.
Most who even try are probably not athletic or coordinated in the first place. Most likely those who could do it, would be athletically superior and also would have succeeded in other sports.

But how would know if it was him? Didn't every Lone

Something isn't until it's proven it is. That's the way life works.


I see.

So, the earth was flat, but it suddenly became round as soon as Columbus proved it to be round.

That's certainly the way life works for some on this forum.

Hopefully your woman is out with the kids, shopping for toys, thanks to Uncle Tupp.


By the way, Buzzard, have you decided to take my bet in which you have no monetary risk?
