It really amazes me that my being at a table when a random shooter threw 18 yo's in a row has created such an uproar?

It happened. What's the problem?

The only problem was none of us -- there were three of us at the table -- even had a dollar bet on it and stood there like idiots.

How many of you would admit to standing there like an idiot the way I did? LOL

As one of my buddies told me -- and I wrote about this on my forum -- if there are odds for something to happen, it will happen.

Sure the odds are one in a gazillion... but it happened.

I only wish I could tell you I won so much money from it that I could take over the Powerball organization... but I won nothing.

I don't understand the point of starting a new thread about this when only a few people even remember this story.

Alan posted it in the odd/even thread, which the post had nothing to do with.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Alan, was the shooter setting the dice and trying to influence them, or just flinging them?

Just flinging them, and they were bouncing all over the place. Even the shooter stood there in amazement. Even the shooter never bet a yo.

By the way, if this will help the math guys justify their anger and disdain over this: I will be happy to sell to anyone for $29.99 a demonstration of how he threw the dice. LOL I will have a class in my hotel room at Caesars Palace and using two casino dice, purchased from the gift shop -- with the casino official cancellations -- I will demonstrate by throwing the two dice on to my king size bed how the shooter threw the dice.

This way -- by offering a class for $29.99 -- all of the math guys can feel better about raising such an uproar over what I witnessed.

LOL

This is where you're making a mistake. The odds don't say it CAN'T happen. The odds only say it can happen one in 24 gazillion times to the 8th power. Therefore -- drum roll please -- not only can it happen but it did happen.

That's not to say that Alan and the assembled crowd didn't see it happen,

(2/36)^18=2.5415280553343455718377942293136e-23

or to put it another way
1 in 39346408075296537575424

Which, without the benefit of mathematical proof, I can say with great confidence is less likely than the observers being either mistaken or dishonest.

If I'd witnessed it myself, I'd still assert that it did not happen!

I make no claim about which is greater of Pm or Pd
But (Pm+Pd)>Pyo
Beware. The earth is NOT flat. Hit and run is not a winning strategy: Pressing into trends IS not a winning strategy: Progressives are not a winning strategy: Don't Buy It! .Don't even take it for free.
