I removed the 18 yos in a row poll as some of the choices were insulting.

Its okay to make truthful statements about the long odds against this feat, but let's not jump to any insulting conclusions.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

"Yos" appears in various dictionaries as a derogatory word. "Yo's" can also be derogatory but is not as obvious.
We don't use an apostrophe for the plural of a bet on crap which is craps. But I agree the apostrophe helps comprehension and avoids the directly derogatory word of "Yos."

Alan is a man of high integrity and I enjoy his VP web site. I have started to have a bigger advantage over VP after following the advice of one of his top contributors, Rob Singer.

ROFLMAO

I calculate that if there were 1,000 craps tables going 24/7 for the entire lifespan of the sun (4.6 billion years), there would still be only a 1 in 544 chance of ever seeing 18 yos in the row.

Isn't that 'If you were able to monitor all those tables for all time'

Absolutely. James has retired and I don't recall who the other dealers were or the floorman but they wouldn't be there anymore either.

How very convenient.

No wager is needed.

I'm leaving this forum.

Wizard, please remove my account.

I don't need the insults.

Adios.
