Would still love to know whether it's more probably to lose 30 hands of roll 18yos



Do you skip over pushes in blackjack, or do they break a streak of wins?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

No wager is needed.

I'm leaving this forum.

Wizard, please remove my account.

I don't need the insults.

Adios.

Alan, you knew going in that your claim of seeing eighteen elevens rolled in a row would be met on this board (of all the gambling boards!) with absolute disbelief by many.

You've long been somewhat of a "lightning rod" in that some of your posts have been a bit "over the top."

I assumed you enjoyed being provocative, that you enjoyed the attention your posts engendered, that you enjoyed playing "the gambling board game" and were thick-skinned and secure in your beliefs.

To see you say you will now leave due to you taking umbrage at comments which you presumably expected and arguably encouraged is a bit baffling.

Good luck.

By my estimation, it's more likely to lose 73 Consecutive hands of BJ in a row (with NO pushes!!!) than to roll 18 consecutive Yo's

or 21249555777717.5 times more likely to lose 30 Hands consecutively with no pushes.

(0.491)^73 > (1/18)^18

Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong

If it isn't at least possible that it happened, why do the math?

No-one said it's impossible.
What was said or at least massively implied is that it was incredibly, massively, unbelievably unlikely, and far more unlikely than Alan spouting a false memory for any reason such as maybe promoting his forum, hallucination, intoxication, dementia, posturing, self-agrandisement, trolling, you name it. ( Any one of those things far more likely - you choose.)

Will do as requested. Although your opinions on anything to do with dice were often controversial, to put it mildly, you always acted like a gentleman here, in what must have been for you a hostile environment.

Feel free to say hello at DT anytime. I'm still hoping to resolve our lunch wager sometime.
