It doesnt matter what anyone else thinks. When I bet money, I am trying to WIN money. This bullshyte about gambling being entertainment is absolute crap!

6. To have fun, play by the rules, because it can stop you from playing and having fun.


Like said before, what about people who play to win and don't have fun if they know they are being sucked out?
Advantage play still follows at least the official rules, and as for things the casino doesn't like - if you didn't have fun doing what it likes, you aren't risking anything.

My point is that doing ANY thing of a recreational, non-productive, or of a play nature requries:
1. checking your brain to some or any degree,


Really?
Some of the things I enjoy, and which are clearly recreational, non-productive and of a play nature include:
Poker - turn your brain off and say goodbye to your stack.
Target shooting - turn your brain off and make the blind laugh.
Competitive driving - turn your brain off and they'll be scraping it off.
That's enough incentive to keep my brain on.

When I play games, I use my brain. A lot. And I'm not doing anything there that will end up with me dead or broke.

Thats where the problem in this discussion
lies. Every player who enters the casino is
there to win. If you're there to lose, you have
a screw lose. Most people don't know they have
no chance of staying ahead of the casino, and
thats fine with management. The few of us
that do know the truth are tolerated by the
casino until we start winning. Dan's trying to
dumb us down into believing winning is wrong
and beating the casino at their own game is
a crime. He wants us to bend over and take the
whacks with the big paddle and cry out 'Thank
you sir, may I have another?' He wants us to
lose and like it.

I think kp is worried, all he ever talks
about is somebody changing his mind.
