Man, you've got it bad.



Hi. Are you meaning to imply that I'm falling off the wagon so to speak, or am addicted to some far reaching extent, or what? Confidence has to play a role in gambling, otherwise, why do it?

Whereas I agree with you that confidence in gambling is not a bad thing, confidence alone cannot change or even affect the outcome of a spin of the roulette wheel.

The only thing that can affect the outcome of a roulette wheel are the canoes and number divisions......

Still, I admire your tenacity, good luck to you.

This streak stuff is nonsense; streaks provide no predictive value. You are betting with a disadvantage on every bet. You believe it not because it make sense (it doesn't make sense) but because you WANT to believe it. This belief is not a good thing for someone with a gambling addiction, as it provides an excuse to do what you really want to do (ie, gamble).

I'm not saying that people shouldn't gamble. But they should do it with their eyes open.

$25 European Roulette can be found at the Venetian.
$100 European Roulette with La Partage/En Prison rules can be found at

* All MGM Properties
- Bellagio
- Mirage
- Rio
* The Wynn
* The Cosmopolitan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/En_prison

The game can be beaten! You simply have to stop while you are ahead in order to beat the game and bet big enough that it matters until then.

Most people, no matter how much you are ahead it is never enough.

GOOD LUCK!

Thanks for the information and upbeat reply. So many here seem in denial about the streaks aspect and how you can in fact get far enough ahead to quit a winner.

An overall good set of points and principals, however, streaks do occur and if you aren't afraid to jump on them and then retreat at the end of same, you can walk away with real money. Wait for the opportunity by slowly pressing up to your comfort level maximum, then ride it out! Nothing lasts forever of course but it can be a winning ride and conclusion.

I think it "can" be beaten meaning "it is possible to come out ahead", not " this is a sustainable way to make money // play with an edge". In a way, I've beaten Pai Gow poker. Played a few hands and ended up +actual. Never played again.

I like that guy's name. It sounds like a pain relief product from the makers of the orange drink the astronauts used.
