I actually disagree with that. I think single-zero Roulette would be a pleasurable game now that I have not been able to justify double-zero for several years due to the House Edge..



If you're worried about the zeros, you
shouldn't play. They are just 2 extra
pockets, if you don't have a game
plan, they won't make any difference.

I submit that they make a difference of nearly double the House Edge.

AHigh,

I'm not going to belabor the point of the, "Lying," accusation. I agree with you that EB's opinion on that matter is wrong, and as evidence, I submit that I personally disagree which makes it a non-Universal. That said, 'Lying,' is an unnecessarily strong accusation when the comments do not refer to anything material.

But it's not the HE that beats you, it's
poor bet selection. If you lose a $100
buy in after making five bets (or 50),
what beat you. The HE or your lack
of a good bet selection. I think you
know the answer.

Lack of good bet selection = wrong guess.

It wasn't a guess, it's a fact. If I select 10
numbers and none of them win, and
I do it five times in a row, my lack of
picking winning numbers is why I
lost, not the HE.

You are the admin and you choose who you want to side with.

Side with EvenBob on this and we are all here watching.

Call it a lie, call it a dubious claim, call it ignorance. It's nothing worth me thinking about and it's pretty clearly untrue in my view.

We can split hairs all day long and that's what I'm here to do. This thread was, at one time, an attempt to further the industry with participation from intelligent forum members.

Now it is what it is.

Basically what I said. Just means you guessed wrong. All the HE comes from the short pays, ie., not paying true odds. That's all. Same with a coin flip. Bet dollars and only get paid 99¢ on a win gives that 50/50 proposition a house edge. Pay it $1 and then no house edge.

Yeah, that site is worse than this one for sure!

But there are similarities, still.

Same guys posting same old tired stuff over and over and the same debates over and over and the same people thinking the same things that are OBVIOUSLY FALSE and the tired responses from folks who know trying to talk sense into idiots and then arguing.

Yeah, lots of similarities, really.



I just re-read this from a week ago. Nothing changes since then. Surprising as I thought things would be different this far in the future.

Bad guessing, bad bet selection, it's why
you lost. Had nothing to do with the HE.
