Wow, I did not know that.



If you don't read all of the contract looking for an angle... you might not be an AP. ;)
May the cards fall in your favor.

Wow, I did not know that. That actually does make these rather useful in some situations. That last time I stopped in one of those places I looked at the fee structure and calculated an annual interest rate of over 500% and proceeded to run out the door.

I do rescind my entry!

That's ridiculous and sounds like usury I would find out the maximum allowable annual percentage rate for that state. Perhaps they find a way around it. I have never used a payday loan service but I have heard horror stories. It seems like it's a vicious cycle for some. On the flip side I heard some people were purposely scamming them.

It seems there's one on just about every corner in Vegas.

I know it seems predatory but I'm sure there's been people who have used one in a desperate situations to pay rent or something and it saved their ass.

I would never judge anyone for stiffing them.

It's probably a good business opportunity, I can't blame someone for owning one.

If you think you can't count a six deck shoe because there are "too many cards" youuuuu might not be an AP.

You might be an AP if you call Bob Nersesian or Bob Loeb to help win an argument with your wife.

Technically, the Savannah and the Desert in Africa are very different places. Africa is a really big continent. But your contest entry has been duly noted ;-) tee, hee
< OK> this is an edit, Odious replied before I snuck it in. "The Desert is an entirely different cheat, most haven't heard of it......" Edit of an edit?
Youuuuuu MIGHT be a 'rascal' if.......(nevermind ;-)...2F

Technically...



that's fine, Romes went over my head with that one anyway. Then again, I might definitely am not an AP [unless you count over-comping on rare occassions]

variation of previous replies...

you might not be an AP if if you feel counting an 8 deck shoe is too hard due to the 396 cards.
