Got my "once per trip" backoff. Same place every time. Mo and Young were practically racing through the pit to get to me first.

Otherwise, no real heat anywhere else. My sessions are too short.

When I'm performing acts of casino malfeasance, I can play longer because they have no idea what I'm doing.

Often they don't. It's enough to know what you're doing - to stay safe.

And you will happily take the money that you know you did NOT legitimately win.



I never asked anyone to pay me. I just signaled that I did not want another card.

It's not about asking, it's about taking it, accepting it, when knowing......

I went through a Jack-in-the-box drive through a while ago, and paid for a sandwich with a $10, but got change for a $20 via a "dealer" mistake, so to speak. I didn't ask to be wrongfully overpaid, but I knew, so I returned the $10 extra dollars, considering that I didn't earn it or win it.

Also I will use something that happened on my last trip as illustration.

The player next to me in 3CP had 3-4-5 offsuit for a straight and raised. The dealer flips TTT for trips. Dealer scoops both the players ante and raise and pays him 6 to 1 on the PP. Now, I have played with this player several times, and I know he is experienced in 3CP, experienced enough to "point out wrong money" if for example the dealer paid his A-high when dealer has a pair of twos.

But he didn't KNOW that the ante wager pushes on a losing straight, and neither did the dealer, and neither did the floorman notice, until I pointed it out to them. That's why I feel zero obligation to point out dealer errors in my favor I do notice.



Which is quite different than feeling 100% obligated to simply point out any error that results in wrong money, in any direction.

A dealer or clean player is very much like a referee or baseball umpire's obligation is to point out the actual result of the play, and without regard to having favorites. All plays should be brought to the actual correct result regardless of favorites from "my side," "their side."

Anybody ever try this?

I was playing heads up with a very fast dealer. And was dealt a 4-card 22. I gave a quick STAND signal and was promptly paid. You'll be amazed how often this works.



...now that seems like the kind of thing that could land you behind bars if they could prove it intentional. (Posting to the Internet that it was seems like a good start.)
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

I can picture it now......Civilians in handcuffs escorted from the blackjack table to jail for adding their hands wrong. That's the funniest damn thing I've heard in a long, long time.

Leaving now for the strip casinos. Good night all.
