I think it's is because it takes the least amount of brains to play.

I can just picture Mickey sitting at his computer, about to fall out of his chair, cursing, banging the keyboard with one hand , a un-ashed cigarette hanging out of his mouth all while chugging a bottle of Jack Daniels with the other hand. No doubt it was all fueled by that chick he was going on about the other night.

I like that scenario.

Made me think of Jack Nicholson in One flew over the cuckoo's nest, with of course Mickey playing Jack and one of those others being Nurse Ratchet.


I hope he makes it back from the shock treatment, and didn't get the lobotomy.


I thought he was being perfectly pc, for a guy that didn't push a desk his whole life. That just goes to character.

My dual Lab's pairs are performing wonderful q]

Okay, I'm ready for a safer progression than my D'Alembert. Do you have written this dual labby anywhere?

I've never really paid attention to bacc table limits in AC. Usually, they're the same as PGP, which would be $25 at most shops. Where is GR8 finding a $10 game?



You can find $15 tables at Showboat and Resorts and $20 at Borgata from time to time. I've never seen $10 though - especially not at Borgata where I think he claims to play usually. Revel is typically $50, Taj Mahal and Caesar's are always $25, Trump Plaza only has it open when the casino is packed (I've never seen it open!) not sure about any of the other places.

Something to keep in mind is the possibility that this feud (between egalite and gr8player) has been going on for quite some time.
At the time of the communication between them, $10 tables may well have been more common than in today's environment.

For that matter, one of the casinos on my route still offers a $5 MiniBac game! (Don't get all excited about it; game conditions are horrible, and the place itself is a real dump.)

Probably best to let these two settle the matter amongst themselves.
Doesn't mean it's not fun to watch, though.

Had he not stated he bet $10 per hand, I would not have deleted the email, obviously I didn't respond and say, hey your nuts. I simply deleted the email and never contacted him again and left it at that. It was only when he decided to start badgering me and claiming to bet $400 per hand, did it all kick off. He could be betting 2 units @ 20, I've no idea, neither do I care.


My favorite is when gr8 posted his thread "The chicken or the egg" here, and you pointed out that he posted the same exact message (verbatim!) on GG over 3 years ago. He even began his post with the same 5 dots "....." LOL!

the classic for me is when he asked members of GG to post results and he was going to tell them what came next. I literally did fall out of my chair reading that.

It was available. I think those that got to read it couldn't get their head around it. Most simply want after you lose a bet you bet x, if you lose again bet y and if you lose again bet z, they need something written in stone. My approach is not that clear cut, it is more of a concept, a concept of clearing an initial goal target safely in your own time. Unlike a lot of negative progressions out there, this has a lot of scope for the player to make judgement calls, nothing is defined or set in concrete. A few friends I have shown it to and given 1 on 1 (limited, trying to avoid obvious coaching at the tables) table tuition like it a lot.

I don't want to post in-depth details on any forum, other than I'm running two sets of pre-defined cancellations strings, the difference between the strings is a factor of 10 ($10 & $100), at the $50 table, ($50 & $500) at the VIP table it is a factor or 5 ($100 & $500). Having been around the blocks a bit, I know we can not predict jacksh1t in this game. Personally I don't subscribe to flat betting, or betting positively. So I designed a staking plan that if I were to sit at a table and due to my predictive skills lose say the first 8 bets I place, I am not sent to the wall nor my bankroll put under any pressure. Even horrendous loss strings later in the piece should not damage your bankroll if you have the fortitude to implement any of the many defensive moves to protect your cash which is always the number 1 priority.

Does the concept work against a 50-50 guessing game were there is no edge in determining which side is going to win, hmmmm hand on heart, while it has gotten rocky at times, it is fairly robust and I have survived each time, now on my 19th winning session. The problem is I could clone myself 5 times and play the same shoe and end up with each clone ending up with 5 different outcomes. It is difficult to explain in print even if I choose to do so, if you travel to me and I would be willing to explain and demonstrate it in action. Suffice to say it's roots lie with the old multi-bank Garcia / HP Johnson progression methods and Victors VLS Labochere threads on the defunct VIP Lounge forum.
