No.
About 2002, or about ten years at least. LOL.
And Bob, did you retire on your card-counting profits? More LOL....
Gaming mathematicians who know card counting cold, have to take day time jobs - and for the dark hats no less - to make good $$ in the industry.

Bob, who are you, and what do you do in the gaming industry?

I don't know you Paigowdan but based on your posts it's hard to think of someone better who deserves all this great success. I wish you success in the future.

By the way... I'm noticing a correlation between the good posters here (yourself, Wizard, 1BB, Teddys, ibeatyouraces to name a few) and gambling success or success in the industry in general. Don't let the jealous haters distract you.

There's nothing wrong with Dan. His views are
the polar opposite of mine, thats all.

I was never much of a Banker, though I did bank at low-limit games. Some Players have huge swings in betting, notably Asian gamblers. Others bet large using one of the two alternating decks, being "lucky" on the one particular color. One of the reasons I did not bank often was that in Foxwoods and MS at the time the Banker MUST use House Way. If I had trip Aces KQ, I could not play the KQ as 2-card hand. I would be inclined to do this if Banking.

Sometimes playing 6-10 hands gives one the feel of the table. I never went in and Banked every other hand played.

Banking does lower the H.A. significantly, but puts Banker at odds of of up to 6 average bets against you... not for the faint of heart, and bankroll swings (dat ol debil variance) are expected. If I wanted to bank, at a $20 table, I would not consider a buy-in of less than $600. JMH2%
Some people need to reimagine their thinking.

We are now in 15 states.
Not a single casino operator cancelled or withdrew the product, just a Phenomenal start.
It's like a budding screenwriter on his first attempt being told by Martin Scorsese or the Coen brothers, "Yeah, we signed your screenplay for $2.5M, and we start filming in New York City next month, with Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, and Robert DeNiro as the leads. And no, Tim Burton won't get near it. And would you like to be on the set? We couldn't get you a trailer, so we're putting you up at the Carlyle..."

My wife and I have bought new cars off the lot, (Gaudin Ford of Las Vegas), we see shows like Smokey Robinson at the Cannery, or Aretha Franklin at Ceasars palace (the upcoming Sunday, July 15th show at Ceasars). Front row, Orchestra. Looking back, it was a lot of work, but it is also that surreal for me...

...I have bad dreams where I step into a nasty Vietnam war type of bear or booby trap at a casino set by Lucifer, or Roger Snow, or Rob Saucier or somebody, (it varies), saying"Na-HA, Dan! It WAS just a fucking dream..awake..awake to misery and poverty...CALL some more dice for $7.25 plus shitty tips...your dream is over..."

Edit: Gaming Industry Corporately planning and strategic meeting...



Well I did look forward to playing the game- once again congrats!
Lack of prior planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

I tend to like Dan (even though I only know him from here) and wish him the best of luck. It's great to see a "little guy" do well. I do have a problem with the statement:

I don't know of any Dealer that lives in poverty unless their lifestyle doesn't match with their income. Cleaners have a pretty crappy job and make crappy money, kitchen utility workers have a pretty crappy job and make crappy money. Dealers do pretty well and too many compain just to hear themselves talk. Work indoors, get benefits, paid timeoff, work an hour and a half then get a 30 minute break, do you job correctly and nobody bothers you. Not a bad gig and far from misery and poverty.
