No I was just pointing out that you came in at a bad time with a bunch of posers (I think you know this) That put a damper on your welcome. Each new surveillance person probably has slightly different information. Each casino is different in what they look for. Each surveillance person probably looks at different stuff.

I'll give you a past example. During the old days of Sigma at certain casinos some of the surveillance guys looked for players who went from playing 1 coin slowly to playing 5 coins fast . If you were caught doing this certain casinos sent security to 86 you. The same casino on a different shift was mostly heat free. It seems that one person didn't care, yet the other person had a hard on for AP's.



I understand what you're saying. Yes, I do agree with the circumstances being less than desirable.

Really, the biggest hesitation I have towards revealing any personal information, is the possibility of words said here, having an effect on my job. I'm more than happy to go into whatever detail is desired in a private message, but publicly, I do tend to be limited in my personal information.

In regards to AP involvement, the current and last casino I have worked Surveillance in, have had incredibly superstitious table game departments. They fall under the typical "get that dealer off the table, he can't make a hand", and have had tendencies of making irrational decisions from time to time. As a department responsible for liability and game protection, it's our job to inform them of the necessary information.

Is someone counting at a table? Maybe. I'll run an analysis of their play, coupled with bet volumes, deviations from strategy, oddities in behavior or other elements, and report back my findings. I'll advise of whether or not their knowledge and displayed skill is a threat to the casino.

Professionally, we have a huge web of various regulations and rules to abide by, and that's what we do. We ensure that the gaming that is being conducted, is being conducted within the legal parameters.

Non professionally, I just want to see players have fun at the table. If someone is able to make a buck or a thousand doing so, I encourage it. I did outline some basics of what our department does in the thread I created, and would be quite happy extending that information in whatever direction aids the forum.

What BBB said, except I might be a little less stringent on the Rules, so she might take action on something that I actually read, but didn't feel compelled to Suspend or formally Warn.

That's not to say that I disagree with any decisions, in general. I don't send the other Admins a message saying, "Yeah, I saw x post, but I think it's within reason enough." Thus, if another Admin Warns/Bans over something, I probably agree that it violates the Rules, just not to enough of an extent to cause me to act.

And...I try to read every thread, but the Election Thread...I'm sorry, sometimes I just can't do it.

Wha...? It's just puppies and kittens in a meat grinder. Just close your eyes and think of England.

(Eh, I guess you couldn't read it with your eyes closed.)

Really?!?! My brother was born with just one!



You only need one kidney to live perfectly well.

There are many people walking around with only 5% kidney function who don't know they have kidney disease. Even with 5% kidney function you won't feel sick.

In my case I became an insulin dependent diabetic when I was 24. My kidneys started to fail when I was 41 and for 15 years I tried to slow their failure with a vegetarian diet.

A little more than 7 years ago I had the transplants after being on dialysis about six months.

Having one kidney does not mean God short changed you. But being born with half a deck upstairs is a legitimate problem.

Yes you can function normal with one. My point was that your statement was wrong on two counts. The fact that all humans are born with two kidneys and the fact there is a god. Neither of which is true.

I forgot where I was posting. Sorry.

To correct myself:

If you believe in God and if you have more than one kidney whether God was responsible for it or not, please consider donating a kidney to someone who needs it. Uncle Sam aka the federal government will pick up the tab.

No need to apologize for anything. Uncle Sam NEVER picks up the tab. The taxes you pay do.
