I would have considered that Live Streaming to entertain the shuttered populace was an essential service similar to the free movies on the internet and the Let's Get Through This Together channels on youtube.

You could talk with her over FaceTime or Zoom. It’d be like a video version of Charlie’s Angels! She’d be Charlie, you’d be an Angel. Or maybe an Angle.

We are scheduled to have a show this Thursday at 3:00, the usual time. I'm going to keep the topic on Vegas scams. If you have any more to add to the list, please do.

The video will look like this test video.

I think there will be a way to have audience participation, but I don't know how that will work at this point. We may just do this one the two of us without an audience and post it after we're done. Heather is more of the technology expert.

On the positive note,
As we all work from home, there have been a few Zoom meetings...
Here is a new dressing code

I’d rather have to be a lucky player than good one.

"Wimbledon reportedly paid $2 million a year for pandemic insurance for the last 17 years

(Total: $34 Million)

For this year's cancellation as a result of the Coronavirus, Wimbledon will reportedly receive $141 million from the policy."

shell game, mentioned as one of the scams ~ as far as I can tell you wouldn't be able to know which shell even if you can do it yourself, however he probably has "patterns" which you could study standing off to the side before betting



three card monte might be totally beatable once you know what he is doing.

In both cases I imagine they catch on quick that you have an angle and will refuse to bet anymore

the next time Dame Fortune toys with your heart, your soul and your wallet, raise your glass and praise her thus: “Thanks for nothing, you cold-hearted, evil, damnable, nefarious, low-life, malicious monster from Hell!” She is, after all, stone deaf. ... Arnold Snyder

Thanks for the summary G!

There is another socially-distant live stream scheduled at the usual time for this Thursday. It will be an AMA so I welcome all questions.

As a reminder, we will have another Live Stream this Thursday. This will be a rare one with a topic, which shall be Vegas Scams. I welcome all ideas. I'll get it started with the following:

Resort fees
Time share pitches
Night clubs
Night club "VIP" passes.
Strip clubs
Taxis
Low-budget shows
Paid parking
Street photo characters
"Free" CD people
Three card Monty
"Free" girls to your room.

Granted not all of these are 100% scams. For example, strip clubs are not all bad, but EVERYTHING in them is way overpriced, especially the girls. One should have some knowledge about what to expect before going.

I welcome ALL other ideas. I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot.

Gambling scams: IE creators (people who trick ploppies into playing and loading up UX and other build a bonus games and then get them to leave so they can scoop up the value themselves)

Baccarat scammers who claim they allays win at baccarat with the intentions of later charging you upfront for lessons or some variation of that. They do it on other games as well, but for some reason Baccarat seems the most popular.

NEVER GIVE YOUR MONEY TO ANYONE RELATED TO GAMBLING UNLESS YOU KNOW THEM WELL!!

Never speculate, if the math doesn't add up to over 100% DONT DO IT.
If and when the math does add up to a good situation.....ALWAYS be in control of your own money, chips, free play, machine, cards, ID, slot tickets, passwords, social security number, name and whatever else you can think of.



Check, verify, recheck, re-verify and verify the verifiers.
If it's too good to be true it probably is.
Don't let your enthusiasm, greed, and hunger for those Benjamin's Cloud your judgement.
♪♪Now you swear and kick and beg us That you're not a gamblin' man Then you find you're back in Vegas With a handle in your hand♪♪ Your black cards can make you money So you hide them when you're able In the land of casinos and money You must put them on the table♪♪ You go back Jack do it again roulette wheels turinin' 'round and 'round♪♪ You go back Jack do it again♪♪
