In the same field stand both a mighty oak tree and a willow tree. The willow tree envies the power and strength that the oak tree possesses. One day a storm, with whipping winds and torrential rain, makes its way through the field. After the storm passes, the willow tree notices that the oak tree has fallen over in the storm. In a state of confusion, she asks the farmer what happened to the oak tree. The farmer tells the willow tree that although the oak was mighty and solid, it was also rigid and inflexible and when the winds were too much for it to resist, the oak tree collapsed under the pressure. The willow thought about herself for a minute. She realized that her ability to survive the storm was due to her flexibility and adaptability as she was able to bend with the wind to weather the storm.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I think you just broke a few people hearts!

Was that the part Mike edited out? I have been saying that since the beginning. Whatever Mike eluded to in his report of a possible advantage, I have no doubt it was somthing so insignificant that it would be a huge stretch of the imagination to actually call it an advantage.

For instance: If I were to play a machine with a HA of 99% and I got back just slightly over 1% in overpriced high-end comped rooms, it would be a stretch to call that an advantage.

I hate to suspend you again so shortly after your return, but this post violates the terms of your truce. It is quite clear who you are talking about. This is your second warning today. There will not be a third.



In fairness to KewlJ, though he's not getting suspended for this one anyway, I was the first one to mention MDawg by name. I had actually forgot that KewlJ wasn't supposed to reference him in any posts, or I wouldn't have done it. KewlJ's response is (though indirectly) 100% my fault.

Everything is always your fault Mission.

He never alluded to any advantage.
Somebody imagined that he did due to confirmation bias.

There is something to be said for free speech, even for system players making claims that defy gambling math and principals. BUT there HAS to be push back allowed, by members, players and math experts and the emphasis shouldn't be if some small insult was involved. T

THAT results in a protection of the person making these goofy claims, and results in him/her essentially using and manipulating this forum's good name and Mike's good name as gambling math expert to further their agenda....whatever that may be? One person is running around on other forums, calling his claims and play "Wizard verified". If Mike is ok with that, whatever, but I object to that on Mike's behalf.



There is a lot of information to cover in the above quote that I feel should be discussed here. Starting with the term "Wizard verified"
First, I do not think anyone who is making claims of success in whatever field of choice should not be responsible for what is said by any supporters of his/her claims. Now the person or persons who are making those claims of Wizard verified are not lying. They are just using a term that can easily be interpretational. Someone who is trying to be cunning would be hoping that the term Wizard verified carries more weight than the terms of the actual agreement that took place. People who pay attention realize that the Wizard observed and verified the terms of the agreement nothing more.

Now for KewlJ, to make the argument that the person making the "goofy claims" has protection and is manipulating this forum's good name and Mike's good name as a gaming math expert to further their agenda is actually attempting to do what he is accusing someone else of. KewlJ, further stating that he objects to the term Wizard verified on Mike's behalf is the ultimate disingenuous hypocrisy that frankly my head is spinning. I do not say this lightly as there is a long history to go by. Not to mention KewlJ, actually looking out for someone else first and not himself especially the Wizard of all people is just possibly him in the early stages of schizophrenia.

I will gladly take any punishment that is given to me for giving a different perspective on this matter.

If someome can quote The Wizard's post where he talks about Mdawg's play, I would appreciate it, I have no clue where to find the adventures of MD since being banished to the hidden realm.

I don't know if it matters but I am going to request that BoSox not be suspended for the above nasty remark. I don't know what has gotten into him lately that he is filled with such hate towards me, but if getting this off his chest helps him, I would like to do my part to help him move forward.

And just when you were getting to be less WMOATish.


Unfortunately, that's earned you a grade demerit.
