When I got backed off at the Western (to include the El Cortez, Vegas Club and Gold Strike) the suit offered to buy me a drink at bar. He was very cordial and seemed to see advantage play for the game that it is.



Gold Strike? The property in Jean, NV? I thought that was an MGM property... Perhaps you meant Gold Spike?

That I believe. My problem is, I keep forgetting that most
players think the fat guy in the suit that started 6 weeks
ago is the 'pit boss'. They think every suit in every casino
is the pit boss.

So when the Church guy says he had dinner with pit bosses,
I take him at his word that it was THE pit boss, and doubt
he's telling the truth. When in fact, he probably had dinner
with the fat guy in the ill fitting suit and is calling him the
pit boss because he doesn't know any better.

Based on my experience, if he picked up the check, he definitely was not the pit boss.

All right, I'm pretty much done with this subject. I
think the documentary was severely edited to remove
any hint of emotional responses to what was happening.
Everybody in this is even keeled and thoughtful, nobody
ever gets mad, upset, depressed, anxious, resentful,
regretful, they all seem to be on massive amounts of
Valium or something. Even when they're trying to root
out possible theives in their midst, its like they're discussing
mowing the lawn or washing the car.

They seem to want to show the world how superior being
a Christian is. They decided to play BJ, did it with barely
mussing their hair, and have moved on. The total lack of
drama makes it a very boring 90min, but Christians don't
experience emotions like normal people, apparently, they
are above it.

I did like when one of them told a suit when he was being
86'd, that hey, you tell us on TV to come and get rich quick,
and I'm doing it and you're kicking me out. But they talk
about getting 86'd so much that its a good thing to them,
it lets them know how dangerous they are. Yawn..
