I've seen 16+ pass line points missed many times. That's main points missed; not counting any natural comeout winners or crap losers.

Dan Mahowny experienced a hellish losing streak at the end of Owning Mahowny.

He lost millions, then went prison. It was not a good day for the Iceman.

That didn't really happen, it was just in the movie. If you read the book, he didn't go on such an insane winning-then-losing-it-all-back streak like he did at the end of the film. That said, it did make for good cinema.

Craps - 25+ Consecutive Losing Sessions over a 5 month period.

Blackjack - 4 Separate 20+ Consecutive losing hands in a one week period.


I'm still waiting and looking forward to see someone beat my dubious records.
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

I have faith in teddy's once he sets a goal.
Shed not for her the bitter tear Nor give the heart to vain regret Tis but the casket that lies here, The gem that filled it Sparkles yet

The first time I went to a casino was on my honeymoon when I was 25 years old. I am now 61. I have never had a winning year gambling in casinos. How's that for a losing streak?

That is not necessarily a big deal, depending on how you bet. In particular, if you press on each winning bet, almost all your sessions will be losers.

Was channel surfing and came across Philip Seymour Hoffman
He always catches my eye due to his great acting
The movie is Owning Mahowny
What a movie and based on a true story

I picked this thread because this movie was mentioned
What an unusual thread, last 3 members nuked

I know about Buzz, why were Alan and Axiom nuked?

As I recall, Alan resigned, AoC self-nuked when the board was sold. I could be wrong.
