Let me let this rip:

PaiGowDan politely discusses BOTH the game development process - and the WHOLE AP issue in an interview.

And I actually defended some AP stuff - especially on slots where no coat hanger or light wand was used.

Shoot, you be the judge, - and go at me if you feel need be. It was the High Roller Network who brought this stuff to us, credit to them.

First of all, this is all about table action, 100%.
Secondly, it is a real olive branch from the (not so) dark side.

Listen and learn. It's not so bad.

Very good interview Dan. I think that you handled the AP questions calmly and effectively - I'm sure you had to bite your tongue a little :-)

Very funny interview, Dan. Really hilarious. A year or
6 months ago, AP was dead according to you. There
were no AP's making a living at it, AP was a joke. Now,
today, you say Oh No, AP's are ruining gambling for
everybody! They're costing Mr and Mrs Joe Blow player,
instead of their stay being $80, its now $120 and all
because of those wascally AP's who you said 6 months
ago weren't a threat to anybody. Now you say the casinos
are so threatened and so paranoid, they scour the AP sites
looking for clues on whats new. A 180 degree turn around
on what you said before you got this new job.

You're such a company man, Dan. You have no opinion
of your own, obviously. Its whatever talking points your
industry puts out this week, thats who you are. Whatever
credibility you had, you certainly blew in this interview.

And the 'partnership' jibberish. I'm a partner with the casino
when I play, to help them make their bottom line so they can
keep offering their 'entertainment'.? I have to strive to be 'lucky'
and not use any kind of advantage, so the casino can get as
much of my money as possible. Do they teach you this stuff or
do you make it up. Hit me in the head with a hammer and tell
me how much I should like it, thats what you're doing.

[....Oh, it's you, Bob.....]

Game protection, as well as AP is never dead, it is always a concern and some component of offering a table game.

It's just dead in the sense that it is no longer a really good career option anymore.

Come to play - yes.

Come to "work" - not so fast.

Then WHY are you sooooooo worried about it in
this interview???? Go and listen, Dan. You make
it sound like AP is bringing down casinos and
gambling as we know it. If its so hard to do,
and there are so few doing it as a career, why
even bring it up let alone make such a huge
deal out if it? Why do you think you should get
to have this both ways, Dan? Its a real threat
or it isn't, figure out which side of the street you're on.

Us AP's already know the truth. We scare the living
bejesus out of the industry and they will go to any
length to stop us.

You're way off, Bob. It is a minor issue that'll finally be resolved. And me and teliot really made a difference, and we are proud.

I'm really comfortable, super comfortable with the way the industry is going forward, the way the industry is waking up, and the way the industry is responding. And Crockford's really and actually helped immensely, greatly.

The whole sense of that interview is that all is good.

Responding to WHAT? Waking up to WHAT? You have said
over and over and over and over that AP is dead, Dan. That
the industry thinks AP its a joke. Do I have to go back and find
recent quotes? Now that you have a real Dark Side job, oh no,
AP is a huge threat! So which is it Dan, is AP dead or is it ruining
gambling for every Mr and Mrs High School President as you state several
times in your interview?

I already know the answer, Dan. Its whatever is convenient for you
to say, thats where you stand. As a dealer it was, yawn, its not a
threat, who cares. Now that you've moved up the ladder, you change
your story to AP is crippling the industry. Now we can see, yawn, its
just Dan, he'll say whatever he's told to say, ignore him.
