Thanks.

It's only Superrick, out trying to debunk "the mad professor" once again.

He's on another thankless snipe hunt.

And now for something completely different:



MrV, are you still hanging out on Burnside in Oldtown? If so, I recommend Dan and Louie's oysterbar.

I wander down there occasionally.

Not an oyster fan, I've only been in that place a couple times, but it is a Portland classic.

Alas, I REALLY miss what used to be across the street / alley from it: The 24 hour Church of Elvis.

It moved to NW Couch St. awhile ago.

This thread sure took a turn for the insane. This guy surely has years and years of interesting stories to tell from 40 years of dealing craps, and it's been derailed because it has been posted on some 'dice influencing' message board where one person makes more that 50% of the posts?

I'd urge you to ignore and reconsider and regale us with some more stories from 40 years in the game.

Don't call him surely

If you are really that bored you can go into any casino or bar full of old worn down patrons and listen to there stories of past glory, old people love to talk.

I think you can see why he won't answer some questions. Identifiable guy.

Many craps dealers were identifieable.
Some movie stars would fly into Vegas and the casino would call in his favorite dice dealers just to be there for him even if it wrecked their work schedule. One man owned a car lot and gave a new car to the entire craps crew... you think that happens without the crew being known beyond just their name tags. Many dice dealers had to remember alot of family details and sports teams about various customers.

To customers in a casino the dealers can all be a blur but good dealers focus on service and individuals as well as what number just rolled.

We have a winner. According to WikiLeaks, MrRoller is the same Mad Professor that hides behind the curtain.

There is no evidence on this forum to indicate that MrRoller and Mad Professor are the same person. I am removing your accusation in the quoted thread and warning you not to continue making it. Thank you.
