MDawg, thanks for sharing your trip report, the good and the bad. Iím enjoying, even if I think your baccarat methods arenít any more likely to improve your -EV than any other method.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I think the old-timers can smell somebody on tilt while running bad. Then they have a decision to make, and this guy made it in your favor, forced on you a stop point. Sounds like you knew each other a little, but that's all they need. They have seen it ALL.

You probably owe him a really nice tie, now that you've had time to reflect.


That's exactly what he said actually, later on while I was playing and we started talking a bit, he said "We know when a guy is trying to get even."

I still don't feel like playing today yet, lol.

It was your money. The house no longer owned it.



I doubt it was either of theirs.

So do casinos charge negative interest rates on front money yet?

Thereís no need to state the obvious

Chump I play with credit lines not front money I thought you knew that.

You know, I didn't have BR blocked before but he is now, because his posts have gotten so consistently inane. Harmless, but just too silly no worthwhile content.

Well, if you get $25K ahead, can't you apply a lot of that as front money and use that instead of using credit lines? I can't find any $1,000 bills that will fit in my pockets. But if you wanna walk around with $5,000 chips in your pocket, that saves on giving the cage a chance to figure out they need to fill out a form for the day.

Is $30k a lot for you?

Do you have a consistent income, or did you happen upon a large lump sum of money at some point in your life?

Those are very rude and personal questions so just ignore me, but itís all I can think of when I hear these types of stories.

For me it is more about winning than the dollar amount. What I have won over this year and last year I've kept in an envelope and haven't even spent any of it. Each trip I was bringing that envelope with me on each trip, but by this time it was just too much money I didn't feel comfortable carrying it so I brought along only five thousand. I keep it with me in case I start losing I figure it'll make me more comfortable with just paying off the loss and not thinking that I must get even for that session.

Yes you are correct once you start winning you just deposit those chips on top of your credit line and then your total available becomes more. So yes, when I started my bad run few nights ago I had 76K available as I had deposited $26K in chips and cashed just five hundred to stick in my running envelope, which at that point had just under ten K in that envelope between the four I had won at the first casino this trip, the five I had brought and the five hundred or so I had added to it. (On the last trip, at this particular casino when I won only like $9K early in the trip (I ended up winning abut twenty K at this casino that trip) they wouldn't let me cash the $9K at the beginning they told me if I cashed it all they'd temporarily close my line so I didn't even bother trying to cash or get a check for $26K this time I knew what would happen. But this particular casino is the only one I've played at where they've done that, threatened to close out temporarily my line if I cash out too many chips. When you think about it the reason they do that is exactly in the hopes of a player running bad and losing everything. Chips cashed or locked up in a safe aren't right there to access, while chips deposited are.)

When I got down ten K after losing the 26K, I could have just run up and gotten my envelope and more or less paid off the ten K I was down at the end of that session but I was hot and instead went out on the strip and not back up to the room safe. Luckily it worked out but I don't like the way the night went at all.

I am impressed. I'd think most BIG Players, the ones that run billions through casinos, wouldn't even notice a blip like a $26,000 run.
I lost a dollar yesterday. Had it in my pocket but then it was gone. I was going to walk it off but I'm simply too lazy.
