When I started playing again in 2018, after a decade or so hiatus, it was just for the purpose of having fun and comps. I used to play much much harder, and did usually win (over all way ahead), and since returning I actually haven't had a losing trip yet (better knock on something...I am prepared to lose but haven't yet) and get comp'ed a fair amount.

I recall reading something by someone here to the effect of that they will not comp you if you do not lose. Nonsense. My comps are based solely on the theoretical loss since I have not lost only won. We just spent a week at a different resort here and everything was comp'ed. We left that resort to go to the current one where the suite is again all paid for up front, for a full week, most if not all of the food and beverage will be covered, and even though I am not a madman player any longer (my usual average I think is around $300. per hand although they have me down for $800. on this current trip, so maybe I am wrong about my average and it is higher than I think), perks we recently got include free tickets to Bill Burr and Duran Duran, with the DD tickets being front row center. I actually was surprised we got front row center, my play is good but then again maybe it's also to do with that I sent my host three very expensive Italian designer ties after the last trip. That last trip he comp'ed us two full weeks in a suite and I won a fair amount of money too.



You don't know what your average bet is within $500 on less than a $1000? Yet you know you're ahead? Give it a rest already. Take a break and enjoy a nice ice cold water.

Uhoh, somebody said something, sure it was something along the lines of jealousy and envy from my enemies.

Yes, it is much easier to continue spreading BS when you don't have to see someone calling you out on it.

This forum probably has more "enemies" and blocking than (well I will spare the reference), it is making this thread spicy though. I don't understand the drama over gambling discussions.

Gandler, what it comes down to is that if I lost money at gambling I wouldn't bother with it. Not that I am trying to make a living out of it, but I'd just pay cash for everything versus gamble if I were unable to maintain a consistent "ahead" status. This, for whatever reason, these blocked guys who sit at home who either don't (because they sit at home) or can't afford to gamble (can't afford because they suck at it and cannot win), cannot seem to fathom. So I blocked them a little while back and I don't think I'm missing anything, I can read their lips without hearing.

Maxpen is not someone who stays at home because they dont know how to win. Or cant afford it.

He is pretty successful at what he does I believe

Only reason Maxpen might stay at home is because his car died and he refuses to take a bus
