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



Knowing Maxpen, he might own his own fleet of buses. He still wouldn't ride in one with the peasants,

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.

Considering I have a track record of getting a new vehicle before having to change the oil it is unlikely that one would die, let alone all.😃

Just got back to the suite still hopped up on green tea. I was back and forth for a number of shoes, was down as much as $16K at one point, which is the most I have been down in any session since resuming play in 2018, but I won three big hands 5000 , 5000 , 5500 and made it back to even. Those were, I'll admit it, the biggest hands I have played this entire year and I am not proud of that I "had" to play like that to catch up, but anyway it worked out. In the old days I'd play five grand a hand routinely, but these days, not so much.

And then recharged and ready to go, I caught this shoe

I cleared over twenty five grand on it

yes that's my lucky Paul Newman red sweep 18K Daytona next to my chips.
I was banging the winning cards so hard on the table during the runs that the clasp on my lucky 18K gold bracelet bent open.

I was barely even betting though, the cocktail crew and others were crowded around me saying that I should have cleared $200K on this shoe, and they are right, but even the one and only guy who played with me at the table, who was a non-streak believer, barely cleared any money on the shoe. Still, clearing over twenty five grand on a shoe is nothing to scoff at. The pit boss kept saying "shoe of a lifetime." Who cut the shoe? ME, that's who.

All I did was just keep pressing into each run, but not even hardly hard enough. No brainer, easy shoe.

Anyone who doesn't recognize that this is an easy winner's shoe is a moron who has never won a nickel at gambling in his life.

CHEERS! This is why I love gambling, finishes like this. I actually free handed two more hands after this (to finish off the shoe) which were unpredictable I mean after the last run ended, how could it get any better? Why is it so hard to explain to peeps that after a shoe like this you just get up and leave?

HELLLLLO!

Gotta stop typing now I already woke her up once.

you are in the plus column, that is what matters, not getting there by what kibitzers think is the optimal method.

Risk It All At The Talon Club, The Cosmopolitan's High-Limit Gaming Room | The Manual https://www.themanual.com/culture/the-talon-club-high-limit-betting/

Secrets of Las Vegas's Exclusive High-Roller Cosmopolitan Suite - Bloomberg https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-09-04/secrets-of-las-vegas-s-exclusive-high-roller-cosmopolitan-sweet

Have you ever played Imperial Baccarat at the Palazzo/Venetian? The limits start from $5 to over $1 million. This is the best game to play in Vegas because you can just bet on screen and switch between four different games -- all dealt by a live dealer -- if things go bad on one hand. No dealers or pit bosses to interact with and you can still get points on your Grazie card. Plus, no tip needed! https://www.vegasmessageboard.com/forums/index.php?threads/vegas-high-limit-baccarat-room-reviews.130455/page-2

I like to play the Baccarat where I may touch the cards.

And yes on the Cosmopolitan, but no on the top floor suites - those are for million dollar credit line or million dollar deposited front money players I am not at that level, at least, I don't WANT to be at that level. I have read that Bloomberg article before. It's hilarious, but it's not far from the truth. When we were at our front row center seats at Duran Duran at The Chelsea all this confetti started raining all over us when Rio was being played and I grabbed a piece out of the air and later stuck it into my player card wallet for luck. If you read that article closely some Asian gambler starts freaking out because a lucky piece of cellophane candy wrapper or some such gets thrown out by mistake and he sends the Cosmo butlers to search for it in the hotel trash.

All gamblers are superstitious, when I left the elevator on the way to the high limit this girl got out of the adjoining elevator in front of me half naked walking with her ass right in front of me, I mean so scantily clad that when she walked by security they called out to her and just as I was entering the high limit area, I noticed that they caught up to her and pulled her over and told her she couldn't walk through the casino like that. I viewed it as a lucky sign to be placed randomly behind such an awesome exposed ass, it rivals my wife's.

Anyway, our Cosmo suite is nice, but not quite like those! million dollar ones. One thing I like a lot about the Cosmo suites is the view from the balcony, which at the moment is:


I used to stay all the time at the 1980 sq. ft. Renaissance Suites at the Venetian, and yes I am a player there although these days the suites they toss me are not as large. Unwittingly, I may be getting sucked back into playing big and that was not my intention. Today was a great run, but I intend to take a full day off to get grounded again I actually don't want to be playing five thousand dollar hands again that was not my intention when I started gambling again in 2018. It worked out great this time but I'm not here to play like a madman.

I will say that the general Bacc. players with their systems and trying to read the doughnuts, the fries and the whatever on the computer screen, all seem to lose when run time comes around because they find complicated reasons to disbelieve the runs. Perhaps the reason that I win consistently is that I await these runs patiently and press into them. Also I am old school with two sided pen and paper I don't use the computer screen much. This guy who was at my table who kept leaving the run or betting very small along it told me later that it never occurred to him to play runs he always tried to anticipate what would happen next and usually convinced himself that a run was about to end. I told him that in my opinion the only way to win at Baccarat is to wait for a shoe with runs and press into them, hoping that the runs will repeat, one long line after another, which is exactly what happened today. I tend to get at least one shoe like the above per session, meaning - no, this was not a "shoe of a lifetime" as the pit boss said, but it was definitely a great shoe.

Hi Tiger, actually I have never played at Paris. These days I play at Wynn/Encore, Venetian, T.I., Cosmo and...going to stay and play at Palms later this month. I'll update on the "new" (as in newly remodeled) Palms after staying there. T.I. has only 1 or 2 tables it is very old school no electronic shoe.

I have not played at Aria yet but it looks like great action in there when I have visited their high limit pits.
