just a dash of each bottle on each pec, luck on the left, money on the right (or vice versa, but only one dash, and do not mix) spray a whiff of the Gamblers aerosol overhead while prepping in the bathroom, and I'm unstoppable.
I lost $8K at BJ. This was mostly during a couple of sequences when the count and flow were beautiful including in three big hands the dealer got the ace underneath blackjack on one when I landed a twenty and in two others where the dealer didn't bust even with a five underneath and ten on top and I landed something less (but a pat hand) than what she ended up with. I was actually up (not a lot, maybe five hunny) earlier during the play when the count was terrible and I was betting table minimum ($100.). Just the way it goes sometimes.
So then I went to Bacc. and pulled a ten K marker and another eight K and lost them both. I had plenty of hands where I won big, but I didn't press hard enough on a great shoe where I could have won everything back, but didn't.
But really, the main mistake I made was that I was playing somewhat recklessly because I was 26K ahead from the session two days ago, and felt like so what I'm playing with the house's money. I should have quit once I was still ahead half of it 13K or so but I didn't. Anyway I ended up even, pulled another ten K marker, and lost that too, lol, so I stopped down 10K. I had the presence of mind to quit then.
Then I walked all the way from one end of the strip to the other not even quite sure of what I was going to do when I got to one of the casinos at the other end where I had more lines. I wanted to cool off so I just walked. It wasn't really even that late at that moment maybe like ten PM. I had been drinking green tea all night and I had to use the high limit bathroom at the Mirage on the way to my destination, and I really wasn't feeling my best.
Anyway I got to my intended casino and asked them for $50K, my whole line. BACCARAT. To my surprise, they actually wouldn't give it to me. They said, "It's a courtesy not a right." I had never encountered something like that. "We'll give you ten, if you need more we'll give it to you." Actually they were right, I was still a little hot and I was going to just slam ten K down in one hand, but since they gave me only $10K I wasn't feeling like doing that.
Anyway, I putzed around for Bacc. shoe after shoe, up a few K, down a few K, finally I hit a shoe where I won over five grand just on three tie bets that were perfectly lined up exactly where they should have been, and about five grand on other bets, really good shoe, and I left. So I won back the ten that I lost at the first casino. But I couldn't even get all the cash at once because I didn't want a transaction report so I got half, will go back Monday to cash the other half. I don't really feel like playing again until maybe Sunday the whole experience left me a little shaky I thought I had gotten past playing "catch up" but that's exactly what I was doing and the main reason I dumped almost $30K in one night in one casino.
It's funny though thinking back it was exactly like Joe Pesci in Casino demanding a FIFTY K MARKER! but Robert DeNiro granting him only ten. But I just accepted it didn't start hitting the shift manager with a phone. He's an old school guy been in the business forever he doesn't play by the same rules as everyone else.
What's also funny in a way is that after they gave me the ten grand I ran into a host I had no idea still worked there I hadn't seen in over a decade. Hugs and felicitations, and then she went over and talked to the shift manager. I am certain they were pulling my bank balance on my main account because after we had said hello, she had gone to the cage and come back and asked me briefly if I wanted to keep such and such bank as my main one for my account, and then I could see them visibly relax after they saw whatever they saw on the screen, which was my balance, which it's been extremely high over the past few months. The reason I think they even put me under such scrutiny is other than a little play I gave them a week ago where I stopped in for some face time and won a couple hundred, I hadn't played at this particular casino in almost a year.
Anyway I'm still ahead what I won in the first week at the first casino, but that's not a huge amount, like four grand. And the trip goes on! but I don't feel like playing again anytime soon. I've earned a lot of comps tho, lol, just extended the suite here a few more nights. Now they have me as losing about ten here, my first loss here ever.
Anyway I'm still ahead
There’s no need to state the obvious

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.

I'm surprised MDawg hasn't thought to blame the guy for disrupting the flow of his play and making him lose. If only he'd had the full 50K, he could have played through the short bad streak and come away, up by hundreds of thousands.
It was your money. The house no longer owned it.
" I was 26K ahead from the session two days ago, and felt like so what I'm playing with the house's money"

Thats how you know he isnt looking at like a job.
When you make money at a job you dont say "well, its my bosses money"
That's your money. You earned it.
