Someone asked to make a thread to start planning and getting a list together. I figured I would take the lead. I can't edit this post but maybe BBB will edit it for me every once in awhile with the list of people. Next posts we can discuss what "events" there shall be. I believe last year the dinner was discussed in PMs or texts. Not sure if that is needed or wanted but we can. This will be my first time coming and I can not remember what type of things were done. I am up for pretty much anything for any amount of time.

The date will be May 11th 2019 and possibly May 12th if people are interested in getting together

If you are planning on attending please post in this thread. If you plan on coming but don't want to make it public maybe send me a PM and I will keep a tally so we know how many are needed for dinner reservations if they are needed.

That probably isn't a bad gig assuming you can get enough people each day. I would have tried to organize with the other hustlers in order to keep the going rate low. Then if anyone got out of line ya'll could have... well you know.

You are too jaded. Coupon runs are fun when they are once a year. Back when the LVA was more social, I went on a couple group runs that were interesting. Just getting away from the strip is +EV.

Regular people wont do jt. They want the bonus for themselves

I tried a "Homeless Hustle" years ago

Offer 6 homeless people free trip, free food both breakfast and dinner, free alcohol.

Should be a lead-pipe cinch, right?

Hell, it was a terrible nightmare. At the time it was a $600 or $700 a day play and it was never worth all the hassle.

Talk about being “feared”, having a few examples to show others that think of getting out of line will keep those pesky homeless in line.

I can't argue with that.

I do cringe when anyone gets a new players card for only $10 in free play thus making them ineligible for any future new players promotions that could be worth over 50x that.

Jaded= one of my favorite words.

I was thinking more along the lines of keeping the other hustlers from getting out of line and competing, thus pushing up the market value of the free play. I don't recall if it was DO that mentioned it, but
I seem to recall somome said it got to the point where the amount being offered for the free play(CPH) was fairly high. It seemed to me they were cutting the profit margin down to only a few bucks. That triggered me and I wasn't even involved.


I also seem to remember there being a bidding war for AOS's 5K in free play and perhaps some others as well. Next thing you know it's up to 90% of face.(I wonder what Munchkin paid for it?) AP's shouldn't be bidding up the price of this stuff. There may have been a few hundred profit to be had at that point. It would have been better just to make a deal with the other serious interested parties and got it for 50% and then split up the profits.
