It's like an ant you stepped on as a child, just enough to allow the ant to still stir not enough to smash kill it entirely.

But what does this loathsome barely there insect-like activity amount to?

1) Posts (not so much threads) by old-time members stating that there is no way to beat the casino short of BJ card counting or schemes to drain casino player cards of free play and promotions, low level schemes they call "AP."

2) Posts (and occasional threads) on how new members must be former banned members.

3) Did I mention (1) already? Well then, two only so far....

3) RANTS

4) Off-topic threads such as about how to lose weight or what did you eat today that have nothing to do with gambling.

That covers about 90% of the content here these days.

Occasionally you get a real world review of a casino or casino gambling trip, but if any review or story claims any sort of win, the "four legs good, two legs bad" crowd steps in quickly with (1), which is again, that there is no way to beat the casino short of BJ card counting or schemes to drain casino player cards of free play and promotions, low level schemes they call "AP."

I used to rescue ants that had fallen into the swimming pool. Perhaps you should look for something more interesting to read if you're bored.

By the way, I'm quite sure there are several members here who actually walk the walk, they just keep their mouths shut. Do you expect them to broadcast their secrets, for free?

Wake me up when you post something more interesting.

Not saying I believe it, but the numbers aren't as daunting as you might think. $1B handle is 333 5 hour sessions at 60 hands/hour and $10k/hand.

I also wish there was more gambling related content. The forum sometimes doesn't have interesting content

I am not sure what your definition of "low-level AP" is. What works works.

If AP moves must net millions to be big-level well see what happens with that. Most likely the casino will take you to civil court ala Phil Ivey

Big AP move.

But if he is forced to give it back or denied his winnings better to stick with the "low-level AP"

Now if you think high-level AP is complicated Oceans 11 stuff (but legal) something the average AP couldn't think of I remember coming up with this really complicated motion picture process for the labs back in my Hollywood days.

I thought I was hot crap about to change the wheel

The lab techs said my new process would work. And it would save customers money. But it was too damn complicated and confusing to operate.

Sometimes simple "low-level" is preferred. Keeping it simple means keeping it successful in many instances

Not dead. 150+ members log on daily. Probably hundreds more lurk. Plenty of new posts and threads on a daily basis. They just no longer are about gambling and how to improve players chances or Las Vegas as it once was. The forum is now sort of a clubhouse, for a group of Wizard's friends, the "in clique" to make fun or each other and make elementary school "pee pee" and sexual comments. The most excitement here involves baiting people to say things that can get then suspended and then bringing it to the moderators attention and then cheering when the member is suspended. Odd, immature kind of stuff.

Michael Shackleford is respected and highly thought of in gaming and non-gaming circles. He is one of the go-to people the media calls on for a gambling story. So it seems odd that he has allowed the forum to go this route. After all, it is his name still associated with the forum, not the casino bonus group that owns it.

You should go back to the thread on how to lose weight, or what you ate today. As I said before, the fact that you don't believe it tells me that you've never played much in your life, because a handle over a B isn't even such a big thing.

And if I wanted to make up a story I think I could come up with a better one than "I used to play average 3000 a hand stopped for about a decade now play about 300 a hand."

I thought this was some massive reverse martingale you hit on.

Start out with 3000 a hand and in a decade work your way down to 300 a hand
