It's a parody of Shakespeare. Hamlet's soliloquy. You can't avoid seeing it because it's the most famous one from him. Guys do it all the time.

To be.

Or not to be.

That is the question.

Whether it is nobler to suffer the slings and arrows...etc.

This is what the actual speech means, because Old English is hard to understand.

TL:DR - he's talking to himself out loud, deciding whether to kill himself to get away from all his troubles.

To live, or to die? That is the question.

Is it nobler to suffer through all the terrible things

fate throws at you, or to fight off your troubles,

and, in doing so, end them completely?

To die, to sleep—because that’s all dying is—

and by a sleep I mean an end to all the heartache

and the thousand injuries that we are vulnerable to—

that’s an end to be wished for!

To die, to sleep. To sleep, perhaps to dream—yes,

but there’s there’s the catch. Because the kinds of

dreams that might come in that sleep of death—

after you have left behind your mortal body—

are something to make you anxious.

That’s the consideration that makes us suffer

the calamities of life for so long.

Because who would bear all the trials and tribulations of time—

the oppression of the powerful, the insults from arrogant men,

the pangs of unrequited love, the slowness of justice,

the disrespect of people in office,

and the general abuse of good people by bad—

when you could just settle all your debts

using nothing more than an unsheathed dagger?

Who would bear his burdens, and grunt

and sweat through a tiring life, if they weren’t frightened

of what might happen after death—

that undiscovered country from which no visitor returns,

which we wonder about and which makes us

prefer the troubles we know rather than fly off

to face the ones we don’t? Thus, the fear of

death makes us all cowards, and our natural

willingness to act is made weak by too much thinking.

Actions of great urgency and importance

get thrown off course because of this sort of thinking,

and they cease to be actions at all.

But wait, here is the beautiful Ophelia!

[To OPHELIA] Beauty, may you forgive all my sins in your prayers.

If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Are we going to get to hear the story of how this play ceased to be? Did the system change? Did you get nailed?

Yes, I will.

I had already stopped using it on my own. I never got nailed for doing it.

I did get nailed (evicted) for something else at that casino. That didnt stop me from hitting them. I had my mask and I eventually had teams to go in for me.

Lot of good stuff here. The magic analogy is great. If someone get help to learn a trick, they should stay quiet. If they come up with a trick on their own, they are free to blab about it. That goes deeper than just etiquette and starts getting closer into confidential and privileged information. Maybe not in the legal sense, but definitely what the community has decided. From what it seems, DO came up with this independently, so he is not burning anyone who helped him come up with it. But there could very well be people who also found similar things on their own, so they could be left worse off be him reporting on it.

There are some other issues where he is misguided. I'll take that to a private message, as it is stuff that he is exposing that may still be available to others.

I dont mind you suggesting things but what you just stated is absolutely not true

It was a learning process where me and a gambling friend tried new things.

All in all we self-taught ourselves over a period of 14 months.

The hustlers in that casino were so green they had no clue what we were doing.

At one point they actually tried to mimic our movements and didn't even understand we were betting opposite and ended losing a ton of cash.

You can make a lot of claims but considering I didnt even meet you for the first time until 2018, its hard for me to believe you would even make such a false statement

Are you saying you never said something along those lines way back when in some copasatay? If Not, I retract that statement and apologize, and I will leave it at that.

It doesn't matter either way, how, what ,when why. If your out there making money via AP I commend you. I have no doubt your doing well. I think your a good guy. I just wish you would realize the negative affect TMI has on this stuff.
