The interview is mainly biographical. It mostly deals with a few dead smaller advantage plays, his time being homeless and his experience with casinos before becoming an advantage player. We also have a long discussion on each of our positions as relates secrecy of plays.

Yeah, and if any other APs would be interested, I wouldnít mind conducting other biographical-type interviews. Personally, Iím really interested in the stories people have in that regard, Iím obviously already aware of most AP plays that have been mentioned or hinted at and how they work.

No offense...but I grew bored 50 or so words into it. It's a biographical of a former homeless guy who apparently elevated himself out of it...but no story, detail or otherwise how or why other than "AP."

I can be intrigued by a story....but not one where there is no story. I read the first page and the last. In between it was blank pages.

Are you sure you werenít just hoping for the play to be detailed further? We do talk about a smaller play he did at Sands as well as a few unrelated AP concepts.

No offense taken. Iím more interested in knowing about the people than I am the plays, but not everyone is going to share that opinion.

This is sadly predictable, since the ban of non gaming related topics, I knew that eventually even more drama would come from APs.

I scrolled through this thread and now it sounds like mod approval is even needed to post AP potentials (which can encompass any kind of promo if you want to be techical)?....

Some of the more exciting posts that lead to intense discussion and debate are AP and potential opportunities, but since AP players are very protective this discussion is also getting quashed.

Sadly none of this is shocking. (I warned in the political ban thread that AP discussion bans would be next)....
Soon people will complain about casual comments on deck penetration at various casinos.....

I honestly don't mind career APs keeping their best plays close. But, threatening a boycott to the point where now any AP-related post requires mod approval, well, that just seems silly....

Yeah, even if I hadnít already planned to redact that stuff, (which I did) I really donít want to catch a ban for writing an article since itís, you know, my job.

Are you kidding me? He was wearing
a fricking mask when you met him
for lunch? That's as far as I'm reading,
Anybody who does that, I want every
word out of their mouth verified, and
that's not possible. So I just assume
most of it is made up. Good grief, a
mask.. LOL

I just thought it was a silly joke or he was avoiding detection in the meetup casino. Either way, donít see the harm.
