I know for those who arent operating with an elevated level of intelligence, it is hard to grasp. Im not trying to sell anything here, Im just telling you my facts. The only way to resolve our differences is to experience it live. I will set up a meeting sometime in Vegas and lets just see who can win.


Thanks for insulting everyone on the board who doubts your ability to consistently win money at a negative expectation game.

Despite our somewhat acrimonious back-and-forth, I would still love to gamble with you live. However, I feel the need to stress that a few winning craps sessions in person will no more prove your ability to win at craps consistently than your 6 NBA picks prove you are a winning sports handicapper. Sample size, sample size, sample size!

First off...the bewshit spewing from your mouth is not the only tell that you are a major troll.

1. 8 consecutive 8's in a row has a P of 0.00000059621 or 1 in 1,677,260.
2. I don't know anyone...(anyone) who wouldn't take a free $100 if offered to them not to make a bet.
3. You are operating at the opposite of an elevated level of intelligence if you believe that that the odds on any given roll that a 7 appears is anything but 1/6.
4. As a person with a degree in Computer Engineering and having an "elevated level of intelligence" when it comes to the field of telecommunications, I will inform you that speaking to someone halfway across the world is possible through broadcast of ultra high frequency signals. There is nothing "mysterious" about it.
5. Quit making up numbers and stating them as fact. "80% of the time, this always happens"...Ok, where is your data?

Triplell, your opinions mean absolutely nothing to me. I'm am not a troll...all statements that I make on my gambling experiences are factual, NOTHING is ever made up!

1. 15 Consecutive 8's in a row happened...I was at the table. Don't believe me... I don't care! Didn't someone win the lottery 7 times? What are the odds on
that?

2. You don't know anyone who would not take a free $100 not to make a bet...... too bad!

3. 7's happen 1/6 rolls in a perfect world! We don't live in a perfect world!

4. Doesn't pertain to me.... I did not make the statement.

Bottom line, I love gambling and sports. I have been following this blog (Wizard of Vegas) for over 3 years



Really. Over 3 years. Its only been here since Oct 2009,
which is 2 1/2 years. The Wiz joined in Oct 2009, yet
you have been following the forum since before
March of 2009. Interesting. Is this as accurate as the rest
of what you have to say?

Yeah...I told all my friends that Duke and Missouri would get upset in the first round as well. Wonder what that parlay would have paid...

I didn't bet on it though. I mean...I KNEW it was going to happen. I just didn't bet, because..well, I didn't want to..OK! Gawd!

You watched pawn starts and guessed to the exact dollar amount. I mean, I often have a ball-park figure of what is going to be offered...but never to the exact dollar amount. I just must not be as perceptive as you are.

Sometimes, when I'm at the dice table, I'll just have this gut feeling that the next roll is going to be a 7. So I take down all my bets. I mean, the smart thing to do would be to lay every number for $1000 a piece...but I'd rather just take down my numbers.

Finally, I never said that seeing 8 eights in a row is impossible. I was just point out that if you view enough dice rolls, you're likely to see it.

My point, (and PopCan's) is that you are only remembering certain instances because the incident had a greater impact on you.

Last week, I went from catching a straight flush in UTH, to moving to the craps table where I tripled my money. I made about $5000, and it was a good hit. Incident's like this help you forget the time that you blew through $2000 in a night.

Seeing 8 eights is rare, seeing a seven is not. The girl walking up to the table didn't change the outcome of the dice...

EDIT: Just realized you said 15 consecutive 8's in a row...

That probability is 1 in 7,244,150,201,408 or about 38,000 times more rare then winning the powerball.

Sucks that you wasted your "lucky" event in your life on 15 8's, which is worth about $700 on a $30 bet. (That guy who had $15,000 though made about $250,000, which is almost like winning the lottery 38,000 times...

Triplell, Thanks for the respectful reply; I truly appreciate it. I hope I did not come of too snarly in my prior post.

I know people/dealers coming to a craps table can not affect dice but how do I explain losing EVERY single time a specific dealer (Rude, approximately 45 - 50 year old African American Female Dealer) at Trump Plaza comes to my craps table? She's been there for the past 10 years. I know it makes no sense to blame her but I go on such a bad losing streak whenever she comes to my table that I color up and leave immediately no matter how good my session is going. My gambling buddy says the same thing about that specific dealer. She is so negative that she always destroys the vibe and he refuses to play at any table that she is dealing.

Regarding the title post (Luck or Skill) I truly believe that I have bad luck in some casinos; once I confirm this after numerous visits, I do not go back and play at the same Casino. If you ever see me throwing dice in AC....do the exact opposite of whatever I'm doing, most likely you'll leave there rich!

You're just an overzealous, superstitious gambler. There is nothing "weird" about you, you're like half the people who play craps.

You hedge you're don't pass bet with a place bet. Are you sure the dealer wasn't calling you an idiot because you were making two completely opposite bets that resolve simultaneously?

Trust me, I can think of many instances where I rolled all night betting minimally. As soon as I raise my bet, it seems that my luck turns.

However, I'm smart enough to know that nothing I do with my bet effects the outcome of the dice. It's all merely coincidental bad luck. Craps players are the most superstitious players because most craps players wager most their money on the Do side. You will see more 7-outs then you will see points being made. It's fact.

Yo Crapsforever.. I know the biatch you are talking about. I had it out with her last fall at the Plaza.. That is funny. Im surprised she hasnt been fired yet due to complaints. I have played more craps than most people I know. I have never had a problem with any dealer in 20 years... well may be one other... but that chick was just an agry woman.

I was winning.. in and out as I do. She came over to deal in my area. I told her 'off' when she switched over. She didn't hear me the first time. I said it again and again. Finally, right before the shooter rolled the dice, I yelled out, 'what the fuck are you doing over there woman, im OFF! O M G, she looked like she was going to kill me. She gave me some words back and I told her she needed to get happy with her life because she was just an angry woman... to tell you the truth, If I looked like that, I would be agry every day too! lol BTW, yes, the next roll was a 7... but i was off!

I like it at plaza because there is never anyone there... i like emty tables to do my thang.
