Why would you pretend to be Canadian instead of British? They also use -ise for -ize. And they say aye all the time, as a result no one respects them--my knowledge of Canada comes from Southpark.

Gamblor and Paigow have similar possessive/plural apostrophe errors.

Now that you say that they both have the same abrasive argumentative attitude. I stopped trying to figure out who was multi accounting, I have been wrong a few times (Maybe) But a few were so obvious I was amazed that the mods will not do anything about it, unless their IP's match, any free VPN will solve that problem. And even that's not 100% fool proof someone could spoof your IP. (I think I'm not sure how all that works) I suggest getting a program that detects both the IP and the computer number or what ever its called. I don't think you can change that. So they would have to keep using different computers and a VPN. Just block all IPs from the Falls View aria and common free VPN addresses.

IMO 31 pages of complete nonsense , trolling, falsehoods, and bad info does nothing but drag down the value of the forum.


Well said.

I laughed at OP (original poster) when I read that mumbo jumbo, but laughed even harder when I noticed there are 30+ pages.

When I come onto the forum and see this thread among the Recent Threads list, I cringe. I've never blocked anything, but if the mods feel threads like this provide even the slightest bit of value to the forum (which they must since it's not been closed) then perhaps this is a good time to begin blocking.

I agree it provides no value, other than a little entertainment. But seriously, do you need to block it? Do you have some compulsion to read something that is probably garbage, just because it is visible? If it bothers you ignore it. I never even enter many of the forums. This one caught my eye as something I had to comment on.

Axel--I am similarly amazed. But I really don't think they need to go through that kind of trouble or even care that much about the issue. It's just when it's so friggin clear, and abuse is so flagrant...why does it continue? It's kind of funny, Gamblor gets banned. Then a semi-inactive poster, who has only posted in one thread, immediately comes here and defends him with similar writing mannerisms and similar ideas about math. And yes, they both definitely have that same abrasiveness. But they spelled centre different, so they must be different people. He's probably on thin ice at least.

Before the OP was emitted, Paigow posted ITT, and it was a good one:

I can't rule out that they're the same person, but those types of views are distressingly common on planet Earth. I think we're insulated here on this particular forum.

I very much doubt they're the same person. The writing styles and style errors seem too different, and this guy seems to have slightly more respect for math, even though he doesn't understand it.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

Different styles? They are almost identical, except for extremely obvious differences like 'centre'. As for respecting math, I'd say Gamblor intended to get nuked. Lotta coincidence otherwise.

Nope. The spelling that you have described in standard Canadian (British on "re" vs "er" and "our" vs "or" to end words, but American for "ize" vs "ise"

When I realized I had an uncanny, almost super hero ability to predict heads or tails, I transferred that to baccarat.


Another ridiculous thread started by a Baccarat player.

Who else?

This is what happens when you spend too much time at the Baccarat tables.

Win one more bet than they lose in a fifty-fifty game and suddenly they have supernatural powers.

I'm new here, I play Baccarat (my favorite game), and I haven't read this entire thread, but I've read enough to understand that in this forum most people don't believe in anything but science and mathematics when it comes to gaming, and that there seems to be little tolerance for people who believe otherwise. I'm here because I'm open minded, willing to listen and willing to learn, and I appreciate the suggestions and instruction I've received here so far (I have a lot to learn still about casino gambling), but ...

If the original poster (and to a degree I, and maybe others) believe in more metaphysical, supernatural, woo woo, ridiculous, or whatever you want to call it aspects of our choosen casino game, why does it irritate some of you so much?

I practice yoga and meditation, I have done so for a long time, and these are an ingrained part of my life, and it's with me when I play Baccarat too.

Why not? Why can't I believe in patterns when I play? Why can't I believe in some kind of precognitive feeling or trust my intuition when choosing my move? Why can't I draw on a piece of paper if I believe it enhances my game somehow? Why can't I apply spiritual teachings to Baccarat when it can be applied to almost every other aspect of life (to those who choose to)? Why should any of this bother those who don't believe in any of it, don't support it, don't appreciate it, don't understand it?

I used to play slots on occasion, I'm fairly new to frequent visits to the casino to play Baccarat now (3 Card Poker as well sometimes), it's exciting and I'm loving it! I'm here to learn, explore, meet new people, share, and play. Is that ok?

You guys are all very smart and fun. I love you guys. Don't be mean.
