Awww, I miss the President. That was the first time I played Pai Gow. My wife and I played $5 Pai Gow for 8 hours and each lost $20. "You're going to have some fun! President Casino... Yeah!" (The old commercials)



There are very few casinos that I've been to that made me want to leave faster than the President. It was a dump of a casino who's only redeeming benefit was Spanish 21 (the only one in the St Louis area) and the poker room with windows. Otherwise, I say good riddance!

As to the OP, 8 hands is nothing. It sucks, yes, but that seems to be my luck on BJ lately. I've been running really bad myself, so I feel you on that one.

I am livid. Did I get scammed? I played at Gun Lake Casino in Western Michigan.

I started with $100 dollars. Doubled twice, once with a ten against a 4 and another time with a 9 against a 3. Lost 8 in a row for $100. It took about 9 minutes.



I'm an experienced card counter who plays only the best games. I've lost more than 8 hands in a row many times and will again probably sooner than later. I never give it a second thought. I doubt that you're being scammed. Nine minutes of play tells us nothing.

Did you bring only $100 to play $10 a hand? That would be telling. If the answer is yes, then you should get a larger bankroll or bet less per hand.

Last month I bought in for $400 at a $25 table, and was at $75 before I won a hand.

45 minutes later I was back to even, and I cashed out. I never thought that it was possible that I was getting cheated.

No scam,just bad cards. Did you leavre after losing $100? i often cash in for half of what I intend to play. In yopur case that's $50. If you lose it, go to another game. Losing fast sucks, but you could have won fast just as easily. Good luck !!!

I have had players win 10 hands in a row.... Either can happen. It is annoying but in a true BJ game anything is possible.

Yeah, I had a dealer mention to those at the table something about my being a blackjack magnet when I had three blackjacks in the first four hands. It turned out to be a losing session though. That Lady Variance sure is fickle.

I always chuckle to myself when people who might not play too often find it hard to believe that they've lost, "5 hands in a row!?", or the like.

I've lost 17 hands in a row (between 2 different tables) and 22 consecutive "'bets". The 17 between the 2 Blackjack tables, and then 5 DP Craps losers. You have to love gambling sometimes :)

That's nothing. I've lost 14 hands in a row. Won 1 hand and lost the next 7 for a cumulative $200 loss. It happens.
