MDawg stories require one to devoid themself of known facts, in my opinion. Just roll with it.

Hey Max, I can use a couple hundred extra dollars. Any chance you think this guy is for real like the last one?

*** Wizard, when you update the forum you could please add an IGNORE function? I just need to ignore 3 - 4 here, the rest are cool.

I might not believe your billions of dollars in action claim, however, by the end of this thread, if you told me you had to ignore billions of members, I might very well believe that.

This one is not even close. You could offer +10,000 and I wouldn't want the action.

My first cross-country coach could be co-author. He explained very seriously that, "You have to be ahead at the finish line to win."

Words to live by.



He never watched the Kentucky Derby.

That was good.

With your permission, SooPoo, I'll use that and reference you. I really should have remembered that. I did a blog piece on the Kentucky Derby, and if I ever get to 20 posts without being banned by Babs, I'll post a link.

MDawg could easily be real. Dracula's churn was phenomenal.

I don't think I've ever had a session where the theoretical loss equaled my actual win/loss.

Damn true! Of all the dice throws in a lifetime, I never rolled a 3.5 either.

To the question on when to stop: Always keep playing on any game that is hot. But make sure to stop whenever it is due for a loss.

Sorry, anybody using concepts like « hot » or « due for a loss » has nothing useful to contribute to the subject.
Maybe a forum category for Magic could be the receptacle of such posts?

Redietz ... of course use my retort as you want.
Others.... either you believe MDawg was/now still is a big gambler playing thousands a hand or you donít. I donít know but Iíll guess there are at least thousands and more likely tens of thousands of Ďwhalesí that have put through a billion in play over any given decade. It would not be stunning if one of them found this forum. I tend not to believe him because his understanding of basic EV concepts seems lacking. But it is possible many whales donít have that knowledge. So my jury is still out.
