You've said everything I'm thinking. I've seen employees move too and I've seen them at other properties as players, which might as well be the same thing in some situations.

The number of properties is important too. Couldn't tell ya all that, you'd have to check in with him! Right now I'm just a small fish since I decided to make a leap and pay off some past debt out of my bankroll. If I was worth more maybe I'd have taken that offer already.

Regardless, I'm sure it'll be a good time filled with many laughs and stories!

Not going if there gon' be darksiders and hwatnots attending.

Regardless, I think it'd be smart to have discussions about locations and times to be kept confidential / only in PMs. Don't wanna go posting stuff publicly where bad guys will know where the group's at.

I voted may 18-19 because it was the same weekend last year, but I'd prefer to avoid EDC as well so would prefer May 11-12 also.

SooPoo, you need to show up. Gialmere and Minty, you'd be welcome, as would several new members I've noticed. I'd also like to see Glen and FCBLcommish mrsuit31 and other industry people made welcome this time.

We talked about an escape room some time ago. I don't think that got done, but maybe some did? Either way, I'd really like to do one this time with you guys if people are interested.

Can we maybe go to Mob Pizza? I've heard it's really good but I haven't been there.



Not for spring fling but we did an escape room in October with Mike and some others. I had a blast even though we failed miserably.

That would be a good side activity idea. I've done escape rooms twice now and still haven't survived. I feel like a fool and want a third shot.

Where I live, many married couples will pilgrimage to Vegas on their 10th anniversary to renew their wedding vows, perhaps with "Elvis" overseeing the ceremony. Once this ritual expression of their profound and undying love is complete, they and their guests commemorate the event with excessive drinking and gambling.

God bless America.

What, they didnt get those in the robbery as well? That's very unlucky for them.

No thanks, I have my own Freddy Krueger mask somewhere. However, I know some one that might need to borrow your high heels and one of your dresses.

A little while back I had a thread about reactions to being barred or backed off. He made me an offer about giving me tips to avoid detection and generally be a better AP as long as I didn't play any of his properties.

For what it's worth, he seems really trustworthy and I know he offered advice on an AP comp maneuver for anyone who would PM him. I COMPLETELY understand your concern though.

I'm personally trying to weigh out the risk of meeting darksiders vs gaining a few allies, learning new plays and potentially setting up the workings of teams with people there.



So apparently he has no moral problem with AP. Just monetarily he doesn't want it in his casino. Horrible!

I mean if someone asked for advice on murder I would not PM him a how-to with the caveat make sure not to murder anyone in my family.

I have a better idea.

If any darksiders show up to the fling...

We tap them on the shoulder, surround him, and tell him he is being ejected from the party and must exit the property immediately.

Use LinkedIn to checkout casino executives. They move between casinos as a career path.

LinkedIn Tip #1: To see resumes without paying annual fees, connect to ten super-connected people, and you can see ~90% of active profiles (more than 5-10 connections, people who actually use LinkedIn). LinkedIn Open Connectors will accept invitations from anyone.

https://www.businessinsider.com/steven-burda-has-most-linkedin-connections-2013-7

LinkedIn Tip #2: When looking at casino executives, set your viewing to "private" (or use a non-casino player's account to look). Warning: if you set to "public" in the future, those "private" views will become "public".

I don't understand. You want to tell the whole world online that you are an advantage player but you have a problem meeting people in person because they now know you are an advantage player because you told them online that you are an advantage player? I do not understand the logic?

There's a difference between someone knowing your online handle and perhaps nothing more and them knowing what you look like, what you wear, your name and other personal details. Knowing a bit is fine, knowing too much is fatal. Trust is everything, and one breach can be devastating.

Aren't you opening the door by going online and telling everyone you are an advantage player? I would think that is the starting point to get in more trouble than a person would want. Especially someone trying to avoid detection. It just seems like some sort of conflict of interest. It seems that many advantage players meet up in person which opens the door even more to be outed in some form or another. These days people take your picture with their cell phone and you don't even know it is being taken. I guess everyone on here knows better but it just seems like it would cause more harm than good.

I agree in sentiment.

However at these spring flings none of the APs are exposing their team plays. Its more like a friendly chat amongst like souls and some shared pizza

I would love to attend, but if anyone is uncomfortable with my presence, I certainly understand. There are a few on the board who I have met personally, and many others who I have had PM conversations with. I would hope at lease some of them would vouch for me. I am in a semi-unique position, I work in upper management for a Las Vegas area property, and I am also an AP. Wizard knows my identity. I am not even sure if it would be worse for me professionally to be there than for any of you. Most of you are not in my jurisdiction.

I am fine with whatever the group decides. If there is even 1 person that would not attend if I were there, then I will stay clear.

I had this same debate last year, except it was all done by PM with Wizard and I kept my identity out of everything. Look back at that thread, specifically Wizard's posts, and you should be able to figure out the interaction.

Hmm I didn't think about my statement too much, whoops. It could be vague and include things that only darksiders would know too. I personally don't think another book would be that damaging though. Between Snyder, Wong, Schlesinger, Griffin, Grosjean, Mezrich, Zender and many others it's not like it would be a game changer.

More of a memoir than a how to was what I had in mind, anyway.

For what it's worth, I think you should write a book as well! Your backstory is unlike many and has an inspirational twist to it.

That's disappointing to hear FCBL, and I don't even know if I'll be there.

He can go. I know alot of people that wouldn't if he did. He has stated in the past that he would not tolerate AP's in his house. Well, obviously no AP is going to want him to see them, so they could be pointed out and scrutinized in his house. I would lay odds that he works for a chain. Banned from one banned from all.
Noone is saying he can't go. I know if he does I'm out as well as many others. I'm probably out anyhow so don't let me ruin the party.

Not sure if I passed this info on to you, but Iím getting married late April at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana. In May I have two political trips (DC and Albany) as well as an Anesthesia Conference (Austin) and a trip to your neck of the woods (Gainesville) for ďSon of SOOPOOís PhD graduation. So Iím a tad busy around that time! It is possible I might be able to do the Friday throughSunday visit but thatís a lot of flying for a day and a half.

Not sure if I passed this info on to you, but Iím getting married late April at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana. In May I have two political trips (DC and Albany) as well as an Anesthesia Conference (Austin) and a trip to your neck of the woods (Gainesville) for ďSon of SOOPOOís PhD graduation. So Iím a tad busy around that time! It is possible I might be able to do the Friday throughSunday visit but thatís a lot of flying for a day and a half.



What are you doing, having a life? Geez.

Congrats in advance to you and her, and huge congrats to Dr. Entomologist!

And where will lowly civilians who simply gamble and succumb to the house edge convene?



You guys meet in the casino and lose all your ploppy money :)

I guess you can meet at either McDonald's or Burger King. Or maybe you have to go to Wendys

I would love to attend, but if anyone is uncomfortable with my presence, I certainly understand. There are a few on the board who I have met personally, and many others who I have had PM conversations with. I would hope at lease some of them would vouch for me. I am in a semi-unique position, I work in upper management for a Las Vegas area property, and I am also an AP. Wizard knows my identity. I am not even sure if it would be worse for me professionally to be there than for any of you. Most of you are not in my jurisdiction.

I am fine with whatever the group decides. If there is even 1 person that would not attend if I were there, then I will stay clear.

I had this same debate last year, except it was all done by PM with Wizard and I kept my identity out of everything. Look back at that thread, specifically Wizard's posts, and you should be able to figure out the interaction.



I would be happy to vouch for you, and would enjoy seeing you at an event.

Well, if anyone is in town and wants to meet me, PM and let me know. I would like to meet DarkOz for sure.

I don't think meeting Darkoz is a good idea. He needs to go under the radar.

My photo has been distributed most everywhere on the east coast and that doesn't stop me. I walk right thru and operate anyway

So I dont mind a meeting

I have other employees and my masks as well. Nothing stops me from operations

He can go. I know alot of people that wouldn't if he did. He has stated in the past that he would not tolerate AP's in his house. Well, obviously no AP is going to want him to see them, so they could be pointed out and scrutinized in his house. I would lay odds that he works for a chain. Banned from one banned from all.
Noone is saying he can't go. I know if he does I'm out as well as many others. I'm probably out anyhow so don't let me ruin the party.




No worries, I am OUT. Thanks.

He can wear a mask if he likes.

I think he is safe as there is almost no intersection in our fields: I am not in the same area of the country as he is, and I am also not in a department that intersects with his area of operations.

Right now I am dealing with a deteriorating hip, and it is quite possible that I could go under the knife for that before spring arrives....

OK, so that slice & dice is now scheduled for April 9, to be followed by 2-3 weeks of physical therapy. Keeping in mind that I already admitted to being a cheapskate and that someone posted the claim that 5/11-12 looked like the cheapest of the weekends in the poll, I have now cast my vote for that option. Now (since the votes to date don't reveal much of a consensus) I will appreciate someone making a decision so I can make reservations without paying premium prices.
