That's exactly why I don't think you qualify to have a LEGITIMATE opinion.



But YOUR opinion changes nothing, has no
effect on me or on anything. It's just
another blast of hot air in cyberspace.

Whoosh...

Rather than listen to their tattered tiresome cover stories (except for Zippy above - I know he's legit 'bout what he says of what he did, and also not responsible in any way for anything I'm about to say that may tend to be a bit unpopular) I prefer to go with what I actually see the self proclaimed "pro" something or others do in reality, in their actual lives, and get deaf to the latest chosen explanation of the fantasy one. Really not hard to do around Las Vegas, in fact hard NOT to do some of that after a while even if you really don't care & you'd truly rather not know. It is a sizable city that suddenly shrinks to become a pretty small gossipy little town with everybody chattering on everybody's stuff after you slice it up by niche interest groups. The most common real Advantage Player plays (actual source of income for the mundane stuff of daily life) I see among those who are around long enough to tally:

    #3. Jackpot legal judgment, insurance settlement, inheritance, sold Grandma's house when she finally kicked the bucket...

    #2. Welfare scam, Workers' Comp or VA or Social Security "disability" (*ahem*cough*cough*) check, Section 8 housing, riding their 99 weeks of unemployment comp, etc...

    #1. Found an unattractive and lonely but employable woman to attach himself to, and lives off her.

In other words, not much changed, pretty much the same list from the permanent "students" and "political activists" or "revolutionaries" from the 60's into the 70's, and then the "alternative healers" and "spiritual gurus" ten years after those fizzled out, then the little wavelet of "artists" who were always oddly lacking any sign of any art ten years after that...

The good old, it's just cyberspace defense. Is this a new found enlightenment? I seem to remember you had to leave the forum over some particular opinions.

Possibly not you that it has an effect on, But I'm such a humanitarian that if I can save just one person from being sucked in to fictitious beliefs that there's a super special secret betting system, I feel I have helped save someone from self delusion and gamblers fallacy.

Yes, it's not for some people. But why do you have that opinion? You obviously enjoy gambling.

Some people dream of going to Paris, I wouldn't go if I had a free all expense paid trip there.

Seriously? Well, I'm glad there's someone left; I take it you're not a big watcher of late night cable or reader of tawdry ads on billboards. Good for you.

I hate to do it, but here's a relatively smallish appetizer:

Well, now that you mention it, I do know a couple of guys who luckboxed into really big poker jackpots, both from being the "loser" in a "bad-beat jackpot" hand that paid them a ridiculous sum from the site or casino chain's promo fund, one of them online in the heyday of online poker, and the other one from a very small stakes live game that I think he just sat at to enjoy the free cocktail service. One of them is still around calling himself a poker pro, and I seriously doubt he's ever even had a winning month other than stumbling into that one random jackpot. He has a "poker-pro" website that he's always trying to pimp. Which I will not help anyone find.

But no, I meant suing to get big bucks because you've allegedly been "hurt" or "wronged." Apologies for my lack of clarity.
