I'd happy to announce that I'm going to shoot a video on pai gow tiles on Oct 12. As long as I'm getting the crew together, I thought I would do another video where Angela asks me questions submitted by YOU. Here is an example of one we did at Ahigh's house:



You may submit your questions here or by PM. I also welcome questions that are not gambling related. Try to channel your inner Barbara Walters and ask me the tough questions everyone is afraid to ask but wants to know the answer to.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If I was able to figure out a hole in the code of a certain VP machine, which exploit will make me the most money?:

A) Hit a big casino hard with a few max bets, then leave for a few weeks before hitting another big casino. Keep going until they fix the hole or back you off.

B) Intersperse medium sized winning bets with small losers all over town and milk the cows for hopefully a longer period of time.

C) Form a team and do (A).

D) Form a team and do (B).

E) Contact the manufacturer and offer it to them for a finders fee + a residual.

F.) Other?

Ah, yes, I get asked this one all the time ;-).

What effect do you think the Las Vegas Raiders and Golden Knights will have on the sports books in Vegas - especially if the city gets a Super Bowl?

(What were you expecting me to ask..."when will RTC get a bus line to The M"?)


Meanwhile, can I take a crack at this one:

It seems to me (C) is your best shot, especially if your team hits hard, fast, and simultaneously. Once one casino notices the problem, I seriously doubt the game manufacturer won't warn the others. (B) and (D) run the risk of the flaw being detected by someone else before you can make any worthwhile gains out of it.

The vp bug with the double up feature was being hit for good money at different casinos for months. It was only greed at banging out multiple jackpots simultaneously that ruined it

The e-craps bug was hit hard and fast for $100 k in a day at resorts world May 2013. It was discovered the very next day

Both cases all casinos were notified and then problem fixed.

So not sure. Probably could make more keeping it low

Although disturbing to some, there apparently is a price for a human life. This amount can vary from industry to industry. For example, NASA places a very high price on a human life, and will spend millions on safety systems, or scrubbed rocket launches to protect a single human life. On the other hand, tobacco or toxic waste companies are willing to stretch out litigation hoping folks die to save them money settling lawsuits. The price of a dead litigant vs. a badly injured one can be measured, and life or death decisions are made based on costs or savings.

So... Dollar wise, which of these three countries average citizen's lives are the most valuable to the United States?

North Korea - We spend millions on humanitarian aid. We also spend billions on military support of the South Koreans rather than taking military action to eliminate the running costs.

Iran - Americans and other westerners died at the hands of groups supported by the Iranian theocracy, but we did not take military action to avoid civilian casualties. We spent millions to evacuate civilians when the Shah fell. We give them millions to not develop nuclear weapons. Their oil is still valuable to the global economy.

Mexico - There are millions of citizens of Mexico in the United States "illegally", but they are actively not pursued by many local governments. We force illegal immigrants to risk death crossing the desert or employing "Coyotes" to bring them across, and spend billions employing a small army to police the border rather than provide safe passage or employ a system of visas and immigration that meets our economic needs. The cheap labor is valuable to us though.

What multiple of your player bet do you need to have bet against you while banking (every other hand) to break even in

1. PG tiles?

2. PG poker?

Assuming you play optimally and the house and other players use house way. Standard rules, 5% commission, no rounded commission and no pre-paying commission.

Contact RS and say you'll sell the information for $100 and won't tell anyone else. This will maximize my value.

In Blackjack, I had never heard of surrender until reading your sites. Is inquiring about this rule in a casino going to tip my hat as a player in the know, and is the potential increase in return worth the risk? Thank you!

My question is: It has been many years, are you now willing to share publicly your experience working for Sands?
