My best blackjack story...Got to the Rio first night of a Vegas trip and made a $50 bet on a pre-season game.checked in and watched the losing first half up in the room.Figured F it and went downstairs to watch the rest and just get some dinner.

Passed by a nearly empty $25 table and figured WTF play a couple hands and get my $50 back from the losing bet.I buy in $100..The cards just were all golden.18,19,20's bj's..can't recall how many but was pressing a bit too light in foresight,as I was shocked..eventually a hand came where I had to make a decision and it was 7 7.I hit and get a 7 !

Eventually it got choppy and I lost 3 in a row and cashed out around $800.Tipped the dealer and she commented on the nice run.By then the game was over and my bet was of course a winner...Nice first night in Las Vegas!

Can only recall a couple tables where everyone was winning once at the Palms in it's heyday and a couple guys cancelled dinner reservations twice to keep the vibe at the table strong and it worked out great..they changed dealers on us and it didn't matter..

Got comped there for a few nights out of the blue mailer.Super nice room but the whole place is a nightmare to navigate from your room to the casino.Elevators to this or that level and eventually I had to memorize the artwork on the corridors to make sure I was going in the right direction.

Just getting there day one from the parking garage and a guy leaving comes out of the elevator all flustered as it took him awhile to GTFO and warned us it's crazy..

I'm pretty sure if I was blindfolded at the Rio/Gold Coast I could make it from room to the sportsbook with less problems.

There's a simple knot out there to tie two strings together,speaking of fishing line....match up the loose ends parallel to each other and start wrapping one end around another while keeping a gap at the beginning of the wrap.The other side do the same,then put the loose ends into the gap and tighten...Knot is supposedly stronger than the line itself...cut off the loose ends and done..done this many times when fishing..

Hey Ad,Sounds like you had a fun year man.Sportsbetting aside though.Keeper of a girlfriend IMO

.Check out SW FL if you do move..card rooms in Tampa and Ft Myers.Seminole Hard Rock...No state income tax,place is booming yet not crazy like the East coast..occasional hurricane but WTF we deal with it and plenty of warning to prepare..Moved here 25+ years ago and thought about AZ or NV but give me 75 degrees in February I'm all set.

Would like to root you on in the contest and willing to chip in a small percent as a silent partner if needed..I need some more action than just the Fantasy and the Bitcoins to Heritage Sports is such a PIA I gave up..

Best Wishes man glad things are cool with Ya,you have your head screwed on straight..

Hi Ad where ya been? You know I say go for it for any excuse for a Vegas trip..

This is much like high stakes Fantasy Football around since '02..Very top heavy and winning your league of 12 just nets you a few thousand but gets you to playoff race where the big $$ is.I always considered it week by week gambling $..

If the $ is tight maybe do sell a share of your entry just like the wsop,but you alone decide the picks..

If you do it check out the Huddle.com for another capping angle/ player projections,injuries etc most good info posted by Thursday with a Friday injury update.. GL man

Freaking GO FOR IT !!

How about an old-fashioned US treasury bond that matures later on when she can cash it in or a roll of new shiny silver dollars...and a little doll she will appreciate at 3 years old

Please check the local papers obits.

No posts from him I see recently.Hope he's ok.

Thought for sure he'd post about the new gambling decision.

I think someone here has personal contact?

What is your best guess to what happens in this scenario.

I place a bet on Green Bay home against the Bears say -6 $110 to make a $100 opening day of the NFL

I know what will happen in Vegas but what will happen at the Borgata/Monmouth Park Will Hill sportsbooks in NJ?

Will the -110 stand and be taxed on the payout?

I really hope NJ does not F this up as this is a golden egg for AC.

I used to think he was a decent guy,telling today's youth to go out and get a job and pull your pants up etc and look presentable..

Hope for your sake he does not get a 5 year gig in a 'country club' prison where he runs the library or some nonsense like that.Can the victims make statements to the judge prior to sentencing?

In any case send him a package with some Vaseline and a shoehorn or something to make him think WTF is this tool for?? haha.still wipe the prints and a fake return address and disguise at the P.O.Keep your name out of this esp.if someone tries to hurt/kill him while he is still out.

That $ is outrageous..I'm kinda versed in how to be a PIA to the cable co (Comcast)..Ya gotta call,threaten to cancel,ya gotta better deal from a dish provider etc..Takes all day sometimes but they will/should knock something off that bill.I have the same as you but with no paid HBO Sho but get Starz I don't even want and it's around $150 and I'm kinda stuck there without buying my own modem and setting that up to save $10 a month or so.. Last time I called them to lower the bill I got some douche on the line and dropped a f bomb and he hung up on me..tried again and got somebody to listen and said I want X AND X removed and that was that.I was supposed to replace a box at the store and never did and still have the NFL channel and now starz which sucks but the bill came down..I think with one keystroke on her computer she took care of me.. Get on the phone GG! who the hell needs the NFL channel except for like some of the college ball games. I think they play the shriner bowl and the senior bowl as well as combine coverage and draft coverage. Other than that its pretty average and I get the same kind of coverage of games else where. I would rather watch local teams or go to a bar and watch for free.

Its packaged with the RedZone and I need that every Sunday.
