      Sadly, "skilled slot players" won't be practicing free throws anytime soon. They know a winning game when they see one.

      I dont know muffy. Maybe all those years of shooting hoops in the park will finally pay off. $10K is about what I got for college. If there put in the stipulation that you have to shoot both right and left handed...I'm their. You got an extra room Norm?

      Beer Pong is the Friday and Saturday night thing here.

      I wonder if there will be any pro players participating or any college hoops stars? They should offer billiards gambling like 8-ball or Nine-ball tournaments, that's a skill game. Some casinos have had Wii bowling tournaments if they want to get physical.

      I've been around a free throw contests. There are 10 year old kids that can shoot the lights out - like 97 out of 100. I was about a 90%er but I could shoot with either hand.

      Maybe we can put together a BJTF Rollerball team.

      I can add some Beer Pong champs. That's an art in itself. But one kid wins every week.

      Yep, probably some of us ol' rockers date back to the James Caan Rollerball days v. the newer remake. I would NOT give odds on our chances. Hell, we could bet against ourselves for positive EV and not even THROW the game intentionally. Too much "better living through chemistry" over the years, I'm sure.

BJTF is an advantage player site based on the principles of comity. That is, civil and considerate behavior for the mutual benefit of all involved. The goal of advantage play is the legal extraction of funds from gaming establishments by gaining a mathematic advantage and developing the skills required to use that advantage. To maximize our success, it is important to understand that we are all on the same side. Personal conflicts simply get in the way of our goals.
