    Zee, here are some non blackjack related questions about your trip.

    It appears you rented a car. Did you rent at the airport or some other place? How much did your total car rental come to including gas? Did you take the train from the airport?

    How long did it take to get from the airport to Black Hawk?

    Did you do any sight seeing or was your stay limited to the Black Hawk-Central City area?

    What was the traffic in Denver like and on the way to Black Hawk?

    You said you played rated so let us know if you get any room comps in the mail.

    I rented a car at the airport. On a previous visit, I had taken a train downtown and rented from there but this time, I was surprised to find a cheap deal via Priceline. For a 5 day rental, I ended up paying $148.70 (including taxes and such). I landed early in the A.M., picked up the car arfound 8:00 a.m. It took me about 50 minutes to get to Idaho Springs (Cheapest safe motel, around 15 mkiles from Blackhawk but because the drive was so spectacular, I did not mind). Its just one exit off I-70 past the Blackhawk exit. The only sight seeing I did was to go up towards MT. Evans (about 20 miles away) but the road was closed near Echo Lake. I had been sightseeing to Colorado many many times before so it was not a priority. The drive back to the airport was tougher because I had a 9:00 a.m. flight and so I left hotel about 5:00 a.m. but due to construction and early morning traffic into Denver, took maybe 75 minutes.

    I saw an AP playing rated and blatantly spreading and I was also hoping for a hotel comp. I actually started anonymously, but that first day was horrible and I was down (ended up losing $1800) so I asked the pit for a dinner comp and he got me a players card. Later, cause of my losing, a host came by. Unfortunately, they had a VIP party f some sort and she said she could not comp me for the weekend but to contact her on Monday, I was leaving on a Tuesday so I just preferred not to ask,

    I dont think any comp will come my way because I seem to have been outed. I do plan on another trip later this summer that will be more for sightseeing and fun, I might drop in while my spouse and son go hiking.

    This is an elaborate cover story. In reality, MWP and Zee drove a scooter all the way to Aspen hoping to find Mary Swanson and return her briefcase.

    when i was in colorado mostly to play poker, such as omaha at the ameristar on the weekends, i spent close to 3 weeks there, and on the final day, i lost over $4500 of my 18k bankroll. ive never lost as much in 1 day, split between 3 different casinos percentage wise, as i did on that final day in blackhawk before i took an Uber all the way to deadwood quite pissed off. that cost a lot of money too by the way.

    i noticed the games were dealing about 90% of 6 deck shoes particularly lodge and monarch, and i never played any single or double decks, only shoes. i feel like shoes help to hide the fact u can count. and id eventually have 3 spots of 100, the monarch even let me do more than 3 spots. and i lost so much so quickly every time the count went good. somethings not right in colorado. plus the dealers were bragging to ploppies about getting 80-90k a year in tips and suggesting they get dealing jobs.

    I think that the casinos that are cutting off less than a deck (as in CO and a couple of other places of Ameristar and its parent company) of a 6 deck shoe have found a way to shuffle cards through ASM that defeats the card counter without having much of an effect on the ploppy or their own odds. ASM's can be programmed but such discussions are not allowed here.

    but we have to have an admitted pathological gambler spread his

    The cMaybe he is a casino shill of sorts working for kickbacks. Nah. Just a dummy.
