I don't use trip goals at the others, so there are plenty of opportunities to maximize wins.

    Milking one location is not the end of the world as errantly perceived by my critics. What's wrong with playing for comps at one place? Nothing. Many APs do it.

    Some members in this forum just can't handle it if you don't play their way.

    HTF would you know BoSox? What is apparent is not what is genius. If you don't know that already without my pissant ass telling you, then you are beyond all help. You're supposed to be an AP that knows the edge and ROR BEFORE placing a bet, but in reality you don't because you can't sim shit. Either show me some data or STFU and GTFOH.
    Wave, you are within driving distance of up to almost thirty casinos that you say that you might visit only once in between 12 and 18 months where you use spreads anywhere between 1 to 8 and 1 to 20 based on the unit size. Meanwhile, you visit a local casino weekly where your goal there is to only milk the casino for comps. You accomplish this by limiting yourself to using very small spreads, as well as having small wins to the extreme of that end by actually sometimes Wonging out of positive counts to keep that win modest. Are you insane?

    All those weekly trips that you play for comps, just what do you think you are gaining? What are you losing in lost time, and money doing that bullshit weekly? I call that being pennywise and pound foolish, to say the least. The funny part is that you do not even see it yourself.

    You seem like you're trying to be helpful in your last post, so I'll dial it back a bit.

    I don't play to make you happy BoSox, I play to make me happy. We, obviously, do not share the same goals. Yeah, it's only about 20 bucks an hour, but it's still fun...which is still important to me. Trips to the other stores are more like a workday, trips to my weekly seem like a play day. A :20-:30 drive to go have a little fun is worth it to me...after all, that's about the same amount of time to get to the gym or office.

    And BTW...since when does any player have to justify themself to you?

    Bosox, the local casino is like a local “Cheers” bar or your girl friend. You want to treat it with respect. You keep the rough stuff for the whores (far away casinos) where you f%$&k, move on. Your girl friend is for the long run, the others are for quickies.

    Based on the accuracy of the interface with the "new good dealer", I would suggest you have already lost it. Rethinking you is over.

    Going from 40:1 at a shoe end after a max bet is soooooooo niave. Design some better bet structures for your stores.
    Luck is nothing more than probability taken personally!

    Time will tell. I think my larger mistake was continuing to play after security showed up so they could count me down, which they probably hadn’t yet.

    So far so good: 2 more sessions without heat, though both short.

    Again, the 40:1 was a one-time thing; I don’t normally do that.

    Has anyone experienced this sort of heat where they put in a "fake" dealer to check you out and mess with your head? Everything about that move could have been a coincidence, which is what's bugging me.
