    Hey G Man,

    My dad has done low stakes $300/day milking from the casinos for decades so he got me into it. I'm just trying to take it to the next level.

    $25 to 2x200 double deck. One casino that I got two backoffs in is newly remodeled and must have state of the art security measures because I was out in 15 min and 50 min on my first and second trip there respectively. Everywhere else I seem to get decent mileage at.

    All right!
    Many players are watching movies and think it's going to be an easy ride... Happy to see you're not one of them.

    Aggressive spread...I like it...

    Having an 'act' will help longevity....when you make your moves, try to look the part...A GAMBLER & the $$$l ook - think BMW, Rolex, Cartier & Tom Ford as opposed to Prius, Timex, pocket protector & grianimals...if you catch my drift

    Please keep us posted...GOOD LUCK!

    Sharky - you forgot the MIT sweatshirt. I actually saw a young guy at Bellagio wearing one. Watched his play a bit and it was non-AP. Maybe he was a plant to keep surveillance's eyes off the real team

    I think the casinos took it to the next level since your Dad’s road trip. It ain’t the same game no more..

    Thanks for the sage advice. I just completely overlooked the power of a flashy look. First impressions are everything after all.

    Playing locally I haven't noticed much of a difference besides that one joint after a remodel. You either go get the EV or you don't.

    Yes, but your 'act' is even more important...dont fret big losses, don't worry what anyone else at table does, just keep firing when time is right...of course, after showing such a spread, win, or lose, you split
