Degenerate Gambling


Recommended Posts

I usually join 2 but one folded this year. I actually won one last year but we split it 3 ways for $750 us and than the winner got $100 (which was me).

 

In the past I have lost some brutal ones where it was the 2nd last week before it was decided

 

Join a 2nd chance one and the winner receives $750 us. Only 3 people left. If they want to split I will say no

Not clutch.

Glad you won! I'll probably be scalin back the volume for the playoffs, since I never feel too confident on short slates, but we'll see how I feel about my lineup once the weekend rolls around.   Af

At the Pens practice facility and Rick Tochett ends up standing next to me. It took every ounce of self control to not engage him in a conversation about the Rick Tochett Experience.

lol, I joined this survivor pool last minute because I saw the Saints as a great pick, but being a Bucs fan, I thought Bucs would win. (I can wear homer goggles too!)

 

I had no idea Saints were this good. How ridiculous is it looking back that the Bucs beat the Saints.

 

My guess is you took the Vikings in week 1 which inadvertently also saved you from the Bills/Vikings bloodbath in week 3

I was with Otto at a Casino last week. To pass sometime I head over to the Pai Gow table since you can't lose too much (but I always do).

 

Anyways what caught my eye was this. We had 4 players to the table. The dealer would shuffle the cards to in the machine next to him. He would as usual hand out the cards to each player and than his own. Than show the leftovers (I think 3/4 cards).

 

After the players have made their hands, the dealer would tap the button in front of him and it would show the 2 cards he should make as his low hand. He would than reveal his hand and take the 2 cards to make his low hand and thus showing what his high hand his.

 

Now how the hell does the casino know what the low hand should be?????? After I saw 10 hands I got up and left.

Wow, I heard of this too pool, but had no idea about the theft.

This is the $5k per square one, right? I had 10 friends that were splitting a square years back, not sure if they still do it, Im gonna have to ask.

 

Two of these same friends won a survivor pool years ago, and were supposed to collect.....$8k? I think......and the gentleman in charge was subsequently murdered, no money. Greek bookie, Im sure you know the story Wayne.

Yes $5k per square. Last few years I would talk to my younger daughter houseleague coach. He was a gambler too and we had quite a few conversations even during games. When ever he saw me he would bolt right over to me. He actually won a big survivor pool a couple of years ago. He split I think $100k among 4 buddies.

 

Yes the greek bookie. I heard.
