    Ah yes.

    Back when Jimmy Olson used to tag along with Superman.

    Mickey my friend, I know nothing about keno or video keno. And I have no doubt, you are one of the top players of that game and most that you decide to play.

    But I have a problem with anyone who says I do this or that with no mistakes. Players often make these claims in blackjack count debates. I can plays my super duper count as fast as you can play hi-lo, with no mistakes. How does one KNOW this? Unless you are video taping your play and analyzing each play, you or anyone else can't possible know how many mistakes they are making.

    I am quite sure you are making some mistakes, because you are a human being. You may be making very minimal mistakes, maybe have the lowest error rate around, because you are a top player in your field, but unless you are claiming to not being a human being, you my friend, are making some mistakes.
    KJ, it's easy to tell you've never played video keno. LOL!

    Doing goofball stuff like this can actually be good cover for an AP on a play. I remember Bob Dancer writing about being on a play and doing stuff similar to what Alan does here. The short of it was casino personnel let Bob stay on a play while pitching a serious couple off of it because they thought the couple were AP's but thought Bob was just a goofball degenerate gambler.

    I think that it's goofballs rationalizing goofball stuff, but in a different manner. After all, the gamblers exist because of the casinos.

    Don't try to prove that which is everywhere; conversely, don't try to deny that which is nowhere.

    Yes that's true, however, I dont think I could bring myself to act like Alan in that video.


    There have been a few times when I hit something and the attendant saying something like, "you don't seem that excited." I just say, "I'm just in shock, I can't believe I finally hit something.

    There's been some activity on the VP speed challenge. A guy played ten minutes of FPDW on two adjacent machines at Santa Fe Station. His total hourly rate was over 2500 hands. That's fast. The Wizard posted a couple of videos to YouTube.

    Now the same challenger is going to establish a single-machine record.

    This guy plays 2 machines fast. So what. He probably made more errors than anyone would care to admit. Most people make mistakes playing comfortably. But good for him and his ten minutes of wizzard fame.

    He played error-free. I thought it was pretty cool.

    Just curious--I did not watch anywhere close to the whole thing. But I noticed on one hand he kept ace queen suited with a deuce. On another he only kept the deuce. I don't play deuces. Is that because there was another of that suit discarded in the latter? Anyone know the reason and/or the numbers? Arci???

    I don't have my strategy cards in front of me, but I thought you keep just the deuce if the two-to-the-royal involves the ace. If it's K-J suited or whatnot, you keep the three to the royal with the deuce. It's a close call, but I think that's correct. Anybody know for sure?
