    If you are comparing the two side by side, then there are definitely going to be many more successful working class people than successful APs. I mean, the same can be said for just about anything, really. There are far more successful working class people than there are successful NFL players. Far more successful working people than there are successful SCUBA instructors, or successful hedge fund managers, or successful <fill in the blank>.
    If I can't SCUBA, then what has this all been for?
    What are you working toward?

    The obvious difference in all this is very very simple to deduce: people with jobs are proven money-makers, while people who claim to make money gambling as AP's are largely seen as being as honest as the nearest fisherman. Become vested at many of the more lucrative places of employment and if you're savvy and responsible, you'll be set for life--in funds and benefits. Many however, toss a lot of it away by finding themselves in divorce court. There is a HUGE gap between equal-earning employees who go through a divorce and those who do not.

    "It's not about the money" is a phrase I've heard all to often. My saying? "It's almost always about the money."

    Welcome to my world.

    Why is divorce so expensive?

    Because it's worth it.

    Ka-ching!

    And I say this as someone who is celebrating our 40th anniversary on Sunday--something the critics here have only been able to respond with "she's ugly" as a 65-yr. old, simply because they have no answers as to how well I've done in my video poker career by playing opposite their "phantom bucks theory" method. And BTW, it hurts them even further to know that we both have had successful working careers prior to my becoming the most knowledgeable and successful/profitable VP expert in professional playing history.

    And also BTW kew....I believe there is a place in this world for a confused soul like yourself---only it's a DARK place.

    You seem to have a much higher opinion of yourself than do others.

    Why is that?

    He's a legend in his own mind. I made more money on video poker just today than he's made in his entire life.

    What jealous anonymous people think and say is completely irrelevant. And as far as video poker is concerned, I had the most popular and beloved weekly column in Gaming Today history for nearly 8 years.

    Game, Set, and Match!

    Is it common for proven money-makers to declare bankruptcy and stiff landlords ?

    Congrat's Rob on 40 years. That's quite an accomplishment. 25 for me before the curtain dropped. Expensive? Naw, marriage is expensive. You get out what you put in should be the way. If not, divorce shouldn't be the answer but it's the only option and it takes your soul. Btw, what does a soul go for these days? Back then, it was 1/2 without regard to what was invested, inherited, and preowned.

    Yep, I know of those DARK places. I wouldn't wish that on anyone.

    How the heck do you think Trump got so rich?

    But, it is mostly strange for such a so-called professional gambling crowd to hang around gambling sites because they need someone, anyone, to put down.

    Even this realization should be well within the grasps of someone who, perhaps, applies years 1 & 2 (dry) university statistics to a slot machine. Good thing that Crimm finds exactly the same dumb "advantage" over and over, that kids easily tire of, and grow out of in search of greater mysteries and acknowledgment.

    Say, in the land of the shit-pile, everyone is king. (Sorry, I guess that I, like Blackhole, still can't resist responding to the idiocy any type of gambler puts up on the internet.)

    Nobody, and I mean NOBODY cares more about Rob Singer than jbjb...that is strange.

    I never understood why they all love to pick on Alan, but thanks for explaining...it's because they need to.

    You wouldn't know an advantage play if it bit you in the ass. Thats how stupid you are. And only stupid people like you keep going to a site and reading shit over and over again that they dont belueve in. You're braindead.

    Coach, I see the same traits in the sportsbook crowd of regulars. Only it's verbal instead of written. Quite often not said to someone face to face. Some guys get really fired up over politics. They start hollering and then get 86ed. It's the dangest thing I've ever seen.
