Thread: Biggest Gambling Mistakes You Have Ever Made?

  1. #1
    On my very first Craps Game, I decided that I didn't want to play Craps anymore, and I pressed "C and E," Thinking it meant "Cash Out/End Game," turns out that "C and E," is in fact a bet, and I lost. I remembered being confused and asking a Craps Player why the TITO didn't print out after I pressed the "Cash Out/End Game " button. He gently replied something like "C and E means Craps, and Eleven," and a 6 and a 5 came up, so you lost the bet.. Had you gotten 7/11, you would have won $100 on $12 bet." So, I learned the very hard way that "C and E " in Craps definitely does not mean "Cash Out/End Game,.

    So, what are the biggest Gambling Mistakes you have ever made?

    Very early in my Blackjack Career, I had two 10s, so 20. The Dealer had a single 10, so I thought I was Golden and would win. I was feeling overly cocky. I had a big happy smile on my face. The Dealer turned over an A(11) oh shit, I lost! My big happy smile turned into a look of horrified shock in literally seconds as I realized I lost.

    Ok Blackjackpro (or Nathan/tasha), exactly how far into this blackjack career are you? 2 days? a week? Because what you are describing occurs numerous times a day for anyone that really plays and puts in reasonable play. It is as common as seeing a homeless person in Las Vegas.

    And, while I know YOU won't understand this, I will say it anyway. For a card counter, this occurrence is going to happen even more frequently because a card counter is all about getting to the high positive counts...whatever style of play he may employ to get there. And when we get to these desired high counts, often times the results are 20 vs 20 pushes or the 20 vs 21 loss that you described because the remaining cards are "rich" with Aces and 10 value cards. And what is even worse is those 20 vs 20 pushes and 20 vs 21 losses occur with our Max bet out because the count is high.

    That IS card counting my friend and you would know this (and that it is pretty common) if you were really a blackjackpro.

    I played playing mixed games at bellagio. We had been playing Archie (aka 5 card triple draw hi-low split). I had been running horribly and got AA88. Not the greatest hand, but definitely playable in most situations. It is me and some guy heads-up with position on me. I draw, miss, but bet. Next draw I hit an 8 for 888/AA. I bet, guy raises me, I 3-bet him. He calls. I stand pat on last draw. He thinks.. thinks.. breaks and draws 1. I bet, he folds a King up. I'm a bit confused, but hey if someone shows me their cards I show them mine cuz I'm dumb like that. So I show my hand and hear this gasp from the table. Then realize we'd only been playing triple-draw low. The guy just gets up and leaves the poker room without a word. He left his chips but came back and got them later.

    Not my biggest, but definitely my greatest !

    Well maybe?!? Personally I don't really care. But Axel, Poker Grinder and others seem rather certain and since they are inexplicably obsessed with the whole Tasha/Nathan and other sock puppet thing, I am inclined to go with their unhealthy obsession and feeling that you are Nathan.

    Either way....one thing we know for sure is you are no blackjack pro.

    There is ZERO chance BJpro, LS, Nathan and other socks are not connected Somehow.

    I'm 95% certain It's Nathan. I think she is addicted to the forum game that she is playing, and due to her condition, this is something she will never let it go. She has been proven a deceiver, a catfisher and has an addictive compulsive nature. I'm certain she uses "disposable" burner phones. Perhaps not by Design, but out of necessity for whatever financial reasons. I have no doubt she uses diffrent burner phones on diffrent wifi networks that she frequents. You can get burner phones cheap(probably free, is Obama phones still a thing?) and you dont need any phone service to use them on WiFi. Add in her home PC, friends and family, work and she is set up for some proper sockpuppeteering. My suggestion, just ignore all the suspected sock-puppets.

    I have always pretty much ignored Nathan/tasha/whoever. I have little interaction probably mostly because I have zero to little interest in most topics "she" ? discusses. BUT, I mean come on "blackjackpro" You really think I am going to let THAT one go by, especially when the first things she posts is how "shockingly" horrifying unusual it is to lose a pat 20 to a dealer 21. Happens a zillion times a day. She may be a BJ pro but she ain't a blackjack pro.

    While your advice for people to just ignore this person is sound advice...maybe some of the best you have ever given, it is pretty hypocritical when you and your "buddies" seem to obsess over this person and everything she says and does.

    Yea... It's just a coincidence that BlowJobPro jumps over to this forum when they get booted from WOV and "just happens" to make their first post on Luscious SweetLips very first, and only, post here.

    Of course he also couldn't pass up a post of Nathan's: https://vegascasinotalk.com/forum/sh...ll=1#post90150

    Just ignore her and all her multiple personalities and maybe she'll go away.

    Being a former craps dealer, other dealers would say in a live game that "C and E" means casino employee. A way to encourage tips when a suit is not around.

    She will keep trying hoping something sticks. She tries to come up with something AP's might be interested in. Unfortunately for her, she dose not have any real knowledge about gambling, so she can't fake it. And, she makes lots of puppeteer errors so it's easy to figure them out. She doesn't have the discipline to remain hidden long enough or well enough to be a proper sock.
