    Not mentioned was the rather extensive expansion that is underway at DT Grand. That kind of expense (doubling of rooms for a place that is always dead), seems to not make sense, and isn't the kind of investment that is recouped short-term....like a pending sale.

    Any thoughts?
    It was simply a slot director that didn't realize the machines had a positive setting.

    Eddie G. rumored to be the biggest winner overall on the play.

    Krackman had an article in Gaming Today where he mentioned he spoke to nobody that lost on the play.

    Odd. Nobody but someone with a computer readout knows who was the biggest winner from that play. Gambling rumors are like fishermen rumors.

    Whoever "Krackman" is....you could line up a thousand players who played that and come up with 998 who claimed to have won. More than likely, he asked people who came back and said "I was playing a $180/hour play" or something similar.

    We need a JOURNALIST to go into DTG and ask them to show the real outcome and then write about it--not just repeat hearsay, rumors, or supposition. Where is the Anthony Curtis crowd? And GT hasn't had a reputable, persistent, investigative, interesting columnist since I left. Just compare the size of yesteryear's publications to those pathetic little fish-wrappers they embarrassingly put out today.

    Krackman is a morbidly obese sports betting tout who hangs out at South Point who was featured on the showtime show ACTION. Claims to be a professional bettor, is definitely a tout.

    I only put in one session before they shut off the points. I lost in the neighborhood of $3,500 playing the $2 denominations. I was getting absolutely raped. A member of this forum was actually watching me play, he didn't play because he really didn't know the strategy and didn't want to slow me down asking for help. Obviously he's a big ass Schleprock.

    I really thought the shit was going to go down after what I have observed that night when I left and didnt didn't go back. I really don't like grinding out all day on video poker anymore anyways, but had they not cut off the points I probably would have put some more time in.

    I find it hard to believe that everyone who put in a decent amount of time all came out ahead. However, that doesn't matter. If they keep putting time in playing positive expectation plays they will end up in the black.

    If you enter the AP World thinking every play you make that you'll come out a winner you should probably rethink choosing Advantage play. Yes, there are some plays where you're almost guaranteed to come out ahead but if expand your toolbox enough it's highly unlikely you'll be able to avoid good situations that aren't risky with variance.

    Positive expectation doesn't mean you come out on top in the short run or a small trial size. I know you know this Axel....I am just saying.

    I am not sure you can always trust AP's when it comes to their results on these promotions. I tend to trust people that have built up some credibility with me and that I find credible with their longer term results if they share any, but with short term results, like a promotion, no one wants to admit they were the ones on THAT side of the bell curve.

    Reminds me of a blackjack promotion in Connecticut about 10 years ago. I forget if it was Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun. I want to say Mohegan Sun. I also forget the exact promotion. It had to do with doubling down I think. Like you could double down for more money, maybe triple down on first 2 cards. Whatever it was the game was +EV off the top.

    So this promo was for 1 day. A 24 hour period running midnight to midnight. I took the train up as I always did when visiting either Connecticut casino, arriving probably about 10:30 pm. The place was packed. Not a seat to be had on a weekday night. It was pretty much a card counter convention. I eventually got a seat, maybe 1 am. And almost immediately started getting my ass kicked. I was like losing every double down opportunity. By 6am I was down more than 5 figured which was a lot for me at the time, and I was realizing I might not have brought enough money.

    During the course of the morning and early afternoon, things turned and I slowly clawed back to even. I think I was in the black for a short time late in the afternoon. And then early evening, I went backwards again. I quit around 8pm as I was tired and wanted to catch the last train out. I was down a few thousand I forget.

    So in the days after on the blackjack forums, not a single person admitted to losing except me. Everyone made a fortune. I was apparently the only player that lost. Highly unlikely.
