    Just remember, Juanda had "tweeps"
    LOL. Looked like the usual cast of characters from that show a few years back. I think it was called Poker at Night, but you may remember exactly what it was called.
    Ok, it was Poker After Dark.

    I had an odd experience on 50 cent 100 play yesterday.
    I held 6,7,9,10 off suit.
    I got air.
    Not sure of the odds to miss the 8 100 times in a row?
    I didn't take a picture but it was funny or odd enough to appreciate the air ball for a moment staring at 100 misses.
    It is very rare to get zero money back on a hand of 100 play when betting max lines/coin.
    I can't recall it ever happening.

    Some other odd things to happen to me with Video Poker.
    I went 212 consecutive draws missing the 4 to the Royal on single line.
    It was an odd enough streak that I counted each miss.

    6 hour session on 100 play quarters and I never made a Royal.
    3 times in that session I had the 4 to the royal draw and missed all 300 attempts.

    Of course I did flop a Royal on 100 play quarters for 100k.
    Flopped a Royal on 9 Line Spin Poker Dollars for 36k.
    Flopped a Royal on 10 play nickels for 2k.
    Flopped a Royal at the Stardust on Nickel Double Up Full Pay 4700 Jokers for 705 Dollars.
    Flopped a Left to Right Sequential, In Spades, for a little over 1500 dollars at the Slots-A-Fun bar when they reversed the meters, by accident, to be a 5% winner.

    I was playing a quarter 50 play machine running off 800 dollars in Free Play.
    I was being cute and decided to play 1 line only and on the first hand flopped four 8s lol.
    The last hand I was playing max bet/lines and was dealt 3 aces.
    Didn't make 1 four of a kind.
    Of course that isn't unusual but it stung being my last hand.

    My friend flopped a 7 perfect on 5 play 10/7 double bonus once and we laughed about it.
    I dared him to hold it and he did.
    I regretted the dare.

    Hi Monet, this situation you describe above has a cycle of about 1 in every 7293.6 times.

    Thank You for always giving me the math for free.
    I bet the odds are difficult to find a friend that would hold a 7 perfect on any video poker machine on purpose!
    I'm sure you have met people with that mindset though.
    This Subculture isn't exactly what you might consider normal, mainstream or rational.

    The best part about playing that game, at the Stardust, was that the Rio/CET was paying me $7.25 an hour to do so lol.

    Yes the odds are slim to find such a friend Monet. Perhaps there is some weird loss rebate situation where that hold gets you to a required loss threshold since all the hands are guaranteed losers (if playing multihand) for that deal. At a craps table one time (this was at GSR in Reno), to speed things up some dude tossed me some nickels since I was slowing the game down by being a nit in regards to asking some question about a match play coupon I had to the pit ("Here buddy, just bet it" - tossing me some nickels) and this might be the type of guy that would do it.

    Your scenario is a bit more common.
    I'm one of those impatient people that would do something like that.
    I've done many things like that paying people to cut in line or paying for their groceries to speed things up or many other scenarios.
    However, to find someone who is going to hold a hand that pays nothing back is another realm or level.
    This is the same guy who won over 400k playing dice with 4 to 5 Crown and Sevens under the rail.
    Same guy that threw over 4k into the air in the streets of Reno as we were going from one Casino to the Next.
    Funny thing is he has way more patience compared to me.
    One time I was watching him play the Don't and another guy was opposite of a long table playing the Do.
    The guy asked the box... what do I have to bet for him to lose?
    This probably resonates with me more as I was there.
    Funny how people think that dice is you against me while the house covers all bets.

    I think you are right Monet, your friend is at a higher level of seizing the moment. I like people like that (just as you do), but they usually don't last that long.
