Thread: Skid Row

  1. #1
    It was tough this morning on the Skids.
    Notice how I only played 9 Lines on Deluxe Spin Poker instead of the Max 20!?
    Blasted Kicker Three on the Wrong Game!
    It was nice to listen to this song while making a few Jackpots to help with the Skid Row Blues.
    On the upside I am Hot as a Pistol for the last 4 days in the NHL with all Mental Bets... Doh!

    The 4 Ducks are kind of Funny because it is very rare that I draw with a dealt 4oak.
    Some of us worry about the dreaded Malfunction showing a 5th Deuce lol.
    I know one guy who always draws when he gets a dealt 4oak because he wants to see the machine malfunction and fight to get paid lol.
    Never Happened YET in over 20 years.
    That doesn't stop him from keeping the Dream alive.

    Another guy I know swears he will quit all Gambling if he gets a Redrawn Royal after a 2 4 6 8 10 Rainbow Flop.
    Never happened to him but I don't believe he would quit if he did make that hand.
    He says he would but I say he is Lying through his Teeth!!

    As you know, it is 1 in 47 of receiving 2000 coins for that hold (versus hundreds of billions to 1 on receiving the 5th duck I would imagine) - gotta do it as you know.

    Is that correct?
    I'm a bit too tired to think lol.
    4 Aces for 4 Outs seems better than 47 to 1.
    I'm a bit loopy right now so I might not be thinking right.
    It's so much easier the last time when it just dealt me the 2222A.
    That way you just have to make sure you held them all before drawing.
    You ever notice how much slower you hold a hand when its Dealt???

    Wow, some nice impressive hits Monet! Good for you. Do you ever get barred? About 4 years ago I used to belonged to Wongs paysite for at least ten years and one of the members also played some high stakes video poker at times in vegas and I'm curious if you know this person he goes by the handle Chairman? I never met him but he was a real good highly respected AP player.

    When you mentioned skid row in the title I thought that MaxPen tipped you off on his report of Singer's circumstances.

    yes it is 4 outs Monet - I was wrong. 4 out of 47. Great point about the slower speed when dealt a premium hand.

    No Worries!
    I know you were just setting me up with a hanging curveball question so I could belt it out of the park.

    Good Catch on the Dealt Premium Hand.
    I should of clarified that.
    I've certainly made speed errors but never a speed error on a dealt premium.

    I don't really get mixed up in the MDawg, Singer or Tasha Threads.
    They don't bother me and I don't bother them.
    When I post or you interact with me it is just like being in person.
    I'm not trying to troll or create an online persona.
    I basically act the same on this forum as I do in real life.
    All of my Hate or Beefs have usually been because of a real world meetings with the actual people or experience.
    The whole thing about me bashing some members is because I know that their online persona is a contradiction to the real world person.

    I have had some problems where I have been no mailed or excluded from the players club.
    Those problems have occurred in the last few years.
    Usually what happens is they just change the pay scales or they take out the game completely.
    I heard that after I hit a large Jackpot at one Casino they changed the point system and basically killed it for everyone lol.
    I didn't mean to do that but I was playing a very high 99% game with Monster Comp.
    We are talking like 4000 dollars in comp for every 8 hours of play.
    It's not my fault I broke the machine lol.
    Those bastards never mailed me another mailer ever again!?
    You would think they would want me to come back and fire on a bad game to get some of their money back but sometimes Casinos just decide they don't want the action anymore.
    Many places in Vegas have been playing scared for a long time.
    They have no clue how to let these players just keep firing so they fall into the dice pit or sports book.
    Benny, Jack and Ted understood that.

    The powers that be have been hip to AP VP and they just don't want that sort of action.
    The Riviera No Mailed/Excluded me before they closed down because I kept pulling the card out and resetting it.
    Stupid because it actually didn't reset but I thought it did.
    Wasn't worth it because they had some good mail going at the time.
    IMO VP is dead in Vegas.
    I should learn more about what MickeyCrimm does and how to do it but that requires more constant hustle and its hard to teach a dog new tricks.
    I'm very serious about giving it all up and moving to a Farm in the Midwest or Deep South.
    I let the perfect place with 18 acres and a 3000 square foot house get away from me recently.
    So my plan or choice is to either buy a big RV and travel around and stay in Vegas or buy a house/farm in the country.
    Truth be told I found a perfect place in Vegas but its about 80 grand too much for me.
    I'd be upside down for a few years.
    My wife would be happy because she doesn't really want to leave Las Vegas.
    I would stay here if we buy that house and that would be the end of it but like I say I don't like the idea of being upside down without a safety net for the perfect Vegas House.
    Perfect for me and my family in our situation that is.

    This whole thread was somewhat of a joke because your favorite OneHitWonder said I was on the skids recently.
    Which is True!!
    It can all come crashing down at any moment!

    Thanks Monet. I'm guessing the BDW you hit the ducks on shown above offers what it offers comp-wise and won't get torched for awhile all because of the 65 coin payout for the straight flush. Unlike you, a lot of guys won't hold the one duck 3 to a straight flush with the one gap suited gapper (like deuce 7-9 suited) - they'll toss everything but the duck since the straight only gives you your money back (they will hold the duck with suited connectors like duck 7-8 suited since that is abc stuff). So the hold on that game is probably better than theoretical by a bigger margin than average as you would expect with slightly unusual pay tables like that BDW or of course highly unusual paytables. Conjecture on my part of course.

    That Straight Flush Payout is kind of a big deal.
    It's basically like Two Pair in a Two Pair game.
    You don't feel the pain as much compared to a game that pays even money on two pair.
    I've gotten torched on the better 99.45 version, because of, well... variance, which is kind of funny when you think about it.
    I'm crushing the 98.9 version but getting killed on the 99.45 version???
    Huh, that doesn't seem to make sense lol.
    It helps that I have made 3 Sets of Deuces with the Ace and 4 Royals on Single Line no less, in a short span of 3 months with limited play.
    And I caught up on just making regular deuces.
    Of course, I usually play the 99.45 version on Spin so you can feel it more so during bad runs.
    Especially if you don't make many premiums.
    I don't really worry about the individual game though.
    It's all just one big long game to me as I am sure you understand.
    Doesn't matter if I am playing VP, Reels, Poker or Sports Book.

    In the end its like the scene in the Hustler.
    "This game isn't like Football.
    You don't get paid for yardage.
    At the end of the day you count up your money and you see who's the best."

    Monet, thank you for the reply to my post. I found it very informative as well as enjoyable to read about all your future plans and possibilities. I hope that you and your wife find a place to live that makes you both happy for a long time.

    So true, so true, and also applies to blackjack. A true AP. The only 100% real obstacle that is unavoidable is age!

    No doubt.
    The major problem for me is Mental Bets.
    Winning Mental Bets can be detrimental to ones psyche.

    Update on this perfect house in Vegas.
    They took it off the market last night but they have done that a few times in the past.
    They have been trying to sell it for over a year now but it appears they are just asking too much.
    I'm guessing it is going to go back on the market in a few days at a new number.
    The housing market is crazy right now.
    I seen 5 houses that were interesting in Missouri and Mississippi get contingent in less than 2 days after going on the market.
    Its tough out there.
    Many people are buying these houses Sight Unseen these days.
    I'm not brave or bold enough to make that move.

    Small Moves, Ellie... Small Moves.

    Monet, I hope you could answer a few questions on the above quote thank you.

    1 Regarding the 4k comp dollars earned over the 8 hours of play, how is it dispersed in percentages for food, free play, gift shops, etc? Is the dispersion given out only on a monthly basis to be used at your discretion or are you limited to percentages to be used only, on a weekly or daily basis?

    2 That 4k comp dollars was it all earned on a combination of using multiple cards? Could you elaborate a little on this?

    3 Do hosts become a pain in the ass and frequently approach you when playing? The reason for the question is does a host come by and say hello and call you by the name of the card inserted?

    4 Am I assuming correctly that whoever's player's card is inserted in a machine it can be detected by casino floor staff or related to them from the eye above by computer?

    Every one, and everyone, supposedly, knows it all. Yet, no thing, nor nothing, is really and actually known and understood by any one, or anyone.

    In gambling, the biggest suckers are the ones who think that they are beating the house. It always wins, unless it lets you win, to give you an even worse beating.

    Another tough night on the skids.
    I started with a nice Late Lunch from the Weber Kettle.
    Prime Rib infused with Garlic and Rosemary with a good Rub on the outside.
    I don't want to list all the powders I used for the Rub.
    You can find your own online with ease.

    First Picture Raw.
    Next Picture Rested and Cut down the Middle.
    Third Picture Plated with Mashed Potatoes and French Style Green Beans.
    Love the taste of those type of Green Beans.
    I whipped up some homemade gravy after taking the picture.
    Reminds me of my Vietnam Gook Killing Father and my Lowly Upbringing.
    Notice the Cheap Dalstrong Knife.
    It gets the job done but Fuck that 50 dollar garbage.

    After late lunch and sleep I missed betting on the sure thing of the Lose-A-Peg Jets.
    I should of set the alarm or told the wife.
    I wanted to bet it but didn't care enough to make a point of it.
    Shits costing me money.
    I'm not professional like Redietz.
    Got out up 12k and some change on the Video Poker.
    More Bullets to Fire in the Book.
    I've had about a 7000 dollar downswing.
    Fuckers want to track you if you bet a dime or more.
    Bastards make you break it up all over town if you get serious.
    Hate this Chicken Shit Mob Infested Town.
    I pray to the lord above every night that ZenKing finds the strength to destroy them.

    So when the Fun Stops...
    BET MORE!!
    Flopped 5 sevens... sorta.

    Very impressive cooking their monet. Looks great! I could never cook like that. On a side note, by chance, you may have missed my above post #16 either way I realize you do not owe me one word of advice, Thank you.
