One other thing I forgot to mention about the most recent Baldwin drop which I'm surprised I forgot to mention earlier since it dovetails into what we were just talking about in regards to massive -EV run-ups was the following:
    Barnes stated that there was no way Vegas mass murderer Paddock got his wealth from video poker and that Barnes was virtually certain he got it from money-laundering or as a CIA asset IIRC (or both).
    So while these guys on America's Untold Stories are pretty sharp, in this they are clueless (in the sense that they shouldn't assume that's impossible that he got a lot of it or even all of it from VP - obviously he could have). Like we talked just about, Paddock could've easily gone on some sort of high denom (100-hand $5 along with multi-hand [3,5,10 hand] $25,$50 or $100 denom for example - I seem to recall he played at nosebleed stakes) super-duper run-up with dealt royals and other premium hands. I'm not writing off the idea that Paddock got some of his fortune from CIA shit and laundering, but there's no fucking way I am writing off the idea that he got it from VP. Of course he could have gotten it from VP.
    I knew a Crazy Chinese Girl that played a ton of 9/6 double double.
    Dollar and some 5 Dollar.
    She ran it up to just over 250k in one year.
    And she played horrid.
    I mean she didn't know strategy whatsoever.

    Anyone can run up huge amounts on any game.
    Except maybe Reels... Those Fuckers will eat your money like you can't imagine lol but you know this.
    Like I said before.
    A lady at the Skyline years ago hit 6 Royals on 4 different Single Line Machines in about 6 to 8 hours!
    That's why I don't get on Alan too much about the 18 yo's.
    I dunno man.
    That's a tough one to swallow but I seen some goofy shit over the last 32 years in this town.
    Most of what I have done is exploitation but I've been on some monster runs.
    My old pal taught me that Bet More Win More bullshit.
    It's impulsive but interesting.
    Once you get so far ahead you really do have the hammer.
    I can't back that up... that's experience talking.

    One of my favorite run 'em up and lose it all but make friends with a guy who has 7 Million+ in the bank movies...
    You should of stood Nicky.
    You would of won.
    I came in with 10,000.
    I lost 10,000.
    No big deal.

    One of the best lines in the movie... "I need FUCK YOU money!"
    Thanks Monet, I'll have to putlocker that one. I had to go to part 7 since I wanted to see her hole card, LOL.
    edit:looks like the whole thing is on youtube so no need to putlocker it:

    lol he doesn't even want the 10 thousand.
    Tries to give it to the girl he helps in the beginning but she gets it to him anyway.
    And we cut to him drinking some vodka with all the money on the table and he squeezes the hundos feeling the itch.
    I know that feeling.
    Been There.
    We all been there.

    Thanks again Monet. I watched the movie. Like Gymkata, who the fuck cares what the movie's about - the fact that it was made in '86 is all that matters as far as making it worth the watch. Looking beyond the date it was made though, I liked the movie. Mr. WKRP in Cincinnati played the lawyer (Howard Hesseman/Dr. Johnny Fever) and may he rest in peace (died in January of this year). He was the shit back then so of course they were going to cast him. Then you had the awesome downtown '86 Vegas backdrop including the Mint. The banker gets shot full of holes and lives and Burt still gets his trip to Venice.

    They remade the movie with Jason Statham but it is completely unwatchable.
    I didn't even try.
    Seen the preview and didn't like the idea anyway.
    How are you gonna remake a Burt Reynolds movie?
    Doesn't work.

    How about that scene inside the Glitter Gulch with the arcade machines lol.
    80's Baby!

    Another Great Line.
    Later... that will be our Password.
    It's Later.
    Later is our Password... Asshole.
    Easy Nick.
    Fozzy Wozzy lol.

    Yes great scene (the pinball machine very briefly appearing behind Osgood's left shoulder was Harlem Globetrotters). Recall that former NFL pro Pete Koch (one of De Marco's bodyguards) also played a big role in Heartbreak Ridge (Eastwood) as Swede, who Clint beat up to get respect from his troop of misfits.

    Unexpected pleasant surprise - another Eric Weinstein roasting from minute 5 or so to minute 15 or so of Timothy's podcast (I was just interested in the main subject matter):

    Kind of hate the show myself but since you highly recommend it I must put my personal feelings aside and give it a listen.
    I didn't even listen to the MC podcast.
    I think I have only listened to two or maybe three of these lifetime.
    Thanks tableplay... appreciated.

    Oh God Help Me... I'm 30 seconds in and I want to slit my wrists lol.
    What is with these two assholes and the cheese?
    Why can't they just be two regular guys who gamble.
    I hate all this high energy fake bullshit.
    I want this to be similar to Larry King format.

    Scotty is Great!
    Sounds Real.
    Very Down to Earth.
    Believable.
    Listening to the other two is like nails on a chalkboard.
    Not so bad if you like nails on a chalkboard.
    Yes, I am skimming through because its a bit of a slow draw.

    I love how Scotty completely dismisses Munchkin.
    That was worth the listen.
    Around 13:00 lol

    RIP the Stardust.
    I miss the joint.
    Good Listen tableplay.
    Thanks!
    IMO the old ways are the best ways!
    Kudos to Scotty!
    "Oh you got too much on Notre Dame... ok give me 10 grand on the other side"
    "You tell me who to bet on ok"

    I'm not a big fan of Dancer, but this was a stand-out episode so I had to reco it. I'm glad you enjoyed it Monet. Scotty's stories were really something - basically this episode could have just as easily been called Stories of Mob bookmaking in Vegas Casino Sportsbooks.

    Let's not forget that he just casually mentioned that he made 47 MILLION dollars during his time at the Stardust!!

    Great point. Another good one was the Billy Walters story about Walters moving the line (via Stardust) and then betting into the manipulated line all over the street.
