    So, the money just stayed in the cage at the Borgata - he never really walked out the door with anything? LOL - that almost has to be against the law if you could prove it. That's the beauty of big time bucks - he thinks he is zooming them and they are actually zooming him. What did he start with - does he even get his initial stakes back?

    The friend must have the eyes of an eagle - 20/10 like Ted Williams? Wonder how many players in the world knew about this and wanted to punch him when he blew the technique???

    The demands that the casino agreed to were so absurd and so unbelievable that, to me it's obvious that they were free rolling him.

    No idea. I've never put a penny into sbr so not an issue here. The guy will always be broke but always able to buy into the highest games and play 30K a hole on the golf course.

    My buddy was so excited for me to watch that a handful of years ago, thinking I'd love it. Thought is was decent but not something i'd watch more than once.

    Love that flick. Maybe because I spent years at a sales driven start-up though. Ribisi does a great job as usual.

    I tried to toss it on, but xfinity on-demand is the single worst service ever created and you can't actually search for movies. Have to magically find the on-demand screen which is 99% impossible and then find movies, then scroll through 6347114814317946619378 movies that start with B. I gave up.

    It's fukking impressive how worthless they are.
