    Next time you’re playing HoldEm find another degen at the table to play the Red/Black game with. Even 5 bucks a color can have some serious swings and it’s fun to add bonuses like 2x if it’s a solid flop and and 5x if it’s a suited flop. I’ve been down in the game but still profiting because of some unlucky sob who cant find a black card. Also been the unlucky sob plenty of times but that’s what makes it fun.

    No way, back in the day that old school machine was the shit.

    It had a finite number of races and we tracked them all on a 3x5 card, with results.

    We were stuffing quarters in that thing all night long, made tons.

    Then, about 6 am, the casinos guys came over and plugged something into the machine. They said they were running a check.

    It never paid out the same again. The races had different results than what was repeated over the previous 10 hours.

    Tough crowd.

    Now I see new machines, with a screen and everything.

    Few years back I bet on those escaped convicts in New York staying at large over (12? I think) days and won. I think thereís a Netflix show on that situation now.

    Oh another stupid system I tried every time I went to Vegas back in the day was the Keno play and it never paid off..

    First stop in Vegas was to walk up to the Keno cashier and buy 100 $1 games on a number sheet I made.. Throw down the Benny.. At the end of the trip I'd go collect. Never won more then $40 bucks at one time with that system of play.. I'd say I did that a dozen times in my life time. I stopped doing that after the 12th time. Never played KENO again.

Didnít take out a dime. Good times. Bodog was a bitch to take money out of.

    Woulda won if it went to the 3rd. BigFoot was gassed; one-eyed Fedor woulda finished him.

    Yep he would have too. Big Foot made Fedor look average though. Fedor was gassed too. Sucks they had to call it. Oh well. That one helped knock me down to 1K but I built it back anyway. Could have been different had he won though, and added on 1K to the balance.

    Those were the days.

    Just watched the end of the 2nd round again. Let the man fight! Fck. I probably broke something that night. Got so excited when I thought he had his foot, but not even close with that big footed monster.

    Lol. I just ordered food for the wife/kid (family responsibility: done), and was going to watch it on tape (like Hugo; pull out the old 8mm). Nothing else interests me tonight.

    betting on if perez hilton(i think that is who it was) had a picture of miley cyrus's vagina and would release it. I made a thread about it. Easy winner.

    Was living and working in Vegas. I rarely played slots, but had a weakness for Sigma Derby. I started playing around 10 one night at the Tropicana. I was down well over $100, and hit a long shot to put me up a little bit. It was 7:30 am by then and I started my job @ 8:00. I went straight to work thinking wtf was that!
