    Went to my casino today and tried my darndest but came up short. Took my last 100 and vamoosed while I could escape. The outcome wasn't what I wanted but that's okay. Down 200 but live to fight another day, huh?

    I like your thinking far out. Keep some of your buy-in in your pocket for another day.

    Can't always be on the receiving side, and when you must donate, don't give them everything you take in.

    nothing compares to winning.
    I dare say the adrenaline rush and excitement of gambling is something I enjoy also because I don't want to listen to the aholes here post oh.oh, well, liman gambles to lose, yada yada yada........
    you are damn straight, lose a little today, tomorrow could be the day.

    When I walk out of a casino with some coins in my pocket, even if there are not as many there as when I walked in, I feel I have not been defeated. After all, I was -- OK, should have been -- prepared to leave it all behind, hence what I still have is a profit of sorts.

    Mental masturbation? So what? I tell them, "Make sure you count these beans, the ones you don't have, too, [multiple expletives deleted]!"

    I know that you don't gamble to lose I've watched you play on the bubble craps machine and you are there to win! But with that said I've watched many players that play to lose they will never change the way they play any casino game. The worst are the ones that say they read one book or took one class and that is the way they are going to play!

    If you have read anything on the psychology on gambling you will find out that there are players that play to lose as some of us find that hard to believe!
    Some of us play for the entertainment of it which makes me want to puke every time I hear it! But that's their game and who am I to tell them differently!

    Some love the rush they get when playing any casino game and some of us feel no emotions at all. Oh, sure I will high five someone after a good roll that I made money on by doing a fist bump, who wouldn't it. But if there are any players around I keep my emotions to myself for the most part!

    If you walked by a table I was playing on you wouldn't even know that I was winning, there would be no chips in my rack and if you looked at me you would swear that I was having a really bad day on the tables!

    For me, the worst thing you can do on any table is screaming out when someone is on a good roll or bring attention to yourself!

    No, I want my chips in my pocket when I'm playing craps!
    Linman, plays a very good game of craps to win on the bubble craps machines because I've never seen him on real tables but the bubble craps machine is really all he has to work within the state that he lives in!

    That's the nice thing about meeting other players that you read what they write you get to see them and then you know they are the real deal.

    That is wise to leave with some money.You played- took some fire- retreated to regroup and plan another battle.The worst thing to see is someone losing all and then have another buy in.

    I might leave someone out, but I played on live tables with maybe, well, lemme see....
    years back, imaplaya, and cant remember the other guys handle, J, both di tossers. I lost that day, but I was not betting my usual, I was following what they said they intended to roll.
    I played more recently with Koko in vegas, 4 sessions? I remember winning 12-13 hundred one time, 3-4 hundred one time, and losing 3-4 hundred twice with him. overall I won around him.(not to mention I also played the bubble with him, wasn't winning, but when I said hard 4, and I bet what, 28 dollars on it? it hit the next roll so I didn't lose that day)
    I played with HDgamblin man in Bethlehem, and I won 1100 and change.
    I played with ajlefty in parx, dropped around 250-300, and didn't win when I played myself there either, maybe won one session, tough to recall now
    I played with BS777, it was a quick disaster, dropped between 6-7 hundred with him. don't recall how I ended up

    my point, I play the tables the same exact way I play the bubble. (although I usually play the bubble for less min bets)
    and I would have stuck to the bubble at the station casinos couple of weeks ago, but it was impossible to get a seat until evening. Just as well though, I did great at live tables there.

    all the board members I played with, never met me before, they wouldn't lie here and say I won.
    its always a mix of wins and losses.

    Liman, I wouldn't lie for anybody, I saw you play and have always written that you play a really good game, but you play the game to win which is the way that it should be played!

    Too, bad you didn't call me when you were here I could have put you on a machine like you're used to playing but was too sick to go myself!
