    I checked their room rates for march, nothing available on weekends, but we usually don't stay on weekends to avoid crowds....reasonable, 219 a night junior suite, I think the regular room was 129 or 99 some nights.
    no resort fees. 6 percent tax, Pretty sure there was little or nothing else in the area.

    If you would spend more time working on your game , you would not be so hateful
    Do you have any idea how petty you seem when you post stuff like this
    You can't win so you LASH out at those who do
    You are still afraid the casinos read these posts and are going to take out the tables
    They see everything that happens on the tables in the casinos
    they don't have to monitor the posts in this forum to know what's happening
    Your , "PARANOIA" is getting the better of you
    Come to Mesa and let me show you what the casinos see when the , "MESA GUYS"
    swagger up to their tables, then you will know
    "THE GIG IS UP , THE SECRET IS OUT , THE CASINOS KNOW"
    and for gawd sake "POOP" do yourself a favor "COME SEE ME"
    "LTWOQ" you need the money

    I think we should all chip-in, and buy DeMango a plane ticket to Mesa. Yes, let's all pledge to the "Send DeMango to Mesa" fundraiser. Let's send him first class to boot. :)

    for 4 or 5 hours buy him lunch , take him back to the airport with a guarantee

    The one you really need to work with is TDVegas, after all, he could drive down to see you and after that, he could go to the real tables to play craps!

    But let's get real he wouldn't do it because he wouldn't have anyone to try to cut down!

    TDV has said it himself , the reason he and others cut down some posters is
    "SELF PRESERVATION" , He like others on this board think the casino operators
    are too stupid to see what is going on in their casinos
    he and the other , "NAYSAYERS" seem to think they are in possession of
    "A BIG DARK SECRET"
    Little does he know , "THE GIG IS UP , THE SECRET IS OUT , THE CASINOS KNOW"

    Well, you are kind of not being accurate and taking what I said out of context....but that's ok. Let me put it in the full context....
    IF.....IF.....IF I was an AP craps player, my advice would be to clam up. Would I "cut down" someone giving away the keys?

    Not sure if I said that. I can't control others, regardless. For myself....certainly I would be like a clam.

    Bubble secrets? True bubble secrets? No. I'll buy you a beer, feed you, make sure you've got a ride back home...but secrets? No.

    slot machine secrets don't count cuzz , there ain't none
    You would be hard pressed to convince me that you are not concerned about
    certain things being , "POSTED ON AN OPEN FORUM"
    You have stated your concern too many times for me to ever believe
    that you are , "TOTALLY UNCONCERNED" by it's prospects.
    You protest and CONTRADICT way too much to be unconcerned

    So you are saying in a situation where you could help some poor schlup
    stop losing , you would let him continually be the victim of the casinos and even tho you could help , you would simply allow him to continue bleeding money?
    You wouldn't even pass a friendly , why don't you
    "LEARN TO WIN OR QUIT" ?
    Sounds pretty selfish to me
    Sounds like your motto should be
    "ONE FOR ALL AND ALL FOR ME"

    JAMES, it's an argument for those that don't understand how the bet work's! They think that they win playing by the math of the game! That is just way to funny, do any of you think that the casinos are going to tell you how to win?

    You keep repeating this statement. Are you really trying to say that those who play low house edge bets are "playing by the math of the game"....?

    and those that choose higher house edge wagers or move bets, or add bets, or change bets....are not "playing by the math of the game?

    People who play low house edge bets normally do so because of the math

    Generally people who choose higher house edge bets , change bets , add bets , play the center of the table are doing so regardless of the math
    Many play and place bets based on what the dice are giving them

    The math of the game forces many novice players into the , "WRONG GAME"

    Savvy players are able to identify problems on the fly
    and are able to , "ADAPT , ADJUST AND OVERCOME" to win

    Generally he math players just keep making the same bets , playing the same game regardless of
    what the dice are showing them
    I have seen it on this forum , "I play the 6 and 8 and all they rolled was 5 and 9 so I moved off the 6 and 8 and moved to the 5 and 9 they started throwing 6 and 8 again

    Again..the inference here is previous rolls play a roll in choosing the next bet.

    This contradicts this statement...

    No it doesn't because you don't understand the concept in it's entirety

    You guys make me laugh.

    You are so full of shit your eyes are brown.

    You are making undisciplined bets based on some voodoo that you professional DI's have access to?

    Give me a break.

    LOL

    anyone can , "MAKE A PREDICTION"
    the prediction may or may not come to pass

    Gambling is an effort to predict the future
    playing and betting at craps is betting numbers you think or hope might occur ie, predicting the future

    Like Sydney , "THE MASTER OF THE GAME" said
    "THE EASIEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO CREATE IT"

    TDVegas , It amazes me how LITTLE you know and how little there is that you understand about this game you love so much
    If you would stop contradicting and criticizing everything you disagree with or don't understand and try to understand why something somebody posts might be of value and might help you might become a better player
    and help you get off the , "WRONG GAME"
