    Mission Impossible speaks well of my own experiences with slots. Hard to believe, but I have never lost a coin or a bill on the game. Wish I could say the same of craps.........

    He's never played them. Hence, no loss.:).

    I'm actually lifetime ahead on slots but it was entirely due to luck and I rarely play slots anymore. After a really good session of Blackjack or Craps I'd sometimes put a hundred or two through a high demon slot. Got lucky once on a $25 machine and once on a $5 machine. Call it my own version of the triple hardway parlay.

    The only difference is I know it was just dumb luck and have no delusions that it's a valid way to play to win. I quit while I was ahead.

    Ditto that for my lifetime play of craps, with emphasis on luck.

    Two of my 3 biggest winning sessions happened the same week in May 2009, with another winner in excess of 2500 about a month later.

    As far as I recall, no skill involved with any of these nice sessions.

    Does walking away a winner, mean you were skillful or not skillful ?..........I would think it signifies you do something good. Probably a good thing to recognize and hone and keep in your playbook.

    For a second I thought that old SOB Scoblete was still posting here. Think AssHall X 100 in bad publicity.

    Something to consider.
    Just as with the lottery, where a no-win means the pot increases...such is that which occurs each time you lose. Dat win - the one with your name on it, improves, evolves, & expands with greater detail - from each loss.

    That's why, contrary to popular belief, there is very little actionable skill necessary in winning. It's either there, or it's not & when it is, you ride the wave. But there's no crying between waves, bkz the good waves keep coming when your energy is - calm, confident, & sure. Frustration brings the disappointment waves. Thus, receptivity to what you want is the key to a wave rendezvous you desire.

    Therefore, all of that effort in practicing that pretty shot, would be better utilized focusing inward, in creating the atmosphere that attracts the wave you want. Even the slightest bit of anxiety will trip you up faster than trying to pass a crowd of weight watchers near a Krispy Cream counter. When you consider that the outcome you seek was created long before you bellied up to the rail, by virtue of your prior loss(s), all that's required is lining up with what you've created. And your success comes easily & fun, like you knew it would.

    Crazy or brilliant? Put that aside for the moment if you can, bkz the undeniable benefit to this thought process, is you never take your failures so hard. A good thing indeed. Making peace with your loss(s) brings those sweet wins a hell of a lot quicker. And when it happens in the same session, well, you don't even notice it. We call that the dipsy-do & when you've got a handle on the rhythm of "dips" you can look forward to the "dos" while you 2 step, all the way to the bank.

    Every good surfer knows how to feel for the exhilarating wave they love to ride & they know it all starts with a gathering of energy in the opposite direction. You cannot deny physics. Well you can, but you suffer. Your intuition knows that opposites are not opposed. It's how the universe is set up & who are we to argue. Thus, never fear those losses, bkz the pot is sweetened every time & awaits your next brilliant opportunity.
    So you see, you never lose...even when you lose.

    Seems you've fallen for all the scams. And you also sound a little bit too much like MsPee.:cool:
    Thought your claim was net positive? Doc. :oops: :)
