    Huh, I really didn't expect that ruling... I would expect a settlement is in the works.

    This makes it official, James Hall. A judge has ruled that luck exists and can decide outcomes.

    "This case involves the whims of Lady Luck, who casts uncertainty on every hand, despite the house odds," Hillman wrote in his opinion. "Indeed, Lady Luck is like nectar to gamblers, because no one would otherwise play a game he knows he will always lose."

    We, all may as well stop playing in the casinos, if we win they will be able to come up with something that says we shouldn't have won but we did because we were smarter than they were and refuse to pay us! I can't wait to see the appeal on this one!

    he actually did once
    he was playing in Vegas he went to Flamingo and threw dice
    held the dice 44 minutes
    TDVegas was watching him and asked Stevie if he was a DI
    Stevie said "Whats a DI ? yeah maybe"
    TDVegas said "you want to take the bohunk challenge" ?
    Stevie said "No I gotta be on the stage in 15 minutes"
    TDVegas said yea yea al talk talk talk and no do do do"
    Stevie said , "Yeah before I go go go on I'm going to the mens room and do do do then I will PEE PEE PEE
    then do my show"
    before he left he gave TDVegas a ticket to the show
    TDVegas spent the hour selling the ticket for bubble money
    never got to use it he got hit for scalping so he had 10 days to do do do in the local pokey
    That may be a true story at least that's what I heard
    don't quote me on it

    This seems like hearsay James. Never hold up in court, but good story by an old cowboy!

    He had the dice for 44 minutes, but made only 5 rolls before the pit made him pass the dice. He was taking WAY too long to set them!

    Phil makes so much money the fair way...poker. Not sure why he would even consider going this route....and taking an accomplice with him.

    He must have known...while the cards aren't marked in the sense of someone marking them....the reality is these were, in effect, marked cards. Just not in the traditional method.

    The casino is not only going after the money he won, they are going after the EV he should have lost if he played fair. That is nuts !

    Didn't the judge dismiss that aspect saying it was too difficult to "re-engineer" how he would have played?
