OAP’s former playground and workplace,
I really liked that casino and played there every time I've gone to Vegas. Is not opulent but I liked the 'feel' of it.
People should learn how important that is to winning
Opulent? That's cute.
duck.....Ye shall know them by their words........It has become obvious by what you have written, that your positions, your ideas on matters, your thoughts, are kafkaesque.
It funny you would say that....
In my book, chapter 13...."The Commandments".... It starts with a quote ( as all chapters do)........." The urge to gamble is so universal and its practice so pleasurable, that I assume it must be evil".......later on I write:..." To get into heaven God only gave you 10 commandments. To win at craps you have to obey 25......does this mean it is harder to win at craps then to get into haven?.....probably. I do know if you follow these commmandments you will be considered a "tough player" and have the best chance of leaving the table a winner.
Your comment kinda falls in line with commandment # 21 ..." Play at casinos where you have the most success.".......Frequently, if you are comfortable in a certain casnio or at a table you will do well........comfortable....good 'feel'.........winning.......all seem to go hand in hand........not much conventional math involved here......maybe it's a higher math.
Kafkaesque is commonly misunderstood and misused, but I think it does describe the duck quite accurately if one understands it’s meaning.
This article has a great description of kafkaesque,
SPOT ON and very good advice for us all
Comfortable + good 'feel' + winning = "POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE" = WINNING
A vicious cycle
That's the HIGHER / RIGHT math
I LOVE IT
SPOT ON and very good advice for us all
"POSITIVE MENTAL ATTITUDE"
nix that idea 777, James might be highly successful at craps, but to classify him as a "Tough" player will have BTL rolling over in his grave. James is after all a place bettor and a hard-ways sort of guy.

You do have a point . As far as my understanding of ,
"TOUGH PLAYER" I would not fit that description at all
Unless I am badly mistaken , a tough player
is very conservative in his approach to the game
at least that is my impression based on BTL's
description of himself as a , "TOUGH PLAYER"
I don't want to get anybody mad at me........I try so hard.......777
Kafkaesque? I'll bet you've been waiting a while to work that word into a post. Do you really think I could be a "Great Writer"? Or are you saying that I think like a Czech?
He certainly is this forum's worst nightmare.
I doubt if Kafka has ever posted on this forum Ma'am, I think he died back in the 1920s, but I'm sure he would have appreciated the compliment Ma'am.
While I don't normally care which direction a thread takes or where it goes....I created this thread to alert members to JB's death and maybe some would post remembrances, thoughts or otherwise.
Pissing matches wasn't the intent....at least on this thread.
I almost forgot, OAP was part of the great NM Craps caper,
Haven't been here in a while but the post jumped right at me when I logged in.
Very sad to hear the news, always hoped I'd get a chance to shoot the dice and sip a bourbon with him....
From the little I knew of him I think he lived his life his own way and to the fullest.
raise a glass... save me a spot stick right
thank you to those who kept in touch with him and us informed.
I KNEW I'd left something behind that session. Harrah's wasn't it?
Ya got it. I see my spot, SO-R , is open as well. Hope those dweebs at the other end are too busy flexing to get their hands in the way; my power roll isn't what it used to be. Maybe that dealer on my side will give me some tips on technique.
