gambling for a living
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:01:33 PM »
the other day I went to a card room I use to frequent...sup risingly, some regulars there still remembers me....sat down on one poker table...i can tell some of the guys there didn't like me...they call me a runner...haha someone that wins, and then doesn't show up for a long time...so i can tell these guys wanted to take away my chips...i let them win...after kicking their asses just like the last time we met...hahah but i felt sorry for them...so i let them win, and gave all the money I ever took from them back to them....and we became friends again...sort of...told them, no more poker for me....i can't accept poker money...i accept house money, but not other people's money..haha

later I went to the indian casino...lots of people were hitting blanks on the slot machines I consider my favorite slots in that casino...I knew then...if I waited a few hours, those slots might just be in the mood to pay out...I went to mess around with some penny slots here and there....when I was ready to leave, I went to my favorite slot machines...and just two other people playing now...i saw that the machines were a little more friendlier now by the small winnings these two other folks were hitting...I chose the one next to one of them...and within 10 spins, I already hit a nice 500 bucks jackpot...haha h

apparently, I gave both of them the winnings..spli t it up evenly...I didn't tell them or care what they do with it...I wanted to say, if they keep playing, they should win more...but I didn't...hahah

I left the casino, and never look back...

I always wanted to gamble for a living...and I did...for many years...but It's just not for me...it never was...it only was because I was broke then...but not anymore....Onl y cost me about 50k to learn all the ins and outs of professional gambling...lol s but no worries...I won significantly more than that...so i'll donate what ever is left...when I die...hahaha

I don't condone gambling folks...not because it's bad...but because I know, 99% of folks will not be successful at it... 8)

Wait, so you play slots and win and that makes you a professional gambler?

see, the casino wants you to think its all luck...but there are actually secrets and reasonings to any game out there...if you don't know the secrets..do not play...that's all I can say...hahaha

people have offer me millions...I decline it all...said it's nothing personal...wel l maybe it is...because it is my own blood, sweat, and tears...wait no, no tears...hahaha

A friend does it for a living as a hobby.  He got a regular job but after his shift is over, brings 10g to a local card room to try his luck at the 50% chance winning baccarat game. 

He uses the martingale system but it is a fallacy to use that system.   

So his goal is to win just $300 a day.  He picks his spots.  Put $300 on red, if win, he met goal and he's done for the day.  If loses, he doesn't play the next hand but wait till his spots come up again.  Next bet is $600. 

Only takes one win n he will be in the same $300 up category for the day.  With a high bankroll of 10g, he got a few hands to win one hand before losing that 10g.

$300 a day times 365 days a year and we are talking about serious income right here.  109g tax free

To be an effective Gambler, one must have a strict system. 
Lose less but win more is the only way to profit.  Lean all the fallacies like never chase a lost and learn when to bet high when you are hot and bet low when you are not and most importantly, learn how to walk away ahead. 

I'm not a gambler I do not think.  I'm a gambling stragetic guru.  Like to beat the house, you take what they can offer you like comps and you bank on it. 

Like this month of December, cache Creek casino is offering me free hotel stay, 150 bux to freely pull the slots, free shows and I think I have about $100 worth of dining credits to my name. 

Now to get to this level, the casino thinks that you are a Gambler cuz they track your movements with coin in on your card.  My azz got drunk that one weekend and when I get drunk, I do weird things like walking around and seeing a nice person playing Max bet in the high roller room but do not uses their player's card.  They are usually non locals cuz if you are in town for business, why make a card for you know?  So insert my cards so the casino thinks that I'm losing my azz off thus why all them perks are coming to me. 

Casino wants to see you coming back if you loses or win.  They want a known loser to support their businesses and winners to give them a chance of getting their money back.  The science is that the longer you are at the casino and playing, the house has so much money that it will beat you. 

I go to casino if they can at least give me my free room.  I have free rooms in all sorts of casino and the Reno one can give me a whole month there.   GSR in Reno, if free comp room, they no charge resort fees which is stupid high.  Like free room at Harrah's properties for me with a $0 total but the resort fee is like $23.   Still a big discount considering a weekend room goes for over $100 but still, unless I have to but still, why stay there when gsr is a few blocks away?

The casino life, i can literally write a book about it.  I can cover all aspects of it cuz i studied it's operations from catering to security crew to pit boss to underground illegal drugs dealing to prostitution to loan sharks to mafia influences to casino hoes and what not. 

It's an industry I'm not proud of but I do know what's up.

some of the most crazy people I ever met, were people who totally lost it all, not just their money, but their minds at the casino...haha I since stopped going at night time...unless I am going with a group of buddies that I know will take a bullet for me..haha lols

seen  a lot...seen dealers get handcuffed, seen folks lose thousands in minutes, and then seen folks who also won thousands in minutes...and then only to lose it all back in minutes...

I liked going weekdays during the afternoon, then sprint home right before the evening traffic hits..hahaha plus it'ls less likely I'll see or someone will see me that knows me...during that time..lols

only way you'll beat the casino, is at it's own game....long term winning...your only advantage is, you can choose when to play and when not to....when you play, the casino plays...only time is if you win too much, they might harass you and get you to leave...ahaha

got security following me one time...hawking me....seen it happen to others too...

cache creeke probably don't know my face...but thunder valley, they only let me play slots...no tables...cuz they know I'll kill the tables...hahah a cache creek, i like the atmosphere there better...but the drive there is too nolstagic for me...hahah i once lost a pretty good amount once at cache creek, and the drive back home was pretty harsh..haha so only go to cache, once or twice a year, esp, when a friend from out of town is over...that's about it..

you obviously don't realize how difficult it is to be a pro slot player.  For example, you only play a certain type of slots and have to calculate the odds to be in your favor before you sit down at it.  You have to also be very patient and walk around till you find the slot that is about to pay and you have to know which one that is, not guess at it.  I've seen some pro slot players, I've seen what they do and which machines they hit on only.  At the end of the day, it's not like you're just gonna go in, win $5K and be done for the day each day.

no math involved with how I do it man...lols it's all pure intuitions and great instincts...i can go into a lot of more details...but it'll be a novel....but for now....just know that the house controls the tightness and looseness of these machines....an d you have to know which houses are stingy and which ones are giving...it's all fishing baby...you just gotta sense and feel when it bites....some basic knowledge how things works...and a lot of patience, but more importantly, time...because it's not a few hour fishing trip...sometim es its lasts overnight...or even couple nights...

there is just too many variables involve....I don't think you can calculate the odds, and "know for sure" which machine is going to hit....so that is, I agree, extremely difficult if impossible...w ith any kind of gambling, it's only probability, and never a sure guarantee..jus t like in card counting in BJ, it wasn't a dead accurate method, but more of a probability method, giving you a advantage.....

but yup...for me....it's all will power and discipline...s omething I have ran out of...so therefore I am retire from the houses...hahah

Actually, with certain machines, you can.  Those are the ones that pro slot players eyeball all the time.

mann, that is interesting then...we're not talking about video poker are we? lols..most slots have a random number generator...th at makes it very hard to calculate...sl ots are not like lottery scratchers where they guarantee a win/lose ratio. slots, at least, from my research and from what a lot experts tells, casino's only can keep 1-4% of the money put into them and has to pay out the rest. and the house decides win it wants to pay out...so they send out the tech guy to turn the switch from hard, intermediate, to easy...hahah In my theory though, I think a lot of today's modern slots probably has a automatic switch for that though...seen slots go from cold to hot, and hot to cold, or stay neuatral for a very long time, without any one of those slot doctors come operate on them..lols


i'll still play slots on a raining day though...i just don't have the time and patience, and more importantly the hunger anymore for it....it's true, your first jackpot, you're frickin ecstatic...aft er a while...you realize..fook, i'm not playing for money, Im playing for the "high"....lols and that's what so dangerous about it....but i think the "high" eventually dies down...and when it does...it's a good thing...

no, not video poker.  There are some machines that you need to look for. These are certain progressive machines.  O0

i don't specialize in slots...but i just tend to be pretty good at reading them and like anything, I study it until i find what tends to work for me...if I play the slots and not winning...I wait like a few hours...I go play some card games...or other slots for fun...then I come back and play the same slots...usuall y it's just timing...haha now is a bad time to play slots...too many people, and therefore too many pay outs are being given out throughtout the day or nights...so it's hard to tell what the slots are like for the day, week, etc.....you want to go right after the holidays, when it dies down..when people spent too much money on gifts and have none left to gamble..haha.a nd the slots are full of money to give away... 8) Always play when it is very slow...that's my number one tip to play slots...and oh yeah, i don't know really what progressive slots are...haha but i do know that the more popular slots are more likely to give you better odds...slots that nobody or hardly anyone plays...it doesn't have much money to give out...haha 8)

and yes...max bet...2 bucks and up, it will give you a significant odds advantage...50 cents and down, is pretty much what some people call pity entertainment. ..waste of time and money...as they say, go big or go home...haha personally, i like to switch demonitions back and forth...someti mes it works...it confuses the machine...haha just a theory....or sometimes it wants to pay out, but if doesn't like your denomonition.. ..so if one denomination doesn't work, another one usually can do the trick.

That mentality will cost you a lot of money in the long run. Come back in a year or two and let me know if I'm wrong.
