    We only play slots, never table games, but I've just spent a very enjoyable half hour reading some posts which I didn't understand a word of! Whether it was craps, poker, pai gow or some other type of martial arts, I have no idea but I think someone was having trouble with " grinding down too hard ", " playing job", and " had a series of flushes", all of which I would suggest consulting a doctor about!

    Good luck with your gambling anyway!

    I love how you can say "Hit that hard eight" at the Craps table and no one thinks twice. My wife standing next to me would just let out a low moan though.

    I heard a craps stickman say "Hard Ten, Ladies best friend".

    It's the poker gang that amazes me with their lingo. It's like a foreign language.
