    My Trip Report

    I did a over night trip to Belterra in southern Indiana 2.189-2/19. It was a rough visit money wise for me, but a guy at a blackjack table on the second day must have really had it bad. I was at a table next to him with my back to him. Suddenly there was this very loud banging on the table, some yelling by this guy and the dealer and pit boss getting all over him as he stomped around in the aisle. Next hand, same thing, but a bit more subdued. A few minutes later he left. If I was getting that upset over a losing streak, I would have left a long time ago.

    Yeah... the "emotional rollercoaster" anger types are tough to be around. They ruin the mood at a table for anyone in the vicinity.

    I'm sure from the Longhorn to the Wynn there is someone gambling money they can't afford to lose in almost every casino in almost every town. I prefer when they do it quietly. Loud winners never bother me as much as loud losers.

    I have a buddy like that. Slams his fist, swears loudly and grumbles to the dealer about how it's "bull****"." Some people are just like that and it's embarrassing when you know the person.

    Some do it for "fun" others do it hoping for that jackpot.
