    It seems crazy to me sometimes how streaky gambling can be. I never have a session of blackjack where I win one hand and lose the next and break even in the end, like one might imagine occurring on a 50/50ish game.

    Case in point, yesterday I stop by the Rivers with my buddies (after vowing off gambling until May 29th trip). Of course I go down the shitter right from the bat. $1,000 buy-in gone on VP. POS debit another $1,000 and try 3-card---same crap.

    Down to $300 and I haven't been there an hour. Buddies with similar luck bail out.

    Then I decide to go-for-broke and hit a straight with $100 pairs plus bet to get most of my 3-card losses back and decide to stop by VP again. Sure enough, two sets of Quad Aces in 5 minutes and I'm leaving with $2,800 for an $800 net profit. $2,500 turn around in 15 minutes time.

    Man I'm really ready for that session where I win every other hand and break even! :evillaugh

    Nice hits!! And people tell you never chase losses..:clap:
    Were the quads on the same machine ?
    Reason I ask is that me and buddy are trying to test his theory that if a macine is 'hot' it will stay hot for awhile so bump up the denom and see what happens..

    That makes me feel better...I'm not the only one who has done a POS Debit when on TILT.
