    wut the hell is a malidation?

    If you read my last (or previous?) TR, there was a hilarious slot ending involving our change, a dollar slot, and this fortune, so I put this little thing together with a origami book from a Cosmo Art-a-matic machine:
    I gave it to her to check out,

    Then, while I was sleeping off the first night,
    P slipped out to the Freemont for a morning coffee,
    and in less than an hour, more like half an hour....

    Here's the craps outline/notes I need to fill in:

    1) Southpoint, day 1
    felted on buyin, guy next to me was cool and told me next shooter had been doing ok at another table. Rebought, when it came to me threw a beautifully long roll, came out up, but most of it was recovering buyin.

    2) DTG, day 2
    Mr. "Here we go"
    again, brutalized at $10 min table, starting to learn to not go all in on every shooter, it's expensive but teaches me now I believe in "qualifying the shooter", ie, seeing if they can make a point, or at least keep the dice on the table >50% of the time.
    again, whole side nearly felted, group of four to my left,
    I give my mini moto speech “there’s always hope, we can come back, I just did it yesterday”. Me and his wife pso,
    this guy starts rolling, no set, hucking em good, but every time he rolls he does this optimistic sounding "here we go!".
    The roll is incredible, easily 20-30 minutes, the group, especially the mom, is pressing fearlessly.
    Me, I'm still trying to get a grip on the $10 min, and keep missing come bets, DTG dealers are great, fast with the payouts, and trying to keep reminding me to get my come bets down, but I think I am in shock that this roll is going so good and looking at all the bets on the table and keep missing them.. Here we go's wife starts reminding me too, its fun and good natured. He hits hards, we all press, we all put the dealers on it, he hits more... it is one of the most beautiful rolls I've seen, dealers are incredible.. I can tell they are all pros because after it ends and a few exploratory bets on the other side, we all color out much much much better than where we started.
    [​IMG]

    3),4),5) twice at MSS (maybe 3, both nights), second time (sun night) at GG (cut losses at $15min table Sat night at $100).

    appropriate "Here we go" (back, I named this TR that), and it works, run throws of 25, 20, 20 minutes, out throwing whole tables of two throw PSOers.

    I also appropriate the "Hard Ways!" yell a woman I was throwing with at MSS, 3 up with, this was when they said they would shut the table down in 30 minutes, and I threw for 25, talking about "I'm going to shut this table down".

    next night (Sun) Especially impressed the GG crowd, after a half decent roll, the entire table did the 3 max PSO, then I lit it up for maybe 20. Was so worked up after that I had to leave and calm down with machines.

    later that night)
    Also had a second go late at MSS and won my first two don't bets-this guy was don't betting his buddy and it was hilarious. Love the loud drunk rowdy crowd, they intercepted me on the way back to the room at 4:00 am and it was worth it.. I could tell that two of the large group knew what they were doing and one of them turns out to be a dealer at elco. We share hilarious drunken laughs and fist pounds as he Don’t Bets himself then hits the 10 point hard which I’m betting and yelling about “PUPPY PAWS”. TWICE.

    Rolls were so hot, I was able to stick to the rule of "leave after the hot roll is done", and not dump it back...

    misc crap notes:

    "Negate negative energy"

    was kind of my operating principle while rolling, got a little ticked when I called a 3:6 hop, it lands, then the dealer said he didn't hear it.
    but what good is dwelling on what is past,
    same with any player/dealer beef,
    before I throw I try to make sure it is semi-calmed,
    and I'll throw in a few "It's all good, no worries, or It's all love" before the "here we go".

    I'm also not betting on or leaving the table when someone is raging on tilt or can't land the dice on the table half the time.

    I've been usually trying to dealer bet my way out of salty dealers, but I am going to choke this back, especially the ones with bad attitudes.
    at both MSS and GG, the best dealers next to the not so best is like night and day.
    I also need to stay out of the middle to cut HA down, at least on shooters I don't know.
    I still do have a lot of fun on come out with $5 "all the hard ways working and big red"

    ah, craps :kiss:

    Great report.

    I found the dealers at DTG to be good BUT one bald headed box man was a total DICK.

    Love downtown for craps. I like getting to the tables around 6am when their not crowded.

    Today I'm thankful for:
    A return with more than we came with.
    Family in decent health.

    We broke through!
    didn't know they could respond so fast, came home monday,
    today (yesterday?) in the mail got the elusive room offers from South Point and DTG (sun-thur). Elco, too.

    If we do a little more next trip (maybe I'll double table play), we could just possibly make Emerald.
    (If we didn't have to cancel a few trips it would probably be done)
    Not many benefits, but IIRC, could tier match to CET then not pay resort fees and check out some of those room offers.

    A rare hot run where I was quite drunkenly talking to the slot and it cooperated,
    usually the $lut$ hate me being anywhere around them,
    then the second I leave, P hits a fatty.

    We exploit it now, because it's hilarious, and it probably worked 5 times this trip

    but this one I stuck around....

    "I was doing VERY drunk motivational speeches, "you can do it feller, I know you gotta do your job and drop blanks on us, but I believe in you."
    as utterly ridiculous as yelling at dice.. :goofy: :drunk:

    This might have been 10 minutes or less, and after I had done the same shtick at our Cal FP conversion that went well.

    IIRC, $20 in:

    I could be wrong, but the times I've "whispered" to slots or VP, it hasn't helped me.

    if you keep trying, it will have to work some time (?) :kill:

    no seriously, we have a routine where I watch, she hits nothing, I say, "I hate slots, I'm leaving, good luck", then about 10 paces away I hear the machine go off, and come back to watch.
    We did this like three times at DTG a few trips ago, and it's the money move.. I know, I know, random, but slots know I hate them and they usually hate me. She has a way with them.

    (also you can't believe if you aren't drunk enough)
    [and if nothing else I'm entertaining myself, and possibly her]


    Wait what, breaking news, gamblers can be superstitious?!

    But hey, I know nothing, I’m not a slot queen, I take no credit, I'm not the one pushing the button just right.

    IDK, was this a sick $20 flip after the dtg FP conversion? I think I did the "I'm leaving trick" on this one.

    FP 2: $50 Cal conversion, when I first started giving drunk slot motivational speeches.

    funny
    Me: "Come on, put it together, I know you can do it!"
    P, looking annoyed: "are you talking to me?"
    me: "No, I'm talking to the machine"
    machine:

    we did lose our $5 D FP (five spins $1 min bet 3 reel HL green machine),
    and I donked off the $50 GG FP on HL (multiplay?) VP,
    so... yeah, random.
    maths, its just cold heartless RNGs.

    They are getting rare and hard to find, that one was at the Cal (?), mixed in to a bank near the front of the players club.
    or actually, it may have been at MSS, IIRC, there was a empty spot next to it where another slot had been yanked out, and it was by the blazing 777s bank.
