Back in the Saddle again.

Well hola my freaky deaky darlings. I am back again from vacation, alive and bitching haha. I actually have not an interesting thing to report. No stories, no long whinded explanations. Just me lol.

Atlantic City was a blast, kind of. I ended up playing my favorite game of Roulette most of the time, and losing all the money I took with me doing it hahaha. But I always take what I can afford to lose and never more than that. It was interesting though playing on the tables that I was on. They were more expensive minimum bets, which kept the crowds down. Major bonus. However, while the dude was making his meagor minimum plays, I was surrounded by all the high rollers. And another interesting thing, almost all of the time I was the only one whose main language was English.

I actually enjoyed that, I got a little chatty with one representative from just about every race, culture, and language. Very cool experience. The two wild things that I did see involved the high rollers. One, a tall thin Asian man who looked just like the actor Chow Yun Fat(no it wasnt him, and no i didnt ask to find out either). While dasher was making the minimum bets using $5 chips, Mr. Fat look-alike was using $25 chips and playing with at the least $500 across the table at one time. And on one roll he had more than $50 on lets say red 7. The fucking number hit!

Now if you are not familiar with roulette, all that I can say is that playing money on the exact numbers is VERY high odds. And if it hits, man do you get a payoff. I hit playing the combination of the color red and odd nuber. But those arent high odds. So while I smile pulling back $60, Mr. Fat pulls back over $3,000 easy! I nearly shit my self,
"Waitress, another mixer please."

But, the moral of the story, if you dont quit while you are ahead, the house always gets its money back. Mr. Fat, in about 45min of play, lost back that $3,000 and the rest of his own money on the table. He let out a loud "Whooot!" which he did often, pulled out his wallet, and counted out $1000 in cash,
"More chips please, whoooot!"
He didnt even break a swet. I swear the thought of it just made my asshole bunge up! The next amazing one was the middle eastern gentleman who only bet on even, thats it. Every roll, even. And at one point he put $8,000 on even. And yep you guessed it, the ball rolled into the 32 spot and did a last minute bounce out of it and into the 9 instead. Tough luck. And off he the cash machine to get more money to bet evens on.

One major bonus for the trip, I got a $300 dollar a night room with a Killer view, for $16. Overlooked the entire city from the 43rd floor of (cant say the name on the site, lets just say he was a famous roman emperor.). At night I would open the blinds and turn out all of the lights. The entire room would get this amazing neon glow from the buildings, casinos, and city streets. Very cool indeed.

Me? I was on an emotional roller coaster on the tables. I went from my meagor sum of money down to $20 at one point and rallied back up to $200 and quit. I came back hours later to lose all of that and once again rally from pennies back to $150 and pulled. My final trip to the tables, they got it all. So instead of clearing my bank account to try and win it back(yeah right!) I went over to the bar, asked my man Aran for a few mixers to go. Went back to my room, sat infront of the window facing the city, talked to an oh so familiar and soothing voice, and drank and laughed staring at the neon lights.

Welcome back, missed your postings....

Went gambling myself the 1st time in Cherokee at the Black Jack tables in November, minimum bet 15 bucks...most people playing with at least a couple of hundred...every table seemed to have at least a couple of people with several hundred bucks on the table but no really wild players like those you mentioned...most of them seemed to be tourists...some Yankees (no offense) and some obvious regulars wearing diamond rings...made me think of the Kenny Rogers song...

Friend of mine pooled our money and played as a team...fortunate enough to start with a couple of hundred and walk out with over a thousand, don't know if I could repeat that...discovered dealer Black Jack has a bit more strategy than I expected...which is a good thing when you are gambling if you use it...roulette...I dunno about that...glad you had fun though!!

Thought you said you didn't have any story to write! This was great... but the story aside, this "report" shows a maturity that is often lacking in guys even older than you. And so what if you didn't rake in the cash... you walked out a winner nonetheless: you had a good time, you met some interesting people, and you left with a renewed sense of purpose for yourself. Yup. That makes you a far bigger winner that most, in any game!

curious- now i wonder how you knew about the bath mat? hhmmmmmm.

corezon- glad to be back, missed my freaky darlings. and yes, major strategy to black jack, found that out last year watching a friend play it.

Lil- ah thank you thank you

AnEnigma- Hello hello, and yes I guess I did have a story of sorts there. As always, your insight carries true wisdom. You are correct, I didnt walk away empty handed. And I had a great time, relaxed, and took in some human sights to see.
