Is it me?
  • Hi all-
    Is it me or has this board become somewhat boring since Grifter resigned as Moderator? What was that guys name who got banned(Alex?) Maybe we should ask him to come back and at least liven up this board!
    Best of luck to all-

  • Go ahead, Progressionists. Why don't you start a controversy! I do have question: On E-bay, I saw the book "Beyond Counting" listed by a seller at
    $750.00. Is it really that much in demand? Do you have a copy? I was hoping to pick it up for around $12. I also saw that the price of "A Counter's Guide to Casino Surveillance" had dropped about 50%. But I am not interested in that one.
  • i sure don't know what the correct price should be,sorry.
    now,how do we start some controversy? get the board riled up? ya' got me chex-i wish i could be more helpful but right now i can't think of a thing!
    best of luck-

    Dude why are you looking for excitement on a blackjack message board? And as much as I thought Grifter was cool what kind of excitement did he bring to the board? Its not like he was telling jokes everyday. And from what I read he pretty much tried to stay neutral in posters arguments, just offering sound advice from time to time. Man the only bored people are boring people.
    If you got some cutting edge news or style of play bring it on, if not than your even worse than boring, you're a boring complainer. I say there doesn't seem to be as many posts lately, but the ones I read seem pretty cool.
    Like don't you think its kinda cool that stainless steel rat is trying to tell Bojack how to shuffletrack, and it seems he's starting to piss him off. I've been tuning in to that for days now waiting for someone to tell the other to piss off. I dont know what else you'd be looking for, maybe you should click on some of the porn spam thats been popping up lately.
  • Let me getting something straight here. I am in no way upset or at odds with Stainless Steel Rat. On the contrary, I respect his opinion, and I feel he has a lot to offer to these discussions. Maybe our opinions on this matter just went over your head Andee. Or maybe you're just trying to liven up the board. At any rate Andee, play nice.

    Where exactly did I try to tell Bojack how to track? We were discussing some details and we didn't agree on how strips affect the ability to track. So what?

    I have a great deal of respect for anyone that does this stuff with any degree of expertise, and he seems to do just that.

    Perhaps you try to read way too much into things you didn't write??? If you don't discuss, you don't learn. I look for new information each and every day myself...

    The thread did drift away from the original post I made about why an ace gives you a 51% advantage, but such drifting is fairly common. Certainly never saw anything either he or I posted that was confrontational. He pointed out something I had not really intended to imply, and it was perfectly ok (the fact there is a difference in tracking slugs, vs a single card) where I was just lumping all that together in talking about how important an ace is when dealt to a player.)

    So if you were expecting some sort of confrontation from my corner, you will probably be waiting a long time. I suspect the same is true of Bojack, IMHO...
  • Yea, what's the big deal? I view the dialog between Bojack and SSR as informative and interesting. In fact, I don't remember the subject being discussed much before in this forum, and I learned some things. BTW, I will be playing in Louisiana in two weeks, with very good conditions. I have had a 10 month break from BJ. Already pumped about going.
  • I've followed the discussion with great interest.Hope it continues.
    On your other point,Beyond Counting is greatly sought after.I've never read it but it seems like a grail book to several people I know that know a heck of a lot more about BJ than I do.

    I believe JG is going to have a new edition out soon, if it isn't already out... I think there is a beyondcounting web site with details, although if I am wrong, I'll take credit for bad memory. :)
  • you've been waiting DAYS to see if one tells the other to "piss off"......
    YO DUDE,NOW YOU'VE GOT AN EXCITING LIFE GOING ON THERE!!!!!!!
    WHOA!
  • I think Andee is SO involved in the above mentioned porn sites that he can't get the story straight.............or much else i suspect!
  • Alright Progressionist I've got a question for you. Why the hell do you post as Paganguy too. I thought it was too much of a coincidence that there was two dim light bulbs out there that spelled their name in all capital letters, but never the "i" in any sentence. You even signed off on one of Paganguys posts with your typical, best of luck prog. Check out casino got shot up thread, thats where it is. You dumbass. Don't ever insult me dude, as Progressionist or Paganguy. And you really should seek help for that whole split personality thing.
  • Dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You're Tripping Out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    We're Gonna Have To Thump On Your Chest If U Get Any More Out Of Control!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11


    Dude
  • Like Fred Renzey Tried To Inform You On 3-21-06

    "it's A Big World Out There"


    Yo Dude!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Andees Seeing Double!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Yo
    Dude!!
  • I must say your last couple of posts really added something to the board Progressionist/Paganguy. The only thing I can tell that you know or learned about blackjack is how to suck Fred Renzeys ass fumes since your nose is so far up there. I don't care how long you've been on this forum, you're nothing but a yes man (although as of late man might not be the right word for you) with no original ideas of your own. By the way ya little geek you never answered the question why the 2 different names you post as. Maybe your mommy didn't give you enough attention and you figure you can get twice as much being 2 people. You're a joke.

    The book is out of print that is why it has such a high price.
  • just has to slow down on the caffeine is all.
  • Andee with the two cutesy e's on the end-bet you've got a sister named Trisha.
  • I have no idea what the hell that last post meant you lonely little freak, but I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person. So keep on with the baby crap, but from here on in its like your sex life, you'll be doing it alone.
  • I apologize if I got you upset Andee,I truly had no intention of doing so! I'm pretty much a Libertarian by nature and think people should do what makes them happy. I'm NOT a mental health professional by any means. I'd just like to simply suggest that if you have visions of two men (or a man and a woman for that matter) sucking each others' asses you might want to seek professional help. Like I said I'm a libertarian and to each his own,REALLY.
    I'm not being judgemental at all-but please just consider possibly at least getting professional assistance, it's nothing to be ashamed of. Take care and best of luck to you.
    Best Regards,
    Prog

    P.S. Do you have a sister named Trisha? Seriously.
  • Progressionist/Pagunguy,
    Its funny you should bring up mental health issues, as I'm quite sure split personalities falls under the need for mental and emotional assistance. The fact that you're writing posts as one person and answering them as another leads me to believe not only are you hearing voices in your head, you're answering them. As for upsetting me, its quite the opposite, you're such an easy target its fun watching you freak out, Mr. 1000 exclamation points. I hope the 2 of you have a wonderful time inside your empty head.
  • ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
  • Geeeeezzzzzzlouezzzzzzzz,
    Would you two get a room already.
  • Is it time yet to all join hands and sing kumbaya ma lord?:confused:
  • Progressionist said it's over.
  • so i always split aces and eights??
  • I believe this thread has become unraveled. Is there a moderator out there?
  • Maybe a group hug is in order? :)
  • I think they should settle/continue this in the ring, so to speak.
    All contestants on the same blackjack table.
    All three...I mean both of you can meet this week in Biloxi.
    Let them put it on the table for all to see.
    I'll be there ....mediate/or sit between....lol....
    This would be really fun, and some people may even pay for good seats.

    Most of us would stand to learn a great deal from this, seriously!

    Maybe all (two/three) of you can agree, and we can move on.

    Any of you guys live close enough for this to really happen?

Howdy, Stranger!
