Bad advice that sounds good

11 July 2017
I am guessing that all casino players have some kind of philosophy of play. If they are blackjack players, they either play basic strategy (the computer-derived play of every player hand against every dealer up card), or a kind of basic strategy which they have mashed together with their own ideas, or some truly inventive, creative but ridiculous strategy that is, well, totally stupid. ...

Nostalgia

4 July 2017
I remember those old timers when I was a young timer waxing poetic about their youth, their days during the great Depression, in World War II, and how they raised their families, worked hard and believed in the American dream. Most pursued that dream and were by and large successful. That “greatest generation” is just about gone. ... (read more)
 

What would you do?

27 June 2017
Albert Einstein discovered the most revolutionary truths by just thinking about the world. He called these thoughts “mind experiments.” We do mind experiments too, although not at Einstein’s level. For example, in certain college ethics courses you are asked questions about what you would do in this or that situation. ... (read more)
 

Avengers assemble

20 June 2017
I am sitting at a slot machine lazily hitting the credits/spin button, not particularly paying attention, not even hearing the muted echo of today’s simulated sounds of coins and music. This is routine slots play. I am almost not thinking, being lost in some altered state of consciousness; which isn’t necessarily a bad thing in this exciting and exacting world in which we all live. ... (read more)
 

Your not-so-quiet time

13 June 2017
The world-famous totally bald monk Swami Ylurt Enasni heads for his cave high in the Himalayan Mountains. He finds his favorite spot in his special place, his very own special place in his special beloved cave, where he assumes the lotus position and begins his slow and steady meditation to his very own personal mantra – an inner sound that takes him elsewhere. ...

Some things I don't know

6 June 2017
I am not a genius, although some people (including myself) think so. They base this on the fact that I have good knowledge about casino games and have invented, borrowed and learned what I consider to be the best methods of playing various games. But even when it comes to gambling and casinos and casino players and dealers, I am not the be-all and end-all of knowledge. ... (read more)
 

Your money or your life

30 May 2017
In the Jack Benny Show of the 1950s and early 1960s, a sketch is performed where Benny is being mugged by a gunman. If you don’t know the brilliant Benny, he portrayed himself as a cheap man, a skinflint, whose love of money knew few bounds. The mugger is holding a gun to Benny’s head. “Mister, I’m telling you, your money or your life!” Benny pauses. ... (read more)
 

The hole

23 May 2017
There are some days and nights, I mean, there are just some days and nights when nothing goes right and the things that go wrong go awfully wrong. I am sure that those of you who are avid casino gamblers have experienced those days and/or nights of horror. I know I have. You begin in a hole, and you end in a deeper hole. ... (read more)
 

When play is work

16 May 2017
I’ve heard them and I am sure you have heard them; in fact, just about everyone I know has heard them. Their famous quote is this: “I need a vacation from my vacation!” Even a singular one-day trip to the casino can elicit some such statement as “Oh, brother, I am beat” or “What an exhausting day I had!” I ...
