People should be free to post what they want, as long as they aren't giving bad advice on how to play a casino game.
Why couldn't you have just ended your post this way? Why call me names? You haven't posted here in months and all of a sudden you are a posting whirling dirvish. Don't post about committing a crime without first thinking about the type of responses that may come in response.

If a person didn't see the humor in what I wrote (one tip off should have been when I wrote of the sting operation under the direction of George Roy Hill, George Roy Hill directed "The Sting" in 1973 that starred Paul Newman and Robert Redford).

Anyway: welcome back billryan, Bisbee nightlife slowing down at the end of summer? Oh, slow internet again? Get your dish a little higher on that saguaro....

Being a Good American and a card carrying member of AARP, I had no choice but to report FAA's possibly improper use of a senior fare jitney ride to the proper authorities. An amicus curiae complaint was filed for the dolus specialus committed by FAA ex facie after his admitting the nature of the fact.

I was assured that members of the AARP Special Investigations Division working in conjunction with officers from the New Jersey Gaming Commission office located on Pennsylvania Avenue will be performing a sting operation, under direction of George Roy Hill, in the not too distant future.

I was assured that any results of this operation may be presented to Congress and they may decide to empanel a special grand jury.

Why be a dick? I realize it comes naturally but most adults can filter themselves.
Did you actually write this without thinking of yourself first?

Lesson learned: avoid busy peak afternoon hours with full jitneys bypassing hapless tourists stranded at stops. I will be leaving by noon for Borgata. Newly installed awkwardly high Caesars chairs effectively quash any desire to hang around. Quit and hit the jit.

I actually like the new chairs at Caesars. You can move them where you want and your back doesn't get sore from constantly having to lean forward because the seat backs were all bent or pulling yourself up from sliding back on the old attached ones.
I'm sure you saw Bally's removed the good VP games to make the Lightning Links corner. I looked around while I was there briefly and doesn't look like they moved them anywhere else. Just gone. Took some out of High limit too.

The new Caesars chairs give welcome independence, but are just too high for me. I should take a photo next time to gauge my eye level view. It’s basically the title panel above the screen. A suit who I vented to in HL room said that they have received a lot of complaints. Bally’s game removal is bad news. I’ve only returned for the sports book and new restaurants. I’ll have to see what’s become of my old stomping grounds. No point in actually patronizing the casino, it seems. The clientele IMO really was the worst in town as well.

I do agree they are a bit too tall.
As for Bally's it seems the money is making it look a lot better but play and service has taken a nose dive. I don't like the wall they put up along the tables between the sports book and cashier. Too cramped fighting against traffic. I think it is just temporary though. Gonna miss Harry's and Bucca also. The new pizza place sucks in my opinion. Way overpriced and blah pizza.

Harry's and Buca seemed to define the Bally's property. But like the musical restaurant game at Borgata and elsewhere, this is the accepted pattern. I've heard complaints about the pizza place too. The sports book is a bit sedate on Sunday. Reservation and $50 minimum for the only seats worth having. Definitely a calmer atmosphere than the Resorts animal house.

Glad I'm not a sports fan. Some day I'll get back to the Borgata. As I've mentioned in the past my ex-girlfriend (She is now my wife as of last Memorial Day) prefers to stay on the boardwalk. Gonna have to take a solo trip sometime.

I am relatively new but even so I am amazed sometimes at how far from video poker the comments stray.
