Extremely Lucky. I should quit for the year now!

The lighter side... playing for entertainment, less concerned about "the math."

12 positive sessions in a row but I also had near perfect discipline.

Harkening back to the good Olds days! How was the session yesterday?

I should have quit for the year. However, had an ecxellent Mother’s Day dinner with the Mrs. and their best room in the place on the house. She also did great playing. She is forwarding me the pic from her phone and I will post in a minute. I was ahead a bit on JOB. It went into an unbelievable but believable because it is video poker downward spiral and busted my Martingale Clone budget. Unfortunately it makes sense in the video poker world that if I had 12 consecutive positive sessions, I might have 12 or more consecutive negative sessions as well

Here is the Mrs. really nice hit on nickel DDB Ultimate X. The usual bad table, but she seems over time to do well with it. 8/5. So She held one card and hit the royal with a 2X multiplier. Put a little icing on the cake of her really nice Mother’s Day.

Well, that’s unlucky seven after all. My Play Delay strategy worked wonders. I am eager to repeat it at a higher denomination. All I need is ten minutes.

Our play delay was too long I guess between dinner and checking in it was like 2 hours. Worked for the Mrs though. In hindsight, I guess it worked for me too. I had 3 quads on JOB with 5 quarters bet in the first half hour before the downward spiral began. I was ahead about 60 bucks. When it took it back snd I was even I should have walked, chilled with an Amstel light and watched the news in the room for a few minutes rthen tried again on a different machine in another part of the casino. Next trip which the way it looks now will be tonight, it will be a Starbucks on arrival, then what I call my nut job method. Walk up to an empty 9/6 machibe, set it on JOB, as soon as I am ahead 1.25 or more move on. Borrowing from the infomercial.....set it and forget it!! The hardest part will be finding enough 9/6 machines. Every other one is still shut off. This has always worked in the past. The probkem is it can drive you nuts! No pun intevded.

Yeah, usually a net $20 per quad when they come that fast. My trips always end disastrously if I play after three quads. You already pushed your luck staying on the machine after a single quad in my experience. The hot cycle played itself out. The good news is that CET does offer Amstel on the ordering panel, so I enjoyed one before my Baileys much later. Maybe because I used a higher level card, but I was pleased. It was great to have the coffee upon entry. I couldn't stay completely off, but I kept it to FP quarter and left. I stayed in that mall long enough for CET to flip the switch. They must really have pure contempt for the few morning weekend customers they attract. Those suckers always seem to leave with empty pockets. You figure they would eventually catch on. Strategy may be to soak the tourists upon checkout. They already had their memorable evening on the premises. The NJ method should work. It's just way too much work for me. I employ it only after quads.

If I dash out to White House Subs and return, I can have the AL with it on the boardwalk picnic tables. Or if I transfer it to a thermos vessel, I can eat at tables across from WHS and never think about the casino again. Except to grab a few more drinks before leaving town. I'll further refine and polish my methods. It sure beats the arrive, empty pockets and regret method.
