Oops, good catch OMT. It still would have made a nice payday for FAA, short coin or not.

True - but can you imagine the whining that would have accompanied it?

Yes. We've heard it before. Not so much whining as regret and woe is me...

It does make for a hell of an optical illusion. I already had a short coin winter RF; a summer bookend would have been tragic. The lost $100 hand potential return was bad enough. TT, you missed reacting to my two SFs in an hour’s time. How the deck does that happen?

I didn't miss reacting. I just didn't comment. How does 2 SF in 1 hour happen? You got the cards. I guess you pushed the button at a good time. Twice.

For now you are the sultan of the single suit straight. But surely you can do better. I haven't seen a sequential one yet.

Sad Saturday. I lost my $25 table FP on a nine to craps. Borgata again a killer with no quad for ninety minutes; I left -$190. I lost even more at Caesars. Dollar play killed me. My next plan is simply to enjoy the city and gamble an hour before I usually leave. Net Day: -$397. 54 TCs.

Maybe you only like single line games, but I wonder if you've looked at the Borgata Double Super Times Pay. According to vpfree2, Borg has 9/5 Jacks for nickels and above.

It's a very flexible game for bet variations. You can play any number of lines from 1 to 10, and coins per line up to 7. Your 6th coin activates the deal multiplier and 7th buys you the draw multiplier. EV is below 99%, but you might like it as an alternative when the single line isn't working out for you.

If I am not doing well on a single line game, I can sometines come back on triple play or 5 play. However, a larger bankroll is required and if nearly every deal is poor, the money goes very fast

I have never enjoyed multiple line games. Too much clutter. I like clean, minimal detail and sharp maximum focus. I simply have to learn to either play less or quit on a session altogether.

In general, I agree. Unless of course I win on one of the other ones. Extremely frustrating to be dealt garbage maybe at best hold one card and hope against hope something will connect on ten hands.
