True. I guess most people think of it the other way. Another famous one is I only lost house money. Nooooooo….it was your money. Once those credits appeared in your machine or made their way to your pocket.

Yes, we are guilty of using “gave back” much too loosely, as it implies a goodwill donation when we are actually trying to shake down the casino even more. I risked that pitfall when I stayed on for ten minutes after a quad last week, just switching games. Fortunately, I hit a $200 quad and all was well with the world.

I am another BPD fan. You are basically frantically racing to the quad every session, so it is stressful. I was unsuccessful today at Borgata and had to switch back to JOB for my quad, thus my losing day there.
FAA I find it somewhat odd that on July 10, 2021 in the Video Poker Strategy forum you started a thread titled: "BPD Flier" and in this thread you stated that you were not a fan of BPD but yet here you state: "I am another BPD fan."

Any thoughts on this?

Recency bias influence; it just worked. I do know full well that it’s a 1.1% EV hit vs. JOB in the casino and even on that very machine. But I panic after early losses and 400 coins is 400 coins. It’s certainly not the EV play. It’s more of a last ditch scramble Hail Mary.

Panic, last ditch scrambles and Hail Mary's are poor decorum for the gambler. More importantly they have no calculable affect on the outcome.

I still think the 99.95% Pickem would be my game of choice at MS. $600 bucks for a quad on dollar play is nice. Boring game though.

Heck yes. I’m only getting $400 on 98.5% BPD when I indulge.

Quad Father has lost his powers of persuasion. The hiatus can only help. I will raise my BR to half of yours and provide the entertainment.

Watching x files reruns. That may be better, but still love x files. Especially Scully.
