  • Played the following two shoes, full of problems.  Everything from people spilling drinks to arguments over the cards.  Anyway, got up well over $3,000.00 at one point on a couple of simple progressions on two small streaks.  Gave back over $2,000.00 of the win money.  I was down to right at about $900.00 win money and then it was 1's and 2's for about 10 hands.  I pretty much stopped wagering because every time I win several thousand, it gets real ugly and can't win for anything.  Meaning, if I wager for the cut it will repeat one side and if I go for the repeat, it will cut.  Players made 3 in a row and it was about the end of the shoe almost.  I threw up one black chip on the 4th Player and got it.  Then I wagered 3 on the making a 5th Player and got it also.  Then went down to 2 and it still stuck on Players.  Everyone wagered the Bankers including my buddy.  Then I pumped it up to 6 for my third progressive bet which would be a 7th Player and everyone was really pumped and about all in on the Bankers once again.  I had to fight myself to stop wagering and just quit.  I wanted to put the $600 on the Banker really bad and my inner self said, just to stop.  I kept it on the Players and swore to myself that would be the last wager no matter what. Players get a 1 and Bankers have a 3.  Players pull a monkey.  I told myself, I knew it unintelligent person 100%! Banker pulls a 7.  I stopped and we cashed out.  MY buddy was up almost $2,000.00 and gave back about $1,500.00 wagering against the last 5 out of the 7 Players.  He was left with about $500 win and wanted to leave also, so we did. Have to be in the office at 6:30am and its about midnight with about 1.5 hours to the house.  We will come back after work later tonight.

  • The joys of working and trying to go to the casino!  On the way back home last night the phone is going off with a client needing response to a spill clean-up.  Put them off to this morning and now mobilizing some guys and going out on it.  Another 100 miles back to the east side of the state.  Will come back this afternoon and finish up the paperwork and change clothes at my office.  Heading back to play some baccarat tonight.  Probably play most of the night, will try to update as we go along playing. 

    I feel a few Fortune 7's coming on tonight!!!  Just have that feeling, let's se what happens.

  • On the way back from the job we just did, found a $100 bill in the parking lot of a fast food place.  I have this feeling that one or more of those 4 green chips to be bought with that bill---will prevail on the Fortune 7 wager tonight!?!?!!?

  • Friday night Oct 14th.  Arrived at the casino and went for a snack as no one was play bac yet.  Usually the action doesn't come to well after 7pm.  Got a couple orders of wings just put in the hot box in the cafeteria style food court.  Had a $20.00 voucher for food, so I put the $14.00 food tab on my points card and used the voucher to get some of my favorite Moon Pies to go with my coffee at the office and a bag of the large candies they have, to build my 3 Halloween baskets I normally do for my three kids.  I get those large plastic open top pumpkins at Wal Mart for $1.00 each and some tissue paper and stuff candy bags, some little toys and party favors in each.  I walked back and put the bag in my car and went back to check the bac table.  A few people sat down at the bac table and started.

    Unlike a lot of other casinos, more working people and recreational players seem to come here, so bac action is not 24 hours by any means with the typical grinding aggravating pissed-off player trying for a quick $100 food money I guess.   

    I went and got some coffee and came back, bought in with $700.00 and another $500.00 in reserve.  Shoe just started.  Jumped in and it was strong, everything making repeats 3 to 5 and 6 times.  Started to bet the Fortune 7 around the 10th hand or so and it hit!  On about the 15th hand I think.  I had $35.00 out there and $10.00 for the dealer right nest to it.  I made a few $5.00 wagers for some of the dealers that have made me Fortune 7's in the past and hit some of them for $205.00 drop for the dealer, this casino the dealers keep 100% of their tips. 

    Player was showing a monkey and an Ace and Bankers had a monkey and a 3.  The Players pulls a 4 and the whole table and the dealer goes "Poo-poo" loud!  He pulls a card and before he could flip it a few people said, "Slowly and think 4", he flips it and it's a darn 4!  Almost everyone had $15.00 or a Quarter on the Fortune 7, it was one loud table!  Dealer drops $410, pit manager and floor comes over, everyone high fiving.  New dealer comes in about 6 hands after that.  After a few hands she goes, "I will make another Fortune 7 within 4 to 7 hands".  Shoe is real strong and making money off the other repeating wagers with only the last one falling off each time.  On the 7th wager she makes the second Fortune 7 and I had another $35.00 up there.  The hand was 6 for the Players first two cards and Blackjack for the Bankers first two.  So naturally everyone is yelling for a 6 and a 6 it was.  $2,800.00 on the Fortune 7's!  She says, no dealer tip this time?  I said, oh you heard about that, she says "I was on blackjack down at the end of the row, everyone heard about it".  We all gave her a quarter each anyway.  This is a long time dealer that we all know, no offensive meant. 

    The shoe is about at the 35th hand or so, and I had to run out to the nearby town to put $500 on my wife's card to get some stuff for the kids.  Figured it was a good time, strong shoe and 2 Fortune 7's already, usually 90 percentile shoe would be unplayable after all that.  The town is only about 7 miles away so I said play slow and left a stack of green chips in my empty seat. 

    Did my business and got back.  It was at about hand 60 or so.  Two more Fortune 7's!!!  Oh well.  At most of the shoe there were more Fortune's than ties!  Unusual to say the least!  The shoe got almost unplayable with most players losing their bankrolls wagering $50.00 every time on tie, less ties than Fortune's.  I think their were 3 ties and the 4 Fortune's now.  I wagered smaller waiting for the next shoe.  2 more Fortune's came, I missed them both, threw up a few Fortune's but mentioned to miss bot additional ones.  Finished the shoe with 6 ties and the 6 Fortune's. 

    Played another couple of shoes and cashed out $2k up plus the $500 I sent out earlier.  Called it a night and headed back.

    Sat. night Oct. 15th.  Got there around 7pm and almost no one playing again.  I had a full day of stuff and wasn't feeling like hanging around.  Got a quick snack and made some phone calls. Went back and there was one guy playing, he is a determined player and most of the time her does fairly well.  Brings a large bankroll for this place and will either lose it all or win quite a bit.  He just started and I bout in with $500.00.  Some how I didn't like the aura and the rotating non regular dealers doing the game tonight.  I started out slow and steady.  Won a few and then straight down.  $50.00 wagers, some quarter wagers and then Fortune only attempts. 

    No rhythm and no gut feelings, none and that is strange for me at this place.  Anyway, I went down to $150.00 and said to myself I would not buy in again with the other $500.00 I had.  Straight losing for me in the beginning is not good from my experience.  I throw a $75.00 wager out, figuring two last wagers of $75.00 each to see what I can do.  I win it, and then wager again with the $150 and win that one too.  I throw out the $300.00 and win that one also.  I decide to call it a night, not feeling it and no one else is around.  This place will not do free hands and with only one other player there, I choose to leave.  I cashed out my $675.00 I had and laughed at the $175.00 for an hour and a half each way drive, gas and my time.  LOL.

    I stopped at the C-Store on the way back and filled up with gas, got my coffee and a snack for the drive and stopped at the store to get my little kids some truck DVD's and a Halloween sticker book and a Toy's R US gift card.  Almost the $175.00 gone. 

    That was my casino adventures for the weekend.

  • Mid week.  Planning on trying to get to the casino before the weekend, perhaps tomorrow night? 

    Have a few new moves with progressions looking to try out.  More of a disciplines wagering attack rather than a uniformed one.

  • My only complaint is those that butt in and offer their success and their continued strike rates while offering nothing, absolutely nothing.  They also chastise, and attempt to degrade and humiliate those that do post--at least what they believe in and find to be correct, giving their best attempts to disrupt and just be an all around dissatisfied jerk-off.  All of the 4 or 5 can really offer is some 'hey hey's' or "I make my living at it and it is random but I am smarter than all of you" or the other one is  something like, "You have no idea what you are talk about and you are just a loser, etc.". 

    Kind of made my morning reviewing some of the continued drab from our beloved 4 or 5 redundant, offering nothing, regular professional gamblers that are well off and comfortable gambling only, never having to work a regular job, have a career or own a business.  Now, to come to think about it, their drab dialog and drama intended is the exact same as that old newspaper column mom used to like, "Dear Abby".  LOL, once again.

  • Baccarat, the same as the line of work I am in.  At times everything is spot-on and perfect and other times, complete disaster.  While it is a science in the field I work in, there are more grey areas then regulated areas and those are open to interpretations by all the regulatory people.  Usually going something like, asking 4 different officials will usually yield you at least 3 different answers, and as well a rare situation when 2 of them agree on something in full. 

    Resembles the baccarat table pretty well!

  • Well, stopped by the local casino last night.  3 other people playing.  The past several months there has been one female constantly there almost every time I go.  She self admittedly told me a couple months ago she had herself voluntarily banned from the larger casino in another part of the state with the Midi/Macau style.  This casino has mini only and with a $10.00 to $2k limit per spot and you can surpass the max if other people are under theirs, you can place additional on their spots, etc.  The other place was $10/$1k, $25/$2k, $50/$3k or $100/$5k limits with 2 or 3 tables on Midi and Mini.  She was a larger bettor there and told me before she lost in excess of $100k earlier in the year.  She claims she gets sucked in and loses her mind and can't think straight cause players are handling the cards, etc. 

    Anyway,  last night she bought in for $1,500.00 and was wagering anywhere from $50 to $300 a hand.  The shoe was perfectly matching, 4 Bankers and then a couple Players, and then 4 Bankers and a tie and a Player.  Then a few spots of chop-chop and then 3 Bankers followed immediately by 3 Players, then 2 Bankers and 2 Players for 5 times.  She caught a few and then losses the majority of the wagers.  I finally asked her bluntly, how she was thinking.................

    Like for instance, where the Bankers made 3 in a row and then a Player, she wagers on cutting back to the Banker.  I asked her why?  She says, most of the time it will not hold and will cut.  Of course it made 2 more Players to equally match the 3 Bankers.  She lost two in a row.  Then she says, Players will probably run.  Of course it cuts bank to Banker, leaving the 3 and 3 side by side. The when it made the 5 times doubles for each the Players and the Bankers, she is only wagering the 2 spot for the cut and she loses each and every wager.  Finally, after that section there is the standard 1's and 3's, etc.  Bankers  get to be right at the bottom producing 6 in a row and she wagers for the Players.  Bankers tie with that hand.  Then she tells me, now that it tied, it will cut back to the Players.  Of course she is once again wrong.  Makes another 3 Bankers for a total of 9 w/the tie.  She wagers on two of them and gets them and loses the last hand staying on the Banker when it does cut to the Players.   

    This is the typical thought from the players.  I have just become used to the player having the trend of thought, that this will cut.  Just what floors me and I still don't understand the way of thinking, is that the majority really do believe a strong/repeating shoe should not be and it will not hold and a weak/choppy shoe will turn strong.  Not once, twice or occasionally, but always. They really do prevent themselves from prevailing the highest majority of the times. 

    I still say, play what the shoe is producing, no matter if that is strong/repeating or chop/weak, etc.

  • November 1st.  WOW, what a night.  2 Shoes and phenomenal Fortune 7 hits!  Out of this world, just playing on the local level for fun.

    Shoe starts out, no one is playing--I am the only one and I normally do not open the shoe and play by myself.  There as a gut feeling and an inner voice screaming to play.  I wagered the first three hands on Banker and won 2 of the three.  B-P-B.  Stuck on Banker a solid 7 in a row and then back to chop.  Around hand 5 I started a quarter on each on for the Fortune 7 and a nickel up for the dealer.  I stop the nickel for the dealer and kept the quarter out on each wager for the Fortune 7.  Hand 12 I am on the Banker with a few hundred and the quarter up on the Fortune 7.  Players showing Monkey and a 2.  Banker has two monkeys.  Players draw a 4.  The dealer I knew well.  I told him, "come on 7, give me that 7, do it slow, bring it out and spin it around a full time".  He does and he flops over the 7!  We high five and he says, "I can never get the Fortune when a player has me up on it".  I look at him, and say "you going to make a back-to-back Fortune7"?  And he says, "Yes".  So I put him up on it for a nickel.  I stop him and say, "you know what, I will do one better".  And I put him up for $10.00 with 2 nickels and I point out how we have the same amount of chips, although mine were green.  He does not do it.  He looks at me when he is taking the money off the Fortune spot and says thanks for the try.  Told me, don't feel compelled to wager for him to.  I told him it was all good.  I sat up and asked him, "how about now--you feel it"?  And he said he felt it.  Of course a dealer would say that, at least the majority of them anyway.  But he was a good dealer and when players got mad at the shoe or him, you could see it in him that he felt bad people lose money at times.  So, that is why I always try for those kind of dealers when it is going my way.  I put him up for 3 nickels and myself for the 2 greens on the Fortune 7.  I point out and make fun, as to how his chips stack is bigger than mine.  He deals the cards, Players return a 5 and the Banker has a monkey and a an ace.  He pulls a monkey for the Players and looks once more at me.  I told him, "Come on, 6 baby---6 baby"!  He pulls it out and I tell him not fast, I don't know why, just feel something stupid and say do it slow, real slow. He pulls it out and lets it sit there for about 15 seconds, looks at me as to say, can it be flopped now.  I tell him do it, and I am almost yelling for a 6.  I knew it was coming and it most certainly was.  We high five and he counts out my $2k and his $600.  Floor comes over and says, 'nice'.  Dealers on both sides of the bac table are smiling for him.  BTW, this casino the dealers keep 100% of their tips for themselves.

    I hit one more Fortune 7 that shoe for one quarter and 2 Fortune 7's the following shoe.  A total of 5 Fortune 7's in two shoes which is a record for me.  Cashed out and called it a night.

  • Well, been a tough past week with lots of work on the career front.  Been to the casino once since all the Fortune 7's, the 5 in 2 shoes that I hit last week.  I think I will go to the casino tonight if nothing comes up between now and then, another 4 hours or so. 

    I seem to have a lackadaisical attitude and play aura but kid you not, I do have a regime and most of the time it is pretty spot on.

  • Went last night.  Now it's getting dark early, around 5pm.  I have about 80 miles one way to the casino.  Stopped along the Interstate and had that rumble in the gut, so I fueled up and instead of grabbing something at the C-Store, I went across the street the Mickey D's.  Boy---it was ungodly crowded!  15 min's later I am getting the fish filet and small fries I ordered.  Grabbed it to go.  Love their fish sandwiches there and that is it, everything else sucks!  Get to the casino and the dealer is sitting there at the baccarat table.  No one is playing.  Have this gut feeling it is going to be dead all night.  So does the dealer,  We make some small talk mostly about football and no one is showing up.  The games at this casino are usually in swing by 6, maybe 7pm at the latest.   

    So, I go grab a cup of coffee and a snack at the food arcade.  Head back over to the table games section and still a no go.  So I head into the high limit slot machine room.  I am not one for playing the machines but nothing else is going on. Find one of those Triple 7 machines with a huge jackpot.  Put $40.00 in the machine to play the $2 max spin for the progressive and the large jackpot.  All the way down to $4.00 and then a win of $30.00. Then all the way back down to $2.00 and then a few wins of $10.00 each.  Then all the way back down again to $2.00 and a win of $30.00 so I promise myself if I get even I will cash out, this sucks.  People actually have fun doing this????  I finally get up to $48.00 so I cash out.  I head over to the baccarat table.  Still no go.  So I go back to the slots and find one of those Wheel of Fortune machines.  Same thing, put another $40.00 in it and lose.  Put $30.00 into it and go up and down between $3.00 and $40.00 or something.  Finally cash out $22.00.  Down about $50.00 or so.

    Head back tot he baccarat table and nothing.  Dealers changed up and no one playing.  So call it a night and head home.  No go, a rarity over there at that place but I can only assume everyone is waiting for tonight to head over there.

  • Well its time to lock up the office here.  Heading out to the casino, looking forward to some baccarat.  For some strange reason I can feel the Fortune 7's coming!   :P

    Nothing sweeter than having a couple quarters up on the Fortune 7 and the Players side returns two monkeys and the bankers side has the same.  Players side pulls another monkey.  I can hear the 7's being shouted now!   ::)

  • Fizzled out.  Bad aura and nasty shoe.  I cut it short and not getting involved.  I am not going to fight the obvious and the aura.  Got aggravated before I got involved in the game.  Kind of proud of myself and a bit bummed out, but have other stuff I got involved in last night.

  • At the casino, Sunday @ 4:30.  Few people sitting down, going to start playing after they open the table.  About 10 more minuets or so.  Will post.  Hopefully Mr. Wonderful, that guy with the bloody British accent won't show up!!! LOL! What a pain in the rear!

    4:47. Seriously dude!  Mr. Wonderful and he is running his mouth about Trump.  Oh lord seriously.  I waited for him to wager and then said to the lady next to me, the same one last week or so that squared off on him--let's go opposite and she violently shook her head up and down.  LOL.  It's going to be a fun night!  Throw $300.00 out there and a quarter on the Fortune 7 and 2 nickels for the dealer on the 7 also.  Player returned blackjack and Bankers a 2.  We broke out we are ahead by 1, don't know why but we did. LOL.  Then Players drew a monkey we are all screaming for a 5.  Dealer pulls and says darn!  He seen it first and it was a four.  At least we won the Banker our first wager. 

    4:58. Played 5 hands out of the first 9.  Won 4 of the bets.   Just won a Fortune 7 with one nickel up for the dealer. Tried 6 times out of the 9, lost the $150.00 to make $1k!!!  LOL. Classic, one for the books.  Players had 2 and Bankers had 2 monkeys.  Players drew an 8 for zero and Mr. Wonderful yelling for a monkey to catch the tie.  The whole table had Fortune 7 other than Mr. Wonderful.  We are all yelling for  a 7. Dealer peaks his side and looks at us and says we got a chance it is a 3 line card.  I know the dealer well and he would have just flipped it if it was anything but a 7.  I stand up and try to high five the lady next to me.  The dealer says, hold on---come on it might not be--could be a 6 or a 7.  I said no way, the lady is reserved.  The dealer says to go ahead and high five me.  LOL, it was a classic.   

    5:09. I am dwelling on the Fortune 7 within the first 10 hands.  Anyway, about hand 20, was 3 Bankers and cut to Players, did not wager it, should have after talking about it earlier today.  Was 2 Bankers, wagered the 2nd Banker and won it.  Didn't wager and made a 3rd.  I wagered $600.00 on the cut back to Players after it made the 3rd one, caught it!  Up $2,400.00 on a $900.00 buy-in by hand 25.

    5:28.  Hand 45.  Up $2,600.00.  Game slowed down.  Argument with Mr. Wonderful and several people changing money for additional buy-ins.  I put $2,500.00 win away and locked up $500 out of my original buy-in.  I am continuing with the $600.00.  Caught a few more and then did something unintelligent.  Played against the shoe, which I normally don't do.  But did.  Played for the cut after3 and 4 and continued each time, once to 9 and once to 7.  Got frustrated.  Should have stayed on the repeats instead of switching up.

    5:40.  Hand 58.  Lots of nothing.  Not wagering, waiting for next shoe.  Throwing a quarter out here and there only for the Fortune 7. 

    5:50.  Hand 73.  I said to myself and said out loud, I was going to wait until next shoe.  I wagered two wagers of $225.00 each on what appeared to be something great to me.  Lost both.  Always, after doing really good, this darn stuff always happens to me.  I should have waited. 

    6:15.  New shoe.  Starting it with $600.00.  Not going to change any more.  Pocketed a total of $2k.  So if I lose the $600.00 I would be up $1,100.00. If I can spin more, all the better.  $600.00 on the table, that's it.

    Seriously, Sunday must be official argue day.  Just seems like one argument after the next.  Now it's about someone's buy in.  Come the heck on.

    6:40.  Hand 18. Played about 10 hands at the most and won about half. Sitting with $650.00. 

    6:55.  Hand 34.  Down to $300.00.  Going to make 2 wagers of $150.00 each, the next time B or P hits 3.  Just 1's and 2's right now.  Catch some and then equally lose as many.  One Fortune 7 at hand 27 and I missed that one.  I have said in the past how I like the first 9-12 hands for the Fortune 7 and then hand 25-35 or thereabouts.  I don't want to get frustrated but between my own decision of wagering against what was happening and Mr. Wonderful and other arguing like it is a sport, it sucks.

    7:05.  Hand 47. Lots of no wagering hands, they won't do free hands here so someone just throws out $10.00 on both the B and P and they deal to get on with the hands. 

    7:15.  Hand 56.  A couple problems.  One the dealer swoop away someone's money that didn't lose and paid others that won.  Those players quickly put their wrongly paid chips in their stacks and then the other player said something.  So naturally shoe pulled in and floor and casino manager called over. Cards put back out and original wagers forced to be put back, etc., etc.  Long and drawn out.  Supposedly according to senior management, if the next hand did not play yet, the casino has a right to do this.  If a player will not cooperate, could be banned, etc., etc.   

    I won the first 3 repeating anti-streak wager.  I pressed it on the same side for a repeating one that it switched to and won that also.  $150 won and then $300 won.

    7:30.  Played a few more hands.  I am sitting with 980.00. Calling it a night.  Made $2k. I will call
    the other $30.00 for gas, coffee and snacks for the ride back home.  Cool.  Not bad for a dead Sunday.  The arguments have to stop, al they do is pull the jokers/clowns to the left and right of me down. LOL!

  • This was posted within my Blog section on November 8th.  Someone PM'd me and asked about this guy I call, 'Mr. Wonderful'.  Here is a bit more about him, sure there are many around with the same aura as him!
    ____________________________________________________________________________________
     
                             
    The other night I was at one of the local casinos.  There was a few of us at the baccarat table playing.  Ups and downs.  Got on a real nice run of 6 Bankers followed by 6 Players with some ties, then the doubles came out, 2 by 2 by 2 by 2 about 5 or 6 times.  Then the chop started, a good 9 or 10 squares of alternating chops.  Finally, all of us together with some great camaraderie.  We kept humiliating each other into wagering more saying stuff like, 'if you chicken--go home', etc.  Shoe about 1/3rd over. 

    Here comes one of the regulars.  Let me describe him for you so you can get a better understanding. He truly believe he can out think the shoe.  Wins a few times and walks away, but the highest majority of the time, he will get wiped and then go to the ATM or cage and get more of his available funds.  Most of the time, in fact the highest majority of the times, he will just lose the additional buy in.  Even if he wins and wins good, somehow his mind convinces him he can 'smack' the casino and he is an advantaged player, he truly believes it---very easy to see his aura and put that together with his words.

    He flaunts his Rolex watch (fake or not, a clear flaunt), impresses some around here in the Midwest I guess but so comical.  His throws out a few words here and there in some kind of British accent from England-Scotland or perhaps the Wales, like he is a scholar or something, LOL.  Throws out political statements every once in awhile without many paying attention to him, when he looks at the dealer and kind of inquires why he or she doesn't answer him, they all just shrug their shoulders.  Usually, like clockwork when he losses on his progressions after his routine downfall with his bankroll, the regular, 'bloody this poo-poo American casino' or else it is, 'you yanks are so under educated you can't even tell if it is daylight outside'. 

    Most of the players don't even pay attention to him.  Once in a while someone will engage in the banter with him and he will go off into some long drawn out dialog about his country versus America.  Anyway, he is playing and as I said, we are all in the grove and quadrupled or five folded our buy-ins easily.  He starts in and mumbles how he knows the cut is coming.  The shoe was producing those alternating chop-chop B-P-B-P-B-P-B-P, etc., that few can flow with to prevail on their wagers.  However, we were all doing it and winning.  He goes, "the streaks are ready to come back".  I look at the others and we give each other that smirky smile and we are all in agreement to follow the shoe and ignore 'Mr. Know It All'.

    It was just a Player so we are all up on Banker and one of the women playing says, 'Fortune Time'.  Our friend with the British accent is mumbling something about 'bloody unintelligent yanks wasting their money', etc., etc.  I throw up a quarter on the Fortune and every one else has either a few nickels or a quarter or two on the Fortune, except Mr. Wonderful.  Player returns two monkeys and Banker has a two card 3.  Mr. Wonderful, lets go with a loud 8 or 9.  Player gets a 4.  All the other players are shouting to the dealer for one more 4.  Must of been said about 20 times in the short order by the other players, asking for a 4.  Mr. Wonderful is calling for a monkey repeatedly with vengeance in fact!  The dealer flips a 4.  Fantastic.   

    The game moves on.  All chops and then a bunch of 1's and 2's until the end of the shoe.  Mr. Wonderful is kind of quite.  Next shoe is readied and Mr.. Wonderful let's go with his typical garbage mouth and more bad mouthing.  One of the girls playing stands up and squares off on him.  Basically told him to leave if he doesn't like playing there and calls him a cue-ball jerk off that is hated by most everyone in the place.   

    He doesn't say anything, just acts like he is concentrating on playing.  The game moves on.  We are all wagering against Mr. Wonderful and we are winning like 7 or 8 wagers out of every 10 hands.  At one point he notices we are wagering against him.  Says something but it was lower than a mumble, guess his energy level was dropping once again.  He wagers on one side and we all throw up our wagers on the other side.  He slides his wager over to the side we are on and we all pull our wagers down.  He looks at us and says very clearly, "so you all are wagering against me, huh"?  Someone said, "absolutely cause you can't win the way you play there pal".  He snickers out loud and then the dealer flops over a natural for the side he was originally on and blackjack for the side he switched to.  We all broke out laughing and the girl that squared off on him actually fell out of her chair and busted out in a long drawn out laugh. I just took a sip of my coffee and when I saw the natural on the side he was on, part of that sip came up and out of my nose.  Seriously, I couldn't believe it and broke out into laughter myself.   Classic, best thing I seen for a long time!!!  He goes bust and asks the dealer to save his seat as he walks away.  The dealer doesn't and another player walks up and takes the seat.  About 5 minuets later he returns.  Squares off on the dealer and says he wants his seat back.  Dealer refers him to the floor person.  The floor person tells him, sorry it was not reserved.  The game continued without obnoxious Mr. Wonderful.

    After he walked away, the floor person came over and told us, "if you guys keep this up, we will have to charge you an entertainment charge".  LOL.
