ya. $2K is the biggest payout I've won in a long time.. I don't gamble too often, except Mega Lottery, which I lost $10 last night. oh well, another chance on Friday..

I sent 6 months traveling around South America with the Navy this past summer. I got out of the Navy this past OCT. I seen a lot of Sailors winning huge at the casinos on black jack in Chile.. One of my friends brought home nearly $60K US. He won big once!! then flipped it for bigger payouts.. crazy.. he gave me a bottle of wine for watching him.. while I lost my $300 at each casino..

$60K?
How long did it take to win that amount?
Did your friend(s) even took potty break(s)? Big Grin
goodluck

I don't think he did.. I just remember, I kept leaving to go check out the other tables & Beautiful Chilean girls.. I know he had too much to drink the first time he won big. Cost him a few thousand to exchange chilean peso back to US. Had to keep all his money in the Ship's Safe... I have a lot of friends that gamble a lot, but he's the only one I know that won huge.. everybody else wins a few thousand here & there, then occasionally $10K... I hate playing cards for money, unless it's using quarters with friends... I'd rather lose my money on the slots.. then I can say that the machine cheated me.. I still feel bad for losing in the end, but I can laugh it off.

Oh I see.

And about the slot machine gambling... I would rather lose my money on the table than on a machine. On the table, you have a better chance of winning when you know how to play (for example: Black Jack). Yes, I am talking about card counting (I don't know how to do it). On the machine, when it cheats, there is nothing you can do. On the table, when the dealer cheats and you caught it, then you have the attention (good or bad) of the house.

I just wish that I can learn how to card count but, it is really hard for me. Right now, I am okay with counting my basketball cards (lol).

+1 .. think that's the best counting I can do right now. I used to QA inventory sheets my guys did when I worked in Supply Department on a Naval vessel.. I'm good at accounting, but not poker cards.. I am ok with blackjack, but not the best.. I'm better at playing WAR with cards..

rofl
Looks like Preferred will be released next WED...
these cards look really nice. did some Googling and liked what I saw. I may pick up a box. Wish I could get a case too lol
Release date was supposed to be tomorrow... but I got an email from where I bought a case from saying it was shipped today... 3 day shipping... hope so... I had another package shipped from the same people on the East Coast, that was supposed to be 3 day shipping, but UPS says it will not be delivered until tomorrow evening.. sucks. I was supposed to head out, now I got to wait around for a delivery.. especially if my Manager's Office closes. Don't want them to leave boxes on my front door step.. UPS is notorious for that..
They just pulled some sick cards on Panini's Ustream.They had a Durant 2/3!
