I have been away for quite some time. I miss you all....I really do. That said, I am thinking about renewing my GC membership....if I am going to play the game, "I need to keep up with the game".
After being "out of the business" for about the last 3 years, I have made 2 recent trips to MS. During last trip, in a store that I was FB'd (flat-betted) in years ago, but still gives me great comps, out of losing and sheer boredom, sorry, "BUT I WENT PROGRESSIVE"!
And, in about 5 minutes, I got to "step away from the table" and meet the new Shift Casino Manager. Very polite and professional....just quite simply: "Sir, you were told in 20xx, that if you want to play BJ here, that you cannot raise your bets".....in response, "Sorry, I did not know that still applied, etc.".....FIVE MINUTES!
Ironically, when I was FB'd....I was too drunk to CC (actually still could, but did not want to), and was playing, God-Forbid, Progessive....and kind of same as stated above!
Whatever, ALMOST to the point of this post, my Girlfriend and I will be going to Hot Springs next week for their Horse-Races at Oaklawn....kind of stupid name, if you ask me....how can you have a lawn with Oaks?...."Into the turn, LV's Bear lundges ahead, and hits an oaktree".
Anyhow, for the Horse-Races, I plan to, as I usually do, buy a Racing Form, look at last 3 races for each horse for similar conditions, calculate a Speed-Rating, then add/subtract points for Jockey's win %, Owner's win %, etc., then hopefully ID "medium Pay-off" horses that all of the experts have missed......if history repeats itself, while WE have not been to Oaklawn, She will just pick CUTE names, and do pretty well!.....AND, I will be betting Max. on the Longest shot, in the Last race of the day!...in an attempt to just get even.
So, moving right along, Oaklawn's Website indicates that:
1. They have Poker.........ZZZZZZZZZ!
2. They have BJ............looks like a Video game.
3. They have VP.
4. They have Slots.
Further, due to their limited schedule, I will presume that MAJOR Comps are not a consideration.
THEREFORE, my questions are, to those who have been there and/or know:
A. Any live BJ? Video BJ SD, DD, CSM, etc.?
B. VP remotely playable?
C. Slot payback?
Thanks for your attention.
Pleae hold the FLAME....we just want to get away from the real world for a few days....have some fun, and hopefully, minimize our neg. EV, and maybe, just maybe, get a free COMP'd hot dog!
