The BS started costing me money in 1961. YEP a year before that stupid
assed book came out. I had been making money flat betting one silver
doller at a time. Did not know about DD and SP, so I just made a months pay in about four hours. Three times in ten days. On the last
one I was taught DD and SPs by a Mapes Club dealer sitting on my left at third base. Then I got the whole bs. I did not win as much playing BJ after that. In Jan 67 my ability to draw cards in any game
vanished, along with ALL other dumb luck wins. Ten years later circumstances got me back to Las Vegas, and my grand-father's saying
"if it is broke find out why" took over. I am finding out why and
having cheap vacations at the same time. Occasional lightning strikes
have put money in the bond fund. It is breaking my heart.
