You are correct of course but storytelling is a weak approach to a technical topic as handicapping.

I, myself, am currently working on a book which intends to chronicle my recent gambling exploits in Las Vegas. I plan to title it..."Las Vegas on $2,700 a Day"...which is about what my stay there is currently costing me.

thank you cj!

I admit the monthly butt kickings are taking a little wind out of my sails but i'm thinking of putting together another vegas run here to possibly give our 2017 tour a second wind.

we're not even halfway home yet so there's still hope!!

mr beyer is a LEGEND and i'm not in his class but for the poker reports I do try my best to capture the uniqueness of each game. a certain atmosphere combining the energy of the casino, the table, and my own personal life circumstances at the time.

hope you are doing well and getting some time to play!!

when you see me in the racebook next month beating penn national with a single beattie methodology measurement known as sustained juice (sj) make sure you remain jaded and recognize that conditions in Grantville are ideal for beating the races with such a mechanical system of rating.
