    Have been out of action for a month - on the way to VT. stopped at MGM Springfield and found one table open- Good bye.

    In practice the other day using my standard 2 finger UH grip had a dismal practice where I had maybe 14 or so short rolls with the 4&10 mostly silent.What is going on?

    Later switched to the 3 finger grip and had 3 successive stellar hands.
    But I like the 2 finger- went back to it ( who the hell knew what my flaw was) but something that I was using with the 3 finger had to pass over since my 2 finger UH toss is the best it has ever been.Just had a hand in practiçe 44 rolls with 8 4&10 hits.Now I did not get my second hit after about 20 rolls.
    I like the shot! Super fluid and yes the standard 2" side by side rebounds from the back wall.

    Just taking it in. No hurry - shot ain't going anywhere. LOL

    that is to be expected, because whether you like it or not, you dont throw today exactly like
    you threw yesterday. There is always a small variance. That is why I play the way I do.
    maybe using one set with the 2 finger shot, you had a number of short rolls, but one small
    set change may have given you much better results. But since your smarter than many
    di's you changed you shot using a different grip and hade much better results.

    There is nothing wrong with the idea you cant be exactly the same everyday, but most days
    your close enough to being the same that some small change will produce decent results.

    good job with that

    It has been under performing and so has the Mohegan & Foxwoods. It is a small casino so it is weathering it. Good to have competition.

    The LID with the assistance from Mr Von Duck has analyzed all of the financial data from over 100 USA casinos and have determined a direct correlation between loss of revenue and the negative postings from Mr TedVegas.

    That doesn’t make sense. If this Mr. Ted Vegas was a casino shill....would he not be encouraging everyone with positive comments, tables a dumping, slots a jingling, etc, etc?.....ergo this would bring in more gamblers and increase Mr. Ted Vegas profit sharing plan.

    Scratching head....

    MGM Springfield is offering Christmas Pecan pies for all. I suggest you and LID go. My advice for you both to also take $500 in cash....just to have in your wallet. No pre conditions.;)

    Don’t worry about having to navigate thru the yellow brick road past tables, slots and all other gambling opportunities to get your Pie. Think of it as getting to Oz.

    If you haven’t been to Vegas....I’d advise a trip. No gambling city like it. Place is wild, wacky....and there is gambling. At least once. The Strip has gotten a bit touristy trap....just be in the lookout.

    if a Cirque show....Beatles Love.
    One of a kind.

    Mr Guacamole, Mr Ted Vegas is giving bad advise to you about the Las Vegas. With their resort fees, beer fees, high cost rooms and under passes, bathroom fees, expensive foods and casino chicks as well as them bringing out the bias dices on weekends and special events; getting a free dumb show will be very, very expensive. Also, it's a long car ride from CT which could seriously throw your toss off. Also, I here they will now arrest crap personages who sleep on street on the strip.

    As far as Pecan pies, I love Pecans but the LID is on roadtrip at Montana casinos with his bestest friend, Jilly from Philly, who is world class dice controller. I don't have car and the nurses at this facility won't let me out of my room.

    Just saw a photo in one of the LV online newspapers, showing 4 beautiful showgirls welcoming passengers at McCarren. Now, THAT'S what draws the world to Vegas! Vegas better remember the "good old days," because that's what everyone else does, and wants. ;)

    Good old DM. Has lots of good info on the art and science of DI and was gracious enough to give you some advice. I wonder what ever happened to Shooter X? He had the best and most interesting trip reports even better than the MP.
