    We were playing back in July 2015 and the dealer with his unintelligent shenanigans got us really pissed. Hey, when your Italian and from the Bronx, getting chastised by a 20 something year old dealer that doesn't even know the rules of the game----oh well, some will understand it and most won't. Hell, I reached over and picked up the shoe and throw it in the middle of the pit. Everyone clapped and high fived, it was worth it. Yes, of course the floor person jumped up and down and screamed, literally for security and came over and stood over me in my face. Called him a punk fag and grabbed my crotch (god it felt like I was back in the Bronx on Jerome Avenue)! 30 days time out. LOL, another one for the books.

    The situation was. All the players at the table wagering on Player side. High wagering player returns a total of 5 and the dealer then flops a total of 6 over for the Banker. Dealer slides a card out and the high wagering player flops over a 7 to add on to the player side. Dealer proceeds to immediately swoop everyone's wager up while saying, "banker wins with a 6 over a 2". Naturally we all look at the dealer and say, wait. He already had all the chips sitting in the last person's space by the time he stopped and did that unintelligent look---crunch one's eyebrows and cock your head slightly thing. Dealer yells for the floor person and when he comes over, the wagers are returned and floor tells the dealer to pull another banker card. Banker card is an Ace and fortune 40-1 wins. Most of us had fortune out there, which added up to a hell of a lot more than our Player wagers anyways. Dealer still in amazement and says some smart stuff thing like, "guess none of you made a mistake in your lives, huh". We all look at him and ask how long he has been dealing and he says, "none of your business, I know what I am doing" or something real close to that anyways. My buddy and I look at each other and we mimic the dealer in everything he just said. To really understand this, you would have to know my buddy is a retired NYC police officer that spent 25 years or so in ESU (Emergency Services Unit) which is the city's elite cops and to boot, he was in Truck 1 which was the elite of the elite out of Manhattan. He stands about 6' 3" and weighs about 260 or so. He has more accommodations and awards than years this dealer has been alive. My buddy likes to play baccarat and when we do, we like to enjoy the game, the other players shenanigans and have a few drinks, win or lose doesn't much matter.

    The dealer doesn't think our little skit is very funny and calls the floor person over once again. He tells the floor that we are acting a bit out of line and asked the floor to tell us to 'behave' ourselves. That is when I pick up the shoe and toss it into the middle of the pit. I told the dealer, "how's that--is that behaving good enough for you"?

    I got a 30 day time out, stand in the corner--for my actions. Big deal.

    Good for you Glen. Sometimes we just goota let our frustrations out. I hear you. I'm a city kid too. Born and raised in Brooklyn on Flatbush Avenue. I used to go to the Bronx up to Parkchester and Castle Hill and Fordham....to play ball.......

    Tried your 1-3-2-6 on some of the free practice sites. Did good on one session and poor on another. What I like about the system is when you are down if you stay disciplined you can come back when the 6x unit hits....Thanks..

    OMG, Flatbush! Dad was born and raised on Sutter Avenue, in 75 pct., now super famous by the movie 'The 75' of course. God, lord, do I remember Flatbush! I am a Bronx kid by heart and Jerome Avenue north of the Cross-Bronx was my area and lived off of Exit 13, Conner Street, last exit in the Bronx, get off at MY Bus Service, north side of Boston Post Road up in the northeast section of the Bronx. Once I made money I had to move to The Corinthian buildings on first avenue (I think 34-35th streets) in Manhattan of course.

    The progressions do allow me many things if hitting, especially prolonging the bankroll for many chances to comeback or just plain make money.

    In the places I play, the players have a lot of sway. You select your fav ones deal to you, or if one gives you attitude, you can change them.

    I did not see this occur but was coming in from outside. I saw a couple police cars and didn't think anything of it. Walk inside and was told a player lost a hand, climbed on to the bac table and proceeded to urine on the table!

    In a different casino, their biggest whale was playing in a private room. He lost a hand. Grabbed the tea pot sitting next to him and threw it at the wall, shattered and a mess. Floor person just called for a clean up, and player continued to play.

    When you are the Whale, you can get away with a lot.

    that is funny Glen I have asked for a 30 day time out many times but it has never happen. I have drop F bombs thrown chairs and slam drinks on the table and floor. Not once have I've been banned or asked to leave.

    But the dealer and pit managers all say if you want to leave just get up and leave.

    Problem is being a Degenerate we never want to leave when we are up.


    I might have to try the pick up the shoe and throw it. That is a little too much I don't want to end up in handcuffs and 24hour hold in jail.

    Remembering one time in Atlantic City @ Bally's Grand (long before the Hilton and ACH days), in the high limit room, there were two large 14 player/3 dealer bac tables and a row of blackjack tables against the back wall. Each of the east and west walls of the high limit room were mirrored from ceiling to floor. The room between the end of the east end bac table and the wall was trivial and floor person used to stand right behind the curve of the table, between the wall and the table.

    Cutting the story, the floor person said something to us. We all got upset of course and we were in the process of standing up and those were the high back chairs with roller casters on the bottom. As I stood up the base of the chair seat was equal with my upper calf's and I gave the chair a real good scoot back, thinking it would bounce off the wall. Instead, the entire mirrored wall came down within seconds of course.

    Back then, no ban. We were players that were valued by the casino. Of course our host was there and she called the Vice President of Marketing, Joe Sarnese and Joe came running in, let's just say waddling in took care of it all. The game did go on.
