If you win almost $600,000 then what's $30k really? Another Chevy Camaro? Come on.

Unless your counting all your hours as a continuous session, I must say that the probability of not having a losing session in that time must be miniscule. How many sessions have you played since last spring?

Paddler.
Let's see, from memory--

Vegas: 10 hours (several short sessions)
Charles Town: 1 hour (1 session)
AC: 4 hours (2 or more sessions)
Dover Downs: 4 hours (ditto)
AC: 4 hours (ditto)
Dover Downs: 4 hours (ditto)
Mt. Airy PA: 1 hour (1 session)
Sands PA: 5 hours (2 sessions)

About 33 hours total

Total wins: about $5,000

I probably lost that much in a single session before Vegas.

Everything is approx. I can't remember any losing sessions in that time, but there could have been a very small one here or there. But the total wins still net out the same since I am pretty accurate what I net for each trip. There could be a discrepancy here and there for VP play, which in general was a net loser; that is, I may have won more at blackjack, but netted out VP losses.

The player in question was extremly lucky in more ways than one. Sounds incrediable but thats what luck is all about.
