The sad thing is, that's what passes for a good game in AC now. Don't worry, it can be beaten. You're just going to have to work quite hard to beat it.

From what I've been reading I figured it was beatable, and truth be told I don't expect to make money hand over fist here (although it'd be nice...heh). I am willing to put in as much time as I need to in order to at least have a relatively stable bankroll that will enable me to play the game I love.

I know this has gotten off topic by now so...

Being in Windsor, I have the option to also play at MGM Detroit, MotorCity Casino and...I keep thinking there's a third, can't remember it though. Any comments on any of those?

The third Detroit casino is Greektown. And if you want to drive 60 miles north of Windsor; Sarnia (Sister city of Port Huron) also has a casino, right next to the Blue Water Bridge. Windsor, Detroit, Sarnia - ALL of these casinos have playable games, but you might want to learn some of the more slightly advanced techniques, other than just straight counting.

Then when I got through the tunnel into the U.S., I was detained & repeatedly questioned and searched for another 5 hours by U.S. Customs; during which time one of the Customs agents slipped up & admitted that they had received a call from the casino, telling them I would be smuggling money across the border. Luckily for me, I had given all of the winnings to a Canadian friend to hold onto. (The fact that they found almost NO money on me was what pissed them off even WORSE)

The casino manager of Casino Windsor is probably the sorest loser I have ever encountered in my whole career!

Greektown has a fine HL room and MGM can be fine also. But $25 min at those games, 6d. I like GT.

You are within striking distance of some fine games, don't fret.

When will you be in the area?

I'm finishing up a 5 month work contract in northern Alberta then I am moving back for good. Supposedly I'm being granted some time off for the first week of July to go there as well.

The TH team was arrested and charged back when the place first opened around 1994. I've personally witnessed a few trespassings there, but they've all involved self-excluded persons that were playing. Since the OP has never been backed off before, I would think your style of play won't draw any more attention in the Detroit area.

I read the story about Tommy a week ago, it made me pretty nervous just from the level of ineptitude the casino's staff and "expert witness" showed, though I do I understand that 1994 and 2011 are much, much different times.

I don't know Tommy, although I WAS aware of his case at the time. MY incident happened a few years after his did. At least I was lucky enough to not get ARRESTED, even though that jackass of a casino manager was DEMANDING that the gaming agent DO so. Probably BECAUSE of the Tommy incident, the agent was smart enough to know that it was not a good idea to arrest someone without any evidence of illegal activity.

Casino Windsor did back me off. Of course I was employing a 160-1 spread to crush their games and played for a few days in a row, eight + hour sessions. Actually I think their games are quite fine for a beginner. Yes, they do offer H17, but that isn't so bad at the higher counts, and they have a million tables you can so easily wong around in. You might get a little dizzy from circling like a vulture.
