"Of course, you should never actually drink while counting cards."

Really? I'll have to try that sometime.

What do you drive? An Army tank?

$400 to come from Reno? Maybe if you stop at that little restaurant in Wells too!

Bella's is pretty cool, it's a truckstop/restaurant with a counter, you sit down and the waitress gives you a menu. Then the waitress gives you another menu, and she's on it! They have a photo album and they'll wake up any girl you want, she'll cook you dinner and then take you to her room. I being a monkey only had something to eat, as any further interaction would constitute bestiality. They told me if it was black girls I was looking for, they're across the street at Donna's.

Outside they have a sign that says "Wifi Available Here." Somebody changed the second 'i' to an 'e'.

Wells is the intersection of I-80 and the highway that takes you up to Jackpot NV. There used to be a BJ game in Wells too, another truckstop game, 4D with a $25 max, it was just like playing a game dealt on a kitchen table.

Jack, I went on a Saturday night and they had like 8 dancers. I'm sure bused in from Salt Lake for the weekend. The hottest thing going was more wifes/girl friends were getting down and dirty with the dancers and tipping some bucks! It was a fun evening......

Default Hidden Costs

Depreciation and other car expenses come to about $0.50 per mile. The IRS may have the number at $0.55 per mile. The number may be as high as $.075 per mile for all the cool rides we obviously have down to $.025 per mile for the old wrecks casino types drive!

Re: the article

The particular casino where he received the tap has really been eyeing counters much more lately, almost like cops trying to meet a ticket quota at the end of the month. There are open conversations among the PCs, and it's almost getting competitive between them, especially on swing and early grave. It's odd that it occurs there more than the other two properties under the same owner, but it does.

That said, if you're spreading red to green, or even 25-200, you'll be fine, especially short term. As stated in the article, there are many, many, MANY, regulars spreading wildly in big negative counts.

BTW, that mustache-wearing boss he indicated in his article is one of the nicer people you'll ever meet. Don't fault the 'stache!

What casino did he receive the tap at? I couldn't tell from the article.
