Thanksgiving holiday my wife and I are playing in Shreveport LA. This one dude was playing Black and Purple chips with his son also playing. It is a $5.00 table for cryin' out loud. During a reshuffle (6D) the dealer is asking the obligatory "where you from", "what do you do". She asks this guy and he says he doesn't do anything. She presses. He then announces he plays Blackjack for a living. Wife and I 'bout fell out of our chairs.
The pit had been watching him every time black and purple hit the felt.
Funny thing is he flat bets red then all of a sudden throws out 5 black or 2 purple. I'm counting and there's absolutely no correlation to these big bets and shoe composition. Meanwhile his son splits sixes against a dealer nine
, dad says nothing. Of course the guy has to keep reaching into his pocket for more dough. For him and his son
. Then he starts criticizing others play. And I'm wonging at the table and it is really drivin' him crazy. Some crap about "ya can't win no money if you won't play". I was ready for the "flow of the cards comment".
Eventually the pit just ignored him and his Blacks and Purples. He had to be down five or six thousand easy. Friggan' Hilarious
