Ever have your own stalker at the tables?

    I was recently playing and an awful player sat down at my heads-up table. He made some really smart plays like doubling for less ($5 double on a $25 bet) 9 v 7 and he pulled a 2. After he lost, he asked me if that was a good play and I made the mistake of telling him doubling for less is always a bad idea, cuz you're limiting yourself to one card.

    After the count went neg, I wonged out and started another fresh shoe at another table, heads up. Guess who comes, too. The casino was unusually empty for the number of tables open, so I did a lot of jumping around. My "partner" followed along each time.

    Of course his bad play didn't bother me, but he was as slow as hell, and that did bother me.

    Ever experience anything like this? How do you dissuade someone like this from joining your table? This place only had MSE tables.

    You could start a conversation on religion with him, and then reveal a need, revealed by God himself, to convert this man to your chosen religion, bet that'll work:):laugh:

    Persuade that person to join your cult.

    Persuade that person to join your multi-level Ponzi scheme.

    Vomit on said person.

    Blow smoke in that general direction.

    Reveal that you are not wearing any underwear. Don't stop there, proceed to explain why you believe that underwear is unnecessary.

    "blessed underwear" monogrammed with M.R., a certain presidential hopeful's initials.

    In a very polite tone: "Do you mind if I play heads up?" works for me 95% of the time.

    maybe he was sent to slow you down or take away some of your action ,and or analyze your play??But it wouldnt make sense .why would the casino waste resource to do that?

    Now there's a thought :eek:

    Let's not let paranoia get the best of us.

    Hired shills. Don't trust strange women who are trying to get too friendly to play at your table in some places. I suppose men could be untrustworthy as well.

    You've had better luck with that than me. I'd say it works about .95% of the time. And then there's the guy who sits down near the end of the shoe when the count is high and asks if you mind if he jumps in. When you ask him if he minds waiting until the next shoe because it's almost done he'll say "Sure, I don't mind waiting"...and then jumps right in anyway!

    Can't blame him. You initiated a very beautiful friendship-to-be.

    It happened to me a lot. I frequently gave people wrong signal that I need a friend. But the truth is that most people on Earth are lonely.

    Why can't you be a mentor to him?

    these topics are known for working on and gathering idiots, not getting rid of him. Would have been the right answer to "how do I exploit him?" but close. more effective if you add some negativity. Bring up controvertial issues then whatever he says tell him hes wrong and story stupid for thinking that

    I know of one particular store in PA that hires shills to watch suspected APs. This was verified from a friend of mine who works at this store

    Shills are generally not well-paid or particularly bright.
  15. So, it is vaguely unnerving to me how many problems can be solved in the world of APs by vomiting on the appropriate person and/or object (see pg 96 of the book for a further example of the utility of vomit).

    :) I blame Greasy John.
  17. Me too, but you have to show the man who became a legend for being a dirty (quite literally) bastard at least a little love.

    That was a very moving and beautiful thought on your part, worthy of serious consideration.:grin:

    But some are gorgeous.

    Didn't some of the MIT guys fall for that?

    In answer to the question posed by the thread title: sort of. I wouldn't say he was my own stalker.
