    yea, they would NEVER think to use some napkins to clean up a spill. instead, they’ll close down a money maker because that would be the smart thing to do.

    seriously, I have never seen them close a table a drink gets spilled.

    I have seen it a lot but I like to play when it is not crowded. Lots of empty spots at all but the lowest limit tables.

    I have showed up to felt that had a dark spot on it obviously from a spill.

    I wasn’t the spiller. In LV and AC, I’ve seen full glasses of wine spilled and it makes enough of a mess to close the table while they clean it, hair dryer it, etc.

    that guy is such a weirdo. I did buy the slap chop from him just cause of how stupid the presentation was.

    Gotcha. when pulling this move, spill water or soda. something with the least amount of stain and stickiness to prevent a table closure.

    AM has earned my respect. In case you never noticed most of the smartest people are considered weird by most people. They think differently so they seem weird. I never thought he was weird except for how much crap he would put himself through to stand up for his rights. If only more people had that courage.

    never heard anyone use the word “smart” to describe the inventor of slap chop and sham wow. do you also consider Billy Mays to be a genius? how about Ron Popeil? and stand up for what rights? the right to invent silly things and promote them awkwardly?

    To begin with; for the move to even work at all, it obviously has to be done at, or at least CLOSE to 1st base. When a drink is spilled at 1st base, the spill will usually also soak the felt in the spot right where the cards are slid out of the shoe. This almost ALWAYS causes the table to be closed.

    And that’s only ONE problem with this move. If someone here is dumb enough to attempt this move in the manner that it’s been described here, they’ll quickly learn how extremely rarely that it can be successfully pulled off. For every time it works to the point of actually getting the bet off, there will be probably 499 times that it turns out to be nothing more than a waste of time (and a perfectly good drink!). This wasted time would be much better off spent just sitting there & making money the conventional way.

    Sorry thought you were saying AM was a weirdo. Reconsider my last post as referring to AM. That was my intention. Never heard of the slap chop. If you would have said sham wow I would have understood you weren’t talking about AM.

    Well let’s not be so hasty to pass judgement on AM. I mean he does have a pic of a chimpanzee with a semi auto pistol pointing at ya!.. Just sayin………

    Also I love the shamwow guy, and Popeil, and only wish I had been born with their gift to push these crap products on the ploppies of the world…

    I must tell you, the Shamwow is not a crap product. I keep them on my boat to dry off, because it can be nasty cold when you are wet and moving at speed, especially in the spring or fall. With all the messing around with cocktail napkins and blow driers every time a drink is spilled, a Shamwow would pay for itself in EV to the casino the first time it is used.

    Never got the Slap Chop though, don’t cook enough.

  • Machinist

     

    I agree AM…the shamwow is great, Hey the pasta maker by popeil is neat, kinda fun to invite friends over and make different kinds of pasta.Years ago we used to have pasta nite every Thursday.

    Oh, yeah, the hair dryer. I’ve had them do that on my table, too, but they didn’t close it. It took a long time, too.

    Vince’s (the shamwow guy) gift of gab would come in handy talking the pit guy out of a $100 restaurant comp and a room for the night. Might even conjure up some match plays.

    You haven’t missed anything. It’s a joke! My wife had one and the spring flew the first time she used it. That was the end of that. She got it as a free gift at BJs when purchasing one of those never-need-sharpening knife sets. Looked the same, but may have been a different product.

    Another Move. Cheating or AP?

    Using the cut card to expose a card/cards. Cheating or AP?

    This move has been ruled by the courts to be cheating, and has already resulted in several convictions.
