    Thanks for sharing this type of thread with us Mickey. This is absolutely fascinating stuff.

    Does being an obnoxious drunken mental patient help with living this type of daily uncertainty in life? I love the day-in-the-life writing.

    This stuff is so great as always. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you sharing your knowledge as always. Please don’t stop and please do keep it up.

    It’s obvious you and a bunch of other mental patients here think your something special. I’m sorry to say after reading many of your past and present posts, I’ve concluded you’re just a complete fool.

    I wouldn’t worry though, there appears to be plenty more fools here who seem to be envious of your great accomplishments. One could only imagine their present life style.

    My bet is Mick is living life Exactly the way he wants. Anyone lucky enough to be able to do that is winning. Now there's some words of wisdom. Especially if the slot play results drop any further being homeless is the next stage.

    Whatever, his shit is interesting.

    Is it all true?

    Does it really matter?

    Give the people what they want: bread and circuses.

    Blackhole, other than Charlie Sheen, does anyone really live life they way they want? Even Donald Trump, our next prez (and we deserve him), admits he's overweight.

    I mean, if you're going to judge and evaluate everybody's raison d'etre, at least put a real name to your musings so you can be evaluated by outside parties. What's the fun in putting down non-anonymous people while staying anonymous? You come across like an old Saints fan sitting in the stands with a paper bag over his/her head. Have some cajones, state your real name, and let folks X-Ray your life for broad accomplishments and deep thoughts.

    Blackhole, not sure where your envy of APers comes from but Mickey is not broke, will not go broke and is living exactly how he wants. Smart people do that. They continue to find ways to make money in an ever changing world. Just like successful business owners. Some get it, the majority don't. It's why we will always have saps living paycheck to paycheck blaming the system for life choices they made. You sound like one of these people, never risking anything for the rewards out there. We all have x numbers of years, why spend them envious of others doing what they love?

    Can you show me anything where ones dark miserable job is a cause of alcoholism? Even if you can please show us where a high percentage of AP's are indicating there's a dark miserable side. I'll say for most(not all) it's the opposite.
    If so I guess being in the medical field especially as a doctor is a really dark miserable job since its in the top 5. I'm not sure what deep dark miserable side falls upon sho makers but it must need some serious mind dulling. Higher rates of alcoholism wouldn't have anything to do with education, background or wherever you grew up at? LV doesn't even make the top 20 cities, yet reno makes the top 10.

    Of course AP includes alcoholism just like all other professions. But guess what? It's the 9 to 5 jobs that put people at a much higher risk things like Construction workers, Roofers, carpet cleaners, food service, sailors, minors, "Mad Men"
    I'm not 100% sure what ones definition of a 9 to 5 er would be but, musicians Doctors, lawyers are among the top 10.

    MC represents a very small percentage of AP's. Discounting poker players Most AP's start out AP at an age above the average 9 to 5 er. Most AP's actually avoid the bottle knowing their inhibitions might cause them to do something risky to their bankrolls or make mistakes. If I had to guess alcoholism is lower among AP's than the average occupation. NON AP gamblers are far more likely to be alcoholics than Advantage Players. It seems like the harder your job is the more likely it is you'll be an alcoholic.

    At least with AP if you are an alcoholic you don't risk the lives of co-workers and people you're supposed to be helping on the JOB like drunk pilots, Doctors, construction workers and I certainly wouldn't want any perverted drunk glorified male ball washers fondling me as I am incapacitated in the hospital.

    Yet again you're spinning shit while cherry picking one extreme example to fit you're MO. It's an ongoing pattern with you(everyone sees that, even one of your internet buddies said so himself) Should I assume all the medical field (Ball washers) are like you? God let's hope not.

    Is MC REALLY an alcoholic, LarryS?

    Certainly he's not your prototypical bum, passed out in the gutter with a bottle of Mad Dog in his paw.

    MC reports he can and does control his drinking, which I find quite telling.

    The guy loves to get drunk, but he doesn't do it all the time, especially when he's out and about "working."

    He may be better characterized as "a binge drinker with alcoholic tendencies."

    Regardless as to label, the guy can control it when he puts his mind to it, and that's a good thing.

    Mantle was the best switch hitter baseball has ever seen. He was also an alcoholic. Is there a correlation between baseball and alcoholism? No, just like there isn't between AP'ing and alcoholism.

    So I'm a binge drinker. So what?

    What gets me is the imagination of some people. BH has me going broke. That will never happen. But here is something I can do that BH can't. If I had to I could take a twenty dollar bill and turn it into a five figure bankroll within a few months.
    I know what plays to start on and what plays to graduate to as the BR increases.

    I have the skill to do that. But it doesn't mean I don't have flaws in other areas of my life.

    Mickey, I don’t have you going broke. As long as you could get around I’m sure you’ll survive.

    I’m 64 and think you’re right there or close with me. I’m fully retired and my monthly social security benefits would be enough to support me and my spouse for about a week. Unless you retire a multi-millionaire, it’s all about your past and what you did that dictates your golden year’s quality of life.

    I already have a problem remembering things, and I didn’t burn out too many brain cells soaking them in alcohol or drugs.

    I would never wish anyone bad things. It annoys me how people praise your achievements like you own the goose that lays the golden eggs.

    Kudos for what you do, but I’m certainly not one that would want to switch places with you.

    One could characterize MC as a sort of twenty-first century hard rock miner, mining the gold and silver from the Hard Rock and other casinos.

    Yeah, that's a stretch.

    I also enjoyed reading about Mickeys road trip. I think he’s an interesting character to chat with. (when he’s sober) But, if he wants to come to an open forum and curse everyone out like the drunken fool he is, then expect everyone to forget what he said because he was drunk is more pathetic then the fools here who look up to him.

    He certainly doesn’t have to justify himself to me. Reading many of his other posts here and at other forums before most if not all already banned him for being a drunken fool, I’m pretty sure I understand where he’s coming from.

    Mickey before you get drunk again and respond to my posts with endless profanity and your still sober – FUCK-YOU ASSHOLE!

    His insult posts when drunk are funny.

    His other posts when sober are informative and interesting.

    Separate the chaff from the wheat.

    Who mentioned looking up to anybody, it was a decent read and insightful of a pro slot player. Weren't you the one begging on forums for some slot help prior to a AC trip not so long ago? Or maybe it was somebody else, who cares. Who gives a fuck what he says when he's drunk, he could tell me to go fuck myself, I wouldn't hold it against him, even if he said it sober, cos' it wouldn't bother me, you pissy al' c**t.

    Every alcoholic and drug addict will tell you its all under control.
    For all you know MC could be constantly under the influence when he posts here, and only on occasion goes on a hateful racist rant.

    Maybe he is a part time racist ranter...and a full time alcoholic.

    Glamorizing addicted people is not my thing. I dont look at them and say to myself..oh how nice that they are doing what they want and cant handle a 9-5 job like me...they are amazing
    I never met or heard of a drug addict or an active alcoholic that was happy. So, far be if for me to bestow a label of "happy" on an alcoholic.
    Just because an alcoholic will do things to amuse you doesnt extrapolate into their happiness. Just because an alcoholic or drug addict does things to make you laugh....doesnt mean they themselves are giddy with laughter.

    More likely they are tortured drowning their physical and or psychological pain in alcohol and or drugs.

    Phillip Seymour Hoffman was unhappy enough in life to need to put heroin into his veins...and died for it. Maybe he too was a great guy at a party. Maybe he could lay off the shit when he had a job, or maybe he just adjusted the dose so he was in a constant "high"...just enough to quell his unhappiness. So what, so maybe he layed off for a few weeks....did that make him less of an addict? Obviously not...obviously he is just as dead as guy face down in a crack den. And I cant say that one is happier than the other.

    If you told me before he died that he was doing heroin...I would not say..."oh he is so cool, he is a multi millionaire, and he gets to act when he chooses.......yes he is living the good life....and he appears so happy...BECAUSE HE SAYS SO.....BECAUSE IN EVERY INTERVIEW HE SEEMED HAPPY.

    I wouldnt do that with PSH and I dont do that with MC.

    2 things can be equally true. MC can do what he says , and live a life void of 9-5 responsibility, and he earns money to live on doing what he says he does. And also he could be an unhappy alcoholic that is kidding you and himself when he tells you he can quit whenever he wants.

    His rants tell me there is unhappiness. His drinking tells me there is unhappiness. And I dont get amused by someone elses unhappiness like others here seem to like to do.

    You will never hear me tell a drug addict or an alcoholic...."you are so cool, so carefree...i wish I was like you""you amuse me, and I know you mean no harm""leave him alone, he is so funny when he is drunk"....................no, not me.

    Once someone admits to being a "controlled" alcoholic......all I can say is....."arent they all"

    the thing about alcoholics/drug addicts is that they lie and are in constant denial.l They never drive drunk....until they kill someone and then they will tell you that THAT was the one time they drove when they were drunk. It was just an unlucky break. It was just that one time.

    And for all the drunks that claim that "one time" mantra after killing someone.....there are others that were always in the background smiling and telling him how funny and harmless he is...as the casket is lowered into the ground and as the drunk sits in jail......the people that enabled him with accolades go on with their lives.....and will look for another drunk to amuse them

    yeah until he and his buddies that get your accolades, hit an run your mother and wife......then all of a sudden "judging" doesnt seem so bad.

    Then all of a sudden his type isnt so amusing

    Then all of a sudden 'live however you want" philosophy doesnt seem all that glorious.

    When I was an immature young adULT, I thought the same as you. THe alcoholic was just so funny and amusing, and gave e joy.

    Till he died.

    Very Lucky he didnt take others with him....but that was pure luck.

    So I speak from experience...and you speak from the vantage point of a selfish immature kid in their early 20's....just like I did once.

    eventually you will learn that the behavior of MC is not to be encouraged, enjoyed, ignored, or enabled.

    So you know for a fact that he drives drunk, when he stated he walks to his local bar, leaving his keys behind. How come you know more about it than him?

    So you knew somebody who died too young due to alcoholism and it left a marked impression on you and now your anti-booze. Everybody has a tragic story they could tell, doesn't mean they try and project it on every situation. It was your experience, not mine, not MC's, you live it, you own it, don't project your fears / horror / abjection on to others without justification.

    I'm use to being around alcoholics, but anyway I thought Micky was more of a binge drinker. Maybe 5 weeks on the road looking for slots, or the simple act of gambling builds up the pressure and when he's through, he likes to have a drink (a celebratory few) to unwind and a rant. I don't agree with his rants, but they don't bother me either, I understand the situation and don't judge.

    This thread wasn't about booze or drinking. it was about his slot adventures, until some wanted to psycho-babble-analyses the poster, who appointed you judge and jury? There's a lot to enjoy here, he too long in the tooth to need anybodies encouragement, I don't see why he should be put in a situation of having to defend himself in what was a decent thread.

    “Any advantage player experts able to ante up just one play for next weekend 09/17/16 at Atlantic City? Forget card counting and video poker, I’m asking for slot play AP, where I just put in the money and eventually become a winner.

    I’m not asking to give up the golden goose, just pm me one play I could make any profit regardless how big or small that may be. In fact, I’d be happy to know after hours of play I could just break even and collect on comps.

    I’d be happy to travel to any casino in A.C.”


    While I’m at a casino always playing poker tournaments I’ll play some video poker when I have down time or get knocked out early. I never play slot games.

    Did you really think I expected a response? However, one AP did contact me and in the future we might be able to hook up. I’m too old to travel all over the place or have any desire to become an AP’er. It sounds like a lot of work and I’m done working. I’m at the stage of enjoying what’s left of my life and enjoy watching the growth of my family.

    When I asked for AP help here and W.O.O. I even posted that I would have been happy just to watch any AP walk into a casino and become a winner. The AP didn’t have to even talk to me or explain how he or she knew what game to play.

    So Einstein, I was just looking for proof not for lessons. I know that was a chance for many to suggest I waned to learn like yourself. I didn't want to post it as asking for proof, because we already know the brick wall that would have hit.

    Regardless, the responses were all similar to M.C.'s without the profanity. Bottom line is can't confirm anything or any play as of today. So, we'll have to just except what's being told as fact.
