    LOL. Sorry, jbs. I didn't think my tears were splashing on you.

    Jbs, I don't know if you're recreational or serious or know anything about sports betting, but seriously, blathering on about parlay calculators for sports bets is like taking a blackjack chart to a 6/5 table. It's fine if that's what you want to do. But don't sell yourself as a gambling math whiz while doing it.

    Unless every number on that parlay is the best you could get at any shop, it's idiotic and lazy. Just flat-out wrong. And if you're in LV, you're talking 10 easy access shops. Online, at least half a dozen for a normal player. Not likely you've optimized your wagering doing that. The sheer nonchalant laziness of it is what annoys the hell out of me.

    A few posts back I mentioned Wizard's weird proclivity to watch bugs getting zapped. Here are his thoughts on the subject. What a man!

    Freddy,

    I am not a math guy. I have friends who taught college probability and other math courses, so I rely on them if I have math questions. The poster tableplay has been helpful with me and has pointed me in the right direction many times so I can at least ask the right questions. So, because I'm not a math guy, I never had reason to think that something Shackleford was doing vis-à-vis gambling was flat out wrong. I simply didn't know.

    But, like many things, when someone starts discussing things in one's wheelhouse, then one can figure out if they know what they're doing in that specific area.

    The use of parlays on a regular or recommended basis in sports betting is about as correct as 2+2=5. If you have discussions about 6/5 blackjack and you're a "gambling expert," at some point you have an obligation, I think, to point out how bad the 6/5 is as a bet. If you discuss sports parlays, at some point you have to mention that they are stupid, lazy bets if you purport to be a "gambling expert."

    So this is the first time I can look at posts by Shackleford and roll my eyes. He's supposed to be a gambling expert. And it's not like "parlay betting is stupid" is a new concept that was just uncovered last month. It's a fundamental blanket truth, with very rare exceptions.

    So he's dead wrong about something. No big deal. People claiming to be expert muck things up every day. But here's what's amazing, and it's exactly what you said:

    Nobody over there has called him out on it. Now it simply cannot be that this hasn't come up before. I find that virtually impossible, like 2+2=5 not being pointed out as wrong. So why would nobody say, "Hey, Dietz is probably correct on this. Maybe parlay betting is dumb, if you step back and look at it?" Nobody says anything.

    That, to me, is what is amazing.

    The problem, long-term, is that this is something I'm qualified to point out as wrong. The 98% of stuff I'm not in any way expert at, he could be just as wrong, and I wouldn't know it.

    It was only a matter of time before one of the WoV compulsive, degenerate gamblers started a thread wanting to bet on the Coronavirus. Is anyone surprised at the lengths that they would go to feed their addiction? The thread starter was immediately told "this is a sick post, man."

    The thread didn't get a lot of responses. Faster than DrunkDear could ask the way to the nearest bar...Wizard/Sad Shack closed it. Did the "man of integrity" suddenly become compassionate about the misfortunes of others or did the subject hit a little too close to home? Isn't he married to a Chinese woman since no American woman would have him?

    Shame Dr SOOPOOP didn't get to regale the forum with his expert medical opinion. Maybe throw in how great his son is...how great his ex wife is as he thinks about her while he's with the new one. Oh...don't forget the portfolio. He has a portfolio...and he's a millionaire. And the latest...he's spending $500 a night to stay in Puerto Rico. What a guy.

    Good old WoV mod Bitch Bum Blabs keeps on doing what she does best...making a fool of herself. This time it's in the "Sexual Assault At The Venetian" thread. Word is a woman was raped and someone started the thread.

    Face, the only rational mod over there, suggests that being armed would be a deterrent to a would be rapist. Member sabre responded to Face's post and used the words "gun nut." Both these guys are 10 year forum members are most certainly are familiar with each other. There is not a shred of doubt that sabre was razzing the affable Face. Not a shred.

    Along comes Bitch Bum Blabs sticking her nose where it doesn't belong...giving sabre a warning. She the has the nerve to rattle off some nonsense about political comments....aimed at Face. A clearly miffed Face kept his cool and took the high road while "sticking to his guns." Taking the high road is something Blabs could never do.

    After mulling it over for 4 hours....the useless, compulsive lying, colossal failure of a mod tries to walk it back. Too late. The cow is out of the barn. Time to put that old cow out to pasture...or at least suspend her for insulting Face and disrespecting his position as a mod.

    This is a serious discussion about a poor women who was sleeping in her own hotel room that was brutally raped. It didn't take Wizard/Sad Shack long to weigh in. His contribution? He hijacked the thread and told the same stupid story about his hotel room in NY being mistakenly assigned to someone else after he was already in it. How many times is he going to bore them with that snoozer?

    Helloooo. A woman was raped. In the same hotel that Wizard/Sad Shack was fired from for....oh right he won't say. Is it just me or is this guy always complaining about something? And it's never his fault. Just last week he was crying about checking in to the Riverside in Laughlin. Wonder who he went there with. Does it rhyme with leather?

    A woman was raped? So what? Someone knocked on Sad Shack's door in NY. That's definitely something to hijack the thread for.

    just wondering here.

    do you put on your resume that you spent thousands of hours and all the research time within this thread attacking WizardofVegas website?

    it is a major contribution to the first amendment as well as your resume no?

    Freddy may be a little over-the-top invested, but after just a teensy bit of interaction with the Wiz, I see where freddy gets his motivation. Shackleford is essentially running an ego-sanctuary under the auspices of being a gambling expert helping folks. In actuality, he's a failed gambler with some math expertise, proselytizing for the casino industry. Failed gamblers with math expertise are a dime a dozen. He has expertise in helping people play properly and lose. That is not a gift from the gods. But it is a way to get an offshore casino to buy your site.

    The site really is a "cool kids" low-end Mensa club with certain rules behind the curtain. What bothers freddy isn't the rules; it's that they are not the rules presented to the public. I get that.

    Shackleford really isn't that big a deal. But he's assembled a group that creates an illusion on that site. Its his site. What do you expect? Away from that site, he's simply a failed gambler who teaches people how to play properly and lose. Or in the case of sports betting, not play properly and lose. Get him a trophy.

    Great summation, redietz. Let me add that it's the uneven enforcement of his rules that irk people. Rules cunningly and specifically crafted to be vague and open to any interpretation that he needs. Rules for the sole purpose of being used as 'gotcha' moments against anyone who dares to disagree...who dares to be better versed on a subject or who dares to upset the shallow, insecure people who rule that fiefdom.

    Look, it's no secret that Shackleford/Sad Shack appears to present with symptoms of multiple personality disorders...always craving something beyond his grasp. It must be frustrating. The one that jumps out is Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Someone on WoV even posted the test for it a couple of weeks ago. Does anyone think that was a coincidence? Anyone interested can look up NPD. It's no laughing matter. I truly feel for the people around him that have to endure it.

    possibly if all you ban members of that website submitted to the wiz and offered oral sex or perhaps some whipped creme on his thingy and suck it off at Don Laughlin's casino the riverside in laughlin he loves so much (at his own admission, no?), he just might reinstate you in the forums management?

    twink about it peeps. might just get you a spot on his management team! then you can suspend your enemies like axelwolf and evenbob and your buddy fleastiff. Right?

    Well, Blackjack 1010, I remember there being a Suggestion that banned Members Donate like $1,000 to WOV in order to be reinstated and even ONE offense gets them rebanned and they don't get the $1,000 back.

    he copy and pastes a handful of his lines over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over,

    far as john patrick, he read a couple of books on the way down to atlantic city on the bus, paid $25 for the bus ticket and receive a couple rolls of quarters form the casino when he got off that bus the way they did back in the 1980s.

    he is quite old you can tell by the way he types and misspells almost a word or two in every sentence.

    I don't know how many people would pay $1,000 just to be reinstated and still run the risk of being rebanned for even ONE offense like inadvertently hijacking a thread (which would usually be a Suspension)and then lose the $1,000, but it was an interesting suggestion.
