cheers, nice casino story. you should have taken much more advantage of that situation, like really making 5k-10k till they figured out the issue.
was the dealer also taking part in the game playing for the house? it looks like that from your story.
when I went to a casino people didn't even know what texas hold'em was in Europe so I've no idea how they play it in these places. I've been to a couple of these newborn poker rooms and the clubs where just making profit by having people paying a fee to join the tables.
I'm glad you overcome your gambling demons, you could have been a compulsive gambler.
Were you getting paid something when you were a mod on BA? ever had a fight with other mods or site admin?
what's the most you haver paid for an escort? in euros.
As an ex legendary mod there was saying - enough for a bouquet every few months
Not paid really, just some coins from time to time.
I've actually never been in a real fight with other mods or admins, we've had several heated discussions, like really heated and many of them, but never a fight, or insults, or whatever.
It had dramatic turn arounds though, like one of the admins left the forum after a joint decision to keep the rules stricter in the livescore thread, which was a decision i was supporting big time, coz it had became a total mess, so he left the forum, which was disapointing tbh, the guy was a legend there and a great person.
Another turn around was me leaving the forum after a sick situation actually.
I was kinda friendly with one of the members, we were chatting on messenger, talking tips and bets and many other things from life outside betting, but at one point he kinda felt that being a buddy off board, he was granted permission to do whatever he wants in the forum. And cursing was the lightest of them all, there were racist statements, abusing other members, etc.
I warned him a few times, then banned him. For a limited period, then he came back and went apeshit again, so i banned him for a longer period (i didn't have rights for perma banning then yet).
So the guy tried to hack my FB, my messenger, my BA account, he posted all kinds of sick shit on my FB, like the typical internet warrior, he was coming with his buddies to Bulgaria to find me and kill me, that kind of funny mug crap, so i asked the admins to perm ban him from BA.
They said - if it's not happening here, we don't care.
I was disapointed, first because it starts from there and second because i gave them proof he was trying to hack my BA account.
So i was pissed and left. Then after a few years i went back, but really seldom, now i'm going from time to time as well.
