Well, They Sorta Got It Right (OT)

16

A lot of people here seem interested in my day job. Well, this was my day job for a number of years, before I morphed into, ahem, other things. I have heard different things about Johnson's actual ability, it allegedy is, as Hubie Brown would say, at a very high level. You'll never see it addressed in public, anyway. But I'll keep it simple. You can play basic strategy, which isn't that hard, you can negotiate the sweetheart deals that Johnson did (today's casino exec is anything but a casino guy, he's a hotel guy, a marketing guy, a finance guy, a real estate guy...they just think these places can print money, and never stop to figure that it's not quite that easy), and take the fluctuations, you have a huge edge with a 20% rebate. Simulate it yourself if you can. (If the Trop in AC did as they claimed, certainly they never would have even dealt to him in the first place, let alone still deal to him, where I think he's getting a 5% rebate now). But in the end, the casino beat itself. I've never seen a business where you can fuck up royally, blame it on the customer, and not only not get fired, you actually keep your job or even get promoted. But that's the casino biz in 2012. Hope you enjoy this, and we'll talk about me sometime during the playoffs. When I'm hopefully in Thailand, or Macau, or someplace like that. I may answer limited questions. Omerta, you know.
