MVSeahog Posted February 5, 2010 Report Share Posted February 5, 2010 This is a momentous occasion. Well, kind of. It marks the 150th shoe tested/played with MVS+.This will be long because Iâ€™m in a chatty mood and I want to try to explain the how and why of my play on this shoe. If it makes sense to you, weâ€™re BOTH in big trouble I think!! Anyway, the wifey and friends decide late last night that they have a bunch of free play, match play, lose play, food and sweepstakes coupons that HAVE to be used by today. Evidently during the late night planning she forgot about a big dinner tonight with some city muckety-mucks that weâ€™re supposed to be at, center table and all that. To move this along, they decide to leave here at 8am to get a WHOLE HOUR in of slot play and then drive back to make this dinner. Well, I can get a shoe done in an hour for sure AND it would be the 150th test shoe so why not tag along and make it at least worth my time? Of course they completely forgot about putting gas in the car, school busses on country roads and the usual accident on US41 by the bait shop. But I digress. I usually walk around for 15-20 minutes or so to get myself â€œacclimatedâ€ to the casino and get settled down from the rush trip in. This time it took about 5 minutes so I wasnâ€™t really happy about that. As it turned out the shoe played nicely with only a few real decisions to make. Namely at hand 36 where my 3rd â€œ6â€ came up in the second column. Normally this would have me out of the shoe but it had been going well so I elected to make one more wager just to test the water. It loses, Iâ€™m done, it wins and I move on. It wins. Same decision at hand 38. Hand 41 is tricky. It loses and if I make the normal 2 unit wager next and it loses, Iâ€™m down to +5 and really didnâ€™t want to lose half the profit right there so I went with a 1 unit â€œtest the waterâ€ bet. Of course it lost. Make the next one a single too, now treading water lightly to try to sneak out a win. Nope, it wasnâ€™t to be. Another lost bet. This now puts me in a more traditional setting for me. Up +6 in the third column and ready to test for a single wager â€œflyerâ€ to see if I can continue on. Nope, not today. It loses the third bet and Iâ€™m done at +5. Hey! A hundred bucks profit is always good, right? The women wish they could have come out of there with a C-Note, I assure you! They were very quiet on the trip back home. Hereâ€™s the card in all its faded glory. I also ran it using PJâ€™s NU SAP and it scored well also. And for the record, the last 50 shoes running MVS+ have produced 39 wins, 11 losers and +234 units at a 78% win rate. This is slightly lower than the earlier 83% reported rates for the first 100 shoes but I think that may be due to a slight change in the wager pattern. Overall, for the 150 shoes, itâ€™s running at 83.4% and +975.MVS Quote What's an MVSeahog? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
