Hi Everyone

I just returned home from my trip to NYC. I stopped in AC for 2 days.

I was with family so playing time was limited. My goal was to double

my bankroll ($500).

I played parts of 6 shoes in 4 different casinos. I played NOR, but found

myself in S40 most of the time. It was hard to find tables under $15 min

so I played $10 units with a 3, 4, 5 loop.

My results: +27, -8, +3 (Harrah's) -7 (Bally's) +16 (Trump Plaza) +41 (Trop)

for a total of +72 (before comm). Subtract about 10 for comm and I

accomplished my goal.

A few observations: I have never seen AC so dead. I was there Tues and Wed

but I have never seen the casinos so empty. Even the Boardwalk had very little

traffic on beautiful days. There was no problem getting a seat in any of the casinos

I visited.

In Harrah's I was the only player most of the time. They had 2 tables

open all the time and no players. They allow the players to handle the cards, so

the cards were always new. No toteboards.

Bally's had 3 tables open. One was almost full. I went to an empty table and

the dealer told me that if I asked the pit boss he would make the table non-smoking.

I played most of a shoe and it was streaky/choppy/streaky and I was lucky to get out

-7. No toteboards.

At Trump they had many tables, half comm, half none. Only the non-comm tables

had toteboards. They use $20 checks instead of $25 so it was a bit confusing.

I was at a table with 4 other players. I was up and down, then hit a run of 9B

to save the shoe. I walked thru Caesar's and they had all non-comm games, half of

which had toteboards.

Trop had 3 active tables with players allowed to handle cards. I sat at an empty table

and told the dealer to just deal straight. The game featured ZZ runs of 6 and 13.

I was up 49 and got out at 41 knowing I made my goal.

This was my first real test of NOR. I think it went rather well. See you at

the tables.

Tx Paul for your TR.

I was in AC in 2007; even id didn't impressed me it was a bit more animated.

I remember that in Trump Plaza I had a discussion with the dealer and pit boss as free hands didn't were allowed.

I asked if for the casino was more rewarding to pay a dealer for not-to-deal cards...

...so things are different now.

In another forum there was written something similar, even worst, with many homeless all around and some people robbed near the boardwalk.

However LV it's my first choice! Hope to come back in 2012.

ciao

Excellent job Paul! Don't surprise me none! Paul is a serious player guys and a pleasure to play with.

Yeah, AC is dead. Just yesterday it was listed on TV news as one of the worst hit cities in the US.

The depression has certainly hit BTC. Back in the '90s we had ten times the members we have now and we charged ten times more.

Andrea is right about AC. It's a dangerous place. If you go there DON'T venture off the boardwalk. Even the boardwalk is dangerous after hours. No need to anyway. That whole town doesn't even have a grocery store.

The casinos are your worst enemy but they are also your only friends.
