Each stack is 20 10 chips, so not that much. But it looks dramatic, and it was nice considering I bought in with $200.

My biggest score in LV was walking in with $500 and walking out with $13000 - playing black on roulette. The email from the MGM host next day was marvellous:


I would like to thank you for playing at the MGM Grand this past trip. I would also like to invite you back out for a complimentary stay with us in the future. I hope you had a great time and I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to contact me at anytime if there is ever anything I can assist you with.

Am I up or down? Well, the honest truth is I am quite a lot up, but it is pure luck, although I am smart enough to walk away with cash and not just tilt it back. I actually founded my last company with $12.5K of that $13K.

Sorry to hear you are in difficulties.

Roughly what are your income and outgoings per annum? I ask because the Kickstarter target is only $25K. Does $25K do anything meaningful to rescue your business? Have you sold any equity to raise money without owing a loan?

That is one of the best Hellmuth tilt stories I ever heard. Gus nailed that one on, brilliant.

BTW I have much respect for Hellmuth, he is actually a very gifted player and boy has he changed his game in the past 2-3 years to adjust to the new internet players like Dwan. Always remember that HU match between Dwan and Hellmuth where Durrr sucks out and then schools Phil on internet math. But Phil learned from that and a year or so later we started seeing New Phil - same amateur dramatics, but now with steely-eyed poker pro 2.0.

I am currently involved in a small space company developing a moon rocket (launcher plus spacecraft). Literally. Were you engaged in the Ranger program, and if so what was the biggest challenge of that program?
