Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

The screw-up thing is the guy doesn't even bother to say he ain't gonna update anymore. Makes everyone wait in anticipation. Just wrong.

You go busto. Fine, sh*t happens. It would make for a good ending.

Meh that's the story of pretty much every thread that dies. Life goes on, OP doesn't have an obligation to resolve a thread on an Internet forum as much as we wish he would.

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Keep hoping for another update because his story is a great one, and it is also one that doesn't get told often enough. He doesn't owe us anything, but I always hope to see something from him. His story a success story, and I wonder if people reading it realize that it is a tale of winning as a pro gambler.

I know right, as you paid him your money for updates he should feel a moral responsibility to inform you, a stranger, what he's doing.

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

Hey look don't get me wrong, I enjoyed reading his yearly exploits. It was good stuff. But he did say he was going to do an update around the time it was due. A bunch of people were anticipating it and these bumps keep pushing the topic to the head of the list. It's get frustrating reading all the "hope for" replies.

Perfect example, the Duke Nukem 10+ year vaporware mind screw. That was cruel.

If every time it's bumped someone new gets the chance to read this awesome thread, well it was worth bumping imo.

Yes, it might have meant some people wasted 3 seconds of their time.

But tough luck.
Quote myself for truth.

So pathetic the way people whine when this thread is bumped.

Remember people are joining 2+2 every day.

This could be the single most valuable/entertaining thread they could read on here and they would never find it if it wasn't bumped.

I'd guess most on here discovered this thread from a bump. For me I found it after a year 5 bump and have been stalking Dynasty since…I mean following...

Re: Three Years in Las Vegas

I just spent half of my work day reading every Dynasty post from the beginning and skimming all of the love/hate posts. There was a weird sadness when the 2013 update didn't happen. Such a cool thing to read about from so many years ago continuing on and on for so long.

Thanks for the sweat!


sorry for the bump :/

The interest new readers of the thread get > the annoyance people expecting an update get from a bump IMO

Count me in that group. I've read the entire thread over the past few days. Great read (minus the few derails).

Ie if you win 10K many times you just marginally win after airfare and hotel and food costs plus rent where you live.
Hah this guy had it figure out a long time ago
