Re: My home casino

It read as if it was a real answer to me.

This thread is sort of the ugly Cousin IT of Home Poker, or a bad auto accident scene. You know you shouldn't look, but you just can't HELP yourself...

Re: My home casino

Dare I ask why you quoted YOURSELF verbatim, with your second (and last?) post?

Forget Where in the World is Carmen Diego (or whomever the character is)- we need a Tworooks map

You've got balls dude. Unless you live in a major city (and maybe even then) you can plan on getting raided eventually. I know you said that you didn't want to hear about the legal stuff. I point it out because it may be a good idea to keep the majority of the money off-site. Also, you could let your best customers, after they have proven that they are long time customers that can be trusted, play on credit. This also keeps the impact of a raid to a minimum. The underground card rooms of NY after being raided and reraided went to an almost exclusive credit system. Worth looking into.
Another idea would be instead of taking a rake, charge time for the seats in the ring games. It is only slightly less profitable than a rake, the players love it because they know up front what they have to make to beat the charge, and legally it sounds better than a rake.
Dealers are a touchy subject for a couple of reasons. One, dealers talk. People talk about their jobs! Your customers on the other hand have it in their best interest to keep their mouthes shut. The less people that know about your ventures the better. Two, it is one more expense. And three, you have to deal with disgruntled employees. Again, the Mayfair Club, which was the model for the club in Rounders, had a "deal you own" setup (as did most of the other underground card rooms). It just works better.
Hope this helped. Good luck in your ventures.
A classic example of why this thread is legendary.

I can't tell if this poster is joking or not. Are people still actually trying to give real answers to this thread?

I thought it had degenerated to shameless bumps, speculation as to where tworooks is now, and the debate over how hot is mom is.

Granted, this was his 7th post and he probably just wanted to hit a higher profile thread before hiding in uNL for awhile.
Oh it was real. That or totally unfunny. See here's a free tip to anyone reading and considering posting a funny reply. Funny implies that jokes are involoved. I'll illustrate:

Funny-"Tworooks, I suggest having your mom serve drinks, it's free and she'll be happy to see you making something of yourself."

Not Funny-"You're gonna need drinks, I'd get a wide variety, plus you'll need snacks, I'd just make a few pizzas or order out, you'll make it back in the rake no problem."

Hope that helps.

Re: My home casino

Okay, I wasn't joking...my bad. I actually posted a reply before 1) realizing how old the post was 2) realizing that it was the norm to poke fun at this guy and 3) came to my senses and realized how obsurd this really is.

I just got excited by the fact that someone may actually try this. I wonder if he ever got it off the ground?

Okay, I will try for a funny. Here goes.

He may have to adjust for the cost of sippy cups for his friends.

my opinion is we should start a foundation that all of us can make donations to....
Or just hit up some of the bigger-name charitable foundations. I'm sure tworooks' community-mindedness is evident to all. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would be particularly promising given its benefactor's affinity for the Mirage $3/6 game.

Re: My home casino

this saddens me that we havnt herd from him. really i would like to know after reading the first 12 pages and realizing he hasnt been back so reading the last 20 would just be a waste of my time. I would honestly like to see where this kids life has gone. Maybe he tried and is now serving time. Highly unlikely though. Come on tworooks please comeback and tell us what happend?

Re: My home casino

adam-

Did you get a home game set up?

Can you fill in some of the gaps in the thread.

Thanks for coming out as it must be cathartic.

I don't believe that you are actually him. Why don't you just sign in under tworooks, if you do that you will be 2+2 history, why change names.
