    Wow! Thank you all! I don't know what to say, except that we all help one another here and I always enjoy reading reports of our members having success. I suspect that there are more success stories for our members than are actually reported due to privacy or modesty concerns (i.e. they don't want to blow their own horns). It's a good feeling to be the one who's success is being reported. Thanks again to everyone.

    I think Lefty's signature was quite appropriate this time around.

    The skill is to have yourself in position to take advantage of Lady Luck when she smiles on you

    A couple of 2/1 blackjacks on strategically large bets played a big role during the semi finals and at the final table.

    Unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Not enough leave balance at work. :(

    Dammit. My firm intent was to show up at Fallsview and surprise a few folks but it ain't gonna happen. Some knucklehead was trying to jumpstart his SUV, didn't know it was in reverse, it started up just fine when he crossed the starter posts with a screwdriver - and it rocketed backwards (with nobody in it) into my tiny little car. Got another car but do not yet trust it enough to try a trip that far.

    Good luck at Fallsview for all of our friends who play it!!!

    That would have been a great surprise! I'm disappointed that you won't be able to make it. That's an extreme stroke of bad luck! Next one is Wednesday November 23.

    Sorry to here about your misfortune. I risk making light of it, only because of our friendship. If anyone was able to video this event I doubt if it could be watched without laughing.
