I have two distinct lives. One in the trenches of low-budget film and television, the other in professional gambling. Because of the feast-or-famine nature of show business I need a reliable income... gambling. So here you will read about both worlds. Enjoy!

In this show you discussed the passing of Jacky Gaughan and said he ushered in the era of good odds for gamblers in Vegas: agreed. But your co-host said this continues to present day. Really? Las Vegas, with its 6-5 games and other poor rules, may have the worst blackjack in the country. Its craps tables pay 3-4-5 times odds but 10 times odds is available in most other casinos. The 100% + games such as full-pay deuces and Double Bonus are practically extinct. The few that remain are low denomination and for little or no players club points. Caesars properties have some of the highest poker room rakes in the country. Casino promotions are not waht they used to be and it is becoming more and more difficult to get match play coupons.
