        Now the media are just taunting us with their tall tales about Stephen Paddock, the alleged Las Vegas shooter. Reputedly serious news organizations are claiming that he made a living playing video poker. That's like claiming someone made a living smoking crack.
        The media are either doing PR for the gambling industry or they don't want anyone considering the possibility that Paddock was using gambling to launder money.

        NBC News reports, with a straight face: "Las Vegas gunman earned millions as a gambler." A Los Angeles Times article is headlined, "In the solitary world of video poker, Stephen Paddock knew how to win." The story says that Paddock's gambling "was at least a steady income over a period of years."

        I don't know all the ins and outs of Paddock's life, but that's a lie.

        How do reporters imagine casino owners make a living? Any ideas on how all those glorious lobbies, lights, pools, and fountains are paid for? How do they think Sheldon Adelson and Steve Wynn became billionaires if gambling is a winning proposition for people like Paddock - and therefore, by definition, a losing proposition for the casinos?

        The media think about money the way Democrats do. They have absolutely no conception of where it originates. Those casino owners sure are generous! reporters think to themselves. Economist Thomas Sowell is always ridiculing journalists for not understanding basic economics. It turns out, they don't understand the spreadsheet of a lemonade stand.

        The New York Times explained that the "top" video poker machines pay out 99.17 percent. That's great that Paddock was only losing cents on the dollar (if true), but it's still losing. The Times quickly explained that he could have more than made up his losses with all the "comps" - the free rooms, meals and "50-year-old port that costs $500 a glass," as his brother Eric said.

        Gamblers who are beating the house are not given $500 glasses of port. Refer to the profit/loss spreadsheet. And yet, according to his brother, Paddock was treated like royalty by the casinos. Which means he was losing.

        Apart from outright theft, the only way to have an advantage over the casino is by card-counting. That's not cheating and it doesn't guarantee a win. It merely allows the gambler to make a more educated guess as each card is played, thereby tilting the odds ever so slightly in his favor. Still, if the casinos suspect a customer is counting cards, he will be promptly escorted off the premises.

        And counting cards only helps with blackjack. Paddock's game of choice was VIDEO POKER. That's a computer! It's programmed to ensure the house wins. Not all the time, but at least often enough to make casino owners multibillionaires. Anyone who plays video poker over an extended period of time will absolutely, 100 percent, by basic logic, end up a net loser.

        So why are the media insistent that Paddock was getting rich by playing video poker?

        I don't know what happened - and, apparently, neither do the cops - but it's kind of odd that we keep being told things that aren't true about the Las Vegas massacre, from the basic timeline to this weird insistence that Paddock made a good living at gambling.

        The most likely explanation is that the reporters and investigators are incompetent nitwits. But the changing facts from law enforcement and preposterous lies from the press aren't doing a lot to tamp down alternative theories of the crime.

        Among the questions not being asked by our wildly incurious media:

        Why would Paddock unload 200 rounds into the hallway at a security guard who was checking on someone else's room before beginning his massacre?

        How can it possibly take eight days to figure out when the alleged shooter checked into the hotel?

        Why was Paddock wearing gloves if he was about to commit suicide?

        Have any other solitary mass shooters ever had girlfriends?

        If Paddock wasn't making money on video poker - and he wasn't - why would he be cycling millions of dollars through a casino, turning every dollar into, at best, 99 cents?

        Maybe Paddock enjoyed video poker. But if the allegedly serious media are going to keep telling us he was making a living doing it, they're just begging us to say that losing a percent or two on millions of dollars doesn't make sense as an investment strategy, but it does make sense as a money laundering operation.

        And the probable illicit business requiring money to be laundered that leaps out at us in Paddock's case is illegal gun sales. If true, it would not only explain the arsenal in his hotel room, but also raises the possibility of either an accomplice or different perpetrator altogether.

        If this were a movie script, a terrorist would go to Paddock's room on the pretense of buying guns, kill Paddock, commit the massacre, put his gunshot residue-covered gloves on Paddock's dead hands and slip out of the room when the coast was clear.

        According to the all-new timeline given by the Las Vegas police - pending a third revision - this is at least possible. The hallway was empty, except for a bleeding security guard down by the elevators, for at least two minutes after the shooting stopped. The stairwell was clear for more than half an hour. It also explains the gloves.

        There's no evidence for any of this, but on the other hand, there's no evidence for the version the media are giving us. At least the movie script version doesn't require us to pretend that Paddock was making "millions" from video poker.

      • From a crypt in the church of St. Giles,
        Came a scream that resounded for miles!!
        "My goodness gracious!" Said brother Ignatius.
        "I forgot that your lordship has piles."

        Advantage players are uber rare. VP zombies like this guy are playing so much that he's not likely even covering for a real gambling profession like you mention here though hole carding and shuffle tracking are subsets of a bigger winning strategy - a strategy that they will 86 you for, and with today's technology, you'll get the heat the minute you sit down.

        This guy testified that he'd play up to a million coin-through in a single day. His EV on that, assuming perfect play, is about ($50,000). His earnings were coming from somewhere else. Where else? That's what the news should focus on, but they're fake, so they don't.

      • Casino's comps are generally done based on coin in, regardless of coin out, because the player will eventually give the money back anyway. You guys are discussing cards, this guy is a tool bag who spit over a million dollars into slots in a single day. Casino's will comp this kind of player all day, every day. Because the guy is a moron who will be giving anything he won back anyway.

        Ann is wrong,"Gamblers who are beating the house are not given $500 glasses of port. " The people that push a million of coin in a day through, do get pretty much everything free. Do you notice a lot of casinos closing because of this?

        System players or those who run too well all the time are so fucking few and far between that they are generally just banned.

        You do know that every casino in the US has to submit SARS reports? They have to file paperwork on every player who rolls over 10k per day (total transactions, not just single large transactions)? Photo ID's, 1099s, W9s. SARS reports. OFAIC, DML and TIN checks are run before a jackpot is dispersed. Casino's (in the US) are one of the worst places to try to launder money. Uncle fucking SAM get's his goddamn gambling money taxes.

        Then what was Paddock doing there? Simply a slots addict (there's no shortage of them)?

        Nothing about this terrorist attack makes sense.

      • You dumb goys should have forgotten about Las Vegas ages ago.

        It's ancient history, nobody will ever really know what happened.

        Forget about it.
