Lose 2m at dice, then get a check in the mail from fulltilt for 5M for the month of may.
And win 500K on the lakers, 200K off Negraneau and 5more mill of bracelet bets....
who cares about 2M on dice...

From casino advisor magazine;
"In any case the world of games is divided into two categories: games that require skills and games that depend on luck (games of chance).
Games of chance: Traditionally, games of Luck are baccarat, craps, Roulette, slots, keno and bingo
Games that require special skills: Blackjack and different variants of poker are traditional games of skills"
The only ever argument I've heard for beating craps is using "Dice Control" to manipulate the roll of the dice. Most people however say that this is a load of rubbish and if anyone can do it they are VERY few and far between and Ivey definitely isn't one of them!!

OMFG you want to start this again, you IDIOT? I proved this to you before, you donkey. Point blank, in a Life of Ivey video on Pokerroad, David Williams and Phil are talking about "the dice figure" and how David can get "unstuck" from buying into Phil's dice action. Phil says "he took ten percent of me shooting dice over the last year..." and then tells him the only way is to buy in again ("that's how you're gonna get even; you're gonna bet").
Did I say Phil was "STAKED?" No; obviously that is stupid. I said people bought pieces. FOR THE LAST TIME, GET A CLUE YOU CLOWN!!! How many times do you have to get pwned before you learn to shut the fuhck up?
Here is the video so you can shove your fat foot in your fat mouth once again (and don't forget last time you had nothing to say when I posted the evidence).
YOU LOSE. AGAIN.

But, blackjack is not regarded as a game of skill! Even playing 'perfect blackjack' the house has an edge. Yes, it is possible to card count (but it is cheating, and is very hard to get away with). To the everyday punter, there are better players and worse players, but the fact that the house always has an edge means it aint no skill game.

On average in blackjack the dealer has 5% advantage. But in some casinos its only 0.5% depending on house rules.
But, the main advantage (as far as I know) comes from the fact the dealer acts last. Just like having position in poker, dealer sees all the information and knows what needs to do.

A) Counting cards IS NOT illegal. However, since casinos are technically private property, they can ban you and forbid card counting.
Because counting cards has been mathematically PROVEN to be successful (moving the edge to SLIGHTLY in favor of the player), it is, technically, a skill game.
I think the bottom line is that poker clearly has more aspects that make it a skill game than do other casino games.

Poker is the only game that I know of where you can use skill over and over again to win and nobody will ever complain. More likely they will give you a free suite!
