Dude, it's nice that your parents are doing the whole "focus on your studies, don't work" thing, but that ain't reality, and college ain't that hard. Wanna have the best experience of your life one weekend in April? Pick up two shifts a week someplace. You have seven months, 28 weeks until Coach. All you have to do is put away 50 bucks a week into a savings account for 15 weeks tops.
Betao--do you live with your 'rents still and commute to school? If not, why are you discussing shit with them? You're in college, right? You're eighteen? That means you take charge of your life. Unless you live with them, in which case you have problems.
TeamCoach--Dude, I still don't know what the fuck you're talking about. To my knowledge, there is NO way to cheat at craps in a real casino. People go on winning streaks--it's something that happens with gambling. They don't usually kick you out for winning, especially at a game that you can't cheat at. If they think you're counting cards at blackjack, that's different, but that ain't this.
And no, theoretically there's no way to gamble professionally successfully, although some do it. But the fact that you have to declare your winnings to the IRS as an argument that you can't make any money by winning money is... well, fucking retarded. You have to win quite a bit before they make you declare that, and if you've won that much, you're succeeding. That's like saying there's no way to make money at a job 'cause the government is going to make you pay taxes on it.

How are they going to know if you have a job or not?
Edit: I'm so happy that I worked while going to school. I could apply so much of what learned from my job to school and vise-versa. Maybe you could look for a job in an area that you are trying to major in. That way you have a head start compared to the rest of your class, when it comes to getting a job when you graduate.

yeah I thought about that too. I'm just worried of risking something like that. If they werent paying for my tuition, I wouldnt be so hesitant. I might just get a job anyway, but we'll see what happens.

I never recommended going and randomly giving your money to the casino owners in games you don't know how to play. I recommended becoming a pro's student. And how in the fuck is it impossible to make money off of table games if there are pros? Just because the one trip you took to the casino cost you your vacation money, doesn't mean that others don't put in a lot of work into beating the casinos.
Also try selling old textbooks online. Those science and math ones can easily go for $50-80 each.
Last five  documented sessions of craps play:
Sessions are designed to last ONE HOUR. So, in essence, those numbers are per hour. Documented because I believe there was a winning session somewhere in there that I failed to log on my chart. Happens.
TCHY: The majority of the people who go into casinos and give them their money are uneducated in the facets of the games they are playing. That is how casinos make money. They don't make it off of pros. Pros exist. If you don't believe me, I don't care. I'll go today, nod my head at the players who are ALWAYS AT THE TABLE I frequent, and you can continue believing that because some uneducated rich man who lost several million dollars in one session on time, there can be no one who can regularily beat the books.

that reminds me, I was driving down FLW in Scottsdale this weekend, and there was this Bentley in front of me, and then I passed him and looked to see what sort of person would drive a Bentley.. and swear to god it was The Gambler himself, mr. Kenny Rogers. Gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, folks.
