Tarot Cards

A woman visited a psychic of some local repute. In a dark and gloomy room, gazing at the Tarot cards laid out before her, the Tarot reader delivered
the bad news: “There is no easy way to say this so I’ll just be blunt: Prepare yourself to be a widow. Your husband will die a violent death this
year.”

Visibly shaken, the woman stared at the psychic’s lined face, then at the single flickering candle, then down at her hands. She took a few deep
breaths to compose herself. She simply had to know.

She met the Tarot reader’s gaze, steadied her voice and asked, “Will I get away with it?”

What Are the Telltale Signs of Someone Counting Cards at a Casino Table?

What are telltale signs of card counting at a casino table?: originally appeared on Quora: The best answer to any question. Ask a question, get a great answer. Learn from experts and access insider knowledge. You can follow Quora on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+.

Answer by David Shi, Former Blackjack player

2015-06-02-1433212592-314510-1.jpg

In blackjack, if you count cards, it’s very easy to tell if other players are counting. Counting cards changes your play style in certain ways. You will tend to bet high when the “count” is high, and bet lower when the “count” is lower. Even with different counting systems, counting always points in the same direction. If someone is betting high when the count is high and lowering the bet when it drops, then perhaps he or she is counting. Is the person sitting out when you are sitting out? Might be a counter as well. To a counter there are some clear signs. This is why many casinos hire former counters to detect and confirm counters.

If you are not counting cards, there are still many ways to check if someone is counting. If someone bets on average much more towards the end of the shoe than in the beginning, then this is a positive sign that someone is counting (but in no way conclusive). Counters do this sometimes because that’s when the true count is potentially the highest. A high true count indicates a high player win rate. Another way to detect a counter is by seeing bet increases when a number of lower value cards come out and are played. Again, this is in no way conclusive but it is also a positive sign someone is counting. You don’t have to keep a count yourself to notice this behavior.

There are some other plays that are red flags. The first red flag is splitting 10’s. It is a no-no in blackjack to split 10’s. Many blackjack players say only dumb people and card counters would ever split 10’s. If someone split 10’s and is mostly following basic strategy this is very suspicious, especially with a large bet on the table. A lot of advantage players don’t do this anymore, even though it does bring in a bit of advantage.

Taking insurance in blackjack when they have a high bet is also a possible sign of card counting. Basic strategy says never to take insurance. Most people that do take insurance do it when their hand is good (but really insurance means do you think the dealer has blackjack and should never rely on your own hand). Insurance is the single most important play that is outside normal plays that card counters will use. This is why counters still take insurance even if it gives off a possible red flag.

All casino personnel are trained somewhat to recognize suspicious plays. They are on the lookout for people that bet more at the end of the shoe, and then go back to the minimum bet at the beginning of the shoe. They also look out for people that play 2 hands sometimes or play big bets only sometimes. They watch people that bet high sometimes whether or not they are winning or not.

Surrendering 15 sometimes vs a 10 is a sign of card counting (basic strategy says to do it always). Making a play like standing 16 vs 10 sometimes is also one. The key is consistency. If someone isn’t consistent with some strategy either they are beginners and don’t know basic strategy, or they are counting and using basic strategy variations. Standing 12v2 at a higher bet but hitting at lower bets is another example of a basic strategy variation. Hitting 12v4 around half the time is another example.

I personally start paying attention to people’s play when I see them playing good basic strategy. Unfortunately, this is rare. Playing good perfect strategy includes surrendering properly, and doing a few trickier correct moves (like doubling correct soft hands). This led to noticing a number of counters at casinos. They raise bets when I raise, and then lower bets when I lower them. One guy I am certain was a counter asked the dealer who was going to switch out to play 1 more hand (when the dealers switch out of some pitch games, they drop the shoe). The guy proceeded to spread his bet to 2 hands and the running count was about 10 in a double deck with maybe a little over a deck left to play (which is a large advantage for the player). The same guy also ramped his bet up from $ 25 to $ 250 fairly quickly in the previous shoe which was also really high count. What was more telling was he smiled at me and left right after the dealer played an extra hand and said “well looks like one of us has to leave”. It is bad for 2 counters to play at the same table and he knew that. Maybe if the guy disguised his greedy play better, it wouldn’t have been as clear, but that was probably the most clear cut example of a counter that I have personally encountered.

A common misconception is that a card counter always wins. They don’t always win. They are expected to win in the long run, but even while counting winning is nearly 50/50. The advantage gained from counting is around 1-2%.

Mailboxes to Fill with Mother’s Day Cards

Mother: She planned your birthday parties and your wardrobe, taught you how to hold a fork and the importance of writing Thank You notes. While there are many ways of showing your love this Sunday, Mother’s Day—with a call, text, tweet, email, Snapchat, flower delivery, or a singing telegram—snail mail remains a charmingly viable option. And whether the card is Hallmark or handmade, it would be a double pleasure to retrieve it from a mailbox as attractive as those we found on Instagram.

Netflix’s ‘House Of Cards’ Returns For 3rd Season

NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Kelly did everything he could to stay under the radar.

“For a year, I’ve had to keep everything so secret,” he said. “I feel awful for having to lie, but what else could I do?” So lie he did. And if you don’t know what he lied about, you might want to stop reading right here.

Kelly, of course, rode strong on Netflix’s political thriller “House of Cards” in its first two seasons as the sotto-voce psycho Doug Stamper, the glowering henchman to Francis Underwood (series star Kevin Spacey) in his rise from House Whip to vice president to POTUS.

But as Underwood schemed his way into the White House at the tail end of last season, an even more startling thing occurred: Stamper was bashed in the head with a rock by an assailant and left for dead.

Now it can be told: Stamper lives! And he, in Kelly’s staunch portrayal, resumes his driven, devilish mission as “Cards” unveils its 13-episode third season Friday on the Netflix website.

Stamper’s survival was a secret that, against all odds in this post-secret era, almost went the distance. A consensus held firm among the “House of Cards” faithful: Stamper was dead, with Kelly regrettably out of the series.

In Baltimore, where “Cards” was shooting its third season, Kelly had taken pains to wear a hat and contact lenses rather than his usual glasses when out in public, and if approached with the inquiry, “What are YOU doing here?” he’d explain, “I’m a producer” or “These are my friends I’m coming back to visit.”

That was then.

“To be able to speak freely! It’s been a year,” said Kelly over omelets with a reporter recently. It was his first chance to break his silence, his first chance to explain to “Cards” fans (whose gratitude that Stamper was alive might be unsettled by annoyance at having been misled) that his survival was no cheap trick.

When the scene was shot with Stamper unconscious on the ground in woods outside Washington, Kelly said he got clear directions: “You’re breathing. It’s very, very shallow breathing,” and he demonstrated his near-death status for his breakfast companion, complete with a microscopic twitch of an eye.

From February 2014, when Season 2 premiered, the secret held. That is, until Netflix let its own cat out of the bag. Just a few days after the chat with Kelly, Netflix inadvertently posted new episodes online in what it termed a “technical glitch,” very briefly but long enough for alert Web surfers to pounce, turning a leak into a social-media geyser.

As a handful of viewers glimpsed then, and everybody else can behold now, Stamper begins the season in a hospital battered and bruised and suffering from severe brain damage. He faces lengthy rehabilitation, a state all the more cruel for keeping him sidelined from his cherished role as the president’s right-hand man.

“He’s so different now from the character I played the first two years!” said Kelly. “But when someone suffers a brain injury, the variables of what can happen to that person are so vastly different. Playing him, I was more challenged than I’ve ever been as an actor.”

It was a bit more rudimentary when Kelly won the part.

“(‘Cards’ creator) Beau Willimon told me, ‘Here’s the deal: I don’t want to ever see you emote,'” Kelly recalled with a laugh. “I said, ‘OK, I can do that.'”

Born in Philadelphia, Kelly, 45, grew up near Atlanta and, after college in South Carolina, headed to New York and studied at the Actors Studio while making ends meet with jobs that ranged from waiting tables and construction to working in a consignment shop for high-end designers “where women brought in Hermes bags they no longer wanted.”

He landed roles in such films as “Man on the Moon,” ”Changeling,” ”Now You See Me” and “Man of Steel,” and the HBO miniseries “Generation Kill,” as well as being a regular on “Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior.” This fall he will be seen in “Everest,” a historical action-adventure film in which he stars as Jon Krakauer opposite Josh Brolin, Jake Gyllenhaal and his “Cards” co-star Robin Wright.

He modestly described his career as a slow build, “little step by little step.”

But it was a giant step into “House of Cards” and the chilling anti-hero he brought to life. Meanwhile, Kelly’s own manner — animated, easygoing — is unexpected evidence of his skill for transformation.

“Every interview I’ve ever done, they say, ‘You SMILE!'” Kelly noted with amusement. “But you want to know the truth? That’s all I ever do. I feel so blessed to be doing what I do, it’s pretty easy for me to smile.”

Two male actors/close friends want to jumpstart their careers. They end up making a big shot producer think that they have a hot script that everyone wants to get their hands on. The 2 men then drive to upstate New York and hole up in a family member’s country home- with 10 dedicated days to write said script. Dominic and Raphael then get derailed by a beautiful gardener, Ava and Dominic’s sister, Gigi. Both women appear at the house, which was supposed to be serene enough to focus on the task at hand. But to add to the problems, Gigi’s boyfriend Wayne arrives, still suffering from PTSD, and his brother Devon as well, creating even more havoc. A looming deadline and complicated personal histories create scenes that are humorous and emotional.
