There is a thing that I love of being a crupier . There is always some moments , you get the chance to show up your skills.
I remember when I started I was very bad in maths I was never a good student for that area but thanks of CERUS ,4 years of experience and a good memory I always find a way to make easier the payouts aren’t common ....
Pictures bet help me a lot !!
I had today 11 straight (385 ) plus 14 split (238 ) ..... no way if I had to do that in my mind ...... so .... I might do more calculations than others but it’s so much easier and quicker in my case .... so one picture bet (1split and 1straight ) 52 it means 10 split and 10 straight 520 (52*10) ..... I still have 4 split and 1 straight which is another picture bet 103 ....
So 520+103 =623 !!! What do u think ? Which one is easier to do it in your mind ?
Calculate 238 + 385
Calculate (52*10) + 103
I took me two seconds !
Obviously I’m a human and I have mistakes but it surprises me how good I became !
I'm calling this one "Still Life in Hotel with Laptop and Cappuccino." I never left this spot yesterday. The sky was blue, the sun bright outside my window. But I had work to do. The kind of work that requires a deep dive to the small, dense, dark interior place where the truest and most tender parts of our stories reside. This new book of mine involves a recasting, redefining, and a new understanding of everything I thought I knew about myself and the family I come from. And so, silence. Solitude. A room high above a city I don't know well. A Do Not Disturb sign hanging on the door. Later today I'll put on grownup clothes and head over to the Miami Book Fair (come see me and @adacalhoun at 4pm if you're in town) but for now, I am turning inward, where once again I meet the girl I once was. "I'm sorry," I want to tell her. "I'm here." And "I love you." #writer#writing#writinglife#writersofinstagram#memoir#memory#travel#miamibookfair#unplugmeditation
