Somehow I also believe in gambling luck.

Sometimes on table, you will encountered people like this. They always win no matter what. Get lousy cards, but somehow chng kay busted. Make the wrong hit, but ended up getting perfect point. Anyhow split, still win. Very 邪门 one.

I dont play with people like this on the same table. I will peggy back on his bet.

The perception of 'luck' is just but a statistical anomaly.

I think those of us who played table who testified what you term '邪门'.

But then again, it is human nature also to magnify and remember the gain. When it comes to losses, you forget or minimisie it.

Personally, it looks to be more common to have a string of 'bad luck' happening to those who are playing (either yourself or other people).

eg. you hit 19/20 at pontoon, dealer hit 21. You get 3 of a kind at 3-card poker, dealer hit straight flush (true story happens to me)

But those are merely the HA at play and probably a more occurrence.

What you mentioned i had been through quite a nunber of times. I don't call these '邪门'. This is actually quite normal to me. Example, Like the entire table all getting 20 and then the chng kay hitting pontoon.

If you observed frequently and carefully, once in a while, you will see some players, no matter how ridiculous they drawn their cards, they win. Either the chng kay busted or they managed to get slightly better points. And this runs for a period of time.

I dont know this is just statistically anomaly or some supernatural thingy. I just classified this as 'xie men'.

And like i said before, i will not play on same table. I dont want to be part of his winning statistic. haha.

1) Use data roam. So that once you pass customs can surf shiok shiok
2) Yong Peng can buy
3) Genting the shopping side got Digi IIRC

KLIA is 100 Km from KL.
Not really any good way to KL.

Grab from central KL is plentiful and cheap. Why not take Grab to GH hotels instead of cable car.
Plenty of Grab from KLIA also.
How much is it roughly for the grab from central KL? And how much if from KLIA?

Just want to know roughly so can use it as reference next time..

Thanks!

Your statements in bold contradict each other leh.

Anyway I have encountered these before, and the strange thing is after I follow their bet, they stop winning liao. Want to be part of the winning statistic also cannot.

my advice
stick to your m1 starhub or singtel plans. for me data travel by starhub $5 3days 1gig or $15 at 2gig for a mth.
why? because you risk pte info used by scammers.

The 2 events are quite similar but different. The first one is pretty common, but the latter is like luck on fire.

Haha, very common for yr case. I also encountered before. Either you waited too long , or he already won for many rounds.

Think old version has bathtub (Tower 2), new renovated ones no have (tower 1). Either mountain or facing theme park. And no WIFI. get a sim card, much faster.

Out of curiosity, how do we track this 1 gb of data roaming overseas ah? Is 1gb mainly for surfing net and replying msg nia and not suitable for playing games?
