Uh, Bill, you're quoting your own posts again and I think you accidently locked your "caps" on .

cuesmith,

As long as you're imagining scenarios that will help you, you must also remember that the equal and opposite scenarios also apply. Consider this: as you say, you use your "get out of jail free" card and escape a deadly trap. Good for you. Now three shots later you are in a trap where you need your "get out of jail free" card 5 times more than before but it's gone now because you already used it once. You must consider this scenario also to make the game. Point being that you don't know when is the absolute "right" time to use it. It might help you temporarily and then hurt you by not having it later.

I'm looking at the tree as we speak and unfortunately there are at least two that are burned out and don't look like they will ever come back on.

What you don't realize, is that I've already considered and rejected what you'all are saying - for not being feasible....My more intelligent and realistic point being, that there is not enough data available re. this scratch-spot scenario, to make it possible to use probability theory to come up with a valid analysis of what the spot is worth - a guess, is all that's possible....

Not like I'm a genius or anything but this does remind me of the old saying:"those of you who don't understand this are very annoying to those of us that do". How f@@king hard is this to understand. You must make the game line before the game starts, not based on scenarios imagined after the game starts.
