I don’t think Chad knows his math very well. If these box odds are “super-juiced,” then I’d hate to think what they’ll look like in the future. I’m not counting on him, but it's probably not even his fault. Chad, get out while you still can.
It depends. If there is no one active in your current club, then you should join a different one or create one. Creating one will take some time to gather members unless you plan on being in it by yourself.
