Learn to Leave When Ahead

Recommended Posts

Finally got a new vehicle the other day, so I drove down to the casino straight from the dealership. I had a $100 bill on me, so I started with that. Lost it at the Blackjack table after about 23 hands. So I go to the ATM, withdraw another $260. I plunk the $200 back on, and win my $100 back in about 14 hands. I walk away from the table. The girl at the cashout window flirts with me a little, asks to see some ID, says I look too young to be here. I have a full beard. She just wants to see if I'm from out of town or not. I am. I think about pursuing this, but don't. I go to the Roullette table and break even for a solid hour, eventually leaving with about $8 to the good from there. Looking back I don't remember where I lost $200. Might have been on a slot machine. I went to the blackjack table yet again and won a bit more. If I had only played blackjack and left while ahead, I think I would have doubled my money that night. Hopefully one day I'll learn. Or just show up when the casino is closer to closing.

All Gamblers want to win in any game ,If you  ahead of them or earned more profit you must stop and leave the game before they going to attack you again i mean dont be greedy or else all you got will be vanished.... Its hurt so much.

That's what you should be doing concerning gambling experiences. Just drop out while you can, unless you have the balance and guts to take it all in (till the end).
Eventually the House will take you down with it (Probabilistics trendings) you can't avoid it as you will it those red chances. It is pure fact and has been told over and over again everywhere. You can't change mathematics fate :D
