Don't overplay your bankroll. This is where Kelly comes in. Problem solved!
But I didn't. If I had played to my bankroll I would have lost at least 8-20 times what I did. If you're saying keep on pumping,within my bankroll and it'll all be alright in the end, I don't get that either. Where's the guarantee?
It's not merely "one of the administrators" with that tag-line. It's the Wizad himself.Quote: tournamentking
I think one of the administrators here has this by-line. I ask WTF? Where am I going wrong?!

It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I've said I was "in training" to be a good video poker player. Today I felt knowledgeable enough to go up to quarters because I've been practicing DDB on B. Dancer's software plus playing it for nickels in a few casinos.
I found what I know is a more than 100% game, 10/6 DDB. I played two 3 hour sit downs. I lost $250 in the first session and $200 in the second. I got no quads at all! I used my slot card and had $40 in free play to go along with this. It's not a lot to lose really, but I kept thinking if I were playing $1 or $2 or even $5, what a loss!
So why would anyone say it doesn't matter if you win or lose but if you made good bets? Huh? I made good bets every hand I played, didn't I? But YES, it certainly DOES matter if I won or lost, and for more than one reason. I just don't get the uncommon sense about ap video poker play. How can anyone not care if they win or lose? What good does it do if good bets are made and you still lose? How is that supposed to make up for a loss that could have been in the thousands of dollars if I played higher limits? Please help!
