Nah. Let's not split hairs about it. "Being ahead" is a state of being. An emotion. You see your spouse approaching the table, you glance down at your chips and tell her "I'm ahead five bucks and all my bets on the table are with their money". You don't do some calculations about comps or expected traffic jams or hotel rooms. Ahead means you are "in the plus column" or "in the black". Ahead usually means by a substantial enough amount to matter to you and after a substantial enough amount of time to be of significance to you.Quote: konceptum
Wouldn't there need to be a clear definition of "being ahead"?
f you look down after twenty minutes and see "X" more chips than you started with, you are ahead.
If you win the first bet, you are ahead. If you lose the first bet and win the next two, then you are ahead. That should account for 70% right there.
Whichever makes you feel better. I'd tend to focus on a "session" particularly if I am ahead that session but had lost earlier. Some might say "I'm on a comeback" meaning I lost earlier but I'm gaining on them and will catch up shortly. No one is going to admit in the middle of a spin that they are thinking of airline tickets and hotel rooms and tips to the valet and paying for some hooker. Just as the casino segregates out your Comps and your gambling; so too do the players.Quote: kp
