Recent Scientific Research.
The article sites some controlled research wherein gamblers were playing a synthetic card came that put real money at risk of being lost and had to analyze the risk of four different decks.
Blood sugar, excitement, boredom ... all probably play a role.
IF I indulge in a buffet, I usually go up to my room and sleep .... otherwise I'm awake pretty much all the time I'm in a casino, often starting my day showered and dressed but not yet caffeinated at 6:00am in the casino and many times seeing people at the craps table who were there the night before.

Vegas should always be FUN. Just moderate your gambling afterwards if the granola bar is a very large one.Quote: Baccaratfrom79
