Let's say you brought only $500 as your max gambling budget. You sat at your "go-to" game and things went well for you within the first hour. At what level of credit/chips in your possession would you honestly stop and cash your winning? If you cash your winnings, you can enjoy your winnings on food/shows/bars/etc but you cannot drop a single dollar to gamble the rest of the trip (weekend). I want to know everybody's logic in when you'd pull the plug on yourself. Please be honest and state why you'd stop at your specific amount.

You pretty much described me exactly. $500, one real day of gambling. Nailed it.

I stopped at $750. That's $250 I didn't have, and I can do a whole lot with $250. $500 would be better, but not as much as $0 would be worse. Color, I'm out. Someone pull me outta the bar before you leave.

I am a low roller with a penchant for addictive behavior, I am very aware of this so I think that if I were to win more than 2500$ I would walk away, ask for a check for the difference with this and my Bankroll, take a break and probably play a bit more with my original bankroll. I can't cash the check so the money would be safe. Please don't tell me the Casino would exchange my check back for money, I don't want to know. ;)
So Wizard, still no basic strategy for strip poker huh?

It depends on the game, what I've won and how I've won it, etc.

If its a slot machine, I pretty much stop whenever I hit what I'm there to hit and that's it, move on to the next one. If its blackjack, I'll stop when I get tired. If its craps, I'll stop when I'm making less and less and less.


There is no "chip amount" for me. If I happen to get up 1.2 million in a night, I'm not going to just walk because I"m up 1.2 million, I'm going to walk because I'm tired, hungry, sleep, need a shower, need to go spend some quality time with a lady, or any number of other reasons. An arbitrary win amount has never and won't ever been a "stop-win".

You are a purist my friend. But hot damn...1.2M and no flinching until tired, and etc.

I haven't been that fortunate, but I see no reason why I'd stop if I had hit that mark, other than what I described. I just don't let emotions, excitement and win/loss amounts affect my play.
