with unlimited bankroll followed by unlimited time followed by no heat your bankroll will grow anywhere from 0.5 to 2% increase?
even the atlantic city 8 deckers h17 no surrender rules with a powerful spread should still yield that 1% increase of cash flow your way?

so my question is bankroll is the Holy Grail in gambling with blackjack being the main game?

i read how peoeple lost thousands and thousands of cold hard cash with that full pay deuces wild kinda makes you think they were better off w/ a simple JoB 9/6

If one had an unlimited bankroll, what would they gain by gambling?
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

i guess i should have put a bankroll of "9999999999999999" not sure how many 9s there are but you get the idea someone whos wealthy enough to play any condition and any rules and still squeeze that 0.5% edge out let it take a 1 year or 10 years

Wealthy people by and large do not gamble. They're far too intelligent, and they are driven by the rewards of hard work. Gambling is a lazy man's game.

Having a near-unlimited bankroll is near-unlimited theory.

Yea they dont gamble alright. These wealthy people instead put all their money in the biggest casino in the world instead, the STOCK MARKET LOL. Unless theyre investing in a low cost booming sector index fund, then they are very much gambling.

Your posts here since you joined seem to come off like you lost your shirt 'gambling' recently. How much have you lost gambuhling?
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

Please post a list of wealthy people who gamble in casinos. Then compare it to how many wealthy people there are. I'm talking true wealthy people, not a listing of well-off gamblers that other gamblers look up to as "wealthy" because they've never had to sleep in their cars.

Now make a list of lower-rung people who gamble (and very likely drink too much and smoke). What's that, there's not enough room here to do that?

You get my point.

By most estimations, there are at least several hundred whales in the world -- people wagering hundreds of thousands of dollars on one hand. And countless thousands upon thousands of high rollers. I see them every time I go to Vegas. So, there's a buttload of very wealthy people gambling in casinos all the time.

There are exponentially more poor and middle class people in the world than wealthy people, therefore there will be exponentially more of them gambling.

I know more than one person with high 7-8 figure net worth who will gamble somewhat regularly.

But I think any non-ap who's playing in the casino every single day is probably an addict on some level.

I agree with horse on this one.

By and large or "in general", wealthy people don't gamble -- as in, they don't regularly gamble (2+ times a year) or if they do gamble more often, don't play for large stakes - I heard Bill Gates enjoys playing $5 blackjack or something like that....I wouldn't consider that gambling (for him), since the intent of the statement, "wealthy people don't gamble" is that they don't frivolously throw their money away at the casinos.


Or as someone once said, "You don't get rich by throwing money away", probably.
