What is your limit for consecutive losses before you get up off of the table disgusted and mad? Losses so sickening because the impossible just happened?

The impossible never happens: The unlikely happens often enough to be irritating.
If I ever get up disgusted and mad, it's with my own recklessness and not with the game, which does what it does.
I've progressively wagered into a 14 long losing BJ streak. I chickened out of full Marty and was pissed at losing most of £500 trying to win about £3
Didn't get mad.
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

No limit. Lost 16 straight (not counting pushes) at pai gow. Cashed in $400. Played $25 a hand. It was only way I knew it was 16 as I approached it. Took out a little more. Left that table UP a small amount. variance negative... then variance positive....

I leave if time is up, or if I've reached some poorly thought out 'stop loss limit'.

If you already know every game, shuffler , and machine is rigged .. then no loss should be sickening.

So what you say should be true to me, as I do say that if they are giving you wins, then they are giving you the losses as well. There have been points where I want to get up and walk away but I usually stay until Iím the last man standing.

PM MDawg. He can help you fix that problem.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I have no limit, other than money I'm willing to lose. I know the odds of the game don't change based on previous results so if I was willing to play the first hand, I'm still willing after a bad streak.

I'm usually grandfathered in at a table so leaving isn't an option unless I'm riding high on a winning streak.

Was playing a full table, with a fun bunch of strangers when they switched dealers. Exact details are hazy but she kicked some serious ass on a bunch of hands and it seemed she was dealing herself blackjack every other hand. When she pulled a six on her five card fifteen, she cleared the table of all but myself. I'm not big on one to one play, but I stuck around long enough to drop another hundred or so.

This is the kind of thing that, even though I know the cards can get hot or continue being cold, just makes me want to leave and try something different!
