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!



Casinos will still be there tomorrow. I try to only play when I'm feeling up. If something annoys me I usually stop.

The only time I would leave a blackjack table is for one of the following reasons:

1) I'm no longer playing perfectly.
2) I believe I must choose between ending my session or attracting too much attention.
3) I get told no more blackjack and/or asked to leave.

1b) the game is no longer good
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

I can't recall exactly what was said but I do remember you suggesting it might be a good idea to quit a +EV play if you were way over expectation and fear of giving too much back(or something like that).

I don't think it was a good idea necessarily but It was an interesting thread. I can think of some reasons one might do that.... such as a bank roll preservation assuming you have the ability to find good plays, even ones at a lesser value if they have significantly less risk. Since we're human and not robots, there's something to be said about not sweating the money while making plays.

I always believe just continue playing until all of your money is gone.
Living longer does not always infer +EV

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?




Be a man. Stop thinking that kinda crap. If you are young, which I assume you are, if your "gambling career" lasts another 50 years, you're going to see everything. Suck it up, or find something else to occupy your time with. But whatever you do, always be a gentleman, no matter how "bad" you think you're running. People will respect you for it. Yes they will. They will notice. Trust me. When you're getting clobbered, and remaining calm and graceful through it all, they will notice. You'll develop a good reputation when you're a good loser. Don't be known as Crying Kenny. And that applies away from the games as well. Life is a poker game.

"gambling career"



I joined this site when zen king was a thing and have zero aspirations of a gambling career and know that the money lies within the intellectual property and casino side of things. This question arose because every time Iím at the casino there is always a whole table that gets up and walks away, if they donít leave one by one. Personally when someone leaves the table I seem to always benefit somehow even though itís just a gamblers fallacy possibly if itís not a side effect of the way the cards are ďrandomizedĒ

I don't know wtf you're talking about. Are you going to be gambling 50 years from now or not? God willing.

I was saying thinking that you can (as an average person) make a career of gambling will make you emotionally crazy. Because you are expecting a steady profit that allows you to live a steady normal life. And it doesnít from what Iíve seen Zen king and his rants about. Honestly a job or selling drugs is more profitable in my mind. Iím not going to be gambling for the next 50 years. I donít plan on making a career of gambling or a lot of money gambling at all.

ZenKing, as he presents himself here and elsewhere, is so far from a successful professional gambler, in methods, temperment, bankroll, plans, skillset, it's sad. I'm kind of horrified you're using him as your example.

Don't be ZenKing of the gambling forums. It's that simple. He's not, in my somewhat limited experience, typical. He's not even ZenKing of the forums in person.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
