The hardest thing to do, as I have learned the hard way and it has recently been reinforced over and over and over again is to stop losing. I had posted about a month ago about my two month losing streak at PGP and to a lesser extent BJ. It still there even though i took about six weeks off. The second is, especially after a few drinks, is to not chase after losses. I have done this a few times and IT NEVER WORKS! You just end up losing twice as much and feel worse the next day. The temptation to do it is ten fold if you have been drinking.

I took another trip and pretty much won it all back and got some comps in the process. Out of the 10 or so sessions (of widely varying length) I had, only one of them was a losing one. I think I'll go back in mid-Dec. when the hotels are dirt cheap.

Yeah, "Dead Week" though unofficially defined usually means low room rates and a noticeable decrease in the throngs ebbing and flowing along the Strip.

Glad your losing streak ended. Good luck.
