20% plus or .3%, who is more pathetic? spending $3 of $1000 is not bad. $200 or more from the same amount is.



Hey pal, you're hand is trash, not even a pair. Your post is ridiculous. Oh, I see! The high roller only plays one hand while the dodo
plays 1000.

So the guy pays $10/hr for entertainment. Does that include drinks? Still cheaper and more fun than going to the movies.

Why do people do it then?



The casinos have brainwashed the players into thinking they're making a $1.25 bet rather than paying 25 cents to bet a $1.00. They know nothing of a proper bankroll and think their money will last longer at the lower limits.

Resorts in AC has removed these tables.

We're talking about a person losing 30 cents/hand who's considered pathetic vrs a guy losing $3/hand who's not? Aren't they both paying for entertainment and enjoying the casino amenities? Guess who appears to be getting the bargain? Beat those aces. I think the high roller only has kings, but he is high rolling.


The point isn't that he is paying "too much", but rather that he is paying more than he could. If he bet $5, he'd only be losing 5 cents per hand, but he chose to bet $1, and lose 30. That's just crazy.

I think we might analogize this to those who instead of memorizing the True Basic Strategy with all its fine details simply adopt an Adjusted Basic Strategy that is, for them, easier to remember. They are playing at less than optimal but still in a convenient manner. Its similar to those who stand on 16 for emotional reasons rather than hitting which is the optimal play.

These are choices made sometimes out of ignorance and sometimes simply for convenience.

A less than optimal 7 dollars at a 10 dollar table is unwise, but understandable as an attempt to make the bank roll last longer.

No, that is different. It is not any easier to bet one dollar than it is to bet five. There is absolutely no reason to do it whatsoever.

Yes, I see the similarity with this one. The only difference is that less money is wasted.
Doubling "soft eleven" "for emotional reasons" would be another example.
