The old time Vegas gamblers had a saying: Get in,
get it done, get out.

I'm a huge believer in this for table games. If you
have an advantage, you have a goal for every session.
Get in, make your goal, and leave.

The reasons for this are many. The smallest footprint
as possible in any one casino. You aren't there to have
fun, you're there to make money. And the smaller the
amount of the BR you expose to variance, the better.

Are the "wins" not independent of each other?

Hahaha... I know I sound crazy, I'm just trying to get another perspective.. As EvenBob said, I "get in and get out".

Getting in and getting out isn't crazy. A lot of
people don't understand the concept of goals
in gambling. You have goals in every other facet
of life, but not gambling. When you get in your
car, you have a goal. When you eat dinner, do you
just eat and eat and eat? You have a goal. At work,
do you stay there for 15 hours or do you have a
set schedule. At night, do you just sleep and sleep
and get up when you want? No. Yet in gambling,
goals are laughed at, just stay and play and play,
be a good little casino drone..

This discussion is about to blow up. I am sure that already the "advantage players" who have their "positive expectation games" are grinding their teeth and saying anyone preaching a win goal has no idea about what they are talking about.

I am starting the countdown, now...

You are definitely correct... I still don't understand how people stay so long... And that's why I posed the question...

But I think some of the "math guys" don't want to associate with that concept of "time of play" because it would create a synthesis with the "betting strategy" guys..

And for the gambler's fallacy addicts (I loathe the phrase) how is it that you can agree with houses edge on dice and not agree with the concept of "time on a table" or "leaving"...It follows the same guidelines...

There was a guy om FOXNEWS this morning, Claims to have hit the lottery 7 times. Said, "Luck has nothing to do with it". To understand the system, all you need to do is buy his book.
