I know the dice has no memory and all but how many people switch tables if you just can't seem to win at a certain table and your chips are dwindling?

Not just switch but rather I will take a break and eat something or walk around and be a looky look for a bit.

I'll leave the table if my comfort level isn't where I want it to be. That could mean I'm losing, or another player's being a pest, or maybe even the dealer's being a pest. If the cards are going south, but I like the atmosphere at the table, I'll stay and continue on.

If something is going badly for you at a table, anything, why stay if you are not winning?

I want to agree with everybody but it's just this is a game of probabilities. How do you know that the table you leave isn't going to all of the sudden get a lot better while the table you are going to is going to suck just as bad if not worse?

I switch but I know it has absolutely no bearing on if things will change or not. Just breaks up the drubbing a little if it continues.

If you're playing a specific method, with your
own rules, it can make a drastic difference
to switch tables. That last table wasn't playing
'your game' and this one is. If you're just
playing randomly, as most people are, then
it makes no difference.

To give a silly example, if you bet birthdays
and anniversaries on one table and are not
winning, those very numbers might be hot
on the table next to you & if you switch, you'll
win. In roulette, obviously.

I'm with you Z. The dice don't know what table they're on, I know this, but when playing craps, I am ashamed to say, I give in the the cold table theory and leave.

Enjoying myself is almost as important as winning to me. I have only stayed at one table where I was winning but not having fun (Bellagio, with a shooter who took a full three minutes to set the dice, make late bets then roll short. He was making numbers and I was winning, but the rift between the shooter, his loud mouth girlfriend and the pit boss was getting wider with each short roll. I finally had to bring all my bets down and donate my line bet to the crew when it looked like security was going to get involved.)

No matter what game I am playing, craps, poker, pai gow poker, video poker. I never change tables or seats or machines. If things are not going well at any table , chair or machine, I simply take a break, go for a walk, clear my head and maybe get something to eat. When I come back, may pick a different table seat or machine but once I start a session, I stay in 1 place until I feel like taking a break.
