ROFLMAO……well I'm not rolling on floor but I can't stop laughing…..I'm sorry gr8player


Sorry, no offense intended.

When I spend too much time with people, I tend to pick up their habits. Recently I watched a speech given by the president, and the next day I threatened to implement sanctions against my golden retriever.

The problem I guess is that you're only up 700 actual dollars, assuming the standard $25 unit size. If I recall correctly, you said playing higher stakes throws off your game, but that should simply be a matter of acclimatization. What are your goals for moving up to higher unit sizes?



A little correction here. At the Borgata, the minimum unit size is $20 not $25. They do have very nicely designed chips compared to the rest of the other AC casinos. Next one up is Caesars.

Thanks :)

I'm not a player.

You do recall correctly, gpac1377. I do believe that playing outside of one's own personal comfort zone will lead only to eventual disaster. Reasoning:

Money management is of critical importance in this game. The manipulation and adjusting of bet sizes is vital, but there must be leeway to do so. Whenever one is betting above their comfort level, those bet size adjustments become much more difficult to implement, especially in those times of variance downturns.

So after one develops their preferred bet selection process, one must then tailor their money-management plan around that; bearing in mind, however, that they must be ready, willing, and able to make those "recoup bets" as their plan dictates. Scared money, or simply playing scared, just won't cut it.

So one must keep their unit sizes both comfortable and do-able, and that includes the unit sizes that are necessary in their "recoup modes" of play.

Me? My "gr8player's progression" goes only to 5 levels, so my "hi-bet" is only 5 units. (Sidenote: And, it bears mentioning here that I never, ever utilize my 5-unit level...if I did have to dip that far into the pool on a regular basis, I'd give the game up...I don't make it a habit of putting myself into potentially-disastrous situations.) But I do know my hi-bet, and I know I can handle it. Both monetarily and psychologically.

The NOR guy needs to take some seminar money and go straight to the dentist.

This cat reminds me of the dude that was playing 500 plus a hand in Bac and had 3 teeth.



That geezer is full of crap. He may have a good idea here and there once in a while but the majority of whatever he spews is sewer sludge. Saw his youtube videos. Definitely not sustainable and to wheel in the suckers.

Thanks. It's definitely important to recognize the negative possibilities when formulating a plan. I'm very respectful of risk in my own activities. I never invest 100% in the stock market, and I don't buy avocados.
