Only the very clever and the very brave manage to escape without being shook down.
Opinions will always vary on this topic, so here's my two cents worth. I'm up $100.
Any money you are playing with is YOURS, not the casino's.
LOL, Like chook sagely says: NONE of the money you have while you are in the casino is yours, until you LEAVE with it.
chook stated: "All tallies should only be done outside the Casino" >>> Sooo, the person came out ahead, correct? Ken
This seems so simplistically obvious...
"If you can bet it, eat it, set fire to it, blow your nose with it, or spend it, then it's your money" >>> You guys kill me. So the person LOST money (total) for the day, correct? Ken
What does whether he won or lost have anything to do with the question? Is this just another jjj-type response: having nothing to do with what was asked or said?
Let me put it in a way you might be able to understand: does the casino ever let you bet THEIR money? No! So if you can bet it, it's YOUR money.
A) He left with a profit?
B) He lost money on the day?
