superrick said this on page 1 >> "it’s every simple question that should be obvious to every player out there in a casino! “You lost money” <<< Would you (EvenBob) say he is wrong? Are the answers on this thread a fact or only opinion? Ken
What you win or lose can only be calculated when you've stopped playing. A fighter is way ahead on points till he gets knocked out in the 10th round. Did he win or lose? The answer is obvious, who cares what happened in the middle. You're leaving with $100 more than you came in with, you won. How can you calculate wins and losses when you're still playing?
"What you win or lose can only be calculated when you've stopped playing." >>> Stopped playing.... FOR THAT DAY. When the guy walks out the casino door and to his car. Ken
Yes, how could you know how much you've won or lost till you leave the casino? Its meaningless till you've quit playing. Who pats himself on the back all the way home because he was up 3K at one point? It only means something if you stop playing right then.
THANK YOU kracker21 for your answer, very simple. I also agree and if no one minds, lets see where our consistency is, shall we? Ya walk in with $500, you get it up to 3K. You leave with $600....still a profit? The person does not have a loss for that day? Ken
This is an unrealistic scenario. This person would most likely leave with nothing. If one is not content being up $2500 then being up $100 would certainly not be a cause to stop gambling. This degenerate would keep going until the $500 is gone.
The first scenario I can see happening. BTW you would be up $100 for that casino.
@Evenbob >> "how could you know how much you've won or lost till you leave the casino?" >>> At least in terms of an estimate, are you saying you would NOT know you are up around $300 much less $2,500? Not saying you're wrong EvenBob, I'm only asking if these are facts or opinions from you? I for one, believe the person is up $100 but you know why I ask and why I ask on different boards.....Because there will ALWAYS be different answers and once in a while, someone wants to agree with BOTH sides (not saying you). Ken
What good is it to be 'up' any amount of money if you don't stop playing at that point? I don't get it. Its gambling, its only meaningful if you stop playing so you can't lose what you've won.
