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

I'm not sure what you're asking, Ken. If you walk in with $500 and leave with $600, you made $100. What possible difference does it make what you did while you were playing, you never stopped. The question only has meaning if you ask it after you stop playing. Its like asking somebody what their fastest speed was on a car trip, when the trip is only half over.

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?

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.

@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).

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.

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.
