I consider a session successful if I am up more than HKD10,000 (US$1,300) after all hotel and entertainment expenses and I am cashing out the most money I've had throughout the whole session. I try setting goals but once I reach them I tend to bet bigger with my profits and whenever I lose a hand I try to get back my highest point, seeing anything less than it as a loss. I usually can't stop myself from playing until the end of a shoe. Sometimes when a friend that brought less money than me is up more due to aggressive betting I also try to be up by that amount. I consider a session bad when I end up without the money to buy a ferry ticket back to Hong Kong and have to use my points to get one.

I'm in the casino for one thing only. To find an edge in my favor and then and only then, get my money on the table win, lose or draw. Comps and freebies are nice but I couldn't care less about them.



Very well said! I don't go to the casinos to break even,but when I do I consider it a success because I've overcome the house edge.
