Just got back from vegas a few days ago. I was playing blackjack and got up to $400 in the positive. I quit for the day, but got that itch to play again thelast day. I ended up going home with $110 in the positive instead of $400.

I was up once but I was like, what else am I going to do in AC? So I kept playing blackjack and lost it all. Every last cent. Gambled it all away.

I felt the same way, I had nothing to do at the time so I wanted to play some more. Blackjack is not 50/50 so you have to be lucky and win thehands where you bet bigger. If you play long enough you will lose more hands than you win. In vegas they have plenty of things to try to get people to keepplayin, from the half naked dealers to the free drinks.

I would have just took $100 and used that to gamble and kept $300 in my pocket. But that's just me...

i can believe it, i saw an old asian man lose 400 bucks in about 30 sec. I didnt feel quite as bad after I saw that. Its just the nature of thebusiness when it comes to gambling. So i cant beat myself up about it, at least i went home in the positive.

Kang used to piss me off so bad... I'd be playin Pai Gow and be up 20... maybe 40
, and he'd be up at LEAST 200!

And I'd be like "LET'S GOOO!!!"

No.... this fool ain't happy til he gives it ALL back.


And Cheno.... Well, let's not talk about that.

When i got up really high i started betting smaller. If you feel like your streak is over, its best to stop. Lock your money in your room if youhave to. I will prob do that next time. The thing about blackjack is you got to bet big to win big. you can come down just as fast or faster than you wentup. Your lucky if you go up at all.

I'm more of a poker guy so I just try to play hand to hand. Whether I've won or lost the last several hands I'll play my handaccording to how good the cards are (or how good/bad the other players are)

Try leaving the casino one day being up around $800 after coming in there with only $100 and then getting greedy and going back the next day and losing all ofthat PLUS the hundred you had the day before! I was SICK!

you can have the slots, i never win with those. you have the best chance of winning with craps and blackjack. Roulette will kill u too, never playit more than a couple times.

man it happens, at least you left with some money in your pocket i have lost my fair share after being up a nice amount and then got the itch and went and gaveit all back to the casino, the way i look at it now is when i win, that money its my money not money i came up at the casino. the it makes you think twiceabout it. i know a lot of people try to make themselves feel better by saying well its money i came up, but thats what you worked for it, how ever you look atit you hustled for that money.
