Do you chase comps, hoping that you will get something for "free" on your next trip to Vegas? Do you ever play at a higher level than your wallet can support? As a buddy of mine were talking the other day these questions came to my mind...as we have a mutual friend who does both. My advise to newbies and oldies when traveling to Vegas don't chase comps. I also tell people don't play at a higher level than your wallet can support. This all goes back to proper bankroll management. I have seen countless times new players in Vegas throw down a wad of cash and play at a $25 or $50 hand BJ table and loose there money very quickly then they walk away like they just spent their paycheck. The last time I was sitting at the HL room at Monte Carlo this young couple came in and threw down $1000 in cash and played at $100 a hand. Lost the bankroll in like 20 mins, as they obviously have never played BJ before and were making terrible calls for cards. I tried to help them but got the "I know what I'm doing". I heard the women say to the guy after they lost their bankroll and walked away "how much money do we have left for the next 2 days", the guys says "not much". I also want to add that a $3K 3 day bankroll at Bellagio won't get you much...but this same bankroll at Luxor or Excalibur will get you more. Heck this bankroll at IP will get you most anything you want..... People with lower end bankrolls who stay at higher end places and expect to receive the world are just not being realistic. You have to be realistic and stay at a property where your bankroll size will get you more bang for your buck.
