    I know never to play only to accrue comps, so please no lectures.

    First some background info:
    BJ player with occasional craps and roulette
    Normal bankroll is $12-15k
    Avg bet $200-500 press from there if runnining good
    Home Casino is The Cosmo

    Problem: (if u can call it that)
    My trip last weekend was only my 2nd using this particular host. I went on a run and was up 15k within the first 4 hours of arrival. At this point I was very satisfied with my win and would have shut down the "big" betting for the rest of the trip. However, I was there with a big group of my friends that my host had graciously comp'd upfront (3 rooms total)

    Question: What games could I have played that build theo but have a low variance? In hindsight instead of feeling like I needed to "earn" those comps I should have taken my winnings and paid for my RFB.

    I ended up having 19.25 hours over 3 days at $350/hand... And gave back half. Still a great trip.

    None.

    Stop by and tell your host of your good fortune and decision to not play. A **good** host will say congratulations and thank you for letting them know. They will soon thereafter look to assist you in boking your next trip. They know things will, most likely, even out over time.

    take it and go, if I doubled my bankroll, would have no problem leaving. they made a decision based on the idea you would lose money to them, they were wrong and you should never feel obligated to play. maybe a nice gift for the host?

    That's exactly what I should have done. Tipped her a few hundred and called it a day. Hopefully I get the opportunity again.

    I recommend baccarat. You usually get rated for the amount of shoes you play. You don't have to play every hand also. However, you can loose very quickly. In addition, you win very quickly too. Most times, you will sit near your buy-in.
