Bought in on a $5 table at the Tropicana last week. Started out betting $5 and upped it one unit per win, capping at 5 units. My plan was to play the streak, and hope for a good run. Hopped back and forth from player to banker for a while, stayed about even. Then it came. An 11 player streak! I capped out my betting at $25 per hand. But during that streak I was able to bring in 5 green chips. I continued playing the streak but the most I ever got my bet back up to was 4 units. Played out the rest of the shoe and probably made $15 to $20 more. That one streak was enough to more than double my buy in.
