My friend broncofn got me thinking and I wanted to ask this question to you all here instead of on someone's TR . The amount doesn't matter (It is all relative). The only poignant fact is.... You have increased your BR and average wager over the last many years. You now either have a different financial situation, you just don't want to throw money away anymore or simply don't want to use a large BR anymore. Can you still enjoy Las Vegas and travel there the same amount of yearly trips if you decrease your BR and avg bet substantially? Again, the amount is all relative but here are a few examples. 3000 a hand to 300, 1500 a hand to 100 or 100 a hand to 5.00. Or, a bankroll of 3000 a day to 300 a day and so on.. For me, the past 4 years I have been playing at a much higher level (I happen to be lucky over the last 4 years and im wayyyy up). I really don't think I could go back down. The rush wouldn't be the same. I also like the perks too much at the higher level. Suites, food, shows, fights, clubs, limos, RFB and so on. Bottom line, If I went down to a 100 level (Which I know is still a lot) but still could afford the higher level im a little embarrassed to say I might be in Las Vegas once a year instead of 12. You? For me its Las Vegas but I know some of you go to Indian casinos, casinos in the mid west, back east and so on. No matter where you go can you still go as much and wager a fraction of what you once did? I have read some post here and want to add... Remember, anyone can reduce the amounts for one or two trips a year. Can you or are you willing to substantially lower your BR and/or average bets for all your casino trips during the whole year? Are the perks just too good to lower your averages? Do you not get the same adrenaline rush from substantially lowering your wagers? Do you feel bad when you lose 100% of your BR? I know when I lose 100% of my BR sometimes I want to take a break from trips. But I don't think I can start wagering 5.00 instead of 300 a hand or whatever you wager.
