I've gotten some feedback when I mention the psychological edge. So what is it? You should always have at least double the amount of your buy in available to gamble. If you buy in for $1000 then you play to $500. If you lose you still walk with half your stake. You didn't lose it all. You still have a stake for tomorrow. If you buy in with $500 and lose it all it's like a kick in the stomach. You think the casinos don't know this? They prey upon human nature. If you're kicked while you're down you're less likely to come back for your revenge. You'll just go home like every other sucker and tell all your friends what a great time you had in Vegas losing your entire bankroll. Hope you get some comps! You probably will because the casinos have you number. You are a loser! So they want you to come back! Not Me! If you play your cards right and have a good money management strategy in place and you stick to it you will have longer sessions, you'll win more often and you will definitely have more fun because believe me, winning is better than losing. Now, argue with that pilgrim.
