We go to Vegas to have fun, right? So setting win goals and loss limits can cut into your gambling Jones. However it is better to receive than to give, at least when it comes to the tables in Vegas. (or any other form of gambling) be it Video Poker or Slots or whatever, one can say it is more fun to win. So the dilemma, if we have won our win goal, pocketed at least half of the winnings, and played on until we hit our second win goal or the streak has petered out but ... WE still have some of our winnings rat holed in our pocket (books) and we have walked away after a good session and we are UP! Should we walk away? Hell Yes! Now, how often does that happen? Not often enough according to Steve Wynn, who boasts he keeps 20% of every gambling dollar that flows through his casinos. So you might ask; "how can that happen?" Well, most of us who are advantage players wouldn't even go to the Wynn to gamble. Or anywhere else on the Strip for that matter with the exception of the High Limit Blackjack tables with minimum bets of $25 during the week, weekends higher. The fact is most folks don't know how to gamble. They know how to put a bet down, or pull a slot handle, or maybe they have a limited amount of knowledge of the game they choose to play, but they don't really know how to gamble. Why ? Because money management is as much a part of gambling as is knowlege of the game. I'm an expert level player, I know the rules and strategy of all of my games of choice but what good does that do me without a solid money management system? The short answer is NONE! Now, love him or hate him John Patrick has come up with one of the best money management systems I've ever used, and it has saved my bacon so many times I can't tell you, and it has also allowed me to maximize my winnings when I do get lucky. So, do what you will but if you are going to get serious about winning you really might want to look into a Good "Money Management System".
