    Same here. Since I don't play with markers where every dollar wagered is my own, seeing someone taking a big hit curbs my play as well.

    If I am up a good chunk and once I see some whale signing another slip after a huge draw down I just say to myself.... Take some time off you still have a couple of days to go so slow down there buddy. Go grab something to eat or if it is late in the evening I just head to bed until early in the morning to play again.

    And that has kept me in the game for so long. Took a while to develop this skill and very glad that I was able to.

    I'd bet Chuck is really careful never to order the same drink as Tiger or MJ. :wink2:

    I wonder what the table minimum was on the other half of the table

    $10.

    People were waiting to play in the hopes of winning for this guy.

    The closest I've ever been to seeing/hearing of a true whale was in the LV Space Needle.

    Was playing BJ in the Party Pit and two of the dealers started talking about a guy in a private room (didn't think The STRAT would have these). There was some talk about whether or not he was tipping chocolates. Again, being the Strat I assumed they were talking about $100s, turns out this guy bets 5gs for every dealer when they come in - changes every 20 mins there. Dealers keep their own tips. Makes my 'white chocolate' tokes seem a bit irrelevant.

    Haven't actually seen a chocolate on the main floor there, only seen Ks on the craps tables, so I assume these are used in the private rooms only.

    Hoping to find out more on this one in a few days....
