Playing Notes: Staying too long at the tables.
How many times have you entered into a game and started
winning right from the very start. Then you have stayed
at the table too long and are now losing all of your
newly earned profits. At this point you begin chasing
your losses and depleting your hard earned bankroll.
Living in Las Vegas, or any other gaming town, it is a
lot easier to walk away from the table when you have won
early in the game. Because you already live in town, you
know that there is always tomorrow for another shot at
But when you are just visiting town for a few days, you
want to take advantage of as much playing time as
possible. And this is just what the casinos are banking
on, that need to stay and play longer than you normally
Personally, I play to win, and not to just to play. But
that is a very hard discipline to learn.
Another problem you may encounter is when you are
visiting with friends. It is even harder to leave the
game if all the others want to stay and play. On the
other hand, if you are playing a solo session, or with
someone who understands the value of leaving when you
are winning, you can take full advantage of the adage
"leaving a winner".
I play a lot of solo sessions, or quick "hit and run"
sessions with my Webmaster, Pablo. We both understand
that when we are winning, we color up and move on.
A good example of this occurred just before the last
Hilton Craps Tournament. Pablo and I went specifically
to qualify for this tournament and our plan was to leave
as soon as we were successful. It did not matter if we
were up or down at that point, we were just going to
We both started off well, setting for a "YO" 11 and
hitting craps numbers. And since this was happening, we
were betting the Horn numbers, (you know the ones in the
center, the bets I tell you not to bet). After three
rounds of the dice, I finally hit the "YO" 11 and we
were both up several hundred dollars. It would of been
easy to stay and continue playing, but why risk losing
our newfound monies by just playing. We called it a day
and happily left the casino on a positive note.
As I am always reminding my students; Remember that
after two hours of play, physical and mental fatigue
sets in and you are not as focused as you should be.
Again the casino counts on this and you will end up
giving your money back to the casino.
Another good example of leaving a winner happened just
the other day. Pablo and I went to a casino on the strip
for a quick hit and run session. Pablo was shooting from
the S/O position and on his first roll he hit 40+
numbers! Now we were both up several hundred dollars and
at that point I elected not to shoot. We both left the
casino winners, with a very nice profit for the day.
So whether you live here, or are just in town for a few
days, always -

modification and adopting your betting tactics,
that this will work well in the long run.
