Smart and exactly how it should be done if one is going to have this entertainment. Well said Steve.There are some Indian Casinos not too far from me but I've never been to any. I used to go to a few nearby Indian Casinos when I was stationed in Texas, but the was 25+ years ago. My game was Blackjack and I was pretty decent. About 20%-30% of the time I would loose a bit or break about even, the other 70%-80% of the time I would 2X-3X my money. Lots of people gambling will say that they "have a system" for how they play with varying degrees of success. Well I had a system too, but mine was about how to manage my bets rather than the game play. Basically I kept track of how much I was winning vs how many hands I lost. Every 10-12 losing hands I would compare how much I won vs how much I lost in that time. I would then reset my "winning" number back to zero and keep a count of the next 10-12 loses. This helped to keep emotions out of it and treat the experience as a simple business accounting exercise, tracking profits and expenses at regular intervals.
