Went to Snoqualmie Casino last night. Saw Doug Baldwin at the table next to me. I wanted to say hi but I had a stack of chips where I was so I had to stay put.

I quadrupled my money and then lost it all. The End.

Happy Father's Day Fathers!

Hey, man. Tell me what isn't. So I can go do that. Not enjoy myself and never feel the urge to do it again. Thanks.

If you're up 4x the amount, you walk away with a profit. Unfortunately, too many people get greedy and the odds crap all over them. The casinos know this too. Say 1 out of every 10 people gets to that 4x profit mark you hit. Well, if you take 10 of those people that got to that point, I bet no more than 3 would walk away. That's 3 out of 100 walking away with a decent amount profit. I set myself a limit of $50. If I lose it, I lose it. I don't spend more. If I double up or more, I walk away. Not upset if I lose it and happy if I double up. No biggie to me.

Whatever works for you though. It is your money, or was.

^There's a line in a fun video game that I just completed that rings true:


The goal of the house is NOT to avoid losing a hand to you.

The goal of the house is just to keep you at the table.

LOL...Close! It was 20 bucks. I'm a real big spender. :)

I was playing roulette. Love that game. And no, I'm not addicted. I probably gamble once a year and always spend what I can afford to lose.

Now watch, the media will come out with a story saying that the Hawks are all heavy gamblers, who are all on PED's, and will come up with a way to say that he "threatened" coach Hairball all at the same time :)

I'm going to Vegas in ~7 weeks with some friends and roulette's my game of choice, too. I'll probably blow a grand at it, or more. I know it has the worst odds (I think) of all the major games in a casino, but there's just something about it that I find very enjoyable.

Yeah I don't know about odds with it but I find it very forgiving. I put $20 down and played for an hour with over $100 in winnings on average. Sometimes I just play color. A lot of fun and not much thinking involved.

1) The amount we start with depends on how much we have. I agree with the general premise - don't gamble what you can't afford loosing. Sat next to more than one person crying because they gambled away the paycheck they just got a few hours earlier........

2) I pull the starting bet when I hit double. It is off the table and won't make it back that night. Always worked for me. When should you walk away? At double / tripple / quadrouple - get off the high horse there is no rule that is better than the others. The longer you sit the likelier you are to pay the casino back but if you got entertained what is the harm?

I once spent 13 hours in Tampa playing poker walked away with $50 more on the pocket. As I always say if it was about the money I would have made more working at McDonalds that night....... instead I saved a whole lot more than if I had taken the wife out for dinner and a movie and guess what I had a lot of fun the whole time.

Now to the main post of this money. Not even a Seahawks player close by gets you to leave the spot that had you quadruple your money. Agree - 100%!
