Tiggerkidz, remember one thing. IT’S YOUR DAMN MONEY! You can bring as much or as little as you damn well please. Just because some guy tells you you need to bring 1K to the casino doesn’t mean you should. I tend to take forum goer’s advice with a grain of salt, especially when they have someone like Lee Tutor in their signature. But that’s just me.
If you want to just bring $200, that’s 40 bets of five numbers with $1 each flat betting. If you lose all 40 spins, there is something seriously freaking wrong with what you are doing, and the last thing you want to do is have another $800 in your pocket and think you win it all back by jumping your bets. Yet, people do just that. When I go to the casino, I never bring my entire bankroll. That’s just ridiculous. There is never anything that amazing that happens at the casino that would justify it. At least where I am.
If your wife will kill you for losing 1K, then DON’T BRING 1K. Not saying you are going to lose, but so many of the guys on these forums are so full of crap when it comes to how successful they are that they are the LAST people you should be taking financial advice from. Well, dealer’s are bigger idiots, but some forum members aren’t that far behind. BTW, I am not just referring to this forum, roulette forums in general are full of posers.
Anyone who tells you how much to bring to a casino without even asking what your edge on a specific wheel, what kind of conditions you have, etc. is quite frankly an idiot. I never advise people to place a single bet until they are sure they have an edge over a specific wheel and have measured and calculated that edge. And then, you should never bet any higher than a Kelly bet. Personally, I bet much less than a full kelly. You’d be surprised how much money you can make with just a buy in of a couple hundred bucks. Don’t believe some guy, with 3 posts, tell you “That’s just the way it is”. I am assuming you are a grown man, and can make your own judgement as to how much you need to bring to a casino. There is no shame in not placing a single bet if you can’t afford it, and you certainly should place a single bet unless you are sure you have an edge.
If you were fortunate to take $50 bucks and run it up to $1000 in one night and not have any problems doing it? Why the hell would you think you needed to bring $1000 when $50 seemed to do just fine. Not sure how the hell you did it without any problems, but you get my point! lol.
Anyway, good luck nonetheless.
