    The ratio of stop win limit to stop loss limit will be roughly equal to the ratio of number of losing sessions to winning sessions. I would assume as an interesting cover one would lose most of the sessions but win a few of them in bigger numbers. Mostly lose but rarely win big is typical degenerate gambler MO. Then again I am in no position to make any suggestion to any AP.

    This has probably been mentioned but hot damn that spreadsheet is tilting me. You should use formulas and whatnot instead of manually typing everything in. It’d be more clean and accurate that way, take less time when entering data, and not to mention, you can make graphs & charts easier so you can get a better feel and understanding of your results.

    I didn't even notice. I stopped watching after I saw it looked like a found footage documentary.

    Now that’s funny. It even had that shaky camera feel.

    I use google sheets with a few formulas already made. I can update it from my phone while waiting in the cage line to cash house. I add in the date, amount +/- for the day, hours played and location. Formulas calculate lifetime +/-, hourly +/-, and populate two graphs. Helps to stomach the negative variance days to see where you are overall.

    What games do you play mostly 6D, 2D?
    What's your usual spread?
    Is this just pure counting?

    I don't believe ANYONE wins 71% of their sessions, unless its a smallish number of sessions. It's like someone saying they are a 70% sports bettor. It doesn't exist.

    Sigh. Would it be possible to short-circuit this utterly useless discussion before it grows to 250 posts?

    "Sessions" are in the eye of the player. They can be as short as ten minutes or as long as ten hours. Every player defines what he or she personally calls a "session" differently. See BJA3, bottom of page 21 for more on the topic.)

    If your strategy is to play a double-up progression, and quit as soon as you get ahead one unit, defining that as a "session," you can win close to 100% of your "sessions" ... until the fatal, last one, when you go bankrupt!

    So can everyone please do us a favor and stop talking about what percentage of your sessions you win? No one cares.

    Apologies, I'm kind of new to the lingo and "sessions" is something that I have heard and read about quite a bit around here and other places. Maybe "single casino visits" would make more sense.

    But that's neither here nor there....in your book Don don't you even mention aiming not to win a TON from a single visit to a single casino. So as not to shove their face in it.

    While it might not be much in the long run or in Vegas or A.C., I've gotten a lot of attention winning $750 or more from the low limit tables around me. Frankly, some pitties start freaking out....
