    I never said I have a six figure blackjack bankroll. I said I could easily make one which is true. I have enough money in demand accounts (checking, savings, money market, and cash on hand) to make one. I wouldn't have to touch my mutual funds, stocks, CD's or 401(k) to do so. By the way, my 401(k) is only about $15,000 less than when I retired even though I have withdrawn more than $177,000 from it.

    I really don't know what my blackjack bankroll is. If I need some money for blackjack, I just withdraw some from the bank. I do know I'm never going to risk $100,000 at blackjack. The biggest losing year I ever had was less than $4,000 and if I ever lost more than $10,000 in a year, I would probably quit for the year. One's bankroll is really what one is willing to lose at blackjack, not how much one has. So in my case I'm guessing if I ever lost as much as $30,000 I would give it up. Then again, maybe not. I like playing the game.

    I don’t think you need to explain yourself to counting is fun. His comment was extremely ignorant. You can explain it but he won’t understand.

    I think I found an even better deal on a Laughlin to Vegas trip. This is what I would do if I can ever find another charter to Laughlin that covers 4 days like Monday to Friday. Most of these trips are only 3 days, but they do have some 4 day charters.

    Anyway, arrive in Laughlin on Monday then at 5:00 am Tuesday catch the FleixBus up to downtown Vegas arriving at 7:00 am. Will have all day to spend in downtown Vegas. Probably spend the night at the Downtown Grand. It looks quite inexpensive and then the next day on Wed have the Gray Lines Laughlin Tour Bus take me back to Laughlin. It appears they pick up at the various hotels. When you get back to Laughlin you get a $5 food voucher and $10 match play at the Golden Nugget. All this for only $14. Net cost $5 for return trip. I'm assuming or at least hoping they will let you take the bus only one way.

    If the bus is cheap, it might be a good deal even if they sell only two-way tickets. After all, they cannot force you with a gun to reenter the bus for journey back ;-)

    People do that with airlines. It's called hidden city ticketing. The airlines really frown upon it though. I doubt the bus would be an issue.

    I have to agree. He makes plenty of ignorant comments. Some may say the same about me, however, the actual fact is that I don’t take shit, and there’s a difference.

    Yeah you're right Midwest sorry, your bankroll is none of my business. It's just crazy to me that you could play higher stakes with a larger bankroll but you choose not to. I am no high roller, but to play for such small EV is just not exciting to me, and not worth the travel and everything else that we have to put up with. But that's nobody's business, to each their own...good variance!

    [QUOTE=Midwest Player;274048]I'm trying to figure out a cheap way to get to Vegas. /QUOTE]

    To be honest I think your best bet to get there in the cheapest way possible is to walk. It'll also do you the most good. It may take a while but at least you'll arrive (if you do) knowing that you've accomplished your task in the cheapest way possible.

    I only play blackjack because that's where they keep a lot of the chips.
