    And sooner or later, say a max of 8 years, they disappear and you never hear of them or from them, ever.

    I just noticed I am promoted from a junior to regular member now. Hooray! It just sounds like he has not been IDed.

    You guys are good at English. But in the world of risk and reward, there is a priority issue. ROR is just the least important.

    That doesn't mean you've been promoted from clueless to knowledgeable.

    The bigger your bankroll and the more replenishable it is, the less RoR matters. It only becomes completely unimportant if you can afford to lose your entire bankroll, both mentally and financially.

    I just searched your name and found this:
    Gronbog had yesterday won the blackjack tournament, at the Great Blue Heron Casino, and took home a nice amount $30,000 first place winning prize.
    That was four years ago. Admire...

    If you want to maximize your chance of success it would be wise to learn risk of ruin. At certain bet spreads even with a perfect game you can have an 85% chance of losing your bankroll.

    Day 6: I did a lot of scouting and little playing. A lot of games in Vegas on a Saturday are complete garbage and not worth the effort. Weak Pen, poor rules, slow dealers, crowded tables, just stay away from the strip. Result +224 in 2 hours.

    I just am not motivated to learn ROR because I am confident in my skills. Another reason is that I feel people who know too much about RoR are too reserved and thus are not willing to take risks. I am actually experienced in Los Vegas. You need to stay in LV during weekdays because hotels are cheaper and table limits are lower. When I was there, I slept during daytime and woke up to play from 4 am to 9 am. That was the best chance I could make money.
