    That is different to each and every individual.

    One million dollars. Then you can play at $100 minimal 6D BJ table which should give you the best rules the house will give BJ players. Spread 16 to 1 or 20 to 1.

    Does that mean that you lost $20,000?

    It is good that you do not find the two deck games anyway if the minimum is $50 and you show up with with $2000.

    Bosox, one can have a $100k bank roll but still carry $2000 for a short session at a $50 DD game. Say, you sat down with a $4000 session BR, lost $2k, you wouldn’t say I have just $2k left and quit the session?

    Ok, one can have a total BR of $2000, take a kamikaze approach and play that $50 table rather than grind away at @ $5 table.

    That's just dumb. With a 1 to 6 spread, H17, DAS, 65% pen, your ROR is about 85%

    Either Double deck playing 1.25-1.5 decks down or six deck playing 1.5 to 1 deck down H17 DAS. Honestly I'm willing to play whatever game the casino offers as long as the conditions aren't garbage. 25K starting bankroll (28K at the beginning of this trip) $25-$200x2 spread although at places with a $10 or $15 minimum I'll do $10-$200x2. I'm not anywhere close to high roller status, but I'll consider myself successful when I can responsibly bet two hands of $500.

    Day 4: needed a day to recoup and catch up on work before heading further out. I came home to some time with my wife. To prepare for tomorrow I ate moderately healthy, exercised, and soaked up some sun. The plan is to head to Vegas tomorrow. Hopefully we get some decent play time before getting fliered.

    When is an appropriate time to restructure my bet sizing? Is there a general rule such as a 25% swing in either direction?

    Craven, I hope that you kick some ass starting tomorrow.

    It all boils down to your propensity for risk and what does that $25K mean to you and your family. Only you know how much risk you are willing to undertake.
