Table Bankroll-Wrong Bettors

If you're betting wrong, you should bet at least $5 on don't pass in order to lay the $6 against the 6 and 8 at 6-5 odds. If you follow a complete cycle of don't pass $5 bets, laying single odds along with two don't come bets, also with single odds, you'll have bet approximately $40.

To have an adequate bankroll for utmost protection against temporary losses, you'd need at least $300 in reserves for each session of play.

A $10 bettor, following the same cycle, would need about $80 to complete each cycle of bets and therefore would have to have $550 in reserve for that single session of gambling. The total bankroll would be about seven to ten times the single-session bankroll, or between $3,800 and $5,500.

Many players are going to look at these figures and shake their heads in dismay. They expect to come to the casino for a few days' play with a couple of hundred dollars in their and get involved in pockets, perhaps five hundred at the most heavy action. But they can't have heavy action with that kind of bankroll.

What should they do then? They'll just have to play the minimum games. With $500 they can't really afford to bet more than $2 at a time on line bets not if they expect to be , ground for a few days. With $200 a $1 games will be more their speed. Otherwise, they're tempting quick disaster, and they can be wiped out before they even get the free drink from the cocktail waitress.

The Loose-Aggressive Player
Assuming that you're not getting clobbered, the loose-aggressive style is a fun way to play. You become the center of attention, the chips flow in, and players who don't know you watch in awe. The problem is that most of the time it doesn't work. You pay a very heavy price for the intermittent reinforcement you get on the nights when you catch cards.

People sometimes adopt the loose-aggressive style because they watch it work for someone in a tournament. The style is more effective in tournament play than in money play because there's no tournament payoff for grinding out one or two big bets an hour. Winning one big bet an hour might let you finish 30th or 40th out of 100, and while it might feel good to tell your friends you did that when you're first starting out, eventually you'll realize that in a 100-player tournament, there's no financial difference between finishing 100th and finishing 20th. You get paid nothing either way. This doesn't mean you should adopt a loose-aggressive style in tournaments (tight-aggressive is better for most people), but at least it can work there; it can't work in money play.
