Tell you what you worry about pay tables and I will keep watching my bankroll grow, am done with idiocy.
Over and over I see gamblers get lucky and suddenly think they're geniuses.

But you're keeping a level head.

Now how did I know Dinghy would be quick to respond to this thread. VP is for fun and enjoyment. There is no get rich quick scheme with VP. Much of it is luck and timing which also means luck. At any rate, I like Wildman will try and just enjoy the game and overall casino amenities. If money comes our way fine. If not and that would change our life for the worse, I shouldn’t be playing anyway.

True. But, why pay more for that enjoyment than you have to. Playing the best games, with close to optimal strategy is the best way to keep your costs down. Why not do it?

I’m in the best tables camp too. I short coin and give away edge a third of the time, so let’s optimize on table at least.

I play the best games about 90 percent of the time. For whatever reason, I play some lower games too. Sometimes because I like the game and sometimes because nothing else has worked. Yes it would seem like the best tables would return the best. I have just found the short run is much longer than most people realize. My most recent example was my other half playing inferior tables 90 percent of the time and percentage wise losing much less than me over the course of entire year. This isn’t the only year that has happened as well.
