Well my net worth is in the multi-millions of dollars, a blend of real estate, stocks, IRA's, EFT's, mutual funds and of course cash. Llifetime I've lost about sixty-four thousand dollars to the casinos, having played regularly since the mid-nineties. I've told you before that I could play at your level if I chose to, I simply don't see the need or feel the desire to put huge sums into play. I've no problem or issue with you or anyone else betting big; my post only made the point that folks who do so should not use that as a platform to judge themselves somehow "better" than folks who bet less. Money is of course important, but only when there is a lack of funds. once you've amassed enough to pay for your needs and your reasonable wants the remainder is superfluous. MDawg, I've busted your balls before for one reason: your brag of having won fifty sessions in a row, or whatever the outrageous claim was along those lines.; your focus on that shows how central money is to your notions of self-worth. I suggest you study Zen.
