I think this would be the perfect place for my story.

So last week I was at the edgewater, playing high limit baccarat, I jumped up to 3k dollars, cashed out and headed downstairs. I'm a pretty loud gambler especcially because i love to play bonuses or create suspense.

So we go play texas shootout after and I'm playing 2 hands of texas shootout and then a couple of times i was playing 4 hands (from my 2 hands) I had money on the bonus for each of them and the all my 4 hands kept beating the dealers, I hit a couple of bonuses such as 5 of a kind, straight flushes and was being paid out a redicilous amount of chips (keyword chips, because I kept putting weird bets on my bonuses and hands such as 35-65 dollars). I decide that I'll leave on one bad loss where over 1/2 of my hands lose money, so 1500 later I finally cash out. There were these two brown guys behind me watching me, and as i get up the idiot asks me for 10 dollars.

I looked at him funny, said no and walked to the cashier. Thinking that these guys are dead broke and looking to rob someone I get an escort to my car, tell the security what happened and they dealt with it.

When I get in my car my friend freaks out at me saying I'm a shitty gambler and refused to talk to me for a week.

sorry for the poorly grammered story but its 5 am and i've been playing dota all night.

make sure you know what you're doing before you go gamble

and the only game in the casino with the best odds of winning is poker
its the only game where you're not going the casino, you're just taking money from others

Holy shit dude. 1700$? Dude learn this:

Bring a certain amount of $ to the casino.
Let's say 100$. Play some slots or something. If you win some money, you fucking put what you had originally BACK into your pocket, your safe pocket so you don't walk out with NOTHING. Then you use what's left to keep playing until you either lose it all, or whatever.

GL.

wow guys. How did you guys save the money in the first place?

If you want me to make it sound better, the depreciation on a brand new car is probably more than $1700.

That doesn't mean you should do it again. Learn your lesson and move on.
