    Have a few kids so you don't have the money to do that in the first place.

    I got trick rolled on my first night in Vegas if it makes you feel any better.

    Shit happens. Take the opportunity to use what happened as a lesson.

    Well if you didn't take a huge hit financially, cut you loses and do something different. Hit up the clubs and the other spots. Find some female to help you forget about it.

    Here's a tip:

    If you're playing blackjack, never play at the Strip. Bunch of fucking dumb tourists who can't play for shit are there. You wanna go to Old Vegas, like Fremont Street or California Casino, where the latter has $5 minimum for no-peek double deck. Or go where all the locals play: Stations Casinos e.g. Sunset Station or Green Valley Ranch.

    Oh, and another thing: always split 8's and Aces. Always hit on 16's if the dealer's upcard is 7 or above. Know when to double down on your soft hands. And for the love of Jebus, never split faces or 10. That's fucking retarded.

    Always bet on the Spurs to cover the spread. They've been winging it hard this year.

    Next time you're in Vegas just enjoy the architecture and live entertainment and leave the gambling to the big boys.

    I posted about this not too long ago in the "Tell Me Your Secrets" thread, I'll quote it and add some more details.
    I was down in Vegas for UFC 181 and meeting my friend from Riverside, California. When we arrived on Friday we headed straight for The Stratosphere. After that I pounded a few drinks, then we headed to the Hard Rock, where I pounded more drinks:
    UFC was fun though lol.

    Never bankroll what you can't afford to lose, and the losses shouldn't hurt as much - sometimes you are going to lose, so always be prepared for it. If losing 1/3 of your money is depressing the shit out of you, don't bankroll 1/3 of your money.

    Save back up a bankroll if gambling is you thing and take the time to learn/master your game inside out, if this loss is going to hit you financially, don't make the same mistake of taking 1/3 of your money.
