- "Sin", woo, and similar subjects are on-mission. Gambling does involve them. The article could use more content and some shuffling, though... ~ Kupochama 09:25, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
Bankroll management under 'woo'
Bankroll management is a fairly time-tested and well-known part of professional and even amateur playing, the main idea that limits must be observed to keep expected variance from completely wiping out your bankroll, and that your bankroll is big enough to absorb the expected variance at the levels you play at without wiping out your bankroll. It's fairly well-grounded, well explained in guides such as http://www.thepokerbank.com/strategy/basic/bankroll-management/, and I don't see it really belonging here. Not that this is a particularly notable article. AntiDeathPill (talk) 03:51, 5 January 2014 (UTC)
Several minor edits have been made to the martingale (it's a one-way ticket to bankruptcy), poker (card counting exists, but is a very different practice from what's seen in blackjack) and card counting (on countermeasures). Considering adding a section on the Kelly criterion, used by professional gamblers regardless of their game to optimize their particular risk-reward relationship.

- Hat tip to Octo8 for catching an "if" that should have been an "even if". Must have missed that from making too many small edits at once. Frostbyte (talk) 07:10, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
The only way to make money from gambling
... is to provide the goods and services 'gamblers (of various types)' actually want.
Or - 'play the designated spending money' once only (so you walk away with whatever money comes your way) or 'play a variety of games until starting money and winnings are used up' and you have enjoyed trying everything. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:02, 15 March 2017 (UTC)
The mills of the TV preachers continue to grind, and the poor continue to finance the rich, just as if the glittering temples and palaces of Las Vegas had been built by the money of those who won rather than those who lost.
