I ended up about 1800, but enjoyed some $3,000 worth of freebies.
Lost money on slots/VP dispite almost $1500 in freeplay. Worse year in quite awhile on that score. Not a single W-2 this year.
Had a major score in Vegas buying a collection of comic books and art from a store that was belly-up. When all is said and down, I'll be up well into five figures from my forty days in Nevada.

Zg, to answer your question, I made a new thread, as to not hijack the current, wonderful thread at hand.

Unfortunately, it's impossible for me to separate out what I won from blackjack from what I won from all games. When you play with partners, it's not easy to account for such things, without requiring highly detailed play reports and putting together fancy spreadsheets. Also, there's the question of how to allocate expenses, to get from gross win to net win.

I strongly disagree. Blackjack isn't a bridge tournament. It's not about winning points. It's all about how much money you win, and exactly how you get there is a secondary consideration.

Here is what I meant. If you and I each lost $10000 for the year but your unit size was $100 and mine was $10, I say you did a better job playing the game. Using units makes a better comparison as far as I am concerned.

If you bet 5$ unit and make 1000 units a year. It's okay..
But if play 500$ a unit, making 1000units a year- it tell that you have managed the heat and cover successfully.

This would all make sense if this were some sort of competition. But it's not.

I never said it was a competition, did I? Comparing dollar amount certainly has its merit. However, if my unit size were $1000 and I won $5000 for the year, I would not feel too good about it compared to if my unit were $10.
