I used to play BJ a long time ago and then stopped because of losing too much money, and have recently started again. This time I am trying to do things somewhat more correctly. My biggest problem is not knowing when to stop, walk away, take a break, etc.. I have been reading about bankrolls on this forum but unfortunately this is not the way I do things. I have at one point turned $100 into $5K, 8k, 20k. I normally start with $500 or $1000 that I bring with me and play $50 a hand until things go well, then raise it to $100, 150, and usually up to 800-1000 a hand depending how great the cards are running. Is it naive of me to think that I can start with $500-1000 and turn that into a $1,000 profit each day and walk away from that? Making $1,000 profit starting with $1,000 bankroll is not hard for me. Sometimes I can do it in 5 minutes, other times in a few hours. Should I just walk away after I make the $1,000 or keep playing and try to squeeze out more. This is more a question of my money management than my BJ skills.
