Now that you've arranged a bankroll, your session can begin. This is the gaming activity in which you participate, in between time you buy in and cash out.
Ideally your bankroll should be large enough to finance a number of sessions, each of which represent a strategic tug of war between you and the casino. Your objective is to win the majority of these battles.
The reaon for subdividing your bankroll into sessions is to contain your losses in the event that you get caught up in the heat of the moment, and lose the kind of rigid control over the monetary flow that is a prerequisite to success in this effort. Remember, this loss of control on the part of the players is what paid for all those magnificent chandeliers in the casinos!
How much should you invest in a session? Depends on your betting level, bankroll, and in some cases intuition. At an online casino with $1 bet minimums, one might be able to accomplish amazing things with just $70. But in a real casino with its higher bet minimums, you'll need a bit more.
Mainly, you'll want to have enough to dig yourself out of the hole you may fall into right off the bat. Usually, it takes time (and money) to adjust to the proclivity of the table.
How long should a session last? As long as you decide, but you should make that decision, before buying in and stick to it no matter what they throw at you.
