    You guys ever struggle to hit what I call the "cashout" bet?

    Okay so for me, I always deposit usually $300 and cash out at $1500-$2500. For my most recent deposit I set a goal of $1650 - $1500 cash out + fees + $50 to put on World Series winner. The dreaded "cash out" bet it ALWAYS haunts me.

    This time, I have reached $1400+ EIGHT TIMES but am 0/8 on the bets to reach $1650. All bets ranging from -200 to +150. I swear its like a curse once you get close to your withdraw. I went from $1580 to $850 yesterday going for my cashout bet. All I needed was 1 of 4 to hit, all lost (was like a martingale type series of bets).

    Its quite annoying when these things happen...balance is back to $1450 hopefully I can hit it today or Tuesday...


    The weird part is the moment my balance falls below $1400 - I ALWAYS win. Above? Never.


    Anyone else seem to have this happen to too??

    Are you asking if people have win limits here? The answer is no.

    Goes against the degenerate's code to stop gambling and take profit. This is the "Bro, I was up 3 Jeezy at the blackjack table, then I got hammered and lost it all. It's all fukking rigged, bro." forum.

    No I'm asking if you set a point at which you cashout and it seems like the bet that will get you to that point NEVER wins.

    9th cashout bet now for me...hope this one FINALLY hits. Otherwise at $1200 again.

    Oh, does anyone here have an elusive win limit that they come close to all the time but never hit?

    No, because they don't set win limits to begin with.

    You might just want to cash out at $1400. Just saying. It's a nice take.

    Payouts are done Tuesday to Friday at the book I'm playing at now. Figured if I have at least $900 come Tuesday I'll cash out whatever it is. Problem is the fee is $100 for the method I want to do so I really wanted $1500 at least in consideration of how much the fee is.

    Luckily I finally hit the elusive "cashout" bet.

    The tennis play I posted just won. Lajovic 7-5, 6-2. Good match and FINALLY going to cash out.

    Time to take day off tomorrow and enjoy the weather.

    Read too many sad stories about people just wanting to round out the cashout from 1450 to 1500 in the casino and losing the lot.

    People set weird arbitrary numbers sometimes. Never understood it.

    Instead, use a trailing stop. if you get to $1300 for example, say you'll stop when it gets down to $1000. If you get to $1600, bump it to "I'll stop at $1250" and just keep doing that. You'll leave room for more winning, but know when to stop and take profit.

    My last deposit of $300 I turned into $3000 and cashed out. So this one I was not as conservative betting wise as I normally am. My usual play is deposit $300, if I make it to $1000 cash out $750. Then take that $250 and try to turn it into $2000-$3000. I did that for awhile and did decent at Heritage Sports before they limited and then banned me when I flipped shit on them for limiting me.

    I don't play as much as I used to, I just invest in stocks now. Less emotional rollercoasters and a lot more +EV experiences long term.

    I feel your pain on the cashout bets.......luckily the last 2 weeks, I've pegged them both right in the a$$.

    Last week, tapped Oakland Sunday afternoon vs Houston.....Oaktown won 14-1
    Last night, tapped Boston -1.5 vs Detroit.....Boston won 11-1.

    Nothing quite like no sweaters on your cashout play. Doesnt happen often, but when it does...its incredible!

    Why don't you change your cash out limit to $2500 but when you reach $2000 change your mind and take out 14 to 15 hundred?

    Shit like the op is saying happens to me all the time. Once you've seen where you are and want more, is when
    it goes down hill. Always trust your 1st thought/ intuition. Whether on a game or to cash out, do it then.
    Don't think, just do.

    i think the problem with gamblers like me is it's a moving target

    i say i'm gonna quit up 1500 and then it becomes one more hand/game and before you know it a losing streak pushes it to 0

    I notice whenever you "keep going" its like karma goes against you. If I try to go past my cashout point seems like my win percentage takes a turn to hell for the worst.

    Thats the problem with most gamblers they never know when to at least take what they invested into it, out. I always like to get 2.5x my money out as quick as possible and leave 1x-2x my initial deposit in the account of "house money" to try and work for the "big score" ($2000-$3000). I almost always deposit $200 or $300 and set a cashout point of $750 (take out $500) or $1000 (take out $750).

    Even though it shouldn't bother me, my account bothers me greatly right now. Its $1652 and I don't want $2 extra dollars. My book won't accept bets of less then $5 so I'm stuck with the $2 extra. No I'm not complaining, I just like even numbers 50s and 100s when I cashout. Taking the day off as I said now and waiting for that wonderful 9am-12pm cashout request tomorrow.

    Also, I always take a week or two after cashing out. Its good to get away from gambling for good periods especially after a nice win and successful cashout. Makes you appreciate taking $ off the table.

    Just hit the ever allusive "cash out" bet. For some dumb reason, I went heavy on a WTA match....Anastasija Sevastova. Hard to pass on a YTD record of 42-6 at + money....I don't care who you play, 42-6 is crazy.

    The greatest feeling in the world is hitting the cash out that and then a day or two later waiting for that cash and putting it in an elastic band and then in your pocket

    Just won one of the best cash-out bets ever

    Had cashout bet of Wash/NY Mets Under 7.5 (-155). Game was sitting at 5-1 after 3.....so obviously a bit upset. So a bit of a tilt bet, I get in game Under 10.......to win the amount of my risk.....basically myself off the board if it ended under.

    5-2 final......got my cashout, and a greater balance going forward.......Gotta Love it.
