Vegas joints averaged 9 million per year in parking fees alone. Parking is. Profitable. Shit unless you’re noir at MGM properties valet is $24

. Got my yearly reminder why I don't play no limit cash in casinos - blew through one buy-in pretty quickly.
Curious what factors make you dislike it. I know you are a tourney guy, so is it just that or something different? From what I hear, casino cash games are super juicy these days.

It’s 100% the stakes. I’m a cheap bastard. A $100 tournament is my comfort zone. I don’t mind going up to $150 or even $250, if the structure is good. But that’s the most I want to lose in a day. And that translates to one buy-in at a cash table. And the game I was at yesterday, it was actually a short buyin (they allow up to $500 buyins at their $1/2, which makes sense with all the straddling.).
So when I play cash at a casino, I’m working with one bullet and it’s usually scared money. Obviously I don’t do well.

I also lack patience at no limit cash tables. It’s strange. In a tournament, with levels and a clock, I can be the most patient guy in the joint. Because I know eventually it will be the right time to do something.
But at a cash table, I’m always waiting for something to happen, and I don’t have the patience to wait very long.
