I'm prepared for the abuse I will probably get for this post but also figure I'll get a few helpful responses.
My goal is to play the rest of my life on my $10000 bankroll and still get the comps I'm used to. There, I've said it, go ahead and let me have it. I understand that for some of you AP is your livelihood. It's not mine. I play because I love to play. That being said I don't want to replace my bankroll every few months. I played BJ for a long time before I decided to learn to count. Since I have a limited number of stores near my home the employees (both dealers and pit bosses) knew me well when I was just a BS (no pun intended) player. The places I visit in Vegas also knew me well before and treat me well. They comp me suites, food and limos. On recent trips the pit closed an empty carnival game table and opened a BJ table for me. Granted these are lower end properties but I've found decent games there. If the games were bad I wouldn't be there. The biggest advantage I've found with my situation is that I can get away with a decent spread with no heat at all AND play as long as I want.
So there has to be a question in all of this right? How do I kwwp my bets up and reduce my RoR? It seems like everything I've read about reducing it is either drop your bet or find better games. Are there any other options? Any additional thoughts on how I can reach my goal?
