Sonia, you did absolutely right by taking insurance on that BJ.
Your goal is a winning session, not the proper play, and if the hand makes a final difference, and you're about to leave take the money and run.
That's what casino's fear the most, people who're out there to win, not to play properly every hand, all these idiots authors calling for a perfect play for each end every hand no matter what are either complete morons or casino employees.
In Mr. Wong's book he describes how he lost on his way out of town(I don't remember the exact numbers) 7k in 30 minutes of the 12k he won during 2 weeks, and he thinks it's OK. What can I say to that? Is that what winning players do? Yeah, right.
I've had a 2 year winning streak in each and every session I've played, so it's possible.
