I prefer limiting the amount I will lose
. At some point, losing makes me kinda sad and tilty. So setting that losing limit keeps my bankroll in existence.
If I am winning, I'm going to keep playing. Unless I have to go do something else, like, um, work or sleep. Why would one set a limit on how much one wins? (OK, there is the tilt that one gets when one is on a heater -- you start to play hands you shouldn't because you cannot lose....until you do.)
I can only play for so long, though. Too long, I get tired and my game goes south.
Actually, stopping when you have won a certain amount would keep you from losing it, and would mean your bankroll keeps increasing. Maybe it's not stupid.
