Merby,I'm not saying you'd have to announce where you are a stopping ahead of time. So, each roll you would have a 5/6 chance of doubling. Your post implies that you have to announce a predetermined stopping point.
I'm not implying that you have to choose a predetermined stopping point. Nevertheless, if I were to face this game, I would have in my mind --a priori-- the probabilities of successfully reaching each payout, and would have already decided at which point I will stop (assuming I don't roll a 6 before that).

right, sureIt's "dumb" to not risk losing 65,000-ish 1/6 times.come on, Utility Theory.
Utility theory: I have to pay the Utilities so protect your profit?I would shoot for a million, then stop. I think I have a self destructive side of myself that requires I lose. I play with matches too.
