Interesting post. This reminds me of the difference between cash games and tournaments in poker, and how they require different strategies. In cash games (where you can cash in your chips and leave at any point) it makes sense to play conservatively and try to win a couple bucks, then leave when you're ahead. But in tournament-style poker, you have to play much more aggressively and take bigger risks because it's really all or nothing.
