RFB
A term used to describe a comp level, usual short for "Room, Food & Beverage" or "Room and Full Board". Typically, a player is brought in on an RFB comp (rather than earning it during a trip). The RFB applies only to what a pre-determined number of people (say 2) might consume and covers only what might be charged to a casino hotel room. However, some common items, such as telephone calls and spa charges are rarely covered by RFB.
RFBL
A term used to describe a comp level, similar to RFB, where "L" stands for Limited. Typically, an RFBL player will be limited to certain restaurants or certain dollar amounts (less then RFB)
Risk of Ruin
The probability that, given a certain bankroll, a gambler will be ruined. For video poker, the Risk of Ruin is generally computed for an infinite number of hands, since the computation easier, though it can also be computed for any number of hands. However, if the number of hands is not specified, it is assumed to be infinite. The (infinite run) Risk of Ruin is always greater then zero for video poker, including positive games, since the variance is always non-zero. For all negative expectation situations, the Risk of Ruin is always 100%. That is, regardless of the bankroll, a gambler who plays a bad game will eventually go broke. The Risk of Ruin decreases as the size of the bankroll in betting units increases. Hence, decreasing game denomination (unit or wager) at a fixed bankroll decreases Risk of Ruin.
