Gambling/General : The Right Attitudes When Making Bets

By Andrea Klein

Level: Jun 27th 2007
There are three attitudes that should be present when making bets. These are positivism, neutrality and hope. Some gamblers think that it is enough to make the bet when the positive attitude and the neutral one are present. Keeping a positive attitude is always the best choice even when you have to put up with a losing bet, the player still feels he will win in the long run. Such kind of attitude is very helpful in oppressing short term losing lines.

Neutral is a bet; say in poker, that if the pot odds are right, the player will make the bet with no particular feeling. The bet is a planned mathematical bet without any feeling or idea.

The winning positive attitude is favorable in every form of gambling to making winning lines and enduring short term losing lines. The positive attitude makes it easier to double a winning bet for the next hand of blackjack or the next roll of the dice. It makes you strong-minded on when to push and when to just keep the original bet in place. Some people get this when drinking, but this attitude is a falsely gain attitude and may fall down when put to the test.

A winning attitude that comes from within is hard to beat in poker or many other forms of gambling. Flair and nerve help to form this way of thinking. It allows players in tournaments to risk their entire prospects for the tournament on the call of one hand. It is not a silly call but made either by a read or intuitions that come from the way the hand was played.

Without this inner confidence players can win as long as the cards are running over them and plain chance is deciding the winner. When flair and nerve are not part of the play, then all the confidence in the world does not help much.

One of the ironies of gambling is that pure chance can overcome talent for a period of time. But, after a while in a game the run will end and the talented player will again be in control of the game as long as he gets playable hands. Great poker players or online poker players win many pots with very poor hands well played.

Attitude comes from skill and confidence in your own ability to set the tone of the play for yourself. A confident player can alarm many other players in certain hands.

Let your attitude help you win!
