    Hey, gambling is shit, even if you're winning, if you're are just starting out, then give it up. Personally when it comes to gambling, the highs are too high and lows too low. I wouldn't recommend anybody start, however if you are determined to travel that rocky road, or like a lot of us veteran players that can't stop, then learn to do it properly.

    I decided for myself over a decade ago after discovering I was hooked to an addiction that has been labelled worst than prostitution and more difficult to throw off than Heroin. If I'm going to gamble, then at least learn to do it properly, to the best of your ability. Learn everything you can from both sides of the table and how casinos operate. Understand your own physiology, if you are an impulsive, lack patience, then you have to control those traits at the tables. I do a lot of self talk when I'm playing, "don't do this", "how would x handle this", all kinds of shit.

    When I have time, I'll dig some MM stuff and create a new thread for you, hopefully you'll digest and take something from the principals.

    Well at least that is solvable, you just have to work on it like we all do. I'm still prone to it. I think the more it is mentioned, the more we type it, it helps reinforce it into our psyche. You can never read enough about discipline and patience.

    Great, at least the cas' didn't get your money, nothing wrong with it, specially after a difficult session. Not all sessions will be difficult.

    What I usually do, is divide the loss into 3 or 4 if it's really bad, and those figures are my goal target for the next few sessions. Achieve session 1, that's it, unless it's 1 shoe, maximum discipline, fatigue is one of your biggest enemy's in a casino environment.

    True, that's what a casino will say after they have taken all your money :D

    Fuck 'em, we all know what they are like, if you're gonna play, then be the most disciplined, smartest player at the table.

    Thats a great way to put it, id like to get into baccarat but not sure how to win my cup of tea would be video poker, losing to double zero wasnt fun, card counting with 1.5 times my win didnt help me at all. Video poker allowed me to walk away a winner with a 10$ 506 and 1007 with 20$ br is it possible to win that amount at the table games? (I said win not beat) but either one applies
