MrJ posted this quote in the Wise Quotes topic:

Shallow men believe in luck. Strong men believe in cause and effect.
 - Ralph Waldo Emerson

My answer was:
Call me what you want.  I do believe in luck. And I think men who don't believe in luck are probably either naive or arrogant. 8)

Do YOU believe in luck?
Why? Why not?

Luck plays a big part in gambling. In roulette the odds of winning a spin (make a profit) can be varied through your bet selection so you can manipulate luck into expectation but not to certainty.

The next spin prediction subject has been debated extensively on the forum and although there is a degree of accuracy, all agree that predicting every spin correctly can not be done. So even predictions rely on luck as it is not an exact science.

Luck = Rely (same thing)

If you have to rely on it in order to win, dont even bother going. Stay home.

Luck exist. Otherwise, how can you justify success of the people you do not like?

  if a player get undeserved wins in a bunch, no matter who plays, I guaranty they will feel very lucky that day. it happens to all of us, and more often then we actualy remember. it is a funny thing, but I have noticed talking and speaking with many players over the years, that 80% of them remember more the "unlucky bad streaks then the good ones always". I think it is in our belief system. I always hear about the stories where they get the worst deal as they explain those bad "times", but rarely you hear from them the "happy stories", yet they happen all the time.
you cant beleive in being "unlucky" and not beleive in "luck". I can count on those unusual great hits about every time I play.  Louis Pasteur said also that " luck favors the prepared mind", so no matter what we call it, we can actually through diligent hard work get "more of it " then the regular Joe get by expecting it as we prepare for it.
good subject,
God bless,
Rinad

Never forget we. Live in imperfect world, if we had the chance to live in a perfect world , there will not such a thing as what is call luck , as all our decisions would be right!! Posibly in near future this going to happen , when humans touch the perfection , dont getting sick ,old, and die but live forever young !
