Dealing with winning streak pressure
« on: September 30, 2018, 01:49:36 AM »
 I was having a great streak of winning trips going to my local casino but then a thought popped into my head that a loss would eventually rear its ugly head in the future and how would I handle it. would I try to chase? would I be overly pissed etc.. I just started feeling a sort of pressure, anyone ever have anything like this and how did they handle it? thanks.

  hi there, I certainly can relate to your topic, which you are the first ever bring it up that I know of.
I had many, many winning trips as you describe and had that very same "ugly feeling running down my spin".

I would have to said that the endless feeling of not losing has its down side.
in my case I learned that I ended up taking a loss a little harder then I would of done if I did not be so confident and therefore I did often pushed my luck a little too much.
it could very well be related to my addictive nature, and as humans, we can feel so invincible that the loss has greater effect on our spirit.
Roger Boyer in one of his book I recall name it "the happiness syndrome", which happens to many player.
my advice is to either take a break from playing for a few weeks, or make it very clear in your head what is your daily amount of units that you are willing to lose and really stick to it, even practicing visualisation as if it happend and seing yourself doing it in your imagination.
we are all different, and what works for you may be different then me.
I always have done better playing on the defensive, and that does not mean that you should tweak your strategy, for if I know I need to make a play I will make it, but it means not to bend your "rules you made up", and so clarity is very strong in your session.
I recall in the past being "over confident" and slowly moving from my play and betting and braking my own rules, left wondering later as to "what the heck just happend to my session and how did i let myself deviate from my original plan?"
it happen to all players and that is a hard lesson to learn. that is why I mention the word "clarity/clear vision", because winning trips after trips can get things distorted at time.
glad you brought it up.
God bless,

Rinad

Hi blue
Anyone who plays roulette for a length of time experiences winning streaks -  and losing streaks.My reaction  to my first experience of a winning streak was different to yours. Mine was that it would continue and by increasing stakes gradually would win enough to give up my day job .When I did increase my stakes I lost - the very first time. Hopes dashed  !
I think that those using progressions will often have winning streaks - it is the losing streak/s that kill them.

A kind of "Hit-and-run" in German (on roulette-forum.de) right now: "Kurzangriffe beim Roulette und BlackJack". Without being too specific one member there (data) claims to have had some success with his method. For what it´s worth: Three bets. If he wins, he raises - and STOPS after the first loss.

Hey Dane, what's up?
By saying 3 bets I assume that you are speaking about EC bets, right?
By saying if wins you mean to win all 3 of them, 2 out of 3, 1 out of 3, what?

This is highly impractical in my consideration, just imagine someone to spend time/money just to get to a casino and then if he loses his first (or first 3) bet to stop and return home. ::)
Personally speaking, I could not imagine worse method than this 1!

Hello BlueAngel.
Yes, it seems to be highly impractical. The German writer IS NOT TOO SPECIFIC, so your guesses are as good as mine. There are much nonsense out there.

Dane,  it's possible to play like that. The bets placed must just be of very high value and cover enough numbers to ensure more hits than misses. Three hits and you have reached your daily target. Same amount of time it would take you to walk into a bank and draw funds from a cashier.

BUT... The loss of one bet kills your play.
Not advisable to play this way even if you have an endless bankroll.

Thanks for your replies. On the German forum there are now SIX pages with replies to "data"! Some of it is astrological nonsense, I think. But the inventor  has now revealed that he only bets a few numbers. Another member suggests to play eight sessions per visit. Then one of the most experienced people there points out that we should perceive our play as "eine lebenslange Sitzung".
We should try to think of it as one visit lasting one life!
Well, it is Time to transcend Time and place. "YOU ARE NOW LEAWING THE AMERICAN ZONE"!

Dane, Are you baiting members for an all out discussion?....lol.
You see Ken is the 4 number guy, I am the 8 sessions a day guy and there has been a discussion about roulette being one long game etc etc etc.

I like the twist of leaving the American zone and moving to the German zone. To this I will say that I am glad the German people are beginning to stand up against the plunder of Germany under Merkel.
