Value of the money.
« on: May 04, 2019, 07:37:52 AM »
 That's a bit underestimated in importance thing...
   No one will throw 100 usd or gbp to the thin air time after time and call it " variance" or "entertainment ', yet it's precisely what many roulette gamblers (players as well) do at roulette tables.
    Every time you step out of your playing model ( system) and make a bet thinking " how bad it can be anyway" , you do precisely that - throwing money to the air.
   Colored chips in roulette have been invented for the purpose of making players feel that they play for plastic , not the real money. ..  "Play with the money you can afford to lose " ..."gamble responsible "... how many times you hear or reed something like this? Many l gess. ... It's all misdirection. 
   Do not gamble! Take your premiditated chances in calculated and controlled way. Fight for every unit ( dollar) as a last one. Casinos do sweat every dollar,  as the last one. Why shouldn't you? More money then them by any chance?

You've raised an important subject MrPerfect and as you say it is why so many fail.

Recently there was a request for advice on how to win.... How do you give advice on how to condition yourself to be a disciplined player?
Problem is, there is nobody standing over you with a whip and beating you into the right direction. Gamblers/players let small things slide promising that they will make up for it. We can be our own worst critic, so people say. Are we really that tough on ourselves. When we lose our bankroll we make plans to replace it without taking responsibility for the loss. We don't hold ourselves accountable for our own poor judgments and that is why roulette has built in excuses like "black swan and variance". Do we not test extensively enough to be able to identify a bad run? How good is our training if we still get caught by variance and the dreaded The zero saga always makes me laugh. The big question is: How ready are we to actually go out and bet with REAL money?

 Many times its not a method or system but player who is responsible for fall.
   In AP 99% of time happen following :
Player get the method, do not master it totally and go to play for money too early. Result normally worst then random....
   Later on same folks go to forums to say that modern wheels, current conditions or methods..  anything other then themselves is responsible for results they got. They couldn't be bothered to make proper homework, read books they got with pen and notebook ( like at the school), test and retest the method... they just wanted action. Many of these methods advice to keep your bets on paper before you master the method..  but who pay attention to such thing, right?
   If you ask same "players" later key things required to understand , they normally have no idea.

Good example of such a thing is rrsystem ...  for me it works exactly as it is described,  for some it doesn't. .. why,  l wander. .  There should be a reason, right?

I agree 100 % Mr Perfect some methods are not tested thoroughly enough be it on paper or simulation with real casino spins as that is where most will play out their actual method. Is there ever such a thing as too much testing though ; where does one draw the line?

It each one decides for himself.
   My line is total understanding.  When l achieve it, l stop testing.
   Normally this understanding include answers for obvious questions : where to bet? Why? When? How to bet? What to expect? How "good" looks like? How "trouble" looks like? ...ets.
   If simplified,  l model play situations and my behaviour during play.
