When Opportunity Knocks.
« on: December 10, 2018, 06:16:30 AM »
There is opportunity on every corner, on every street and in every casino (the non cheating ones). There is great opportunity on this forum.
How is the right opportunity identified?
People like to present themselves as clever and streetwise but the majority are followers and not leaders.
Is my idea better than yours?
Because I perceive you to be confident does that may you right?
Why do some win with a roulette method while other fail with the same method?

Opportunity knocks in many threads on this forum but players don't see the gold lining.

We have the opportunity to pick the brains of the more successful players. The way we approach them will determine their willingness to help us see the opportunity that awaits us through their knowledge and insight into the game.

Here is one such situation: ken plays a few numbers only and he is doing well. How many players have looked at this as a possible opportunity to learn and create a few numbers method of their own? How many players have approached Ken with their ideas and asked him to evaluate the method pointing out errors and so on?

There is opportunity and the right approach with the right questions will unlock these opportunities for you.

We have a golden opportunity to witness first hand a duel between MrPerfect (AP) and Scepticus (9 block thingy) but the instigator has chickened out. He claims it's foolish and reckless gambling to indulge in such challenges.

What would the benefit of this duel be for the forum?

Wikipedia Article on Luck, under the science subsection. 

Different thinkers like Thomas Kuhn have discussed the role of chance in scientific discoveries. Richard Wiseman did a ten-year scientific study into the nature of luck that has revealed that, to a large extent, people make their own good and bad fortune. His research revealed that "Lucky people generate their own good fortune via four basic principles. They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, making lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, creating self-fulfilling prophecies via positive expectations, and adopting a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good."[14] Researchers have suggested that good luck and good mood often co-occur (Duong & Ohtsuka, 2000)[15] and that lucky people are happy and optimistic whereas unlucky people feel anxious and depressed (Day & Maltby, 2003; Wiseman, 2003).

Although previous studies have explored the antecedences and consequences of luck using attribution theory (e. g., Fischoff, 1976; Weiner et al., 1987),[17][18] personality variables (Darke & Freedman, 1997a;b),[19] and more recently a cognitive priming approach (DeMarree et al., 2005; Kramer & Block, 2008) research on the underlying mechanism of how luck influences consumer judgment and behavior has been noticeably absent in the extant literature. Moreover, in much of this previous work, luck is manipulated in a way that is very likely to elicit positive affect as well. Thus, it is difficult to articulate whether the observed effects of luck are due to chronic beliefs about luck, temporary changes in how lucky people feel, or because of changes caused by the positive affect that is experienced. Their research showed that priming participants subliminally with luck-related stimuli made them feel luckier and happier. It was also found that the effects of priming luck using subliminal messages increased participants' estimates of the likelihood of favorable events, their participation in lotteries, the amount of money they invested in relatively risky financial options and these effects appeared to be mediated by temporary changes in perceptions of luck rather than by affect).

I should put this in the Golden Rules thread but I do all my active "intuition-ing" at the planning table.  Once I hit the casino, my intuition is relegated to an observation role.  I think consistency is important regarding statistics.

I like it.  It supports my belief on indifference.
