    Why doesn't anyone here take shots when gambling?

    Makes no sense to me.

    Bet $50 and a good week you win $400

    Bad week you lose $50 per game then pay $400 or chase to break even or lose a ton

    Why not step in and say ok I am taking this $200 5 different times for an all in 10 times over the course of 5 years and if it hits I go to vegas professionally with over $100k

    well said JJ.

    it's no fun being out of the game.

    Many gamblers have good self awareness.

    i quit many months and only pop up this time of year

    whether I lose 1k or win 5k makes no difference in a year now

    it is why I prefer to take shots then quit

    people that are not risk takers usually do not have the top level success in anything in life

    We are all not risk takers
