    At One Point Do You Tell Your Wife/Family How Much You Have Lost Gambling??

    I am sure it has to happen when the money has dried up and bills have to be paid so the inevitable talk has to take place.


    I have of course done it for the bailout..the PAYOUT

    Embarrassing

    If you had a system, you wouldn't have to tell them you lost, you'd be bragging how much you won.

    I have no wife and no family. Penguins is all I have: they don't care, they are happy when I'm losing

    Tell Your Wife/Family How Much You Have Lost Gambling

    that phrase has now been shortened to "having the Brock-talk" in gambling forumville

    I Win

    I tell my girlfriend when I win, but only sometimes.

    I let her know I bet on 2 or 3 games on Saturdays, but in reality I bet 8 or 10.

    But I do keep it manageable. My units are less than 0.1% of my annual income. I do it for fun, and if I can make 5-10k doing it then awesome.

    Early. My kids have been to the horse track and studying pps for years. They know chess and other strategy games you can gamble on. You never know if you are playing me or one of my kids at SBR Poker.

    I'm up, 250 invested... if I lose everything I have in there now I think I'd just say fuk it and move on cause that would make me sick. A few hundred at the casino here or there but if I couldn't afford to lose it, I wouldn't have gambled it. I tell her I drop a few hundred at craps or 3 card, she lost a hundred in the machine, we still make a lot more than we spend. I think that's key. No kids, that's also a key part of the equation.
