    If I Just Bet Games I really Liked I Would Be A Winning Gambler

    I have proven it even here tracking but cannot do it


    NEED ACTION DAILY to mask being bald and small and love the rush to lose

    If you don't track your bets to understand why you're winning or losing, you're doomed to fail.

    You know, Gold, there is another side to this coin.

    It is a market fact that often times the best bet to make is the toughest one to swallow.

    Why don’t you track a strategy where you bet the games you don’t like?

    Better yet, quantify “like” or “don’t like” so the decision is more clear cut, taking out emotion. Eventually you’re going to need to make some kind of ratings to determine what you like.

    Very few people are successful at simply subjective betting over time, the biggest reason is because it runs so hot and cold and they get emotional. Emotions don’t just short circuit rational thinking, they also have an effect on intuitive, subjective, thinking.

    Remove those emotions and you might find value in bets you never would have thought about making.

    I'm so bad about tracking my bets, but anecdotally just about every bet I "love" is a loser. The bets that I don't love but know it's the right play even though I'm hesitant to pull the trigger are usually winners.

    True jj. But you need the action. I just talked to this guy who was up 4k from basketball and football. He only bets to win. Says he hadn't cash out or bet a game since nccab final. He doesn't need to bet. He only bets to make money. Not for the thrill

    Snap.

    It feels like that here too. But I bet we just recall those misses stronger than other bets.

    OK, I've been preaching this to you for 10+ years. I'm a net plus gambler over 50 years. Bottom line is "less volume is better".

    Glad to hear Madison.

    Nice to see an old vet in the horse section every once and a while.

    Spot plays has always been my game once I got over being a teenager and thinking I could win because I was so smart.

    But hey, "I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now".

    Anyway, don't get too frustrated with JJ. This is a public service announcement thing that I assume is required to have a gambling forum.

    Good luck and see you in the winners circle !

    Thanks STR! As you are likely aware I know enough about the ponies to be dangerous. I was successful 40 years ago in the NFL and college football, but primarily Greyhounds. Time has passed me by as the NFL back in the 70's & 80's was mostly defense and 17-14 scores were common. The Greyhound industry was destroyed by PETA, Increased take outs, The 10/20 cent bets, and the Exotic wagers.

    All my best, and please guide me with my pony plays.

    FYI, I funded my TVG account 3 or 4 years ago with $600. My current balance circa $568. I asked my wife if I was nuts watching 4 or 5 hours of racing on a Saturday to be circa even after 3/4 years and her response was "It's in your blood just consider it entertainment".
