Do Not Gamble When Depressed or Tired
Gambling should be a way to relax but doing it when extremely tired is a recipe for disaster. You need concentration to win, and of course, your mind will not be functioning properly if you’re depressed or very tired. Go home and get rest if this is the case.
Gamble with Only What You Are Comfortable to Lose
Even the most experienced gamblers lose. Financial discipline is key when going into gambling. Set aside an amount that you can afford and comfortable with losing. Many people who have gone into gambling blindly end up losing all their finances.
Do Not Drink Alcohol Before Your Session Begins
First of all, a drunk mind cannot be trusted to gamble the right way. Secondly, you might end up pissing off your opponents and other people on your table. If you must grab a bottle, please do so after you are done with your session, and as you head home.
Keep Your Playing Sessions Short
The longer you play, the more the chances of losing. Keep your betting sessions short and more so if you are a newbie. Prolonging the sessions means adding more money to the table and this might lead to losing everything.
Follow Your Instincts
If you start feeling uncomfortable about the table, opponents or the table you are playing in, stop and leave the table. Well, the table isn’t going anywhere, get your moods right and get back to betting.
Follow a Plan
You must always have a betting plan if you want to win. Set your betting strategies, maximum and minimum wagers before you start playing. And please make sure to stick by the plan.
Never Increase Your Bet When Losing
Many people make this mistake, and it ends up costing them a lot of money. The only time you are supposed to increase your bets is when you are winning. And even then, you should be very careful.
The Battle Is Between You and Yourself
Do not confuse or lie to yourself that you are competing with the casino, no, the battle is between you and you alone. The casino will gain while you lose. It is therefore important to do all you can to avoid losing to the casino.
Quit When Winning
The best time to quit is when you are winning. You never know what the next round will unfold. Go home after winning one or two games.
