All gamblers have heard the Kenny Rogers’ song The Gambler. However, for whatever their reasons, many people don’t necessarily heed the advice in the song. In the past, I’ve been more inclined to think that the words should’ve gone something like this: “know when to walk away and know when to run straight out the door and never look back.” However, thankfully, this is always a phase I go through when I’m ticked off about something and it’s a passing thought which never lingers long.
Still, have you ever thought very much about the song’s lyrics? There’s a lot there to consider if you ever wanted to analyze the entire song. Every gambler knows the secret to surviving, which is the one that really makes me stop and think. Every UK casino gambler knows a lot but trying to get a gambler to stick with what they know is like trying to wrestle with a stubborn bull. There is usually a point and time when a gambler is going tilt, whether it’s in poker or any other casino game, that they still have some awareness about them. They know their fate before they finish the game because things haven’t been running smooth for them and yet they still press up all of their bets or they go all-in. Then they are mad as hell at what they decided to do.
The best gamblers in the world aren’t necessarily the UK gambling gamblers betting the most money, it’s the gamblers who are in tune with what’s going on around them when they are betting and winning as well as when they are losing. I’ve had more gut instincts at a craps table than anywhere in my life, when I ignore them, those instincts were usually right. However, sometimes I follow my instincts and find there wasn’t anything to follow. But if you get into what a craps player friend of mine calls ‘the zone’ then you will be able to protect your bankroll by going with runs and running yourself if you need to leave a casino or a table where you cannot win.
Most of the time if you will stop and think about a free bingo gambling situation that you are facing, and weigh both sides of it , you can choose the most profitable way to go , even if it’s something as simple playing the don’t pass line. Just because the table is cold, you need to kind of watch what is going on before you just slap down a certain amount of money and fly by the seat of your pants. However, there are some tables in every casino that will occasionally get on a choppy run and no matter what you do, you simply cannot win. That is when you need to learn to fold up and go home or go sit by the pool and read for a while. After you have had a few hours to relax, then you can return to the casino and start over again.
However, if you return with the same luck you left with then it is possible that maybe you should just run straight out the door and never look back.; at least not until tomorrow. Just remember, as a savvy gambler, you must always know when to run!
