Gambling: Don’t Push Too Hard

Gambling: Don’t Push Too Hard  Gambling is hard work, stressful and psychological tough.

Although, to some extent that is our own making. It’s reason why you need to gamble in a considered manner to make the whole process manageable. One legendary gambler Archie Karas was said to have made $40 million from an original be of $50. It sounds incredible but that’s the story. In an interview on YouTube channel Soft White Underbelly by Mark Laita, Karas said it was like a war zone and he went full throttle to win money by playing pool, poker & blackjack from casinos in Las Vegas.

He said: ‘It was a stressful life and I wouldn’t advise it to anyone.’

Time would see that Karas losEall his money and left with an aneurysm on his brain and lungs damaged by passive smoking which happened back in the day.

It seems that many successful gamblers lose it all.

Gambling is by definition a stressful endeavour. However, your winning method needs to be incorporated an approach that’s more relaxed and beneficial to your mental health. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Don’t bet more than you can afford to lose

  • Make sure you enjoy what you are doing and how you work

  • Don’t try to push too hard wanting to make big money fast

  • With skill-base gambling build on the positives

  • Never try to defy the stats it is a recipe for disaster

  • Don’t make your life all about the gambling

  • Exercise and go for a walk

  • Listen to what your body and mind is telling you



The reason, you need to find that sweet spot working efficiently but relaxed. If you want to survive you need to get it right. If you get stressed you are unlikely to think at your best and that brings added problems.

You may say: ‘Well how do you bet in a relaxed manner?’

Betting less money may sound like a problem but it is the answer. True, you need to make enough money to cover the cost of living but you need to progress without pressure.

Gambling will always be a gamble but you need to take the stress and volatility out of the equation.

If you can’t do that, you will either lose all the way or win big and lose even bigger.

How much money is your health worth?

Karas said: ‘How much would people pay to live a day longer.’


The best gamblers in the world are really investors with cutting-edge knowledge and within that approach they incorporate money as well as stress management.
