Winning at Gambling is Not for Everyone

Most gamblers claim that winning at gambling is the most important thing to them. There are others that say they really don’t care whether they win or lose, they just want to have a good time which I’ve talked about in this previous post. For those gamblers who are obsessed with winning and have that competitive drive that makes winning the only acceptable outcome, gambling can be a double-edged sword.

Winning at Gambling

Many of the biggest gamblers are professional athletes. Their competitive nature makes gambling the perfect outlet. The problem is many of these athletes have lost perspective through the years. In order for them to achieve the level of success they have, their mind tells them they are the best. Their self-confidence is through the roof because if it isn’t it results in failure in their profession.

You take these over-confident athletes with a competitive fire that burns deep inside and challenge them to a game, any game, and put money on it, they cannot resist the temptation. The problem is their competitive fire over takes their common sense. They believe they are the best, they can’t lose, and they take on challenges no matter the game or sport. They take that same mentality into the casino and they refuse to be defeated. They are the best, they can’t lose. Time and time again you hear about pro athletes losing millions of dollars gambling. I have yet to hear of a pro gambler who is ahead millions of dollars.

The problem is they allow their competitive nature to be used in the wrong way. One of the most important features of a professional gambler is the irresistible urge to win. The difference is the pro gambler perfects his craft to insure success much like the pro athlete does in their sport of choice. If the pro athlete would use their competitive nature as they do in their sport and practice and learn everything they can about the casino games where winning is possible, the results would be much different.

If you are not the competitive type and winning at gambling is not a priority, you need to continue to gamble on a recreational level and losses will probably ensue. If you are the competitive type that has allowed previous success to distort your self-image and you believe you are invincible and cannot lose, stay away from the casino. However, if you have a raging fire burning inside of you to defeat the casino or anyone else who stands in your way of gambling success, and you use it to perfect your craft in every way possible, you will indeed find success in gambling.

About Greg Elder

I was 37 years old, a husband and father, a former teacher, college and high school basketball coach, and a business owner, I decided to give it all up (Not the husband and father part) to take a shot at pro gambling. I was coming off a job I hated selling insurance, and I vowed to do something I was passionate about. For the next year I would spend 12-15 hours a day researching, studying, and practicing advantage gambling techniques. The goal was to see if I could sustain our current lifestyle as a professional gambler. I wanted to find out if casinos really could be beat. At the time, I thought it may be the biggest mistake of my life, but my intentions were to have fun trying. It has been an interesting few years since that journey began. My feature book GAMBLERS FIGHT BACK has been released and can be purchased on my author site at I would consider my pro gambling career to be a success on all fronts. I didn't win millions of dollars, but I was able to enjoy every minute of it. It brought an excitement and passion back into my professional life. It has helped lead me to a writing career that I had no idea I even wanted before this challenge. I was able to write a book that shared with others exactly what I learned along the way.. Gambling professionally is not easy, but there are certain things the average gambler can do to increase their chances of success tremendously. That's the information I try to pass along to my readers.
