Know your limits because your day will come
A common phrase in the English speaking world which applies to so many people without them even realizing it is ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’ It basically refers to people who are trying to keep up with their neighbours with a fine example being a new car.
Your neighbour buys a new car so all of the other people in the street look at their own car and wish they had a newer model, some of them will go straight down to the car show room to make a purchase. This saying applies to all sorts of other things from a new hair style to the choice of vacation.
‘What an earth has that got to do with a racetrack or casino?’, you may be asking yourself, but you will be surprised by how many people are influenced by the players who are sitting next to them at the gaming tables.
Picture the scene, a novice blackjack player is happily playing blackjack to minimum stakes when a more experienced player sits down next to him and starts betting one hundred dollars per hand. Shortly afterwards, another player arrives and starts to put similar amounts of money down. All of a sudden, the minimum stakes player starts to feel a little uncomfortable and decides to raise his own stakes.
Not to the level of the high rollers who are sitting next to him, but more than he can really afford. Unfortunately, the likely outcome of betting this way is that the novice will lose. He will not hit when it is the best option because he would rather play it safe as well as making all sorts of other foolish decisions.
