Can you walk away?
We have spoken before about the growing number of people who are now able to class themselves as a pro gambler due to the fact that they are able to earn an income from their gambling activities. So many people would like to go down this path and make a great living in this way and if you are one of these people there is a simple question which, if answered correctly, will give you an idea if you are the kind of person who has what it takes.
So, without further ado, consider this. After studying the form you have come to the conclusion that you have found the likely winner of the second race on the card at Delaware Park. You arrive at the track in plenty of time, enjoy a bite to eat and then place your bet.
It is a close race but your selection loses by a couple of lengths. You are obviously disappointed but now for the question. Do you call it a day as far as your betting goes, perhaps watch the rest of the card but you do not place a bet. Or, do you hurriedly look through the form of the next races, determined to win your money back?
If you decided to call it a day, you may just have what it takes to go pro, if you decided to carry on though, it would be a good idea to take a step back and realize that if you are the type of person who chases losses it could be the quick road to the poor house.
From sports betting to poker, Delaware Park Betting features endless casino, golf, horse racing and sports gambling options.
It is all about mastering your emotions, don’t think for one minute that a pro is not extremely disappointed when their selection loses because they most definitely are, it is just that they know only too well that if they decide to go ‘on tilt’ it could very well end up in disaster.
A pro might only have one bet in a week, or even a month but it is by selectively betting in this way which results in them still making money in this way whilst those who do not have the same degree of discipline fall by the wayside!
If you can learn how to not chase your losses you might just have what it takes to become a professional gambler.
