The human factor, the desire, the greed, the thoughts, the rush of winning money and all that!
No matter what you say, no matter what you figure on the computer, no matter how great your will power is, no matter how your math and stats add up to being rock solid, no matter anything, you will always have that influence brought on by the first sentence I wrote here.
If you don't, then you never won a sizable amount as compared to your buy in, within a live casino. It changes things, lots of things and changes them real darn quick.
Knowing, Experience, The Difficulty, Balanced versus Non-Balanced versus Opportunities. Those will also play huge roles in the outcome of your live B&M gambling sessions. Again, if you are not affected by those things or believe in them, then you never won a sizable amount as compared to your buy in, within a live casino.
The following is about H-Money (my Asian friend I used to write about until several on here blasted me about and questioned why I write about him or that he does not exist). Anyway, we were at the casino last weekend. A guy he knows very well from the Asian community was playing blackjack. A relatively new player, maybe a year or two experience. Usually buys in for $2,000.00 or so on the average. Plays at a $5.00 to $500.00 table, 2 or 3 hands.
I took a break from a baccarat shoe and went out of the baccarat room and found H-Money. He was standing behind that blackjack player friend of his and cheering him on, with 4 or 5 other people. The guy was up well over $25,000.00. Playing 2 and 3 hands at up to $500.00 each hand. Could not lose. Was standing on dealer's 7s and 8s when he had 12s to 16s. His reasoning was the dealer would have to pull if anything other than a 9, 10 or A came out. And almost every time that is what happened. A small card under the dealers up card of 7 or 8 and then pulls a 10 and busts.
Everyone kept saying $50k or $100k in their native languages. You could see the look, the smile, the glowing aroma of the guy playing. Yes, no play, no win. No pain, no gain. If you stop playing you can't win any more. I know all that.
By the end of the night, all gone. He gave it all back and then some. He was even borrowing money from everyone to continue and get all the win money that he lost, back again. It was the most he ever won and he lost it all.
It is not the way to play, it is sad, but so real. It is the reality of the casino, the games, and every player. I have protections built in against this stuff and when I win something sizable, I employ my protection and become 10 times more aware of what might or might not happen than during my previous play of winning.
