  • This thread will explore the proposition that we make our own luck.

    I consider myself lucky and I expect to win more than I lose but also factoring in the odds of the game involved, or life circumstance.

    Grateful that I have at an early age been through the school of hard knocks, I now have an attitude which attempts to be 'realistic' although it is nevertheless subjective. My attitude of gratitude is helpful and my expectation is realistic because it is often, but not always fulfilled.

    Throughout 2016 I will add to this thread as with the other threads so there is a growing body of research, belief, and facts presented.

    Why do I do this? Because this is the way I order my thoughts, and when there is sufficient order and calm, I can prepare GOALS for these are our highest dreams. If you do not dream and imagine, your life may not change in the direction you desire. It is like the ancient image of steering your Dhow on the Nile - could be an image from 5000 years ago, but it could be tomorrow. ( I think of the recent celebrity chef episode).

    To share this study and research with some insights is a real pleasure and a delight for me but it is secondary.

    Now that is an example of win-win psychology.  For the readers like.... ( well you know them)... who seem to delight in undermining or finding fault, or being suspicious of evil intent-lol... well it is sad for them but I am not bothered. On more than two levels I am successful, at least in my own evaluation or estimation ( I may well be deluded of course) and it only requires a tiny benefit, a small gain, and I am ahead and free of the static pool of inaction and excuses for failure. It may be that I have only one reader (me), but I think not - actually I believe a lot of readers are genuinely curious and want to find out more about how to......change for the better/ improve/ learn/ grow/ explore and have fun on a safe pathway.

    In the forthcoming work over the next month I will establish a Reverse Bet/ Loss Bet thread. I have sent out attachments for those interested already. please note a thread established by  Roulette Ghost - EASY MATRIX   covers similarly the D+C theory which was originated by ScoobyDoo and Johnlegend on an earlier Forum. I adapted that and turned it inside out. It is great RG has chosen to re-invent this, and I always felt the idea was an interesting one. It had a reason why in theory it would work ( but that was flawed). The problem I had with it was that the progression ( as happens) can go haywire and it was ruinous and a losing bet in my opinion. You need big samples. At least 100 games even for a preliminary assessment. The theory was that the player was defying randomness and the probable likelihood that a repeat pattern might appear within say three attempts. We will look further into this later. But there you are skating on the edge of the melting ice. Are you lucky and get away with it and live to tell the tale? Or do you eventually succumb and throw away the grafted 'profit'. Unlucky.
    What I found was that the bet sometimes worked but more often than not, failed. So what do you do with a consistently failing bet?

    More accurately I found three modes A,B and C being the zero.

    So my work on the Loss Bet will eventually deal with this. In the meantime I love that Leonardo diCaprio image.

    Luck - Intuition -  Foresight

    Will reference Sunil Padiyar on this, and elaborate in days and weeks to come. This is the M/O on all my threads - all will be extended from time to time.

  • This thread will be re-activated as I am currently re-viewing my daily roulette play and have come to key realisations- these will be set out over the coming weekend. Luck plays a big part in it, ie being in the right place at the right time - prepared in every sense. Also knowing what to do ..next.

  • 1.   Believing that you will get the things you want in life and deserve the things you want in life will make you more prone to receiving them.

    2.   People who are lucky take more risks. This doesn’t mean they gamble their house and take risks on new businesses and forgetting their family. Taking a risk can be calculated, you weigh up your options know what you can afford to lose and go for it.


    3.   Listening to your instinct can be invaluable when it comes to choosing what you want in life. How many times have you had the instinct to go for something but your brain held you back and told you all the reasons not to do it, then later on you find out it would have worked out well after all. We all have instincts for a reason and some people take more heed when it comes to listening to their instincts, you can hone this ability simply by listening with your body, be aware of your bodily sensations when you are thinking about trying something new. The more you trust your instinct the more it will serve you better.

    4.   If you do not have your lucky number I suggest 33 - see attachment   ^-^

  • Yes I like this. Those lucky ones in Dublin. I wonder how many took advantage of this short cycle WF. When such events occur it is worth loading the target to the table limit - one of the WF outcomes - a hit on the first opportunity and a repeat win and a repeat win!

    I was once playing at Sydney Pyrmont casino and the (young) croupier paid out my stack on 33 and advised me it was the biggest unit payout he had ever made (in his young career). Bless him.

    Yes 33 is one of my favoured numbers ( they are all good) but I like the double resonance of 3 which is my core number for my sun sign in astrology but of course that will be nonsense to some mathematicians. However remember the Chaldeans 5000 years ago.

    Also 33 is the number on the yellow and green shirt of a favoured Australian cricketer.

  • My reference to astrology is deliberate in the context of discussion of luck because timing is a superb criterion to be observed.

    I consider myself to be 'lucky', although I would more refer to this as 'fortunate'. Yes, being brave in terms of risk taking does favour one, and I recall the GM of the Casino discussing with me after one quiet Monday morning when I transferred a portion of that morning's roulette winnings to a favourite slot machine where I had obtained several smaller dividends, and on this particular morning won a substantial jackpot.

    He rationalised that I was in the right time and at the right place, emphasising that I played no system for the machines although he was aware I played a system in roulette, however abstruse. I agreed with him of course and quickly took the cash option for payment - very satisfying. However there was more to it, and I engage this principle today.

    You need to be bold and believe you can and will win. Belief is essential. What comes first the belief or the winning? Somehow they developed together with me but I emphasise even on the slots at the casino I am well ahead in earnings over expenditure, and took a tidy jackpot on a similar basis a few weeks ago. I sort of personalise it and have a feel with some machines. It is very much as Sunil Padyar states in his book.
    The machines move through cycles/ modes and I can sense these for any one of half a dozen games with which I am familiar. It is a subtle and dangerous art chasing the jackpots but I keep an eye on the figures and even today I will have a suitable attempt using roulette profit.

    Actually it is fun, not an obsession, and more importantly it works.

    The machines can be cold, neutral + or -, and hot.

    Likewise the Ecart on a wheel in roulette within the terms of the 'window' through which I am watching can be seen in those terms also. In my private bet on Thursday's live game review I noted some sets hot, and in one case earning over +120 units in 25 spins flat staking, while on another quite challenging, effectively break even thanks to my recovery phase strategy which hauls back earlier loss. This is done by the phenomenon I have witnessed regularly that 3 quick succession wins will follow the eventual appearance of an overdue ( and earlier loss) target. Since I effectively play 9 numbers inside table flat staking that is a -54 loss, yet my 'recoveries can often achieve as earlier this week partial or full success 9 times out of 10, being +36 to +72, out of a theoretical maximum of +81 units.

    Luck is helpful in my play as the timing of my choices proves successful. Of course there is plenty of analysis and intellectual work underway, but there is also the emotion of confidence of success or fear of loss present, and transcending that the feeling for the day which relates to purpose, greater aims, vision and good choice as opposed to poor choice. Some days I can play at 90-100% capacity of my review of behaviour. Other days my rating can be poor. I observe myself at all times and try to understand how to consistently improve my results.

    In time this does work, but there are slippages sometimes and good humour should be present but sometimes I can still be angry with myself or the dealer. That is very harsh and naive but without doubt dealers can and do make a difference. I generally do much better with experienced and confident dealers rather than trainees.

    So also some days, some cycles are more favourable than others, as in nature there are 'resonances'. As with the numbers, there are resonances in our fluidic natures with the moon for example. There are phases that are adverse or more challenging, and there are favourable cycles. I do not pre-programme myself on this, but I try to be sensitive and responsive where possible. Even just this control varies in our daily and weekly and monthly patterns.

    Lastly I have emphasised this thought in reaction to one of the endless Stephen Fry comic episodes on Qi which can be very entertaining. In this episode on detectives SF launches into a tirade against the last 20-30 years of the life of Conan Doyle ( author of Sherlock Holmes). I have read the same tirades also in the appalling endless re-hashes in SF 'autobiography' - evidently with several more to come. The purpose of the last version seems to have attempted to pay for the latter's expensive drug habits, but also has some  passages that the Publisher should have edited out which feature really bad offensive images. SF seems to be a 'materialist' and really has harsh cynical views of any other positions or beliefs, particularly the interests of Conan Doyle. It demonstrates to me that 'intelligent' people can be really lacking intelligence in aspects of their personalities - what we term black holes. Just an observation - not a judgement.

    So in summary, just be alive, feel more alive, and be super alert. There is no limit to this you know and it is part of the discipline of self-realisation and awareness where east meets west in sharing wisdom. There is more to life than just appearances.

    Preparation is the stuff of lifelong efforts and opportunity is the stuff of fleeting moments.

    In other words when long term meets short term...

    "wisdom is to see eternity within a day..."
    ''For after all what is man in nature?
    A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.
    The ends of things and their beginnings are impregnably concealed from him in an impenetrable secret.
    He is equally incapable of seeing the nothingness out of which he was drawn and the infinite in which he is engulfed.'' B.Pascal

  • Here are a few things that people say about luck.
    1.   “Luck favours the bold”.  Be careful with this one in a gambling situation! Don’t be bold, be conservative!
    2.   “The harder I work the luckier I get”.  Hard work by itself is insufficient. The harder I work at digging my hole simply means that I get in a deeper hole more quickly. Don’t work hard – work smart!
    3.   “There are rules to luck, not everything is chance for the wise; luck can be helped by skill”. NOW you’re talking!
