Do you accept defeat or victory when they happen?

Recommended Posts

Today I was analyzing my situation as a player and I began to wonder a few things in my own mind: Am I really accepting the win when this is already a good win and I say is enough? Will I accept defeat and be content to lose that amount that was available to play? That is, do I accept defeat or victory when they happen?

If we ask any gambling professional how he survives in casinos, no matter how good you are, they will tell you that it is inevitable that you have a lot of bad results, or even a bad month or year. I've heard of players who started their career as a gambler very well, and after a period are already facing 2, 3 or even more than 4 bad years! I have never been through this big bad weather.

I think it is impossible to prevent the fall in the bank balance of the game when bad phase or losses are coming with a red army of bad results.

I also confess that after a big defeat, it makes us lose a little confidence in making big bets and even worsening the situation even further. Either you play and risk recovering or stop and wait for your mind to return to a slightly better or more stable situation.

From all of this what we are pretty sure about is that in the gambler business things can go from good to bad in an instant so ideally try to always keep a little money to try to recover or keep going so as not to run out of nothing. 

Do you accept victory or defeat? Do you accept defeat or victory when they happen? Do you really accepting the win when this is already a good win and you say is enough? Will you accept defeat and be content to lose that amount that was available to play?

If we want to have a chance to be at all profitable in gambling, then we have to be able to accept both wins and losses.  That is just the name of the game with gambling, win some lose some.  I think a lot of us tend to remember the defeats more though, because some of us tend to dwell on those rather than see the victories they've had.

I think all gamblers will feel happy when they win and will never feel enough and want to always get more and more. and vice versa there is no gambler who accepts his defeat, they will be angry, like me, I am angry with myself for my greed, but it is only for a few moments, after I can calm myself down, then I go back to playing again

Yeah, I do, but it is not easy to accept defeat. One must learn how to manage their emotions and not chase losses, since they mostly just lead to more losses. Accepting victory is much easier.

Very true, as I used to be one of the ones that always chased my losses, which just almost always ended in more and bigger losses.  I have learned to accept losing as a part of the game and am more focused now on discipline and having goals which I am now able to stick to about 98% of the time.  It has made a huge difference in the way I play these days.

Better as a normal person - to perceive everything sensitively. I try to be distracted, I listen to music mainly. If I accumulate hard, I try to go out into the countryside. It is best for me to calm down alone. When wildly angry and find no place for myself, I try to hide from everyone, sometimes even hiding in a bottle of beer.
But the main thing is not to bathe and that’s all, everything will be as it will, but it’s also impossible to let everything go by itself)

I have no choice but to accept my defeats and victories. I try to forget the defeat and do not try to recoup, because this leads to even greater losses. Players have no other choice but to accept all their losses.

I think of defeat, and I will confess something to you, I never forget it, I write down what I have lost, and I am gradually trying to recover it, and usually I recover it, but from one thing I learned, if I lost it, I accept it. defeat, I close the game, and try another day, unless I feel really confident trying to recover, but otherwise I really stop the game and take a break.

I think that is the approach that we need to take in order to be able to recover from time to time.  If we do not accept the losses and try to get them back right away or too quickly, it generally will only lead to more losses.

Exactly, but in practice this is not the case with most. And with you, do you really accept defeat?

Yes it is much easier to accept the victory and forget a defeat. I never forget a defeat, I only forget her if I recover what I lost days later if she is big.

Now if a defeat is small, I have learned to quit the game, be quiet, I just write down how much I lost in the coin I was tossing, and leave it quiet, pretend to be dead and when least expected I attack and recover. This has worked for me most of the time and has given me better results than acting instantly. I only attack on the spot if I know the loss is small, otherwise I'll wait for the moment to act more calmly as I told you.

Well I don't know how much time you have from gambler to dice, but I confess to you that after I learned to accept defeat momentarily, I'll be back later, just take a break. Better to cool your head, think calmly, make a plan of action to recover, now playing hot-headed trying to recover is fatal.

Well it was very hard for me to accept losses , it's never easy to accept that but by the time i get used to. After a big bust i just need like few hours to recover mentally lol

It is also hard for me to accept losing from small, medium or large losses! I hate losing any kind of loss.

But I'll tell you something, set a daily, weekly, and monthly goal, and start doing it, don't exceed your goals, take what you can, set a daily play amount, and if you lose the loss will be small. The more you bet, the greater the risk of the loss being large.

Remember small wins together form a big win after days. And after that you have the power to have something bigger if you are confident. But it's always good to win, whether little, medium or large. All I got here was starting from little to a good amount. If I lose from now on it will be only small losses. If I win it can be from small wins to big wins, but you'll never hear me saying I lost a lot. Maybe that will help you think about conquering parts.

Before gambling, I had the idea that I would win and take a lot of money. But I left with empty hands. I think we should accept this fact.
 

Yes, accepting a defeat is very hard and difficult, especially if the defeat is large. But small defeats are easier to accept. The important thing is to maintain self-control when defeat happens so that we don't get into compulsive bets and make the result even worse.

Ofc nobody likes accepting a loose, but thats what you gonna handle with.

If you do not accept a loose, then better dont play.

if you can accept only wins, then you should win. ;)

Exactly, knowing how to deal with losses and understanding what made us lose gives us more insight to try not to make the same mistakes as before.

I have hardly accepted defeats, this is very bitter to swallow, but to do what, no one can ever win! But that taught me how to set game standards, if I'm going to play today with 50k satoshi, then I'm at risk of losing only 50k for tomorrow to have a chance to recover just 50k. Setting daily game goals helps us avoid terrible losses.

Our human nature often prevents us from accepting losses. Chasing smaller losses we end up losing big.

There's a wonderful advise from the trading area which says "Cut your losses short, let your profits run". Frankly speaking I'm trying to deal with this issue but I haven't implemented it fully in my gaming yet. But I'm on the way.

I have learned this from accepting defeat and knowing that time can be my ally if I have patience, discipline, and a good strategy and luck to win and maybe recover. The important thing is to stay calm so things don't get worse and worse. I think if I had learned this before I would have won more than lost more in casinos. Today I am better, because I am avoiding trying to recover losses and created my scheme to minimize losses. Thank you for your feedback.

Winning and losing are an indispensable thing in life. I and many others will always accept winning or losing. If you lose your bet, you should not be angry and bored. Instead you should learn to accept it
