Poker, Gaming and The Thrill of Victory: Risk and Reward
Poker, Gaming and The Thrill of Victory: Risk and Reward by Rory for The Daily Coin
I love to gamble. When launching The Daily Coin it was a massive gamble on my part. When leaving the “comfort” of a supposed “secure” J.O.B. and doing this full time, the stakes were raised even higher. Beginning in the fall of 2016, google, Fakebook, YouTube and Twitter decided they didn’t like “alternative voices” and it has become an even bigger risk. The stakes are very high but the rewards are boundless.
We love going to casino’s, playing slots, Blackjack, Texas No-Hold ‘Em and a variety of other games as well. We never take what we can’t afford to lose and we never play as if we are scared to lose it. Scared money always, always, always loses. Fear is not a good strategy in life and it is not a good strategy in a casino.
Psychology Today, citing the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, claims that “many, if not all” decisions made on Wall Street are influenced by the trader’s mood and emotional state. Again, it’s easy to draw a parallel here with poker, with “tilt”, a term that describes a mindset that’s not conducive to strategic play (anger, frustration, sadness, etc.), tending to make players either more or less risk-averse than they normally would be.

We love to play Blackjack where the people are having a good time – something to look for – and those tables rake in the dough like there is no tomorrow. When we are having a good time, we are winning, when on “tilt” we are losing – every. single. time.
