THE NINE MISTAKES GAMBLERS MAKE


Dictionaries define the word ‘mistake’ as an incorrect decision caused by bad judgment, or lack of information, or lack of care or attention. ‘Mistake’ also means having chosen the wrong alternative over the right one, the alternative that is followed by an unpleasant consequence.


We all make mistakes in our life. We make them anytime and anywhere, at home, in business, or at work. When we make a mistake at home or at work, we know it is a mistake because of the unpleasant consequence that follows. Any sane person will immediately correct the mistake and avoid repeating it - we normally learn from our mistakes.


When it comes to gambling, things are different. It’s as if gamblers believe that the mistakes they make inside the casinos are different from the mistakes they make outside. I think gamblers treat both mistakes differently although they are the same. Both have unpleasant consequences.
