LOSING-Session Can (and Should) be More Instructive Than WINNING Ones

Mad Professor's Not-So-Random Thought for Wednesday, 13 August, 2008
(reprinted from our members' message-board)

.

The mature dice-influencer has to take as much
responsibility as possible for his losses, just as he wants to take as much credit as possible for his wins.

Profitably utilizing your dice-influencing skills means that you have to not only be fully aware of your
strengths and cognizant of your opportunities, but you also have to be fully conscious of your weaknesses and attentive to any threats to your goals.

Winning-sessions are great. They buoy our confidence and fill our gaming coffers.

One of the ways that I make a winning-session as
instructively-embedded as possible, is to have an in-room or in-home practice-session AFTER I have a big win or a particularly accurate shooting session. That way, I can lock-in more of the things that made that just-finished session a success, and further lock-out and distance myself from the stuff that doesn’t.

Losing-session
aren’t so great, because they tend to erode our confidence and chip away at our gaming coffers.

However, one of the ways that I make a losing-session as
intelligently instructive as possible, is to also do an in-room or in-home practice-session AFTER I have a big loss or a particular lousy shooting or betting session. That way, I can immediately de-bug more of the things that made that just-finished session a failure, and further lock-in the few things that I did do right.

I think it’s important that you do a short
shooting-appraisal and betting-assessment de-brief after EVERY session.


ASK YOURSELF:

~What did I do right?

~What did I do wrong?

~What should I ensure that I
DO exactly the same way at my next session?

~What do I have to
AVOID doing the same way at my next session?

~What was the single-most important key to the bets that I did win? How can I lock that attribute
in?

~What is the single-most important key to the bets that I lost? How can I lock that attribute
out?


~What was the one factor that I put
too much faith and too much betting-weight on?

~What is the one factor that I should have put
more faith and more betting-weight on?


If you constantly ask yourself: what went right…what went wrong…what shouldn't be changed…what must be changed…and where will my money do the most good; each subsequent session builds on the strengths of the winning ones…and avoids needlessly repeating the mistakes of losing ones.


When the advantage-play dice-influencer figures out where most of his profit can come from, and where most of his bankroll draw-downs usually go to; it becomes much easier to stem the steady tide of losses…while making it much easier to open the floodgates of profit.





Good Luck and Good Skill at the Tables…and in Life.
