Life and Love Advice From a Gambler – (Set to Music Ahem!)
I play a few casino games online. And some of my best friend memories involve card or pool games.
But you may be happy to know (or not) that I play for free. Mostly. So now and then i listen harder when words to the wise from gamblers come around. And there are a few classic songs that really give good senseable advice, for those willing to listen. Beyond the card game…or dice?
Every gambler knows
That the secret to survivin’
Is knowin’ what to throw away
And knowin’ what to keep
Cause every hand’s a winner
And every hand’s a loser
And the best that you can hope for is to die
in your sleep Kenny Rogers
….. tip 1
be a good picker, in people and opportunities.
Go down gamblin’
Say it when you’re running low
Go down gamblin’
You may never have to go, no Blood, Sweat and Tears
…… Tip 2
try and keep trying
the only loser is the one who doesn’t try (Didn’t Yoda say something about that?)
When you’re hot, you’re hot
And when you’re not, you’re not
Put all the money in and let’s roll ’em again
When you’re hot, you’re hot Jerry Reed
It’s the game, the playing that counts. Not the score or the ups and downs.
Don’t sweat the turn of the card or dice. It’ll come round again.
And then there is my tip, no song I found says it. But it works just as well and is important too. No scheme or lucky system you have for winning works every time.
So all that you can really do at the end is beg, pray and grin when you win or lose.
And sing along to the wish
Stick with me, baby, I’m the fellow you came in with
Luck be a lady tonight! Frank Loesser
Chillax! It’s a game. Never bet more than you’re able/willing to lose! And have fun!
