    comedy, like art is subjectively interpreted, as well as the statement "if you do what you love youll never work a day in your life", and when a serial killer is doing the thing that they love are they working?

    Winning at a game where you're supposed to lose does that for some.



    Name a casino game where you're not supposed to lose. Casinos only offer games they know they're going to win at. When my wife wins $400 in the slots after a session she feels like she beat the casino. She feels like a winner. She totally does not want to discuss the fact that she's down $2,200 for the year. All she did was managed to win $400 of her money back. Big deal. I have learned over the years just to let her feel good and not bring this up because it is the kiss of death.

    I don't gamble for money because I frankly don't need it.

    No, I gamble for entertainment, and more particularly for the stimulation I get.

    Every time I make a bet and put money at risk I have simultaneous mini-jolts of greed and fear.

    The juxtaposition of the two fascinates me: hello, strange bedfellows.

    It comes down to risk taking, and the satisfaction one derives from that.

    As much of an entrepreneur, for example, Bill Gates is - he is not interested in gambling. I watched him play once - red five dollar chips only, and I understand he gave up even that. On other hand, Larry Flynt was a huge gambler, which also makes sense, in that he couldn't derive pleasure from women, being a paralyzed invalid, and he had more than enough money to derive excitement from gaming.

    Professional athletes too, tend to be big risk takers, and big gamblers.

    Billionaires - I'd day that the gambling streak is probably more prevalent in non-American billionaires, possibly because American billionaires are CEOs of public companies and have an image to uphold.

    But in general, anyone who isn't risk averse likes to gamble.

    And even those who think that they might be risk averse, might actually have quite the gambler in them. In Theroux's documentary, Dr. Martha, the day in day out slots fiend, points out to staid Louis Theroux that he might be a "gambler" because he doesn't stop right away when he gets ahead on a slots spin. A rather dramatic and perhaps unwarranted conclusion, but Theroux does seem to exhibit the gambling bug on his last night of the documentary, when he wagers some pretty big money, and wins a few grand at Baccarat. He even downs a "sharpener" (Vodka screwdriver) before hitting the casino, playing the role of the gambler to the hilt, and wagers his own money at the tables.

    Gambling comes down to getting something for nothing. True, there is not much worse than dumping a huge sum of money and getting comp'ed against it, makes one feel silly about the meager ratio of loss to free complimentaries, but there is also not much better than winning big and getting comp'ed to the hilt, makes one feel like King of the Hill.

    Unless you've been there, it's hard to put a price on an extravagant comp'ed meal for you and all your friends or family the night of a huge casino victory. It's also hard to put a price on a narrow table game winning hand at table limit or beyond.
    I'd actually venture to guess that there are some people on this forum who have experienced exactly what I am describing, or close.

    Gamble to win money, simple and quite effective the way I do it and how I invented my own system from MDawg's successes he gracefully wrote about, ect and so on and so forth!!

    Proof is in the pudding and there is a whole lot of 'pudding cash' in my pockets and accounts because of MDawg.

  • You've hit the nail straight on.
    People are trying to derive satisfaction and validation through "beating the odds".
    May the cards fall in your favor.

    You either get something for nothing or give something for nothing. Either way, something for nothing is always involved.
