"Gambling Wizards." It is along the lines of the "Market Wizards" series and is interview format about the nature of the mentality you need to succeed.



Thanks, I have worn copies of both the Market Wizards books. I am looking forward to reading Gambling Wizards.

A loss never bothers me after I take it. I forget it overnight. But being wrong - not taking the loss - that is what does damage to the pocketbook and to the soul.



Nice choice of a quote. Truly understanding this quote changed the way I trade.

When it comes to blackjack I like the book Blackbelt In Blackjack.

I will read that. Regarding the quote on trading I have taken it to the tables and have to walk away when the cards/dice go cold or at the very least against me...live to fight another day.

Taking losses is the hardest thing for people to do and it is usually their downfall in the market specially when it comes to trading. They book small gains and let big losses grow because their ego gets in the way.

True Scotty. Like trading, gambling is one big session over a lifetime. Having the discipline to stick to an overrall winning method despite a string of losses is whats important. Like life its all about risk:reward.

The green belt section is the most important section of the book in my opinion. White belt talks about various types of counting systems and stuff you've probably already read. Black belt talks about forming teams and sharing bankrolls - stuff thats irrelevant to most people. Green belt talks about cover and bankroll management, stuff thats more relevant and useful.

You should enjoy it if you liked the others. BTW: it is out of print but plenty of used copies online.
