I think I fall into the "extremely lucky" category. Granted some of my luck is due to just being observant and exploiting opportunities.
But I too have streaks in the Casino that can only be explained in the realm of mysticism. I play Texas holdem and I play with many, many players
that have read all the books, have memorized the law of average tables and play a perfect game in all respects; at best I am just an average player
but I pay attention to hunches and clean the "players" clocks on a regular basis. Some guys/gals refuse to sit at the table where I'm sitting.
One other thing; I can feel in a very tangible manner when the streak is over and stop playing. I also never chase the streak by playin Blackjack,
slots, Sports book, etc. When it's over go to the bar have a drink and chill. My GF always finds a parking place close to the front door of the
Market but always gets in the slowest checkout line......go figure???
I think I should also add that I can spot a "loser" before he/she even sits at the poker table, seen him/her play, or heard them speak. They have
an aura of "loser" ...... Poker is alot like life.
A few other lucky people and I have discussed our "gift" and we have come to the conclusion that a mindset of peace, love, humility and thankfulness
actually attracts the luck factor. Try it, I think you'll like it!!
I am constantly astonished at the people that have a hateful, competitive, mean spirit and then whine when they are handed the ****y end of the
