Default do you get what you want?

My girlfriend doesn't like me gambling. She says that it is something only disillusioned people do, and the whole point is to keep gambling until you lose. We argued about it for a while, and I finally convinced her to come with me to a casino for the first time in her life, in the hope that I could spark my interest in her. I set her off easy at the roulette with 50/50 odds on $20, and she just happened to WIN. She then looked at me with a "well now what" face, and I realized she just doesnt get what's fun about it. I then started thinking: even though I have a lot more fun at the casino than her, in the total balance of wins VS losses, it is very likely that she has a greater chance of keeping her profits (granted she knows the game, of course) than me, simply because she is not driven by the hopes of scoring large. I asked my friends and no one seemed to have a straightforward answer to my question "is someone who hates playing actually more likely to win that someone who loves playing?"

This is the everlasting question you will never get one simple answer. But you cannot deny that your emotions and desire affect your total profits My friend Daniel is a contributor for different websites and he wrote a funny piece about comparing casino playing to the stock market, read it and remember to keep your emotions out of the casino.

Your GF is not playing the game to earn money. She is just playing for fun and when a person plays a game for fun and enjoys the game then it is obvious that he is not concern with the outcome and by that time the luck sits on your GFs side. Play poker for fun not to make money believe me you would found some difference in your game plan which would be hard for your opponents to predict. Try it once it works.
