Like many of you, I was once an amateur player. In fact, I was an amateur long after I believed I’d moved on to “advanced” play – again, like many of you. It wasn’t until I started studying no-limit Texas Hold ‘Em that I realized what had been holding me back.
Sure, there’s nothing promising in the NBA. Sure, there’s been years of ineptitude in the NFL and MLB. And sure, there is only a mirage of hope to be found in the NHL. But at least we have something in Triple-A baseball.
A person with low self esteem will be looking for negative signs in an event, conversation, or activity. Since they are expecting outcomes to be negative, if they cannot see a real negative item, they will either invent one or interpret a positive one as a negative. As an n example, think about someone who believes that I am about to hit them. I may see that they are about to be hit by a bus, and grab for them to pull them to safety. They may see my sudden move as an attack because they are already thinking that that is what they must expect from me. They may jerk away and be hit by the bus because they were already predisposed to interpret what I did in a certain way.

So my thought was we needed to somehow make our mark in this industry.
The best thing you can learn about bluffing is when to not bluff. If you are unsure about the situation and your “gut” tells you that you shouldn’t, then just don’t bluff. Only bluff when you are completely sure you have a good chance of coming out on top.
Playing scratch card games is merely a form of entertainment and self gratification without the heavy gambling at the Poker tables. If a person develops the right way to winning scratch off tickets, then he or she is ready to start investing money in scratch cards instead of wasting money on trivial things. Scratch-off tickets involve a strategy and victory is not always a guarantee.
