The secrets of preventing crapstress

4 March 2007

Pssst... Wanna know a secret?

How about the secrets of preventing crapstress?

Crapstress is your stress level while playing craps in a casino. Many people's crapstress levels go way up when they play, even if they don't have a lot of money at risk. This is due to the fear of failure. If other people at the table make a lot of money on a roll and they don't, then sometimes they inwardly feel that they have failed.

Wanna know how craps pros handle crapstress?

Let's find out!

Craps Pros always look at craps as a learning experience - even if they lose. They are just climbing the ladder of success - and it takes more than one step to climb a ladder. They don't struggle - they learn.

To you, craps should also be a learning experience. You can always learn something from every game. A friend of mine keeps a small notebook with him and jots down his thoughts every time he plays. He watches every player at the table and tries to figure out what their systems are and writes them down. Then, when his session is finished, he reviews everything that happened. His Crapstress level is low, because he looks at playing craps as an information-producing class, not a gambling session. He is then able to change and perfect his own techniques to produce a better profit in his next session.

You probably have enough stress in your business and personal lives, so you don't need any more when you gamble. Carry a notebook with you when you play and jot down your impressions of the way you play, and the way the other people at your table play. And the next time you have a losing session, don't get upset, but ask yourself the following five questions:

  1. How am I really feeling?
  2. Why did I play the way I did?
  3. What could I have done differently?
  4. What did I learn from this game?
  5. How will I play in my next session?

You should write these answers in your notebook so you'll have a record of what you did. This way you can refer to your "class notes" when you get home and prepare for your future class sessions.

Remember - keep your crapstress level low. You are constantly learning and progressing - going up the ladder of success one rung at a time.

Pssst... Now you know the secrets of crapstress!
