Every day, a huge number of people around the world place bets — whether in a bookmaker's club or online. But few people get a decent income on bets. This is due to a number of typical mistakes of novice players who step on the same rake. Professionals are only those who choose the right strategy, distribute the pot and know how to control their emotions.
Choose a bookmaker
The very first step of any novice player is to choose a bookmaker. This is an important step, as a well-chosen bookmaker is the key to a successful long-distance game. The site should be convenient, because sometimes you need to make a bet in a few seconds. The bookmaker must be reliable, the limits and the actual payout of the winnings depend on it.
Get some practice
After choosing a bookmaker, novice players immediately rush to top up their balance and guess events. This is a gross mistake. Most likely, the bank will be emptied very quickly. When a bookmaker is selected, it is better not to rush, but to try to play for fun. Take a piece of paper and play on it. Record all the events, odds and amounts that you would like to choose on this site. This way you can test your hypotheses, analytical skills and calculate the amount of bets without using real money. Look at the result in a month or two. If you are in the black on the leaf and there is a positive trend, you can switch to real money: the probability that you will win is higher. This training will save you money, nerves, and also give you the opportunity to try out different strategies.
Decide on a strategy
Be sure to choose a betting strategy. Chaotic bets that are not connected to each other by some common logic, as a rule, go to the income of the bookmaker. There are different betting strategies for beginners. All of them focus on the proper management of the bank and the consistency of rates. You can choose any strategy. The main thing is to stick to the chosen direction. Some strategies only work when used for a long time and on a large number of bets. Frequent changes in strategies can not only not improve the situation, but also significantly reduce the bank.
In online betting, it is better not to be sprayed, but to choose one or two sports. It is pointless to bet on tennis or football if you are an expert in volleyball. Focus on what you are sure of, so you will win more often.
Distribute the bank
When the decision to switch to real money is made, you need to determine the amount that you are willing to risk. Earnings on bets can not be guaranteed to be predicted, so morally you should be ready to part with the invested funds. In any case, you can not bet the last money in the hope of a quick win. In the case of a one-time major loss or a series of unsuccessful bets, you may want to enter more funds to win back. This desire cannot be indulged. We need to wait for the next month and start with a clean slate, forgetting the previous losses.
The most frequent and, as a rule, fatal error of working with the bank is the all in rate. Such bets are made mainly on emotions and counting on luck. And luck is one of the last factors of success in betting.
Do not give in to emotions
It would seem that this is an obvious advice. But for some reason, the vast majority of players suffer precisely because of excessive emotionality. Work out a procedure for yourself in case something goes wrong, write it down on paper and follow it every time. The same is true for situations of sudden success. Don't let your emotions get the better of you.
