Sooner or later, you will suffer a losing streak in your betting where everything just seems to go wrong. You start shouting at the TV, the referee and players! Family members notice your bad moods!
Firstly, you need to understand that losing streaks are inevitable for every bettor; including the very best professional gamblers in the world. You need to understand that unless you are hopelessly incompetent, you will eventually get back to winning ways.
Losing is just part of the game and losing does not mean you are a bad bettor. How you deal with losing is what is important. If you deal with your losses in a bad way, you should consider not betting at all!
When you suffer losing streaks, there are a number of things you should put into practice to ensure you stay calm and in control:
Maintain spending discipline. In betting, one key tactic you must adopt is not risking more than you can afford. Whenever you play, it is important that the amount set aside for betting is exclusively for this purpose, and that your daily life won’t get affected by losing;
Don't chase losses. This is one of the biggest mistakes any bettor can make. By staking higher amounts to recoup your losses, you are only placing yourself at higher risk of going bankrupt. You are already in a losing streak, so further losses are likely;
Don’t panic. Panicking while losing will push you to make poor judgements. You need to understand that you will not lose forever, therefore don't lose sight of the big picture and keep your head up;
Maintain your plan. Your betting tactics exist for sound reasons, so avoid changing tactics whenever you start losing and, finally,;
Take a break. In case you suffer an unacceptably long losing streak, take a break from betting. When you take a step back, you can clear your mind and review your tactics at your leisure without any pressure. Sometimes a break will even teach you that betting is unnecessary, stressful and not for you!
Finally, remember that self-discipline, record keeping, analysis and money management are the keys to successful betting, losing streaks included!
Remember, always bet responsibly
