How Much Money COULD He Have Made?
If you achieve high POT figures, you are telling me three things:
1. You have had, maybe, a couple of dozen bets at most,
2. You are way too selective with your selections, but most
3. You are not making as much money as you could be.
Whenever I try to explain this to a punter down at the pub, they think
I am totally insane.
"What Do You Bloody Mean That I Could Be Doing Better? You Tell Me How
Many Other Punters Can Achieve 90% POT?"
Generally, that is what I hear, when I open my mouth about this
subject. Look, missing a good bet is as bad as making a bad bet. There is
little excuse for either. We all do both, but hopefully we don't make that
same mistakes twice.
For those who disagree, I ask the following:
Tell me why I should turn my back on a positive expectation bet,
regardless of the return? Maybe I should not make the bet, because I may
damage my strike rate, or may lower my POT, and as a result, won't sound
as good when I brag to my mates. RUBBISH! There is no such thing as the
gambling Olympics; you are not going to get an award for having the best
POT figures or strike rates. I shall repeat this once more.
