I have found stress to be a constant in gambling.  I believe that it is because a money transaction is being made; the more the money, the greater the stress.  I believe that this is a "law of the human condition" and its effect occurs fully on the sunconscious level.

I have heard it said that some people become addicted to this stress; the "thrill" if you will.  I think it is what Al Pacino is referring to in his "pucker-decimal point" speech; how its the thrill and not the result and he goes further and posits that there is more of a thrill in losing -- I can't seem to follow that logic though...

PLEASE DONĀ“T CHANGE THAT WORD, REYTH:  8) "SUNCONSCIOUS" 8)
The light  from the sun - and the moon -  cannot be seen at the casino. This in itself causes stress.

Do not make the betting decision.
Let randomness decide

Sometimes it is not random or thought selection it is just the "random" in mind and careless betting!

Stress doesn't have to be felt or seen as something negative. Stress keeps you on your toes, being sharp and alert. which make you perform better most of the time

True! Some decades ago I read this in a telephone box:
 "Stress is the non-specific reaction of the body to any demand made upon it".
 The telephone box stood in a centre of transcendental meditation.

The Canadian doctor Hans Selye introduced us to  "stress" as a medical term.

Fight or flight? Stay and play?

The great jazz violin player Svend Asmussen died recently (100 years old).
When he performed, he seemed of be extremely relaxed.
 But I once saw him just before playing:
Rather nervous, drinking coffee, and smoking.
 Numerous musicians have similar symptoms.  It might be difficult to find relaxed singers and musicians. As we all know, alcohol and other drugs are quite common among musicians. Are casino guests wiser?
