If so, do you use a different strategy when playing?
It depends. Some players are more risk-tolerant than others. I like to choose a game that doesn’t seem like it’s too risky. I tend to focus on things that I’m confident will pay off in the end. I like to keep my winnings for myself. I’ll spend less money on prizes because I’m not expecting to win much money, and I think of each prize as a small investment. That being said, I do play professionally. I play at the highest level, though I don’t play in the biggest event.
Do you practice your roulette technique at a certain time of day?
My favorite place to be was before I went on vacation, when I was more relaxed. A lot of my losses are because I didn’t set a plan.
Did you get any advice from any of your opponents?
Sometimes the other person just didn’t win much money and didn’t play. That kind of hurt my confidence. Once the tournament is over, I try to win my money.

You can always learn more but that might take a long time. If you don’t have enough experience to play a certain game, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to master the system. Practice will do you some good, but it won’t guarantee wins, so learn from losses while you can.
What kind of lessons did you want to learn the most?
Getting better at being patient even when you lose. It’s not always the right time to start learning, but when it does it’s worth staying with it until it gets better.
Did you get any advice from your opponents?
People get upset if we say something about a bet being a fluke or something like that. They think we’re stupid and that we shouldn’t bet anymore, but we’re just playing. We need to do whatever it takes. I’d rather risk it and give it a shot in the hopes of winning it than take a huge gamble and lose.
What’s the one thing that has annoyed you the most about your life?
People are too quick to criticize other players when
