Gambling has been a hugely popular form of entertainment for many centuries, with people across the world enjoying the practice.
As an activity that is embedded in popular culture, it is inevitable that many people comment about gambling on a daily basis. Read on we look at some of the most inspiring gambling quotes.
Findlay still in love with gambling
Harry Findlay enjoyed many ups-and-downs as a professional gambler, but he insists he wouldn’t change a thing.
The former owner of a legendary racehorse, Denman, says that anyone who believes that gambling isn’t a good idea needs to have a rethink.
“Don’t believe it,” he said. “You’ve done the right thing being a punter. You’re a better person for it. We all know money can’t buy happiness, but gambling is about much more than just money.”
Brunson makes the right decisions
Doyle Brunson won the Main Event at the World Series of Poker in 1976 and 1977, famously scooping the pot with a starting hand of deuce-ten in the final hand on both occasions.
Brunson’s ability to read situations helped him win many tournaments and his inspirational words of advice should resonate with poker players of abilities.
“Try to decide how good your hand is at a given moment,” he said. “Nothing else matters. Nothing.” With millions of dollars in the bank, Brunson is a man worth listening to.
Black waits for the magical moment
Acclaimed author, Robert Black, has numerous passions in life including a strong affinity with the game of blackjack.
In his book ‘Blackjack, Me, and She’ Black perfectly sums up the adrenaline rush players feel when they hit a good run.
“Every gambler needs to hit that run one morning, day or night, when everything goes right,” he wrote. “And you will talk about that run until you die. When you hit that run it will be as magical and beautiful and empowering as anything you have ever experience in your life.”
