Tips to Playing Safe at CSGO Lounge
To prevent errors at the very beginning of the game and protect you from possible losses, want to bring here the 5 basic rules (councils), followed by professional players at their own game.
1. Stick to its strategy and never change. You should clearly identify your bank for themselves and a single bet. Then forward! One rate should not exceed 3% of the total pot. Determine approximately the amount of rates that you will do this week. Mark its strategy and start to bet. And that day, when you’re without good cause will increase your stake will fall during the day your Empire. Only in Hollywood films the guy puts the entire Bank and wins the jackpot. This never happens!
Example of 2000 USD for every match no more no less!
2. Avoid “megalomania,” feel good luck. Each player begins a streak of luck, that is when putting in any event, the bet wins. Here you can consult only one keep! As soon as you started to lose-stop! Perechekayte period and forget about rates and ratios. Only after that start playing, otherwise the “tilt.” “Tilt” is a term used in poker and means the negative psychological state of the player. In this position, the player thinks but is not the head of emotions. About the consequences, in this condition, of course, no one thinks. And they can only be pitiable. You lose a bet, one by one, while increasing each of them, and eventually even without the Bank at all. In other words, you bankrupt.
3. Make your prediction for those events in which you have expertise. Don’t bet on everything, only that you close. But do not forget to monitor statistics and news continuously. If your bolts pass through a period, wait, don’t bet on anything, and then you’ll be “on horseback.”
4. Don’t make your prediction for the loved and hated team. If you want to earn money, then this classification will have teams forget. Not worth betting on losing “Vp” only because you are rooting for Navi. Such a path would lead only to crash.
5. Betting is not everything that you have in your life. The stakes are not worth the build their lives. Remember that in addition to the rates you have family, friends, relatives. Learn how to mix the game and rest. Good luck on the rates!
