If you are a
normal recreational punter, Smartgambler advises against gambling.

All that matters is making perfect bets and playing perfect hands, time after
time after time.
Alternatively you could use the train of thought popular in sales, where they
work the numbers and consider that every call is making them money, whether
they get rejected or not. They know that over time, they'll earn $X per call,
therefore every phone call is worth $X. Similarly, every positive expectation
