I agree with Pup.
I do my best to avoid them.
I only pay to see the cheap flops - cause odds
are I'm going to miss.
And I try to make the odd hit really pay. My example would be similar to the one above - he hit one of his three outs, but I should win more of those than lose.
And, I don't play. If I'm losing I turn off the machine and try the next day, then the next. I don't play Saturdays anymore - I never win, and I used to lose quickly and often.
