Ricardo Salazar's Excerpts
May 09, 10:52 AM 2010
"...Tell me what is your interest: to beat roulette or to change the world?... I asked him in an emphatic way, to the new member from the Sistemist's Club, who was only 20-year-old.

To beat the wheel; (he answered, without a doubt).

-Go away and only come back when you get to desire both."

"There are many who just talk, few who actually make and a little, very little group who demostrate themselves winning with truly effective systems".

"I will die someday at the gaming table, I will die when I don't follow my system...

- What is such a system? (The new member of the club asked, pretty anxious by the way).

I AM THE SYSTEM.

Please; each one of you please repeat what I just say, so I can rest assured you have that in clear light: THE SYSTEM IS EACH ONE OF YOU."

"Right after a meeting, there was a new member who participated by the first time:

Mr. Ricardo, you advice us to eat light food, not smoking, no alcohol drinking, and the like, when we are at the Casino.

--Exactly. Once you are in, you must make only a few things; mainly being aware while betting and remain focused in what you are doing...

Plus, if you don't do as good as you would like at the table, at least you have avoided gluttony, smoking and alcoholism; vices as damaging as compulsive gaming."

“You must go alone, serious gaming isn’t a shopping spree, nor an art museum visit to talk about the pieces; and definitely not an escape to see pretty ladies at a bachelor party.

You must go alone, even taking the risk that everybody ends in disbelief if you win big.

The only exception is you must go one day with your sentimental partner; that day you will be closer to the perfect balance, or you will lose –the vision of the game, only for your anxiety to show off how much of a ‘macho’ you are.

These two are incompatible, only a few do understand.

Precisely, the ones who win the most are the ones who truly understand.”

“Human errors at the game teach us to be stronger; how many times because of a mental lapse we make the wrong bets and end up losing…

When is it time to go back home?

It is always good to have a motive to go back early.

When you have a motive to return, losing hurts less; and if we win, to withdraw from the table is easier.

When you happen to be tired and lacking ‘spirit’, go and have some nice sleep, but never inside the casino…”

Roulette and Marriage are incompatible.

Or complementary, if you wish.

Or they have nothing to do with each other; I interject, to have your reading attention.

When I came back home late, I didn’t explain my woman where I came from or what I had done during the day.

Some times the glove at the pocket from my jacket, or the white powder on my hand, exposed my duel at that other green felt, where balls, numbers and bills were mixed in game.

I think the Pool fashion and my “Ball 8” tournament were an excuse, for when gaming was the topic being discussed.

She never suspected I knew how to win sustainably in time and the fact my averages were positive weekly as well as month after month.


Roulette and Marriage are quite a thing.

In one of the two we want to impose over the almost impossible; we want to come up in victory at our will, over the supreme plans which make the “gambling curse” a constant.

My intention is not to be melodramatic. At the wheel the newcomers lose money and time; while at marriage we make them as an offering, and there is no complaining to destiny nor any valid strategy when things go wrong at it.

Despite all which can be said about it, I’d rather be a fool in love and not a fool for not having learned what love is.


Roulette and women are very similar, and unpredictable.

Each and every time I challenged a roulette table I did it fully knowing the always present risks, I measured my bet size and evaluated the consequences.

When dealing with women one isn’t as cautious.

I even bought two cues, in order to make my scene more convincing.

One to leave at the bowling locker and the other stayed at the car’s trunk; it was to get it home, as my point against obvious questions.

The one at the trunk was a cheaper one, since it was condemned to mistreatment, so I won’t get home late.

The mistreatment was, the boys were playing and hid it, the cleaning lady put it away (and I don’t know where it was), I loaned it to your friend -the guy who is learning, and similar lines which were less original and less effective, since there was always someone at the bowling who lent me a cue he wasn’t using, and I justified my delay for playing.


Roulette and Sex are alike, the orgasm is short and it is hard to stay in that state. The reality brings you back from there grabbing you by the hair.

Today I came back home late, without having eaten a proper dinner; my woman and the TV were waiting for me as usual…
“I was waiting for you, today we celebrate exactly 6 years since we first kissed…”

And right there in front of my pleased smile, she added… “I hope you make me remind how it was the first time WE DID IT”.

It didn’t help I told –exact dates included- I reminded her birth day, wedding anniversary and other meaningful days.

Right today was a “Glory day”, “Over the water”.

I made love before getting here; how to explain that when you are my age twice in a row is a lot…

“Dear sirs,

You have been invited to knock heaven’s bells or to live (as you have) simply chained without knowing it; because you have entered the big door, to the worst of the lands, the one from those who live randomness in full.

Every one of you has your only answer…”

“I agreed with your admission to the Sistemist’s Club, but I must reprove your conduct; I can’t believe a person holding your temperament does not have a winning conduct… by only thinking how it would be to withstand your wife and mother-in-law along with your 3 children screaming and running all over the house, only for a day, it makes our mission to be really child’s play…”
