Playing the Rush

In the context of gambling, the phrase «playing the rush» means placing large bets when on a hot streak. Just as players are more likely to give up and end their session when faced by a cold streak, they are also likely to start firing and placing very large bets, even if they are normally not a high roller, when on a hot streak.

In general, experienced players avoid playing the rush or making any other bets based on their emotions. This is because such bets can quickly lead to the loss of the player’s entire bankroll. Instead of following their emotions, veteran gamblers use logic and strategy. For example, when playing blackjack, they will stick to basic strategy and will base their bets on a well-known betting strategy, such as the Martingale or the D’Alembert.
