ESPECIALLY if I have reason to believe that applying my skills will lead to better opportunities later.
But perhaps more to the point, in situations where we can assess that we have a 60% advantage when we are risking our entire stack - in those situations, we can't even be 50% correct that we have a 60% advantage!
If we think we have a 60% advantage, we'll only be right less than 50% of the time, meaning that 60% advantage is substantially less )ie just a flip).
UNLESS you mean that we think we have a 75% advantage, and there we can be right only 50% to 60% of the time (making the real advantage more like 60%) , okay, yea, there I agree...
