Self Deception


Here’s another great insight into the psychology of the game from Sam…

A little snippet of French petanque psychology. It is called in typical French fashion … Managing the score (Ignoring reality). When the other team are ahead to avoid the pressure you simply ignore the score.

In your head it is a draw say 6/6 . Up to 13 it is still a draw. You are not behind, no pressure, concentrate on scoring points.

Do not fall into the “block the front up, they only need 2” frame of mind.  As I can never remember the score anyway it works for me.
