E-52: Bad Bets

Don't Take Insurance in Blackjack - Only hits 31% of the time

Not Doubling Down when it's offered
Greater than 50% chance of winning when you take it

Not playing optimal strategy in Blackjack
It's Math.  You will lose more money over time if you don't

Not playing optimal strategy before the flop in Poker
Not raising when you've got a strong hand allows more players with weak hands to stay in and potentially catch what they need in the river to beat your stronger hand
