First, never bet anything you cannot afford. Second, know your capabilities, and your opponent's. To start with, since neither of you are pros, he has an advantage with the automatic. There are too many other variables to really know until you try, but it sounds like he may have already out psyched you. Believing you will win is the only way that you will get it done.
