The Author examines the games within the limits and points out the importance of the sense of freedom that the subject must live and feel for this activity to be re-creative and to be able to allow the distinction between internal reality and external reality. In the space in between that is created the ego reaches a representative and sublimatory identity. The game of limits, however, appears as an activity that tries, through external risks, to deny a deep void. The game becomes a fetish which is used to hide the missing and gives the subject a feeling of ecstasy, of vitality and a conviction of eternity. The gambler is presented through a clinical case. The author uses non-traditional techniques from a psychoanalytic point of view in order to relate to the patient and help him to get out from the compulsion of repetition.
