DJ's Evolutionary Decision Meter
For fun, I am inventing my Decision Meter. As I figure this thread could easily fall into temporal oblivion sooner rather than later, but I may want to still reference it, I hope to enlist your input.
Since I just invented it, I think it should at least be sketched out for posterity.
My decision meter is a Dynamic (real time) indicator of how I am feeling at any particular moment in a decision process. Do not mistake this for a feely meter (happy, sad, tilt, pissed).
It takes into account a lot of those 'it depends' dynamics that vary from moment to moment at a table. It include reads, patterns, position, and temperament.
The meter will start with these readings on the dial;
Sound as in making a sound decision.
--All folds are usually made when the meter is on 'sound'
Solid, as in playing a situation solidly. Text book stuff.
Gamble, the reads, patterns, position, temperament, and the stars all align to produce an opportunity to be bold. This is the place of great reward, or great misfortune. Make it or break it.
As the dial is currently written in pencil, I request suggestions for alterations as this notion evolves.
