re: Poker & Slooooowww Play
I have to jump on the wagon here. If 15 seconds is an unbearably long time to you, poker is not the kind of game you want to be playing. Decisions very often will take longer than 5 seconds to make, if you want to try to make the correct decision that is. Impulsive play can absolutely be had in less time, but will almost assuredly land you in the poor-house. I know there are plenty of amateurs and professionals out there who multi-table to the extreme, but in my experience, you can make more per hour sitting at one table and paying close attention than you can make at 6 tables playing like a robot. Take that fifteen seconds to think about what they might be thinking about, it's good exercise.
