Well, another oddity, and it might just be variance, is that I don't do nearly as well without warming up. I admit this may be subjective, but sometimes I come to the tables too excited to play my 'A' game. I often will play play money games early in my poker day just to get the donkey under control.
My game has changed a whole bunch lately, and each night I process bunches of new insights. These play money games actually help me solidify those new insights before I play for stakes.
I probably know, down deep, that before a big game I need to stretch it out, maybe I need to be reminded.
