idk how I still feel about the "variance" issue since joining about 4 years back, BUT
, I will at least say this... I took the time out to go through my thinking/posts/threads, then analyzing my play, reading (and then re-reading...) books/articles by pros and doing it THEIR
way, NOT MY WAY
(even when it didn't make sense to me at the time because there must be SOME reasons why THEY ARE pros and I AM NOT
) and then adjusting my playing style accordingly...
My win rates/amount/bankroll have skyrocketed over the the years because of the aforementioned...
Instead of complaining, take a deep honest look at YOURSELF and ask "COULD IT BE ME
?"... maybe it's the stakes/field of players/mood/etc... most people are playing. Maybe it's your "selective memories" kicking in (you know, like when YOU
at some point cracked someone elses
AA with a 72o... remember that?) or maybe it's people playing at play-money
(thinking it plays like REAL money
) or freerolls - with a MASSIVE field of players -
(where people don't give a care anyway... it's free remember?) or at microstakes
(where people can still afford to be/play like fools...) This IS called variance and I even have my days where I want to throw my computer in the garbage...
Don't be the little B* whining in the corner complaining & sucking on your thumb... look past
your "bad beats", move on
, **GET BETTER**
, come back smash these donks that play against the odds/positions and be happy knowing that in the long run/over a range of hands you will eventually be a better player for it....
My post IS NOT
directed at ANYON
E in general... just sayin'....
