re: Poker & Gut feeling
Im not saying you act on you sould act on your gut feel feeling or anything like that. This post isn't about acting on it, its more of do you get this 'feeling' when things are going to happen? Whether its bad or good.
Assume you and your opponent are all in PF, you hold QQ vs AK, and your opponent spikes their A on the river. You have no control of the out come of cards because there is no more action on each street.
My question is do some of you get that weird feeling that its going to happen? That you're going to dodge 4 cards, only to have your opponent catch it on the river. And also, for the time it doesnt happen, do have this different feeling? A more calm feeling, like you know your hand is going to hold and you have nothing to worry about. I dont get these gut feelings all the time, but there are times when in this situation (all in PF, with no control of cards to come) when I just sense my opponent is going to win, or I sense that my hand is going to hold through. Not 100% accurate, of course.
I know its all mathmatics and this so called gut feeling of things to come might be a bit far-fetched. I guess its a bit of sixth sense sort of thing. Like how some people can sense danger or when something is going to happen. Or how some can just tell when its going to rain, for example.
Hopefully, this clears things up a bit.
