Don't you guys want/wish for this forum to continue to be a good forum? Don't you want someone new (who might have alot to offer) to feel welcomed &/or motivated to write more for us? I don't know about the rest of you but my interest has been sparked & am patiently awaiting for more posts by them.
I think it's because it came out of left field, and I know I don't ever want to play a game I feel I'm not a part of. I want to be involved in the game, not just watch myself play and eliminate emotion completely, because then why even play? If I'm playing poker, it's because I crave the rush it gives me, the fun I have playing it. If I ever became a robot at a table with no personality, it's time for me to pick up a new hobby.
Better advice would be to fully understand that suck outs happen and to learn to stay cool under pressure, that's usually what the term ice in your veins means. Like Michael Jordan had ice in his veins, he was cool under pressure and able to come through time and time again.
