I'M FINALLY FREE!!!
I’ve been wanting to do it for 6 yrs, because no one thought it should be done. All my friends thought I would be the biggest donkey in the history of poker—which actually made me want to do it even more!
We all read books, post on poker forums
, ask experienced players “HOW TO PLAY THE GAME,” and most agree it should be played a certain way. I was going to be freed of all of “their” advice, one day… today was the day.
I’ve always felt handcuffed in the way I should approach certain hands, focusing on EV, pot equity, fold equity, pot odds
, implied pot odds
, and every other freakin thing a “good” player should focus on. Of course, all of those things are important, but sometimes we should do what we want, when we want, just because we want.
Today I just wanted… TO FOLD POCKET ACES PRE-FLOP IN A CASH GAME! Just because… for no reason, other than being able to say I did it… just because I said so. What was short-term –EV today, will definitely turn into long-term +EV in the future. The second I mucked those Aces, I felt like anything was possible from now on!
Free at last!
