I think, for the most part, you win because you play good poker while
using rational process.
Live or online, I'm not saying there aren't 'reads' because I know there are. But this 'intuition' is just alot of voodoo if you ask me, and is no more than a juicy rationalization for the gamble you just took calling down with your pair of 7's.
Hopefully, you made the decision to call WITH rational process, that is the information you have gathered at the table. If you're making guesses on how you feel, you're just gambling. If you're making guesses based on the
information you have gathered, it's really not intuition, is it? You're not operating on feel, you used rational process based on the information you gathered, right?
If you think you can 'sense' what your opponent is holding, I don't know, I just don't understand such a thing.
I'm thinking the more calls you make 'without the use of rational process' , the worse off you're game will be.
