Power to believe
Well, here's a question for all the poker players, Does believing in your own skills really matter, or is it the cards that matter? I Know the cards matter don't get me wrong, but what I'm trying to ask is really, Lets assume you had 3 good winning days, and they weren't the biggest cashes but they weren't small either, now with that being said it could all be rounded up to Variance correct? Or an Upswing, or some-sort of fate/destiny theory correct?
Now lets assume that you don't believe in any of this and you think it's your skills which enabled you to win (Follow me), then wouldn't that get your ego boosting, and is that not how one takes a leap/tumble (down to earth from cloud 9, with the Little People)-(Joke inside of a Joke btw)...Now lets assume you believe in Variance, then does that not mean that your on the positive end of it, and there will come a time when you'll be on the losing end of it, and there-fore skill really had nothing to do with it!
Lets look at my example I've bragged over and over about how I've turned $10 (From a Free-Roll, into 1300+), in less then 5 days, does this mean it was Variance and not my skill playing? Not the spots which I chose to shove bluff "Because I believed that the player was 85% going to fold"...Not my Aggression but Variance? I'm really asking because I felt like I was Actually Improving my game (Being that I was A losing player for the longest of times, Until I refused to deposit anymore on any site), and This "Upswing/Variance", takes all my glee out of the fact that I'm actually winning on the Lower MTTs, and the more I think about it, The more I feel like It's not me Improving but my luck, Like I'm on the +Variance, Does that make sense?
Any Thoughts are most welcome
Here's what they say on Shark-Scope about me btw
Does this all mean that It's not really me, but Variance? and that my skill had nothing to do with it?
