Yeah for sure, most consistant winning players are or seem to be quite smart. There are different kinds of smart as we all know, I wish I was a bit more book smart and less lazy I never had the ability to study properly even in school and college and winged it a bit tbh although I did pretty well I find it hard to study the game, mainly as I have too many distractions. Although having a disability (took ages for me to accept that) which is pretty bad to my body and causes lathargy as side issues doesnt help too much but I can be honest when it comes to study I am lazy.
Of course some people learn better by performing tasks and I watched an interview with a Asian American player (not a uber famous one) who said after a point he just spent whole days grinding away and thats how he learnt the game, bit of a rambling post here but its early in the morning I hardly slept and only on my second tea!
