Do you play following "recipes" of playing from books or else, or you have your own way of playing?
Personaly I have read and studied about poker enough things, but I am playing my way based to my judgement and giving attention to the maths of the game. For examble if I have AA and win all in, if I get again AA after a few hands I will be more carefull.
I don't think I follow a recipe, but I do try to take advantage of the dynamics of the people, styles and situations at my table. Also the previous outcome of AA vs the field does not change the current odds. Just a like a coin, if it landed on tails last time, doesn't mean the tails fell off and you can only hit heads.
It depends on the situation (type of game, opponents etc). I have read a lot of various poker books too, and my style of playing is the result of the knowledge obtained from books and my own experience. Poker maths is important, I also try to see through my opponents. As for "recipes", some of my "tricks" are borrowed from books/professional players' streams.
