So, I went bust today. I've been used it but....what do we all do after we bust? Well...after we've gone through our 7 steps of grief to acceptance(the most experienced get there quicker) we analyze right? We ask ourselves what mistakes we made and we ask ourselves what possibly was the reason why those mistakes were made.
So I play on ACR right...and my life is way to busy to just be on a laptop so I switch from Laptop in the day to Mobile at night. There's a special feature to ACR Mobile. A feature I've never encountered with other mobile sites or apps. A feature that's not available on the ACR Computer engine. You can fold a hand early and it'll send you to another similar table before the table you were on finishes(read that last sentence again).
Cool right? It might make some of you want to switch to ACR. Basically on ACR Mobile, what'll take you 5 minutes to get to a playable hand....I can get to in 5 seconds! ………….So I turned $14 dollars into $38 dollars last night using the ACR Mobile. Today, I went on the Laptop where you have to wait until the table finishes and I noticed a difference. My patience to get to a playable hand ran thinner. On top of that, when I did get to a playable hand I was more anxious in my play, making snap decisions that didn't pan out....so I went bust. I was thinking, is ACR Mobile really healthy for poker players? Could that feature be a handicap in disguise? Do you think you could switch and not grow more impatient or anxious on the Laptop? Would you play only on the Mobile? Would you play only on the Laptop? If your used to Mobile and when Covid clears you go to a live tournament, is working with that feature for so long gonna make you slip in real life tournaments?.....Lets discuss!
