will try not to fool myself into thinking "I'll make this marginal calldown so that I can see what he does this with and play better against this player in the future." Even if it's 10BB to call and we only lose a couple of BB every time we call because we do win some of the time, I don't think it's a winning proposition because we have no guarantee that this knowledge will ever come in handy. This is just my own wish to "see what he has" but rationalized in a way that seems like we're making a good play to exploit our opponent in the future. As long as I keep that in mind, I can exercise "Impulse Control."

You will find that in poker, more than anyone else, the most important opponent is you. Even if your poker skills are lacking, if you have the desire and the patience to study you will get better and eventually succeed. Conversely, even if you're best player in the world, lacking self-control can make you go busto. This is why when I set my bankroll requirements I stick to them. It's not just because I want to follow good BR management, but also to prove to myself that I can follow my own advice. This is part of improving my "Willpower."
lol like how i started that got u to read my post ty .

Preach on brother or sister (I didn't look and I know plenty of female truckers LOL).. preach ON!! Wink

No really, I swear you musta been in my head when you wrote that.. LOL


Sometimes I think I have some skill at poker.. then i realize that whatever skill I do possess is always mitigated by the fact that I HAVE NO WILLPOWER OR PATIENCE!! LOL

I think this is why I prefer ring games and SnGs... I mean, I can keep control of myself for a LITTLE WHILE... although i find it tough to endure (and be smart at the same time) these 4-6 hour tourney nightmares!

I am working on it though... I PROMISE!! LOL
