I gave up on filling in brackets about 10 years ago. The same time I abandoned fantasy sports. Now I just watch for enjoyment and not worrying about a single player's stat line.

Not convinced of that either.

People in this thread collectively are better than average, but if you open a random strat thread I don't believe many of the responders are "above average" at $1/2.

I think because trolls exist that llsnl strat is actually below the average skill set you would see in a room.

Trolling strat in here is the right move. Trolling strat in strat threads seems pointless.

He should for Chat Thread's proven ability to snap a cold streak; the longer you complain the more likely it is to end.

I've always associated it with hillbilly / hick / lowerclass / etc. way of talking.

Garick... Thanks for the crash course tip... Very enjoyable.

But the Egyptian episode of world history is tilting me as they repeatedly refered to the flow of the Nile in the wrong direction. "Down river" is not South for the Nile. Stupid America-centrism (where kids learn that rivers flow from North to South).

Yeah. They put a note about the oops on the screen, but it goes by super fast, IIRC.

On the plus side, my BR has a new peak after tonight's session. By $40, but hey, I'll take it.

Sabr, what are your thoughts on dropping down in stakes to get your head right? Less stress, better chances of booking wins, etc.

seroiusly sabr- either humble up or stop posting. Every one wants the best for you. You are clearly a deep level thinker at poker and a very nice guy. But your thinking right now is jacked and we are going around in circles and it is beyond depressing.

I think Ava and DCFC have both made solid suggestions SABR.
A change of scenery would probably be really refreshing, and dropping stakes temporarily doesn’t have to be the surrender that you’re deciding it to be. It might even help you analyze your game from a different perspective, which would be helpful when returning to your normal stakes. Mixing up location/stakes and playing against people who don’t know your tendencies would probably also be a big plus.
What’s your fav MLB team btw?

Oh don't worry we won't be going in circles for very long.

IIRC, you posted about reaching a "milestone" about a year or so ago. If it's the milestone I'm thinking of, I hope to reach the same one by the end of this year at 1/3 NL. At the end of Jan, it looked like I was a lock for this but I've had a pesky little breakeven stretch lately which puts it in more in question.
