If you know you call too much pre, and you know you're using crap BRM, why do you not change these two aspects of your game? Winning is more fun then losing imo.

If I was playing someone heads up and thought they had an edge I would be much more likely to keep playing if they seemed like a jerk. I would get competitive and want to take their money. If they were friendly, I would more likely think rationally and say gg.

Completely random. I just want to play as soon as possible. So, I guess it probably was usually the top tables. The only players I would avoid were ones that would sit out on me every time! I think it's pretty funny that so many regs sat out on me HU. I guess they are waiting for players who have never watched a cardrunners video or heard of 2p2.

Perhaps I've been misleading. I don't want to create the impression that I would just get home from work and fire up two tables of NL400 with my $1000 roll. 95% of the time I followed strict bankroll management. However, this doesn't mean much if you tilt and pretty soon it's 2 AM and you have your entire roll on the line playing some HU reg. So I guess my advice for the winning player would be to find players on tilt. Fairly obvious, but it seems like most of the game selection relates to looking at PTR. I think it's probably much more effective to find a player like me on tilt.

As for leaks in my game, I'm sure I've improved over time. However, If you are only 5% better than me and I'm playing my B game, you will win quite a bit over a 2 hour session HU. We all know that.

I guess it depends on how you define winner or loser in life. My faith has a big part in that. I have a long way to go in that area.

I think there are very few who are making that. When I read about the successful players (FoxwoodsFiend for example) it's no wonder they are having such success. Ariel would be successful at anything. I am just above average in intelligence (1220 SAT combined math and verbal). The top players are usually very intelligent and hard working. I also think PTR is sobering. If you look at the top 1/2 NL winners so far this month at full tilt, there are only about 20 set to make more than I do and that's assuming these players keep this pace. That's kind of sad considering I work in education.
