Re: COTW - Execution In Poker

Decide what you are doing and why you are doing it before the action occurs. This prevents spite calling. One downside of this is that it can produce tilt as we always remember b/f and so we think ppl are playing back at us.
thanks for the first part, and agreed on the second half (i will 3b AQ sometimes and keep saying out loud "I will not stack this off if he shoves, I will not stack this off if he shoves..." =)

After reading your COTW, I see that I need to work more on discipline, set rules to help me with this, and I think I'll try talking out loud while I play so that I can drive the dog crazy.

for me it is more of a feel thing. My brain usually keeps some sort of running tally about how much I am up or down (I wish it didn't, but it does). I can usually just feel when I am close to my SL...maybe it's experience, or maybe I am rainman...who knows? =P

And do you really listen to 1 song everytime you play online? That would drive me nuts when it starts playing for the 3th time in a row lol.

But, very good COTW, tnx!
ADD/ADHD people tend to work very well listening to one song (without lyrics) on repeat for hours. It is enough stimulation to keep our brain pleased, but not enough to overload us. plus, the repetition is good for the brain.

glad you liked it =)
