I went out in the BBT5 the worst way possible last night, stacking off with TP. So bad. But out of it again comes a realization: I have note been making decisions well.
I am terribly confused by this, as one of my greatest attributes until recently was the great escape. But recently, I seem happy to drive my hands into oncoming walls and complain that its bad luck that the wall is there. Ok, sometimes the wall does fall from the sky. But not always. Not every time.
Am I missing the discipline of folding, or is is a misguided goal? I wonder. Today, my goal is simply to be "right". I am not going to "try to win the tournament", but rather attempt to simply make the correct decisions, or by putting my opponent on the correct hand, I can take a risk. But in either case, I need to concentrate on being right, not the tournament. Lee has tried to convey this to me at times also. As was the case with the "biggest hand of all time" post and podcast.
Let's see what happens, shall we?
