I have been pondering this for a little while. I dont like making big bets. I do them in NL when I have to but I never liked to. I get nervous and when running bad It upsets me .
Do you guys think there is any validity to maybe I just might be better in limit games? I dont seem to have a problem betting and raising when its a fixed bet and I have been enjoying the EO game at the bike like no other time in my poker life. Maybe I just dont have that inate big bet "stuff"?
I would related it to Davids thread on playing tennis. I was a really good swimmer in high school and won lots of races but I was the long distance person. The longer the race the better I did. We had this one workout my couch used to make us do every once in a while where we would swim
and when you were done you were finished with that session. I was ALWAYS the second person out of the pool.. Ahead of all the guys except the long distance guy specialist.. ahead of all the sprinters you would cream me in the 100 yard swims etc.. I had a talent for long distances. My muscle structure is called "slow twitch" witch means I cant move them very fast.. but I am very very efficient and dont build up latic acid like others do.
So maybe just maybe this also applies to games in poker? maybe I should just focus my energies on being the best fucking EO player in the world (ok maybe LA) and stop hitting my head against the wall in Pot limit and NL games that I might have a built in dissadvantage?
curious what y'all think?
