I assume you are familiar with concept of reciprocality in poker. If not read http://tommyangelo.com/articles/reciprocality/
I hear players often complain about being carddead for a prolonged periods of time. But does it make sense to be upset about it?
Let's say you limp/called pocket pair, flop a set and stacked an over-pair. Great success! Or is it? Would your average not brain-dead recreational player get different result? Quite probable that not. So have you really made any money here? No.
Same with Aces. You get them, you raise PF, you get few streets of value. Again anybody can do that. There's no money here.
Where we really make our money is by playing weak and marginal hands different from our opponents. We just fold them and rec players loose money with them over the long run.
So you make money by folding. If you play poker to make money then just be happy about folding. Every time you fold you make few cents. More opportunity you get to fold - more money you make. What's there to complain about?
Ok, you can argue that we also make money by value betting better then rec players. And I agree but how often do you get a chance to value bet? Not so often. And how big is the difference between your value bets and rec's value bets? Not huge. So majority of profit still comes from folding cause it happens way more often.
What is the point of this post? I believe this is the correct and logical way of thinking about being carddead. And if you embrace it you won't tilt cause tilt caused by conflict arising from lack of logic in your thought process. (See Jared Tendler's book for more on this.)
