It's late and I'm tilting. Sorry if this seems basic.
Is a flip really worth it? I think that I have been putting money in with a slight edge in theory but when up against a made hand... brick out and loose a buy in... rinse and repeat.. It seems the grind is only effective against weak players... and seem to be most effective monetarily in a trapping or bluffing situation. I'm really starting to believe that 60/40 ... 54 /46 edges are just a waste of time... and very costly to my bankroll. Same seems to apply when the pot is big enough to call when you have the correct pot odds. Major risk... with only really long term upside after hundreds of like hands.
Aggression, bum hunting and extracting with the nuts... in the short term... seem to pay better than long term favorable odds spread over year. Is it really worth it?
What am I missing here? Any suggestions?
