Yesterday we saw that there is a substantial difference between relative thinking and flexible thinking and perseverance in a state of relativism led to drama, or at least to bankruptcy. But do not think that conclusion without illustrating happy this postulate with a clear example.
When a key player thinks strictly relative, under the philosophy that is ambiguous and locked “if it might or might not” always referring to the player to decide whether to pay a proposal that asks whether a bluff, task facing a dangerous combination that can be twofold:
1) Motivation and no framework or reference: If the motivation is the strongest reaction bomb ever known to humanity, however this can be a downward spiral in the expectations of the applicant or dedicated, if you hit an excessively flat open at the opening of each session. It happens to dominate not yet initiated disciplinary aspects such as time limits, bank statements and circumstances and conditions of priority.
2) Indifference, maelstrom, inertia to an open field whose breadth and depth dimensions are unknown, or by his own undisciplined path not perceived. Is a dedicated case has lost its way and well abideth enlarging the size of the hole or closer to zero, or in the worst case, the need to play sick.
Known as frames or references to the stops that must not be crossed and impose: security, experience, testimonials of success and failure-success, reason and logic, and the limits of human nature.
When a player has taken extensive knowledge can conclude that everything is relative, especially when a variance is extensive and loses the helm because cross his EV + thoughts that transmute his scheme successful one confused, will result in doubling the negative effects of variance or squared raise: in other words, and in silver ruin. That happens and we are all susceptible to it one time. Because we are emotional beings and the perfect balance point there, but if people with resilience earlier than others and some that unfortunately perish not have that instinct, reflex or reflective attitude about what is happening and why. The difference is that a corrected early, stop to reflect and studied, some concomitantly corrected on the fly and others fall by the wayside.
When you have the feeling that a good game is punished to a + EV curve may not sound like much, especially if this is durable. So you tend to see reality in a distorted way, under a false criterion: any card can earn one point. For example, a tight attack with Doyle Brunson. Or become universal pseudoreglas specific experiences within a statistical framework unrepresentative. True, you can shoot, you can off 2-10 suited to become a full or flopped two pair but 2% will always lose 99.8% of the time. Losing reference of statistical inference deprives us of the dimension of space, we do not go down a path, but by a wide spot whose deviation is imperceptible for consciousness, but not for conscience, because the numbers of bank and speak graphic collapse. When the pit is dying bankroll becomes unfathomable, you lose track of depth, the diver has exceeded the limits very complicated and will successfully return to the surface because the oxygen reserves will be exhausted safely. Using the metaphor of open countryside, a part of going without perceiving lurching gait deviations, indefinitely lengthen the path of chaos.
Players that are left abduct the intensity of a sensation and the episodic become a repeated pattern of behavior: for example, the feeling of an all in or get a lantern casting. They are valuable resources but even professionals know when and how to do it successfully.
Without references, without a three-dimensional plane that defines width, length and depth, discipline becomes a relative reality and therein lies the danger. Sociocultural factors such as a sense of responsibility, expertise and ability to provide definitive make the difference between who react in time and who is not.
The jog conceptual relativism successful single of empathy in contemplation of a phenomenon, so the pre-Socratic premise that opened this post, could be saved if the subject deviates consider truth as relative to the share of individuals between a group whose principles by a widespread practice, are successful. From autosubjetividad convergent intersubjectivity that creates ties of relativity, both for good and for bad. So at all times our conception of truth should diversify into related technical truth and truth of reason or sense, finding a balance between what well be correct, it would be appropriate and consistent with their own subjectivity, leaning as possible in technically and economically, when it comes to poker, to an objectivity that is due to positive results. I’ve always said there is a unique pattern that is not correct and lifelong focus on a single reference, given that a value system and in our case may be, have positive references or basis relating to a fear that saves us the bit and makes us react in time.
With time and the terror of the variance, you learn not to relativize and yes to lean on you regarding establishing such frames in length, breadth and depth. When after leaving this hell of uncertainty and relativism individual subjective regain certainty, the conviction that you have lost aces in a tournament, but it is more legitimate to do all in with a 2-5 off, is that you recovered the way and with it, the beacon of discipline.
Had commented to a post on the positive model, but well thought out, the model is by definition contrary to relativism in the negative, by antonymy collides with the flexible model and then define that clearly glimpsed as the opposite of this speech until this point.
A Flexible player is one whose orientation points or references are: self emotional status, bankroll status, need for lifelong learning and health. Health is the primary determining factor when it exists the individual is an intersubjective be able to interact and read the environment. Everything is on, is bounded, not on dry. Consistent with a specific context that does not yield in a particular case the temptation to make it a universal rule and antinomian versus statistical evidence. The word adaptation and twin intersubjectivity in explaining success.
Relativism in the negative is not based application, subjective and emotional, disconnected from reality, therefore, the loss of the frame … and much more. In contrast, in the positive relativism is the connection with reality, the application of the best strategy open at all times. The ability to open and close with discretion to break a program perceived as smart and open a range according to statistical principles garantistas. Everything can be relative, depends on what. If on successful models is positive. If no criteria is profound relativism and uncertain consequences as to the ravages of evil.
Poor management of emotions, or triggers them, can lead us to project our environment bad poker session. Poker is a job or hobby that can be very frustrating but there is clearly an optimistic outlook and that is something that works long term, short term being almost as accurate than a gun show.
The variance, the fact in itself does not understand it, we can cause high stress that end up being projected outside but we learn to identify, manage and settle the roots.
This frustration will make us more susceptible, sad, obsessed, somewhat or very communicative, less tolerant, aggressive, unsociable and a long list of inappropriate behavior for the happiness of those who share their lives with us.
So from here take the opportunity to remember that once closing a session, be sure to leave all the “hub tilt” empty to avoid affecting those around you.
Learning to isolate social work, should be a task that had our top priority, we learn to monitor, detect and neutralize the triggers that will make the people around us suffer for our bad habits.
Poker can blow our frustration tolerance and capacity daily. It is important to work hard at it so it does not accumulate and finished wreaking havoc on a personal level.
A good mental health, the priority is to practice your favorite sport either as a hobby or professionally, without affecting your social environment.
“Honey dinner tonight with my parents.”
For cases like these is always nice to have the empty bucket tilt, do not forget, the best way to empty it is not filled.
I emphasis, because of motivation, frustration, mental or physical stress, anxiety or disappointment you can get to suffer is directly proportional to assume that what is poker.
Whenever we talk about the psychological aspect in poker we place special emphasis on the importance of perspective, optimistic about poker.
As a bonus, you have a video about optimism, which I think is very interesting
Loss of economic reality
It’s easy when you start playing NL levels above 200 that economic reality is distorted or disappears. Therefore it is highly recommended not to lose the north and keep your feet on the ground.
While it is true that high levels to play must have a little respect to money, that does not affect us or see if “blind” instead of tickets, this should not be mixed with everyday life.
Try not to pay more for things that are worth another price, even “blind” things have their value, and we must not lose track of reality.
Money has a value, and is a function of the fundamental law of supply / demand, Repay no more for things that do not deserve it, and remember banking and fulfill the law of cows Gorgas / lean.
Avoid comments like “a boat”, “is a blind”, especially if you can spare the feelings of others. It is very easy to lose the value of real money if you play boats “salary” every 2 minutes. Let us be worthy and foremost we respect others.
Trying to separate the two worlds, trying to see everything when you play in “Big blinds or big blinds” and when you are off the table, give the money value and respect it deserves, a tool of supply and demand. Let’s have a sensible economy.
Here ends the list of effects that is more prevalent, and therefore affect most players. Good luck at the tables!
