We Lost our play Friday with KC. Today not much that looks very good. So it looks
like a no play day today.
Also I doubt if anything is going to develop later.
Poker and Ego
Its always healthy to have a solid ego when playing competitive events. And of course its
going to be tested from time to time when a nasty taste of variance hits you.
Saying that you have some players that outwardly display their ego at the tables verbally to the degree that it becomes almost pathological.
Poker is an interesting game in that for the buy in and that alone you can sit down and pretend your the greatest player in the world. And you see players do that all the time.
To put it in business terms the ease of entry into the business is minimal, usually ten times the big or small blind.
The point of all this is that when you see a player outwardly display their ego to where it becomes out of the norm….most of the time with that person there is a dramatic difference between how the player portrays themselves at the table and their ability. Most are not winning players. There are exceptions to this but that would be my general rule.
What generally happens with that type of player is that they show up..create a splash… with some players buying into their act..and then after a few months…or with some a few years…(just depends on how kind variance is to them) they disappear.
Ive said it time and again….the players you need to pay attention to ..are the ones that are there every day….quiet…unassuming…pleasant to play with…but for some unexplainable reason….get the money consistently.
