They weren't born winners

By: abdi122 @ 04:38 (EST) / 1 / Comment ( 0 )

I use to ask myself (Many stupid questions, when I was younger)...To be honest, I still ask myself many questions...Usually my questions have no answers (And if they do have an answer, I can't answer them)...I know it's a visious cycle, question>ponder an answer>leading to more questions, and me scratching my own head:-P ....

When it comes to poker, one must ask themselves, what this person did to be a winner, while at the same time also consider why this other person is losing constantly...I've many times thought about out right quitting (Yes I've thought of it, and you more then likely have thought about it as well), so why don't we just quit? I mean if we suck then should'nt we think about leaving it all-together, just forget about it all, and fuck it and move on to something different? This I do have an answer for, as in many sports, one needs "PUT IN WORK"...Basket-Ball, one needs to working on his shooting/dribbling/cross over/persona, physical endurance, and so forth and so on...Foot-Ball, strength, stamina, and w/e football players work on...Poker is the same thing, one needs to work on his hand reading skills, thinking 1 step ahead, or 2/3/4 and so forth and so on...Now I don't know about the rest of you all, but I haven't been to the gym in a long time+I smoke+I just don't care TBH:-P  (Don't get me wrong, I'm not fat, I'm just plump, lol)...Yet in poker, I don't really need to work on my strenght, I don't need to work on my endurance, and I don't really need stamina....So I believe that puts me and you and the rest of the world at equal odds when it comes to playing poker (Don't you agree)? Yet there's a big difference between you, me, Da Sens Fan, KoingDonks, and WSOP main event champs..That big difference is that they put in the time required to actually study the game over a long period of time, and now it's paying back in dividens....So what kind of studying did they put in, right, that would be your question? Books? Mtt videos online? Trainning sites? Maybe right (I mean I can't tell you what Jason Mercier did to win, but I can assure he study alot)....I've put in my hours, and I've put in my time studying, I've bought books (Well a book TBH:-P )...Yet I do watch the training videos mostly on the weekends, and I do read articles, and I play a ton of PSO games....So what's my point, my point is..............Simply put not one person was ever born a winner, and realistically speaking, we may not be at the same level in terms of thinking, and you maybe ahead of me now, but I will catch up to you eventually, and then poker will pay me back in dividens myself...

I hope to all that read this, if you are feeling down, just remember my final words to you, If you study hard, and put your all into something, and play good poker and evolve with the game, you too can/will/shall be a winner...

For now gla in life and poker
