Just read a fantastic, eye-opening, blog entry about variance in poker. I highly recommend you read it if you are serious about playing poker for a living.

Which statement below is most accurate:

A) They (The Pros) aren’t as good as everyone says they are.

B) You aren’t as good as you think you are.

    C. All of the above.

    I was playing 1/2 with a fun crowd today and a new guy sat down and said “I’m good enough to be lucky. I don’t act like I know what I’m doing.”
    I replied. “I’m good enough to be lucky, but I do act like I know what I’m doing.”

    I won money today. I’ll lose some next week. I’ll win some the week after.

    hey pokerwiz, send Goldfarb a free one and MAYBE he’ll write about it. But be careful, we’re pretty honest here, and I would encourage him to tell everyone if he thinks it sucks and is a waste of time. now please shooo! you spammer types aren’t too welcome around these parts. send me an email if you’d like me to explain why your comment is so offensive to merit such a reply, and why, as a result, we start any relationship under the assumption you are a shithead.
