Subject: Am I the best limit Hold'em player in the world?
I have been running so well in limit hold'em games for the past three weeks
that I am beginning to suspect, against all logic, that I am the best limit
hold'em player in the world. I've had good win streaks in the past but this
is a personal best record. Now I admit this has all just been in live
$10/$20, $15/$30 and $20/$40 ring games. And I know, logically, that it's
just short term luck. But emotionally, I still, sort of, kind of want to
believe I'm playing perfectly. So, before I do some thing really stupid
financially, would some one mind telling me I'm full of shit and this
short-term luck will inevitably run out, spin around and bite me right in
the ass.

Thanks for your assistance,

Irish Mike

Bucko, I think you may have stumbled upon the one thing that RGP can do
better than any other poker forum can, which is to give feedback in the form
of negative criticism (as opposed to constructive criticism).

Never underestimate the power of negative thinking.

You know that it won't last. And you probably know that when the change
comes the fall will be great. And you probably also know that when the bad
times come what you are experiencing now will help to pull you through.

Glad to oblige.

One of the most important attributes of a poker player is "selective
empathy," the ability to share another person's feelings, understand them
fully, and then to pull back and act based on the feelings one has
understood.

Like all right-wing whackos, you have no empathy at all, selective or
otherwise. You must have been getting Boston Marathoned by the deck.



Did that help?

Just ride the streak until you lose then hang it up for a week or two
completely. Good advice?

The people's flag is deepest red,
It shrouded oft our martyred dead,
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold,
Their hearts blood dyed its every fold.

Then raise the scarlet standard high!
Beneath its folds we'll live and die.
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

THE RED FLAG(James O'Connell, 1899)

The people's flag is deepest red
It shrouded oft our martyred dead;
And ere their limbs grew stiff and cold
Their hearts' blood dyed to every fold.

Then raise the scarlet standard high!
Beneath its folds we'll live and die.
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

Look 'round, the Frenchman loves its blaze,
The sturdy German chants its praise,
In Moscow's vaults its hymns are sung
Chicago swells the surging throng.

It waved above our infant might
When all ahead seemed dark as night.
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
We will not change its colour now.

It well recalls the triumphs past
It gives the hope of peace at last
The banner bright, the symbol plain
Of human right and human gain.

It suits today the meek and base,
Whose minds are fixed on pelf and place,
To cringe beneath the rich man's frown,
And haul that sacred emblem down.

With heads uncovered swear we all
To bear it onward till we fall;
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
This song shall be our parting hymn.



'Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer, we'll Keep the red flag flying
here.' The Red Flag

Based on your 'Folding Kings' post recently I suspect you are seeking
approval. So here it is, well done Irish Mike. Happy now?

You must be right bucko. I've played poker in 134 casinos and poker rooms
in nine countries and I thought it was to win money. When it was really to
get approval from strangers. Makes perfect sense. Thanks ever so much for
clearing that up.

Who cares what you do in casinos?

John's absolutely correct -- your posts here *scream* that you want
validation from strangers.

Not a stranger, just strange.
