Don't blame the players - blame the game
24) Do you take notes on your game after a session? If, yes, describe.
That's easy. I don't take notes on my game after at session. I think about it and think about what I did wrong and right and what I need to work on. But no notes - it is all in my head.
25) How much is your evaluation of your ability as a player influenced by results? Describe.
Ouch that was a nasty question. I think way to much. I try not to be influenced and sort of retain a steady confidence. I also try to measure variance to see 'how I am doing- hot and cold' but I still feel like a loser when I lose. In general I think my confidence is too low. I am struggling to feel confident even when I am on a long winning streak. But after at few days I usually manage to inject logic and accept my role in the poker hierarchy: Steady (but not really big) winner at the midstakes. Right now is a good example: I have been playing 10K hands so far this month and I am up around 2K (ok without being fantastic). But my all-in EV graph tells me that I should be at zero... And I have seen all the hands that tells this story (set under set, set vs. rivered gutshot (2 times!) and 5 times all-in with kings versus aces...) So I know that the EV-graph is not 'accurate', but it still bugs me a lot.
26) Do you exercise? If yes, on average how often and generally what do you do?
