Default Getting Better at Poker In How Ever Many Days it Takes Challenge

Sorry, couldn't resist.
All this talk of extreme volume and 233453 tabling makes me wonder if many players are putting the cart before the horse...

But that takes actual effort, not just zombie patience!

i was sorta going to put that as my goal in the goals thread. then i didn't because i'm mad lazy and in san diego.

i think that the thing that you, me, and others forget is that many don't care at all about being good at poker, just about big piles of money. big piles of money don't have a prerequisite of being good at poker, not even in poker.

i think there's also a group of people like me...i definitely care about being good, but it's hard for me to always keep it the #1 priority in the face of having to make the rent.

btw i've left NYC for at least several months...wish i'd had a chance to play some live poker w/you. [img]/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

There are also perverse souls like me, where I'd say my primary focus has been trying to be good at poker, with the money as a secondary benefit. My focus may change.
