I love poker.
I think it appeals to the nerd inside me.
I know its hard to believe, but he’s in there. In fact, he lives right next to pretty much every line to the original Star Wars Trilogy and the absurd amount of Tolkien lore that I hide in my brain. You see I LOVE numbers and statistics. But more than that, I liking basing the decisions I make off those actuarial thoughts. Yeah, I used the word actuarial (told you that nerd was in there).
From that picture, there should be no surprise that I spend a lot of time planning practices every week. I look at positions that score at the highest percentage at the Olympic, World, or NCAA level, and then leverage that against positions in which we struggle to devise where to focus attention at practice.
Well, today all those hours got thrown right out the window.
Today was hot.
Not pretend hot like PCB Spring Break week either. Real Deal Holyfield, 96
