Constant and continuous assessment

To play poker well, you must play in a state of constant and continuous assessment. You can never rest on your laurels; you can never let your guard down. Since things are constantly changing, you can't rely too much on old information. The way I'm describing poker here doesn't make it sound like much fun to play, but it actually is. When you're playing well, you achieve a deep state of concentration which is much like meditation.

Last Wednesday night, I achieved this state.

During current Stud session you were dealt 21 hands and:
- saw fourth street 20 times (95%)
- saw fifth street 17 times (80%)
- saw sixth street 9 times (42%)
- reached showdown 6 times (28%)
Pots won at showdown - 6 of 6 (100%)
Pots won without showdown - 0

delta: $2,799
balance: $1,043,298
