I've been enjoying the "Make $200K/Year" thread, but wanted to ask a specific question based on something @thehammah
wrote in the thread:
"This is saying nothing about the hardest part of poker imho which is overcoming the fear of losing to actually win..
I think the vast majority of players have this fear and thats why they play a low volatility style. I used to drink this like coolaid. its just wrong.. sure you can eek out a small win rate doing that but to really be a crusher you have to use your post flop hand reading skills play looser in the right spots and push edges.. Full stop.."
I'm curious to understand what this means. I've been a rec player for over 10 years, play about one day a week, enjoy the competition and the money I make is spent on the family.
Since I cannot think of an example, I am obviously not push edges (at least not on purpose). I'd appreciate hearing from some folks who better understand this concept, especially if you could offer some examples.
