  • Solo Practice vs competition

    What percentage of your time do you feel should be devoted to personal practice vs. completing with others?

    I feel I need to practice about 4 to 1 on the side of private practice.
    Your thoughts?

    I like to practice at least an hour before I decide to play someone competitive. If I'm just practicing then it depends on what I'm working on that day and the amount of outside interference I have to deal with. Seems like everyone wants to talk while you practice.

      The only time I practice is when I can’t get a game. Which is almost never lol. (They line up to play me ugh). That said- Tall Paul we can play some when you’re here in Philly if you like. I love to test myself against a fellow 1p.org brother. (Unless Bill has me locked up).

                I never practice, lol, maybe that's my problem?

                I get too bored with no one firing back at me.

                  If I am not playing a tournament or a match I will carve out time to practice every day. Some sessions are relatively short, 30 min or so and others will last hours. IMO to get the most out of your game you need to practice.

                    It is hard to argue with someone that does so well in both tournaments, and gambling, but i have never had the mental make up to really practice the right way, so my only other way i believe is putting that pressure of losing your dough to make you, focus on what you have to do to get better. I'm always broke so i must be getting better right??

                        Jason I get beat up all the time gambling as well as being sent home early in tournaments, it happens to everyone. That said, for some players staying in acton is all they need and others require a diet of practice and action. Unfortunately I fall into the later group.
