Hello John.........Great question!
A question I ask myself all the time. I do believe that you can go too deep..... (paralysis of analysis)
Balance ......a fine balance. I know it when it happens. It's soooo easy to fall off that tight rope or stay in the groove.
It's funny...... that my biggest wins have come from playing the smallest amount of money and numbers. Because I don't track Evening numbers as hard as Midday...maybe 75%.........and yet... my biggest all-time wins have been at night. But I win more times on Midday.
I have never won any large pot.......walking in the store with a determined feeling or look on my face. I'm a dry-fly Trout fisherman.... and if I can get into the same groove as when I'm catching the big ones........that's the same Zone I win in. Sort of a grin on my face. You can't fake it.
Sometimes it comes from Tracking and Study. Sometimes Winging it.
I'll tell you a secret.....here just lately... after I've studied real hard and finished my best picks.....I have started making another list of what I call ...."Stupid Numbers." Really weird how close they are and how often that works. I know one thing....You have to stay in the "Fun Zone" or you won't win! Hope and determination don't get it.
Hope that helps someone......find the "Fun Zone" !
