Re: No problem, let's move on

My very old friend, Christopher Marlowe, realised we all differ in in how we see things when he wrote:
'And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect.
The reason no man knows; let it suffice,
What we behold is censured by our eyes.'
For my part, I have neither a 'deadline' nor a 'BR increase' goal nor a 'timeframe limit'. These concepts have no part in my methods. I certainly will not play if I become tired or the game gets too slow or over-crowded. That's all. I just restart from where I left off. I don't know how many hands I have played in my life. Let's say it is 4,000,000. At some stage I have to play hand number 4,000,001. Whether I play it in the next minute, month or millenium doesn't really matter, so I might as well play it now and get on with hand number 4,000,002 et seq.
To the standard enquiry of, "How did you go, today?" I now find myself saying things like, "I dunno, I haven't cashed in." or "I haven't checked yet." I, like everyone else, used to reply with the typical win or loss for the session answer one expects to hear. Now, though, sessions, days and I quess what you call timeframes, are so irrelevant that I no longer think in their terms. In a way I am playing one continuous 'session' with a whole range of time delays between hands.
Placing constraints on myself or my game would be pointless. The more I play the sooner my BR reaches a new high. Bets are scaled so safely, that a dealer's hot streak is a mere ripple on the surface. That I might gain something to improve my game is my reason for being here at BJRnet.
If I was allowed to install a computer to play for me I'd do it. Seeing that I cant, I try to play as good as one. I emote about as much as a computer, probably a little less.
Best wishes and good luck
