You’re heads up at the final table at the World Series of Poker. You’re dealt pocket aces and
your opponent raises you pre-flop all-in. Naturally, you immediately get that tingly feeling running throughout your body like you’re back in middle school and the bottle just stopped on you.
So, what do you do?
The only thing you can do – call!
When they river a set and you get that burning sensation in
your chest like a 3 am Taco Bell run, you begin to ask your self the age old question…..”did I make the right choice?”.
Some people would say it was the wrong call because you lost and it’s as simple as that.
Not me. I live my betting/sports/fantasy life as decision based over outcome based.
Why? Because we cannot control the outcome, but we can control the
decisions that are made and why we make them.
If I make a call that is rooted in facts and sound objective judgment, I can live with the outcome.
This is especially prevalent in baseball as everyone knows in this sport more than any other, ANYTHING can happen.
TRAP GAME (STAY AWAY)
Jays are coming off of being NO HIT. Soroka has a road ERA of 1 but has a HOME ERA of 4+.
