The Zen of Iggy

Great post today from Iggy about become winning players. Here's a sample:
And that's what it takes to become a winning player.... It takes a gut-check of our emotional discipline at the table to play each hand as they come, one by one, to shrug off the bad beats and play each hand in a vacuum. Don't think about the money, the last hand, the last hour. Just focus on playing *this* hand correctly.

Indeed, Iggy is right. Live in the moment and focus all your energy on the now instead of the before and after.

Masao Abe, Toshihiko Izutsu, Keiji Nishitani... Iggy? Yes, Iggy! Your name shall be added to the list of great Zen philosophers!
