This is just too cool. (my ego loves being transported in spirit to places like poker games, grin)

Although...if I had been there in body, we might have won. I....my dearest, SC..am one HELL of a little poker player.

One tip: (not on betting, but on dp) You're right - you cannot NOT think about dp. It takes major training of yourself but what you're eventually aiming for is to successfully REPLACE the dp-thinking with thinking of other natures. The instant you tell yourself "but no, I'm not going to focus on dp right now..." you are focused on dp.

You have to GRAB hold of your intentional thought process and turn ALL your mental energy to something else - it may not last for longer than five seconds. Keep doing it.

Keep doing it.

Fail. Try again.

Keep doing it.

Get mad at me and swear this will never work.

Then keep doing it.

After months and I am not kidding, MONTHS or a year even...of continually FIGHTING for the control of your own mind, forcing your attention elsewhere even though in a matter of seconds or minutes, your attention will swing back to full self-obsession....keep forcing attention elsewhere again
and
again

and
again.

Royal Flush. IF you keep doing it. Over and over and over.

Peace,
J

Come to my house and play poker with my brothers.

It usually ends with one of them chasing another down the street with a golf club in hand, suspecting someone had stolen the money.

You won't be focused on DP but instead your own survival.
