instinct / gut feeling? I'm trying to determine wheter instinct / gut feeling has any room in poker. sometime you are dealt low end or mediocre cards but your instinct tell you to play but common poker sense tells you to fold. what do you do? I have experimented with it and found it is 50/50 chance to get it right. what does this mean ? 1) my instinct are ok 2) my instinct is way off 3) discard instinct 4) better hone your instinct is there any technic or way of looking at things ( beside mathematecally) to improve or does instinct improve with experience. honestly i have not come accross this topic in any courses. this topic is keeping my mind busy during games and tournaments.
