I read a lot of economics and global finance type blogs (when not updating the network of poker sites!). One phrase which seems to come up again and again is ‘Kicking The Can Down The Road’, referring to putting off the really difficult decisions to another day / month / year. It struck me that this phrase can also apply to us online poker fans, not in terms of avoiding problems… more in avoiding those important steps required to take your game to the next level. After all its easier just to play, right? It is simple to blame your lack of progress on a few suckouts at critical times than it is to analyze your own game for leaks… it is easier to sigh and fire up another set of SNGs than it is to make sure you did not miss any +ev ICM situations.
