I felt you would agree. I really believe people interested in trading would be well served to learn the internal skills before spending time and money investigating different methods.
I like to play little tournaments of poker on the Internet.. a 10 player table. Each player starts with the same amount of money. Then it becomes how the player manages their money "more" than just good cards. I most often come in the top 3, if not I know I need to take a look at my decision making. Sometimes it is as simple as I am playing a game without enough money pressure, and as a result I start making sloppy decisions to spice up the game and keep me awake.. playing good poker can get boring if you take the time to play correctly.
