      reading this article i found out i am a grounded player.
      does anyone have any tips on how i can change the way i play. Should i be more aggressive when the time seems right, or fold if i know i'm beaten as this is one of my flaws, i will carry on playing not realising that they could have a possible striaght on the flop or turn because i'm focusing on my hand. its easy to see i do this but harder to put it into practive.

      I'm much of a grounded player, too.
      Though I don't find it worrying, as it is said grounded players are moderately winning which is just fine for me.
      All I want is to get some extra income to spend and actually I don't really care whether I play the perfect game or not - as long as I am winning.
      After all, grounded is much better than uninhibited, and reaching the pro level just requires too much time and commitment which I cannot spare..

      I'm in between those. It's hard to really seperate the value of the chips from the chip amount itself (grounder), but nevertheless, I never play with fear and throw money in whenever I feel it's +EV not caring about variance (pro), yet I do like to make my plays from time to time just for fun and bring some variation to my play (uninhibited)

      So, I don't know where to classify myself.
